Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon reviews

  • Great experience

    "My family and I had a wonderful time at the property. It is equipt with everything you need and a great front porch that is perfect for barbeques. Despite the pleasent rain we got during our second day, we were still able to eat outside thanks to the roof covering the porch. There is a small river area right next to the cabin where my family and even our dog enjoyed to splash in as well. Although Lynn wasn't around during our stay, she was super helpful during the renting process and kept me updated as to any questions I had before the stay. I would definitely recommend this beautiful property to anyone!"

  • Wondeful home, Wonderful hosts!

    "My family and I stayed with Lona and Greg in late August for four nights. This home is beautiful and warm. Lona has put her heart and soul into creating a magical space. She has an incredible eye for detail and beauty. Although we were disappointed that the river running through their back yard had dried up due to severe drought conditions, this did not hamper our stay. There are plenty of great watering holes and beautiful spots to get your feet wet close to the home. The highlight of our stay was when we were asked to stay for dinner with our hosts and their friends visiting from Hawaii. A beautiful paella and other delicious foods. Wonderful hosts and a beautiful home."

  • Just simply AMAZING!

    "Absolutely beautiful! Secluded, private, and the studio is very cozy and nice! Perfect place for a romantic get-away! The owners have put so much thought down to the little details that it just makes this place the perfect place to get away. Studio is very clean and has everything you need. It's a perfect star gazing place as well. At night go out and sit on the chairs and watch shooting stars and the Milky Way Galaxy. At dusk the bats come and feed off any bugs on the water. Really cool to see!! The perfect, most upscale place to stay if you want to go into Sequoia, since it's right at the base. I just couldn't get over how beautiful it was. We spent one day up in Sequoia but couldn't wait to get back to our own little paradise! Do yourself a favor and book this place, guaranteed you will not regret it!"

  • Breathtaking Views in Three Rivers California

    "We had a great visit in Three Rivers at the Sequoia Alta Vista. The trek up to the house is well worth the effort, with fantastic views in all directions. Robin left us cookies and a fresh loaf of bread! The house is very well equipped and very clean. At night the stars are bright. The giant sequoias in the National Park are really something to see - be sure to visit the "Nation's Christmas Tree". Lots of great things to see in the area - with every kind of crop and orchard and vineyard in the central valley."

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
