Location, location, location!!
Riverkern is a quiet residential area that many professional locals (law enforcement, forest service, fire department) choose to live because of the quality of life in the area. It's the last residential area going upstream towards the high country, and only three miles from Kernville.
Please note: This is NOT A PARTY ZONE, but a great location as a base for hiking, fishing, boating, and enjoying the great outdoors.
Clean, spacious, great patio for bbqing, close to the river, quiet residential neighborhood. Adjacent large lot for boat, trailers, etc with easy turnaround.
grest place. Clean and fully stocked. Definitely take advantage of bubbles beach.
Very happy. Nice and peaceful neighborhood. Kids loved the space. It was a very nice vacation for us. Central location between town and river.
The property worked perfectly for us. Our group consisted of two couples and a teen. The house is not fancy, but who wants fancy when you are hiking and tubing? There is plenty of bedding, decently appointed kitchen, and a spacious living room. We used the grill both nights and were able to watch the opening of the college football season. The swamp cooler kept us comfortable in the summer heat and the misters are a great touch.
Best of all the house is walking distance from a beach that normally has limited access to locals only. Even on Labor Day weekend it wasn't too crowded and we were able to paddle and float in our tubes.
Chris was prompt and responsive and everything matched what he said.
Our family had an incredible experience at this beautiful home. The location is perfect as it is walking distance to the river, a local grocery store, and restaurants. Everything was provided, including kitchen supplies, plenty of towels, and linen. The house was very clean and comfortable. Chris was so responsive and answered all of our questions. I cannot thank him enough for giving us such a rich experience for our family reunion. The river was filled with fish and we caught trout daily, which was a dream come true for my husband. The kids loved Bubbles beach and the grandparents loved sitting on the porch relaxing. We already miss our stay there and will definitely be back!
I was visited Kernville 5years ago with my mom & friends. All of us, has good memory and miss always.

We had a great time fishing in the area over the weekend. The house had everything we needed, including 2 bbq grills. The owner was very easy to work with.
