The Sierra Cottage is a two-bedroom one-bath accommodation.
It is great for a family with young children.
One of the bedrooms you walk through to get to the second bedroom so it is not necessarily recommended for two couples.

It offers a kitchen, dining area, front and back patios. There is a propane grill with picnic table for your use!

The Sierra is the first cottage in a row of three.

Great little cottage to stay at. Perfect for our 2 year old daughter and dog. Lots of yard space off the road for them to play. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Great location. Easy drive to see Trail of 100 Giants. We look forward to staying back here again!

The Sierra Cottage is a charming place to stay while visiting Kernville. Located close to everything Kernville has to offer, you couldn't ask for a better location. The cottage itself is very quaint and a nice change from a bland hotel room. The swamp cooler keeps the cottage …

Response from Carla:
Thank you for the nice review Andrea. We have the center cottage the Sequoia that is also a two bedroom. In that two bedroom you do have complete privacy from one room to another. The cabins are a part of Kernville's history. They were once used to house the workers that built the Edison plant up river in the late 40's. We did some pretty major renovating to get them to where they are at but yes I agree the layout is a bit different! If you return, the Sequoia has more privacy and I think the listing states the Sierra is great from families with small children and the Sequoia more for couples. The large tree out front ensures the Sierra to be the very coolest, an important feature that sometimes outweighs the privacy from the second bedroom. There was a broom outside next to the water heater shed. We always try to leave what our guests may need. So happy you enjoyed your stay!
