About Sulfiati and Sharif Harris

Mr. and Mrs. Harris live next door to the cabin. Mr. Harris is a retired realtor, and Mrs. Harris runs the after school program at the local K-8 school. In the summer she runs Camp Badger (see http://www.campbadger.com) . We moved to this area about 14 years ago and love the quiet, small country town atmosphere. We can tell you what places to go up in the parks and around in this area, and will be easily available to respond to any needs you might have. Our daughter and family recently lived in this cabin. It has just been completely remodeled, with all new floors (kid friendly vinyl plank that looks like wood), new bathroom fixtures, etc. The cabin was built in 1938 and is authentic, with redwood shake siding, unfinished tree trunks supporting the porch, old-fashioned glass doorknobs, and lots of pine paneling.

Sulfiati and Sharif Harris purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Sulfiati and Sharif Harris chose Pinehurst

Staying in this cabin is like going back to a simpler time. It is decorated in a way that is authentic to an old-time cabin in the mountains. Even the china, glasses and kitchen tools are authentic to an earlier era. You will know you are in the mountains of California.....not in a standard motel that could be anywhere.

What makes this cabin unique

The large,cool front porch is a great place to relax and listen to the frogs at night, also wonderful for soaking up kid energy with the ping pong table and darts. We have a collection of board games in the cabin, and also a large monitor with a dvd player and a modest collection of dvd's the family will enjoy.

Our cabin is 20 minutes from the north entrance to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks, an hour east of Fresno, California. We have a map with great places to go in the parks in the photo gallery on our listing. The Grants Grove visitor center is in the parks about 10 minutes from the entrance. They have a restaurant, museum, general store and post office, and it is a short drive to the General Grant tree.

If you go further up that road, which is a continuation of Hwy 180 you will drive along the canyon and eventually descend the canyon and drive along the Kings River. You will go by Boyden Caverns, where you can stop and take a 40 minute tour. There is a gift shop, and then a climb up into the entrance.

Continue up Hwy 180 and you will come to Grizzly Falls, just off the road on the left. A very tall waterfall with a picnic area and restrooms...a great place to stop for a break. There is another visitor's center, Cedar Grove, after that off the road on the left.

Continue on about 10 miles and you will come to a favorite place, Zumwaldt Meadows. Park in the lot (there are restrooms there), and then walk along the river to the right and you will come to a bridge across the river and a wonderful rocky beach where you can wade and swim in the river. There is a loop trail which takes you through a meadow, and around and up along the rocks, and back to the beach.

Back down at the entrance to the Parks: If you turn right at the entrance to the Parks you will go down to Sequoia National Parks. This will lead you first to the back entrance to Hume Lake beach, great for swimming in the summer, and then to the trailheads for various hikes. Further down you will go by the General Sherman Tree, and then to Lodgepole Visitor Center, which has a museum, large shop, and restaurant, and is adjacent to the trailhead to Tokopah Falls. Past this is the road to Moro Rock and then to Crystal Cave. Further along you will eventually come out into the town of Three Rivers.

Cozy cabin and excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here! The cabin was wonderful with everything we could possibly need and in an ideal location for our group to explore Kings Canyon. The hosts were more than accommodating and really made everyone feel welcome while also providing us with privacy. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Rustic, Clean, Sequoia

  • 5 of 5

It is great having the "Entering Sequoia" sign opposite the driveway. It provided relief for our late arrival. The drive is steep and the cabin gives a rough first impression (shown in the pictures). But it is clean and the owner is wonderful. We had no issues and good communication to accommodate the late arrival.

If you are looking for a fancy hotel, this is not for you. If you want clean, convenient accommodations at the entry to Sequoia/King's Canyon, you might want to consider this place. The wifi is weak as stated. You have to go through the bunk bed room to get to the main bedroom where the wifi can connect. ATT has no coverage. The shower is a bit tight. So... fancy hotel? No. If you've ever camped and found that acceptable, you'd find this place to be paradise.

Clean, great owner with unimpeded access. Check the books about history of the area on the shelf. And look up at the stars. If you are searching for a cabin and want to experience Sequoia, you have a safe bet here. Thanks for the good experience. I really appreciate the value of a good, honest owner after experiencing Tecopa... but that is another review that might get written.

Cozy get away

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable stay in a cottage surrounded by trees and peacefulness. They supply all your linens and cooking utensils so bring your own food and you're set for a relaxing stay. They are close to Kings Canyon so you can spend your day there and come back for a restful evening.

Comfortable Vintage Cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Very cute cabin. It has a rustic cabin look and has some antique finishes, but with plenty of modern comforts. My wife and I stayed here for a week while we explored Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. It was a wonderful place to come back to each night and is a short drive from the park. The owners met us when we came up the driveway and gave us a tour of the cabin. They are very nice and are available to help out with any of your needs. There is an apple orchard on the property that we were able to explore and pick some apples. Over all I would highly recommend this cabin.

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for staying in Kings Canyon. Fabulous nature setting. The cottage and interior is rather simple but you‘ll find everything you need. The real attraction is the surrounding and the proximity to the National Parks. Highly recommended!
