Come and enjoy Spring in the Mountains
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 ceder ceiling provide a feeling of warmth or sit out on the deck with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy the cede, pine and oak trees and have a view toward the creek bottom, habitat for numerous wild birds including Seller jays and acorn woodpecker. A short walk on the creek side 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 Pinehurst
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.

A beautiful cabin, and we would definitely stay there again!
This was a nice and peaceful experience for my family. Getting away from busy work life in San Diego to a nice and quiet comfort cabin atmosphere is what my family and I needed! I was impressed with Kimberli customer service needs, I mean she basically ensured the cabin was stocked with clean blankets, bathroom towels, family board games, cooking pots, BBQ grill, etc.…
I love how each day was filled with nothing but sounds from nature wildlife, and I love watching the woodpeckers, quail’s and other miscellaneous birds I’m unfamiliar with feeding on the feeders outside the cabin. It was very peaceful! We were very fortunate to see a couple of deer’s, one large pheasant & plenty of chubby ground squirrels. Kimberli did mention black bears and a giant owl but we never had the opportunity to see either of those. Furthermore, we did see a rattlesnake on our last day at the cabin but it did not bother us and we could see it through the window inside the cabin. We were not frighten nor bothered, so we left it alone in its natural habitat. I just thought it was cool to see.
On day number one, Kimberli stopped for a visit to ensure we were pleased and she was helpful with informing us on all the parks and camps that were nearby. By the way, the highway is very curvy so be patient and vigilant while driving the roads! All in all, Kings Canyon visitor center is about a 30-minute drive, and Hume Lake was about 45 to 50-minute drive. Believe me it’s worth the drive and I promise the Sequoia National Park is worth seeing because I found the sequoia trees to be amazing!
At any rate, the cabin was in great shape and well maintained by Kimberli. Please ensure that your vehicle and tires are in great shape because there are no maintenance services for at least 20 miles and most of the roads, especially at the cabin is paved with small rocks so expect that. Overall, I give Kimberli 5 stars, so thumbs up to a beautiful cabin!
WOW Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, I hope you all get a chance to come back!
It concerns me about the rattle snake, although there's nothing I can do about the rattlers but advice and warn guest of the danger, it's good you got to observe this from the inside of the cabin, know one has ever seen one at the cabin before, at less that I know of. Thank you again for such a wonderful review
Secluded quiet cabin
We loved staying at Shady Glen. Quiet, secluded, and out of the way was just what we wanted. Will stay again when we come back to Sequoia and Kings Canyon.
A Peaceful Get-Away
Beautiful cabin and stay! We had a wonderful time. The cabin was perfect inside with everything that we needed. Outside was gorgeous and peaceful. Loved all of the birds and trees. I just wish that the creek was able to be touched. Unfortunately the bushes were growing happily by its side. But, hearing the stream all day and night was so relaxing. If you need to be away from everything, then this is the place for you. Thank you, Kimberli for the relaxing stay.
Well stocked cabin with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Beautiful location, great drive into the area. Kimberli was very helpful, only wish we could have stayed longer.
The cabin was everything we wanted for a cozy weekend away from Los Angeles.
Everything was beautiful and well looked after. We enjoyed seeing all of the wildlife and beautiful sunsets at the cabin and felt completely secluded. Kimberli was super responsive and even checked in to see that we were all settled. She has an awesome collection of DVDs, games, and books. I don’t think there was a thing we went without. Will definitely come back and totally recommend to anyone looking for a real log cabin experience!
This cabin was perfect for our family of four plus our beagle! Kimberli has truly made this cabin feel like home. She checked on us after check in to make sure we didn’t have any questions. She also informed us of pending snowfall for the overnight and gave us helpful information if that happened. We enjoyed exploring the property and making fires inside and out. She put out plenty of seed so that we could watch birds all weekend. We loved just how close it was to the park gate. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to explore Sequoia National Park!
Thank you so much for you're wonderful review, reviews help me know if I'm doing all I can for my guest and help me know where I need to improve.
The cabin looked great, there shouldn't be any problem returning you're full refund, I hope you will make it back this way again very soon.
Winter time mines low crowds and a slower pace, now is the time to be thinking of Valentines day and Easter, AKA Spring brace! If it snow's guest will need to park up at the top of the driveway and walk a short distance to the cabin, I will and have shuttled guest and there things to and from the cabin! 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.
