A truly magical place! This is like no motel I have ever stayed at before. The rooms are very pleasant, clean and comfortable. There are also several other buildings available for guests to use for meetings etc.The ample grounds contain beautiful hikes, meadows and picnicking places, with mountain views. The manager is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful and hard-working people I have ever met! I got married here and it could not have worked out any better. She tirelessly worked with me on arranging all the details beforehand and then ran around for several days during the big affair making sure everyone had what they needed - we were so lucky to have her helping us! I am eternally grateful.

It's been several months since we held out wedding there, and because it's a five-hour drive for us, we haven't been back yet. But oh how I look forward to returning! Whether it will be in winter, when the snow lines the paths and makes the manzanita-covered walkways so striking, or in spring when the wildflowers and lilac shrubs bloom, or at any other time, I know it will be a visit filled with beauty and joy.

Weekend getaway

The staff is very friendly. The place along with the staff create an excellent atmosphere for vacation to groups as well as families. It is very well located close to Kings Canyon and Sequoia. It es secure and confortable. It is quiet and private, it may be perfect for couples in honey moon.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and I stayed here overnight and it was very relaxing as there were no other guests around on the property. The place was clean and the manager was very helpful, very responsive to our concerns. It would've been nice to stay longer if my companions and I weren't so limited on time in our travel itinerary.

Peaceful Get Away

I just loved Seven Circles Retreat. It is a rejuvenating and beautiful space. I came back refreshed. It was great to take a short drive along a forested road and enter the spectacular world class wilderness of Kings Canyon. I highly recommend Seen Circles!

This is a wonderful retreat, loaded with facilities. The staff is very kind, and make sure the guests are accommodated comfortably. We stayed here as a large group, and there were lot of activities to do for the whole group. There is also a small place for the kids to play, and a beautiful trail right behind the retreat.

The kitchen is well-equipped to cater to a large group. The lodge area is a great place for the whole group to gather and create memories. The Yurt is awesome.

A peaceful place off the beaten track.

If you like rustic and getting away from it all then add Seven Circles Retreat to you list of places you must visit. A short ride away from both Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks this Inn is nicely renovated with comfortable rooms. The staff is very helpful and the grounds are tidy and well cared for. It is beautiful in the spring when all the tree are in blossom.

When I am there I just enjoy sitting outside and just feeling the peace around me.
