About the area

Our association is PMCPOA. Most folks travel the 'grapevine' and aren't even aware of this special place! Pine Mountain Club is a quaint Alpine community located within the Chumash Wilderness in the Los Padres National Forest. This private community is located in Kern County, California near the Los Angeles County line, not far from the "Grapevine"and Mt. Pino's. The area surrounding the community is popular with visitors from all over and is a great place to have a quiet, relaxing vacation in a natural setting and to participate in a wide range of outdoor activities. Mountains and forest areas such as the Los Padres National Forest create an area that is suitable for activities such as camping, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, horseback riding, bird watching, nature viewing and sightseeing. Nearby area offers golf and other activities and there are a number of things to see and do all over the region including museums, parks and landmarks. Mt. Pino's is a short drive from our home! Exploring this pristine natural environment is an adventure in itself and while many people choose to venture out on their own, there are a number of tour guides and outdoor outfitters in the region who offer a variety of tours and excursions including sightseeing tours. After a long day of exploring and participating in a wide range of outdoor adventure, visitors love that they can retreat back to our lovely mountain home and relax on the deck or near the fireplace and wind down in the peaceful and natural surroundings all around them. Pine Mountain Club also plays host to the Mountain Shakespeare Festival, as well as a number of festivals and cultural events throughout the year. Come enjoy what is said to be 'one of California's best kept secrets'! SUNSET VIEW at Pine Mountain Club! Hiking, star-gazing, wildlife viewing! And incredible sunsets! Winter SNOW! There are a number of events throughout the year, including Lilac Festival (May), Wine in the Pines (June), Antique Car Show (August), Hoe Down (September) as well as the Concerts on the Greens series throughout the summer.

“A treasure in the mountains!”

Reviewed 4 Feb 2017

I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Sunset View! What a great place to celebrate my birthday with my two sons and our dogs! Lori, the owner was so accommodating and welcoming from the get-go. It truly felt like we were not just merely renting a place in the mountains, it was more like Lori and Tim were sharing their home with us. This is definitely not your typical mountain cabin, the decor and cleanliness surpass the typical rental by far, and the heated mattress pads and down comforters were such an added delight. It was so nice to unplug, relax and leave the hustle and bustle behind. The views out of every window were amazing and the night sky was absolutely breath-taking. It was great to just go out back into the yard to sled and play in the snow. Feeding peanuts, which were left by Lori, to the bluejays was another unexpected joy. Early morning walks with our dogs up and down the hills in the neighborhood were a treat. Should you require anything you might have forgotten to pack, a walk down to the nearby village to the bakery or market will fit the bill. My goal for this trip was to create memories with my boys that we could all go back and revisit for years to come, and I have to say that mission was most definitely accomplished, ie, on our last morning my youngest said, "thanks Mom for this trip, I'm never going to forget this place." This trip exceeded my expectations and I am already looking forward to going back again next January. Thanks again, Lori and Tim, for sharing your lovely mountain home with us!

Owner's reply: Ana Maria - thank you for your lovely review! It warms our heart to share our home with folks like you who simply wish to enjoy the view, stargaze, and, yes, make special memories. And, as you know, our home backs to protected forest - when there's snow, our backyard is a private winter wonderland; so happy that you were able to enjoy a snowy stay! You are always welcome - do come back! God bless!

“Peaceful Getaway”

Reviewed 20 May 2016

My wife and I recently stayed here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. From the beginning, when I first inquired about the property, Lori was a pleasure to deal with. Very thoughtful and helpful, and super responsive. When we arrived we were so excited to unwind and relax at the cabin. We were not disappointed .We really enjoyed the deck, where we made fast friends with the local birds. My wife loved feeding them peanuts which Lori provided in the freezer. I grilled on both days and it was just magical to listen to the serene quiet sounds of mother nature. We were able to truly relax and forget about work and city life. I found that we had all the conveniences of home in the comfy cabin, including cable TV. Also there's a nice market and bakery right down the street. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We can't wait to come back and visit again!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your review, Sven. Pine Mountain Club is said to be 'one of Southern California's best-kept secrets'... and so convenient to LA. You're always welcome!
