Pine Mountain Club cabin description

Enjoy an easy inexpensive weekend getaway in this rustic mountain cabin just an hour and a half from LA, halfway between the I-5 at the Grapevine and Santa Maria on the coast. Located on a cul-de-sac in Pine Mountain Club, a private community in the Los Padres National Forest. 35 minutes from Pyramid Lake and 45 minutes from Magic Mountain.

Available for rent any time. $135/night, 2 night minimum, 3 night minimum on holiday weekends. 3rd night free with rentals Monday through Thursday, except during holiday weeks. Prices may be slightly higher over the holidays.

My cabin is located on two lots, total 2/3 acre, so there's lots of open space outside. All knotty pine interior with lodge-like furnishings. Two large bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with full bed and a twin bed); 2 extra twin mattresses in walk-in closet for kids; portable crib and high chair; one bathroom; big stone fireplace; large deck overlooking wooded area with small creek. Large well-equipped kitchen. Beautiful stained glass window in living room with scene of local hills. Three TVs; DVD, VCR and laser disc players with over 200 movies, plus books, board games and puzzles. Dual-pane windows for comfort summer and winter. High speed wifi internet connection.

Rental includes access to beautiful mountain golf course; swimming pool in summer months; stable with trail rides; catch-and-release fishing in Fern Lake; tennis courts; clubhouse with video game room, restaurant, free wifi and lounge with live music on weekends. Village business area has restaurants, market, hardware store, gift shops, internet cafe plus seasonal festivals and fairs. Hiking, sledding and cross country skiing on Mount Pinos (8800') 25 minutes away. And just across the street from the cabin is a lovely wooded area with pathways leading to the village and rustic tables under the trees - an easy woodsy walk without getting in the car, especially nice for little kids.

In the winter I provide sleds, and you are welcome to use the extra boots and gloves for adults and kids that I keep at the cabin.

This is a HOUSEKEEPING CABIN - the rates are low because guests must provide their own sheets, towels and firewood and must clean the cabin in readiness for the next guests before leaving. Cleaning supplies are provided; cleaning service and/or linens can be provided at an additional cost. There is no smoking in the cabin. Refundable $200 cleaning/security deposit required to hold reservation; deposit will be returned in full once the cabin has been checked and found clean and undamaged. Payment can be made via cashier's check, personal check (if in time to clear before rental date) or Paypal. If paying by Paypal (using your credit card or bank link) add 3% to cover Paypal fee.

Roads are very well maintained by Pine Mountain Club but weather can change quickly in the mountains so be prepared with 4-wheel drive or chains in winter. There is now Verizon cell phone service in PMC. The cabin phone is blocked for outgoing long distance, so I provide a phone card to make long distance calls if you need it (best to bring your own card, too, just in case).

                            for letting us stay in your lovely cabin. We needed somewhere to go while our house was tented for termites and it turned into a lovely getaway. The dogs loved it, too! We will be back.

                            ...and our new years resolution is it won't be that long again. We decided we needed to stay longer than 3 days! We were just getting into the groove of no internet or phone (owner's note - there IS wifi at the cabin, but no cell phone service yet - coming soon!). Thank you for having this little peace of heaven to share. Happy Holidays! See you sooner!

                            Our anniversary weekend was amazing. We woke up to snow Saturday morning which was breathtaking! We took the meadow path trail to town, which was beautiful in the snow. Took some great pictures, doing some geocaching along the way and wine tasting. Your cabin felt just like home - can't wait to return!

                            The perfect getaway cabin in the woods. Warm and cozy with all the wood and beautiful decorations. Loved our stay. Can't wait to come back.

                            ...trip to your beautiful cabin! We came up for your neighbors' wedding and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful trip. Your cabin is just lovely! We especially enjoyed the deck and the board games. We could feel the hospitality even without you here. I can't wait for our next visit - thanks for everything!

                            This was a great getaway for me and my dogs! The cabin was clean and cozy and such a great value. I loved watching the birds and squirrels at the feeders on the deck. So peaceful. The coolest thing was the wonderful trails across from the cabin that were built by one of the residents. The dogs and I loved walking along them every morning. I was so relaxed and rejuvenated after that weekend!

                            We always relax, but especially did this time. Today is a beautiful day after it snowed last night, and we don't want to leave, as usual! Thank you again for sharing your homey cabin with us. Our family loves it here! P.S. We hope to be back ASAP!!!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1985

                          About the owner: I retired from Disney Studios in 2007. Now I work part-time as a paralegal and I like to travel - I do home exchanges all over the world. I grew up in upstate NY so I love coming to the mountains for the change of seasons and the snow.

                          Why the Owner Chose Pine Mountain Club:
                          My ex-husband and I bought this cabin in 1985. We wanted a retreat where he could golf and I could x-country ski and we could enjoy nature with our family. We had thought of looking in Big Bear, east of LA, but a friend told us about Pine Mountain Club which is so much closer and quieter. It's never crowded, even on holidays, and has a real small town feel, plus it's only 90 minutes from my home in Pasadena.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          When I'm in my cabin I feel like I'm in another world. It's absolutely quiet on the cul-de-sac. You can't see other cabins from the back deck which looks out onto green space with birds, squirrels and the occasional deer. The interior is all knotty pine, even the ceilings, and there's a big stone fireplace. Starting right across from the cabin a neighbor has built a series of rock-lined paths through the woods, with little tables and seats made from tree stumps; it's just a 10 minute walk to the village through the 'enchanted forest.' I love to hike and x-country ski on Mt. Pinos, and enjoy the live music, free wifi, swimming and tennis at the clubhouse. For home entertainment, I have accumulated a library of over 200 movies on dvd, laser disc and tape. I enjoy sharing my cabin with guests and I use it myself as often as I can; a weekend at the cabin feels like a real vacation.
