Overview

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

About Kimberli Taylor

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

Why Kimberli Taylor chose Pinehurst

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Thanksgiving 2014

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay at Shady Glen for Thanksgiving week-end. The location of the cabin is optimal to enjoy the great outdoors of King's Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. Watch out because the road to the cabin is quite sinuous.

We don't have any complaints about the cabin, except maybe that the water pressure is a little bit low, however it's nothing out of the ordinary, probably just because the water comes from a well. The kitchen has all the essential amenities (gas stove and oven, microwave, coffee maker) as well as some extras like a toaster, crock-pot and rice cooker. We really enjoyed the wood stove as temperatures at night were low.

There is an extensive choice of books and a nice collection of movies (DVD and VHS, however Kimberly told us that the VHS player is currently out-of-order). It was really nice to be able to use the cabin's hiking book and map. Great plus for that!

In conclusion, we had an nice stay at Shady Glen and would stay here again when visiting the nearby National Parks.

Excellent stay in late September

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable stay in Kimberli's cabin just 15 minutes from Kings Canyon Nat park entrance. Ideal location for exploring the park and Sequoia Nat Park. Cabin is very well equipped and comfortable and Kimberli was very responsive and attentive. We spent most of our time out on the deck eating meals outside and watching the hummingbirds and other bird life. We were treated to sightings of the following: owl, coyote, fox, deer and a mama bear and 2 babies. Stars were incredible - loved watching the night sky from the outdoor recliner and from the bed in the living area. A wonderful stay in a very unique part of the world.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer

  • 5 of 5
I can't really add much that hasn't already been covered by other reviews. Great secluded location near King's Canyon entrance, a beautiful cabin with all of the amenities, and a very accomodating owner. Cabin was very clean and was bigger than we expected from the pictures. We stopped into the Pinehurst Lodge twice for great meals and drinks. Highly recommended.

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.

Map

Car: necessary

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 ) Please visit the Kings canyon park web sit
