Three Rivers House Rental Photos and Description

Large Comfortabe Home, Sleeps 8 , 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, large deck & hot tub

With 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, the Blue Heron will comfortably accommodate 8 guests. Check-In time is 3:00 PM, Check-Out time is 11:00 AM.

The Blue Heron Ranch is only 15 minutes from the entry to Sequoia National Park, and 5 minutes from the center of Three Rivers. It is the perfect vacation retreat with river access for family and friends. The depth of the river varies between seasons. In the spring it may be high and later in the summer it can be much lower.

The living room is large, as well as the dining area and the kitchen with island. The kitchen is fully equipped and we provide enough coffee to get you started, along with spices. Plus there is a screened porch and a 500 sq. ft. deck with hot tub and barbecue. Plenty of room to be together or spread out.

In the back meadow we have volleyball, badminton, and horseshoes. You can lounge on the deck, barbecue your favorite foods, or soak in the hot tub. Perfect after all that exercise!

Blue Heron for Kids:

If you are bringing the kids, we provide two high chairs and two pack-and-plays for small children. Let us know before you arrive and we will set up the kid’s wading pool next to the deck so you can keep an eye on them while you relax or play horseshoes. There are kids’ videos, books, and games. An ice chest is provided for your day trips to the park or an afternoon at the river.

Blue Heron Ranch is nestled on an acre and a half of lush, natural landscaping. It is only a short walk to the private beach on the North Fork Kaweah River. You can enjoy the water, glimpse wild ducks, an occasional Great Blue Heron, Red Tailed Hawks, or any number of our local feathered friends. The North Fork River is the perfect Huckleberry Finn place for kids and parents to play.

If you're up to it, take a river rafting tour available through several companies. Walking or hiking up North Fork Drive, the old Colony Road, will give you some idea of what the early settlers in this magical place accomplished with picks, shovels, and a little dynamite.

The world famous Kaweah Post Office, built in 1910, is nearby. It is a national monument and the smallest USA post office still in operation.

In the early morning or evenings, you may see deer grazing in the meadow or a family of wild turkeys passing through. California quail nest in the underbrush and make their appearance frequently. A special treat are the large gray squirrels gathering acorns from the majestic oak trees.

The rooms are large and tastefully furnished. Original paintings decorate many of the walls. The comfortable bedrooms will welcome you at the end of a long, fun filled day.

We look forward to your visit. If there's anything extra you might need, just let us know and we will do our best to provide it.

About David & Susy

David & Susy: We love Three Rivers and Sequoia National Park. The area we live in is called Kaweah. It was one of the earliest pioneer settlements. North Fork Drive, which used to be called “The Kaweah Colony Road “, was the first road into Sequoia Park.

David & Susy purchased this house in 2012

Why David & Susy chose Sequoia, Kings Canyon

This is a beautiful location. Lots of wild life, deer, turkeys, quail, and of course the Great Blue Herons. It is close to a wonderful spot on the river, and only a short drive to town and the park entry.

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for family gatherings, as well as just getting away from the city with friends. It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, this area is gorgeous. In the spring and summer, it is green and lush. Fall and winter can be ablaze with the color of the changing seasons. Whether you come from far away or just from down in the valley, you will be delighted.

The accommodations, from furnishings to linens, will exceed your expectations.

Great Home Near Sequoia NP

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this family friendly home. There is plenty to keep you busy with volleyball, horseshoes and after hiking in the Sequoia's a jacuzzi which we used every night. The home has a nice size deck with a BBQ perfect for entertaining. During our walk to the stream in the mornings we saw several deer, wild turkeys, and quail. We also enjoyed our daily visit from Eifeil the cute little pup that lives down the road. We would highly recommend this property and would stay here again.

Lovely comfortable home with all the amenities in a quiet peaceful setting close to the river

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Heron Ranch was a great choice for our adult family to gather to celebrate our Mother's 90th birthday. The house is comfortable, large and spacious, the kitchen well-setup for cooking for a crowd, the deck and grounds lovely to lounge on with a book or glass of wine, or game of badminton. We loved our quiets walks along the road banked by beautiful old Oaks and Sycamores and loved watching the quail and woodpeckers, and dipping our feet in the river. Three Rivers shops are close by and Sequoia National Forest is an easy day trip. David and Susy are unobtrusively close by, but available to answer questions about the area or help with house issues. Hats off to to them both for providing such a lovely retreat!

Fantastic house, great hosts, close to Sequioia National Park

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Heron Ranch was great! Definitely one of my top rental experiences.

When we arrived, there were clean towels in every bedroom, bug spray on the deck tables, a full freezer stocked with ice, and a very helpful binder on the kitchen table with everything you need to know about the cabin (welcome note, map, grill instructions, etc.). The living room couches are very comfortable, the kitchen is well-appointed, and the beds are cozy. The back deck is a great place to relax and have a drink, or play some badminton and/or horseshoes. We didn't get around to using the hot tub, but it was all set up.

It's also conveniently located just a short drive from the entrance to Sequoia National Park. I think the trip to Moro Rock trailhead took us about 40 minutes.

Only 5 minutes to the center of town and 15 minutes from Sequoia Park entrance. Close to everything! Please note that in Sequoia Park mountain communities, AT&T cellular service receives in more places than any other company. Verizon is spotty, and other companies may not work in the hill country at all.
