Property type cabin

About the property

A Rustic Riverfront Cabin with 1Br, 1 Ba ~ Perfect for a couple ~

The Sequoia River Cabin is nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills, in a quaint hamlet known as Three Rivers, Gateway to the Sequoias. We are just 5 minutes to the Ash Mountain entrance of Sequoia National Park.

Our cute and cozy cabin has a well-equipped kitchen and a propane BBQ off the back deck. There is a queen-size bed in the step-up (2 steps) sleeping area, a queen-size sofa bed and a 7-foot window seat which a child can comfortably sleep on. The cabin is ideal for a couple. The rear deck is just steps away from the Main Fork of the Kaweah River. Please check out for more pictures.

We are conveniently located on Sierra Drive, the main road through town, with the main fork of the Kaweah River just steps from your back door. The private river setting allows for a true romantic getaway. There is a fire pit by the river to enjoy an evening fire and we do supply firewood.

***If the dates you want are not available, ask us about our new luxury yurt / roundhouse. It sleeps two and is located in Three Rivers with spectacular mountain views***

While we do welcome your pets, please note that dogs are not allowed on any trails in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks and our property is not completely fenced.

Relax in the Jacuzzi tub, listen to the sounds of the river and marvel at the Blue Heron and various duck species that call the river home. You just might see some deer at the river's edge.

If you enjoy fishing, you can fish in the river just steps from the back deck.

In the evening, relax in the lounge chairs by the river and be mesmerized by the spectacular star-studded night sky.

In the springtime, you can sit on the deck and catch a glimpse of the whitewater rafters and kayakers as they make their way down the river.

We offer plush towels, quality linens and a down comforter inside an organic cotton duvet. We also provide spa-quality eco-friendly bath amenities for our guests. Satellite TV, Netflix and WiFi are available as well.

This historic cabin was originally built as a fishing retreat decades ago and has evolved a number of times since then. In the '70s it was Little Rainbow, the workshop of our local silversmith. After that it became a private residence, and later a trendy coffee house named The Cabin. The Cabin later became The Buckaroo, also a coffee house/burger joint.

Single Night Bookings:

We have a two-night minimum, but when there is a single night gap in the schedule we are happy to accept a single-night booking. Just send us a message with your date and we'll go from there.

About Richard and Jeanie Smith

After coming to beautiful Three Rivers for years whitewater rafting, we decided it was time to leave the hectic life of the big city and enjoy a more relaxed and peaceful way of life surrounded by the natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Richard and Jeanie Smith purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Richard and Jeanie Smith chose Sequoia, Kings Canyon

After moving from the Los Angeles area in 2013, we had the opportunity to purchase this rustic cabin on the river and offer its charm and beautiful natural surroundings to visitors from all over the world while they visit the Giant Forest, Moro Rock or explore Crystal Caves in Sequoia National Park.

What makes this cabin unique

It's a very charming, rustic cabin located right on the Main Fork of the Kaweah River. The sights and sounds of the river are both soothing and exciting. The charming little town of Three Rivers has a wonderful sense of community and hosts an amazing array of art, music and Western-themed events.

Perfect place to stay outside Sequoia National Park

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two children ages 9 & 11. We had a wonderful time staying here. The property was very clean, well maintained and nicely stocked. Bed was extremely comfortable with very nice linen. Kids had fun playing on the bank of the river. Lots of outdoor sitting spaces. Beautiful nighttime stargazing. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Richard for providing such a great space!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a cozy cute cabin!! & Super well maintained!!

We stayed 2 nights and had a great time there.

Since I'm pregnant (I wasn't when we booked) & our 2 yrs old daughter is still too young to hike all day at Sequoia, the cabin was perfect.

She enjoyed walking around the river, blowing bubbles and soaking to the Jacuzzi at a night... and my husband cooked while I sit and just relax lol

It was a perfect quick getaway for 3 of us!

Big thank you to Richard and Jeanie! :)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Jeanie met us at the Cabin to let us in, our first impression was how clean it was, and the amazing view of the river. Jeanie welcomed my daughters dog and my 10 month old Grandaughter.

The kitchen was supplied with everything including a basket of a snacks and a bucket with everything to make s'mores! We all enjoyed the outdoor bathtub especially my Grandaughter Scarlett, it was so relaxing by the river, the slippers were an added bonus along with the super soft sheets! We enjoyed sitting out on the deck playing scrabble and watching the rafters float on by. Richard and Jeanie thought of everything, we are looking forward to going back.

Thank you Richard and Jeanie you made our Mother, Daughter and Grandaughter getaway special.
