About Karin Josif
Although we currently live in Kernville full time now, we used to live and work in the Los Angeles area and enjoyed bringing our children and our dogs here for the past 25 years. As a family we love all of the outdoor activities this area has to offer, especially hiking, biking, whitewater rafting and kayaking.
Karin Josif purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Karin Josif chose Kern County
We spent our honeymoon here 28 years ago, and purchased our first piece of property. Camping here when our kids were babies is one of our favorite memories. We grew to love the beauty of the area. There is so much opportunity for all kinds of outdoor activities, and plenty of time left for relaxation. We always wanted a place right on the river. We purchased this cabin in 2007 and have since done a complete renovation, both inside and out. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. This property is just a 3 hour drive from the Los Angeles area and 45 minutes from Bakersfield.
What makes this Cabin unique
The obvious benefit to this property is its location. It offers the amazing sound and view of the river, with the backdrop of beautiful mountains. You will be able to access many activities just by walking outside. Bring your swim suit, fishing pole, book and cooler and spend the day at the beach that is just steps out the back door. Drive 3 miles into town, walk around the antique shops and grab a bite to eat at one of several restaurants. One of our favorite things to do is take the dogs for a hike each morning on one of many hiking trails.

Perfect weekend getaway!
Beautiful house right along the river. Impeccably clean home, great amenities, and perfect for our family of 4. We've stayed in many vacation homes, and this one has by far been our favorite. We look forward to future trips to Kernville. Thanks so much!
This was an amazing place to stay at! You can't go wrong everything is top of the line! The view was spectacular!
Slice of Paradise
Beautifully appointed and exquisitely stocked with all the little things you'd need in the bath and kitchen, including sharp knives, Teflon pans, to-go cups for cold and hot drinks and even instant hot water. I could go on and on, so I will. Comfortable mattresses, washer and dryer, the best little balcony facing the river, and swinging lounge chair to top it all off. Gated front entrance gives you peace of mind if you have brought toys along such as rafts, kayaks, bikes etc. This home is a super neat, clean and well organized private resort on the river. Lastly, it is dog friendly! We had a blast.
Great location close to town right off the river properties very neat and clean
If you picked this home it for a reason there's something here for everyone to enjoy my wife and I did thank you very much for a great experience.
Absolutely Amazing Home
The pictures of the home and especially the back deck/views drew us in. We knew it would be amazing but the pictures didn’t do it justice! Absolutely amazing views! Very clean and updated home. The town of Kernville is adorable, the people of Kernville are super nice and the guys at the General Store just up the road could not have been nicer and informative about fishing and the area! Great food also! We got lucky, on our last day in Kernville they opened the trail of 100 Giants for the first time this season. It was snowy, sunny, gorgeous and we were the only people there! Fantastic vacation! Thank you for opening your amazing home to us! We will be back!

Perfect for young families too
Like other reviewers we loved the river access and spacious kitchen. We had our 2.5 year old and 8 week old and so appreciated the sturdy furniture, gates on the porch and front yard, and the instant hot water option. Little things like that make a big difference with a young family. We also enjoyed the hike to the sandy beach and caught a large trout right out front. That was an absolute highlight for our little guy!
Immediately from this property is fishing, hiking, rafting, kayaking and mountain biking. No need to drive anywhere.....it's all right outside your back door. Also in the small town of Riverkern, a few hundred yards from the home, is the Riverkern General Store. They will have all the basic essentials. Great tri-tip sandwiches, soft drinks, beer, fishing gear, and other miscellaneous items you may need.
