Shady Glen (Quiet Log Cabin, nestled among the Oak and Cedar trees

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Spacious 840 sq. ft. log cabin with large bedroom loft near Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. The forest belt of the western Sierra Nevada begins here and extends upward into the mature giant Sequoia groves and the cool realms of red fir and lodgepole pine. In the mild climate of the Pinehurst area. This location provides seclusion and privacy with a feel of living in the forest, and the property includes a seasonal creek. The mountain environment is extended indoors with furnishing of wood and stone themes. The log walls and steeply pitched roof of this cabin blend perfectly with the surroundings.

While sitting on the outdoor deck, you will be surrounded by mature ceder and oak trees and have a view toward the creek bottom, habitat for numerous wild birds including Steller jays and acorn woodpecker. A short walk on the creekside trail provides blackberry picking opportunities, or sit under the sprawling canopy of the mature Valley Oaks and listen to the wind.

If there will be more then two adult guest, 13 and older staying, there will be an extra $15.00 per person per night, please be up front with the amount of people staying.

Pet's are welcome, I charge $15.00 too $25.00 per night per pet.

Pets most be will behaved HOUSE BROKEN and non-chewers. Pet's should not be left alone in the cabin unless you have made arrangements with the owner, there is a kennel for pets if you don't want to take your pets with you, with that said, the park is not pet friendly and will and have broke out windows to rescue pets that are in distress!

The forest on the other hand will allow pets on leashes.

I am not responsible for pets left at the property.

About Kimberli Taylor

This cabin us built in 1956 by William Bell were he lived till he passed away, I am now the property owner and would love to see it enjoyed by those that are looking to escape the city and get back to nature, a place to unplug and reconnect with your spirit, kids and heart.

Kimberli Taylor purchased this cabin in 1956

Why Kimberli Taylor chose Sequoia, Kings Canyon

I am most at home in the mountains and have lived here 37 years. The Pinehurst area provides the mountain environment while being reasonably close to the cities of Visalia and Fresno. This particular property is nestled amongst the, cedars, and oaks and is right off the main road to Kings Canyon. Wildlife are attracted to the creek which flows seasonally through the property.

What makes this cabin unique

Peace, quiet, and seclusion, opportunities for walking, birding, horseback riding, and nature study. Artists (writers, painters, musician and composers) will enjoy the opportunity for introspection. Close to Dunlap (archery center) parasailing and hang gliding (Dunlap flight park) General Grant Grove of Giant Sequoias, and Giant Sequoia National Monument.

I also allow well behaved pet's $15.00 to $25.00 dollars per pet per night pet need to be house broken and well behaved, pets are not to be lift in the cabin when guest leave, if you don't want to take your pet on your outing, you can leave them in the kennel that I have provided for them.

Clean, well-stocked, charming!

  • 5 of 5

First impression - Kimberli truly cares about her customers and has tried to provide all the comforts that you might need. I went with my elderly mom and two sisters.nshe had stocked the cabin with clean linens, towels, blanket throws, fans, books, games, pots, pans, bowls, cookie sheets, plates, silverware, toaster, microwave, spices, sandwiche bags, foil, firewood, flashlight, BBQ, etc. we went when Southern California was experiencing 100 degree days and we were nice and cool in the cabin. She had all the feeders full and we had the following visitors: a deer, a giant owl, woodpeckers, quail, misc birds, & fat squirrels. The driveway is adventurous, but if I can do it anyone can. Put your car in low and go slow. I had no problems. Kimberli stopped for a quick visit and she was very pleasant and helpful. Not too far from the parks....the highway is very curvy in out of this place.

The home is adorable and well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

Just a 30 minute drive from the the Kings Canyon visitor center! The immediate interior and exterior of the home is in great shape and well maintained by the owner. The first thing I noticed was how very clean the house was! The property is in the mountains, so there is a lot of wildlife but we saw deer, squirrels and a lot beautiful birds. Thank goodness that's all we saw, because we were told by the owner that an occasional bear does come around. The owner, Kimberlie, is a kind woman and she has put her touch into the decor of the home with beautiful quilts, pillows and a red, white and blue theme throughout the house. She has the home stocked well with towels, toilet paper and utensils for the basic stay. If you would like to BBQ, bring your BBQ tools and line the bottom the the BBQ with foil to make for easy cleaning. I'm not sure if there was a toaster there so we toasted our bread in a pan. Make sure you follow the house rules that are posted on the wall because they are important to the integrity of the property and home, otherwise, you will enjoy your quiet stay at Shady Glen. P.S. If you just want to get a drink or meal nearby, the Pinehurst Lodge is only a 10 minute drive up the road. Also, make sure you have your car and tires in good shape, as there are no services for 20 miles and the road to the cabin is paved with small rocks, to be expected. The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 stars was the fact that it was so hot there that the swamp cooler and fans only did so much. The house only cooled down for a few hours in the early morning hours. I would still go again, but if you are heat sensitive, perhaps don't go in the dead heat of summer. And also, make clear arrangements with the owner as to when you will meet her, because she will have you sign more waivers, go over house rules and go over how to use the cooler, TV and where the lights are. Otherwise, thumbs up! Beautiful home!

Best cabin ever!

  • 5 of 5

Will definitely be back! No wifi, no cell reception. A perfect place to unplug, read some books and commune with the great natural surroundings of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

A great hostess, a beautiful cabin, and we would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! My wife and I stayed 9 nights at this secluded, quiet, and private cabin. Kim met us upon our arrival from Fresno and answered all our questions regarding the amenities and workings of the cabin. It is very clean, comfortable and cozy. We were there during a heat wave and the Swamp Cooler was fantastic. It cools the cabin wonderfully instead of freezing you out like air conditioning. The cabin is well stocked for preparing meals - basically everything you need. All towels and bedding were clean and fresh. We slept like dead men after long days hiking and a nice meal prepared inside or out on the deck gas grill. Hummingbirds, blue jays, red-headed woodpeckers, deer, and cute squirrels all provided entertainment during our stay. This is infinitely better than staying in a hotel/motel. Kim didn't bother us in any way - she just said to call her if we needed anything. The cabin is only 15 minutes from Route 180, then another 15 minutes to the SEKI entrance point. Total time to Lodgepole was about 50 minutes. Kim puts a lot of time and effort into maintaining this property in order to provide a clean and comfortable environment for her guests. Thank you, Kimberli!

Summer is here and what a great summer we're looking forward to rivers and lakes are all full! A great season for wildflowers and the blossom trail is already in full bloom, I hope to see you here soon! You can also fine more info on my Shady Glen Facebook page. Enjoy setting on the deck with a cup of coffee hot tea, maybe a glass of wine or cold beer watch the stars at night or greet the sun in the morning with the visiting birds that visit the feeders. Fire season is about to start, it wont be long before there will be a banned on camp fires,

Good news the road going in to the cabin has been fixed, so no more ruts to maneuver around.
