Three Rivers house description

The Country Villa is nestled in the heart of Three Rivers’ oldest neighborhood, Alta Acres...less than 10 minutes to the entrance of Sequoia National Park, and only a couple of minutes from the friendly busyness of a small town whose location draws visitors from all over the world.

Stepping into this charming woodsy home will feel like you’ve stepped back into your childhood. The Country Villa’s beauty lies in its rustic simplicity. Right away you feel at home, comfortable, and relieved to be away from the hustle and bustle of regular life. Being at the Country Villa forces you to slow down, to patiently wait for the quail and wild turkeys when they use your yard as their stage, or to whisper…”Look over there” to your kids when a skittish group of deer try sneaking past the deck and freeze like yard ornaments when they see you. The Country Villa’s location offers both proximity to shopping and restaurants, and living on the literal edge of nature itself.

Twelve guests can comfortably sleep in the Country Villa’s 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom is unique, and often creates a little competition as to who can locate and choose their favorite first! The kids’ room boasts a bunk bed with a double, twin, and secret trundle. The closet houses a treasure of toys to entertain the little ones. The Plate room has a queen bed and a 1940’s style built-in wardrobe. The Den room is huge, includes 2 queen beds, a flat screen TV, and has a real woodsy atmosphere. The Master bedroom opens to the larger bathroom and huge walk-in closet.

Knotty pine ceilings throughout much of the home provide the feel of a cabin. In the mornings, the dining table is awash in sunlight – the perfect spot for coffee. In the afternoon, soft light filters into the living room through clerestory windows. On chilly nights, the generous sized hearth in front of the wood burning fireplace provides a wonderful place to gather. The fully equipped kitchen cozies up to a counter with seating and shares the same view as the dining area. The pantry is large enough to accommodate as much food as you can bring! Outside on the extensive wooden deck you’ll find lots of seating and both a gas BBQ and a charcoal grill. Shaded by native blue oaks and cooled by overhead ceiling fans, the bi-level deck is the perfect place to enjoy the early evening. A horseshoe pit, conveniently located just off the deck, provides entertainment for those who still have energy after spending the day hiking in the park.

Country Villa guests are only a few minutes’ walk to the river. Or if the river is too high, or too low, guests are welcome to use the pool located at the owner’s lodge property, just outside of the park’s entrance.

If you’re looking for a vacation rental that will enhance your family’s precious time together, the Country Villa won’t disappoint. The home’s owners (two brothers) grew up in this house 30 years ago. They moved away to pursue professional careers, naively thinking that life might be better outside of Three Rivers. One brother has since returned fully intent on re-creating for his children the experience of growing up in a town where everyone knows your name and waves when they pass you on the road. There is something special and magical about our childhood homes that we all wish we could re-visit. Our desire is that the Country Villa will be instrumental in stirring those nostalgic feelings of a simpler time… a time to relax, reconnect, and refresh.

                      About the owner: The Country Villa has been owned by our family since 1973 and was extensively renovated a few years ago. The extensive windows in the living room, dining room and kitchen allow lots of light and give the home a very warm, open and inviting feeling.

                      Why the Owner Chose Three Rivers:
                      The Country Villa is comfortable for large families or groups of people and is a perfect home base to explore Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Seeing the tiny baby quails following their mother around every spring and summer is priceless.
