Thank you for your interest in our cabin located in historic
Kings Canyon National Park. The cabin is located in Wilsonia, a private
residential community inside Kings Canyon National Park and within only a
few miles of many of the parks natural treasures. The cabin's elevation is
approximately 6500 feet above sea level. The main cabin consists of a master
bedroom with a queen-size bed, a sleeping loft with a full bed, complete
kitchen and bathroom (located off the master bedroom). It also has a futon
couch in the living room that may sleep either two children or one adult. There
is also a guest house in close proximity to the main cabin that has a
queen-size bed and bathroom.
The location of the property cannot be more perfect. We wanted to visit both Kings Canyon and Sequoia NP in a few days and use the house as a base. It is no more than an hour drive from all the "tourist" locations - the tunnel tree, giant redwoods, water falls, you name it. Wilsonia is a small community with friendly people. Very quiet. House has everything you will need to make a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The owner, David, is very patient and understanding, very easy going. We had the best vacation in years. Will definitely be back.
Beautiful location near the entrance to Kings Canyon National Park. Wilsonia is a nice quiet community right next to the Visitor's Center. The cabin owners are very thoughtful in making sure everything works in the cabin and that guests are warm (even willing to loan a jacket!). I wish we had more time to explore the nearby trails right from the cabin--there was so much to see in the national park and wilderness area since this was a great snow year...
