"Came up from the L.A. area for a 3-night stay with our 8 year old twins to get away from the city and enjoy the river. We had never been before. Lynne was fantastic to deal with, easy communication and very friendly and accommodating. Her cabin is in a spectacular spot, right on the river and just a short walk to the very kid-friendly swimming area, Bubbles Beach. The pictures of the yard and deck really do not do them justice - it is just so relaxing and shady, and pretty private back there, even with neighbors right on either side. She has a nice, clean gas BBQ grill and comfortable deck chairs and a large patio table with chairs to enjoy dining outdoors.
Her cabin shows her love for the area and nature, and is lovingly furnished and kept very clean. Pretty much anything you could need while there (dishes, cookware, linens, etc.) is provided and in top shape. The swamp cooler worked really well during the hot summer afternoons. We enjoyed barbecuing and sitting out on the deck. The starry nights were mesmerizing, and for our city kids, a real treat. Our little family really connected and had some great conversations on that deck - it's just sort of magical. The river, while obviously really low right now, was just perfect and beautiful. We enjoyed seeing all sorts of critters in and along the river.
Riverkern is in a great area, with convenient access to Trail of 100 Giants (amazing!), and just a few minute drive to all the shops and restaurants in the charming town of Kernville. The folks at the Riverkern General Store, literally a two minute walk from the cabin, were very friendly. Beyond food, the general store sells everything you could need but might have forgotten (tubes, river shoes, life vests, hats, food, fishing tackle, etc.).
We cannot wait to come back!! Thank you, Lynne!!"
