Good for large groups except there was no water until 10.30am on snow days.

  • 3 of 5

Liked about the home:

1.Property manager Melinda was good and answered all my questions.

2. We were a group of 20 (10 adults and 10 kids) and the house is big enough with many beds.

3. Kitchen has 2 refrigerators and many utensils..

4. It has a large play area.

Didn't like:

1. We didn't get water (not even a drop in any of the taps) until 10.30 am in the morning on snow day. I feel this case should be clearly mentioned in the rental agreement rather 'FREEZING PIPES'. Owner refunded $125 for the inconvenience that disturbed our plan for the day.

2. Heating system needs to be improved. Downstairs rooms and Upstairs balcony room were not getting heated properly. We paid extra for balcony room but couldn't use it for this reason.

3. After booking the home we came to know that, the nearest ski resort 'WOLVERTON' mentioned is closed. Dropped the SKI plan because the nearest one we found is CHINA PEAK and it is approx. 100 miles from this place.

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This review is long over due. My extended family of 36 people with kids as young as 1 year old stayed at this big house. There were enough beds for everyone and room for all to stretch. It was a short driving distance to the Sequoia National Park. We took a day trip to the park to see General Grant tree and the village. Melinda was wonderful in handling the transaction from beginning to end. Our group enjoyed the big room upstairs and the kids used it as a dance party room. My one-year old daughter enjoyed the kids play are with her cousins. The only complaint I had was that the toilet in one of the bathrooms backed up and overflowed. However, we all had a great time.

Great place for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a large group. The house has a giant common area and then plenty of rooms. Each room has bunk beds in it so it is great for families with young children. Lots of extra amenities like fire pit, play area, hot tub, and ping pong table. Neighboring property has a couple dozen cows which the kids loved as well. About a 20 minute drive into Sequoi National Park portal.

Loved It. Enjoyed it.

  • 5 of 5

We had great time with families get together at Big House . The place is very quite and easy accessible to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park. We were the first time visitors to this area and loved the place and surrounding places. Small kids enjoyed with small play area. The premise is clean and very good for family get togethers. It has good kitchen, living area and enough bathrooms ( 5+), bunk beds , furniture, indoor games for kids, fireplaces, BBQ areas, play areas for kids and adults. We had other mountain retreats and this was the best place so far. Property manager was very friendly and very helpful to make the last minute changes. We will definitely come back to this place in the future.

Big House Stay

  • 4 of 5

Recently stayed at the Big House for two nights for a family outing. First and foremost the property staff were great to work with. They accommodated our every request which also included showing us the property prior to our stay. We had a total of 15 people from multiple families. The total cost per person per night was very reasonable. Collectively we all thought this was a great value and it suited our specific needs. Some of the girls found it to be a little more rustic than they had hoped and were concerned with the bugs/ants. I had to remind them, we were in the forest with all of God’s creatures. They also felt some of the furnishings could have been updated. However having spent many nights in various camps throughout the years, most of us found it to be quite comfortable and well suited for our event. The hot water was abundant even after we all took our showers. Also the recommended restaurants in the area were great. One recommendation to consider would be to increase the refrigerator space inside to accommodate more food storage which in turn would help eliminate any intrusive ants. Storing some of the food outside the refrigerator is just an open invitation to hungry critters. All in all we enjoyed our stay there and will consider it for future events.

Great /Spacious house

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 26 people (7 families) who had booked the Big House.

Our check in time was supposed to be at 4 pm but Melinda was very good at accommodating early check in time. She is a very easy, friendly person to work with.

7 bedrooms, so can accommodate 7 families comfortably.

5 full bathrooms (4 new remolded bathrooms) 1 only Shower and 1 half bath, which was good for our group

If going by beds alone, it can sleep easily 40 people, so big groups can adjust.

Full sized kitchen (only 1 regular size Fridge)

Centralized air conditioning

Play area for kids was very nice to keep kids entertained

Close to Kings Canyon national park (40 mins) and around 1.15 hrs drive to Sequoia

House was clean when we came but we did have many problems with Spiders, most of the bedrooms had several spider webs.

The address sign it is not very visible from all directions it is written in small letters, that can be improved and maybe use lights by it so that its easily visible, also board should be visible from both sides, as of now it’s only when you are coming from 180E.

Mattresses are of very low quality, would be good if they can be a better quality.

Only one refrigerator inside the house (not very big to accommodate a big group), one is outside the house but not recommended for food storage but works for drinks)

Could have few more lights on the patio, there should be a switch next to the door outside so that it can be easily turned on when we come at night.

Only 1 Mop for the entire house, you need a few for just the bathrooms and 1 only for the kitchen and other areas.

Had a Jacuzzi but was not usable.

Overall a very nice property, but these small improvements can make it better. I would recommend it for a large group. We enjoyed our stay.
