Comfortable Home with Big Deck, Gas Grill, Shared Pool & Tennis

This newly remodeled home has a big deck and is near community amenities such as a shared swimming pool and tennis courts! Next time you take a trip to Yosemite, this is the perfect home base.

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, this home is three miles north of Groveland's shops and eateries. The Pine Mountain Marina, with its many entertainment options, is about four miles southeast. It's just a short drive of 27 miles to Yosemite National Park for some of the world's best hiking and most gorgeous scenery. Black Oak Casino is 28 miles north, and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is just 55 miles north.

On quiet evenings, curl up on the couch with a crackling fire to warm the room and watch a show on cable. And stay plugged in with folks at home, if you like, with the free WiFi access.

A pleasant kitchen with wooden cabinets is fully equipped for your cooking needs. Perk up in the mornings with freshly brewed coffee, then make a hearty breakfast to fortify you for the day's activities. When you're done preparing the meal, pop the dirty dishes into the dishwasher and enjoy the fruits of your labor at the dining table inside or outside on the deck.

Food always seems to taste better out in the fresh air, surrounded by swaying trees and singing birds. On sunny afternoons, catch some fish at the Marina and grill them on the gas barbecue for flaky perfection.

Six guests will enjoy this cozy home. There are two bedrooms, one with a luxurious queen bed and one with two twins. There's also a sofabed in the living room for a few more members of your party. A family or a group of friends on a hiking retreat will be very comfortable here.

There's plenty to do for outdoor adventurers in Groveland. Rent a horse from the community equestrian center and see the area from a new perspective, or traverse the area on hiking trails. You can work on your swing, whether on the golf green or community tennis courts, and the Pine Mountain Lake Marina is a great place to get out on the water. Go swimming or rent a nonmotorized boat or kayak from the marina, then take a break for a meal at the Lakeside Café.

A place of rare beauty, Yosemite National Park has brought inspiration to many artists. Bring along a camera or your sketchpad to capture the memory of your trip to this lovely place. Hike to Glacier Point for a great view, or take the longer trek to Sentinel Dome. If you're here in the winter, make sure to bring along your gear for skiing and snowboarding!

It's time to escape the city and the daily grind. Book this home today!

Great location! The home could use some TLC—updating, deep cleaning, etc.
holly t. Jul 2021
The environment and scenery was the best!!
Isaiah B. Jun 2021
The good:
It’s a nice location in relation to Yosemite. It has enough good restaurants within 5-15 minutes. The air conditioning worked great.
The bad:
There was an obvious pile of crumbs on the counter of the kitchen and some more bits of crumbs that had not been vacuumed up in the bedroom. The shower was dirty. The bed creaks and squeaks at the smallest movement. And as stated in previous reviews, there’s an ant problem.
Manager response:
Hello Isaiah,We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our team of housekeepers takes pride in their cleanliness standards, as it is a top priority service we provide for every guest prior to check-in. We are disappointed to see that this concern was not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to assist. We have passed your feedback along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
Maria G. Jun 2021
Spider webs inside bathroom. Smell when we arrived was horrible. Broken curtains and grill was so dirty. $40 cash only just to get inside gate.
Manager response:
Hello Maria, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

We lived it so much! Clean house in a quite place with deers walking around. Close to the lake and one hour drive to Yosemite
Jeremy P. Aug 2020
Great little cabin for a family trip. Very comfortable and inviting. The beds were decent and the kitchen had plenty of the usual items for cooking.
Cynthia H. Jul 2020
Cute little home perfect for day trips to Yosemite. Great deck for watching stars and nice location with deer and friendly neighbors. Only issues that keep this from being a property I would return to or recommend: the dishes were actually still dirty and had to run a load through before we could use them. Otherwise it was clean and tidy. There is also a pretty bad ant problem in the bathroom and Kitchen. You have to put your toothbrushes in ziplocks to keep them from swarming and no food can be stored in cupboards. I used our ice chest for dry food storage. The basic television channels would get stuck and then the signal would go out so no watching tv either. But the number one fix-I would recommend replacing the master bedroom mattress. It is so uncomfortable that we wanted to go home and my husband and I fought over who got to sleep on the sofa. Nothing is worse than a sagging old mattress that you can feel every coil, squeak and creak if your partner moves, and keeps you from getting a decent nights sleep. Even a mattress topper would help. I rented a house to avoid camping and sleeping on the ground but the ground is more comfortable. Fix those things and I think you would have better reviews and repeat guests.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Cynthia. We are sorry to hear some aspects of the condo did not meet your expectations. We will ensure that all areas of concern are addressed appropriately in an effort to provide a more pleasant stay for our guests. We appreciate your feedback and hope to provide you with a more comfortable experience next visit!

