Modern Home with game room, pool, lake access - near Yosemite

Come for a memorable vacation at this home in Groveland, CA. With nearby lake access, a game room with a Ping-Pong table and more, and access to community amenities including a swimming pool, this three-story house has accommodations for up to eight guests to enjoy!

Located in the quiet Pine Mountain Lake community, you'll enjoy on-site horseback riding, golf, pool, shared tennis courts, and myriad hiking trails through the forest. This is a great place to stay for a visit to Yosemite National Park, which is only 25 miles away.

The house itself is bright and comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Grab a seat on one of the couches in the living room to get comfy with a book, or turn on the cable TV to watch a DVD or VHS with the family. This home also offers wireless Internet so you can stay connected. Better yet, the collection of board games is a great alternative for family bonding.

Around the corner, the fully equipped kitchen lets you cook whatever your heart desires, and a dishwasher makes clean-up easy. Six will fit around the dining table for dinner, and you can always make room for a couple extra chairs.

Out the sliding glass doors, you'll find a large deck with a gas grill, patio table, and furniture for sitting out and enjoying the sounds of nature and the smell of the fresh pine breeze. At night, head down to the gravel patio to enjoy ghost stories and s'mores around the outdoor firepit (be sure to check out the stars).

Downstairs is a large game room that will provide entertainment for hours. Here, you'll enjoy a pool table, Ping-Pong table, foosball, and a dart board. A den upstairs provides a nice sanctuary for getting work done or just relaxing in quiet. Also, a table here makes for a great place to play poker!

Four bedrooms and two full baths make this home suitable for up to eight travelers. One bedroom has a queen bed with access to the deck, and the second and third bedrooms feature two twin beds. A shared full bath is easily accessible by both rooms. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a king-size bed, dual bedside lamps, and a full private bath.

A private washer/dryer are available for any laundry you need freshening up, and central A/C keeps the house comfortable in the heat of summer.

This house is perfect for a family or a group of friends - Pine Mountain Lake offers a ton of activities in its beautiful, wooded landscape, such as fishing, swimming, and boating on the community lake (though please note that motorized boats are not allowed and that guests must rent from the marina). You might go horseback riding at the equestrian center, or play a round of golf.

Nature enthusiasts should make a visit to Yosemite National Park a priority - the edge of the park is only a 25-mile drive away, and around the park you can see stunning viewpoints, learn about the natural history of the park at the museum, and witness the towering presence of the Giant Sequoias in Tuolumne Grove. Your home is so close, you'll be able to make it back by dinner! And for even more activities Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is 54 miles away and Black Oak Casino is just 28 miles away.

Whatever you have planned for your next vacation, you'll be able to do it all here - book today!

We’ll stocked kitchen. Game room with plenty of activities. Nice card table. Great for kids. A short drive to Pine Mountain Lake.
Nicholas G. May 2022
Nice and cozy it was just me and my brother in laws and we were very happy with the property. Make sure you bring necessities coffee filters, spices, etc. overall we were happy with the cabin, location, and all these above. After looking at other reviews I must re assure you it was a very clean and spacious cabin so don’t be worried about others opinions. Yes, it’s a little older but has just about everything you need! We will definitely revisit!

Location of house is good, taxi boat at lake & take a joy ride for one hour & spend time at lake was fantastic.
April U. Sep 2021
The layout of the house was nice, different as it was 3 levels. Fun game room in the garage, however some things didn’t work properly. Dart board led screen didn’t work and darts didn’t stuck well. No batteries for the basketball game. Man on foosball broken. House wasn’t filthy but could have used some cleaning of walls and carpets. Kitchen could use some mixing bowls and Clorox wipes for counters, or more towels. Overall was a nice stay, but house could use a little cleaning.
Manager response:
We appreciate you taking the time to leave your review with us, April. The carpets are being replaced with laminate flooring, and the property manager is looking into your other concerns so we can schedule a time to get them addressed as well. Thank you!
Nader H. Jul 2021
The place has the basic needs to survive a holiday weekend but could use some upkeeping given the rental rate. The living room carpet had ugly dirty stains all over it and needed cleaning or replacement. Also, there were spiders roaming around the downstairs rooms that scared our boys who refused to sleep in them. We dealt with all that, but what was really disappointing is the HOA gate people who forced us to enter on the same lane dedicated for checking in visitors and we had to wait over 30 minutes every time we leave the community and come back. When we politely asked them if they can route guests with existing permits through the lane dedicated for residents, they were very rude and dismissive of our suggestion. We will never rent at Pine Mountain Lake community again!
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Nader. We are so disappointed you were unhappy with your accommodations. Unfortunately, we have no say in how the gate entrance is run and apologize it was such an inconvenience. The carpets and pest control are getting addressed right away. We hope to see you again!
Christine S. Apr 2021
great location, family had a blast! Would stay here again.
Lina D. Feb 2021
We spent 3 nights during ski break. The reason is not a 5 star review is because there were things here and there that were not working properly. The house itslef is very nice with lots of space for a family of 9. Very nice large pantry to put away all.our groceries and snacks for the week, large table for all of us to eat together and a game room for the kids to play. Plenty of pillows, blankets and towels. Strong wifi.
We had to rewire the main TV in the living room because it did not work. The other two did not work and we did not bother fixing it. My son was able to play xbox during down time in the basemant TV after rewiring things. The only bedroom with good temperature was upstairs in the second floor. The queen room bedroom in the first floor was very hot and the basemant was very cold...both not confortable to sleep. We had to either sleep with light clothes and open the sliding door in the first floor or use all the blankets and use winter clothes to sleep in the basemant. We were looking foward to use the grill and firepit... both use gas and the tank was empty. So, want to use those amenities, bring your own (not convenient). There were lamps without bulbs, so we could not use the ones in some of the night stands next to the beds.

