A classic mountain cabin, shaded by tall pines, and with a covered front porch. Queen bedroom with separate entrance, inner bedroom with bunks and sofa bed can sleep 2 adults, 2 children, living room has queen sofa bed, and a hassock that makes into a twin bed, dvd player and monitor, fully equipped kitchen, and remodeled bathroom (shower). Pine paneled through much of house. Small garden, porch great for kids to play. All remodeled recently and kid friendly. Owners live next door, and can advise where to go in the parks and what nearby activities families will enjoy. The cabin is set up for 7 adults plus one or two children on the small sofa bed in the bunk bedroom.
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
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.
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.

The cabin sits on a beautiful piece of property overlooking a small pond and a running creek. The hosts were attentive and courteous, and pointed out local points of interest and key pieces of information (AT&T gets zero service in the area - download the area to google maps for Offline Mode so you can still use your GPS), but were never intrusive. Our only regret was that we couldnt stay longer.
What a beautiful cabin! My family stayed for such a short amount of time but were still able to see what a beautiful place and location it was. The cabin itself is rustic and beautifully decorated and makes you feel right at home. The location is lovely and quiet which is perfect for a getaway. The owners are just as lovely they are incredibly helpful and accommodating answering and helping out with every question.
This is the perfect place for a nice getaway!
I booked the cabin for my family (parents, aunt and husband) for our short trip to Kings Canyon. We found it to be comfortable, clean and bit rustic, but for the price, it was a great value. The beds were comfortable and the wood stove heated up the home, no problem. We also enjoyed playing games around the big kitchen table at night, and playing ping pong and darts outside before dark. The only annoyance we had were the 2-3 dogs living next door who barked nonstop at us most of the time we were outside. Finally, on the last night, the owner chose to bring them in, which helped immensely.
The cabin is super close to a local lodge where we had a tasty dinner and drinks. Also the Dry Creek drive home to LA was absolutely stunning. With the recent rain, the hills were bright green and there were wild flowers everywhere!
Great cabin, even better than expected my family and I had a great time. We will be back soon
This cabin was everything it was advertised to be and more. Very rustic, very warm. The wood burning stove was a wonderful touch. The access to the parks was great and allowed a lot of versatility. The owners were also very helpful and sweet. Would certainly recommend to friends! Thank you for letting us stay at your cabin!
This cabin was a great location for exploring the northern parts of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Forest. The hosts were super communicative and very helpful. The cabin is on the host's property and they take great care of it, it was clean and fully stocked.
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.
