This is a beautiful studio on several acres comprising the entire ground floor of the structure with its own entrance and own terraces.( Prices for Thanksgiving include accommodations for 4 folks for the whole house rental).
We just bought this beautiful and interesting home!! Thank you so much for your interest and know that we would love to have you and look forward to sharing the Sequoia National Park and our new home with you! Holiday prices will include the three bedroom two bath home plus this large studio (Xmas & New Year's Eve) It's a lovely space and we've never seen anyone who wasn't thoroughly delighted. The studio comprises the entire bottom floor of our property with its own entrance off the terraces facing the grounds and the river. It's beautifully situated in an open and stylish space that feels expansive and interesting. With beautiful light and everything you need this studio with gorgeous walkways and private entrance will provide everything you need and the space will speak to your heart. Walk over to the river and use this home as your launching pad to the Sequoia National Park and the delightful town of Three Rivers, California. It's made for two, but there is a day bed/cushion set up we can casually put up for a small additional charge if you like. The summer sleeping deck is optional and would be an additional price. The studio is an amazing combination of both rustic and plush...all wrapped up in one.
You have everything you need for a comfortable stay in this spacious (600 sq ft) studio including a King size organic, springless mattress, park like surroundings, amazing views from every window, private outdoor eating space, a wood-burning stove, indoor dining table, a large screen TV and entertainment center, your own kitchenette, kettle, two burner stove-top, and small fridge, etc. Please be our guests and enjoy it to the fullest. Only nice people need apply... and we will do our best to provide a beautiful stay for you! ; )
Honeymoon touches upon request with additional charge. Gorgeous flowers, special bedding, fine champagne....just let us know. Consider a small reception upstairs for your engagement party and /or wedding.
**As the guest studio comprises the entire ground floor of the structure on the property please be aware that the upstairs may be rented to a family, or we may be there (there's only two of us) or no one may be there and you will have the property to yourself. This space can also be rented as part of the entire house, please inquire.
* The optional sleeping platform ($100 per night of reservation) with mosquito netting is only available at certain times, would depend on weather and availability. If the whole house is rented by two parties then we do not set up the optional sleeping deck; may need to be approved at the last minute. Feel free to wander the property, you are always welcome. ; ) very occasionally we have other guests on the property, although your patio is yours you may share the gazebo.
Either my husband or I will be available in person or on the phone. We also have a nearby cabin we often go to and places in Santa Monica as well that we rent; be sure to ask if you are going that way!
RESTAURANTS, ETC Three Rivers is a charming village of 2600 people with an artsy vibe, (check out Cort Gallery, and their Sunday night drum circle), although the National Park is the biggest draw and offers days of exploration. Coming to Sequoia National Park you will not help but become acquainted with its charm. Our property is perfectly situated, about ten - fifteen minutes from the Park entrance and its best late summer only swimming holes, and even closer (2 miles) to the only full service market (The Village Market and their weekend barbecues; perfect to take home or into the park; they close at 7 PM & 8 PM on the weekends) and two miles to the best part of the village on the river, the restaurant "Ol' Buckaroo", (Closed Tuesday and Wednesday - Open for brunch only on the weekends - and Mondays sometimes-otherwise good for dinner every other night at least when I wrote this) and coffee shop "Sequoia Coffee", also a great little antique store, the new Brewery, and the heart of Three Rivers. Right here you will also find a great sub and salad place with a 93 rating on yelp, Sierra Sub and Salad (closed 6pm and on Monday’s). For organic items there's a small store called "The Barn" with great gift items, and yoga and cycling in the same structure too, super close to us, that is wonderful. There’s also Bella Farms for self-service organics super close to us on North Fork. There is the "Gateway" for amazing wine, stunning river views, live music (sometimes, call ahead) on some weekends and aiming at rather elegant food and full bar including premium tequila. (There is a drugstore, a pizza place, and a Mexican place called Mendosa’s as well within 2 minutes of our place, and Reimers, the best ice cream on the planet a bit closer to the park, in season fresh Three Rivers blackberry! And peach!) Super casual and also on the river there is the River View, for a game of pool, a drink, friendly patrons, and sometimes the best live music for hundreds of miles, (call ahead). For longer stays consider a jaunt into Exeter for dinner at the French Wine Bistro called "Monet". Worth the drive for Jennifer’s food and hospitality (and or stop on your way into Three Rivers if the timing is right- 5pm opening ) and also visit the fabulous antique shops there as well. (about 25 minutes from 3R on your way into Three Rivers). Check Yelp for great places too in Visalia if you’re Jonesing for really yummy food - Jack and Charlie’s - the Vintage Press -
two of my faves.
You'll need your car ; ) for getting around! Although there is a shuttle into the park.
This studio with its private entrance is situated on about five acres and one of the Forks of the Kaweah River; go this direction to Lady Bug Trail, and although our river is stunning, LadyBug also has amazing winter and spring roaring rivers, spring flowers and lady bugs. If you are in need of four bedrooms, the "whole house", the three bedrooms, two bath house plus this studio below with its king size bed, kitchenette and bathroom can be rented together. (inquire).
