                                A truly magical place! This is like no motel I have ever stayed at before. The rooms are very pleasant, clean and comfortable. There are also several other buildings available for guests to use for meetings etc.The ample grounds contain beautiful hikes, meadows and picnicking places, with mountain views. The manager is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful and hard-working people I have ever met! I got married here and it could not have worked out any better. She tirelessly worked with me on arranging all the details beforehand and then ran around for several days during the big affair making sure everyone had what they needed - we were so lucky to have her helping us! I am eternally grateful. It's been several months since we held out wedding there, and because it's a five-hour drive for us, we haven't been back yet. But oh how I look forward to returning! Whether it will be in winter, when the snow lines the paths and makes the manzanita-covered walkways so striking, or in spring when the wildflowers and lilac shrubs bloom, or at any other time, I know it will be a visit filled with beauty and joy.

                                The staff is very friendly. The place along with the staff create an excellent atmosphere for vacation to groups as well as families. It is very well located close to Kings Canyon and Sequoia. It es secure and confortable. It is quiet and private, it may be perfect for couples in honey moon.

                                What a special gem of a retreat center! This is my first time here at Seven Circles and every moment of the past four days has been amazing. The accommodations are stellar, the private wash rooms are a luxury that put this retreat center in a class of its own, the nature, grounds are beautiful and majestic, the Yurt is spectacular, and the meals are heavenly. Laura our host and chef, is a sweetie pie to experience everyday! I highly recommend this retreat center if you want a 5-Star, memorable experience.

Thank you for this amazing stay and thank you for this incredible food. P.S Warning : The Indian food is so good it takes super human power not to eat to much.
