About the property

Classy, chic and comfy three bedroom, two bath house with 360 views on an acre.

With one acre at the peak of PML, views all around and no immediate neighbors, this house is a wonderful place to bring your family, friends and puppies. Completely remodeled in 2017, the house has all new flooring, paint, kitchen appliances, mattresses, furniture, windows, blinds and a hot-tub.

Sit outside on the 1000 sq ft deck and watch the sunset. Enjoy the deer and humming birds while soaking in the hot-tub. You will be in a private, gated community 23 miles from Yosemite National Park and minutes from our Golf Course, Private Lake Beaches, Hiking Trails, Pool and more.

There are three bedrooms and two baths (one on each level)- two guest rooms downstairs and a huge master upstairs. All bedrooms and the open concept living area have cable and brand new 55 inch + Smart TVs so that you can watch your programs on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.

The house is equipped with high-speed Free WiFi and because it is on the very top of the area at 3200 feet, most Verizon phones will have full bars/reception.

The house has three thru-wall A/C units that can chill the house on even the hottest days with an enormous vaulted ceiling fan, as well as base board heaters, nice wood remote heaters for the bedrooms and of course a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of wood.

All beds have new memory foam mattresses, new high quality linens and pillows. There are plenty of thick new towels as well as four white cotton bath robes.

There is also laundry, a stainless steel grill, closet full of necessities such as over the counter standards like aspirin and toiletries such as tampons, Q-Tips, etc.

****Things to know:

The front gate may charge $30 per car for vacation renters for up to a week long stay.

You will have lake and beach access, but can't put your own boat on the lake (only homeowners). However, there are many beautiful Northern California lakes very close by for boating.

Come stay at the Manzanita House- we are sure you will enjoy it!

*If this house is already booked during your preferred dates, or if you need a larger home please see our sister property. Egret's Landing is also PML and can be seen here:

About Ron Schley

We are Ronnie and Marlo :). We love to get away and enjoy different areas like you. We too are big time vacation home renters.

We're into boating, hiking, camping, fishing and hanging with our doggies- Falcon (a big bull terrier mix), and Dexter (a 5 lbs chihuahua that is the boss of the family).

Marlo is an IT recruiter and Ronnie is in software sales. We both live in the Sacramento area.

This home is one of two vacation rental homes we own. The other one is in South Lake Tahoe.

Either of us is very accessible and eager to help if you need anything during your stay. We want you to enjoy your vacation, and have our house be your favorite in the area... so please don't hesitate to call us if you have a question.

Ron Schley purchased this house in 2017

Why Ron Schley chose Groveland

We fell in love with Groveland and Pine Mountain Lake after driving through on our way to Yosemite. The Iron Door Saloon, the Golf Course, temperate weather, the small town and many lakes around the area make it a great place to get away any time of year, with a reasonable drive from the Bay or Sacramento.

What makes this house unique

We named this house the Manzanita House because there are tons of beautiful, mature Manzanita trees on the property. When we were refurbishing the home, we wanted to be a little different and give the place a modern but classy-chic look.

You won't find old stuffy furniture here, or a 90's design theme with the same old Yosemite prints on the wall. Instead, you will find a fresh, newly decorated house with original art from local painters and photographers. We hope you enjoy the clean look!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ron,

Beautiful home, great location, PET FRIENDLY!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this house for my birthday. It was a great central location for our day trips. Wine tasting in Murphy's, Yosemite, beautiful golf course at Pine Mountain lake, boating at one of our favorite lakes. The house is private, cozy and well furnished including washer/dryer, hot tub and bbq. The meat market in Groveland has great deli sandwiches and good quality meats and wild seafood we bought to grill at the house. Fork & Love Restaurant at the Hotel Charlotte in town was great as was the restaurant at the golf course. We will definitely stay her again.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! We had two couples staying and we had plenty of space. The house was stocked with everything you can think of. We were blown away by how much was already there for our use. It was clean and well put together. The beds were AMAZING. After hiking all day in Yosemite, it was nice to come back to comfy beds. The hot tub was very relaxing and it's very secluded, so no need to worry about neighbors or passersby seeing you. One of our guests needed to work while there, and the wifi worked great for her.

We left our pup at home, but if you wanted to bring yours, they already have food and water bowls set out for them inside and outside. It rained almost the entire time we were there, but the patio was fantastic. I wish we'd gotten to use it.

Communication on how to get in and directions to the house was very clear. The process was incredibly easy. The only issue we had was getting through the gate with two cars. We were originally only supposed to have one, but ended up having two at the very last minute. Because we only had the owner register one at the gate, they made us park the other car outside the neighborhood and only allowed us to drive in with one car. So, if you have more than one car, let them know before you get there!!

The house was perfect for our needs and I would highly recommend it. I would definitely stay here again.

Wow! This place was totally perfect for my friends and I to spend the weekend. We were extremely comfortable and it was a great time. It snowed so everything was beautiful and we kept warm by the fire. We’ll definitely be coming back. Thank you!!
