The space
In a beautiful setting nestled among mature trees and terraced garden patios, your private space has its own gated driveway, private entrance, kitchenette/dining area, and fireplace lounge. It is the entire lower riverside story of a larger 2 story house. The upper portion of the house is not rented and always unoccupied so, the ample property grounds and riverfront are yours alone to enjoy during your stay! The house is curated in a rustic modern style with vintage artwork, favorite books/games, and comfortable furniture. Many thoughtful design details have gone into our space - even the cedar wood paneling is locally sourced from naturally felled trees in the Sequoia National Forest! We aim to give you a 5 star stay.

Inside you’ll find a pleasant space to relax and take in the experience of a breathtaking riverfront setting. Ideal for a couple, small family and accommodating up to 4 comfortably, the main bedroom opens to the large kitchenette and features a queen bed & large sofa, while the newly remodeled fireplace/lounge room has a queen size sleeper sofa. A roomy full size bathroom with walk-in shower is just off of kitchenette. You'll also have your own AC/heat, Cable TV & Wifi. The well stocked kitchenette is equipped with a dual cooktop, counter top toaster oven, microwave & mid size fridge/freezer (no full oven). Everything a chef needs for simple meals! Step outside to one of the patios for a BBQ (charcoal), dinner or glass of wine al fresco, or sit right at the river’s edge and feel the cool rush of water.

The sunrise over the eastern ridges will wake you gently to start your day. Adventure abounds for those who seek it. Hiking trails, kayaking, rafting, nature walks, paddle boarding, mountain biking, fly fishing, a nearby cedar forest, Kern River Audubon Preserve, Sequoia Park & Giant Redwoods, Isabella Lake, Salmon Creek Falls – even a quaint chairlift ski resort less than half hour away - are all right here in the incredibly diverse Kern River Valley and its surrounding area.

But, it’s ok to just take it easy too! Take in the magnificent sunlit eastern ranges of the Sierras at sunset. Relax by the fireplace or a play a board game in the lounge to finish off your day. As dusk gives way to a Sierra night you can explore the bountiful shooting stars. You will sleep very peacefully to the sounds of the river. Stay in or go out. The choice is yours. Either way, you’ll find the perfect stay for your plans at River’s Edge.

We also rent the entire 2-story house in another listing if you’re looking to accommodate a larger group:

Location

Kernville, California, United States

River's Edge is in a quiet residential area just a mile from downtown Kernville. Kernville is a historic town founded during the Gold Rush era in California. It's also situated on a Wild and Scenic river, and the natural surroundings are breathtaking. Downtown Kernville has several restaurants, coffeeshops, a brewery, a nice museum, some antiquing and a good grocery store. In addition, you'll find many outfitters for rafting, kayaking, and fly-fishing in season. Summers are hot (and the river is refreshing), winters are cool with a few days of snow and spring & fall are wonderful. A true 4 season place and always something to do!
