This private, owner occupied home with a 1500 sq. ft. guest area sits right on the banks of the Kern River. You will have a PRIVATE DOWNSTAIRS GUEST SUITE, ACCESSED THROUGH OWNERS FRONT ENTRY, with two bedrooms and a large living area opening directly onto the deck, with river/beach access for swimming, tubing, rafting & kayaking, when river conditions permit. HOWEVER: The Kern river can be dangerous, particularly in times of high flow, and access to the beach & river from our deck is over rocky & uneven ground. Guests who choose to utilize these amenities do so at their own risk and must sign a LIABILITY WAVER. We make no assurances of safety. If guests do choose to go into the river, mid to late summer is usually the best time for leisurely swimming and tubing, when the water flows are lower. In times of high flows, it is a perfect launch or take-out spot for experienced rafters and kayakers. Again, any activity on a wild, whitewater river can be dangerous and guest must assume responsibility for the safety of themselves and those in their charge. Parents or responsible adults must supervise any minors when they are utilizing the beach, river or hot tub.
Enjoy the beach and river during the day, and campfires and smores in the evenings after a fun day on the river and/or a fine, romantic dinner on the deck, provided by one of several local restaurants.
Large deck, hot tub, riverfront beach, family room with streaming TV, HiFi & WiFi, wet bar, refrigerator. All downstairs. Owners live upstairs.

Other things to note
There are 3 cats on the premises but they stay out of sight, upstairs. Smoking allowed outdoors, on the deck, in the yard and by the river. Guests are responsible for their own safety concerning use of the river.
