About Diane or Jay Gilbert

My husband Jay and I purchased our home in the Peter Pam development when my son James was 2 years old. We bought it from the original owners who lived in Southern California, so the home was rarely used and everything was "like new". We have enjoyed snowy family Christmas' here as well as summers playing at nearby Pinecrest Lake. Being from nearby Oakdale, my husband has fond memories of Pinecrest, when as a child he spent summers here camping with his family.

I have enjoyed decorating our mountain home, mixing vintage pieces, including many old postcards and pictures of Pinecrest from years past with new comfortable furnishings. I think you will find our home to be a relaxing place with all the modern conveniences.

Now that our son is older he prefers to spend weekends at home playing with friends, so we are making our home available to you. We trust that you will enjoy it as much as we have and create many special memories of your own.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time over the New Year's. It is such a beautiful place that has been decorated so lovingly and there was not a single thing missing. The beds were super comfortable and all the towels so luscious and plenty of them. The beautiful home did help ease the disappointment of the missing snow and since we could not hop onto the ski slopes we made full use of the home's playing cards, Monopoly game, etc. We cooked great food and enjoyed the sun on the pretty deck. We hope to be back!

Wonderful, beautifully appointed home

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay. The cabin is gorgeous. It is very comfortable and very nicely furnished. The owners are very responsive and delightful to deal with. An absolute must to stay here. We're hoping to make it back again.

Beautiful house, close to skiing

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay for our ski trip to Dodge Ridge and would stay here again on a future trip! Diane was very responsive and accommodating. The house was clean, spacious, and our kids loved the movie and toy collection (as well as the bunk beds). The kitchen was very well stocked with good quality cooking supplies and appliances.

We loved having the use of the large garage so that we didn't have to clear snow off of the car each morning. It was an easy drive up to Dodge Ridge each day to ski. We recommend Mia's for a great dinner out as well.

One thing to note about the wifi - it is very slow and only suitable low bandwidth use (we could not use for wifi calling/streaming on our phones and email access was spotty). Wasn't a problem -- we just relaxed and enjoyed the time off the grid!

Snow Trip 2017

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property. It was our second stay there. One during the summer and now one during the winter. The house feels like a second home to us. The road in, the drive way and parking pads were have all plowed. The interior was cozy, clean and welcoming. There was a good collection of video's and board games available. Very nice modern kitchen and eating area. Would definitely go back again.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

This pleasant mountain getaway is truly a home away from home! Our family has stayed here many times and each time is just as comforting as the last. Close to Pinecrest, a short drive to Sonora and I would suggest dinner at Mia's Brick Oven Pizza just down the street. Can;t wait to come back!

Lovely Mountain Home

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The area is very peaceful and about ten minutes from Pinecrest Lake. The cabin is well outfitted and comfortable for two couples. We cooked and there is plenty of china, cutting boards, pots and pans, etc. We hope to return again next year.

Very comfortable and clean vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in this vacation home and it won't be our last. I have been going to Pinecrest Lake my whole life and have always stayed in cabins but eventually decided we needed a bit more luxury. There is a clean and bright look in a home vs. a cabin (which tend to be dark). This home has air conditioning, a washer and dryer and an upgraded kitchen. When we arrived this year I was again impressed with how clean it was upon our arrival.There is plenty of room for two families and the beds are all very comfortable. There are large closets so you don't feel like you are living out of your suitcase when there is so much room available to store everything. The deck out back is new and large. There is morning sunlight and in the evening it is shaded and cool. On the deck is a large table with an umbrella, it was very comfortable and there was room for all of us. Probably the best part about this vacation home is the cabinet in the living room full of probably any movie ever worth watching. We spent a lot of time watching the Olympics this year but still managed to watch 'Rebel Without a Cause' and 'Rebecca'. We loved having a large garage to pull our car into at the end of every day. The garage also keeps your car cool and there is room to leave your beach gear. Thank you Diane for a wonderful visit, we'll talk to you next year! One last thing is I'd love it if the dining room chandelier had a dimmer on it. ;)
