About Karin Josif

Although we currently live in Kernville full time now, we used to live and work in the Los Angeles area and enjoyed bringing our children and our dogs here for the past 25 years. As a family we love all of the outdoor activities this area has to offer, especially hiking, biking, whitewater rafting and kayaking.

Karin Josif purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Karin Josif chose Kernville

We spent our honeymoon here 28 years ago, and purchased our first piece of property. Camping here when our kids were babies is one of our favorite memories. We grew to love the beauty of the area. There is so much opportunity for all kinds of outdoor activities, and plenty of time left for relaxation. We always wanted a place right on the river. We purchased this cabin in 2007 and have since done a complete renovation, both inside and out. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. This property is just a 3 hour drive from the Los Angeles area and 45 minutes from Bakersfield.

What makes this cabin unique

The obvious benefit to this property is its location. It offers the amazing sound and view of the river, with the backdrop of beautiful mountains. You will be able to access many activities just by walking outside. Bring your swim suit, fishing pole, book and cooler and spend the day at the beach that is just steps out the back door. Drive 3 miles into town, walk around the antique shops and grab a bite to eat at one of several restaurants. One of our favorite things to do is take the dogs for a hike each morning on one of many hiking trails.

Absolutely Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the home and especially the back deck/views drew us in. We knew it would be amazing but the pictures didn’t do it justice! Absolutely amazing views! Very clean and updated home. The town of Kernville is adorable, the people of Kernville are super nice and the guys at the General Store just up the road could not have been nicer and informative about fishing and the area! Great food also! We got lucky, on our last day in Kernville they opened the trail of 100 Giants for the first time this season. It was snowy, sunny, gorgeous and we were the only people there! Fantastic vacation! Thank you for opening your amazing home to us! We will be back!

Awesome LA Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Kernville. The pictures do not do this place justice! The view and location were incredible - we loved sitting on the deck watching the stars and listening to the sounds of the creek. It felt so secluded, yet also such a short drive to so many convenient things in town (grocery stores, brewery, park ranger with maps of the local hiking trails, etc.). We did two days of hiking and took advantage of the large kitchen to make dinner - it's well equipped with just about anything you might need.

We would absolutely recommend this house to others - we can't wait to make another trip later this year. Thank you for a great stay!

Beautiful house in an amazing spot

  • 5 of 5

An easy five-minute drive to the restaurants and etc. in Kernville, but the place itself is in a serene location a little upriver. The house is cozy and comfortable, with LOTS of different spaces to hang out both indoors and out. Good hiking trails are nearby, and best of all the house is right on the river with quick access to a sweet little beach and swimming spot. This is a perfect place to stay on the Kern.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend a wonderful week here. The house was perfect for us. I enjoy cooking and the kitchen was great, with high end appliances, kitchen ware and even decent cutting knives. The back deck view of the mountains and river were perfect for enjoying an afternoon glass of wine.

There is a ton of outdoor activity close by, so you can mix a morning of exercise and a chill afternoon.

We will definitely plan on a return visit again.

Very Nice Kernville Basecamp

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome, super clean, great views and privacy. Its 2 small bedrooms and 1 bath so rather cozy for 2 couples in those areas but very spacious kitchen, 2 living rooms and great deck and outdoor space give plenty of room. The kitchen is well set up for cooking and there is a big outdoor BBQ. The setting is gorgeous and there are plenty of views of it from most rooms.

Map

Immediately from this property is fishing, hiking, rafting, kayaking and mountain biking. No need to drive anywhere.....it's all right outside your back door. Also in the small town of Riverkern, a few hundred yards from the home, is the Riverkern General Store. They will have all the basic essentials. Great tri-tip sandwiches, soft drinks, beer, fishing gear, and other miscellaneous items you may need.
