Book our cabin and change your life. It changes ours, every time we’re here.
Expect to lose the tension in your shoulders, and gain a sense of calm and well being. It’s the gentle sound of wind moving through pine trees, rocking on the front porch with a view of the San Emigdio Mountains, or the pleasure of sinking into a deep leather chair with a book in your lap and your dog at your feet. All this and more comes with the experience of renting our Pine Mountain Adventure Club. 

Fully equipped kitchen. Free wifi and smart TV with Netflix and Amazon, but our rocking chairs on the porch and the backyard hammock are even better. 

Pine Mountain Adventure Club is a private homeowner's association inside a national forest, just 90 minutes from Los Angeles. Perfect for a romantic escape, a three-day hiking weekend with friends, a vacation with family, or even the chance to take your remote job to a space where your coworkers are woodpeckers and chipmunks. A cozy modern-lodge getaway with a large fenced backyard, you can take in beautiful views from the front porch and rear deck, stargaze from a hammock, or relax in our living room with a 20-foot ceiling, surrounded by books and blankets. Whether you're looking for a romantic escape or a centerpiece for family adventures, welcome to the club. 

Our cabin's decor is rustic, and everything is more than comfortable. 

- Living room with fireplace and shamelessly comfy leather furnishings 

- Pottery Barn couch, Natuzzi recliner, Crate and Barrel club chair 

 - Glass-paneled barrister bookshelves filled with thoughtful and eclectic reading material ranging from “Leaves of Grass” to Mad Magazine, with a bunch of bestsellers, classics, and random finds in between.

 While you’re staying, it's your place to use. You can reach us via text, phone, or email, and we have resident hosts who live nearby. We'll supply their numbers with the check-in information. 

Please note: 

- The home sleeps up to 6 people. However, before booking please take into consideration that this is a cozy cabin of just under 950 square feet. (We do consider children under 2 years old in the headcount.) For comfort and suitability of amenities, the maximums for each guest type are as follows:

Adults/teens (over 12) - 4 max
Children (3-12) - 2 max
Infant (0-2) - 1 max
Dogs (any size) - 1 max

If you'd like to bring more than our maximum in any category, we require that you contact us to discuss before booking.

- Pets are welcome and we love dogs. However, if you have more than one dog, that would need to be discussed prior to booking and extra fees may apply.  

- We are in a national forest, which requires being aware of wildlife. This can include deer, bears, bobcats, foxes, spiders, and even scorpions. 

 - No food left outside, or in your car, ever. This can attract bears. 

 - No open fires outdoors allowed anywhere on Pine Mountain. 

 - Leave Club passes on the kitchen counter. There is a $35 fee per lost pass. 

 - Early check in and check out are sometimes available by request, depending on bookings and the cleaning schedules.
