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 Kings Canyon

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.

A terrific place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here!! The location is perfect not far outside Sequoia NP and the setting is so beautiful and serene. My only regret is that, since we were hiking all day, we didn't have more time to hang around the house and relax. Highly recommend this place.

It's like your Grandma's cabin, frozen in time

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was cozy, simply furnished but had all the amenities one would need. New flooring and comfortable beds. The cabin has a small TV with a selection of DVDs. The hostess was warm and friendly. It is located on a beautiful mountain with great views on several acres. No grocery or other stores are anywhere nearby, so come with your own supplies. A rustic restaurant/ bar is nearby.

The cabin is conveniently located just a few miles outside Kings Canyon National Park, and is an ideal location. The hostess was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Pinehurst Cabin was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

While visiting King's Canyon we stayed at the Pinehurst cabin and it was great for our family of six. After driving and walking all day we checked in the cabin and the kids (8, 5, 3 and 2) played in the back and ran in and out of the cabin for a few hours. We really wished we could have stayed a few more nights. We brought food to cook in the kitchen and had a lovely steak and salad that night. We played Connect 4, Jenga, Dominos and ping-pong with our kids. We topped it off with a movie before bed that we couldn't finish because we were so exhausted. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel experience this will not be for you but if you're looking for a place to take your muddy hiking boots off at the door, light the fire stove and relax with your family in an old cabin then this is it. My kids kept saying it reminded them of their great-granny's home. There is no finer compliment than that! The owners, Sulfiati and Sharif, are kind and most accommodating. We didn't need anything while were stayed but I would not have hesitated to ask as they were so welcoming while respecting our privacy. My kids cried and complained the 4 hours home because we could not stay longer. Great place for families that need to stretch out and relax.

Peaceful setting, great location near Kings Canyon

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here on our visit to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. It is located toward the General Grant Tree entrance of Kings Canyon, which made it possible for us to split our visit over 2 days at the parks instead of one.

The cabin itself is very rustic, the kitchen was much better equipped than most. The owners live next door (on another property) and are very helpful -but not at all nosy. She had laid a fire for us the first night, which we enjoyed very much.

The grounds are gorgeous in the spring, I think our daughter liked playing in the yard more than visiting the National Park :-)

Very relaxing after a lot of driving. We hope to come here again soon!

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.
