Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am semi-retired. Mother of 3 daughters and 2 sons. The sons and one daughter are step but I don't like to use that word. I have 9 grand-children. I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. where I reside now with my husband and our 3 dogs, Harley, Candie, and a newly adopted stray female my son named Peanut butter because she would come to him if he held out his peanut butter sandwich. This home was left to me by my father who pasted away in 2012. It was his wish for me to keep it to use as a peaceful getaway for my husband and I as well as for our kids and grand-kids. I decided to rent it out as a vacation home so I can support it since I have found that the utilities and the water are quite pricey in the Kern river valley. I also like to do my part to encourage visitors to Kernville it is a town near and dear to my heart. My parents were very active in the community. I want Kernville to thrive. So we have a peaceful town to come to when we need to get away.

Why the Owner Chose Kernville, CA, USA:
Kernville is a beautiful town with friendly people. This little neighborhood where the house is located is a quiet peaceful place. It is 1/2 block from the Kern river so you can here the river from the back patio. The house is about 1 mile from downtown Kernville. This place has all the comforts of home. We have it the way we like it also because we stay here ourselves when we get the chance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kernville is a beautiful little town. It still has the small town feel and the friendly people in it. They have their own brewery "The Kern River Brewery" is a great place to enjoy your favorite ale and pub food. Ewing's on the Kern is a wonderful restaurant that has reopened and is beautiful inside and has a gorgeous view of the river and the town from most any seat. The food is excellent and the service is great. The Kernville Museum is a fantastic place to learn about the beginnings of the Kern river valley and the generations that developed it. Also about the movies that were made in the area and much, much, more.
