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 peaceful, clean and spacious mountain home was everything we needed after a wonderful day in Kings Canyon. The owner Sulfati was gracious and super thorough. She will send you maps and personal information that was extremely helpful to us. The large country kitchen was so welcoming with additional information and maps on the table for us. Beds were extra comfortable and well made. And we even were offered fresh vegetables and spices from her gardens. If we ever head back to the mesmerizing Sequoia Nevada Mtns. this is where we would stay. George and Anne from Rochester, NY
The owners were very accommodating, and the cabin was wonderful.
Mrs Harris was very nice and accommodating! Cute cabin in the woods. Nice getaway for our anniversary. Thank you!

The cabin is rustic and retains it's 1800s beginnings. Great place to stay when visiting Kings Canyon/Sequoia. Hosts are very gracious and available if needed. We took advantage of the small vegetable and herb garden provided.I recommend it and has passtimes for families. We only used the dart board. With my dominant arm injured had to use left hand (not good) but don't worry, the cabin still stands :)
The cabin might seem like it's small from the square footage, but it was plenty of space for me, my mom, my brother, and his girlfriend without ever feeling cramped and there was plenty of other bedding options for larger families. We bought all of our groceries at a grocery in Fresno like Sulfiati recommended and when we wanted to eat out, there were plenty of places in the Park. There aren't many places to fuel up for gas, but if you get desperate there is a gas station in the Sequoia National Forest, about a 20 min drive after entering the Kings Canyon gate that you can fuel up at.
The house is incredibly comfortable and Sulfiati helped with all of my requests. Even when we had a last minute addition to the people coming on our trip she was very accommodating. The house is great and close to Kings Canyon Park. It's clean, has all the ammenities that you could possibly need, plus the bonus of having a great neighbor. I highly recommend picking this cabin for your vacation.
The rustic cabin and location was just perfect!!! The cabin is rustic but that is what made it so special!! It was comfortable for 4 adults and 3 kids. Grandparents in the back bedroom, kids in bunk room and my husband and I on the pullout in the living room. The kids loved being outside playing darts and ping pong. The little garden gave us some tomatoes, a cucumber and basil for our pasta and salad dinner. The location was just outside the two parks. We did Kings Canyon one day and Sequoia the next. Sulfiati was a great host. She answered many questions before arrival and also on arrival!!! Just a word of advice - if you want to see Crystal Caves, book online in advance. It was all booked the day before we wanted to go.
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.
