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 Lake Isabella

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.

Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last few days at the beautiful Riverfront Home. This was a return visit for us, bringing our adult daughter and dachshund with us. It was a lovely trip. The weather was pleasant and we stayed comfortable throughout our trip.

This wonderful home is perfect in every way, the owners have thought of every detail!

Thank you Karin and Tobin for sharing your lovely home!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the home. It was immaculately kept, cozy and comfortable. Karin was very responsive and our little family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have a 16 month old and as a mama bear, I felt very comfortable having the little one exploring through the house, including the beautiful deck!!! We hope to be back as regulars!

Best rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented a good number of VRBOs by now and, I'm going to admit, we're picky. And this home is hands down the best we've ever stayed in, both inside and out! Inside, every last detail was considered, every possible need anticipated, lots of open space, and every nook and cranny super clean. I'm a clean freak and was in awe of this place. The beautiful views out to the mountains and river were so relaxing that I felt being inside the home was an equally enjoyable part of the vacation. Outside, we loved playing in the yard and river with our pup and drinking our morning cup of coffee on the back porch. This place was seriously magical.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I'll keep this brief because the other 5-star reviews before this capture all of the positive aspects of this beautiful home. To begin, the location is idyllic. Everything is perfectly located from the river to the market a short walk down the road. The interior is beautiful; from the colors, to the counter tops, to the appliances, everything caters to your needs. And lastly, the quality of the overall property shines through. The feeling of seclusion abounds with every moment.

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.
