  • Excellent property

    "My husband and I stayed for 3 nights for a visit to Sequoia National Park. This cabin is exactly as pictured. It is spotless, all appliances are brand new, kitchen is so well appointed. This is such a comfortable treat to come home to at the end of a long day. Beds and bedding are comfortable. The owners have thought of everything. They respond very quickly to questions prior to booking, they provide excellent directions to property, they have guidebooks and local restaurants in the area. They provide everything needed including a cooler to use while you visit the parks. We were there alone, but it would definitely be comfortable to have another couple with or a couple of children. Plenty of room. We would definitely visit again. Thanks Sandy and Herb for sharing your beautiful home with us."

  • Could not have been better!

    "My friends and I enjoy getting out and exploring California. That said, this was truly one of the best CA experiences I could imagine, and I would highly recommend staying here. This prefab house (an idea I am now sort of obsessed with) was beautifully simple and I love how the design reminds you of the surrounding landscape at all times. The whole 7 acres is amazing- plenty to explore. Our group rented the 2 tent cabins and they were perfect for us, harkening back to the days of week long summer camp, but close enough to the house to grab a beer out of the fridge. The stars were incredible. Deer wandered past the house all throughout dusk. Red sunset light against the surrounding hills can't be beat. The sound of the river is the perfect backdrop soundtrack. There was ample space for food and the kitchen is well equipped. No TV and no internet were a welcomed respite from the pace of city life. There is a projector and screen to watch DVDs if you so desire. One of our party was able to get a sliver of cell service (AT&T) from one of the tent cabins. This house provided just the right amount of thoughtful, modern comfort (not sure if it was a knockoff or not but LOVED sitting in the lounging Eames chair), but then nature was also so accessible. Slick Rock Recreation area is minutes away, and was the perfect Sunday swim spot. We spent most of Saturday up in Sequoia National Park- an hour or so away. If you stay at this house you absolutely should get up there. Hike the stairs to the top of Morro Rock. Walk around the Crescent Meadow in Giant forest. Go see the Sequoias named "The President" and "The Senate" (they are as impressive as General Sherman but much less people). Spring time was a great time to visit: we got to hike with snow on the ground, and we saw bears! Wildflowers and Pacific Dogwood were blooming and rivers were running with snow melt. Temperatures were mild. Truly, just the best. At this point I'm just going to start repeating myself. This place is thoughtful and perfect on this piece of property and we loved our time there. Sheila, the manager was friendly, easy going, and informative about the space. She is also very knowledgeable about Sequoia National Park, so ask her for suggestions. Owners, if you ever are selling, please let me know! Or if you want to grab a cocktail in LA, I'd love to hear more about the process of building this place! Thank you for renting this place out!"

    "We had a wonderful stay at the River Villa with our Son, Daughter in law, and three small grandchildren. Perfect "get away" cabin. My daughter in law was thrilled to not have to bring the pack and play, highchair or safety gate for our almost walking youngest grand. There was plenty to do with exploring outside and games and books inside. The spacious great room made spreading out so easy.The laundry area was great to have after playing in the park and outside all day. I personally appreciated the extra mirrors in the bedrooms. It made getting ready in the morning so much easier with so many of us staying in the house. Like some of the others reviews have said, it was a short distance to Sequoia National park entrance (can't get any closer without staying in the park!) but quite a drive to the "big trees"... we still enjoyed the park. Our son and daughter in law enjoyed a "date night" at Ol Buckaroo food truck just a short distance in town. They liked it so much we went back for breakfast on our way out the last morning. GREAT food! The property manager, Robin, was fabulous to work with. So quick, efficient and delightful. We LOVED the bread she left for us to enjoy."

Sequoia, Kings Canyon Travel Tips

Year-Round Explorations at Sequoia and Kings Canyon Vacation Rentals

The parks are open all year long to visitors and each season brings its own range of attractions. The vast majority of visitors travel during the summer months of July and August. Be aware if you are planning traveling during peak season that the access roads can sometimes get congested, and the campsites and picnic sites can get very full. This is one of the reasons why staying in a vacation home is a great idea. You can still go exploring and sightseeing by day and in the evening, you can return to your own private cabin. In the spring, the valleys are covered with a mass of colorful wild flowers. The Sequoia trees are sometimes still covered with snow and the rivers are generally swift. Be cautious if going fishing as the currents in the rivers can be very strong.

By June, summer has generally set in with warm sunny days inviting exploration. Enjoy nature trails and guided walks where you can spot birds and other wildlife. Autumn is a great time to visit the parks. Not only are the fall colors magnificent but the park is also generally less crowded. Some of the sites such as the Crystal Cave close in late October so make sure that you travel before then. In the winter months, the region generally receives heavy snowfalls. Some of the campsites remain open and rangers offer guided snowshoe walks through the park. If you enjoy the tranquility of wintertime, this is the season for you to visit.

Visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Cabins

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are two parks that are great to explore with the family. At both parks, you will find information centers where you can arrange guided ranger hikes and attend informative talks and film presentations. There are extensive wildlife viewing opportunities and visitors must be aware of the dangers that larger animals, such as bear, pose. If you are at a picnic site, do not lay the food out in the open as it could attract wild animals. One of the greatest attractions is the General Sherman Tree reported to be the largest single-trunk tree in the world. Nearby is the Giant Forest Museum where you can learn more about the natural habitat of the area. There are also the Crystal Caves which are generally only open during the summer months.

Finding Your Way to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Lodging

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are two adjacent State Parks located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. The parks are within an easy day's drive from Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oakland or San Francisco. Allow for between three to five hours for the drive. There are no buses or train routes to the parks. If traveling from further afield, the nearest airport is the Fresno Yosemite International Airport. From there, you can rent a car and drive the remaining 60 or so miles to the park entrance.
