What Past Guests Are Saying
Morgan Hill, CA, United States
Always love Creekside Retreat
We always feel like we are at home at Creekside Retreat. the house is great - lots of room and very comfortable. We would recommend it to anyone.
Cournonperral, France, France
Beautiful location, clean, very good property's
Fremont, Ca, United States
Home away from home
It was great time for my family. Nature-friendly environment is very nice for kid. One thing I like to suggest is to install internet service or improve mobile phone service. We needed to check the status of rim fire during our staying. However, we could not check whenver we want. I was worried a liitle bit.
Sunnyvale, CA, United States
Secluded getaway in a quaint little town
The house was spacious and well equipped. Nice quiet location. It's a bit hard to find at night as there are no street lights and very small wooden sign. If you want to go to Yosemite, it's about 90 to 120 minutes.
Monterey, CA, United States
Nice vacation rental in Groveland.
Milford, OH, United States
We had a very nice stay. One improvement would be to have sheets and towels available so as to not need to pack them as there is a washer and dryer available. Thanks very much.
Pleasanton, CA, United States
We had a great time at Pine Mountain Lake - it is a great location to explore Groveland and Yosemite. The lake is beautiful and safe for children to swim and play. We were there for Memorial Weekend and it was busy, but once in our property we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere - peaceful and quiet.
The only minor disadvantages were;
1 - No gate pass - we had to enter through the main gate each time and often had to queue to get in. Guests should be issued temporary passes or a fast track lane when you have checked in already.
2 - We were refused access to the lake on our final day having 'checked out at 11'. We should have been given a pass. The attendant did let us in after a discussion.
3 - We could not access the swimming pool as the bell was not working and no-one answered our knocking despite multiple families being in the pool and the attendant in the office.
San Francisco, CA, United States
perfect cabin for a family vacation
This cabin was great. Nice open floor plan and carpet which was great for the 3 little kids we had cruising around! Great deck and a little stream in the back yard which was fun for exploring as well. Just wish it was closer to Yosemite!
San Jose, CA, United States
We loved the privacy and location of this rental. It was very clean, except for the back deck from fallen tree debris, but this is understandable. The deer and wildlife closeby was amazing. We had a very relaxing visit.
Pebble Beach, CA, United States
Enjoyed our stay
All in all everything was great with this rental. Remax was really easy to deal with, great directions and a beautiful area! We would stay again.
Buellton, Ca, United States
Cabin OK, too far from lake
The lack of key card access really added 5-10 minutes each time you wanted to go to the lake or else where like the pool or town. re-entry was through the front security gate and quite a pain in the neck. the house could use a couple ceiling fans in the bedrooms. The carpet must also go.
San Mateo, Ca, United States
Carpet/Flooring very stained and over all very dusty
Restaurant was excellent at the resort with good service
Homewood, IL, United States
We had a great experience at the home in Pine Mountain Lake. The house was spacious and clean, and the lake area was excellent!
Vista, CA, United States
We didn't know what to expect...renting long distance and online...but were thrilled with what we got! We rented with the the intention of seeing Yosemite (and we did, it was great!) but this cabin itself with the lake, swimming pool, and tennis courts is a great destination spot itself! You can just hang out on the lake beaches, jump on the water trampoline, take the boat taxi, picnic for the week and there's your vacation!! We will absolutely go back! Also, anyone who is dissatisfied is overly picky, because there was nothing lacking with this cabin!
Santa Clara, Ca, United States
We were a group of 6 Adults and 2 toddlers and we had a great time at this house. The house was clean and kitchen was well equipped.
We had little trouble with the soft mattresses as we would liked a more firm hard beds
Mercer Island, WA, United States
Solitude is not golden
No iphone service,no wifi service. TV/ VCR instructions absent. Not much help from rental. Emailed advice but had no wifi. Dirty sponge in kitchen. Kitchen utensils dated. Worn out frying pans. Burners uneven. Place was dark. Bed comfortable. LONG DRIVE TO YOSEMITE. Advertisement says only 25 minutes away. Really 50 to valley. local grocery store very good and friendly.
Claremont, CA, United States
Great cabin very clean with with all the amenities we were looking for at a great location.
Brentwood, CA, United States
Cabin rental at Pine Lake
The location is beautifull and very confortable, everyone was really nice. The cabis was great, the only issue we found was that the bead sheets were not clean. Overall it was a great stay.