Overall, we had a good stay, enyoyed the area. It was a reasonable drive to Dodge Ridge, pinecrest lake and Yosemite. We dealt with the tempeture inside the house the best we could and focused in all the positive the property had to offer. I suggest to have space heaters for the basemant and the gameroom in the garage.
Manager response:
Hi, Lina, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are sorry to hear that there were concerns with the home's temperature. We will ensure that the local staff is aware so that they can assess the situation. We apologize that the grill was out of propane. Our guest service agents are available 24 hours a day and if any issues arise we encourage guests to let us know so that we can assist. We would have been happy to bring an additional tank of propane. We hope to have the opportunity to host you in the future.

Nice clean place
Koushik R. Oct 2020
This house is a good place for renting and have a lot of indoor game to play.
This place has a parking fee of $30 per car. It was not clearly written at the time of booking the place. This is a hidden cost and Vacasa should have written in there.
We rented this place to spend on the pine mountain lake. Parking to the lake parking lot is not allowed for tourists over the weekend. Though you may get street parking. The parking rule for the lake was not clear on the website.
Nancy H. Aug 2020
It smelled old
Manager response:
Hi, Nancy! Thank you for sharing your feedback. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement regarding some specific issues with the home. We will pass your feedback to our housekeeping team for future consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Our family spend a week in Pine Mountain Lake area,during that time, we stayed in three different cabins. This house (cabin) is the best one, clean, spacious, comfortable, and owners provide all necessary staff, including paper towel, bathroom tissue, shampoo, conditioner and more. We really enjoy.

