Our historic fishing cabin, built in 1952 is located on the banks of the Kern River in the residential neighborhood of Riverkern. It is situated on 1/2 acre of riverfront property with a large deck, and grassy, shaded yard. It's a peaceful escape, located in the diverse ecosystem of the Kern River Valley. We are located 3 miles up the river from the main town of Kernville.
From the property, you are about 50 yards from the river and are surrounded by sounds of rushing water. By walking out the back yard, you can easily access the river and a short nature trail that leads to Bubbles Beach, a big eddy with a sandy beach.
Our cabin is old fashioned and rustic. We lovingly restored it 15 years ago, and enjoy sharing it with considerate people who appreciate a simple, yet comfortable setting. The ambiance is complimented by antique furnishings and artwork of the Sierra.
In winter, the cabin is heated by wood stove, and a swamp cooler keeps you comfortable in the summer. The kitchen has a gas stove, coffee maker, toaster, and basic condiments. There is no TV, microwave or dishwasher, but we do have wireless internet.
The town of Kernville, located three miles down the road, is a recreational center with outfitters for rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and fly fishing. It has a small town atmosphere with restaurants, antique stores, a historic museum, and riverside park. This amazing area is the gateway to the Sequoia National Forest, home of the Needles climbing area and the Forks of the Kern.

About the owner: Lynne lives in South Pasadena and journeys often to Kernville to climb, kayak, ski and mountain bike.
Why the Owner Chose Kernville, CA, USA:
Lynne has been kayaking Kernville since 1990 and loves the river environment and the community. Fifteen years ago, she was fortunate to find this little cabin for sale on the banks of the Kern. It was in terrible shape, but all it needed was some tender loving care. It's now restored and we love sharing it with others.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The river sounds wonderful and the views of mountains are stunning. It's easy to swim and kayak right from the back door. We love being outside on the trails, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, and climbing, or making the short trip to town to explore antique stores and see friends at the Brew Pub!