Livermore, CA, United States
Winter in groveland
Fantastic house and vacation. Warm, cozy and clean. 2 Guys Pizza was great and had fast delivery.
Gave location 4/5 because of the gated community access. Bit of a pain but not a deal breaker.
Elk Grove, CA
Great house and place to stay
The experience was fantastic. The house is close to Yosemite and the town of Groveland is perfect. The house has everything you need and more.
San Francisco, CA
Lovely spot in a beautiful part of the world. The only comment about the house was that the patio doors were hard to open and the blinds weren't in great condition- ready to break.
Wonderful vacation stay
I feel right at home when I step into the cabinet. Very cozy and yet the living room is very roomy where everyone can play, chat and have a good time at. The staff is very helpful and answer our question timely. The area is nice and calm. The lake is beautiful and fun to swim in. Just a lot of good things to say about this place. I will come back next time for our Yosemeti trip.
San Jose, CA
the house was comfortable, and the fact that was close to the la
Our stay was nice, but there were a few stuff I would like to mention.
1-our garbage bin were full already and we could only add 2 smaller bags to it.(that was a pain taking care of the garbage).
2- there was only 2 bathroom tissues and we were not told to bring it.
3- the bed in the smaller room, was horrible. nobody could sleep on it(with the smallest move it would make lots of noise)
4-there were too many signs about cleaning. When we went to the offic, they said it was just picking up after yourself. Your sign does not give you this impression. We spend the morrning of our check only cleaning:(
Mountain View, CA
Loved the house and...
Loved the house and its location. Great floorplan, great window views out over a very private forested area, great deck. Will definitely be back.
Relax & Have a good time.
Overall, we love this house. Just the shower in the master bedroom have indication problem, which C is hot water and H is for cold water. another problem for us is there is no signal for our cell phone, and the house phone can't make a local call too while we stay. Good things is we all fine. and We do have a good time there. Thanks!
A PLACE TO RELAX
WE STAYED OVER THE WEEKEND IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, AND WAS MAGICAL, EVERYTHING PERFECT, WE WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK AND RECOMMEND TO OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, THANK YOU.
Santa Clara, CA
Horrible experience during our stay during Christmas 2010
We were there during Christmas 2010 for 2 nights and 3 days. We had an horrible experience during our visit as there was no hot water sufficient on any day through out stay. We were not able to get the maintenance folks to fix the problem. Also, when I spoke with Alan the owner of the property, he said it is common for a TWO bed TWO bath Cabin not having hot water for hours after the first person take bath. I am not sure in which world it is common. Also, the owner was very rude when asked for the explanation. Also, the bath room door is not getting locked. When I informed the same to Alen, he said that I should inform to other people when I am using the bathroom which I can't lock which absolutely doesn't make sense. We couldn't take bath for almost 2 days and it delayed our overall trip to Yosemite.
I would not recommend this property to anyone.
Response from RE/MAX Yosemite Gold - 12/28/2010
We apologize for your inconvenience and your dissatisfaction with our Services.It is not the normal procedure for our Guests to deal directly with the Owner, but you secured this reservation through an individual ad placed by this Owner.Regarding our maintenance department, there were not any missed calls placed to the maintenance line during your stay. The first we knew of your issue, was when you reported it to us upon your departure. Regarding the Owners’ response, in his explanation he was referring to the recovery rate of the hot water heater. And its lag time with 8 adults trying to take showers each of the two mornings. We’re sorry he did not explain that better.We hope that you will return and try a different house from RE/MAX Yosemite Gold.
Great Place to Stay...But
Our family had a great time at this location. The only one thing that we would change if we could would be the condition of the carpets which are filthy. We always had socks on because it looked gross. That's why only two stars for condiiton. Overall, the stay was great !! It is a little bit of drive to Yosemite but once you are there you won't mind. Will look for a cleaner place to stay and will need to ask about the condition before we make another reservation.
Response from RE/MAX Yosemite Gold - 04/21/2011
Spring 2011/The Property Owner had the carpets professionally cleaned.
Great house, but low profile cars a no no.
