Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon reviews

  • Best Vacation home

    "My family of 9 was a little nervous about staying in a vacation home, I did a lot of research and heard horrible horror stories about vacation homes, I booked a lodge and received an automated email the next day advertising this home, I looked at the pictures, and l immediately was in love. When I called and spoke to Dennis, I was sold, he was so up front and open, unlike all of the other owners I spoke to. I called and cancelled my lodge and booked with Dennis. My whole family loved this home/ location so much it was truly hard to leave. Dennis thank you for the vacation of our lives, we will definitely return."

  • Family Vacation

    "Great fit for a large group... everyone had plenty of room! Kings Canyon was about 30/45 min drive up the windy road. .. but we all had a great time! We think the grills on the big bbq need a lil upgrade... old with a few holes on the grills and a few rooms need new mattress but the lil things did not stop us from having a great time! Far Away from the grocery so make sure you bring plenty of food! Everything was clean and in good condition! Thank you for having us! And thank you Melinda for all your help!"

  • Christmas in the Glass House

    "We had a great time spending Christmas in the Three Rivers Glass House - the incredible location gave us such a sense of peace and quiet and just the right frame for disconnecting from the world for a few days, and re-connecting as a family. The lot is absolutely terrific, and much larger than we had expected - one day we just stayed in and had enough to explore and photograph right there. We were a bit uneasy about having no window coverings, but it was a marvelous experience waking up to the panorama of nature at dusk, with the first birds hopping about and the hill sides being touched by the first sun light. The only drawback was that there is a large house on the opposite river bank - it's quite far from the glass house, but at night it had all lights on, all night, with a particularly bright entrance light that was shining straight across at eye level for the person sleeping on the right side in the master bedroom - there was no uninterrupted sleep to be had under such illumination, and we unfortunately had nothing to cover the lower corner of the room with to block out this annoying light. But aside from that everything else was just perfect for us. We particularly enjoyed the heated floor, what bliss to get up on a cold morning and be warm and cozy in the house. We enjoyed a lot of wildlife, right there from the house - rabbits and birds, hawks and even a large owl in the tree right by the house; two deer one morning, and on Christmas Eve a red fox casually walked by and looked in on us in frank curiosity! The next morning the lot was visited by a larger group of feral pigs and their youngs - this was a total surprise for us, as we did not know they live in these parts! It was quite a thrill, though it gave our small dog the fright of her life, not having expected pigs on her morning rounds. Overall we pretty much felt like "paradise found" and plan to return."

  • Beautiful

    "I read all of the reviews after I booked the cabin and was very pleased. There is nothing like getting away from it all. We had four adults (two seniors) and my husband and I took the porch. The evenings were cool and comfortable. I would wake up in the middle of the night and I was surrounded by stars. I want to move in... Vincent and Maya were there when we arrived. Provided a bowl full of oranges for juice and a tremendous short cut to Kings Canyon. This is a place I will definitely visit again."

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.