Verry relaxing
Troy K. Jan 2020
The home was in perfect location for our family of 6 to enjoy New Years and Yosemite Valley. The home is large, clean and full of necessities mentioned. The parking does present a challenge for inexperienced drivers and several large vehicles, but I was able to park our large SUV right in front of the garage. I’d say a large SUV and one sedan fit fine if you park one vehicle on side of garage. 3 vehicles would be a challenge, but is possible. We will be returning in the Summer so we can enjoy the lake and golf course.
Elisa B. Aug 2019
The house was filled with lots of fun things for our kids and family to enjoy. The lake, golf course, town of Groveland, and close proximity to Yosemite make for a wonderful family getaway.
jacqueline s. Jul 2019
A lovely bright, clean, huge house. Wished we could have stayed longer than 5 days. Lots to do at the lake.
Deon M. Nov 2018
I loved how clean and orderly the house was. I also loved the activities (xbox, board games, and the games in the garage) that the house provided. I love how quiet and private the house felt.
Joelle H. Jul 2018
We were only there a couple of days but the house was amazing! Spotless, smart and comfortable. Felt just like home! Has good kitchen and bathroom facilities as well as a games room with table tennis, basketball net and a few other games and board games and even various consoles! About a 5 min drive to the stunning lake and 1h20min to Yosemite valley floor! There's a couple of restaurants and a supermarket also 5 mins drive away so was perfect for our family! Would highly recommend!
Elizabeth M. Jun 2018
My family and I had a great time at this perfectly located cabin. We enjoyed the wildlife right outside the house and easy drive to Yosemite. We were supplied essentials like dishwashing soap, sponge, dishwasher detergent, etc. loved it!!
Ana M. Jun 2018
The house is very spacious, it’s not easy to find a 4 bedroom house in the area. The driveway is extremely steep, I wouldn’t park there during icy conditions. And it doesn’t really fit 3 cars. The kitchen and leaving room were nice, but the garage was crowded with things. It was nice to have a pool table, but there was so much around it that it’s hard to use it (for example an old and unused exercise machine). And the bed on the main floor is very hard, which I found very uncomfortable.
Manager response:
We appreciate receiving this feedback to work with. There is not street parking at this home; however, there is room on the side of the unit near the garbage kiosk for an additional car so there is room for three. Many homes in the region have steep driveways and are treated/salted during winter months when possible. We do advise 4WD for this purpose. The mattress on the main floor is relatively new, so we are very sorry to see it did not suit this guest's preference. Maintenance is actively working on consolidating the exercise equipment to a new area. Thank you!
Kari L. May 2018
Nice location. The drive way is very steep. Couple of issues when we got there, but property management got it resolved fairly quickly. Can not park at the marina but guest can park on the street and walk.
DeAnne H. Oct 2017
Home was lovely. We had 7 of us there and there was not enough toilet paper for our 5 day stay. The driveway was incredibly steep— I would hate to try it in rainy or frosty conditions. Price was great.
Arvind P. Sep 2017
Beautiful place to spend vacation days
Beatrice S. Sep 2017
We truly enjoyed our stay. This cabin is equipped with everything for the family. I would recommend it to anyone!!
Katherine B. Aug 2017
We were four adult couples renting this house and the place really isn't set up for all adults. I do think the description of the property is misleading. There aren't actually four bedrooms, the fourth bedroom is really an open space with no door so there is absolutely no privacy--and that space has bunk beds! Also to get to the third bedroom in the basement you have to walk through the bunk bed area. We were willing to deal with single beds for such a reasonably-priced place but we weren't expecting this arrangement. Would be better for families with kids. Otherwise the place was fine, a broken chair on the deck and a broken chair in the living room but it was clean and the lake was nearby and nice. It is also over 1.5 hours to Yosemite valley within the park.
Tanya G. Jul 2017
Great location! Nice, clean and guests friendly environment. Great game room that we enjoyed!
R. May 2017
This house is pretty private with all the tall trees around with the nearest neighbor maybe 100 yards away. It has a great gas grill on the deck for BBQ's. The game room kept us busy for a while. Yosemite was amazing!!!
Antonio F. May 2017
The house was awesome. My sister fell in love with it. everything is in tip top shape and would recommend to any family of 8 or less. only one caution, look out for that drive way with a steep grade. a little challenging if you are driving a large SUV or VAN.
Stan E. Apr 2017
The house was all we hoped for; comfortable, efficient and homey. The parking will get interesting in bad weather but for us it was great. Be aware there are steep entrance/exit but with care all should go smoothly.
Plan your trip, check the road conditions and have a great time.
Amber T. Apr 2017
This house is great, everything that you could possibly need. A very spacious home with a great set up, allowing you to have a very relaxing stay. We have rented several homes within this resort community and this home has been our favorite by far!
Lysseth M. Mar 2017
I stayed for my birthday with my family, this was a remote cabin, i loved the fire pit the house size, the wifi was pretty slow but it helped us enjoy family time and the outdoors more and disconnect from the world for a couple days. The lake stores were closed so we're routes to yosemite but the town was charming, overall so much to do in the house and it's close to town would definitely stay here again it was amazing!
Connie F. Oct 2016
We had a great time staying in this vacation home. There was plenty of room for two families. It was nice having a whole downstairs for the kids. The house was clean bright and beautiful inside And out. We will definitely be coming back!
Sopheap I. Sep 2016
Great experience
Laura R. Sep 2016
We had a great time. With 5 teenagers the game room was great. Plenty of room for all of us. Had 8 total.
Visited rainbow pools only 15 min away and had a great day. Next day did Yosemite all day.
Some down falls.
1. Outside fire pit not so good. But prob because of forest fires.
2. Do not like having to make beds once I get there. Sheets.
3. No extra garbage bags
But I would go again. Loved the house.,
Coleen M. Aug 2016
Lovely, spacious property with access for children to lake beach, fishing. Yosemite within day excursion.
Summer so hot,difficult to cool home in 98 degree weather. No cell service so have to go into town to find 'hot spot'. No viable access to local property management in case of emergencies.
Ken B. Aug 2016
Amongst the best rental ever. This place was fabulous. Games, views, rooms, bedrooms, BBQs, utensils - all very clean - it was perfect. All so very close to Yosemite. We hope to be back very soon.
Darla G. Jul 2016
My husband noted the attention to detail as though every amenity available at the house is all we could possibly desire. We loved the availability of books to read, games to play, DVD’s to watch, all of the game tables downstairs and even flashlights and s’mores roasters for the fun fire pit in the back. We loved our stay. The property is only 4 minutes from the lake and 20 minutes from Rainbow Pools which looks like a mermaid lagoon. The more daring members of our family enjoyed jumping into the pool from the cliffs above the waterfall.
Felix K. Jul 2016
I was lucky to rent this house for the second year in a row. It's a great value: the kids had the best time as well as adults. Will recommend it in a heartbeat.
Joe N. Jun 2016
Great property and amenities especially if you plan on traveling with kids. There are a lot of games to keep them entertained while at home and the lake that is about 5 minutes of a drive away is very charming. Depending on what time you leave the cabin, Yosemite is about 45 minutes - 1 hour of a drive away
Stacy R. Jun 2016
This is a beautiful home and has been updated nicely. Kids enjoyed the game room and horseshoes. It is spread over 3 levels which would be great for bigger families, however may be tough if your wanting to keep your kids on the same floor. Home had everything we needed.
