Relax in this oasis of calm on the banks of the beautiful Kaweah River.

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.

About Nancy

Nancy has lived in Three Rivers for over 40 years. She is a native Californian, was trained as an RN, and owned and operated the local candy and ice cream shop for almost 30 years with her husband. She loves to travel and has been to many places in the world, enjoying much of it on board of container ships. Since retiring & selling the business in 2005, there is not only more time to travel, but also to pursue other interests. Nancy has turned to the fiber arts. She weaves, hand spins, & dyes yarns & fibers. I 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

Nancy purchased this House in 1988

Why Nancy chose Three Rivers

My home is short distance from the River Haus. When this little gem on the water became available, we couldn't resist a golden opportunity to have such a unique home on the river. It was a monthly rental for over 25 years and now I share the beauty of this vacation home with travelers from around the world.

What makes this House unique

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!

                                                              A lovely little house, right on the river...it is everything the ad promised and more. We enjoyed our stay & wish it could have been longer! Nancy is responsive, attentive, and friendly. Delightful!!

                                                              Very charming river front cottage

                                                              My family and I enjoyed our stay at the river haus. It was a short drive to Seqouia National Park where we spent most of our days. We really enjoyed the evenings on the deck overlooking the river. Nancy is a very conscientious host. I would recommend to others.

                                                              Amazing Location, Super Hospitality!

                                                              We've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals, but nothing like River Haus. With the river in your back yard, the first thing you notice as you go through the gate is the soothing sound of the water. When you enter River Haus, you can help but notice all of the personal touches that are unusual for a vacation rental. It's not just the expected appointments. It the great care that was taken to provide a "homey" experience. Then, when you add that Nancy is such a wonderful and attentive host, it just puts an amazing cap on the experience. We would not hesitate to return to River Haus and heartily recommend it to anyone!

                                                              We loved it!

                                                              We are located at the entrance to Sequoia National Park which includes the Mineral King Scenic area. Absolute must...seeing the Giant Sequoia Trees. They are the largest living things in the entire world. Moro Rock is a huge granite outcropping which has steps up & up...and a panoramic view of the entire Great Western Divide. Take a picnic to enjoy at Crescent Meadow which John Muir called the most beautiful meadow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Hiking, rafting, cross country skiing, scenic drives, bird watching and spotting bears, coyotes, bobcats, fox, mountain lions and raccoon will add to your nature experience.
