Great place to stay during your trip to Yosemite!
Our family loved our stay in Pine Bluff. Highly recommended! Pool was great, very refreshing and great to come back to after a day of hiking in Yosemite. Pool water temp was a bit cool - 78 degrees, which was very refreshing and enjoyed by myself and the kids (a little cold for my wife though). The AC was perfect because the temp was high 90's while we were there. There are not any AC vents in the upstairs master, so the room was rather hot during the day into early evening, but it cooled off during the night. There were a couple great fans that we used that really helped move the air around. Plenty of space, with a lot of beds and rooms. Kitchen had everything we needed. Outdoor pool space/area is great for hanging out, grilling, eating / playing games at the big picnic table. We would definitely stay here again.Scott P.

Relaxing location for Yosemite
The house was in a great location for our group of five adults to rest and refresh after a day in Yosemite. I don't know that we can add anything much to the other reviews. The house was perfect for our needs, and descriptions were spot-on. We drove in from Calaveras Big Trees State Park after seeing the Giant Sequoias. We went there because Mariposa Grove in Yosemite was closed, and I really wanted to see the big trees. It was a beautiful drive from Big Trees to Pine Bluff. You might benefit from knowing that Yosemite is a huge park. Based on Chuck's advice, we tried to leave early each morning (by 8 AM) to avoid lines of traffic into the park. On days we did this, we got to Yosemite Village in about an hour from the house. It took nearly two hours to get from Glacier Point back to the house. It's about 15 minutes to Pioneer Market in Mariposa for groceries. The drives are beautiful in any case, and we enjoyed the driving experience and scenery. FYI: the Tuesday after Memorial Day we left the house at 8:40. By the time we reached Arch Rock, portable signs alerted us that Yosemite Village Parking was full. So, we opted to do Glacier Point, Taft Trail, and Sentinel Point Trail that day. It was a bit crowded, but not a problem. Trekking poles are VERY helpful for Sentinel Point Trail. :)Emmett M.

Start your vacation relaxation at PineBluff House, a gorgeous custom home offering privacy and a black pebble tech pool. Only 25 miles from Yosemite, PineBluff offers visitors excellent access to one of America's greatest treasures. At the same time, the private pool with fenced in patio will relax and entertain your group if you need a rest day. Or have it all, visit Yosemite in the morning, and return to Pine Bluff for some afternoon and evening swim time next to the BBQ.
PineBluff House is ideally suited for families, but larger groups of adults will have so much fun they might think they brought someone's kids along. The house has been in our family for 23 years, and we cherished every moment; we are now excited for you to come and enjoy the peacefulness of PineBluff House and the grandeur of Yosemite.

As beautiful as the PineBluff House is on the inside, the true gem of this property is the pebble tech patio surrounding a gorgeous black pebble tech in ground pool. With steps and then depths ranging from 3 1/2 feet to 7 1/2 feet, this pool can breathe life back into even the most weary of travelers. With it's black bottom, the sun's heat is easily transferred to the water extending the swimming season on both ends of a traditional pool season. Several chez-lounge chairs and other deck chairs are available for your basking pleasure. Large umbrellas allow you to choose shade or sun. Covered outdoor dining for 10 can be accommodated pool side to enjoy your favorite BBQ prepared on our Weber gas grill. There are outdoor speakers by the pool. Also on the patio is a solar lit 6 sided table for when it is just too nice to go inside at the end of the day.
There is ample free parking on site.
The PineBluff House is tastefully decorated with natural themed photographs and paintings, many by some of our renowned local artists and neighbors. We truly love the PineBluff House and think you will too.
