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.

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.

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!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a delight, very well maintained and attractive, comfortable, and stocked with everything one might need. Location is beautiful, very quiet and private. This is a perfect location for an "unplugged" getaway, great for getting our teenagers off their electronic devices and having them enjoy nature instead. We saw lots of different birds outside at the bird feeders. We visited both Kings Canyon (30 minutes or less away) and Sequoia (about 1 hour away) National Parks. A word of caution on the driveway to the cabin: It is very steep, so if you are traveling in icy, snowy or wet conditions, you are probably better off leaving the car at the gate instead of driving all the way down.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I am so happy that the winter weather did not get you down. And yes it is a very good Idea to park at the top of the driveway, this year has been a very good year for rain and snow, but not so great for traveling.

Great stay for seeing Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Park!

  • 5 of 5

Shady Glen cabin was perfectly situated for seeing the parks and for just being in the middle of nature! Kimberli has a cabin with lots of charm, a stocked pantry and everything you'd need for cooking. The bed was comfortable in the loft. Everythings so open, I imagine it would be fine for families. We were able to watch lots of deer and different kinds of birds outside from the big windows, and the big deck with the grill made our dinners special. Having no wireless, we were able to unplug and relax. Thanks Kimberli!

Very relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is nestled quite a way off the main road, which made for a very quiet and relaxing stay for our family of 4. In our price range, there wasn't much in terms of accommodations close to the north entrance of Sequoia (lodging in the park was sold out), so were very pleased with how relatively close this property was to the park entrance. That said, it did take a while (45-60 minutes depending on traffic) to get into the heart of Sequoia, but we expected that due to the winding roads and sheer size of the park. Kimberli was a very hospitable and accommodating host. The property was exceptionally clean and well-stocked. We were a bit concerned about how well the swamp cooler would work in the dog days of summer, but it worked great and we were very comfortable. Kimberli went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay and even called when we were late to arrive to make sure we were OK. Overall, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay Kimberli!

Comfortable, quiet, great for wildlife watching

  • 4 of 5

We booked shady glen mainly because it was close to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. When we got there, the interior looked just as welcoming and comfortable as the photographs. My husband was immediately drawn to the wealth of information about the two national parks on the bookshelf while I spent some time watching the birds out the window. Kim even came out one day per our request to refill the feeders. We saw numerous birds, mule deer, and a bobcat. Having the chance to wash our clothes was fantastic and the tub in the bathroom was very welcome to tired, hiked-out muscles. My one caution is for anyone with a very large vehicle. There is a small culvert stream crossing before you get to the cabin. Our rental camper van (picture a 15 passenger type van) was able to cross fine but I would be leery of anything wider like a large truck or similar. Any normal car or SUV would be fine. I would certainly rent here again should we ever be lucky enough to return to Kings Canyon NP.
