Wildflowers!! March through April

**SPECIAL** Free pool heating Oct, March 17 - May with 3 night or longer stay

This cabin has 2 queen bedrooms, one with attached bath and a second large bathroom. A sleeper sofa is in the Great Room.

A long time spring along the old Jordan Trail, Bear Spring is now the source of water for this beautiful and unique vacation cabin and swimming pool. For peace and quiet this rural property (not in a resort development) cannot be beat.

This 1800 sq. foot solar-powered hilltop cabin sits on a very private, gated 2 acre estate bordering Giant Sequoia National Monument in the Southern Sierra, just 12 miles from the Giant Sequoia groves at Balch Park.

At 2500 ft elevation, the treed park-like grounds have 360 degree views looking out to Mt. Dennison, Blue Ridge and the valley below. The home has two queen bedrooms, living room with sleeper sofa, love seat and sofa, two bathrooms, full kitchen with bar and breakfast area, formal dining area and game room.

Outdoor areas include a wrap around deck, covered back porch with seating, deck with seating by pool and seating pool-side.

The pool is fed by spring water and pool chemistry is kept strictly balanced for hygiene.

Pool heating is available for an extra fee October, April and May and is free with a 3 night stay or longer. Heating is not necessary June- mid October.

This upscale vacation home boasts everything that you are looking for to provide a fun, peaceful and relaxing time for your family or small group of friends. An open plan with high, exposed beam ceilings and plenty of comfortable seating create a pleasant social atmosphere. Clerestory windows and French doors bring the outdoors in and provide plenty of light. The beautiful spring fed swimming pool will keep everyone cool and entertained in the summer, and the wood stove will warm winter evenings.

A comprehensive hiking and recreation binder is provided at the house with maps and descriptions of local hikes, Big Trees, swimming and fishing holes, waterfalls, and scenic drives and horseback rides to help you plan your time.

Dog owners can take their dogs on the leash onto the Giant Sequoia National Monument trails in this area as opposed to the National Park where dogs are not allowed on trails.

The Master Bath has been recently renovated with antique vanities, a claw foot bathtub and a travertine double shower with rain shower heads. Little luxuries like Wifi, DVD library, high thread count sheets, plush towels, down comforters make this luxury cabin extra special.

The game room, with classic billiard table and tournament quality Foosball table, and outdoor ping pong table hoop-shooting and tether ball provide fun without ever having to leave the property. When you do venture out, there are lakes, rivers, waterfalls, winter snow and big trees only a few miles away.

Avoid hectic tourist crowds and discover the quiet beauty of the Giant Sequoia forests, rivers, lakes and waterfalls in Balch Park and Mountain Home State Forest within Sequoia National Monument. Ride horses among the Giants, hike, fish, bike and cross country ski. This cabin is located near the quaint village of Springville with restaurants, shops, local entertainment, a new park and visitors center.

Come for the Springville Sierra Professional Rodeo and Jackass Mail Run Weekend in April, wildflower touring March through May, bull riding events in August and Apple Festival in October.

Clean and well furnished.

  • 4 of 5

The whole family loved it and the owners were responsive and great!

*Of note, there were some cobwebs and spiders, but that's what's goes on in the mountains.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ricardo. We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay. Yes, The spiders tend to rebuild their webs on the porches at night, but as Charlotte taught us, without them there would be a heck of a lot more flies and mosquitoes. The wildlife tries to tolerate us and we try to tolerate them!

Comfortable, spacious, well appointed, beautiful views. We loved our stay here.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bear Spring Cabin. There is so much to do and see both on the property and in the nearby Sequoia groves and surrounding mountains. We wish we could have stayed longer. The house and grounds were spacious and had everything we needed.

Great Vacation Spot for a Family Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 3 nights, 4 days at the Springville cabin property and had a blast. The property itself is in great condition and provided a lot of fun activities for us both on-site and close nearby. The guest cabin is very private (separate unit) so perfect for a family who has small kids and would need some privacy. My only critique/criticism of the property is that there are house rules plastered all over the place which to us was a bit overkill. We get it.. you want to keep the house in good condition but also provide a fair warning to guests that additional fees could be imposed if anything is damaged during your stay, but it's a bit much. Literally every wall in the place had a sign posted.. some had 2 or 3 :) With that said, I would consider returning to the property another year. It was a very peaceful and quiet get-away for the extended family. Oh and Shelley is great to work with too! Very responsive and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you Elizabeth for your compliments and comments. Oh yes, we do have quite a few little signs. I tried putting instructions and notices in the guest information book, but guests seem to find the info more useful when it is at hand. :-) I do have a couple of signs about what not to do with the towels and cookware after having chronic problems with having to replace them because of misuse.

An Unique Find!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from three nights spent at the Bear Spring Cabin. It was a unique property. The house itself was comfortable, well taken care of, and had many unique features. Having teenagers, we were happy that there was no connectivity. We actually spent time as a family without interruption. Our daughters LOVED the game room. They logged many hours of pool.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bear Spring Cabin. It was a great place to return to after a day of hiking (Balch Park, Mountain Home State Forest, and Sequoia National Forest all have some great trails) or even spend the entire day there enjoying the pool. The game room is a really nice feature as well and we put it to good use. Having spent many vacations in VRBO rentals, I would also like to mention that of all the places we have stayed, Shelly was a most responsive and accommodating host! Thank you for a great week!
