About the Property

Three story house, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our lovely three-story home accommodates UP TO eight (8) occupants only. We require ONE weeks notice for ANY reservation.

We do not take last minute reservations! Even if our property shows availability we do not book last minute!

This is a high-end elegant home. It is professionally decorated and appointed with valuable art and antiques. We appreciate and insist upon renters who respect and value the elegance and uniqueness of our property.

In this mountain gem of a community enjoy one of Southern California's best-kept secrets. Our home is a retreat for writers, perfect for a romantic or family mountain getaway. It is a quiet retreat to refresh from stress, or even a 'girls weekend' getaway! Please check our calendar for availability before inquiring. If we're booked on the dates that interest you, please BOOKMARK us for future reference. High Speed Wireless INTERNET accessible throughout our home and property. Bring your laptop!

Located at 5,600 foot level, our mountain home provides a nearby destination with a quiet and remote atmosphere. Pine Mountain Club has a true four-season mountain climate, and is a perfect year-round destination for a getaway! (Additional photos are always available upon request!)

Located on a nice, QUIET street yet a few minutes from the Village and clubhouse, our home is three-stories, has a light and airy feeling with its vaulted ceiling, wet bar, wood fire place, sleeps UP TO eight (8) - three bedrooms (a king size bed and a large walk-in closet, two twin beds, and a queen bed) and two and quarter baths, a game room w/air hockey, table tennis, wood burning stove, and sofa (full size) bed.

Ideal for two/three couples, or a small family.

Sorry, we cannot accommodate more than eight (8) occupants at any time.

Our home is beautifully decorated with a mix of modern and antique furnishings by Sigrid Insull acclaimed interior designer and contains up scale amenities (we offer popcorn maker, bottles of water, bathrooms with custom soaps, lotions, organic hand sanitizers & fluffy towels, coffee, hot chocolate, teas, Keurig coffemaker and variety of Kcups), in addition to snow blower w/electric starter. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, cutlery, cookware, cooking appliances like a crock pot and more you are welcome to use.

Our home is VERY clean and comfortable (2200+ square ft) with unobstructed mountain views. Our deck faces east affording stunning sunrises.

We are in the Los Padres National Forest - wildlife (deer, bobcat, fox, bunnies, squirrels, quail, dove, stellar and scrub jays) abounds. Sledding awaits at Mt. Pino's (8300' - 8800') just 15-20 minutes away, GREAT for cross-country skiing and snow-play destination! Rare California Condor preserve located on Mil Portrero Road (main road through town) apx 15 miles west.

Bring your CD's and we have Direct HDTV & smart Blu Ray DVD players in the living room, & master bedroom, with Direct HDTV & DVD player in gameroom. During spring and summer there is a table w/four chairs & umbrella, and two Adirondack chairs, on the deck w/beautiful view of the mountains. There's also a propane grill and grill utensils.

NOTE: Due to our elevation (5,600 ft) on the Mountain, SNOW may be present during cooler months. No air conditioning necessary.
While our roads are well-maintained, area CHP require that you carry chains (or have a 4x4 vehicle) when snow is possible. Links to Pine Mountain Club and Weather Conditions below give a detailed outlook on this special community.

If you are looking for a close, relaxing, year-round getaway, and appreciate a clean and upscale home, we welcome you. Attention has been paid to EVERY detail in our home, and we offer amenities not typical of most vacation rentals here on the Mountain!

Rental includes up to four (4) guest passes ( up to six can be made available when requested) to club facilities; a phone (with answering machine) is available for local calls; long distance calling available but will be deducted from deposit.

Note: Cell service IS available on the Mountain via VERIZON. In the event of an illness/emergency call 911 & Paramedics are located nearby in the Village.

This is a 'housekeeping home/cabin', which means that you are asked to leave it as clean and tidy as you found it.
All cleaning supplies are provided.

Due to the extreme fire danger in the area, smoking is NOT allowed in our home or on our property. Sorry, we do not allow pets.
