A warm, beautifully appointed home in Pine Mountain Club, California
I've stayed in Pine Mountain Club many times since my wife and I rented a house there in 1993. You might call this a "cabin," but to me it was like being home. Everything was clean, nice bedding and towels, a really nice kitchen, and (as a sound engineer) a surprisingly nice stereo system! I hooked up my laptop computer to the Yamaha receiver, and streamed music AND T.V. stations! The satellite dish worked great; it was advertised as "Internet only," but it was that and more. I'm just getting to the point of "cutting the cable" at home in L.A., and was surprised to find that I could watch NBC news through the cabin's Wifi connection. The DVD player also worked great, for CDs that I brought, and DVDs that I watched... The stove was lit when I got there, and was on the whole time because it was quite nippy at night. But the homeowner also supplied two heaters, of which I used one set at 68 degrees. I was quite comfortable with the stove and one heater, even though it got down to freezing the last night I was there... The kitchen was well appointed with new appliances, and I made my own meals while using the outdoor grill often. A real nice touch was the bathroom heat lamp, which also created a warm glow adding to the ambience... I brought up my golf clubs, but not having played in about 15 years, I was kind of shy about going to the pro shop. But Danny, a PGA pro, gave me tips for free even though I was willing to pay for a lesson! He had me hit some balls at the range, and I surprised myself - it was just like riding a bike, it came back to me so easily... My Verizon cell phone worked just fine, and I kept up with my emails and Facebook. But basically, I just relaxed! The mountains are so inviting; and I must say it was quite humbling to be in nature like I was for my 4-day stay. All in all, just a great place, and a wonderful time.
