My wife and I live in Lone Pine and can be over to greet you upon your arrival but prefer to have you come and go as you please. We have set up the property to allow for 24-hour check-in via keypad so if you plan to arrive late, just mind the neighbors.
We seek to keep our interaction with you to a minimum as to preserve your privacy and keep the peaceful serenity that is the Eastern Sierras. We want you to feel as if this is your home away from home!
We will be happy to provide you with maps of the local area, points of interest, suggest dining options, and assist you with your itinerary.
We will be happy to assist you securing transportation to local camp sites such as Horseshoe Meadow, Mt. Whitney Portal, Onion Valley, Manzanar, and Death Valley Visitor Center, and beyond (typically only available during the Spring through Late Summer). Please keep in mind that there is typically a fee for transportation paid directly to the driver, usually between $5-20 per person depending on the destination and specifics requested by the party.
My wife and I live in town and all issues regarding the function of the home that cannot be resolved via text and telephone can be addressed in person within 20-30 minutes.
Please be accepting of our text messages during your stay. We may reach out to you prior to visiting the property, if there is any immediate information of importance such as road closures, hazardous weather, or imminent fire hazards.

We now provide internet and wifi! There is also free internet on Main St. at every coffee shop, store, and bar. Laundry and car washing facilities are located near Main St. (Less than 1/4 mile away). We generally receive great cell phone and phone internet service from most major carriers. NOTE: Virgin mobile seems to be non-functional in the Eastern Sierras.
Pet Policy: You MUST disclose that you are being a pet so we may make proper arrangements with our cleaners. A pet cleaning fee $20 billed to you at the end of your stay to cover the cost of defuring the property, $40 if you do not disclose.
Accepted Pets: We love ALL pets! Our northern neighbor has 2 adult labs that generally keep inside "Xena & Bosco" so please mind them.
We welcome your cat or dogs to stay with you inside and out. Please do not wash your pet in the shower or sinks, use the garden hose outside (drains will clog with pet hair). Pet owners are asked to keep after their pet's waste and clean up messes in and out.
-There is a refundable security deposit (handled by Airbnb) of $100 should your pet create damages you cannot/do not clean up or repair (scratching up the paint on the doors, chewing furniture, digging up plants).
We will NOT claim a portion of the security deposit simply because you bring a pet. Rover will have to have been really really bad for us to claim... Just let us know you will have a pet with you so we can clean appropriately.
Note: Airbnb will not charge or hold your credit card for the deposit amount, you simply agree to cover any damages up to this amount using the method of payment charged at booking, and expect a $20 cleaning charge requested after your stay.
There is a pet-sitter in town who will watch, walk, feed your pet throughout the day while you adventure into the wilderness. Contact us if interested and we will initiate contact for you!

***The Eastern Sierra is a very beautiful place met with extreme terrain all around. We do not control the weather nor road closures so we ask that you please stay on top of the road conditions along your route prior to your stay. We simply can not offer refunds because the route you planned is actually only open during the summer months and closed due to 7 feet of snow in the winter. If you have any questions about your route or planning alternative routes, especially through Mammoth, Yosemite, or Death Valley, we will be happy to assist you.***
Robert and Kim
I'm a California native raised in Los Angeles who has found peace and serenity in the Eastern Sierras. I met my wife Kim through similar outdoor interests and I have to thank her for bringing me to this beautiful section of California.
Most of my travels have been focused on California and Nevada, so I envy all the passing travelers on their way to the next out of state destination. I'm a big fan of the game of Hockey, the theater, and discovering "hole in the wall" eateries. I know a little bit about wine and beer and homebrew at the competitive level.
My favorite books currently deal with non-fiction/technical data, historical collection cookbooks, and some sci-fi/fantasy thrown in for good measure.
My wife and I are offering our cottage where we spent our first 4 years together. In 2014, our family expanded with the birth of boy-girl twins and overnight grew out of our home. We moved only 10 minutes away and stayed within the Lone Pine city limits. Because the listing we offer is an entire house, we want to provide you with as much privacy as possible make make you feel as if this is your home away from home. We are always available via phone or text should you need something, but after an introduction and a home walk through, we will let you be to enjoy your home as if you had rooted yourself in the Eastern Sierras. If as a guest you require a bit more guidance to local points of interest or assistance with a situation unforeseen, we will be more than happy to help in any way that we can.
