This beautifully remodeled riverfront home is just what you need for your vacation 'base camp.' Play hard all day, then come home and relax in your cabin on the majestic Kern River. Listen to the river flow day and night as it puts you into a deep and restful sleep. This home has been meticulously rebuilt by the owners who have spent more than 25 years in this recreation mecca. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath home is very comfortable and functional and offers a full service kitchen which opens onto a great room. This area has plenty to offer for the avid adventurer/nature lover, most of which can be accessed right out the back door. Relax and enjoy the back deck overlooking the Kern with your favorite beverage and a good book.

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
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.
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.
We had a wonderful time at The River House. The property was immaculate and the views spectacular. Really felt like a nice escape to the mountains. We brought our daughter (age 3) and dog to the snow for the first time and the house and the snow did not disappoint! Great places to eat in town and everyone is very friendly. House was perfect for our family with all that we needed and then some. We will definitely be back!
Everything as expected plus . We have stayed here multiple times and are still amazed how well taken care of this home is
This house is beautiful and had everything I could need. The backyard was big and backed to the river. There's a nice little trail along it that leads to many fishing spots.The yard also had two nice picnic benches that I painted on. The house itself was super nice. The couch was so comfortable!! The only thing I was upset about was I wanted to play a board game at night and couldn't find any. Then when I was packing up, I looked in the bedroom closet and it had TONS of games. I wish I had thought to look there!
Internet was good and the kitchen well stocked.
We had a totally great experience at the cabin on the river! There was a possible scare with the fires nearby, but we came anyway and to our surprise, we had very little effect from them. We loved the amazing view from our back porch balcony and the sound of the river rapids each day. The people could not have been friendlier in the area, at all restaurants and the market. Our cabin was in perfect line to start rapid tubing at Bubbles Beach and end up back at home or to keep going to the Curve with a small walk back. We are already looking to see when we can come back and just relax. Such a beautiful place. :)
This was a wonderful vacation home. My wife and I have been to Kernville three times in VRBO homes, and I have to say that this was the best owner yet. They respond quickly to any request (not that you will need much, everything is well taken care of).
The property itself is very updated and has all of the amenities you will need. It's close to town and a very short walk to the river. I can't say I noticed this in the property description, but there is a small private beach only a couple of hundred yards away. However, you can get to the river which is only 50 feet off the back porch and there are a few good spots to fall in and cool off.
Our deposit was returned within two hours of checking out of the house, and we had a fabulous week. Well worth the price!
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.
