About Chuck & Tammie
Chuck (a semi-retired Movie & TV Director/Cinematographer, and Tammie, a Sales Rep. for the Kern Valley Sun are the owners. At least one of them will likely be on premises at all times. They enjoy socializing with guest on the deck, in the yard and by the river. They enjoy cooking and fine food and drink, and singing and playing guitar and ukulele. They belong to a wonderful ukulele group, the Kern River Ukulele Club, which meets every Tuesday for a potluck dinner and music making. They both love the river and mountains and the small town, village like atmosphere of Kernville and the Kern River Valley. The home is filled with pictures and mementos of Chuck's interesting career in the TV and Movie business. He has traveled the world and rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous in his career, and enjoys sharing stories of his fascinating adventures. One of Chuck and Tammie's passions is the old west, gold rush history of Kernville and the surrounding area, and making films about that history, with true-to-life recreations of actual historical events which took place in the Kern River Valley. Their desire is to share with guest, this beautiful, wild, serene, magnificent spot on the mighty Kern River.
Chuck & Tammie purchased this House in 2002
Why Chuck & Tammie chose Kernville
Chuck lived in Kernville in his late teens, when his parents moved to Kernville from Los Angeles. He fell in love with the Kern River Valley, graduated from tiny Kern Valley High School, then went out into the world, but he always wanted to come back to live here in retirement. Tammie has been vacationing on the Kern River since the 1980's and always wanted to live here as well.

A Bit of Hollywood and Paradise
What an unexpected treat staying with Chuck and Tammie! The retreat is breath taking and the sound of the river was tranquil. We will definitely be back!
Thank you, Jules. You were lovely guests and we would love to be your hosts again anytime.
Location on river is great. Nice deck. Owners are very nice people. It’s an owner occupied property.
Awesome home with chill vibes
My cousin & I stayed with our girlfriends at Chuck & Tammies and had a relaxing time. Their home is right on the river with gorgeous views. They have their own cute little private beach right on the Kern river, where you can watch people rafting in the day and see every star in the sky at night. There is minimal light pollution, which makes star gazing fantastic! The little time we got to spend with Chuck and Tammy was enjoyable & we would definitely consider staying with them again.
Perfect location in beautiful Kernville
Perfect location in beautiful Kernville. Chuck and Tammie’s home was comfortable and spacious and right on the river. I was lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the rushing river. The bedrooms were very quiet and private. The home has tremendous space inside and a beautiful deck outside. We had private access from the home to the river where Chuck and Tammie have set up the perfect area by the river to sit and enjoy the river and/or have a nice glass of wine in the evening. They were the perfect hosts!! There when you needed them unobtrusive when you didn’t. We had everything we needed. They are a very interesting couple and I would recommend visiting with them. Had an absolutely wonderful time and will definitely be back. Thank you Chuck and Tammie!!!
Sally, we really enjoyed hosting you and your grandchildren. You were all wonderful guests and we would love to be your hosts again sometime.

Erick, you and your family were wonderful guests and we would love to be your hosts again anytime.
Relaxing River front property on the Kern
We had a great trip to Chuck and Tammies place on the river.
Bar none, this was the best river trip yet and this place was reason. You can’t get closer to the river with the private step down beach. We spent most of the time there. I love the mini aqueduct running along the river for me. That was a great place to get wet without getting in the river itself. It would be great for the kiddos.
The host had an easy and very welcoming check in. Chuck was full of historical and cultural knowledge about the area. We loved that he was happy to share. The couples relaxed attitude translates well for a start this trip.
Very clean and homey feel that felt like a friends house. I’m trying to keep it short but there was so much! 😋
My hubs and friends had a wonderful time and would love to come back.
Thank you so much, Michelle, for all the kind words. It is always our pleasure to share our little piece of paradise with folks who appreciate it as you all do. We really enjoyed our conversations with you and look forward to seeing you again. You and Chad and John and Jeri were wonderful guests and we will welcome you back anytime.
