Overview

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 adult 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 $15.00 too $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 allow well behaved pet's $15.00 to $25.00 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.

Relaxing, quiet, close to the Parks!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Shady Glen from May 9-12, 2017. Kimberli gave us great detailed directions. She was there to walk us through the cabin to see if we had any questions. This cabin is great because it is about as close as you can get to the parks. There are numerous maps, guidebooks & more information about the parks on the bookshelves. Also provided are lots of movies, games & entertainment for the kids.

Cabin is nice & clean. Kitchen is well stocked. Deck is a relaxing place to read a book. Lots of birds to watch.

Fun place to stay!

Quiet rustic cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin really is a hidden gem. My wife and I used this cabin for a vacation for Sequoia national park. The cabin is fully furnished with most things you will need (fireplace, dvds, vcr, gas grill, outdoor firepit, fully stocked kitchen). We spent most of the day hiking and came back to the quiet cabin, built a fire and cooked dinner on the grill. Nothing was more relaxing than watching movie by the fire and eating dinner on the porch watching the sunset. A couple of points: The cabin doesn't have WiFi, but does get Verizon cell service. Overall an excellent time.

lovely, secluded, unplugged, well equipped, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house was exactly what we needed. It is wonderfully remote and the owner Kim keeps the cabin very well equipped in case you forget anything. No phone signal, no wifi, just great family time in a beautiful setting close to the sequoias. Due to the massive rains this year, the short road to the property's steep driveway was rough, drive it carefully. I'm sure that is temporary. Thanks Kim for a great stay.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Summer is here and what a great summer we're looking forward to rivers and lakes are all full! A great season for wildflowers and the blossom trail is already in full bloom, I hope to see you here soon! You can also fine more info on my Shady Glen Facebook page. Enjoy setting 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. Fire season is about to start, it wont be long before there will be a banned on camp fires,

Good news the road going in to the cabin has been fixed, so no more ruts to maneuver around.
