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 will be back!

  • 4 of 5

It's very close to Yosemite, but due to road closures it was 2 hour commute. 😔 But next year I hope 120 to Yosemite is fixed. Because we will be back. It was a beautiful location!!!

Lovely comfortable house in gated community

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in the spacious house with its cozy fireplace and lounge and enjoyed the gated community with stunning golf course and lake. Everything worked so well in the house and the town was quaint and not too far from Yosemite. An unforgettable family vacation. I highly recommend you staying here and Martina was a super host.
