"We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights stay at this beautiful house with a fantastic view of Morro Rock; very short distance from entrance to Sequoia NP. The house has very comfortable furnishings, spacious bedrooms and multilevel deck by the river ( which I loved it !!). Owner is great to work with; provided us with very useful information about this area. We enjoyed hiking in Giant Forest, Crescent Meadow, watching sunset from Morro Rock and visiting Crystal Caves. We will definitely recommend this house to family and friends!"Guest: Marta G. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 8, 2014View listing
"Great location. You can't get closer to Sequoia Natl. Park. Spacious house with excellent beds and a very nice living and dining room. Liked the sliding doors out onto the porch from every room. Kitchen is a little funky with drawers that threaten to fall out. Water pressure is a little iffy, as is hot water. And the TVs are fairly difficult to operate in spite of the directions."Guest: Joanna Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 24, 2014View listing
"We stayed here (4 families) over the Labor Day weekend. The cabin is about 14 miles up the mountain. really in the wilderness. There is a lake in front of the cabin. It does have all the amenities (No Internet). Word of caution, anything besides Verizon would not work up here or in the national parks. If you are going with the large group and different cars then its worth having a radio for communication. Unless everyone has Verizon. The cabin is really close to Kings Canyon entrance on hwy 180. Dry Creek rd goes to CA-245 which gets to hwy 180. Only 30 minutes from Cabin. The cabin has 4 bedrooms, 3 full bedrooms with bunk beds and 1 room with all bunk beds, since this is a christian camp. The only issue the bunk beds room has is no door to close on one end. However since we really came to the Cabin at night time to sleep we did not care. But the bunk beds are very uncomfortable, I suggest bring some kind of padding. Kitchen has everything, the electric stove is hard to use, the way it manages temperature is by constantly turning on and off. So if you want to boil water it takes for ever. Coffee maker did not work. Over all a very good experience and great stay. If you want to see Sequoia NP, then its better to go down to CA-198 and then get to the park entrance. Otherwise you have to take the junction from Kings Canyon to go to Sequoia and it would take long, these are connected parks. In my opinion Kings canyon is a much better national park with a lot more things to see then Sequoia. I do recommend going to Lake Hume, very very nice lake, and there is a restaurant there. The lake is really really beautiful."Guest: kkamalx Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 11, 2014View listing
"Beautiful home in the mountains, as exactly as described. Make sure you take the time to watch out the window of the blue bedroom. There is a bird bath that the rabbits will come down to visit. We enjoyed watching the larger rabbit with the spot out of his left ear. Lots of birds to watch. Stars are amazing if you enjoy the night star! We saw a few falling stars. Easy access to both parks. Make sure you stop for groceries before arriving at the property."Guest: Angie K. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 14, 2014View listing
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.
