About the property

Located in Groveland California in a gated community called Pine Mountain Lake

Our "Pine Mountain Getaway" is located in the private gated community of Pine Mountain Lake in Groveland California. Our 3 bedroom 2 bath chalet offers accommodations for 8 people. Overlooking the 11th hole of a Championship golf course and within walking distance to Dunn Court Beach - just one of three beaches on the lake. Yosemite National Park is a quick 26 miles to the entrance and another scenic 23 miles to Yosemite Valley. You can reach many of the historical landmarks within 45 to 90 minutes from our cabin.

As you open the front door, you are greeted by an open, spacious living room, kitchen & dining area. This main floor has 2 bedrooms (1 king & 1 queen), full bathroom and washer & dryer. Upstairs has 1 large bedroom (1 queen & twin/trundle beds), full bathroom and a spacious kid-friendly bonus room equipped with a 55-inch flat screen TV, DVD player & movies, a Foosball table and a table ideal for board games, puzzles or just taking in the view of the golf course. Direct TV and free WiFi is also available.

The covered deck, located off the kitchen/dining area is equipped with a BBQ and a dining table for 6. Additional seating is available. Sit back and relax facing the 11th hole and enjoy the action watching the golfers or the deer grazing on the greens.

Groveland is a historic mining town, and also home to a great downtown that includes a park, library, museum, shops, restaurants, and the Iron Door Saloon. Which is said to be California's oldest continuously operating saloon. Nearby attractions include Yosemite National Park, Tuolumne Meadows, Hetch Hetchy, Mariposa Grove, Lake Don Pedro, Mercer Caverns, Columbia State Park and the historic areas of Sonora & Jamestown. There is a shuttle to Yosemite from Groveland. It's called YARTS. You can get additional information about the schedule and fairs on their website.

We hope that our guests enjoy our Getaway as much as we do. We recently remodeled our cabin with all the necessities you can ask for. We welcome you to stay, relax and enjoy what Pine Mountain Lake has to offer. You can find more information about PML on their website at

About Debi and Vineet Gupta

We're a family of 4 who looks for fun & yet relaxing vacation spots. We discovered Pine Mountain Lake during our own VRBO experience in 2013. Pine Mountain Lake has so many amenities that we all can enjoy. We knew we needed to be apart of this great community and we're so glad we did!

Debi and Vineet Gupta purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Debi and Vineet Gupta chose Groveland

We chose this location because within a few hours we are out of the hustle & bustle of the bay area and into the peaceful retreat of the mountains. There is so much to do here that satisfies all of us, golfing, the lake, the stables and of course Yosemite along with all the other historical surrounding areas. In fact we love it so much that we were able to purchase another cabin in May 2017. Please take a look at our Mountain Hideaway

What makes this chalet unique

Our Pine Mountain Getaway is just that. A Getaway to enjoy the mountains and all the amenities that Pine Mountain Lake has to offer. We like to think that we have provided our guests with all the comforts one would expect in a home away from home. We hope you find it relaxing and enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best vacation rental for families with kids. Beside the crib and high chair there are toys, books and games so the kids had such a great time (even a gate in the stairs). The house is so well organized and equipped with everything that you need for your stay and they thought of every little detail!!!

Thank you for a great time :)

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property because it was a 1.5 hr drive to the entrance of Yosemite (2hr to some the of main hikes) From the moment we booked this rental, the owner has been very prompt in answering questions and very helpful. GPS is not very accurate around that area and the directions provided by Debi were very easy to follow. We went as a family of 7 and everyone quickly made themselves at home. It was very clean and organized. It had everything we needed to make our meals at home and there's a grocery store right around the corner that has everything! We loved to sit out on the deck and enjoy the deer running around. I would highly recommend this rental! Great experience.

Sweet cottage - fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

Pine Mountain Getaway was a home-away-from-home for my family visiting CA from AL and NJ. We wanted to find a place near to Yosemite for exploration and resting. The home was a sweet place to rest and reunion - play at the lake, watch deer, and enjoy the views and weather from the back porch.

We really appreciated the generosity of the owners through their thorough organization of ideas, details, and amenities - as well as the small touches throughout the house to make the home cozy, welcoming and usable. Since we were on a long trip from home it made travel very easy.

The kitchen and bathroom extras were helpful too since we didn't have to buy everything at the local food store (like condiments, paper products, and other items).

The house was cozy, warm, and welcoming.

If you're interested in visiting Yosemite - I would make the small note that Groveland is still a good distance away from Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point. We drove 1 hour - 1hr30min each way several times into the park throughout our visit. There aren't many options closer (unless you're able to stay in Yosemite Valley itself) but be advised that 20+miles to the main gate actually means 40-50+ miles to the main sight seeing areas on winding slow-going roads. In balance, it was good to have things (kayaking, golfing, canoeing) at the Pine Mountain Getaway community so we could rest in between.

Absolutely wonderful and totally relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Pine Mountain Getaway. In addition to it being a beautiful home with gorgeous surroundings, it fits two families of four very comfortably. Debi and Vinny took care of all the details. They had everything we needed, and some items that we forgot. We swam in the lake one day and had lunch at the Marina Beach Cafe. It was so relaxing! The next day we drove to Yosemite, and hiked up Vernal Falls. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for the providing the venue for our outstanding weekend away!

Such a clean, quiet, comfortable house. A perfect stay for our family!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six adults loved this cabin! The home is very clean, the owners very friendly and accommodating. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need for fun at the beach or fun hanging out at home. The two beaches we swam at in the neighborhood were very nice, providing grass, shade, sun, and sand! The water was even warm! Everyone kept commenting how great of a place this was to stay. I would definitely recommend it, and stay here again!
