Recent Three Rivers reviews

  • Excellent experience

    "I recently (January 2015) spent a weekend at the River Villa to celebrate my 30th birthday with several friends. From the first inquiry to our final exchange, the property manager, Robin, was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I had a couple of last minute cancellations/additions to my guest list that I was worried might complicate the booking process but Robin made the entire process as simple and painless as possible. Once we arrived we saw that she also left a nice welcome note with a home baked loaf of bread which we enjoyed with our dinner the first night. The cabin itself is as advertised: 3 queen bedrooms on the ground floor and the large loft upstairs. The loft was definitely decorated with a kids' space in mind which makes this a perfect family vacation rental, but the large living area and patio/yard works just as well for a group of adults/buddies looking for a getaway. There are large windows on all sides in the living room (as well as double sliding glass doors) which gives the cabin plenty of natural light during the day and a great view of the night sky without having to leave the warmth of the fire. The area just outside the living room is amazing and we ended up spending most of our time at the cabin here. The river is literally right outside with about 30 ft of space filled with seating, bbqs and horseshoes in between it and the sliding doors. The views of the mountains during the day and the countless stars at night kept us coming back outside even when it got colder at night. If you are planning on going into Sequoia National Park I can't imagine you can stay much closer. We made it to the entrance in less than 5 minutes (although it is worth noting that it is still 30 minutes - an hour from the park entrance to all of the big trees/waterfalls/etc). The only caveat I have is that the property was advertised as being on 14 acres which led me to assume it was completely private. There are neighbors adjacent to the cabin as well as across the river that seem to be quite a bit closer than 14 acres. I'm willing to bet that there are indeed 14 acres on the plot of land, but the cabin isn't right in the middle of that 14 acres which is what I had imagined. With all of that said though, the property still provides an ample amount of privacy and private access to the river which I'm sure would be even more exciting in warmer months. All in all, we had a great experience and plan to return hopefully sooner than later."

  • a magical place

    "I am sure most reviewers have covered most of the details so i will try and keep it concise. This property is in a magical, secluded location - full stop. But there is wifi! - I didn't even know this till i got there. And a phone, but little else (no cable so if you want to watch a show, bring your laptop and stream). You will get zero cell ph here but all carriers are represented in town a few miles away (Verizon is just now installing a tower i heard). The house is comfortable for a short stay and while it's certainly not high end at all, you're also not paying high end as you know if you shopped around. I feel the price paid was well worth what we got in return. I think my singular issue was simply the dining room table, which is two fold up tables covered with a large plastic picnic table cover. It's ok, and not that i really cared, but it spoiled the ambiance of what is otherwise a cool 70s decor. Someone could get picky and say the place is outdated but i rather liked it. Some of the fixtures are waaay cool and i know people who would pay money for some of this stuff. Like i said, other than that, no complaints and if he totally fixed the place up then we'd be paying $325 a night so, i am fine on the decor! And then, of course, there's the entire reason we all choose this place - it is sitting on one of THE sweetest spots on the river (of all the rivers that flow through this area). We're actually looking for a property to buy up here so we spent two entire days driving around the area and pretty well covered it all and this spot is practically unique. PS: Best place to eat in town, hands down, is the Ol' Buckaroo. We ate there every meal and it was amazing food and being from LA I've always had a good choice of eateries so u could say ui am spoiled."

  • Perfect Anniversary

    "As parents of 3 kids under 7 years old we rarely have time for ourselves. We wanted to plan a trip for our 10th wedding anniversary that was far enough away from home, but close enough in case of emergencies. This place was perfect! Almost rather not write the review and keep this a secret. We were welcomed, given the tour of the land and treated like family - something so rare. Thank you for the great conversation! They are so welcoming and genuinely excited to share this small area of God's creation rich in local history. Completely surrounded by sights and sounds of nature . . no cars, no people. My wife and I felt like we were completely alone in a land far far away. While my wife isn't much into roughing it in the 'woods', I was in paradise. Spent half a day hiking in the national park seeing the giant trees for the first time. The rest of the time walking the property and especially enjoying the sight and sound of the river that brought back so many childhood memories. Her paradise came after "roughing it" all day with me, coming home to the cottage to a warm bath, relaxing on the deck enjoying the view, napping, then under a blanket keeping warm in the living room taking in a dvd or listening to music without any interruptions. As much as we enjoyed our time alone, we can't wait to be able take our kids for a few days, hopefully making it an annual trip. Thank you James and Kathleen for allowing us to recharge ourselves and our marriage in the Kaweah Cottage. God bless you always! R&D"

  • 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."
