Welcome to River Willow, our wonderful 1950's cabin on beautiful Kern River in the quaint, residential neighborhood of Riverkern, 3 miles from Kernville. An idyllic setting perfect for couples or small groups. Property is 1 acre with river access, fenced front yard, surrounded by mountains & lush vegetation. Explore the area, sit on the deck, follow a sandy path to relax by the river & then continue the path to a private neighborhood beach for river swimming. See more at thekernriverhouse.com

The space
Our classic, updated cabin's main floor has one bedroom with a queen bed and a small adjoining bedroom with a twin xl bed. The loft is accessed by a steeper stair/ladder with handrails on both sides & a fixed baby gate at the top. The loft has a full bed & a twin sofa bed. The cabin can accommodate up to 5 people comfortably. There's a main bathroom with a tub/shower and a separate toilet room. The second bathroom is between the 2 downstairs bedrooms and is a half bath. There's no bathroom in the loft.

Perched high on granite boulders with incredible western views of the rugged Greenhorn Mountains, you'll feel right at home in your California getaway. A lovely seasonal stream sometimes runs through the property during spring runoff (California weather dependent, please inquire). You can hear the Kern River from the cabin then walk the sandy path to your own slice of riverfront. Relax in the boulder patio or swing in the hammock & take in the serene landscape. On the covered deck, unwind with yoga or a book with coffee in the morning. Watch the sunset over the majestic peaks with a cocktail in the evening. Enjoy a BBQ on the patio under the oaks. When it’s chilly outside, unwind with a board game in front of the cozy wood fireplace. The night sky gives way to stargazing and the calming sounds and scents of the southern Sierras.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find it thoughtfully designed and furnished. It's carefully appointed for comfort and convenience. Plugin or unplug – the choice is yours. Enjoy the fully stocked kitchen with locally roasted ground coffee, back deck with binoculars and rocking chairs, curated reading library, outdoor essentials: backpack, life jackets, sand toys, beach chairs, blankets & towels.

Ask us about any of the following:
Hiking trails, Fly fishing, Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Paddleboarding, Rafting, Rock climbing, Giant Sequoias, Isabella Lake, Kern Audubon Preserve, Spring Wildflower Blooms, Salmon Creek Falls – even a single chair lift ski resort less than a half-hour away - and so much more, await you all within a short distance. The area is home to an incredibly diverse natural environment with endless possibilities to explore. Have a quiet stay in Riverkern where you can walk to the General Store for basics, or drive a few minutes to Kernville to shop & get some dinner. Whether your visit calls for adventure or the quietude of a peaceful sanctuary, you’ll find a very special place at River Willow Cabin.

Where you’ll be

Kernville, California, United States

Riverkern is a small, quaint residential neighborhood just a few miles upstream from downtown Kernville. Our cabin has cabins next door on both sides. It's a quiet neighborhood with paved, well-maintained streets, no need for any specialty vehicle. The speed limit is 25 MPH on the main street with no sidewalks, so street bicycling isn't recommended.

Riverkern itself has a General Store within short walking distance from the cabin. You can grab coffee & breakfast or sandwiches for lunch! The General Store is closed from Thanksgiving (November) to President's Day Weekend (February).

Because it's a small and quiet community, it's very important to respect others' property and our neighbors. Please be aware of private property and of keeping the noise down at night. We've never had a neighbor complaint - yay!

We're in a very high fire hazard area, so outdoor fires or smoking are never permitted. Use of the propane BBQ on the front deck is permitted at all times of the year.