This home was very cozy in the evenings. We really enjoyed the fireplace and board games that were in the house! The parking fee was a bit expensive ($33 per car) so we had to adjust our plans and carpool in and out of the neighborhood to keep costs down.
Akshat S. Sep 2019
We were 7 people and stayed here for 2 days. The house is huge and a full fledged kitchen with all amenities. Enough beds and recliners for all. Towels were provided. The place was clean and in a beautiful location in the midst of nature. An hour drive from the most of the popular Yosemite attractions.
The only downside was there was only 1 bathroom for 6 people but that is manageable if you plan wisely. Overall, a wonderful stay and would choose again!!
The place of the house into the forest And near the lake
Miguel Angel G. Aug 2019
Todo perfecto en cuanto a la decoracion, la limpieza, los electrodomésticos, las instalaciones. Lo peor que se necesita un buen rato desde la entrada para llegar a la casa y que se cobra una cantidad adicional de 31$ por el recinto de la comunidad tanto si te quedas un día como un mes.
Katja R. Jul 2019
Das Haus war schön groß, es war schön ruhig. Wir habe die Terrasse und den See in fünf Minuten Autoentfernung genossen. Schön war auch, das es eine Waschmaschine und einen Trockner gab.
deborah B. May 2019
clean house
thierry G. May 2019
Le calme et les animaux libres dans le parc.
Anna F. Jan 2019
We had the house for to be close to Yosemite. It was perfect for the group! Thank you, owners, a lot!
Alex A. Dec 2018
Awsm place to stay...Home provides everything required for a short stay.
Caroline S. Nov 2018
Cabin was great for a weekend getaway. Nice and cosy, great gas fire and close proximity to Yosemite. Would stay again!
Susan C. Nov 2018
Delightful seeing wild turkeys and deer each morning. Clean, quiet, all the comforts of home in a magical setting.
Veronika M. Oct 2018
Deer showed up in the morning just in front of the door! What a wonderful start to visit Yosemite Park!

