About David & Juli Beale-Van
This is where I raised my family. My children grew up exploring the mountain trails and creating new trails of their own. They learned to swim and fish in this river. They would build forts and camp near the river in their tents. They still tell stories of the campfires and s'mores they enjoyed for so many years. This is where my children learned to ride their horses, where they learned responsibility and creativity. Now our children bring our grandchildren here to create those same memories for them. We are so proud to have three generations enjoying this beautiful ranch on the river. My husband is a hard worker who is a long time member of Cowboy Culture Club. We are both board members the Backcountry Horseman's of California. The BCHC is a non-profit organization made up of individuals who are dedicated to conserving backcountry wilderness and protecting stock users' historic use of wilderness trails and forage. We are dedicated to keeping all public lands open to the public. We proudly sit on thier board of directors. My husband loves to saddle up his horses and pack his mules to take supplies to the stations deep in the forest. We spend a lot of our time volunteering to help clean up and improve our local lands and ranches. We want to make sure our children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors are able to enjoy nature the way we have. When you stay with us you are not just a room number in a commercial establishment, you are truly a guest in our HOME and we take that personally!

Why David & Juli Beale-Van chose Three Rivers
Our property is unique in many ways. We are centrally located between Lake Kaweah and Sequoia National Park. Lake Kaweah is 1.2 miles SW of our property. Here you can enjoy many water sports and family activities. The marina offers house boat and water bike rentals. Just a few miles NE of our property you are at the entrance of the amazing Sequoia National Park. Sequoia is one of California's most spectacular treasures. Nowhere else is the Sierra so high. Nowhere else are the canyons so rugged and deep. And nowhere else does the Sierra rise so steeply from the west. Here you'll find giant trees and great canyons. The scale is grand; the park rises from 1,300 feet to 14,494 feet (at the summit of Mt. Whitney, highest point in the lower 48 states). Speaking of superlatives, here you’ll also find the largest tree on the planet (the epic General Sherman Tree), by some measures the country's deepest canyon (Kings Canyon), and the second-largest road-free wilderness area in the United States. And under it all, hundreds of marble caves and caverns, many teeming with rare plants and animals. The bottom-to-tip topography means dramatic changes in scenery, diverse plants and animals, steep roads and trails, and snowmelt-fed rivers racing down from mountain peaks. Our family favorites at the park include the Crystal Caves and the General Sherman Tree. These are a couple of the 'must see attractions' when you visit. If golf intrest you, the Three Rivers Golf Course is less than 1 mile NE of us. All of these attractions are located off of Sierra Drive (Hwy 198). On your way to the park, you can stop at the famous Reimer's Candy & Gifts for some delicious homemade ice cream. Enjoy an elegant dinner at The Gateway Restaurant. They offer great food and friendly service with wonderful views. Looking for adventure? Try white water rafting or horseback riding. There are many trails for exploring and hiking. There is truly something for everyone here.

Wonderful Winter Getaway
We had a wonderful time in Three Rivers and Sequoia. This property was amazing and the Juli was very welcoming and made us feel like family. Loved staying here and will definitely be back in the summer.
Very comfortable.... good people
Calm and peaceful getaway
We had a wonderful time at Kalweah. We stayed in the cottage and loved the hot tub, petting the horses and walking to the river. Thank you Julia for being prompt and helpful. We would love to stay again!
Juli is the sweetest person. We will definitely be back .
We booked this trip to celebrate our anniversary and my wife’s birthday. We took our 5 year old son with us and made memories that will last a lifetime. We enjoyed the river and the hot tub on the property . The rental was very clean and cozy . We will definitely be back and are looking forward to spending some time with our new friend Julia our next visit.
Location to Sequoia Park was perfect. Very quiet and clean accomodation next to the river. The owner goes out of her way to help you feel at home. We'll be back!
Cabin was convenient and comfortable. Owner was helpful and available. Our stay was too short! Short drive into the Sequoia Park. Lovely area. Definitely on our radar for a return trip in the future!
Beautiful Three Rivers is located at the base of Sequoia National Park just above Lake Kaweah. We are a riverfront property with a blanket of stars above us at night. Boating, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, Giant Sequoia Trees and the Crystal caves are just a few of the to do's while visiting us. Oops, don't forget to just relax and play in the river by day and sit by a campfire at the river by night.
