  • Family Vacation

    "Great fit for a large group... everyone had plenty of room! Kings Canyon was about 30/45 min drive up the windy road. .. but we all had a great time! We think the grills on the big bbq need a lil upgrade... old with a few holes on the grills and a few rooms need new mattress but the lil things did not stop us from having a great time! Far Away from the grocery so make sure you bring plenty of food! Everything was clean and in good condition! Thank you for having us! And thank you Melinda for all your help!"

    "The Davidgil house is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stay in a work of art. The home is immaculate and absolutely beautiful. The amount of detail put into the home is mesmerizing and my husband and I would wonder around the house for hours marveling over the artistic detail of the home which the owners built themselves. The property itself is equally gorgeous and my family loved spending time in the huge yard and dangling our feet in the pristine river running through the property. The home had everything one could want or need in a vacation home and the owners are the nicest and most down to earth people. They made us feel right at home. If you want a peaceful retreat this is the spot to be."

  • Great rental!

    "My young daughter and I had a great experience while at this cabin. It was spacious, comfortable, and cozy. It had everything we needed to stay comfortable! The location was also perfect, and even the backyard and surrounding areas offered beautiful views, nice walks/hikes, including a swing. My daughter and I had a wonderful week of quiet time together and enjoyed evening walks to the nearby lodge for happy hour. I would 100% recommend this rental for any family!"

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
