Welcome to this 5 acre riverfront property in beautiful Three Rivers, California…the gateway to Sequoia National Park and home of the largest trees in the world. Swim, float, fish or just sit on the large porch and enjoy the sights and sounds of the river year around. Enjoy this home on one of the best and most private swimming spots on the North Fork of the Kaweah River…courtesy of an old historic rock dam that creates your perfect swimming and floating area.

We are only minutes from the village of Three Rivers where you can find grocery stores, gas stations, art studios, restaurants, and shops. Another 10 minutes and you arrive at the main entrance to Sequoia National Park, home of the Giant Sequoia Trees, Crescent Meadows, Moro Rock and unparalleled wilderness country.

This casual air-conditioned home has two bedrooms (with 1 king and 2 twin beds) and one bathroom with walk-in shower. A total of 4-7 people can be accommodated utilizing the additional facilities provided in the family room (sofa and mattress pads). This North Fork Kaweah River gem includes kitchen with refrigerator, oven, stovetop, microwave, DVD/TV player, BBQ, fire pit, games and wireless Internet service via Hughes satellite.

Hiking, river rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding and boating are among the activities that are available close by. Or just relax at your “ranch” and listen to the river flow by, swim, nap in the hammock, stargaze and enjoy nature. Regardless of the season, this beautiful location will become a regular “must stay” on your annual calendar providing an unequaled relaxed setting for couples, families, and small groups alike.

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation and communion with Nature look no further than here on the North Fork of the Kaweah River. Located in the western foothills of the Central California Sierra Mountains, it’s less than four hours from Los Angeles and the Bay Area and four and a half hours from San Francisco. Situated among the oaks, sycamores, and cedars, this river gem gives you the perfect mix of shade and sun allowing you to explore 1000 feet of river habitat on this 5 acre ranch.

Come in the Summer and enjoy many hours of swimming, floating, fishing, and BBQ’ing in your own completely private stretch of river. Or visit nearby Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park’s giant trees, Moro Rock, Crystal Caves, hiking trails, and more. In the Fall, enjoy fishing and the sounds of the river amid the colors and fall of the leaves. In Wintertime enjoy the cozy fireplace while watching the river flow by or spend the day in the Park cross country skiing or just playing in the snow. In the Spring enjoy the cool air, abundant wildflowers, green hillsides, and sound of the rushing water. Hike, bike, or drive the area to discover what you enjoy the most.

Why The Owner chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We have enjoyed this property as a 'family compound' since we purchased it in 2000. We love this area and this property is simply a slice of heaven.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy each of the unique seasons the area has to offer. We enjoy swimming and floating on the river during the summer...there is no better place to be found. Regardless of the season, the year-round flow of the river is absolutely beautiful and relaxing.

Breathtaking Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed and Steve & Elaine's place. I must say the view we woke up to was beautiful and laying out on the rafts for hours at a time was so relaxing. Overall the place had EVERYTHING we needed and then some. We definitely over packed. I would go here all year round if we could.I think what we loved the most was having the ability to NOT give the kids the WiFi password. It forced everyone OFF of social media and allowed us some true old fashion family time!!

I HIGHLY recommend their place if your looking for some quality time with your kids or even just an adult getaway. :-)

Beautiful, peaceful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is very welcoming and well stocked for a family retreat. The scene is so serene and isolated. My favorite part was the clean, inviting river. We hope to get back someday for a longer stay.

More then we could of asked for...

  • 5 of 5

We took my sister up here after her cancer treatment. Its just what we all needed. A break from reality. A place to recharge. All we needed was food and ourselves as the house had everything. Our three favorite things were the fireplace, the river 10ft from our back door, and the propane grill we cooked most of our meals on. If you're looking for a place to getaway, this is it.

5 star for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time making memories with our Clan. Tons to do just around the cabin: float the river out back, catch frogs, horseshoes, relax in the hammock. Not to mention all the other stuff we did during our stay. Great for an action packed vaca.

property could use slight improvement, but overall enjoyed our stay there. Lucky to see a bear on the property in the three days we spent there, even though we were out all day. Surrounding area spectacular, would stay again and recommend to others.
