About Rifka Several

I'm a retired teacher and curriculum consultant and have lived in Badger for over 10 years. I'm raising my grandkids who attend the mountain schools here. I live on the property so am available to guests for questions and assistance. It is very peaceful and natural at Sequoia Resort and I hope you will have a relaxing visit.

It is a nice, well stocked studio, quiet and had everything we needed. We were there the end of July

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at Sequoia Resort "Artists Studio" and feel it was everything we had hoped for. It was clean, well stocked kitchen with everything you would ever need. Convenient location to both Sequoia and King Canyon Natl. Parks. Restaurants weren't quite as close as we would have liked so two evenings, while at the natl. parks, we had dinner at the lodges before we returned to the studio for the night. It has a nice deck with a gas grill which we used. With its remote location the "dark night skies" made for great star gazing which we did every night. It was a good experience.

enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Location can't be beat. We were able to enjoy Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park with a day trip from here. The resort provided a very helpful binder and book about the local hikes and scenic car routes. I'd recommend you review that during your stay-we learned a few new hikes to come back and explore when the snow melts thanks to those resources.

The studio is beautifully done on the inside. It's not cluttered, it was very clean, and spacious for a studio rental. Can't thank you enough for accepting dogs. There's a sweet dog named Abby as well as a whole bunch of cats & kittens that snuggle around the studio. Our dog loved it here, perhaps even more than we did.

The kitchen was stocked with more than I was expecting. There's a deck with a view outside the sliding back door with a large grass field below for the dogs. The temperature control is fantastic and the place was toasty!

Only downside is the state drought-its effects tragically show on the lake on the property. Let's hope for a lot of rain and snow in 2016.

Thank you, Rifka! You were responsive and helpful. Would certainly stay again.

Secluded, Romantic Getaway Close to Kings Canyon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property for two nights at the end of our honeymoon tour of the desert and High Sierras. The property is located in the fairly remote town of Badger, about 12 miles from the entrance to Kings Canyon. We used this cabin as a basecamp to explore Kings Canyon, Sequoia National Forest and Sequoia National Parks.

When we arrived, we were greeted by Torsten, the property manager, who had just finished preparing the studio for our stay. He brought candles (knowing it was our honeymoon) and stocked the cabin with board games.

The property is large and provides ample opportunity to roam and enjoy the lake, flora, trees and animals. Early November provided for warm days and cold nights and Torsten ensured we had adequate firewood to heat the cabin.

The wood burning stove kept the cabin warm and we found the property extremely clean and well furnished. There is no cell phone reception except for Verizon subscribers, so I highly recommend paying for the optional telephone and data service, although we didn't really need it. The european kitchen is basic, but very functional and we prepared meals each night.

The drive to the property is breathtaking and not for the faint of heart, as are most roadways in and around the parks. Be sure to check out the Pinehurst Lodge (which does have a small store) for an authentic local experience. It's just a short drive up the road.

We were very well prepared for our stay and brought all necessary provisions and managed our fuel. If you've never been to this part of California before, know that the parks are BIG, the roads are exposed, and distances between towns can be far. Rent our buy tire chains (especially in fall/winter), top-off your fuel tanks, and take your time. Will be a rewarding trip!

Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. Very quiet, romantic and charming. We are looking forward to coming back!

Lovely studio getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was extremely easy to book this studio. Paying through Paypal made the transaction quick and painless. The directions might seem a little menacing, but a good map, or a GPS will get you here very easily. The entrance is really hard to miss. The studio is very cozy, and the pictures are pretty accurate. It is actually pretty spacious, and would make the perfect getaway for a couple. The management keeps the place extremely tidy, and there were tons of towels when we got there. Food and Gas are not very easy to procure around this cabin, but I'd suggest picking it up from a nearby town.

Hint: Do NOT miss out on the Lake that is part of this resort. It has a BBQ, a few sports, and swimming and boating and lots of chairs to relax by the lake side.
