SHADY GLEN (QUIET LOG CABIN, NESTLED IN THE PINES)

Pinehurst Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 840 sq. ft. log cabin with large bedroom loft near Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. The forest belt of the western Sierra Nevada begins here and extends upward into the mature giant Sequoia groves and the cool realms of red fir and lodgepole pine. Stay beneath the canopies of majestic ponderosa pines in the mild climate of the Pinehurst area. This location provides seclusion and privacy with a feel of living in the forest, and the property includes a seasonal creek. The mountain environment is extended indoors with furnishing of wood and stone themes. The log walls and steeply pitched roof of this cabin blend perfectly with the surroundings.

While sitting on the outdoor deck, you will be surrounded by mature trees and have a view toward the creek bottom, habitat for numerous wild birds including Stellars jay and acorn woodpecker. A short walk on the creekside trail provides blackberry picking opportunities, or sit under the sprawling canopy of the mature Valley Oak and listen to the water.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • alternative lifestyle
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

This cabin us built in 1956 by William Bell were he lived till he passed away, I am now the property owner and would love to see it enjoyed by those that are looking to escape the city and get back to nature, a place to unplug and reconnect with your spirit

Kimberli Taylor purchased this cabin in 1956

I am most at home in the mountains and have lived here 33 years. The Pinehurst area provides the mountain environment while being reasonably close to the cities of Visalia and Fresno. This particular property is nestled amongst the pines, cedars, and oaks and is right off the main road to Kings Canyon. Wildlife are attracted to the creek which flows through the property.

Peace, quiet, and seclusion, opportunities for walking, birding, horseback riding, and nature study. Artists (writers, painters, musician and composers) will enjoy the opportunity for introspection. Close to Dunlap (archery center) parasailing and hang gliding (Dunlap flight park) General Grant Grove of Giant Sequoias, and Giant Sequoia National Monument.

Quick Trip

  • 5 of 5
We had a last minute chance to get away for a couple nights. We like the Kings Canyon area for the beautiful mountains and trees, but without the crowds of Yosemite. This cabin is just outside the National Park, so it is convenient to go into the park if you want to. It is also secluded from the road, so it is nice and quiet.

We have a small dog and the listing for Shady Glen Cabin says "Pets considered." So we called the owner, after we described our dog, she said it would be okay. The cabin was very nice. The owner met us at the cabin shortly after our arrival to make sure everything was okay for us. She even provided some basic supplies to help accommodate our dog. We had a great stay and returned home refreshed.

Comfy but not again

  • 2 of 5
Pro: Comfy cabin, comfy beds (and floor), owner accommodated last minute request for our 2 families on holiday. Clean and kitchen full of spices. Very close to park entrance, 15-20 min. Good for adults only.

Con: hard to find even with direction, low water pressure. Not kids friendly, don't let them use her out door chairs, kind of paranoid repeat the no fires rules over and over again. We spread out some blankets on the floor to stay together with the kids and probably cause more laundry to do, so being charged $20 more on top of my $20 tips. Lucky, next day we have a fabulous stay at Montecito resort right inside the park, for the same price with meals and activities includes. Make your choice wisely.

Owner's Response: Yes the guests ( 4 adults & 3 Children ) were charged an extra $20.00 dollars out of the $70.00 dollar deposit, If guest are not going to cleaning up after themselves, then you should not be surprised, the stove was not cleaned off, and yes the blankets that were left on the floor were washed, I have to take the blankets to the valley to wash them, I am trying to be conservative about the water at the cabin, I don't think any of the other guest that come in after you would like to sleep on blankets that were left on the floor. it is not often that I have to keep a porsche of someones deposit, And yes thank you for the $20.00 dollar tip,
I didn't have to keep more of your deposit I was able to refund, $50.00 back to you, I have written instructions on what needs to be done before you leave to get your full refund.
I don't expect guest to clean the cabin, I do expect the guest to clean up after themselves, I really don't think this is unreasonable request.
It is regretful that you feel the way that you do, you would have been welcomed back.
And as for, the NEW CHASE LOUNGE I just bought, I'm sorry that you thought that I was asking your children to stay off the furniture, what I was asking! is that they not jump on it, everything in the cabin is for all the guest to use, I am a very kid friendly place I have toys and games for the kid, I also provide a pack and play and high chair, which was left for one of the children in your party, also was not cleaned or wiped off before leaving the cabin, and as for the NO fires, I don't think I can ask that enough. We have everything to loss, if someone decides that its OK.
Perhaps if you were able to have stayed more then one night you may have not been so critical.
I took a chance booking to you and your party for one night, something I never do, for just one night. I don't think I will do just one nighters again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is as described and more. Kimberli exceeded all expectations in what she provided to make our stay memorable. The cabin is so well stocked it became a game to try and think of something you could possibly need that wasn't provided. We really appreciated the well stocked library of books to help identify wildflowers and birds in the area and information on the National Parks. From the cabin we saw deer, so many different birds (loved the California Quail) and a gray fox due to the feeding stations Kimberli sets out. Great location to the parks. A perfect place for a perfect vacation.

Priceless experience

  • 5 of 5
We had the priceless opportunity of seeing a mama bear and her 3 bears cubs while we were there. It made my stay. There were tons of birds flying around, and other forest critters. It was a great opportunity to experience peace and quiet. I would go back without a doubt. I loved it.

Quiet spot in the woods

  • 5 of 5
This cabin felt like I stopped in a quiet spot in the woods filled with wildlife! We couldn't see the road or any other houses. Loved laying in bed on the main floor and looking out the large window at the stars at night and a bear at dawn. Coffee on the deck in the morning, it was hard to get up and going. Short road to the Kings canyon entrance, all areas of these parks are quiet a distance from each other on winding roads but its all scenic. The Pinehurst lodge was convenient if not cooking yourself. I wish the cabin was closer to home, I'd make it an annual visit.

Secluded, Cozy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this cabin. The listied description was right on. The cabin was clean and maintained well. Even had some leftover groceries that we could use. The photos reflected the cabin so well it felt like we were coming back to a place we had already been. Kimberli's directions to the cabin were precise and she even met us at one of the hairpin turns on Rt 245 just before the Pinehurst Lodge & guided us the rest of the way to her property. She was a perfect landlord.
It was a treat to sit on the porch to gaze out at the "miracles of nature." It was so peaceful you could hear yourself breathe. We were up close & personal with a few of Kim's hummingbirds and the deer that wandered into the yard. Daily we drove into the nearby Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks, where there are some wonderful day or half day tours to take. On Kim's suggestion we got our gas at Clingan's Junction, about 5 miles before getting to her cabin.
The Pinehurst Lodge, only one mile from the cabin, had great food. There's lots of area to walk around her property.
This cabin is a perfect getaway. We would recommend it to couples or families. Driving Rt 245 is an experience in itself for a flatlander."

Winter is here, and we are looking forward to lots of snow.

The Kings Canyon and Sequoia Parks have cross county-skiing and snow shoeing, It is required to carry chains if visiting the parks and always a good idea.

The Shady Glen Cabin sits about 4000 ft, and visitors have had to park at the gate and walk a short distance to the cabin, (only if it snows )
