Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon reviews

  • Great Weekend Get Away

    "The location was private and allowed for relaxation. The house was exactly as described and we enjoyed the pool, spa and a movie under the stars. The owner was easy to work with especially considering the last minute rental. She was very hospitable. I will be back to rent again."

  • Thanksgiving weekend

    "We really enjoyed this house which we found very clean with lots of toilet paper and trash bags. We felt at home from the very first moment. The house is very cozy with nice furniture, most of the utensils needed to cook a nice meal for a big group, and lots of wood for the fireplace. We cooked a barbecue using firewood in the outside grill. The land, full of trees is very inviting to walk around, especially at night to see the stars. The big beds have comfortable mattresses, but the bunk beds don't. Taking showers required some planning in order to have hot water for everybody as we were 20 people. I would definitely go back."

  • Mountain Cabin In Ponderosa

    "We just came back from our short vacation in Sequoia National Monument. Stayed in Ponderosa Cabin, and are very happy with our decision. Cabin location was great, backed by very serene and peaceful forest. If you want to relax and forget about every day stress from work and city life, you can do that here. Owners where very helpful and provided every information about the cabin and surrounding activities. We had a great time in Ponderosa Cabin."

  • Amazing Thanksgiving in Three Rivers!

    "Our group of five just returned from the long Thanksgiving weekend in Three Rivers, and can't wait to go back! The house was even better than depicted. We arrived to the dining table set and decorated for the day, including a bottle of wine and a note from the owner. We were in awe of the amazing view, and immediately headed outside to peruse the grounds. There are adorable little paths to, and around, large boulders that flank the river. Our favorite thing to do was to sip coffee on the lower deck and watch the river. There aren't really nearby properties in sight, so it felt so secluded and peaceful. The kitchen was stocked with all of the necessities, including some Pumpkin Spiced coffee for the season. The bedrooms were comfortable, and the showers were nice and hot, which was much needed after long days of hiking in the chilly mountains. Even the futon was very comfortable to sleep on, and our guest who slept there felt like he had a room to himself with a view of the stars at night. The location was also perfect, as it was a short drive to the park entrance, and convenient to the small markets in town, and a little wine tasting room. Derek, the property manager, was also very helpful and friendly. We were so sad to leave this wonderful home, and hope to visit again soon!"

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
