Enjoy an easy inexpensive weekend getaway in this rustic mountain cabin just an hour and a half from LA, halfway between the I-5 at the Grapevine and Santa Maria on the coast. Located on a cul-de-sac in Pine Mountain Club, a private community in the Los Padres National Forest. 35 minutes from Pyramid Lake and an hour from Magic Mountain.
Available for rent any time. $140/night, 2 night minimum. 3 night minimum at $165/night some holiday periods. Ask about the 3rd night free offer with rentals Monday through Thursday, except during holiday weeks.
There is normally no added cleaning fee for your rental because I rent this as a HOUSEKEEPING CABIN - guests provide their own sheets, towels and firewood and clean the cabin before leaving. It's easy and I provide a checklist and all cleaning supplies; cleaning service and/or linens can be provided at an additional cost.
My cabin is located on two lots on a cul-de-sac, total 2/3 acre, and backs up to a green belt, so it feels very private. All knotty pine interior with lodge-like furnishings. Two large bedrooms two extra twin mattresses in walk-in closet; portable crib and high chair; one bathroom with combination tub/shower; stone fireplace; large deck overlooking wooded area. Large well-equipped kitchen including blender, coffee grinder, microwave, crock pot - everything but a dishwasher! Beautiful stained glass window in living room with scene of local hills. Three TVs; DVD, VCR and laser disc players with over 200 movies, plus books, board games and puzzles. Dual-pane windows for comfort summer and winter. Wifi internet connection and Magic Jack phone for domestic calls (at the moment there is only Verizon cell service in PMC.)
Rental includes access to beautiful mountain golf course; swimming pool in summer months (pool opens Memorial Day); catch-and-release fishing in Fern Lake, a 15 minute walk away; tennis courts; basketball and volleyball court; children's playground; clubhouse with video game room, restaurant, lounge with wifi and live music on weekends.
Village business area has restaurants, gas station, market, laundromat, post office; gift shops, internet cafe plus seasonal festivals and fairs. Hiking, sledding and cross country skiing on Mount Pinos (8800') 25 minutes away, and trail rides at a jousting school 20 miles away. Just across the street from the cabin is a lovely wooded area with pathways leading to the village, and rustic tables under the trees - an easy woodsy walk without getting in the car, especially nice for little kids.
In the winter I provide sleds, and you are welcome to use the extra boots and gloves for adults and kids that I keep in a closet downstairs. There is no smoking in the cabin.
Refundable $200 cleaning/security deposit required to hold reservation; deposit will be returned in full once the cabin has been checked and found clean and undamaged.
Roads are very well maintained by Pine Mountain Club but weather can change quickly in the mountains so be prepared with 4-wheel drive or chains in winter. Rarely, during snowy weather the rangers may stop you from driving in to PMC or up to Mt. Pinos if you don't carry chains, even if you're not required to put them on.
Please look under 'Owner Info' to see additional reviews that I've copied from guests' emails and guest book entries, and contact me with any questions about my cabin or Pine Mountain Club.
