About Becky

Carl purchased this property back in '05 because he loved the area and the fact that it was only a 2.5 hr. escape from home! We became a couple 7 years ago, lol, actually met online! Our first weekend get-away was to this area, precisely 20 miles up the hill to one of our three vacation rental cabins at Alta Sierra. There's snow up there at times! Whether you choose to stay in charming Kernville or up in the mountains we know you'll have an amazing time! At least that's our wish for you!

Becky purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Becky chose Lake Isabella

We love the old hometown feel that Kernville provides. The community is small, charming, close to the river, Lake Isabella, the Sequoias, wilderness etc. It's a get retreat not far from our Central Coast home! And....as foodies and a couple that enjoys a good glass of wine or craft beer on occasion there's some great places to imbibe!

What makes this cottage unique

Just a short walk to the Kern River rafting companies, the Kern River and historic downtown Kernville. Cozy cottages for your party of 4 all the way up to 24 when also booking #1044489, 1044529 &/or 1044545.

It was a last minute get away & we are lucky we found this place! It is very close to all the little shops and restaurants & only 15 minutes to Kern River! I definitely recommend this place! A big plus, Becky owner was great!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words and so glad you had a great getaway Ana! It was meant to be that we had a last minute cancellation and you got it! Yay, sounds like you found a secluded spot on the river further away from our cottages since the Kern River & little park are just 2 blocks away :-)! The river is amazing now! Come back anytime, Becky & Carl

Perfect on all levels!

  • 5 of 5

My family and many friends stayed in these charming cottages. They were so clean and cozy and right near downtown Kernville area and just blocks from the river. We also loved hanging outside on the patio together, esp. at the Big Blue cottage where all of us could gather together. Becky and Carl were incredibly helpful also! I'd highly recommend this place!

Best Cabins for large group - Walk to Downtown for some fun

  • 5 of 5

We rented out the 4 cabins for a party of 24 people and had a great stay. All amenities was in good condition. Each cabin were clean and was very convinient to move around and hangout to different cabins. Close to the Rafting companies, park, river, stores and bar for Kareoke. Thanks Carl for sharing us your vacation rental.

Whitewater rafting is a huge attraction and is seasonal. Lake Isabella is just 1-2 miles away and the list goes on.We're also only 8-10 miles away from Alta Sierra where there's snow if Mother Nature agrees during the winter. There is even a small ski resort there!
