Property description

Our family cabin is located in the Alta Sierra Community within the Sequoia National Forest. Come spend some time relaxing in the middle of the woods, watching squirrels and jays hoping from tree to tree, or enjoy the outdoor adventure the local area offers. Mountain living doesn't get any better than this!

Our family cabin comfortably sleeps 10 people-all on real beds. The cozy upstairs loft has three twin beds, with views of the forest.

This room has a full size bed and two twins within the open floor plan. The kitchen is equipped with everything you should need including a cozy eating area, with a larger table for dining in the living room. The deck off of the kitchen has a table and chairs.

Why Alta Sierra:
After the sale of a fishing ranch on the Owen's River our family had been visiting for generations, we needed to find a new area close enough from home where our family and friends could visit and be close to the outdoor activities we love. We needed an area with access to fly fishing, and country to explore by jeep. Preferably a place with access to snow for the kids. We thought Big Bear or Arrowhead would be ideal, but didn't want to hassle with the traffic and crowds of that area. We also heard that the Kernville or Lake Isabella area might be a possibility because of it's proximity to the Kern River for rafting and fishing, and the Sequoia National Forest for exploring. We drove out for the day to check out Kernville area and stumbled upon the Alta Sierra Community after spotting the ski symbol on the map. We immediately fell in love with the area! It not only was 20 degrees cooler than down the hill in Kernville and Lake Isabella , but it was actually in the forest. Who would've guessed an area like this still existed! We decided almost immediately that this area was for us. Far enough from home to feel like a vacation, but close enough to come up for a weekend. Relaxing, but plenty of outdoor adventure if we were up for it. Fly fishing on the Kern or it's numerous tributaries, Whitewater rafting on the Kern, jet skiing, boating or just relaxing on a Lake Isabella beach. Numerous off road jeep, ATV, and dirt bike trails. Snowmobiling on those same trails in the winter, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, sledding, and great family skiing and snow boarding at the Alta Sierra Ski Resort and Terrain Park located just a couple of miles away. Close access to restaurants, antique stores, and boutiques in historic Kernville, and even a public golf course within 10 miles. from the cabin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
RELAXING, Quietness of the forest, especially under cover of snow, wildlife, trees, hiking, playing in the snow, making snow angels and snowmen, sledding, so'mores, a cocktail, beer or wine and great food at the Greenhorn Grill. ADVENTURE, whitewater rafting, fishing, boating, Jeep & ATV trails, Tubing, Skiing & snowboarding for the family, exploring the National Sequoia Forest.
