About Becky

Carl purchased this property back in '05 because he loved the area and the fact that it was only a 2.5 hr. escape from home! We became a couple 9 years ago, lol, actually met online! Our first weekend get-away was to this area, precisely 20 miles up the hill to one of our three vacation rental cabins at Alta Sierra. There's snow up there at times! Whether you choose to stay in charming Kernville or up in the mountains we know you'll have an amazing time! At least that's our wish for you!

Becky purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Becky chose Kernville

We love the old hometown feel that Kernville provides. The community is small, charming, close to the river, Lake Isabella, the Sequoias, wilderness etc. It's a get retreat not far from our Central Coast home! foodies and a couple that enjoys a good glass of wine or craft beer on occasion there's some great places to imbibe!

What makes this bungalow unique

Just a short walk to the Kern River rafting companies, the Kern River and historic downtown Kernville. Cozy cottages for your party of 4 all the way up to 24!

Comfortable Rental with Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

This rental is in a great location convenient to town. The rooms provided ample space for our family and a kitchen which allowed us to not have to eat out every meal. I would rent it again and recommend it to others.

Great budget- and family-friendly centrally located rental!!

  • 4 of 5

Would definitely come back to this complex, and would recommend to our friends. It would be fun to come back and rent the bigger one with another/extended family.

Everything was clean and in great working order (especially the air conditioning!). Very good location - 2 min walk from town center (coffee, bars, gift shops, museum), 5 min walk to the river front, 10 min walk to Kern River Brew Co and super market.
