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 Kernville

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.

Map

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.

Comfortable, beautiful views with great decor and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at how nice the house was. It is like a model home. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids, ages 7 and 10. It has everything you need for your visit. Everything is designed to make your stay easy and comfortable. In the kid's room (second bedroom), there is a dimmer on the light. The kitchen is fully equipped. Temperature control is easy. There are chairs to take down to the river to relax. The check in/out process was super easy. The hosts are extremely kind and organized. I wish they would come to my home and decorate/organize it! The even leave a book just like in a hotel that gives you all the information you need for a great time. The location is perfect. It is walking distance to the general store where you can buy sundries and fishing equipment. We fell in love with this rental! Oh and there's a private sandy beach walking distance from the house where you can go and take a dip. Enjoy!

Top 10 Place to stay at Kern

  • 5 of 5

Pretty exceptional, comfortable and super clean. If you are into cooking away, this is the kitchen to do it in. Owner is very nice and on top of things. Fishing is quite good in the back if you know how to river fish. My only disappointment is that the cooling system is a higher end swamp cooler. The amenities listed on VRBO stated it had AIR CONDITIONING. Given the weekend there was 103+, it was a bit too warm inside at times. I will bring my Vornado fan next trip. But, it didn't ruin my nice time there! Thank you, Karin.

Starry Skies!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome on every level! It is as great as the pictures look. Clean, comfortable and organized. Kitchen is great for cooking. Everything you need is there. We wanted a place on the river; so nice to be able to walk down to the sandy beach( beach chairs provided). We enjoyed sitting on the back deck listening to the river and star gazing. We saw a few shooting stars. From the front porch we enjoyed a view of the Milky Way; so nice to be in a place with dark skies. Clean, quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend a visit to this charming cabin!
