About the property

Lakefront home close to marina, 25 min from Yosemite entrance, sleeps 8 adults

If you've never been to Yosemite, this is a great way to visit. If you have been there, have you seen it in the winter time? It's an entirely new experience!

This lakefront home has 3 bedrooms, two baths, and a large game room with over 1500 feet of deck on two levels. It sleeps 8 adults and features completely remodeled bathrooms and kitchen. There is a paddle boat for guest usage, Wi-Fi, and cable. The game room downstairs includes an arcade dart game (no quarters needed), Xbox 360, Wii, and a guest computer.

There are so many places to gather in this house! It's easy to put the kids in the game room with the adults upstairs in the living room or on the upstairs deck. Two of the bedrooms have their own doors that open onto the decks.

Due to all the rain we've received this year, the water level is wonderful! Pine Mountain Lake Marina is only steps away. The marina is such a popular destination that parking is very tight. You'll be able to walk there very easily right from the front door.

The home has Air Conditioning upstairs (the game room doesn't need it), heaters in every room, and a fireplace in the game room and living room. There is also full laundry, a wine refrigerator, and a dishwasher. For your outdoor cooking pleasure, there is a propane BBQ on the upstairs deck. Stop by the meat market in town on the way in and pick up some amazing grass-fed beef to BBQ. This house will book quickly so don't wait!

About The Lemson Family

Our family purchased the home in 2014 as an opportunity to bring us closer together in a family-run business. Cecile, the mother of the family, has lived in Pine Mountain Lake for over 15 years. Her two sons, Sean and Darren visit often from the bay area with Darren's wife Shelby. We all welcome you to our home away from home. We hope you enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Why The Lemson Family chose Groveland

The matriarch of our family, Cecile, has lived in Pine Mountain Lake for over 15 years with her husband Randy. Her two sons had discussed owning a home up here for years and when we all walked into this home, we knew we'd found the right place. The location in Pine Mountain Lake cannot be beat and the proximity to Yosemite National Park is a bonus. Some of our happiest childhood memories happened in Yosemite and we're glad to be a part of helping other families make happy memories of their own.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite thing to do at this home is to sit on the decks and listen to the ducks and the crickets at night. The home is surrounded by huge pine trees that will make you feel as if you're sitting in the middle of a forest. Just down the lighted path in the back is the lake itself. While it's low this year due to drought, the home is perfectly situated in a private cove. Probably the best feature on the house is the over 1500 square feet of decking on two levels. It provides so much opportunity for socializing or relaxing. If you're looking for a more traditional beach setting, the marina is just 100 yards around the corner and features a great snack bar, lawns, BBQs, sailboat, canoe, and paddle boat rentals (though we provide a paddle boat for guests).

Beautiful house on lake

  • 4 of 5

This property is great! The house was exactly what we were looking for. It is right on the lake and has close access to the marina. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We would recommend this to others and hope to be back again one day.

The Best Property we've stayed at in years!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was in a perfect location, steps from Marina. The owners have taken such good care of the property and have gone to great lengths to include instructions on every item in the place (all the way down to the microwave). Thank you for sharing...

Quite Lake Front House

  • 4 of 5

This home is located in a quite gated community with lake access out the back door. With the large amount of rain CA received this year the small brook that flowed in the lake could be heard from the back deck. Creating a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Close to a quaint little town and only approximately 45 minutes to Yosemite National Park. The owner is very easy to work with and the house has been updated.

Charming Lake Front House

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days over the Prez holiday in Feb '17 staying at this charming lake house. We enjoyed the large deck, fireplace, and access to the Lake. The owner was easy to work with. We would definitely stay there again.

This isn't just a great year-round place to stay while you visit Yosemite. Pine Mountain Lake and Groveland are destinations themselves. There is a great golf course, tennis courts, a swimming pool, beautiful marina, and plenty of quiet. This house is in the center of everything. Sonora is just a 35 minute drive away if you're looking for most major chain stores and Yosemite's gate is just 30 minutes away.
