Convenient location for our Yosemite vacation

  • 3 of 5

My friends and I stayed in the Clouds Nest for our Yosemite trip in September. We all loved the view from the deck. The location is convenient for our daily treks into Yosemite – anywhere from half hour to an hour depending on which entrance we were heading to that day. Clouds Nest is part of a huge development – Pine Mountain Lake, which has its own amenities (swim center, marina, golf, etc.) Bracelets were provided for us to use the swimming pool, although we didn’t get a chance to go. Make sure to pick up a map of the development at the front gate. Unfortunately, the days that we stayed were the hottest days, hitting the 90s everyday, and the swamp cooler was just not able to cool the house down as much as we liked.

Roomy, great neighborhood + close to Yosemite

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Kevin‘s house in the Pine Mountain Community, I don't think the photos do it justice. We had 15 family members ( ages 10 months- 60+) and managed to fit by putting some smaller kids on an air mattress. We loved the view of the woods and loft area with pool & fusball. The only downside is that the master bedroom and master bathroom lack window coverings so there was a small privacy issue if people were grilling or sitting on the second level deck . It was about 30 minute drive to Big Oak flat entrance and 1 hour 10 minutes to Yosemite village. The Pine Mountain community is wonderful, we enjoyed a day at the park/beach and took the canoe out on the lake. There were many other amenities including golf or stables and tennis we didn’t even have time to check out. Kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed the little extras like the wii, boards games, and sports equipment.

Smith Pine Mountain Lake home is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a week long family reunion in this home with 12 adults and 4 kids. It accommodated us really well and we appreciated all of the amenities that came with it. The home itself is very well equipped with linens, comfortable beds, huge couch with huge t.v. and very complete kitchen. The bbq on the deck was great for us and the soaking tub and steam shower in the master bath were a real treat! The Pine Mountain Lake community was fantastic. The house is a 3 minute drive to the main marina and swim beach with fun activities for everyone. There was so much to do that we didn't get around to it all! Yosemite is an easy hour away with many other points of interest nearby as well. We couldn't have asked for a better a location or accommodations! The owner, Kevin was extremely helpful and always responded to emails very promptly with answers to all of our questions. The information about the property was very complete and the instructions for access and everything else were easy to follow and our security deposit was returned very promptly. This place is a great deal with so much to offer!
