About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Click the link to OUR WEBSITE below for more pictures and information on the local area.

Waterfall cabin is a romantic cedar shake cabin with lodge decor, leather sleeper sofa, Franklin wood stove, and open beamed ceilings. Large picture windows on the south and east sides provide natural light and views that distinguish it from other mountain cabins.

The Waterfall cabin is in a private location on 1 1/2 acres surrounded by woodland and not within a mountain community or resort development. It is within the Giant Sequoia National Monument at 3800 feet elevation and only an eight mile drive from Giant Sequoia Groves in Balch Park and Mountain Home State Forest.

There are breathtaking view of the mountains to the east and an expansive view of the valley (sometimes to the Coast Ranges) to the west. It has a spacious 'tree house' deck with gas barbecue for outdoor relaxation. Luxury towels, Egyptian cotton linens, Turkish bath robes, and down comforters are provided for a special romantic experience. The cabin is now equipped with high speed internet and Wifi!

A stunning series of waterfalls and pools carved out of solid granite bedrock are on the property just behind the cabin on Bear Creek for swimming or relaxing by. It is a perfect 'out there' couple's retreat for those who want to lose the touristy scene and find some serenity. The cabin is situated above the level of the waterfalls and access is by a short but steep switchback trail down to Bear Creek. General terrain and trail down to creek may be difficult for some children and adults. Ask owner.

A comprehensive hiking and recreation binder is provided at the house with maps and descriptions of local hikes, Big Trees, swimming and fishing holes, waterfalls, and scenic drives and horseback rides to help you plan your time.

Dog owners can take their dogs on the leash onto the Giant Sequoia National Monument trails in this area as opposed to the National Park where dogs are not allowed on trails.

The cabin is surrounded by pines, oaks, and manzanitas and serenaded by the sound of the waterfall. The site was a long-time camp for local Native Americans. Artifacts have been discovered here and mortar stones for grinding acorns surround the cabin. Naturalists and Bird watchers have wildlife viewing galore in our untouched part of the Sierra. Roadsides, pastures and woodlands come alive in the Spring with native wildflowers and blossoming Redbuds and Dogwoods.

Take the scenic drive up Yokohl Valley road to the nearby towns of Exeter or Visalia and enjoy antiquing and art hunting in their historic downtowns. We are nearby the quaint untouched village of Springville with lovely gift shops and diverse eateries from down-home to upscale.

Come to the Springville area for our Springville Sierra PRCA Rodeo in late April or our popular Apple Festival craft and food fair in mid-October. Our spectacular wildflower season is March through May.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I, my husband Matt and son Sam live at Three Springs Ranch near Sequoia in the Sierra foothills. We have an ongoing experiment with sustainable farming and hike, camp and travel when we can get away. We live here with our goat herd, chicken flock, 2 dogs, large veggie garden and 2 orchards.

Why the Owner Chose Springville, CA, USA:
We loved this beautiful area of the Sequoia/ Sierra that is closest to the LA area but largely undiscovered by tourists. After we committed to the 'simple life' and moved from LA, we thought it would be great to use our skills from building sets in the film industry to recreate some neglected cabins that had great locations and lots of potential so that others might be able to enjoy this rich area comfortably. The Waterfall Cabin was a neglected 70's cabin with purple shag carpet and beaded curtains that had been taken over by mice. We spent a year giving it a complete interior redo and a new deck. We love it's western character and treehouse feel and the waterfalls are truly special and amazing. The cabin sits just behind trees off a quiet road and is a short drive to the Giant Sequoia groves and the charming town of Springville.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The private waterfalls and creek are a short downhill trail from the cabin which sits on a wooded bluff above. The sound is so soothing and the views make you feel like you're the only person on the mountain.
