Rest & Relaxation
Rest & Relaxation
We had a wonderful time at this home and vacation spot. When looking for a house to rent the only one available on the days we wanted and that would work for us was this home. To be honest, based on the 2 pictures available on the website at the time we looked, and the description given for the home, we were not expecting much. We were concerned about the accomodations, but were desperate for a vacation so we booked the house. We needn't have worried. The house was nice and comfortable. The sounds of the rapids below greeted us as we exited the car and walked up the porch. There was a fantastic view from the porch of the rapids and of the sequoia hills. My favorite thing to do was walk down to the river, plop my chair in the water and relax while our kids played in the river. The home was clean and well kept. The yards, front and back, were pretty and inviting. There was plenty of room for the horseshoe and croquet games we brought. The house had everything we needed( except for wifi and tv channels), so we watched the NBA finals at the local pizza store. Be warned that one of the beds has an extra firm mattress (possibly needed by one of the owners), which my husband and I would not have been able to sleep on had we not been fortunate enough to have brought our foam mattress topper! I'm so glad we did.
Nearby Lake Kaweah was a huge beautiful lake. We were disappointed to learn that they do not rent boats or watercraft there. We rented one of their very slow homemade pontoons, but were not impressed. Fortunately, right before our vacation was almost ending, I found a place in nearby Fresno that rented boats and water toys and delivered them to the lake for us! I'm so glad, because we were able to rent a boat and raft and have lots of fun with the kids. We also visited Kings Canyon, which was beautiful. We discovered Lake Hume there, where we fished and rented a row boat for fun at the Christian camp on site. I highly recommend visiting the camp to rent a kayak or boat and have some good food and ice cream. It was nice that the camp was open to the public. Make sure to buy some freshly picked summer fruit if you're in Three Rivers during the summer. The cherries were like candy, unlike anything I've ever purchased in my grocery store. This is a place we'd like to visit again, and I'm sure you will be pleased with the home.
