We Loved the Farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the farmhouse during our trip to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The house was very comfortable, and the owner, Bettina, was very hospitable. She shared her home, books, toys, garden, and animals with us, and even took the time to answer the many questions that my kids (2 and 5) had even though she was a very busy lady. My kids loved the farm so much that they begged to take days off from visiting the parks so they could stay with the animals. They loved feeding grass and hay to the horse and donkeys; they had "Buddy" the dog accompany them everywhere; they said "hi" to the rooster, hen, cats, and ducks often; and my son loved picking strawberries, tomatoes, and greens from the garden. The little splash pool behind the house kept them cool in the summer heat, and the outdoor bathtub was fun for them and allowed for easy cleanup.

The house was well-stocked with all the essentials we needed; it was close to the entrance of Sequoia National Park; and there were many restaurants, as well as a well-stocked grocery store nearby. We all really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again someday.....my son keeps asking if we can just go to visit the farm sometimes even if we are not going on vacation, and my daughter plays "farm" with her animals, who all now have the same names as those on Bettina's farm. :) Thanks Bettina!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have this darling family stay at the farm. Curious, kind and thoughtful. I am hoping that they literally weathered the storm in Houston. I look forward to seeing them again.

Serene lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We were so sad to leave Bee Green Farm! It's a lovely, well-equipped and charming home on a serene and beautiful property. Our son loved the animals, and we loved looking at the stars every night. Close to the park, so it was very convenient. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful farmhouse retreat

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was a wonderful base for our adventures into Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park. It was rustic, charming, and very clean. Our children enjoyed talking to the animals, foraging for tomatoes and strawberries and herbs in the gardens, and taking an evening boat ride on the pond. Bettina was a gracious host! We highly recommend and would certainly stay here again in the future.

Relaxing getaway

We had a great time. Enjoyed the peaceful evenings under the stars. The house was well equipped with everything we needed. Comfortable and lots of things for our niece to play with. Bettina was very helpful in helping us plan our long weekend!

Wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful time at Bee Green Farm. House was so unique. Very clean and comfy. Kids loved the pond and the animals. Tetherball and ping pong were also a hit!

Bettina was a wonderful host. Very friendly and helpful. I inquired about where to get a birthday cake for my son and she offered to pick one up for us. My son was so happy to arrive at the house to find a cake waiting for him. So very kind.

I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a one of a kind location.

A most interesting oasis in a land of beauty

  • 5 of 5

Bettina's secluded farmhouse afforded me 3 nights of complete comfort while I explored the beautiful expanse of Sequoia national park. Bettina has loaded up this place with exceptional appointments - from interesting artwork, to substantial and eclectic reading material, to lovely spaces in which to read and hang out, to ping pong and musical instruments available for guests to play around with. The outdoor sitting area is unparalleled in its beauty and solitude-provoking appeal. The house is large and gives its guest lots of room to unwind and relax after a day's hiking. The kitchen is sizable, bright, and well-equipped with considerable amenities for preparing meals at home. The master bedroom suite is ENORMOUS, with sitting areas and a very comfortable bed that induced some great slumber. Bettina herself is a wonderful, gregarious host who was unobtrusive, yet readily available for advice, as she inhabits the adjoining property and knows the area quite well (poster child for the Three Rivers Chamber of Commerce). She kindly offered produce from her substantial garden, and generously offered us some treats - mini plums (so juicy and sweet), mulberries (I sense a new flavored vodka in my future) and fresh-cut oregano and lavender (aroma therapy, oh yeah!). How many hosts do this???

Bettina's place is quite unique - one of a kind, really. If you are tired of the run-of-the-mill rental, you needn't look any further than Bettina's farmhouse to satisfy all of your chic country living needs. Bettina has done this place up in style and you will NOT be disappointed! I cannot wait to return for another dose.
