ART AND NATURE LOVER'S RETREAT, 15 MIN TO SEQUOIA-KINGS CANYON

Pinehurst Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Quiet, cozy, inspiring, art-filled: Fivespot is a relaxing destination for a week or weekend. Perfect for couples or small families, enjoy the books, the sauna and outdoor shower, the claw-foot bathtub, the fireplace, and lots of cozy pillows and throws.

Feeling creative? Add something to the chalkboard wall, or stroll to the hilltop behind the cabin and sketch the surrounding foothills. Several painters and writers have already used Fivespot as a personal artistic retreat - you can too!

There's comfort and convenience: a covered stone patio, gas bbq, kitchen with all the trimmings, and lots of outdoor space means you can cook and dine inside or out.

Year-round comfort and fun at Fivespot:

Summer is the high season in the Sierras, for good reason: the sun shines from June through October. Hiking trails are open, wildlife and wildflowers abound. But we locals enjoy the fall, winter, and spring even more: sun gives way to rain and snow, life quiets down, time to rest and renew. Fivespot is perfect for an off-season retreat. The road to the cabin is kept cleared of snow, and the road into the Parks is accessible if you have 4-wheel drive or chains (we can help you with that). The fireplace and sauna keep you cozy; you've got time to think, write, read, or just relax. It's a delightful time of year - please consider a visit!

Winter activities at and around Fivespot:

Winter is never far from Fivespot: at 4000' elevation, we get at least one substantial storm each year. If you are lucky enough to be here at the perfect moment, you can snowshoe right out the back door. But the cabin is also perfectly situated for near-certain winter adventures - it's just a 15 minute drive to the entrance of Kings Canyon National Park, where sequoias are blanketed in deep snow all winter. And Fivespot is located on a well-maintained state road, so getting here is easy. Snow play, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing are these Parks' best winter activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved our three nights at Fivespot. A wonderful place to be. We loved the hummingbirds in the backyard very much.



And after our snow-walk in May, in Kings Canyon N.P., there was that great fireplace.



Thank you for being here

We are former New Yorkers (Brooklyn, to be precise) and artists. We moved to Pinehurst in 2003, bought the 1940's cabin next to our home in 2007, renovated it, and opened it as 'fivespot cabin' in 2008. Here's hoping you'll stay at our place next time you come to the Sierras!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I just spent New Years in this wonderful cabin. I was a little concerned about booking a cabin in the mountains because I'm a 26-year-old, 100% city girl but this cabin matched every hotel that I have ever stayed in. The cabin had a perfect located with modern decor and appliances. It had the added ammenity of a fabulous sauna. The homeowners were very nice even after I broke a plate and even had cute little extras like microwave popcorn and ever variety of hot tea. We are planning another trip to this cabin and I have told all of my friends about it, WONDERFUL.

CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE.

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted from the begining with all the flora and fauna outside and art and whimsy inside. The house was well equipped - especially the kitchen which was greatly appreciated. We so enjoyed the beautiful patio and grounds and watching the hummingbirds too. Is was a wonderful retreat for the two of us, or a small family would be happy there too. Highly recommended.

INCREDIBLY RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
A friend of mine and I were truly blown away by both the location and how thought-through everything was at the cabin.
Location: serene and quiet; short drive to the park; tons of bird-watching. The "back-yard" has some great views. Short walk to the local bar/ restaurant that has very decent food and a solid bar.
The cabin: claw-foot tub, indoor/outdoor shower, sauna, bbq grill, well stocked kitchen, wood fireplace, ample seating and lounging spaces, and a great library selection. Honestly,I can't even go on - makes me want to go back already.
The owners are super friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this cabin.

LOVELY WELL-EQUIPPED CABIN IN THE PARADISE OF THE SIERRA NEVADA

  • 5 of 5
This cabin has it all -- a rustic charm with modern amenities. The fire place is wonderful, the sauna is DIVINE, and both patios are their own worlds of relaxation and beauty. Everything it should be and more. In the area, this is the ONLY one we would have picked, and we're glad we did.

SKY FULL OF STARS - UNFORGETTABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six spent 2 unforgettable nights at this wonderful little cabin. Our 4 kids (10, 9, 6, 3) slept in the bedroom and enjoyed the cosy, rustic atmosphere a lot. When we weren't discovering the National Parks the kids enjoyed the lot and strolled around the property. They didn't want to leave. My husband and I enjoyed a drink at night at Pinehurst Lodge within walking distance, the locals were so nice and friendly. We will never forget all these stars in the sky, just amazing. It was nice and quiet, we slept well on the pull-out sofa in the living room, only the refrigerator was noisy - we just switched it off during the night so it couldn't bother us ;-). Mahalia is a very friendly, nice person. She and her husband live in a cottage next door but both properties are very private. The cottage was well stocked and we received a list before we arrived. This was really helpful!! We loved the map they sent us, so special and artsy! Thanks for having us, Mahalia. We will never forget our Sequoia Park experience thanks to you!!!! Wish you all the best!!!

PERFECT BASE FOR EXPLORING KINGS CANYON & SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARKS

Perfect base for exploring Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks
  • 4 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay in this artsy cabin, just minutes away from the national park entrance. We enjoyed dinners on the front porch and coffee on the back patio. We were fortunate to find the 5-spot flowers in bloom and the hummingbirds frequently feeding at the honeysuckle bush by the outdoor shower. The kitchen was well stocked and included various herbs for cooking. The only thing it needed was brighter lights so I could see better while I cooked dinner. The outdoor sauna and shower looked inviting if only the temps had been cooler. We closed the windows before we left the cabin each day so the inside was comfortable when we got back in the evening. There is a swamp cooler available, but we didn't use it. The owner is flexible with check-in & out times. I highly recommend this property to everyone.

Few vacation cabins are as close to Kings Canyon National Park as Fivespot Cabin. A 15-minute drive to its entrance will bring you to the feet of giant sequoias, and an hour more will take you to the bottom of the breathtaking canyon itself. From there discover prime hiking trails, waterfalls, caves and meadows - all without the crowds of Yosemite.

Other Activities: Giant Sequoia Tree Viewing, Snowshoeing, Cross-Country Skiing

The LoMele's are happy to advise or assist, if necessary.
