The Log Getaway has never received less than 5/5 stars on Trip Advisor or Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO)...knock on lots of wood!


My husband, dog and I spent a wonderful weekend at the log cabin celebrating our wedding anniversary. The cabin is beautiful and perfect. It is clean and quite cozy. We brought food and cooked in the kitchen and used the BBQ. The upstairs bed was lavish and comfortable. The cabin is within walking distance to a short creek hike. There is a bar, market, restaurant within 5 minutes drive. This is the perfect spot to unplug and unwind. We definitely plan to go back!

We are pretty picky about our "get-aways" (don't get many) yet this cabin far exceeded our expectations. We happened to be there during a particularly good few days of snow but even without the cabin/location would be great. Although it might be our imaginations but our wine just seemed to taste better surrounded by this artfully beautiful cabin ;) Can't wait to return. Highly recommend.

The cabin offered any and all of the amenities you could want. The breathtaking surroundings made for the perfect place to re-charge. Although we are not naturists per se, we did spend one day visiting the local hiking trails. If you're relaxing as a couple, or taking a small group of friends for fun, I can't think of a better option. We had visited the area previously and taken a day trip to the snow, but this visit was all about loosing ourselves and the cabin served this purpose well. The craftsmanship and detail on the interior wood made the experience that much more special.

I had the pleasure of staying here in December for the holidays. It is such a beautiful cabin. Clean, beautifully decorated & very cozy. It would be a great place for a romantic getaway or a fun retreat for a small family to escape reality for a few days.

Booked the cabin for a couple nights and it was a dream! We'd never been to Pine Mountain Club but I found the place lovelier in person than the pictures. Everything was so well thought out, from the fully stocked kitchen supplies to the laundry soap available for washing your clothes. The cabin felt very safe and it was nice to have a local contact provided by the owner in case we needed anything. The town of Pine Mountain Club is so quaint. The bakery was delicious and there were gorgeous little shops too. There's also a good restaurants in town and our entire stay was bliss. We brought our little dog with us. Love that this cabin is so dog friendly! The fireplace heats the cabin very quickly and they even had a nice DVD collection for us as well. Absolutely coming back to this cabin. I want to move in!

If you are wanting a place that will help you unwind and distress, this is it. Super romantic, quiet and peaceful. You will feel a million miles away when you are only two hours away from LA! This place is meticulously maintained and the owner is awesome to work with! You will not be disappointed with your decision.

Our family of 4, plus our dog, had a wonderful stay at the "Log Cabin" rental in Pine Mountain Club! Russ the owner was pleasure to work with to get the rental arranged, and it is obvious that he put a ton of TLC into building and furnishing the cabin. From the copper sinksto the rock shower, wood carvings, and lovely tile inlays in the kitchen - everything is tastefully created and beautifully executed. It's comfy for a family of 4 or two couples. It's up near the end of a street in a quiet area and you can hike right from the cabin up into the woods to a little waterfall, and we were really pleased to find several good hiking and biking trails around Pine Mountain. We'd been in the winter but found we really liked the area in Summer too. We cooked and barbecued, and the rental had everything we needed. We will return!!
