Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As a TV producer, I helped launch “America’s Most Wanted” and executive-produced “Strange Universe” in daily syndication (which is how my nickname “Mars” came to stick). By the turn of the 21st century, I knew a lot about life and work in the fast lane of Los Angeles... and I was burned out. I longed for a life close to Nature. No more Starbucks. No more parking meters. No more 405 Freeway. I headed north, to the land of Big Trees, Big Water, Big Starry Night Skies. Here, in California’s Central Valley, I found a sanctuary suitable for restoring my Spirit — and sharing with others who also might long for a taste of pristine Nature — for a weekend, a week, or longer.
 Years later, there’s still nothing like the inspiring sound and sight of the water thundering over Rio’s gigantic river rocks, awakening the consciousness of anyone lucky enough to stand on this river bank and witness a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle of Nature that will never come again. Thus Rio’s motto: “We Are the River.”

Why the Owner Chose Three Rivers:
Rio Sierra Riverhouse is a guesthouse situated on the banks of the Kaweah River, just 6 miles from the gate to Sequoia National Park. People make pilgrimages here from all over the world. To my astonishment, in my first season at Rio, more than half my guests were citizens of other countries. They came to witness the biggest living things on the planet: the giant sequoia trees. Our tiny village of Three Rivers, California, is the gateway community to the sequoias, the place most visitors lodge during their exploration of Sequoia National Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
Sequoia National Park is one of the more peaceful of America’s National Parks, not so crowded or commercial as Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, but still full of wondrous discoveries. As the seasons turn, visitors come here to hike, fish, bike, cross-country ski, bird-watch, and explore the Crystal Cave. Of all these adventures, for me, one stands as unique. I call this 'Seeing the Bear,' an almost mystical pursuit by so many visitors, who hope for, or maybe fear, a close encounter with these huge, wild creatures that make their home among the sequoias. At any moment, a bear might appear in the midst of tourists on the park’s mountainside. Like the sequoias themselves, the bears present almost fantastical living proof that giants really do exist in the world.
