About the property

Sleeps 4 or Up to 11 People if your adventurous enough to try our tent cabins!

****For groups larger than four people please contact us directly for a price quote. Tent cabins are available for an extra fee for groups over four people.****

As you can see from the photos this is a gorgeous modern home in an amazing location. The home was an award winner that was featured in Sunset Magazine. River access from the house, archery, ping pong, trampoline, star gazing and relaxing in privacy will all be yours. Depending on the time of year you can sit around an outdoor fire and roast marshmallows and enjoy the night sky. (Based on seasonal fire restrictions.)

Year Round Rental - Main Home (2 Bedroom and 1 Full Bath)

The main house is an all glass structure that gives the visitors a fantastic view of the great outdoors. The bathroom gives full privacy when the curtains are pulled. The bedrooms do have a solid wall between them which offers privacy from family and friends while inside of the house.

The floors are radiant heat for the winter months and a wood burning stove is also available for those relaxing evenings. The summer months offer a wonderful air conditioning system to keep you cool during those hot summer days!

This home is considered an 'unplugged' location. We do not have internet or cable television in the home. The only cellular provider is AT&T and reception is very weak at the home. Internet access is available at the local coffee shop and at the Three Rivers Historical Museum.

Two Tent Cabins - The small cabin sleeps two people in a queen bed. Large Cabin sleeps up to five people on a queen bed and a bunk bed with a full size bed on bottom and a twin on top. This cabin also has a composting toilet.

Coming soon is a "Glamping shower and toilet outside!

These cabins are available year round but may not be suitable for the winter months of December to February due to low temperatures outside The tent cabins offer extra sleeping arrangements for groups larger than four people.. There is an additional fee for each cabin and an increase in cleaning fees for groups wishing to reserve them.

We do not rent out the tent cabins individually, they are only to add additional guests to your group. You must rent the main house before you can rent the cabins.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I stayed here with our toddler son and a few friends--brilliant. Clean, modern, and beautiful, great for really experiencing the Sequoia Foothills. It's more than indoor-outdoor California living; we felt integrated with the outdoors even when you're inside--coyotes trotting in the distance, the sun coming through the sycamores. Gorgeous light in the early morning and evening. Despite all the glass and the views, it still felt private, as the house is screened/set off a bit from the road and neighboring properties. Canvas tents are comfortable and festive for those willing to rough it with the climate. Large lot with great firepit/bbq setup. Night sky is amazing. Kids will enjoy exploring the creek out back. Definitely recommended. Be sure to check out the swimming hole just inside the entrance to the Nat'l Park.

Incredible experience all around!

  • 5 of 5

We simply LOVED our stay at the glass house...it was serene and peaceful inside and out. Thoroughly enjoyed our morning coffee outdoors before it got hot and the early evening wine by the river....the stunning view of the meteor showers was total icing on the cake. We'd love to come back and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable stay close to Sequoia National Park. Make sure to do grocery shopping before coning to 3 rivers though as there is not much in town.

Very unique property, but some issues with ants/mice

  • 3 of 5

We like to stay in unique properties when we travel if possible, and this award-winning glass house was certainly unique. Virtually every interior and exterior wall in the home is made of glass panels (there is one solid wall and a curtain for privacy in the bathroom) and if you're interested in architecture, by all means book this property.

There are other benefits of staying here, as well. The home is well-equipped to keep a family busy, with a ping-pong table, trampoline, hammock, DVD player. It's air conditioned and has all the amenities, including high-end appliances and fixtures (Bosch, Duravit, Gaggineau). The property manager responds almost instantly to emailed questions, is a wealth of helpful information about the parks , and returned my deposit within hours of our departure.

Location is about as good as you're going to get unless you stay in Sequoia National Park. Note that the park entrance is only minutes away, but that is misleading. To get to any of the "good stuff" in Sequoia you're going to have to drive at least 40 minutes on wind-y roads. To get to Kings Canyon you have to drive considerably further. There doesn't appear to be any other towns that provide easier access.

There were two major downsides to this property. First, it is infested with ants and mice and the owner appears to be more concerned with using all-natural products to address the issue than with actually getting rid of the pests. Ants are everywhere. I was picking ants out of the shower and when I picked up a book I had been reading from the floor, it was crawling with ants. Mice are a problem, too. My daughter saw one run across the bathroom floor while she was showering, and one ran across the living room while we were all watching a DVD. To me, a person should be able to live with whatever pests they feel comfortable living with, but once you decide to rent out your home (especially for the nightly rate we were charged) you need to make sure the home is pest-free.

And secondly, this house is clearly someone else's house. We frequently rent homes instead of hotels when we travel and most are rental properties designed for a guest's comfort. In this house, I felt a little like Goldilocks barging in to someone else's living space while they'd momentarily stepped out. The limited storage space in the cabinets and fridge were filled with their food, and half the closet space contained their clothes. The effect was more Airbnb than luxury property rental.

AMAZING LOCATION AND ENVIROMENT

  • 4 of 5

The glass house, appliances, fixtures and furniture are unmatched. Extreme good taste in everything and you can really find all that you might need for your stay in the house (mi kids loved the Projector Film and all film options). Dos-and-Dont's pretty clear in the "house instructions", helpful landlord, and Three Rivers is also really well located if you are aiming to explore the Sequoia National Park and you can find (reasonable) food around and a very decent Market, really worth ! Humm....just remember that we also miss some nice Chef Knives to help cooking.

IF we could say something in a positive way (just to improve even more the stay), we notice that the yard was not so well maintained (spider webs everywhere around the garden furniture), the river access could be cleaner and the fact that one day we woke up with a car parked inside and a men digging a ditch a few meters from the GLASS house. Not a stress situation but also not nice and not correct. We should be warned.

But, setbacks apart, we highly recommend the rent.

Owner's Response: Thank you Paula for the review! I did not know anything about this person being on the property digging a trench. I would never let someone work on the property while a guest was in the house. I really wish you would have contacted me immediately, I would have taken care of the situation. I am very sorry about that! I do understand the spider web comment. It truly is a constant battle for us. I will make sure to notify the housekeeper to be more thorough about this situation. Thank you, Sheila L. Stone ~ Property Manager

Just what the pictures promise

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights in the "glass house", and enjoyed every moment. The seclusion was great as well as the amenities. If peace and quiet is your desire, there is no better place.

Map

Nearest Motorway
2 Miles
Highway 198
Car: necessary

This home is centrally located while remaining private and quiet. It is apx a 3 minute drive to the local market and restaurants and a 10 to 15 minute drive to the entrance to Sequoia National Park entrance station. The house is on South Fork Drive in Three Rivers and South Fork Drive dead ends into Sequoia National Park where you can hike and camp, it's a lesser known entrance and there are no fees to get in, however there are no giant redwood trees in this part of the park. It takes apx 25 minutes to drive from the home to the end of South Fork Drive. It's a beautiful drive but the pavement does end and you'll be on dirt for the last couple of miles.
