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.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very comfortable and nice. If you're looking for posh this isn't it but we weren't and this cabin met our needs nicely. Our host made a visit to make sure we were set and had what we needed and she filled the humming bird feeder every day so we could enjoy the humming birds (sometimes 20 at a time). The beds are very comfortable and was nice after a long day of hiking in Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon. We had no TV but they have a nice collection of movies. Wifi is available but spotty. If you're looking to be off the grid for a while it's perfect. Make sure you get your groceries and gas before you arrive as you'll be at least 1/2 hour away from services. Overall, I'd rate our stay 5 stars. Exactly what we expected and it met our needs perfectly. Thank you so much to our host for a wonderful week.

Such a great place

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so adorable and such a great place to stay. The host walked over the morning after we arrived to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed, which was so nice. Such a lovely peaceful area and easy to get to the Kings Canyon National Park entrance.

Will definitely stay there again.

Rustic and close to national park

  • 4 of 5

Quaint and comfortable rustic cabin. Very close to Kings Canyon entrance if you plan to spend a lot of time in the park. Lovely outdoor seating area with wildlife and hummingbirds galore. Owners sent great directions with landmarks to locate entrance. Keep in mind it is rustic and plan accordingly. Single stall shower could use a shelf or someplace to put shampoo as it's tight and a little dark.

Great location to Kings and Sequoia. Affordable.

  • 3 of 5

Sulfiati is very friendly and attended to our needs. We would give a 4 star but first would need a thorough cleaning

Owner's Response: This is confusing to me because many people have said it is very clean. We work for three to four hours to prepare the cabin for each new group. I don't know what was unsatisfactory so it is hard for me to make it better.

Great place to stay during our visit to National Parks

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are just back from our trip to Sequoia and Kings Canyon, and we had a great stay at Sulfiati & Sharif's cabin. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we were able to enjoy several home cooked meals on the front porch. The bunk beds were a big hit with our two young kids, as were the hummingbird feeder out front and the neighbor's goats. :)

Sulfiati was extremely responsive during booking and in the lead-up to our arrival. And Sharif even stayed up late to welcome us after a long day of driving. I would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the area.

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.
