Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at the farmhouse. We actually met Bettina on our way in, she suggested we pick some apricots off the tree before we unloaded all our luggage. Probably the best apricots we've ever eaten...so the whole trip started off pretty well from the beginning. We had nice relaxing experience, and it was the perfect place to stay right outside Sequoia. Bettina is a very nice and genuine lady. We were sad to leave but will hopefully be back soon!

Perfect get away for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This is a hidden jewel... My 9 and 7 years kids loved this place, and they had so much fun in this lovely farm house. We loved waking up in the morning listening the sound of water flowing down the river and birds chirping and rooster crowing... spectacular view of Sequoia in the front and crystal clear river water in the backyard with lots of fun activities throughout the house. We would love to visit again!

loved this house, a magical littlefamily get away

  • 5 of 5

Bettina's house is so lovely and we have such an amazing time. Beautiful, simple decor in a gorgeous location, we went with our one year old and he loved it: the stream, the animals, plenty of space for him to play around and space for us and our friends to relax. The beds were super comfortable as well and it was stocked with all the right amenities. Would love to go back!

Charming house close to National Park

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in this farm house. The owner is extremely welcoming and provided detailed directions and information prior to our visit. The house itself is lovely. Lots of space for all of us to spread out and very clean. The children loved visiting the donkeys and the horse. The house is in a good location for visiting Sequoia National Park, which was a snowy winter wonderland this time of year. Wonderful trip!

Fantastic base for Exploring Sequoia

  • 5 of 5

We spent nine wonderful nights at Bettina's place with my two kids, ages 8 and 5, and their grandparents visiting from Australia. The house consists of a large open room containing the dining area and kitchen that was ideal for a family. There are three bedrooms that are kept cool, which was essential during the hot part of the year when we visited.

The kids loved roaming around the grounds, feeding the donkeys and mustang, swimming in the pond, patting the dog and grazing on delicious mulberries from an enormous mulberry tree outside the house. There is a table tennis table, a small creek out the back and lots to explore. The kids loved bathing in the outdoor bath under the stars.

Bettina was a wonderful and kind host who was relaxed and accommodating with our two kids and who provided us with lots of information about the nearby attractions. The house is a great base for exploring Sequoia National Park as the entrance to Sequoia is only a bit over a 10 minute drive away. However, to get up into the trees, hiking and cooler temperatures was an hour drive up a very windy road.

The produce at the local grocery store was not great. I'd suggest coming stocked with fruit, vegetables and meat. We had a fantastic meal at Ol' Buckaroos, which was a lot of fun.

I highly recommend the Farmhouse for families.
