It will quickly become your favorite get-away located in the foothills below Sequoia and Kings National Park. It is ideally situated to accommodate day excursions for site seeing adventures, but the grounds and accommodations at the DaVidgil House are a destination in themselves. One can sun bathe on the edge of the river, dine under the stars, and walk among the sycamores; listen and see hawks and quail, and every now and then catch sight of the heron going up or down river. There is an an abundance of wildlife.

The Studio vacation rental is an independent dwelling taking up the complete bottom floor. The Upstairs Suite is a spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with exquisite views, and all the comforts of home. DaVidgil House Complete secures the entire accommodation for an extended familiy and / or friends, all of which is surrounded with walkways, outside dining areas, gardens, and just a few paces farther, a deck overlooking the South Fork River. Often times, the wayfarer can see wild ducks, deer, mountain lions, bears, bob cats, possums, skunks, snakes, squirrels, to name just a few, and the insect life is teaming with energy. The DaVidgil House is located approximately 5 miles from Lake Kaweah, 10 miles from the Entrance to Sequoia National Park (which is home to the world's largest living things - Giant Sequoia Redwood Trees), 255 miles north of Los Angels, 265 miles south of San Francisco, and 225 miles east of the Pacific coast. In other words, centrally located for your vacation needs.

About Cara

This house was built by an artist, designer, woodworker, the daughter of a building contractor; and an environmental scientist, artisan builder, and the son of a water/civil engineer. With eyes for detail, an artistic bent, and the love of nature, DaVidgil House is well appointed, luxurious, and unlike anything else.

Cara purchased this house in 2016

Why Cara chose Gold Country / High Sierra

This property has a perfect location nestled in the Canyon with the South Fork River running right through it. The wild life is abundant and the natural surroundings majestic and gorgeous.

What makes this house unique

The benefit of staying at the DaVidgil House is not only the luxurious ambiance, but how centrally located it is, in as far as it is conveniently close to town, Sequoia National Park, Lake Kaweah, and numerous other sites while remaining remote and peaceful in its location.

This house is MAGICAL hideaway. We just had a 3 day stay with 2 other families. We were all looking for a sanctuary to decompress from city life and this is exactly what this house provided us with. It's close to markets, a few restaurants there are in three rivers and also easily accessible to Sequioa National Park. All the rooms were wonderful. We rented the entire house. Every single room has been weaved with so much love, the details, the decor. The house was spotless and well maintained. There is a full kitchen in the upper suite and BBQ on the porch for cooking. Greg & Lona were lovely and so accommodating and pleasant to converse with. I'd love to come back and stay there again!

Perfect House, Perfecvt Location, Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED and truely enjoyed our stay in what I like to call the tree house. We rented the top of the house and felt like we were sitting in the trees when we looked out the kitchen windows. My daughter and I have a love of art and are also artists and we really enjoyed staying in a one of a kind work of art. Every detail is so well planned out and it is just spectacular.

The location was also perfect for daily visits to Sequioa National Park. The house was well appointed and had everything we needed and it was so lovely to sit one night witha beverage near the river enjoying the outside too. We also really enjoyed Lona and Greg. They were so pleasant to talk to and we felt like we were part of the family. This is THE best VRBO rental we have found over the years.

The Davidgil house is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stay in a work of art. The home is immaculate and absolutely beautiful. The amount of detail put into the home is mesmerizing and my husband and I would wonder around the house for hours marveling over the artistic detail of the home which the owners built themselves. The property itself is equally gorgeous and my family loved spending time in the huge yard and dangling our feet in the pristine river running through the property. The home had everything one could want or need in a vacation home and the owners are the nicest and most down to earth people. They made us feel right at home. If you want a peaceful retreat this is the spot to be.

Perfect place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

My Fiance and I stayed in the studio of the Davidgil house as bday vacation for me. We had the best time, and I will never forget the peace and serenity I felt there. We woke up and had our coffee by the river every morning, and ending our evenings with a campfire and listening to music all weekend long. Greg and Lona were the most gracious hosts, and we felt a bond with them right away. If all goes well I plan to go back and have a small wedding at the property, its just THAT GORGEOUS!

Wondeful home, Wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed with Lona and Greg in late August for four nights. This home is beautiful and warm. Lona has put her heart and soul into creating a magical space. She has an incredible eye for detail and beauty. Although we were disappointed that the river running through their back yard had dried up due to severe drought conditions, this did not hamper our stay. There are plenty of great watering holes and beautiful spots to get your feet wet close to the home. The highlight of our stay was when we were asked to stay for dinner with our hosts and their friends visiting from Hawaii. A beautiful paella and other delicious foods. Wonderful hosts and a beautiful home.

Peaceful retreat right on the river!

  • 5 of 5

This unique custom home is right on the river and is just a few miles down the road from the entrance to Sequoia National Park. Three Rivers is a quaint little town with all the amenities one would require for a restful retreat from the city. With incredible views of the river and the mountains this home did not disappoint. The home itself had everything you needed plus it was clean and well kept. Were from Florida, stayed here a couple days to see the Giant Sequoias and then headed off to San Francisco for a few days. We all wished we had just stayed here for the entire trip! We definitely will plan another trip here again. If your looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and reconnect with nature in the comfort of a home, this is the place to go!
