Only minutes from Sequoia National Park and Lake Kaweah is this charming riverside cottage directly on the South Fork Kaweah River. Easy access to Sierra Drive/198 but all you can see and hear is the river. Two bedrooms + loft and two bathrooms with a full kitchen make for a comfortable stay for the whole family!
Is your group just 2-4 people and you don't need the whole house? Enjoy the plentiful living space and full kitchen with one bedroom/bath + loft for a reduced rate and cleaning fee (discounted after booking - please inquire for rates).
This house is warm and spacious with open living and dining space, and lovely shaded grounds to enjoy. A back patio with gazebo offers shade on hot summer days, and a refreshing breeze comes off the river. Two bedrooms with queen beds, plus a loft with a full mattress, and two full baths offers all the comforts a family might need. Both bedrooms and living room have A/C units for personal temperature control.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size electric range and oven, dishwasher, full-size fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. Spices, condiments, and other cooking basics are in the cupboards and fridge, and ample pots and pans are provided. Or, grill outside with the Weber Performance Deluxe charcoal grill w/chimney.
The bedrooms feature brand new queen Leesa mattresses, and the master has a spacious en-suite three-quarter bath. The second bath is in the hall, with a shower, tub and dual sinks.
There is also a sleeping loft with a full-sized Leesa mattress. Please be aware the loft is accessed by ladder, and has a low vaulted ceiling, so use care! See the photos to be sure you're comfortable accessing and using it.
High-speed satellite internet is provided via wifi, and there is a SmartTV with Roku interface so you can access Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, and more, along with a Blu-Ray player.
There are two covered parking spaces in a carport down a gravel driveway. You have full access to the main house and back/side yard. There is a converted garage unit with private yard that is separate and inaccessible.
This is a residential neighborhood on the western side of Three Rivers, a short drive to 198/Sierra Drive, five minutes to Lake Kaweah, five minutes to the main shops of Three Rivers, and ten minutes from the Ash Mountain entrance to Sequoia National Park. There is endless hiking and nature in the area, but also some wonderful restaurants and a grocery store within a five minute drive. Breakfast with coffee, homemade quiche and fresh, baked-from-scratch pastries at Antoinette's Coffee & Goodies, lunch at the award-winning Sierra Subs & Salads, and have dinner along the river at Ol' Buckaroo - Three Rivers is a small town with amazing taste!
Before you book, please consider if accessibility to the loft is a concern for your group. Also, the river is beautiful but can also be dangerous, especially when at its peak and flowing swiftly in the spring/early summer - please keep this in mind, especially if you have small children, who will need to be watched at all times when outside.
Please note NO ANIMALS of any kind are allowed. The property is allergy free due to owner's family being highly allergic to animal hair, dander, feathers and the like. This poses a severe health hazard to host's family members and therefore there are no exceptions to this rule. You will not be allowed to check in, your reservation will be canceled and a $200 deep cleaning fee will be assessed.
Local hosts Richard and/or Jeanie will meet you at check-in to orient you with the house, and provide as much information as you want on Three Rivers and Sequoia! They will be your point of contact during your stay, accessible for whatever you need. Julie lives in Los Angeles and handles all the bookings, and gets up to Three Rivers as often as she can! You may meet her over weekends when she comes to stay at the garage apartment, and is happy to answer any questions you may have during your stay.
