Quiet, Peaceful Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the farm. Bettina met us when we arrived and showed us around. Its a quiet place in the country and perfect to relax. It makes a great basecamp for exploring Sequoia National Park, conveniently located just outside the entrance. Its a charming house with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Would definitely come back again.

Fantasy Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family has stayed here, and we lovingly call this place The Farmhouse. The kids run around exploring, bonding with the animals, being creative in nature, and we soak in all the beauty of the environment with cocktails in hand, swinging at the edge of the pond or lounging in the myriad spots of comfort set up around the property. I gotta tell you, this is the kind of place that makes you reevaluate where you live and how you spend your time. It reconnects you with nature and therefore yourself, and Bettina is a perfect hostess. She feels like an old friend.

The house itself is spacious, bringing the outdoors in. It has a very European feel with musical instruments all around, antique furniture, and interesting art (some of it Bettina's!) everywhere you look. Rustic, clean, and super comfy beds. The outdoor bathtub is something I encourage you tp indulge in. I collected herbs and rose petals for my bath and was just about as happy as could be.

And oh my, Bettina grows some incredible herbs and spices. There was a jar of pink peppercorns in the kitchen for our use that taught me things about flavor. Farm to table isn't just a catch phrase here. You can walk out into the garden, pick some greens, and bring them inside to cook. The power of doing that alone makes this place very special.

We will come every year at a minimum. The national park is very close, just a hop, skip, and a jump down the road but I'll tell you that every moment spent away from this property feels like a missed opportunity. I love it here and encourage you to treat yourself to a weekend (or month!) of true escape from all the constructs of your modern life. It's probably the most powerful thing you could do for your family's health.

Unique home in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Three Rivers. Bettina was a gracious host, leaving oranges and cookies out for our arrival and bringing us a fresh egg everyday for my son, but otherwise very discrete. The house is very cool, with a spacious yet cozy upstairs "great room" and kitchen, and a large master and two additional bedrooms downstairs. Perfect for a family with kids and lots to check out around the property including a fishing pond. About 15 minutes to the entrance to Sequoia National Park.

Three trip's to Bee Green Farm in 6 months...

  • 5 of 5

...says something. Bettina's farm is just one of our favorite places to stay. Great for kids, in a beautiful location that is beyond relaxing, with a host who is as kind as she is generous. Definitely recommend for anyone thinking of traveling to Three Rivers.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot close to the park with a nice country feel. I stayed with my sister and retired parents for five days and then ended up staying on alone for another couple of nights to accommodate a business trip. I was definitely not in a hurry to leave! It has a really peaceful, calm feel to the place. Logistics to the parks is as good as you can get, barring actually staying in the park, so you're guaranteed to have lots of curvy road driving. This is a universal truth of national parks after all!

Bettina was a gracious hostess and she did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. The wifi was strong, which was good since I spent some time working remotely. One morning at around 10am while tapping away on my keyboard I looked up to see a very healthy looking bobcat cruise through the woods just behind the house. And seeing quail come through the yard a couple times was a treat.

Great Stay In August 2016

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at the farm house. Bettina was an excellent host. She was very good with our 5 and 8 year old boys and gave us good tips about Sequoia National Park and Three Rivers. Thanks to her advice, we saw a black bear in the park. The property has a great view of Moro Rock. The kids really enjoyed feeding the animals.

There were no pictures of the bathrooms, which made me a little nervous, but they were clean and well maintained like the rest of the house. There is a Weber grill in the yard available for use. Bettina was nice enough to give us a couple farm fresh eggs and a jar of her apricot preserves.
