  • Weekend Birthday getaway

    "This place was fantastic! We were a total of 11 people and we had tons of space! The kitchen was great for cooking for so many people. The grounds was very picturesque, there was a nice loop around the lake for walking. There was a large area to play football and frisbee outside. My dog had tons of space to run around outdoors. The living room was ideal for board games and movie watching. They even had a speaker system inside - just bring an aux jack to connect your device! Overall, we had a wonderful weekend and would highly recommend staying here."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect place for a getaway

    "My Fiance and I stayed in the studio of the Davidgil house as bday vacation for me. We had the best time, and I will never forget the peace and serenity I felt there. We woke up and had our coffee by the river every morning, and ending our evenings with a campfire and listening to music all weekend long. Greg and Lona were the most gracious hosts, and we felt a bond with them right away. If all goes well I plan to go back and have a small wedding at the property, its just THAT GORGEOUS!"

  • 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"

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.