The cabin is terrific with all the space and essentials you need plus. My only negative, and it is a mild one, is that steep drive ways that flatten out at the bottom and low profile cars don't mix. No damage here, but if you are not careful you will be without some trim. ;-)
Port Angeles, WA
Pine Mountain Lake Cabin
I found the condition of the cabin to be quite worn. Many items such as the blinds for the windows were broken and were being held together by duck tape. The barbeque grill was very dirty and old and the carpeting was much stained and looked dirty. We tried to vacuum the carpeting while we were there but the vacuum m cleaner was broken. The location was good but the owners need to invest some money to bring the place up to standards.
Peace and Quiet
The home was beautiful, as well as the property. I knew my stay was too short at the end of the first day! A little difficult to find, but it also means it is away from it all, if that is what you are looking for. Very comfortable, country life, with deer to see every day. This is where I decided to spend my birthday, and I began to miss the place even before I turned over the keys. The staff were excellent!! Maps ready to direct each and everyone how to get to where you would be staying. Very helpful all the way! We will be going back!
San Francisco, Ca
We enjoyed the home...
We enjoyed the home and location. We had 4 couples staying there, so it would have been helpful to know that the queen bed and bunks were in one room to set expectations. Otherwise, all else was exactly as described and worked well for our purposes of hiking Half Dome and having a place to come back to relax with friends.
East Palo Alto, Ca
Prasad and Kumars Yosemite vacation
This was our first time renting this cabin and we will definetly come back. It was really clean and came with everything we needed. The location is great and really close to a lake. My kids also had a great time.
Nice Quiet Place to Stay!
We enjoyed staying at this home during our honeymoon. It was spacious and quiet. We'd return to it.
El Monte, CA
I am very satisfied with the service and experience at Pine Mountain Lake. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at cabin 02/386 while visiting Yosemite
West Bloomfield, Mi
Robert L.'s review of 02/386 Pine Mountain Lake
The only thing we were dissatisfied with was the glass doorwallonto the deck. It stuck very badly and need repair. Other than that everything was great.
San Fransciso, Ca
Just what we needed!
A group of friends and I stayed at the house and had an AMAZING time! Everything from making the reservation to the actual home what phenomenal. I have to say that the customer service provided by Remax made it all so easy....I had to make some date changes and was consistently greeted with a smile. Thank you for a memorable experience :)
We had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed hearing the flowing creek out back and the croaking of the frogs. Wish we could have extended our stayed!
Mountain View, CA
Adi T.'s review of 02/386 Pine Mountain Lake
Few things will make it even better: sheets and towels provided (we had those before in other rental places), bigger TV, the heating did not work that well - but nothing was a major problem and we had a great time!
San Jose, CA
Doug F.'s review of 02/386 Pine Mountain Lake
There was no information about recycling. We had to carry our stuff and find somewhere to drop it. When the tenant changes, you should change out the sponges as well. Other than that we will most definitely be back. Thank you again.
Memorable & Enjoyed Family Reunion: Every one was satisfied and
We called Tracy at the RE/Max office to tell her we would be late; she said: "No problem, I'll wait for you".
The land line telephone in the house was an extremely important tool for us because there is no cell phone signal in the area. We believe it is also very important to other guests; therefore, it should be the "must check" item for the property management.
I would like to make two recommendations: 1. Even with the map and instructions, we got lost the first time. A physical model or a bigger map of the resort with specially displayed "one-way" gates would help guests not to circle around the resort trying to get back into the resort. 2. We were a little bit confused about the instructions for the heater. On the guest instructions, it says "turn it off when you leave." A note besides the control unit says "set it to 60 degrees." We wanted to turn it off so we won't be charged for not following the instructions. But we set it to 60 degrees because we think the temperature may get below 32 degrees in the night.
The place is beautiful....
The place is beautiful. Everything was readily available (except wireless signal). if you want to get away from it all, this is the place.
The place was beautiful and we love the view of the mountains.
REMAX did an awesome job giving direction to help us find complicating road maps. The idea of getting a combination for after hours of operation was a great idea. We were able to get access with the key and directions to the place. Thank you. (:
Palo Alto, CA
Very nice stay
All of us enjoyed our stay. Pine mountain lake is so convenient to relax, swim kayak and visit around
Great location, very comfortable
We had a great time--enjoyed swimming in the lake, watching deer and other wildlife, and watching movies. It's probably an hour to the center of Yosemite. The only thing that would make it more comfortable would be towels and sheets. Great place!
