                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: Hi! I purchased my cabin in 1997 and named it in honor of my Dad. I was born in Chicago, grew up in New Jersey and came to CA on a corporate promotion/transfer to Palo Alto in 1982. I was at a new com'er party and told a guy that I wanted to buy a cabin someday in CA and he said, 'look everywhere but buy in Pinecrest'. He was right! I purchased the cabin as a place my family could come and visit. Carol is in Pensacola and Tom is in Orlando. My dear sister, Joan, left us in June, 2003. All have been to the cabin at one time or another plus my three sons and many nieces and nephews. I retired early as a Human Resources Executive in 2000 and am now very involved in volunteering for organizations focused on social justice. It is quite rewarding. I wish you well in your search for a nice cabin and can only offer the same advice ... look everywhere ... become a guest at Joseph's cabin! Joe Schmidt

                      Why the Owner Chose Pinecrest:
                      The Pinecrest Area came highly recommended to me shortly after I arrived in CA. I found a beautiful lake in the summer, a great winter sports area in the Winter and three wilderness areas to explore.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Whether it's summer or winter, I love to jump into the hot tub after a day of exercise. It's so relaxing. Joseph's cabin has so many different amenities to provide relaxation and interest. I also love sitting out on the deck with the quiet and forest embracing you all around.
