Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon reviews

  • a magical place

    "I am sure most reviewers have covered most of the details so i will try and keep it concise. This property is in a magical, secluded location - full stop. But there is wifi! - I didn't even know this till i got there. And a phone, but little else (no cable so if you want to watch a show, bring your laptop and stream). You will get zero cell ph here but all carriers are represented in town a few miles away (Verizon is just now installing a tower i heard). The house is comfortable for a short stay and while it's certainly not high end at all, you're also not paying high end as you know if you shopped around. I feel the price paid was well worth what we got in return. I think my singular issue was simply the dining room table, which is two fold up tables covered with a large plastic picnic table cover. It's ok, and not that i really cared, but it spoiled the ambiance of what is otherwise a cool 70s decor. Someone could get picky and say the place is outdated but i rather liked it. Some of the fixtures are waaay cool and i know people who would pay money for some of this stuff. Like i said, other than that, no complaints and if he totally fixed the place up then we'd be paying $325 a night so, i am fine on the decor! And then, of course, there's the entire reason we all choose this place - it is sitting on one of THE sweetest spots on the river (of all the rivers that flow through this area). We're actually looking for a property to buy up here so we spent two entire days driving around the area and pretty well covered it all and this spot is practically unique. PS: Best place to eat in town, hands down, is the Ol' Buckaroo. We ate there every meal and it was amazing food and being from LA I've always had a good choice of eateries so u could say ui am spoiled."

  • So relaxing!

    "It was a three night trip for just my husband and I and we enjoyed this beautiful home and everything it offered. We spent hours on the back patio and along the river. It was so peaceful and private. Our special moments were shared with ducks and quail that frequent the backyard. Our stay was so wonderful we ended up sleeping in both mornings. What a way to rejuvenate! The added touch was the owner, Laura left us a basket with goodies and a bottle of wine along with a handwritten note. You can really tell she cares about her guests. We will be back!! - Angel K."

  • A Perfect Lark

    "Well south of the crowds yet surrounded by plenty of trails, Sequoias, and wildlife Ann & John have a rather perfect little patch of Sierra that they are more than willing and capable of sharing with you. The cabin itself is more than cozy with a wood burning stove, windows all around, and yes, that commercial grade kitchen that everyone raves about really is worth raving about. Situated within a stone's throw to the main (also cool) house/shop it's close enough to be convenient should you need anything, but far enough away for privacy. The kitchen is stocked with all the hardware you'll need to cook, but be sure to bring your own ingredients. The property itself is perfect for ornithologists both amateur and pro with ravens, jays, eagles, etc... constantly in sight. Most importantly, there are your hosts, Ann & John. This ain't their first rodeo and it shows. They're sweet, open, funny, helpful, mindful people who are quick with a story and local information and happy to leave you be. We visited in early spring during the drought and so had no snow cover and thus no problems with our smaller, city car. Looking forward to our return trip."

  • 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!"

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
