Dunlap house description

Built in 2005, this charming home is located on 15 acres in the Dunlap foothills, amongst a beautiful oak woodland. Skylights in the kitchen and living room give you a bright, cheerful atmosphere. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a soothing, romantic rose and green garden décor. The second bedroom, the Woodland room, has a full bed, and the third bedroom, the Bluebird room, has a full bed.

Linens and towels are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped. The picture windows in the living room, frame a vista view of the Central Valley cities, the coastal mountains at sunset and a breathtaking sight at night, of the stars and Milky Way with the city lights twinkling below. On the fourth of July, we watch the fireworks from afar, in over 5 different cities! This is the place to sit and bring your binoculars or telescope, to view the night stars.

In your front yard, a picnic table with umbrella gives you a vista view for breakfast. Along the side of the house there is a shade shelter with a large picnic table and a charcoal barbeque under the oaks, redbuds and elderberries overlooking the deer trail.

Roads and trails meander amongst the 15 acres, revealing lovely, shady spots with granite boulders, to sit upon, in restful contemplation. A horseshoe pit and lasso golf game area has been added just below the home.

Foothill bird watching offers a host of different species not found in the city, these include California quail, turkey vultures, red-tail hawks, acorn woodpeckers and various towhees, are just a few of the daily visitors. Deer and rabbits usually stop by to nibble the flowers.

Located 15 minutes away are the Twins restaurant and in the town of Squaw Valley: Hummingbird Breakfast Deli, Bear Mountain Pizza, two small mini food marts; two gas stations, a library, feed store, hardware store, and car repair garage. Squaw Valley hosts a variety of small, country events such as a Mule Show in May, Garden Tours in the summer, a rodeo in May and various other festivals such as the Turkey Testicle festival and a Crafts and Art Fair in October. The Endangered Cat Haven, housing and breeding endangered wild cats, and Rosemary’s Herb Garden, offer unusual tours in this unique foothill habitat. We're also 8 miles from St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Ranch

Located 30 minutes away for water lovers, Pine Flat Dam with water-skiing, fishing, boating and swimming is a refreshing stop. We have even enjoyed sailing on the lake in our small 19 feet O’Day sailboat.

Avocado Lake, near Pine Flat, is a small lake, perfect for children to wade in and practice their swimming. The Kings River flows in this same area and offers more fishing holes and picnicking along its banks. Spend the afternoon golfing at the Sherwood Forest Golf Club. There are wine tasting tours and a fruit trail along the Blossom Trail as well.

Located 30 minutes away is Kings Canyon National Park, (URL link provided below) breathtaking in its views of the great Continental Divide and many of the oldest redwoods in California, including the largest living tree, General Sherman. . Our rental fees are 50 percent less than staying in the hotels there, so you can enjoy the park and then come to your own comfortable home in the foothills. Special December event: December 10th; the Nation's Christmas Tree Service: email us for details. (Cross-country skiing in the winter)

Located 45 minutes to 60 minutes away is Sequoia National Forest, the other half of our Kings Canyon Park. In the summer, you can travel up through Kings Canyon Park, into Sequoia National Park. In the winter you have to go around through Visalia and Three Rivers, to reach the Sequoia Park.

Cities nearby include Visalia, Fresno, and Tulare, all with their own special spots and events to explore. We will fill you in on those special restaurants, antique shops, a great zoo, parks and many other fun events in these cities.

It is our pleasure to offer this unique foothill experience for you. We love and care about this area and look forward to providing a restful, memorable vacation. Come and see for yourself why this area is so dear to us.
