Three Rivers House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Sequoia Park View House is set right on the Kaweah River, two miles from the entrance to Sequoia National Park. The spectacular views from all rooms stretch from the main fork of the Kaweah River all the way to the tops of Morro Rock and the snow capped Alta Peak in Sequoia National Park. Even the Three Rivers natives say, 'WOW, WHAT A VIEW!' when they first walk through the front door.

We do accept reservations for a two night stay during the summer and holiday season at the standard rate of $400 per night.

We now provide free long distance calling within the U.S. via our land line phone, because the service of some cell phone providers for our area is poor.

There are two bedrooms with queen beds in each and a double sized futon in the lower river room, which has a wall of windows from the floor to the vaulted ceiling 18 feet above. The upper river room shares the same vaulted ceiling and overlooks the lower river room. It has a TV/DVD/VCR and stereo, ceiling fan, and dining table and chairs. It opens into the kitchen area, which is equipped with ceiling fan, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, oven/range, and all the necessary dishes, glasswares, and cooking utensils.

The lower river room opens onto the covered upper deck, which includes a ceiling fan and the outside dining table and chairs. A lower deck is seven steps down from there and is perched over gigantic boulders on the edge of the river.

The master bedroom also has a TV/DVD/VCR, a vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan, and adjoins the spacious master bath/dressing area. The hallway bathroom has a tub and shower with a Sequoia Park view as well.

There is a gas barbeque grill on the lanai, and up a walkway you will find our horseshoe pit area and expansive views of the foothills and mountains. The house is privately situated on one and two/thirds acres at the end of a 400' paved driveway. There is satellite TV reception and a land line phone for local and free long distance calling in the U.S. This 2,100 square foot house was built in 1994 and has central air conditioning and heating

You will find sitting on the river deck so mesmerizing and relaxing that it will be hard to pull yourself away to enjoy all that Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and the Three Rivers area has to offer.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 12 days hiking in Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Mineral King Parks. It was a pleasure to return to this great home. We started and ended our days sitting on the deck enjoying the view and the sound of the river below. The home was clean, well maintained and comfortable. The temperature ranged from 65 to the upper 90s when we were there and the home remained comfortable whatever the temperature. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner and the Village Market had all the groceries we needed. I thought the prices were about the same as they are here in CT, So there was no sticker shock for us. Three rivers is a great little community. Everyone was very nice and friendly. We had a great time and I highly recommend this vacation rental property.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, our husbands, and 1 of our adult children just returned home from a wonderful stay in 3 Rivers. The house and deck provided generous accomodations. We have vacationed a lot together and this is the best place we have ever stayed. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes, linens were plentiful, and the views stunning. It was conveniently located 2 miles outside the Sequoia National Park entrance. Be advised that there is still a long drive to the park's main attractions after passing the main gate. If you plan to pack lunches and prepare meals at home, I would advise shopping before arriving at 3 Rivers. The groceries are quite pricey. You may want to bring plastic cups for smaller children. There are not many unbreakables provided. The owner and property manager were very helpful in making sure we had everything we needed.

Excellent Location & Well Stocked Kitchen

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 met with our good friends (another family of 4) for a vacation the last week of July. For a fair additional fee, we were able to book this property. The location was ideal. Directly on the river, minutes to the entrance of Sequoia National Park's Ash Mountain entrance. We went river swimming every day. The water level is lowest in the summer, so parts of the river were safe enough for our swimming kids (ages 8 and 6) and non swimming kids (ages 4.5 and 2.5), though we stayed within arms reach of each of them **at all times**. The older kids helped fashion a dam using river rocks which created a safe swimming area for the younger kids. For the more adventurous of us, we were able to go body surfing on the rocks (basically sliding down the whitewater areas where the rocks were large and smooth). Having water shoes was essential, as the rocks are slimy in places.

The house itself was as described. Clean and well cared for. The kitchen was well stocked with copious dishware and bakeware. I always bring my own chef's knife when renting a house, but there was a decent set of Ginzu knives available. The pantry had some spices and oils, though we brought our own so didn't need to use these. The bedrooms are still fairly bright despite the blinds, so if you have children who need complete darkness to go to sleep, you might bring your own blackout curtains and painter's tape, which we often do. We didn't need to do that this time because we figured it's vacation and they can stay up late a few nights. We also came during one of the hottest weeks, with temps at 106 and 108 on certain days, so the AC had a bit of trouble keeping up in the main room during the middle of the day, but were never uncomfortable.

I thought not having wifi would be challenging, but we quickly settled into it. Without wifi, working wasn't an option so it made for a true vacation. The landline was essential for staying in touch with family and our dog sitter back home, so the free US long distance was greatly appreciated.

The one thing that would have made this property better would be access to a washer and dryer. As a family with children, washer and dryer access is usually a priority for us, as it enables us to pack half as much and have clean clothes and linens throughout the trip. At least there were plenty of towels so we didn't feel like we were scrounging for clean ones.

Another great find from VRBO, on this Excellent vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our amazing trip near the end of June. We are a family of 5 (kids aged 8,6,2), and were planning to see Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. My last visit to the parks were 30 yrs ago, so it was all new again to me, and wanted to plan the most memorable trip for my family. This vacation rental just put our trip over the top... So impressive!

The home is very spacious, with lots of Windows, and great views! You can see the rushing river, and even Moro Rock. The place was very clean, comfortable, and private.

No wifi, but we did fine. Nice patio/balcony, with grill was my favorite spot.

We had 106*deg temps in Three rivers, but the AC worked well, and the river was cool.

Up in Sequoia park, it was only 75*deg, so day time spent up there was perfect.

Besides the Park, the little town has a market, and restaurants. The Lake is nearby too, good for boat rentals, fishing, etc.

Another great help was the owner, Tom... And Sheila, the property manager, who shared so much great information and tips, it made it very easy to plan out the details and schedule for each day.

Overall, excellent trip, thanks to the beautiful rental, and the people associated with it.

Thanks for the great experience!

Best Vacation Rental Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This year on Thanksgiving we decided to change the paste a little, and instead of staying in town with our families, our close friends and us rented a house in Sequoia National park. Since we both have little kids, it was somewhat risky taking this chance to be in the woods with kids and not much child activities involved.

However, upon our arrival we were amazed at how nice the place was. It is actually much bigger in person that it appears in the pictures. The bathrooms and the kitchen are very clean and the rooms are nicely decorated.

Everything is thoughtfully designed to make the visitor feel welcomed. There were lots of bored games for the kids to play.

The scenery was breathtaking. Wall to wall windows give the house a full view of the beautiful mountains and the river. It is only less than 100 feet to the river, and even our two year old princess managed to clime down. and help the guys do some fishing.

Another nice touch to the house was the little notes left all around the house telling us how to use gadgets. Mr. Meyers is very prompt on responding to all emails an answering any questions. We like to travel often, and this was one of the best vacation we had!!!

Very nice home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family of 4 and it was ideal for a Sequoia/Kings Canyon base. The house is very comfortable and very close to the Foothills visitor center. We enjoyed cooling off in the river and the picturesque views from the deck and from inside the house. It was clean and well cared for.
