About Carolyn Jack

I am semi-retired. Mother of 3 daughters and 2 sons. The sons and one daughter are step but I don't like to use that word. I have 9 grand-children. I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. where I reside now with my husband and our 3 dogs, Harley, Candie, and a newly adopted stray female my son named Peanut butter because she would come to him if he held out his peanut butter sandwich. This home was left to me by my father who pasted away in 2012. It was his wish for me to keep it to use as a peaceful getaway for my husband and I as well as for our kids and grand-kids. I decided to rent it out as a vacation home so I can support it since I have found that the utilities and the water are quite pricey in the Kern river valley. I also like to do my part to encourage visitors to Kernville it is a town near and dear to my heart. My parents were very active in the community. I want Kernville to thrive. So we have a peaceful town to come to when we need to get away.

Carolyn Jack purchased this house in 2012

Why Carolyn Jack chose Lake Isabella

Kernville is a beautiful town with friendly people. This little neighborhood where the house is located is a quiet peaceful place. It is 1/2 block from the Kern river so you can here the river from the back patio. The house is about 1 mile from downtown Kernville. This place has all the comforts of home. We have it the way we like it also because we stay here ourselves when we get the chance.

What makes this house unique

Kernville is a beautiful little town. It still has the small town feel and the friendly people in it. They have their own brewery "The Kern River Brewery" is a great place to enjoy your favorite ale and pub food. Ewing's on the Kern is a wonderful restaurant that has reopened and is beautiful inside and has a gorgeous view of the river and the town from most any seat. The food is excellent and the service is great. The Kernville Museum is a fantastic place to learn about the beginnings of the Kern river valley and the generations that developed it. Also about the movies that were made in the area and much, much, more.

Overall, very pleasant and I would recommend!

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable house in a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance to the beach and Carolyn was very helpful and accommodating. My only concern is that there is no bathroom door on the master bathroom and the toilet is visible as you enter the bedroom. Without a locking bedroom door, using this bathroom privately is nil. Also, there were some discrepancies in the written description and terms and amenities compared to reality which Carolyn and I worked through together. Part of this is probably due to it being new to the market of vacation rentals.

Therefore, it was a good rental and I would recommend it to others.

We Love Kernville. so whenever an opportunity comes up, we come here, this was the 4th time our group of 11 came here.

This house was actually, very comfortable and cozy, with plenty of bedding , towels,

dishes, utensils, close enough to the river( we know there would not be as much water in the river as past time, but hopefully with the new EL NINIYO, all will be OK.

Simply we had everything we needed or looked for, of course thanks to Carolyn, who was very helpful and cooperative from the beginning to the end of our trip.

With much appreciation.

4th of July get away

  • 5 of 5

Nice and quiet neighborhood with the Kern River right down the street and downtown Kernville short drive away. The owners have it clean and comfortable with all the needs away from home. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Yes our vacation home is in what we consider a perfect peaceful spot. Sometimes we can hear the river which is a 1/ 2 block away and downtown Kernville about a mile away. We like to keep the place as we would like when we stay there. We want our guest to be comfortable so they want to be repeat visitors.

The house was very comfortable and had great amenities. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is in a great location, near the river and the center of town.
