Round House

The Round House

At the top of a long driveway, sitting high on a hillside, you’ll find the Round House.  This home is private, above all the homes around it.   It is located at the most westerly part of Pine Mountain Club and back’s up to the Los Padres National Forest.

This executive quality home’s architecture is uniquely beautiful.  The center point of the home is the Great room, an amazing rotunda like room with stunning north easterly views.   Custom lighting helps set the ambience for the stunning wood ceiling.  Whether you’re sitting at the kitchen table or the couch the views out the big windows are stunning.

With these open views, be sure to get up early enough to enjoy the  morning light, it’s something special in Pine Mountain Club.   Different from other communities, Pine Mountain Club has darkenss guidelines and one thing you can expect, it’s dark.  Once it’s dark, turn off the lights, sit on the deck, close your eyes for a few minutes, then take in the sky.   When it’s clear, you’ll see the Milky Way.

The Great Room is truly the perfect place to spend time together.   Maybe you play the piano or maybe fancy trying to play, there is an electronic keyboard.  If bird watching or exploring the surrounding terrain is your gig, you’ll find binoculars to help you.

Certainly someone has to do the cooking.  This fully stocked kitchen is naturally part of the great room, making it easy for the cook to interact and share their best meals.  There is a large dining table that will seat 6 to 8 people comfortably.   If you’re thinking BBQ and steaks, you’ll find that BBQ just outside the door.

Sometimes it’s nice to escape to a long luxurious bath.  Other times, just an opportunity to relax those muscle after a long hike.  The master bedroom has a tub that is large enough for two and the 2nd bathroom has a Jacuzzi style standard tub.

Rare among Pine Mountain Vacation properties, we allow one small dog under 25 pounds. Must be house and  crate trained, and  if you plan to leave it for a while crating your dog is the safest thing to do.  If your dog is like ours, they just want to hike and explore as much as you do.

This is a digital escape home, there is no internet or cable TV.  There is a collection of DVD’s or bring your own.   There are lots of family games, an alternative to xBox.

There is ample parking and an easy turn-around sized parking lot.

  1. This is a warm, clean, comfortable and nicely laid out house! The gorgeous high ceiling over the great room gives the house a really good feel and I love the view out front and the open forest space out back. Great for our small dog. Driveway was no problem. I would just check if the dishwasher’s been fixed, if you absolutely need one. Carolyn is an awesome host.

  2. Serene hilltop cabin with amazing views! So quiet and peaceful! The jetted tub was a perfect way to end the night after all that hiking! The views in the morning with the sun coming up over the mountains was breathtaking! Carolyn was so sweet letting us stay on such short notice. Even left a nice anniversary card for us. This was the perfect way to end our trip. Thanks again Carolyn!

  3. The Round House is a beautiful, comfortable, and cozy home. We loved the round living room/kitchen, with its open layout, natural light, and incredible mountain views. It was the perfect setting for our writers’ group to take a break from technology, catch up with friends, and get some work done. We also had a lot of fun with the magnetic poetry. The zip line was too small for us, but kids or shorter adults will get a kick out of it. Carolyn was a wonderful host. She responded quickly to our questions, and even offered to come meet us when we took a wrong turn and couldn’t find the house. I highly recommend staying here or at another of this host’s properties!

  4. It’s a perfect spot for a quick get away from La city. We enjoyed the snow with our friends and our toddler. The view is gorgeous.

  5. This place is amazing. Slightly up on a hill puts you above the neighbors and gives you a great view. The house itself has a huge open space in the living room/kitchen. The bathtubs have jets and the beds were comfortable. As for the rules people seem to be bothered by.. they aren’t bad. Just leave the place how you found it. Simple. And the trash, you drive 5 minutes to a small nice town and throw it in a compactor. There’s bears, you can’t have trash outside. It’s just all part of the experience living out in the forest. We will definitely be revisiting The Round House in the future. And Carolyn was awesome. Quick responses! Thank you!!!

  6. The Round House is a warm, cozy and inviting home with beautiful views. The house is very clean and well stocked. We enjoyed the fireplace since we came in the winter, but the house has really good central heating too. Carolyn responded to our questions quickly and made sure we were comfortable. I definitely recommend staying here, we would love to come back again.

  7. Carolyn was an awesome host. The location was great! The home was modern and very spacious. The view was also amazing and we even got to see a bit of snow fall on our last day there. There was snow all around us and it wasn’t far from Mt. Pinos. She was quick to respond to any concerns and very attentive to our needs. She gave us a list of recommendations and tips that were very helpful to us. We had an issue come up and she was quick to resolve it. We would definitely stay here again. The driveway into the home is a steep hill. If you come around the winter time the slippery ice on the hill can prevent some cars from going up the driveway. One thing I would recommend if your car isn’t 4×4 then you should bring a shovel, salt and kitty litter to try to make the drive up a bit easier

  8. Wonderful house in the mountains. It is a beautiful place set in the mountains north of LA. We visited in the winter and the heat in the house was perfect, though when you first turn it on it heats the bedrooms really really well. Lovely floor, nice furniture, plenty of pots and pans. We loved out stay. The only small note is that you have dispose of your trash at a station about 10 minutes away, so make sure you leave yourself time! I would highly recommend!

  9. Great place to enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Enjoy nature, Enjoy some great time cooking, baking and just relaxing and seeing the beautiful views!
    Absolutely a great experience! Glad we did this for Christmas! Great accommodations. Great location. Friendly and helpful neighbors. Beautiful community! Snow on Christmas morning an absolute plus!

  10. Beautiful & unique house; everything we needed was provided including a welcome book for guests with a lot of info of things to do around town. Carolyn was great & quick to respond to all messages. We had a really great time!

  11. “This was a cozy cabin. Very comfortable, warm and clean with beautiful views. Was the perfect setting for Thanksgiving!”

  12. “Pictures don’t do this place justice. The home is warm, inviting, and spacious, and the views are breathtaking. I spent Thanksgiving there with 4 other people plus my dog and we had no issues at all. Carolyn was very prompt with all communication and gave a clear heads up on what to expect. We had all the amenities we needed and have zero complaints. Will recommend to friends and hope to visit again!”
