Neighborhood overview

Immerse yourself in the Southern Sierra's unrivaled natural wonders with immediate access to nature, wildlife, and hiking right outside the door. Get active together and squash boredom with a truly dizzying range of things to do. Soak in natural hot springs hot tubs at the world famous California Hot Springs resort. Then cool off in the large swimming pool. Get views of the of whole central valley from Parker pass and Parker peak, only 15-20 minutes up the hill. A few minutes further the Giant Sequoia park is a must see for visitors and locals alike. Get to Lake Isabella with her unbound lake views, water sports rentals, and a great beach for sun and sandcastles - an hour from the house. Fish and/or hike the Kern river, or simply dive in to escape the summer heat (be safe in this large, active river) in 30-40 minutes from the house.

Getting around

Both California Hot Springs and Pine Flat have small restaurants and markets, but may have odd hours, and limited supplies on busier weekends. Porterville, about 45 minutes away, has large supermarkets, movie theaters, and sporting goods stores for you to stock up on supplies as you head into the mountains. Please note: On colder winter days after storms, you may need 4WD to make it up the driveway to park next to the main house. You can always park at the bottom of the driveway. Both parking areas can easily handle 3-5 cars.

Other things to note

The kitchen features good amenities including plenty of dishes, utensils, and cooking supplies, modern appliances, including dishwasher, large fridge, nice stove, and a gas BBQ right outside. We have onsite washer and dryer in a private laundry room so the noise doesn't bother you.

You'll receive the comforts of home with a starter supply of shampoo, soaps, paper products and hotel-quality towels and linens.

The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, large closet, nice views of the forest, and access to a full bath.

The huge 2nd bedroom upstairs feature 2 double-size beds, and an en suite bath with sink, vanity, and standing shower. You can easily lay out additional sleeping bags or inflatables for kids to enjoy.

A fun 3rd bedroom is a separate cabin - fully renovated which offers accommodations for bigger kids, a small family, or those who seek complete privacy. It is about 100 feet from the main house, and has a sink and simple kitchenette area.

Between the kitchen and dining room is a small kitchen for informal eating, or additional food prep, and storage space.
