About the Property
A 3.5 bedroom, 2 bathroom mountain house with 2 private decks and a private dock
In cooler weather, the 2 wood stoves make the entire house toasty and cozy. There is also a thermostat for central heating.
Upstairs there is a queen bedroom, a bedroom with 2 twin beds, a full bath, a living room with wood stove and stereo, a spacious kitchen, dining area, and access to the upper deck. Downstairs there is another queen bedroom with full bath, an entertainment room with DVD player/TV, a futon sofa that folds out to be a queen bed, and access to the lower deck, with bistro table/chairs and hammock. The futon is next to the stairs, which are open to the living room upstairs.
The house is a great base for exploring Yosemite National Park and the surrounding Sierra Nevada, but given the lake, the space, the nearby beaches and other amenities, and downtown Groveland, it's also a destination in its own right for family trips, birthday parties, romantic weekends, holidays, friend reunions, creative solitude, etc.

The house is about 30 miles from the gate of Yosemite National Park, surrounded by the Stanislaus National Forest, in the historic Mother Lode Gold Country region, and not far from the Foothills Wine Region.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I came to California 13 years ago, and immediately fell in love with the Yosemite area and set about looking for way to have a home base here. If you browse the bookshelves at the house, you'll get a sense of my travels and my interests from the overwhelming number of wildflower, mushroom, and wildlife field guides for California, my native New England, and my more temporary homes like Japan and New Mexico. I work as a translator in San Francisco, but having this house allows me to keep one foot in the mountains, and to make frequent escapes from the SF fog to recharge my spirit by soaking up some beautiful natural surroundings.
Why the Owner Chose Groveland, CA, USA:
Buying this house came about as a part of my long-time passion for exploring and sharing the beautiful Sierra Nevada and Yosemite National Park. I was splitting my time between San Francisco and Tokyo, while also working a few months a year as a backcountry hiking and mountain guide in Yosemite, and I found that when I had down time Groveland was where I wanted to be. The private dock on the lake closed the deal for me.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is close enough to Yosemite to use as a base for exploring the Park, but has all of the comforts of home--like a well-equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer--that hotels or tent cabins lack. Also, since the house is on Pine Mountain Lake and just a few miles from historic downtown Groveland, there is plenty to do right there without having to go very far.