Palo Alto, CA
We had a great time
The cabin is beautiful, big and fully equipped. The view from the terrace is awesome, too. The carpet is slightly stained, though it is probably very hard to keep it clean in a place like this.
Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better place!
South San Francisco, CA
When we got there,...
When we got there, the garbage can was on its side and there was garbage scattered. The only other thing was that the dishwasher was full of dishes. Overall we enjoyed the property and loved the fact that the lake and pool were at our disposal. Would be nice if checkout would be a little later.
We Had a Great Time
The cabin was just what we needed. We had plenty of open floor space for the kids, the deck area was very private and peaceful, and the rest of the house had all the comforts of home. The nearby swimming beach was uncrowded and convenient. We also liked the main swim area which was a short drive away. A very relaxing weekend!
El Dorado Hills, CA
Christine H.'s review of 02/386 Pine Mountain Lake
The property could just use a few items in the kitchen: large mixing bowl for salads etc., wine glasses and extra forks. Overall it was a great place and we really enjoyed our stay.
Union City, CA
Location was not the...
Location was not the greatest but for the price, it's the best steal. A little unhappy for the fact that we need to bring the garbages to the management office to be thrown away. That's 10 mins each way. Inconvenient. Overall, Location is ok. Property is clean. I would not recommand this property to people going to Yosemite National park... still an hour drive.
Response from RE/MAX Yosemite Gold - 04/15/2009
Hi Patty, Thanks for visiting on Easter Weekend. We sorry for the garbage inconvenience, October to April is our Off Season and the majority of the homes do not have garbage service. If you were to visit May to September that would not be an issue. Yosemite National Park, Big Oak Flat Entrance is 25 miles from Groveland and depending on traffic it can take a bit longer. We hope you will visit us again. Tracy
Sending off 2008 at Creekside Retreat
We had a very enjoyable & comfortable stay. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and in a peaceful/serene setting. We'd love to return in the Summer.
San Francisco, CA
We really enjoyed this...
We really enjoyed this little house. The Pine Mountain Lake complex is lovely. It's a great location close to Yosemite. This house is a little on the older side, there were some small things that were not in good condition (a living room lamp was broken when we got there, there was a small leak in the kitchen faucet), but the bedrooms were large, the bathrooms were clean and the kitchen completely functional. We really enjoyed the terrace and the barbeque. I plan to come back to this rental and would recommend it to friends.
Kiln Green, Berkshire, United Kingdom
The location was great for exploring Yosemite and the Gold Rush towns. My kids enjoyed swimming in the lake. It was priceless to have a deer with fawns approaching the proprerty as we had a bbq on the verandah. The property was spotless and the management was flawless. The isolation brought the stars out at night. A real get-away from-it-all break. Highly recommended.
A nice retreat
Other than having a really difficult time finding our way around the development, we really enjoyed the stay. We didn't like the steep driveway, but the house was lovely.
White House, TN
Well the creek was dried up but the cabin was really nice. Loved the hummingbirds that visited the deck each morning. The cabin has a really nice open flow and the king bed was very comfortable, the queen bed was pretty hard though. Overall we loved the cabin but would probably stay closer to Yosemite next time.
Hawaiian Gardens, Ca
The cabin is beautiful. We had a BLAST!
our trip to pine mountain
My family and I had a blast. We took walks each evening, swam in the community pool, soaked up the rays at the lake and ate ice cream from the snack shack. We played horse shoes and rented paddle boats too. We recommend Groveland as a great family get away close to Yosemite and all its beauty.
San Carlos, CA
We have been to CR 4 times and we just love the feel of the house and the location. My kids love going to the creek to explore. It's quiet and so beautiful. We enjoy eating our meals on the deck and we love playing in the snow on the driveway!! We will keep coming back!
Huntington Beach, CA
We came to this location for a wedding so we did not have a lot of time to enjoy the property but the accomedations were great, We would reccommend this to others.
Park like setting
The home was everything we wanted. Good location in a quiet neighborhood. I recommend this for all groups of 2-6 people.
Re/max gave us the...
Re/max gave us the wrong key initially, so we were locked out for a while waiting for someone to come let us into the house. Other than that, it was a spectacular rental - even more beautiful and spacious than it looks in the pictures!
