Our remodel is underway! New flooring, a complete kitchen makeover etc. We think you will love it!

Are you planning to visit Yosemite National Park? Our vacation home is conveniently located about 27 easy driving miles from Yosemite's west gate along Highway 120. You can be in Yosemite in approximately 30 minutes if you stay here. Or perhaps you are one of the many families who have fallen in love with Pine Mountain Lake, the lake, the pool, the beaches, golf, tennis and horseback riding? Each year we host many families who find it all here and never even bother with going to Yosemite!

Please check our availability calendar for open dates that fit your schedule. Would you be interested in renting our home for 31 days or more during the off-season? We have had several families stay for a month or more while searching for their own PML dream vacation home! By doing so, we won't have to charge you Tuolumne County temporary lodging/hotel tax. The best months to do this are October, November, January, and February. December and March are available at a slightly higher cost. But hurry and check our calendar soon because once we accept shorter term reservations for a particular month, it will be unavailable.

Our vacation home has adequate space at 1,714 sq ft and is equipped with all the necessary amenities. Plus we have both a custom billiard table and an upscale ping pong table.

Two day minimum required for most rentals. Occasionally we may make an exception.

We are located in Groveland at the Pine Mountain Lake gated resort community. This is not a cabin or old A-frame. This is a modern two bedroom, two bathroom home built in 1988 with central air-conditioning and heat.

Large bonus game room can double as a THIRD bedroom. Modern appliances include a washer, dryer, dishwasher, Weber barbecue grill, microwave, DVD, VHS VCR, Directv.

Home is located about two blocks from seventh hole of golf course. Play golf, swim, tennis, horseback ride, visit Yosemite; there are plenty of activities. The person responsible should be at least 25+ years old. Our community pool opens mid May. There is no charge for use of this beautiful swimming pool. You just need to show your guest permit to the pool staff and sign in.

You will sleep in comfort at our house! One king in master bedroom, one queen in second bedroom, full size convertible futon and two twins in large downstairs game room/3rd bedroom. Note second twin is on the floor/has no frame. We also have several air mattresses that renters are welcome to use. We now offer guests use of two TVs both on DIRECT TV, one with 50' screen. Fully carpeted except for kitchen. Please no party animals. Enjoy, but enjoy responsibly. This is not run down rental property, but our personal vacation home. No smoking please. .

This is a gated community, so you MUST enter through the Pine Mountain Lake (PML) Main Gate in order to reach house, which is located at 18992 Jimmie Bell St. in Groveland. Within the PML community it is also known as Unit 7 lot 170. Maximum occupancy is seven people at this rate irregardless of age. If you are planning on having more than seven, this must be pre-approved by Alan or Susan at additional cost.

Please first try to respond through our VRBO ad. If you encounter any problems, you can try e-mailing us directly. Our YAHOO address is alanmiller2004 .
We have a local housekeeper, but we live in Macao, China for most of the year.

  • Tax Rate 10%


For the quoted price occupant limit is SEVEN. There is an extra charge of $10 per person per day for each person exceeding this maximum.

One night stays are not usually available. Normally TWO nights are the minimum.

Weekly rates are NOT available for peak summer periods. (Memorial Day through Labor Day)

Weekly rates may be requested for other periods but may differ depending on the number of guests and time frame. Holiday rates are normally THREE night minimums at $175 per night.

Cancellation Policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. Cancellations with less than 30 days notice agree to forfeit all rental fees. Your security deposit and housekeeping fees will be refunded. Some leniency may be given if the cancelling party agrees to re-book and come during the off season (non-holiday) of the same calendar year. Off-season is defined as after Labor Day, but not during a holiday period. During 2013, we refunded several thousand in rental fees due to the "nearby" Rim Fire and would willingly do so again if the air quality in the local, Groveland area is unhealthy. However, this policy does not apply to fires in further away places like Yosemite National Park.

PMLA FEES: Pine Mountain Lake Association charges a $27 fee to ALL renters entering the community. Under the rules, you must check in with the guard at the main gate on Pine Mountain Lake Drive and state that you are renting our home. The gate is always open 24X7. Other roads like Mueller have card access only barriers which are only accessible by home owners. The guards are helpful and will even give you a map or directions upon request, but they also will charge you a $25 fee, good for the duration of your stay. We ask for your understanding in this matter. Home owners also pay such fees, but much larger ones, approximately $2,000 per home each year. These fees help maintain the PMLA system of private roads, beaches, pool and other facilities.

Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Car: Recommended

There is a bocce ball court at the main Marina and there is normally a get together there every Tuesday evening weather permitting. People will generally also bring food to grill and a dish to share. We have enjoyed this numerous times and it's always fun. There are also pickleball courts located near the country club. Please see our community website for more details.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are not only VRBO property owners, but customers as well. The attached photo shows Susan and Alan Miller scuba diving off Michaelmas Cay on the Great Barrier Reef in Dec 2008. We stayed at a lovely VRBO rental in Palm Cove, Australia about 20 miles north of Cairns.

Why the Owner Chose Groveland, CA, USA:
A former work colleague of mine from Iran first introduced us to Pine Mountain Lake. He had purchased a cabin there and just threw me the keys one day and suggested we go up and see it. It was a particularly cold day in January and there was no heat in his cabin other than a couple of space heaters. Nonetheless, after our first night stay, we were off and looking for our own place the next morning! We purchased our home three weeks later!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the peace and quiet of the area. We are close to the golf course which is perfect for the avid golfer. Playing billiards and ping pong is always a lot of fun. Susan especially enjoys swimming at the lake!
