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.

Beautiful Riverfront Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a birthday weekend and it was just perfect! We were going to cook one night and go out to dinner in Kernville the second night. We wound up cooking both nights as the kitchen was beautifully appointed and the view from the outdoor deck couldn't be beat. Go out and enjoy nature on the Kern river. We will be back!

Our Mountain Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely home to stay. The decor was very well done and comfortable, anything you needed was there and very clean. Always useful to have WiFi when combining work and vacation. We can't wait until our next visit. The hosts were excellent in responding to our needs, perhaps we can meet them next visit. Mary And David G., California

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house and fantastic deck overlooking the river. The swamp cooler is amazing—wish we could use them in less arid climates too. The kitchen has every supply you could need if you wanted to cook and there are plenty of board games in the closet and books to enjoy. We much appreciate the easy check-in, check-out and quick deposit refund!

Great Cabin & Sequoia adventure

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is beautiful, with everything you could need - including board games. We loved the kitchen and the views! Location is perfect to venture to Lake Isabelle or up through the Sequoias. Beds are comfortable. Cabin stayed nice and cool. Kern River is too rough this season, but we still put our toes in after long days of hiking.

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.