Susan M. Sep 2018
The house was well set up and easy to "use". The BBQ was out of propane, so I called Vacasa and within the hour a new propane tank was delivered and set up!
Brian V. Aug 2018
Loved the cabin had most thing that you would need including a washer and dryer ironing board but no iron ?
Could do with more info being available on the general area , access points to the lake and beach maybe some info on local hikes etc
Not sure what the issue is with Lone Pine Mountain Resort but all guests have to use specific roads which almost doubles the time to reach the cabin when owners can whizz through barriers appreciate its not vacasa's fault
Carsten B. Jul 2018
Great stay in the nature and close to Yosemite! Spacious and lovely flat in the forest - enjoyed our stay with a family of 4...
Dennis L. Jul 2018
House is suitable. Bed is of poor quality and uncomfortable but all other inside furnishings are fine. The gas grill did not have propane so we were unable to grill. There is a table and four chairs on the deck but two chairs are missing the cushions and the other two had cushions that were ripped and torn.
We had to call the management company for trash bags as well as dish washer detergent. There was only one trash bag for a weeks stay and nothing for recyclables. They did promptly bring the items. We brought our recyclables to the recycling center in town ourselves.
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest bringing these items to our attention. We have followed-up with housekeeping on keeping the home properly stocked, and the patio chair cushions have been replaced. Thank you!
Jun Ichi T. Jun 2018
Exactly what I was looking for. Quite hard to find, especially in the darkness of the night, even with a map, but what a nice cosy place to stay ! Will definitely come back.
Gloria S. May 2018
Very serene, clean, well stocked and comfortable. We loved our stay in this cute cabin. For the price it was more than I expected. Well maintained.
Antonio B. Feb 2018
Unfortunately is somehow too far from the Yosemite Park to go there every day
Ole S. Feb 2018
Nice place to stay if you visit Yosemite
Pushpinder R. Jan 2018
Very nice and cozy home with all amenities.
Marco R. Nov 2017
We enjoyed a quite 3 days at this location. Nothing like being able to relax in a clean environment with family.
Lachmmie A. Nov 2017
Submit parking permits early and call to make sure there’s enough beddings for everyone! Other than that, it’s your home away from home!Be ready for no phone bars!
Karin F. Oct 2017
Very nice, classic and comfy home 30 min from Yosemite.
Amy W. Oct 2017
Great small home at a very reasonable price. The house was clean and a great base to explore the area. The location is within 70min of Yosemite, 50min of Columbia State Historic Park, and 90min of Calaveras Big Tree's State Park.
David S. Sep 2017
This place was great, like a home away from home. It was a pleasant change from cramped hotel rooms. It was nice to have room to relax after a day of hiking. The beds were very comfortable. And everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. The towels and linens were top notch. Overall a very enjoyable stay and I highly recommend it.
Leslie H. Aug 2017
We were on a long family vacation and it was very nice to stay here and have some space for the family. Pool area was wonderful!!!
Silvina F. Aug 2017
1 hour away but the place is very beautiful to rest. No noise except one dog from a near house. the rest was heaven. the cottage in oldish but has character. We loved the deer. It is comfortable place to stay.
Patricia W. Aug 2017
This house was awesome from beginning to end the house was clean and so cozy. The community was friendly and it offered a private lake that was 5 min away from our house. We were able to swim there with our 3 and 5 year old kids we rented a dual kayak and went out to relax in the beautiful clean lake. This was an amazing experience. It's also close to Yosemite national park so the location couldn't of been better.
Susan Z. Aug 2017
Hiker's Home was a convenient and comfortable no frills home base for our family of four - we took several day trips to Yosemite and went horseback riding. The near-by Mar-Val market had pretty much everything we needed to cook meals at home, and also provided made-to-order sandwiches for our daytime excursions. The Pine Mountain Lake community offers something for everyone - swimming, hiking, tennis, fishing, golf.
Brenda B. Jul 2017
Not much selection in the area interms of restaurants best to eat in we used the grill two nights in a row saw deer in the area every day and wild turkeys. House is comfortable and decorated nicely. We used the pool one day and there were several playgrounds for my grandson.Yosemite an hour and a half away, well worth the trip.also went to calaveras big trees. A nice central location
Steven S. Jul 2017
The house is nicely decorated and was very clean. It is in a quiet area of the development and had a nice deck for relaxing on. We saw deer in the back yard every evening while sitting on the deck. It was quite warm the week we were there, low 90's and the air conditioner was not working. If that was repaired we would not hesitate to stay there again.
Patricia F. Jun 2017
Nice community with fun amenities. The house was basic with no frills. The twin beds were very uncomfortable.
Shweta J. May 2017
This place was 36 min away from the Yosemite entrance. However it took 1 hr 15 min to reach at the nearest parking spot. We went on memorial day long weekend, so it is with traffic during peak times.
Alice X. May 2017
Its a wonderful cute rustic cabin, neighbor were awesome and we didnt have any problem staying. If your planning on goimg to yosemite, its about a curvy 2.5 hrs drive.
Don V. Aug 2016
You'll love the solitude along with the accommodations.
Rob A. Jul 2016
The spotless house and overall experience was marred by missing details. Not being able to enjoy the spacious deck in the evening or to use the advertised gas grill (due to insufficient working light bulbs and no gas tank) was a large disappointment. We couldn't even dial the support number because the landline didn't work and there was little cell signal. We had to scramble to find another way to prepare our planned BBQ. House would have been perfect if everything worked as advertised.
Manager response:
We apologize that the BBQ didn't turn out as planned; the Property Manager has replaced the light bulbs and made sure the propane tank is filled.
Celita W. Jul 2016
We had an amazing stay at Hikers Place. It was clean and was perfect for what we needed to stay. The town has a cute rustic charm and everyone was extremely polite.
