  • 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"

  • Encanting Location

    "The location could not be better. The setting is very romantic. The water roars past you with an almost hypnotizing tone. The studio is well equipped, but it needs some tender loving care. Comparing these accommodations to others we have visited in he same price range as this unit; it is overpriced. Three Rivers has two barely acceptable restaurants so don't expect too much in that arena. Getting to the unit and its riverside patio is dangerous. It is very definitively not a place that anyone with a physical handicap should consider. I would not recommend it for anyone over 70; unless you are in very good shape and are very active. The giant grove an d Crystal cave is about 1 hour from the unit; the Grant Grove is about 2 hours away. We enjoyed our stay. I would recommend the place to some of my friends, but not all. It is just too dangerous."

  • Wonderful mountain retreat

    "I stayed here with two others, and we had a wonderful time in the area, enjoyed the bar and breakfast down the st, and enjoyed the incredible trees surrounding us. This place is lovely, and had everything we needed."

  • 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."

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.
