Property description

Less than 10 minutes from the Sequoia National Park, nestled near the Dinely Bridge just past the village of Three Rivers, the Kaweah River Haus is a cozy, hidden escape. Relax on our 600-square-foot wooden deck and let the sound of the river wash away your worries, then walk just 10 steps through the Welcome Garden to our private rock-and-sand beach. This privately-owned, single family home is 1000-square feet. It sleeps six, with one full bathroom, two bedrooms—one king and one queen—and a queen size convertible sofa in the living room; it also boasts a washer/dryer. The kitchen is stocked with all the necessities, including a coffee maker, microwave, blender, food processor, toaster and crock pot; in addition, there is a gas grill and umbrella-covered picnic table outside. There is also ample outside seating with built-in deck benches, Adirondack chairs and kids' table and chairs.
Outfitted with hand-crafted wooden cabinetry throughout, the living room features a large flat-screen television, Blue Ray player, Direct TV, stereo compatible with mobile devices and free WiFi. Cozy up to our stone fireplace, then pursue our selection of travel publications, novels, magazines and board games—the leather lounger, rocking chair and comfortable couch invite you to enjoy! Should you be looking for adventure, white water rafting, hiking and the splendors of the Giant Forest are a short drive away. Kaweah River Haus is an oasis of calm that our guests return to, again and again.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Uwe & Nancy have lived in Three Rivers for 40 years. Uwe is originally from Germany & Nancy is a native Californian. Uwe was trained as a chef in Germany & Nancy is an RN...but they worked together for almost 30 years in the candy & ice cream business. They love to travel and have been to many places in the world, enjoying much of it on board of container ships. Since retiring & selling their business in 2005, they have not only more time to travel, but also to pursue other interests. Uwe loves his home orchard & little tractor. As a 'gentleman farmer' he converts many of his crops to jars of jams, toppings, yeasts cakes & chutneys. Nancy has turned to the fiber arts; she weaves, hand spins & dyes yarns & fibers. Both enjoy music & have an extensive collection of performances in classical, jazz, and other types of music. Meeting new people who also enjoy travelling is one of the motivations to have a vacation rental. This is a new listing as of December, 2014

Why the Owner Chose Three Rivers, CA, USA:
Our home is short distance from the River Haus. When this little gem on the water became available, we couldn't resist such a golden opportunity to have such a unique home on the river. We have had it as a monthly rental for over 25 years and now want to share the beauty of this place with many more people...and we get to enjoy it ourselves!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This secluded retreat has a spectacular view of the river in complete privacy. Leaded glass at the front door, handcrafted cabinets and a carved interior wood door reflect the custom work done in the home. Redwood boards panel the walls. There are wooden floors throughout. It all comes together to give a cabin feel which says relax. It’s time to unwind. Our location invites you to go out & explore the area...Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Mineral King and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Then return to a comfortable, private home and recount the adventures of your day. Step into the Kaweah River Haus. Step in and forget your worries...and come back soon!
