Come revel in the serene simplicity offered at this upscale and expansive lakefront home. You and your group of up to eight will fall in love with the beautiful natural surroundings and enjoy stunning lake views, on-site golf, and shared amenities, like a seasonal pool and tennis courts.
Located less than a mile east of Groveland, in the private, gated Pine Mountain Lake community, this inviting home puts you 26 miles west of Yosemite National Park (earning this area the title of "Gateway to Yosemite") and provides you access to outdoor fun year round. You'll also be within close proximity to shopping and restaurants in town. And Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is only 54 miles away.
Step inside and immediately sense the warm, welcoming atmosphere. After you're settled in, lounge and get your bearings on the plush sectional sofa in the cozy den area in front of the gas fireplace in the winter. In the summertime hang out on your private deck, accessible through wood-framed sliding glass doors, and take in the beautiful surroundings of your new home away from home. If temperatures rise beyond your comfort level, the central AC will keep you cool. And please note that, even though more than a light dusting of snow is unusual in the winter, you may require 4WD or chains.
This home also features a comfy living room where you can enjoy movie night, provided by the flatscreen cable TV. Get unplugged, thanks to the absence of the Internet, and give yourself a true break from the noise and over-stimulation of the daily grind.
The dining area, with its attractive wood table, featuring regular and bench seating, offers ample seating for your large group, while the nearby breakfast bar provides seating for three. The kitchen invites you to come in, make yourself at home, and whip up a classic culinary creation that's sure to please your guests. With high-end appliances, including a dishwasher, you'll find this area very conducive to easy meal prep and cleanup.
This four-bedroom, four-bath home comfortably accommodates eight guests. The master bedroom boasts a spacious king-size bed, while two more rooms each feature a queen bed. The fourth bedroom has a double bed.
The four full baths, offering combinations of walk-in showers and shower/tub combos, as well as single and double sinks, all provide you with more than enough space to take care of morning preparations with ease and to perform your nighttime rituals before bed. This home also provides a full laundry room, complete with washer, dryer, counter space, and utility sink, for even more added convenience.
Pine Mountain Lake is an "all-seasons community," so you'll find plenty to do, no matter when you stay. The 202-acre lake itself, with six miles of shoreline and three sandy swim beaches, may be all you need to thoroughly enjoy yourself. In addition to hiking and horseback riding, you can fish for trout. Be aware that, although there's a private dock perfect for fishing and jumping off of, personal boats are not allowed. Not to worry, though, as rentals of all types (kayaks, sailboats, paddle boats, and fishing boats) are available for rent at the marina.
For a change of pace, take a dip in the shared seasonal pool, or work in a game of tennis at the shared courts. And don't forget about the on-site 18-hole golf course, available to guests for a discounted fee. But since you're so close to Yosemite, be sure to make the drive into the national park for hiking, nature viewing, rock climbing, or to simply enjoy nature's splendor. And for a little indoor fun, drive to Black Oak Casino, just 27 miles north of you.
