Property description

Located in the 'Estate' section of Pine Mountain Club, this special 'true log' home we call 'Log Haven,' is perfect for a romantic get-a-way or creative renewal retreat. It has been a wonderful get-away for writers who need inspiration in their work. This two story log cabin has three comfortable bedrooms with two full baths. Log Haven is tucked away in tall pines within walking distance to the village and clubhouse. Once you park your car you never have to drive anywhere during your stay.

Relax on the front porch and gaze at the breathtaking views of the mountains. The back porch has spectacular views of the lower lake, golf course and greenbelt which is a wildlife sanctuary. In the evenings, snuggle on the couch in front of the fireplace and hear music on a Bose surround sound stereo where you can plug in your iPod or smart phone and stream Pandora or play your music play list. Cook gourmet meals in a fully stocked kitchen. Take hikes to spiritually inspiring places we have listed in our caringly put together information book. Take a break from your computer, TV and cell phones. Take the time to listen to your inner knowing. Let the mountains heal you. Take a deep breath, gaze at the stars and feel rejuvenated!!


What our Guests say:

'We did feel peaceful there. How can you not see God's beautiful creation in a surrounding like that! It is good to get away from the city and be refreshed. Thank you. We were truly blessed.
J Meadows

'What a beautiful place! I spent three days relaxing in all the beauty. I communed with the wild life and has a fantastic time. Mark spent his birthday days fishing. Nothing could have made him happier (except the time we got to spend together in peace and beauty!)'
Thank you both!
Eilene & Mark

'Your sweetness shines throughout this home. Your thoughtfulness reflects in all the comforts you left for your guest and your brilliance and fun loving souls in all the cute things around. Our favorite surprise was the box by the lazy chair with the three mice popping out! By the way, the house feels very healthy. Most cabins have a musty feel, nothing that sort in Log Haven!'
Thanks, it was a great stay!
Peter, Parvin & Matthew (8 yrs. old)

'We loved your shady cool and comfortable home. Would not have changed a thing. Our big city souls were replenished and we soaked up the warmth and strong positive energy as we took in the news of our first child on it's way. Thank you for making this all happen on such short notice. We will be back!'
Drew & Meghan

'Our family was invited to stay at your cabin and it was truly a wonderful experience. The thing we loved most was how quiet it was...no phones, neighbors or traffic... Wow! just a peaceful time with all our loved ones.
Your cabin was just as we imagined a cabin would look like and it gave us all a warm hospitable feeling.
We appreciate you sharing your comfort and joy. It was a great way to start the new year! Thank you.'
Kaye, Donna & Devynne

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am a portrait photographer with a home studio in Los Angeles. My husband works with me and is also a jazz singer in a legendary big band group, The Modernaires. A few times a year he plays and sings at the Pine Mountain Clubhouse. I have facilitated women's retreats and photographic workshops in our log home for 14 years. Pine Mountain is a perfect retreat spot for those who want to get away and recreate and refresh their creativity. I love to hike and Joe loves golf. Of course, I call golf 'a good hike gone bad.' He loves it and I am happy for that.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Mountain Club:
After creating my first photography book, I was pretty burned out. It took five years in the making. So we went to visit friends in Pine Mountain. After the third visit they said, 'So when are you buying a place here?' We looked at each other and thought, 'Why not?' That was almost 18 years ago. We spend as many weekends as we can in Pine Mountain in our beloved Log Haven. This home is so special to us. When I first walked in the door I vowed that it would be a healing retreat for all who entered. Indeed, it is!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Log Haven is our home. We have put love, creativity and joy into this cabin. Because it is made from logs, it feels like a living breathing being. I always feel like it wraps it's arms around me when I am there. In the summer, I sit on my front porch and sip my tea in the morning and gaze at the meadow in front of us and the beauty of the mountains. It's like a wild kingdom in front of our cabin as we see rabbits scampering, squirrels chasing each other up and down the trees and quail herds racing by with their little ones tagging behind. And we do have bears! A couple of months ago I look out my living room window to see a teenage bear on it's hind legs sniffing our BBQ! They are very submissive, so I just yelled at him and stomped my feet for him to go away. So remember, don't leave any food outside or anything that would smell in your car! We have a beautiful hawk that frequents our area and a scrub jay we call Scruffy that lands on our knee and takes peanuts from us. Yes, there is such peace and relaxation. It holds me all week until I return. At night we bring our Apple TV and stream Netflix or Hulu (of course it's the mountains and sometimes you get buffering) or watch a DVD or video out of our library. Having surround sound makes it like we are in a movie theater. In the winter, we have a roaring fire going. We have fire wood provided for all our visitors. I have to admit, I love my recliner in the corner of the living room that was my Mother's. I have a reading lamp above it and have the luxury to read in peace for hours while Joe plays the piano. Since we are only a block and a half from the village and the clubhouse and golf course, we never have to drive. We can walk to the village or clubhouse for breakfast. Our favorite splurge is walking up to the bakery owned by John and Sy. They make the best pastries and Latte's. Can ya tell I love it here?
