Living in Pine Mountain Club

For many, life in the mountains is pure heaven on earth.  For others the lifestyle is not cared for given the challenges of living outside of the big city.

Recently, I spoke with a PMC resident about the pros and cons of life in the forest.  Among the most common complaints is the lack of first class dining options.  Although the country club has seen great improvements over the years, it can sometimes lack the variety and quality found in big city restaurants.  That is changing.

Winter Driving in Pine Mountain Club

The roads in Pine Mountain Club and surrounding areas can get quite icy during the winter. According to the experts, the best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all, if you can avoid it. Don’t go out until the snow plows and sanding trucks have had a chance to do their work, and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination. If you must drive in snowy conditions, make sure your car is prepared and that you know how to handle road conditions. It’s helpful to practice winter driving techniques in a snowy, open parking lot, so you’re familiar with how your car handles. Consult your owner’s manual for tips specific to your vehicle.  PMC does a pretty good job of keeping snow off the local roads but ice is always a problem.  All Pine Mountain Club residents know that when winter arrives it is best to avoid driving at night and after any rain.

Pine Mountain Club, A Mountain Community Close To Everything!

Pine Mountain Club is indeed a Wonderful Place to live.  The community offers 24 hour security patrol to keep out the riffraff, community swimming pool, mountain air, golf, camping, hiking and a local community vibe that no longer exists in Los Angeles or Bakersfield.

What makes Pine Mountain Club different from any other community?  It is a private homeowner association that strictly regulated the look and feel of the homes and disallows conduct which is not conducive to a peaceful, beautiful, tranquil living environment.  The schools are top notch and the area is patrolled 24 hours a day by private security.  Anyone looking for a home to rent in Pine Mountain should visit the area and spend the day at the country club, play a round of golf at the local course and enjoy a hike in the local mountains.

Homes for rent in this area are affordable compared to Los Angeles yet the commute is an hour to Santa Clarita or Ventura.

The community was originally used to ranch cattle, in fact some early photos of PMC show cattle grazing in the area which is now the golf course.  The community was developed and lots were sold starting in the 1970’s.

There are two primary ways into the community.  One is from Interstate 5, the other is the “back road” that comes from Ventura, Ojai and the central coast.  Shopping is somewhat limited, as intended.  There is a small food market and liquor store in downtown Pine Mountain Club but larger supermarkets can be found in Frazier Park.  There is a gas station, post office and numerous small shops, churches and restaurants.

What should one be aware of if considering renting a home in Pine Mountain Club area?  First, you should be familiar with your credit score.  Owners will scrutinise a prospective tenant’s track record in paying bills on time.  Second, a deposit of typically twice the monthly rent will be required.  Lastly, if pets are in a he family household, be sure the property will accept them prior to applying.
