About Kim Shaffer

We are Greg & Kim and Bryan & Shanna. Greg and Kim currently live in Little Rock, AR, and Bryan and Shanna are locals. Most of us grew up in the Los Angeles area, but Bryan and Kim's parents fell in love with the Sequoias and bought property in Three Rivers in the early 1990's. We have either lived here or visited frequently since that time, soaking up the beauty and peace this area has to offer as often as possible.

Kim Shaffer purchased this house in 2013

Why Kim Shaffer chose Three Rivers

The rivers are one of nature's highlights here, so we were excited to be able to own a house with such a beautiful, natural landscape right in our backyard. We bought the house in August, 2013, and have completely renovated it inside and out. Every where you look, there is attention to detail and uniqueness. From the tree in the living room to the horse trough tub, it is obvious we had a lot of fun with this project. Being from a big city, we understand the need for a stress-free, relaxing vacation that allows you to experience nature with all the comforts of home. We hope you love this house and the area as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Our house is conveniently located on a peaceful, quiet lot close to Sequoia National Park, Lake Kaweah, Mineral Kings National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, and downtown Three Rivers. Nearby activities include hiking, boating, fishing, mountain biking, golfing, rafting, wine tasting, antiquing, and swimming. We are also walking distance from the Lion's Arena, where several fun, local festivals are held.

Quiet, clean, cozy, and owners are good. Just one little thing, too much spider web in bbq area.

  • 5 of 5

Close to sequoia national park,

Kim and Brian were really helpful.

Especially I was very impressed about hot muffin, shiny candles, and hot chocolate.

Backyard was fantastic to play with kids.

Kitchen was perfect, bedrooms were clean, even sofa bed were very comfortable for kids.

Neighbors were quiet and kind.

Wifi was little slow but better than nothing.

And bbq area was little issue to me because of spider webs.

It was perfect weekend.

This house is eally good for a small family.

Thank you Kim, Brian~~~~

Great place right on the river

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house during our trip up to Sequoia National Park. Centrally located in Three Rivers and nestled right on the river, the house was spacious and clean. The property has a great porch and a fire pit as well. The owner was incredibly nice and helpful. All around great experience.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house has a great layout, comfortable beds, and is minutes away from the main entrance to Sequoia National Park. I stayed at the house with a friend and we were grateful for the location while we visited Sequoia NP and Kings Canyon NP. The house is close to Three Rivers. There are restaurants and small markets in town. The owners were friendly and helpful. Cell service at the house was spotty and we were grateful for wifi. If you are visiting the national parks this house will work great for you!

Perfect spot next to sequoia national park

  • 5 of 5

The river house is a perfect spot for families. Our 3 kids loved playing in the river by the house. It was also very close to sequoia for us to easily spend the day hiking and exploring.
