Enjoy the cooler mountain summer in a cabin cozy enough to spend time alone, spacious enough for a family of six. Great writers retreat above a tranquil town in Los Padres Nat. Forest. Get away from the hustle & bustle to re-energize. Enjoy the Clubhouse pool & stargazing from my deck during summer, the changing colors during fall. Winter brings snow & curling up by a fire while flowers & wildlife return in spring. Beds made, towels ready. Check our rates for a 3-night midweek stay.

The space

A small bridge leads to the lower deck and entrance. High, pine ceilings in the living room, plenty of windows, sliding doors to the outside. There is a wood burning stove while a modern Mini-split system keeps the house warm or cool. Each bedroom has an electric wall heater for those cold winter nights. Small, well equipped kitchen. First floor bedroom w/double bed, bunk bed and full bathroom. Upstairs bedroom has a queen bed, it's own bathroom and access to the front deck. This 1375 sqft gem on a quiet cul-de-sac at an altitude of 6000 feet is the place to come to relax and reenergize. On the grounds surrounding the house you will find a picnic table, gas barbecue and a tucked away meditation bench. Unfold the deck chairs; Pine Mountain is known for its sunny days, clean air and clear night skies. Bring your binoculars. Check "The best Night-Sky events of 2017" to blend in with professional stargazers on Mt Pinos. During the day you can hike to Mt. Pinos or Mt. Able or take one of the close-by easy trails. Coming home you'll find WiFi and two TVs. Their is a landline in case you don't have Verizon. The small town with some restaurants, a pizzeria, a bakery that makes the best bear claws and a market is 2 miles away. The swimming pool is open until the end of October. Go for a swim just before sunset to see the mountains turn red. Shower off and get a cocktail at the clubhouse next to the pool. Bedding, towels and basics like toilet paper and cooking essentials are at the house. We love to be at the cabin and hope you will have a great experience sharing it with us.

Guest access

Community access in town: Seasonal Pool. Clubhouse w/ bar, restaurant & bistro. Have breakfast on the golf course or go on a Saturday night for live music and a small town experience.

-Outside fires are not allowed and result in high fines. Barbecuing and smoking are permitted on the decks but be careful you're in the forest.
-Bear season is here. Please, don't leave food outside or in your car and burn the barbecue clean after use. Our town doesn't have garbage pick-up service. At the end of your stay please drop off all garbage at our quaint recycling center (8.30-5 daily) or take it home with you. Trash left at the cabin attracts bear break-ins with costly damage. Left behind garbage is an extra $15 fee.
-There are security gates on the deck but outlets, stairs etc. are not child proofed. There is an outside security camera.
-Pets are okay when arrangements are made BEFORE booking. A $35 per pet fee will apply. The cabin is professionally cleaned before guest arrival but is not fit for people with pet allergies.
-The rest is common sense: clean what you use (dishes), leave it like you find it. Basic cooking staples are there for you to use. The top drawer of the stove is a build-in Microwave. Use the touch buttons to operate. Walk-in closet has an earthquake emergency & 1st aid kit, spare snowchains & wheel traction boards.
-Cleaning fee does not include doing your dishes, gathering your bottles etc. throughout the house and off the grounds. Fee will apply.
-Please provide all names of guests staying at the cabin. When bringing last moment, extra people let me know before arrival. After 4 guests a $15 per person per night fee will apply. I'm flexible in accommodating up to six guests.
-Sound/music carries far in the valley, please respect the neighbors.
-Film-shoots need a permit from the HOA. Different rates apply.
-Host is not liable for accidents in and around the house, slips on an icy deck, lost or stolen property or natural events. Always check weather/road conditions before arrival. Snow chains may be required.
-Guest passes are provided to access the clubhouse etc. The swimming pool opens May 26. A $25 fee will be deducted from your deposit when lost. Print from your itinerary the "House Manual" for door code, WiFi info, house phone number (only Verizon works in town). It answers many practical questions about local emergency numbers, location of water shutoff, breakers and water-heater.
-Early check-in/late check-out may be available for an extra fee.
-WiFi at the cabin: We only have small providers, don't expect big city connections. It may be slow & short interruptions are part of mountain life. Reset the router, be patience, most of the time it all works smoothly. In case of a longer interruption try our Internet Cafe at BaseCamp (9-5), same provider, other circuit and great sandwiches. Remember we are in the wilderness surrounded by mountains, forest, wildlife and clear skies. Things may be different than at home. Enjoy your stay.

Me, my husband and cat had a great time here. Location The location is nearby a small town with restaurants, grocery stores etc. we did not use the guest passes for the pine mountain club but we did take a short drive to some beautiful hiking spots! To be honest we found the location so nice and quiet we just didn’t want to go anywhere else. Space The house is spacious, it has heating and a lovely outside area. The upstairs patio area is so peaceful and is gorgeous during the night with all the stars. There are mosquitos so make sure you are covered or use repellent. Amenities There is a tv in all rooms. You can watch Netflix in the living room, there is a fire place and heating. WiFi worked for us just fine! Clean towels and bedding is provided and there are plenty of utensils in the kitchen to cook dinner. Host The host is great, she always answered any concerns or questions really quickly and was so nice and accommodating. If you want to just take a step back and enjoy nature and have an evening under the stars then this is the place for you! It’s a truly amazing experience. We hope to go back some day.

We absolutely loved our stay at Henni's cabin. It's beautiful, clean, and has all the amenities needed. It's in a very woodsy & quiet area so it really feels like you are getting away from it all, and there's a small town nearby to grab last minute things if needed. We fully enjoyed our stay and would love to be back!

Henni's cabin was spectacular! I especially loved the drive there, it was scenic & a breath of fresh air being away from the crowded city life. It was just me and my little family of 5 & my pup. Super dog friendly ! House was really nice with AMAZING views. The place was fully fully equipped & there was pretty much everything needed incase you have forgotten to pack a few things. My 3 little boys loved the place they asked if we can live there lol. Everyone was asking about the place on my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) & (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) videos ! I will definitely visit again in the future! Thanks for everything Henni!

What a beautiful space! Our children are all getting older so family vacations get trickier every year but we all really enjoyed our time together in this warm and welcoming cabin! I enjoyed yoga on the back most side of the deck every morning and smiled every time I woke up to that beautiful view outside of those big windows. The kitchen had most everything we could possibly need that made it a breeze to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. The showers were well stocked with toiletries and plenty of towels. The setting was beautiful and quiet. The selection of board games was a pleasant surprise and really took us back (we ended up having a few family game nights and had a blast)! The community pool was easy to get to and the staff welcoming and inviting. The hikes in the area were easily found and not difficult to navigate thanks to well thought out instructions from the host. We did bring our dog but the neighbors dogs seemed to take exception to him so if we did return we would leave Max at home with a sitter. Thank you again for such a great stay and SUPERB communication! Would recommend!
