Amazing country home, updated and cozy while retaining its rustic character along with breathtaking river and Sierra vista from the porch and bedroom.

Rod & Carol’s cabin was great and dog friendly! Unfortunately we dealt with plumbing issues however, the hosts were accommodating, prompt, and applied a discounted stay due to our inconvenience. I would recommend this cabin especially when visiting Sequoia National Park.

This place was everything and more. No need to really leave. You can grill the fish you catch from the river, there is a hammock to relax on, a porch with rocking chairs, or stay in bed with a beautiful view. Truly a great spot to stay.
