Shady Glen (Quiet Log Cabin, nestled among the Oak and Cedar trees

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Spacious 840 sq. ft. log cabin with large bedroom loft near Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. The forest belt of the western Sierra Nevada begins here and extends upward into the mature giant Sequoia groves and the cool realms of red fir and lodgepole pine. In the mild climate of the Pinehurst area. This location provides seclusion and privacy with a feel of living in the forest, and the property includes a seasonal creek. The mountain environment is extended indoors with furnishing of wood and stone themes. The log walls and steeply pitched roof of this cabin blend perfectly with the surroundings.

While sitting on the outdoor deck, you will be surrounded by mature ceder and oak trees and have a view toward the creek bottom, habitat for numerous wild birds including Steller jays and acorn woodpecker. A short walk on the creekside trail provides blackberry picking opportunities, or sit under the sprawling canopy of the mature Valley Oaks and listen to the wind.

If there will be more then two adults guest 13 and older staying, there will be an extra $15.00 per person per night, please be up front with the amount of people staying.

Pet's are welcome, I charge $25.00 per night per pet.

Pets most be will behaved HOUSE BROKEN and non-chewers. Pet's should not be left alone in the cabin unless you have made arrangements with the owner, there is a kennel for pets if you don't want to take your pets with you, with that said, the park is not pet friendly and will and have broke out windows to rescue pets that are in distress!

The forest on the other hand will allow pets on leashes.

I am not responsible for pets left at the property.

About Kimberli Taylor

This cabin us built in 1956 by William Bell were he lived till he passed away, I am now the property owner and would love to see it enjoyed by those that are looking to escape the city and get back to nature, a place to unplug and reconnect with your spirit, kids and heart.

Kimberli Taylor purchased this cabin in 1956

Why Kimberli Taylor chose Kings Canyon

I am most at home in the mountains and have lived here 37 years. The Pinehurst area provides the mountain environment while being reasonably close to the cities of Visalia and Fresno. This particular property is nestled amongst the, cedars, and oaks and is right off the main road to Kings Canyon. Wildlife are attracted to the creek which flows seasonally through the property.

What makes this cabin unique

Peace, quiet, and seclusion, opportunities for walking, birding, horseback riding, and nature study. Artists (writers, painters, musician and composers) will enjoy the opportunity for introspection. Close to Dunlap (archery center) parasailing and hang gliding (Dunlap flight park) General Grant Grove of Giant Sequoias, and Giant Sequoia National Monument.

I also will take well behaved pet's $15.00 dollars per pet per night pet need to be house broken and well behaved, pets are not to be lift in the cabin when guest leave, if you don't want to take your pet on your outing, you can leave them in the kennel that I have provided for them.

Cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

Kimberli is a kind and accommodating host. She was really helpful when we needed to find tire chains because of potential bad weather. The cabin was very clean and cute inside. We loved making fires In the wood stove and watching the birds out the huge windows. The grill and deck were a lovely place to eat and watch the sunset. We played lots of board games. The cabin is stocked with everything you could possibly need - tons of towels and sheets; soaps and detergents and lotions; books, games, puzzles, maps - but it's also full of things you don't need - expired medicine, old spice packets, etc. The other reviewer who said the property is cluttered with old tires and junk was correct, unfortunately. The driveway was quite terrifying for us city folk (well, to me! My husband says it wasn't terrifying- haha) but made for an adventure! The only other thing we didn't like was the bed by the back door and washer/dryer. We would have preferred more beds upstairs in the loft, which was a much nicer place to sleep. Overall we loved it, though. Inside the cabin is well kept and very cute. The location was great - close to King's Canyon and Sequoia, which we thoroughly enjoyed hiking! Expect no wifi/cell service - to us, it was liberating to be "off the grid" for a few days. Just have to be prepared with paper maps!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I'm so happy that you had a good time. i am very sorry about the driveway, as I said before we got a lot of rain this year and it has taken a toll on every ones driveways, I have hired a contractor to fix the road, but I have to wait my turn and it is very costly, but I still have to be patient and wait. I don't really understand what Medications your referring to, I don't keep medications in the cabin, I do on the other hand, have first aid products Tums, Caladryl for poison oak~ a bug bite stick, I have these things in the cabin because we are over 50 mile to the nearest urgent care, drugstore or pharmacy, But my guest don't have to use anything that I keep at the cabin, please bring your own or buy it at the nearest market. What I will do is put everything in a first aid box, so that guest can use the space for there things. Again thank you for staying at my cabin.

Beautiful sanctuary

I loved to wake up to birds chirping and the sounds of the stream. Wild flowers made the air smell of honey. The cabin was very clean, comfortable, and fully stocked. Good host. Great location.

Beautiful cabin! Good books!

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute and booked this cabin just a night before. We stayed here for 2 nights and visited Fresno blossom trail on the way back home.

Kimberly is so kind and helping! We missed on following the directions as per the co-ordinates she has given instead followed google maps which lead us closer but kind of lost in dark. Finally when we reached she was waiting for us there. The day we checked out it was heavy snow ;she guided us through a different route as we didn't have chains (which was our mistake)also verified an hour later if we passed through the snowy area fine or not....Thank you Kimberly so much! I wish we stayed there more and I could read the books on national parks.

Cabin has everything you need. We cooked or meals for 2 days. No WIFI but we were not there for that 😊... Very clean n warm house! Highly recommended!

Magical cabin like in fairy tales!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Shady Glen Cabin. The house is so cozy and warm. The trees around the house are so beautiful. We took tons of pictures. We rented the cabin to celebrate a New Years and it was the best New Year Celebration so far! I wish we could go back in time! The owner, Kimberly, is the nicest person. She was very helpful and carrying. Thank you for a great experience. It was 2 days that we will remember our whole life!!! :)

The outdoors is simply stunning and pure silence, no internet, no connection just pure nature and nothing else. We partied at night, then the next day we went exploring into the woods, came back had some steaks in their barbque grill, watched some movies while my husband chopped up some firewood for the fireplace and then roasted some marshmallows, absolutely the best new years so far!

OK with spring just around the corner, wildflowers are already making an appearance, we should have a great season for wildflowers and the blossom trail is already in full bloom, I hope to see you here soon,.

We have had a very strong winter, lots of snow and rain! PLEASE BE PREPARED! bring cables or chains!

This area is great for cross country skiing and shoe shoeing and sliding... I do have some sleds for guest to use. or just sit on the deck with a cup of coffee hot tea maybe a glass of wine or cold beer watch the stars at night or greet the sun in the morning with the visiting birds that visit the feeders. or spend a quit night warm bye the fire watching movies or reading.
