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.

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).

Sequoia and Kings Canyon

Visit the world’s largest trees at Sequoia, America’s second oldest national park. Neighboring Kings Canyon National Park is also filled with giants, from immense mountains to deep canyons. These two parks lie side-by-side in the southern Sierra Nevada range east of the San Joaquin Valley. Their dramatic landscape is a testament to nature's immensity, beauty, and diversity—there you’ll explore huge mountains, rugged foothills, deep canyons, and vast caverns.

Meet the 3,000 year-old General Grant sequoia in Kings Canyon. Discover the history of our national parks at Sequoia. And in both parks, experience the awe and wonder that comes from being surrounded by some of the world’s most colossal trees. Also found in the parks is a huge variety of wildlife. Year-round and seasonal animals populate the diverse terrain, from the gray fox and bobcats to marmots and pikas. Summer is hot and dry and the winters are cold and snowy—at Sequoia and Kings Canyon, you get it all!

The parks’ elevations extend from 1,300 feet in the foothills to 14,491 feet at the summit of Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the contiguous 48 states. Plunging in the opposite direction, far below the earth’s surface, you’ll find over 200 marble caverns, many with endemic cave fauna.

Although Congress created these two parks in the southern Sierra Nevada at different times, Sequoia and Kings Canyon share miles of a common boundary. Sequoia was America’s second national park, designated in 1890. General Grant National Park was the third and inspired John Muir and his quest to protect his beloved Sierras. This 154 acre park became part of the larger Kings Canyon National Park in 1940. Find out more details to help plan your visit with the National Park Service.
