Lake of the Pines offers a beautifully maintained 18 hole golf course that meanders around the Community. The Course is a challenging course that can make a better golfer out of anyone. It’s a Championship Golf Course with 6140 yards. It’s a lovely course with creeks, some bunkers and water hazards, and has views of the lake from various fairways.

The Lake

Lake of the Pines boasts 3 lakes! There are 7 parks, 6 beaches, a boat launch ramp, and a marina with 148 boat slips, not to mention many other gorgeous common areas. The beaches have barbeques and playground equipment, and even kayak lockers!


Lake of the Pines offers plenty to do and experience! The Lake, Swimming Pool, and Golf Course are just the beginning! There are also Tennis Courts, The Sports Lounge, Clubhouse, Beaches, Parks, Pickleball and basketball court and Bocci ball is very popular!


This beautiful community is located 6 miles out of Auburn, CA, just off Hwy 49 on the way to Grass Valley and Nevada City.  It’s 1 hour from downtown Sacramento and 1 hour to an International Airport in Sacramento.

While exploring the FAMOUS GOLD COUNTRY and the historical towns of Auburn, Grass Valley & Nevada City, a tour of Lake of the Pines is a must to include.




The lake has 5.5 miles of shoreline and the boating activities include water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing and fishing. OH, DID WE SAY FISHING??? Yes, it’s one of the most well known and popular lakes for BASS fishing in Northern California and some very reputable Bass fishermen live in Lake of the Pines just because of the Bass fishing. Not into Bass fishing? You can fish for Crappie and Bluegill and Perch to your heart’s content. There are some huge Catfish, and new to the lake, trout!

The lake warms up fast enough for people to start swimming about mid April and still can enjoy swimming through September and early October depending on the weather that season. Each year is a little different. Our June – mid August lake temperature averages about 77 degrees to 82 degrees. 


Enjoy golfing on the private 18 hole course.  Tennis anyone?  There are 4 tennis courts & a very active Tennis Club.  There is also Pickleball, a form of tennis, but with lighter balls & a smaller court.  There is a very active Bocce Ball Club that has over 500 players in it.

Schools near Lake of the Pines

Our schools are rated very high in the State and there are 4 schools just outside the gate of LOP, which includes a well known Christian School – Forest Lake School.


There are 1997 parcels with approximately 90% built on. Many homes have had complete makeovers, while others retain their original design and charm. There are ongoing modifications year after year. All homes are “custom built” with a variety of styles and designs. They range from small vacation type homes to beautiful, large homes. Most of the parcel sizes range from 1/4 acre to 1/3 acres in size, but, there are many that range from 1/2 acres to 2 acres and larger, Home prices are affordable ranging from $300,000 to $2,00,000 (subject to change with market conditions).

I have been selling in the general area since 1978 and I have had the pleasure of selling hundreds of properties in LOP, some even 3 and 4 times over.

When it came time to look at homes in the foothills I didn’t know where to start but a friend of mine introduced me to Dianne, who he described as an “expert” in the area. He was absolutely spot on! Dianne Williams is a phenomenal agent, who knows the entire Auburn area extremely well and especially the Lake of the Pines community. Dianne helped my wife and I through the entire process, and was not only extremely flexible, showing us home on the weekend, but also providing very valuable experience and insight into what to look for in homes in the area. She took the time to learn about what we were really looking for in a vacation home, one that really fit our needs and tastes, and ultimately we found the perfect home for us. It was a complicated purchase with the lot split and Dianne really helped us navigate everything efficiently, never once giving us any pressure, and really looking out for our interests. I would not hesitate to recommend Dianne if you’re looking for an honest and trustworthy agent that is a true expert in the region.

Alex and Lil Mei

Absolutely one the best real estate agents we have ever worked with. If it wasn’t for her, there would have been no chance of getting our forever home. She will always go the extra mile. She is now not just our agent, but truly part of our family. We cannot recommend her highly enough!
