PERFECT!!! Wonderful place. Rustic and peaceful. All the comforts without any of the distractions.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to take your family. You can keep a watchful eye on small children from a central location. Chris and Jim were wonderful hosts. We are so happy with our stay we (7 families) unanimously voted to stay here again next year. We highly recommend the catered breakfast and dinner. Everyone could start our day at the same time, take off and explore and know dinner was waiting. No clean up. We could all enjoy the fire pit with hot coco and put the little ones to bed with eyes on baby monitors and cabin doors. There was plenty for all ages to do and explore.

Great Location for a Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 36 with a half kids and half grown ups and Seven Circles was perfect for our group. The facilities had everything for our college friends' reunion and was the perfect location because it was in the middle of California. We loved that we got to spend time enjoying each other's company and the kids loved swimming. Making and eating large group meals were made easy with the large kitchen. Our campfires at night were very entertaining and the kids were safe to roam around and play. As a group we were reviewing our experience before we left and the only thing we wished we had was another day at Badger, California. Chris and Jim were also great hosts!

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Seven Circles for a family getaway. It was great that every couple had there own room that was spacious and clean. It was a great starting point for Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The property is huge, and the kitchen was perfect for cooking for large groups. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it for large groups!

Owner's Response: This church group was outstanding. They treated the retreat center as their own personal church retreat. Even at capacity the retreat center was spotlessly clean. Nothing was out of order. They were able to take trips to Sequoia National Park and enjoyed each others company in our open patio. The kitchen was perfectly suited for the large meal preparation. The dinning lodge was perfect for the Shabu Shabu style dinning. What a treat it was to see. The yurt was set up as a worship center that accommodated over 30 guest. The rooms were perfect for families and the youth enjoyed the ping pong, basketball, horse shoes toss, and the children enjoyed the kids playground..We welcome this group back with open arms.

Charming, quiet and scenic

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying for a week long retreat. I liked it even better the second time and it felt like coming home! I felt so glad to be back!

This place is a perfect retreat setting. The rooms are basic and simple, but have everything one needs. The beds are comfortable, a big plus!!! The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, knives, pots and pans, dishes, glassware and mugs. The Yurt is a spacious meeting place and the dining room and patio provide indoor and outdoor seating depending on the weather. There is a rec room as well so small groups can meet comfortably too.

The best is that our hosts, Jim and Chris, are so responsive to our requests. They are onsite and available when needed, but are sensitive to our schedule and never intrude. They really want their guests to have a good experience and do everything they can to make it so. We will be back next year!!!!! Can't wait!, It is a perfect retreat spot.

Perfect retreat for friends and families

  • 5 of 5

Seven Circles was perfect for our group of 25 (7 families, with children ranging in age from 6-11). We were close to gorgeous hikes in Kings Canyon park (not to mention some nice short hikes the grounds), the pool area was great for hanging out in the afternoons, and we had some nice campfires for our smores. Chris and Jim were very engaging and made sure we had everything we needed. We went the catering route (so did not put the well equipped kitchen to use) and everyone was happy with all of the meals Chris and Jim made. Plans are already in the works to go back! (and don't miss Sister's Mountain House just down the road for burgers and brews).

Owner's Response: What makes Seven Circles Retreat Center are our guest. Guest that once having spent time together, become like friends. We are thankful to have met such wonderful families. They took full advantage of what Seven Circles Retreat Center has to offer. Our meal service, close proximity to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, our shamrock shaped pool, patio areas, and cool rooms. We are already looking at dates for their return with more of their friends. Welcome home!
