Beautiful mountain cabin in the town of Camp Nelson, California. Located in Giant Sequoia National Monument, a short walk to the Tule River, the Camp Nelson store, and the local bar and diner. Many beautiful hiking trails in the area through Giant Sequoia groves and other forest habitats, and with amazing views of high peaks, and a great place to have a wedding or family reunion in the historical Camp Nelson Lodge or our large meadow operated by the Nelson Conservancy. The best-kept secret in the Sierra!

About Cheri Vos

We are a family of four, and live in Santa Cruz. We love Santa Cruz, and we also love the Sierra Nevada. We have owned this house and have been part of the Camp Nelson community for many years, as I have been coming here since I was a small child. We like being able to share our Camp Nelson home with other people when we are not able to be there.

Cheri Vos purchased this House in 1996

Why Cheri Vos chose Camp Nelson

We bought this house because we enjoy Camp Nelson so much. I love giant sequoias, and there are more groves in this area than anywhere else I have found.

What makes this House unique

I love sitting on the deck watching the evening light play on the mountain, walking to the river to enjoy the sound and sight of the water, the rocks, the birds and the fish, hiking near green meadows and seeing views of high peaks, and much more.

                                                        Wonderful Cabin

                                                        Gail & Michael C.

                                                        As soon as we walked in the door, my husband and I noticed how nice and clean everything was. Besides all the convenient amenities, we appreciated the rustic charm of the cabin, making it our temporary home for the week. Cheri (the property manager) made us feel welcome, while respecting our space and privacy. We enjoyed hiking the maze of winding roads and trails, taking in the beautiful scenery: trees, flowers, horses in the pasture. I highly recommend this cabin (spacious, lovely, and comfortable). Our dog enjoyed it too (woof)!

                                                        Would not stay again

                                                        James k.

                                                        Nice home and good location but very disappointed in how dirty it was. It was very dusty, had cob webs everywhere (there was one even in the shower). We also spotted mouse droppings in the window seals and the laundry room. I really don't understand why they charge a cleaning fee if they don't clean the house. They also advertise horse back riding and fishing as one of the fun activities to do near by, but the manager at the local store said there hasn't been any horseback riding in Camp Nelson for about two years. He also said there are no fish in the nearby stream. Very disappointing weekend, a waste of money.

                                                        Stayed here during the fourth of July weekend in 2015. We really enjoyed the home, the clean air, peace and quiet were so refreshing. Had two deer wander up out front the evening of the fourth which was a treat. Very comfortable and homey.

                                                        Great for family gathering

                                                        Huge family room with lots of space for family members to gather. Very clean. Very "homey" feeling.
