The space
Our classic, updated cabin has one bedroom with a queen bed, a small second bedroom with a twin, plus a loft with a full bed and twin pullout that can accommodate up to 5 comfortably. Perched high on boulders of the riverbank with incredible western views of the rugged Greenhorn Mountains, you'll feel right at home in your California getaway. In addition to the Kern riverfront setting, a lovely seasonal stream runs through the property during spring runoff. Relax in the rock patio, or swinging in the hammock, and take in the serene landscape. On the covered deck, unwind with yoga or a book with coffee in the morning, and watch the sun set 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 fireplace..The night sky gives way to stargazing and the calming sounds and scents of the river wilderness.

Inside the cabin you’ll find it thoughtfully designed and furnished, and carefully appointed for comfort and convenience. Plug in or unplug – the choice is yours.

Hiking trails, Fly fishing, Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Paddle boarding, 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 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.

Guest access
As our guest you'll have the cabin and entire property to yourself. You'll be able to walk right on down to the river and sit under the shade of a tree, take the path to the small community beach or just hang out around the cabin. Access to the property is via coded driveway gate and coded front door.

Location

Kernville, California, United States

Riverkern is a lovely small community just a few miles upstream from downtown Kernville, where you'll find plenty of amenities such as coffeeshops, restaurants & bars, market & gas, some antiquing - and plenty of outdoor adventure outfitters for rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding & fly fishing. There's also limitless hiking and mountain biking in the area! Riverkern itself does have a general store in walking distance from the cabin. You can grab coffee & breakfast or tri-tip sandwiches for lunch!
Because it's a small and quiet community, it's very important to respect other's property and our neighbors. Please be aware of private property and of keeping noise down at night when the owls come out! And, though you're welcome to use the fireplace, we are in a very high fire hazard area, so outdoor fires or smoking are never permitted.
