Overview

About the property

2 Story House, 2 Bedrooms + Recreation Room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Just a quarter mile from the front gate, we are close to everything! Scenic Pine Mountain Lake is a half a mile or so from our front door. Sit on the grass under the trees and enjoy the lake environment.

The 18 hole Pine Mountain Lake championship golf course is a mile away. Visit the Country Club for dinner or The Iron Door Saloon, the oldest continually running saloon in California, which is right uptown, just outside the gate.

Reach Yosemite floor in less than an hour. Unparalleled beauty by day and an easy ride home at its end. Visit Jamestown, Sonora, and the quaint town of Murphy's with its well-known wineries, restaurants, day spas, concerts, and live events. Tuolumne's Black Oak Casino is a half hour away.

Our 1600 square foot two-story house gives you plenty of room to spread out. With two queen-sized beds, one full futon, one twin bunk, and a pull-out sofabed, you can fit everyone. New TVs on both floors and a ping-pong/pool table for activity. We have a huge backyard area for all sorts of ball playing plus a championship sized horseshoe pit.

Relax out on the porch to watch the sun go down and look for the deer. Bar-b-que or pick up some great Mexican food in town. Use the kitchen to cook dinner or mix drinks.

One note: renters have been surprised to discover that Pine Mountain Lake Association charges a per car one time fee of $27, recently increased. This fee does not get paid through this site, but is remitted at the gate upon entrance

About Martina Lawlor

I teach middle school and love to be around kids that age. But I also love to get away to the mountains for the weekend to relax.

My kids are in their thirties, and I look forward to the day when I can look off the deck and see little ones playing horseshoes and swinging from the rope on the old oak tree out back.

Martina Lawlor purchased this house in 2001

Why Martina Lawlor chose Yosemite Area

The location of a lake property in a gated community less than three hours from Silicon Valley with our home's location so close to the gate, the lake, and the golf course made it an intoxicatingly easy decision to buy into Pine Mountain Lake. Knowing others could enjoy a home we can't use full time seemed to enhance its attractiveness.

What makes this house unique

To be in a community yet feel as alone as one wishes, to walk outside at night in the dark and see a sky filled with all the stars one can't see at home, to walk alongside deer and not have to listen to the sound of freeway noise...what a life. What a joy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a great time with my grandkids here at your house. It's so large, the kids loved the space and the ping-pong table and running around out back. You have a beautiful home and it made our time away really enjoyable and comfortable! Thanks you.

We had wonderful stay with our kids at this house. It's very clean and well-maintained. Kids had a lot things to do (watching TV and deers outside, playing ping pong, and swimming in very warm and nice lake). Martina is very nice host and helped us immediately with all our needs and questions.

Very clean and felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families with lots of kids... the split level was great so we could have a break when we needed it. The kitchen had every tool and appliance needed, couches were comfy. We brought our Roku to use on the tv which was handy. Pine lake was so great to hang out in, the pool was fun at night and mg husband loved the golf course. We would love to come back again:)

convenient location, nice neighborhood and 5-star owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights here for our sons' first visit to Yosemite. The house is fully equipped and reasonably close to the park and the pricing makes it high-value. As a comparison, we booked yosemite westgate lodge before. By saving ~15 min driving time, we had to pay almost twice per night/per family. We also got a surprise to discover the fun on Pine Mountain Lake marina.

More importantly, the owner is really so warmhearted and helpful! First, we forgot to mention that we needed two parking permits and she solved the problem within one hour when we sent her an email for help. Second, when we left the house, we accidentally forgot my elder son's safety blanket in the room. She immediately helped us to locate the blanket and sent it back. We are so grateful!

As a summary, we highly recommend booking this property if you need a two-bedroom house near Yosemite, because of the location, the price and the owner!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip the stay at the house was nice and easy drive to Yosemite. We hiked everyday and enjoy the restful sleep at the house every night and breakfast in the moring and sitting on the porch watching the deer graze. The pizza shop Two Guys Pizza was right close to the house and very good and afordable. Would recomend this place to stay. Thanks Martina! We had a great time!
