About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our house in Pine Mountain Lake is cozy and convenient. You can enjoy the amenities of Pine Mountain Lake without the hassle of being inside the gates. (Depending on which gate you enter) We are a 30 minute drive to the main gate of Yosemite National Park. Then the Valley is an additional 30 minute drive with beautiful vista views along the way!

The giant oak shade trees of our home along with the rustic decor provide a relaxing feel that can be its own destination. The private lake has 3 beaches that can be enjoyed by our guests. Also stables for trail rides, swimming pool, golf course and the list goes on! To see all the amenities available to our guests, go to

Deer and Wild turkeys frequently pass by our property and the many windows enables a sneek view.

We have recently renovated our courtyard. It now has a 5+ person hot tub! The hot tub has 2 loungers for stargazing and 3 seats. The hot tub can also be used as a pool for small children in the summer. We turn the heat off because it can be heated and ready for use in just 15-20 minutes. It has a special heating system. We do not use harsh chemicals. We use 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide for sanitation. We have a swimming pool filtration system which we keep on 24/7. We also use high quality essential oils for an aromatherapy experience.

We are conveniently located only being a 5 minute drive to town which has a grocery store and restaurants. Also guests enjoy taking the Yarts bus to Yosemite only 5 minutes away.

We are health conscious people and do not use perfumed detergents on our linens. We also have an under the counter water filtration system for drinking water. Although our tap water is good, there are the standard chemicals in it. We keep a very stocked kitchen. You may use the spices and anything there that you might have forgotten.

Sayona loves flowers so you will always see some blooms in the courtyard and back deck. Even though it is a bit of a war with the deer!

About Property Manager/Owner

Brandon and Sayona Hoffman were married in 2010. We own a tile/stone business. We do business mostly in the Pine Mountain Lake/Groveland area, but have completed many jobs in the San Francisco/Bay Area. Brandon has been a tile contractor for over 20 years. Sayona used to own a Bed and Breakfast in Groveland. She is very familiar with the hospitality business and enjoys it. We frequently go to Tanzania East Africa for our volunteer work. We have been focusing on helping the deaf there. We plan to return as soon as possible. Our rental property helps us with the expenses. We also bring things home from Africa to sell. We have a business Instagram at africatreasurehunters. This also helps support our volunteer work.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this house in 2015

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Groveland

Our mountain home is cozy, peaceful and is a wonderful place for socializing and enjoying life. We are a 30 minute drive to the main gate of Yosemite and we are a destination in itself. We enjoy a private lake with 3 beaches. Go to the Pine Mountain Lake website for more information about where we live. Sayona's favorite place in the world is Yosemite National Park. She has lived up here for 30 years and raised her 3 children up here. Brandon has grown to love it as well when he moved up 8 years ago. We both love the area very much!

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the home when I walked in just a year ago. The open floor plan surrounded by the courtyard made me love the feel. We like to entertain and this house is set up for it. I love the many windows and the light and cheery atmosphere of our place. I have lived in Pine Mountain Lake off and on for 30 years and being outside the private gates for a change appealed to me because Ferretti Road (our road) is very convenient. We are close to the grocery store, public transportation, the lake and golf course.

We had a perfect family Thanksgiving vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and extremely well furnished. We loved the wood stove, hot tub, and fire pit. The beds were super comfy and the kitchen had all the appliances and dishes to prepare a complete Thanksgiving dinner

The owners were very nice and helpful.

The house was nice, clean all of the amenities a family would need. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Sayona was very helpful and gracious. The location was great for heading in to Yosemite. Little bit of a drive (1:00 hr to the valley), but gorgeous along the way. Their house has all of the comforts of home. Deer will even pass through as you sit in the hot tub or at the fire pit. Thank you for a memorable time in Yosemite.

Beautiful home, lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We (four adults) stayed in Sayona's home for two nights and enjoyed every minute! Sayona met us upon check-in and she was a very warm and friendly host. Everything in the home was clean, beautiful, well-decorated, and so comfortable for our group. The hot tub and patio area were lovely — we had dinner outside one evening. We spent a day hiking in Toulumne Meadows/ Tioga pass area of Yosemite, and the home was conveniently located for our plans. I would definitely stay again!

all you need!

  • 5 of 5

we had a perfect stay at this beautiful, well-considered home. watching the rising full moon while sitting in a hot tub and stargazing after spending ten hours at yosemite was a spectacular way to end an incredible day. we felt like we'd picked the perfect spot for the trip we'd planned. i have breathing difficulties around a lot of laundry and cleaning products and sayona went above and beyond to make sure that i was able to safely stay there. what more could i ask for? we had a great time and everything we needed during our trip. thank you for all your considerations and the hospitality!

Great house close to Yosemite and the tiny town of groveland. Beds were super comfortable, kitchen was stocked with everything to cook with (minus groceries), and the hot tub under the stars is breathtaking. We loved every minute!
