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.
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.
My family and I had a great time here. Even though we got hit by a storm, we had plenty to do. There were several family board games, including our favorite "Connect four". The porch was pretty big, we were able to stay out of the rain and shoot some darts and play a little ping pong. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need. Also, a shelf with little things you might forget, like razors (came in handy). The wood stove really warms the entire cabin. All the beds were very comfortable. The owners were nice enough to let us roam around the property to stretch our legs when the rain stopped. Very relaxing weekend. would recommend it.
These is one of the best experiences I have ever had . It was one of the best place I ever been for me and my family
The cabin has a rustic feel to it and decorated tastefully by the owners. Sulfati is very warm and friendly and very eager to help.
The cabin is very close to the mountains and General Grant tree making it an ideal location for a visit to Kings Canyon National Park. There is a table tennis, ping pong table and dart outside the cabin that was a hit with my kids. There is a wood burning stove that quickly heats up the entire cabin. Kitchen is well stocked and very convenient. There was a fair bit of snow just outside the cabin and Sulfati lent us a sleigh that my kids thoroughly enjoyed. We would definetely go back to the cabin and I would highly recommend this to a group of up to 6-8 people.
Stayed at the cabin for a birthday trip with family and friends, 8 people total. Sulfiati is extremely friendly and accommodating and had a solution for our every need. The cabin is in great shape and contains a very efficient wood burning stove that heats the entire cabin quickly, very useful during the winter. The grill pit purposed as a bon fire pit was perfect for sitting around a fire at night time. There was no problem sleeping 8 in this cabin comfortably and plenty of space for everyone to sit around the dinner table. The outside activities like ping-pong and darts were great to keep my family and friends entertained. In terms of location, the cabin is very easy to find and is only a short distance away from the plethora of attractions in Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend for parties of any size up to 8.
We liked the house a lot. It's super cozy for friends and family. It's located in a secluded and quiet area, which is close to the general grant tree. The host is very helpful and warm. Highly recommended for family who would like to have a getaway vacation.
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.
