GIANT SEQUOIA NAT. MONUMENT CABIN, IN MOUNTAINS AT 7200 FT!!!!

Camp Nelson Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

FANTASTIC LOCATION!!!! Private and Peaceful Detached Cabin. For someone who wants a true mountain experience, this is the real thing. Wonderful and rare opportunity to stay at high altitude in the Giant Sequoia National Monument with a private deck looking into a grove of Ponderosa Pine Trees. This cabin is NOT in the foothills, but is at 7200 feet, far enough into the monument to have easy access to pristine hiking and outdoor activities. 'Ponderosa' is a very small enclave of cabins at the top of a mountain range and is surrounded by National Forest land. This cabin is detached and private.

SIDE NOTE ABOUT THE MONUMENT: The Giant Sequoia National Monument and the Sequoia National Park are not adjacent. The monument has a separate approach from the valley up to the mountains than the Park. Many prefer the monument as it is similar in topography as the Park without the traffic and crowds, but this cabin is not ideal for commuting to the National Park.

Nearby are groves of Giant Sequoia Trees, (Freeman Creek trailhead 1.5 miles from cabin) stocked fishing at Peppermint Creek, waterfalls, world-class rock climbing and hiking at The Needles (trailhead is 2 miles away), Dome Rock (3.5 miles from cabin), and Trail of 100 Giants is 10.7 miles from cabin. Also on the mountain is a pack station that offers day rides into the Golden Trout Wilderness Area. The Ponderosa Lodge (with restaraunt, general store and bar) is approx. 1 mile away.

The cabin has one upstairs bedroom (queen bed and one twin) and a large upstairs loft (three twins and queen), and a full sofa bed downstairs. Although number of beds can sleep more than six, the multiple beds are to accomodate different combinations of sleeping arrangements. Our maximum number of guests is 6 people at any one time.

We rent out this cabin from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Please do not contact us regarding winter months, as we close the cabin down during that time.

About The Owner

Hi. I'm Christine and my husband Tom and I are outdoor enthusiasts who love having a comfortable place to come back to after a day of hiking and exploring in the woods. After camping at a nearby campground, we fell in love with the pristine beauty of this area and were excited to find that there were private cabins to purchase so close to first-class hiking. After five years of owning the cabin and hiking in the area, we are still finding amazing new places. On the other hand, just hanging out on the deck looking out into the tall trees isn't bad either.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Camp Nelson

We chose to buy a cabin in this area because we love to explore the outdoors and this cabin is located within 10 minutes of at least 30 different hiking trails. While most cabins we looked at were located at the foothills and required a drive up the mountain for the best hiking, this one is located at the top of the mountain, so we can easily hike for half of the day, come home for lunch/rest, and go out for another adventure for the second half of the day.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is within 10 minutes of the Needles Overlook trailhead, The Freeman Creek trailhead (with Giant Sequoias) and Dome Rock (which has an amazing view of the Kern River Valley). If you prefer to stay at the cabin and rest instead of venturing out, you will find that it is nicely nestled in among large trees and has a big deck that looks into the trees. Peaceful is an understatement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tom & Christine -Thanks for the quick return of my cleaning deposit (plus interest!) for the Ponderosa Cabin. Had a great time there and went hiking every day (including Needles Lookout in a thunderstorm!). Really enjoyed hugging the big trees (and the big rocks)! Looking forward to going back next year. Thanks.

Home away from home!

We had an amazing time during our stay in Ponderosa! Our days were spent touring the beautiful, scenic hikes that are only minutes away from the cabin; then we’d come back to a cozy, clean cabin that felt like coming” home”, even though it was only for a few days :) The cabin was well stocked and comfortable, and the kitchen had all the pots, pans and dishes we needed for all of our meals. This is the perfect place to take in a big dose of fresh, pine-scented mountain air and relax for a few days!

Quiet, secluded, beautiful!

If you're looking to get away from everything and enjoy the beauty and solitude of the mountains, this is it. No cell or internet service, so you will be unplugged, which was wonderful. Day hikes abound (most involve elevation changes.) The cabin is clean and well supplied. (I would suggest that it could use some deck chairs. I would bring camp chairs to sit outside if I go back.) Nice wood stove provided warm evenings. We took a telescope and set up on Dome Rock for some nice viewing. It's just down the road. Had a great time, and plan to go back.

A great weekend away

  • 5 of 5
We rented the cabin for Labor Day 2010. The cabin was as advertised, and served for a great homebase. The cabin is near a ton of great hikes in the Sequoia National Monument, and while there are other cabin's around, you definitely have a sense of having your own space. There is a paved driveway that holds more than one car, a dishwasher and washer dryer, a kitchen table for 4, a TV with Satellite. No Cell or Internet, but we all considered that a great thing, as there are very few opportunities to disconnect these days. There is a land line in case of emergency.

We found the cabin to be a very fair value, and the owners to be very communicative. You will likely enjoy your stay as much as we did.
