About Property Manager/Owner

We are blessed to live in such a beautiful area with Sequoia Park just 10 minutes up the road. We have lived here for 30 years and are pleased to offer our new accomodations to travelers. We strive to make your stay a relaxing, secluded, elegant experience.

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Sequoia, Kings Canyon

We believe that this is the VERY BEST riverfront spot in Three Rivers and want to share this hidden gem with others. Now that our children are grown and gone, we have put our energy into creating a spotless, private, unique and restful spot for guests to enjoy. We want your suite to be a home away from home! All of our guests only have one regret; and that is that they cannot stay longer. Some guests come with the intention to spend all of their time in Sequoia Park but once they arrive, they have a hard time tearing themselves away from our breathtaking spot.

What makes this guest house unique

This is truly a glorious spot with the sounds of the river as background music for your stay. The river is magnificent and offers great swimming in the summer. Let your stress melt away as you enjoy the quiet serenity of The River Jewel.

We can help you to schedule your trip and can set up private catering, whitewater rafting trips, artist studio tours, horseback riding and more. We will also tell you where the best hiking trails and points of interest are. Just ask!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. Thank you, Diana, for the hospitality and sharing your great space. The birds, the twinkling stars, the sounds of the river reminded us how much we enjoy spending time in nature. We travel often and this is the nicest settings and most comfortable stay that we have ever had. Thank you for making our anniversary celebration so special!

It doesn't get any better than the River Jewel Suites

  • 5 of 5

As a lifelong Three Rivers enthusiast, it is safe to say we have found the place we will come back to every year. The river access, outdoor kitchen, Colt and Brexley, pathway grounds surrounding the houses, the SHOWER... I could go on and on. The Jules family have created and oasis of peace, relaxation and lifelong memories to be had. We will be back.. every year!

The River Jewel is a gorgeous, tranquil location to enjoy a quiet day or a relaxing afternoon and evening after visiting Sequoia National Park. Loved sitting by the river and hearing the water while having a meal in the outdoor kitchen.

We loved our stay at the Kaweah Gem! We would definitely come again and recommend this place to our friends.


-Great location, secluded, but also close to Sequoia Kings and local restaurants

-Incredibly clean and well-kept, and everything worked and was well-stocked

-The bathroom... oh my goodness, the extra-large shower with 2 heads and a huge window overlooking the river (amazing!)

-Very comfortable king-sized bed with plenty of extra pillows and blankets if you need them

-The river, this site is right on the river. You can hear the rushing waters from the suite, and see it out the window, plus there's ample outdoor seating and ways to explore the river (FYI, be aware of current water conditions; levels were very high when we went, so don't swim if it doesn't look safe)

-Although we hadn't planned on it, we ended up spending a lot of time reading the books and playing the board games that were provided, a nice little bonus (and there's a rather nice TV)


Honestly, there's not much to put here, because the place is fantastic. The only thing I can think of is mentioning that the suite is one of three suites in one building, one upstairs and two downstairs. We were the only ones staying there at the time, so we had the place to ourselves and it was totally silent, just us and the river (exactly what we wanted). No idea what it's like if others are also staying there. Oh, and you may not get cell-phone reception here, though a landline is available in the suite.

Overall, a great stay. Thank you so much for having us! ^_^

Stay Here - You Won't Regret The Decision

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at the River Jewel. It is located just outside the entrance to Sequoia National Park. The accommodations were wonderful and opening the windows to hear the river rushing by was a treat. If you are a couple looking for a great place near the park, stop looking and rent this one. The hosts live on the property but their house is several hundred feet and many trees away.

Riverview Restaurant (dinner), Sierra Subs (lunch), and Gateway Restaurant (breakfast) were all good for the meals indicated. Get gas in Visalia if you want to pay a reasonable (for California) price. No Verizon cell service in Three Rivers but once you are at the River Jewel, you can connect to WiFi and make calls.

I would also recommend that in addition to the park, check out Dry Creek Drive. Drive West on 198 from the River Jewel. After going around Lake Kaweah, turn right on 216 in Citro. Cross the creek and then turn right onto Dry Creek Drive. This is a fantastic drive with beautiful scenery, lots of bird watching and photo opportunities. Dry Creek will take you to 245 and a right turn will take you to Kings Canyon Park. Early morning is the best time for this drive.

We had a great time and the three days went by much too quickly.
