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.

Very peaceful and quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of wildlife to observe from the porch area and my kids really enjoyed petting the friendly cat that visited us. Ping pong table and fans (it was hot when we visited) were a nice bonus. Sulfiata was a great host and the cabin location was ideal for our visits to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Our only complaint was that the previous renters didn't leave the dishes very clean so we washed what we needed before using.

Not what we expected based on the pictures!

  • 3 of 5

The Cabin was very clean! The beds are comfortable. The surroundings are not quiet the welcoming to the the woods we expected. Barking dogs next door every time you tried to go outside and enjoy the view. There was a car and a Trailer parked on each side of the gate to enter the cabin. It was hard to drive in and out with our Truck. We had some questions for the owner when we arrived, I tried calling but had no service. I decided to go next door to talk to them. The dogs in the house did not sound so welcoming, the window was opened. I could see people in the house. When I tried to communicate with them they did not respond to me at all. I found a small note on the door stating that if I had any questions I could call or text the owner . That was very hard to do since we did not have service at all. I do have to say that anytime I had a question the owner did reply via e-amil. ( that was before we arrived)

Owner's Response: I called to get more details on the difficulties so that I could fix them I don't know why I didn't hear you at the door. Usually I come over to greet people but I had been at a meeting, and when I came by to see you I saw your van leaving to go out to dinner. Since you were there for one night and left early that was my only chance to talk to you. I will change the note on the door...that was meant for mailmen, etc. so they could text my cell phone. I am glad you agree that the cabin was very clean inside and the beds were comfortable, About dogs, I made sure that there was not a problem with barking dogs at night. It was my dog, who is almost always in the house who worried you at 6:30 a.m.....I had let him out just for a bit thinking no one would be up yet. I will keep a better eye on that. From what you said on the phone It seems this was the only time you were bothered. It seems that the most bothersome thing was that my husband had parked a car in a way that made a narrow entrance. He sure won't do that again! And that the property was not lush and green. It does look like that in spring but it does get very dry here in the summer and we can't water this large property. But we will try to keep it better trimmed up.

Charming cabin!

Worked great for us as a base for exploring Sequoia and Kings Canyon.

The kids enjoyed playing darts and ping pong while we were here.

Cute, rustic cabin with ameneties

  • 5 of 5

It's a great place for families to stay if you are looking for a rustic experience with your kids but need things like hot water & a kitchen. Amenties are exactly as advertised.

Sulfiati nice & helpful with what to do in the area. Access to both parks is easy & there are plenty of activities in Kings Canyon & Sequoia for small children to enjoy

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.
