This cabin is about 20 minutes from the north entrance to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks, and just 25 minutes to the Grants Grove Visitor Center, so it is ideally suited as a place to stay when visiting the parks. It can sleep eight people. There is a double bed in the back bedroom, connected to the middle room with a set of bunks and a small fold-out sofa bed. The living room has a hassock that opens up to be a twin bed and a large sofa bed that sleeps two comfortably.
There is an internet connection, a DVD player, and a complete kitchen. There are no separate laundry facilities, but the hosts can do a couple of loads of laundry for guests.
The cabin was built in 1938 and is authentic, with redwood shake siding, unfinished tree trunks supporting the porch, old-fashioned glass doorknobs, and lots of pine paneling. It has been completely remodeled, with all new floors (kid friendly vinyl plank that looks like wood) and new bathroom fixtures but it still has charming bits of the original cabin, such as blue speckle tinware, patchwork curtains, and an old barn on the property that was built much earlier.
Staying in this cabin is like going back to a simpler time. It is decorated in a way that is authentic to an old-time cabin in the mountains. Even the china, glasses, and kitchen tools are authentic to an earlier era. Guests will know they are in the mountains of California!
The large, cool front porch is a great place to relax and listen to the frogs at night, also wonderful for soaking up kids energy with the ping pong table and darts. The hosts have a collection of board games in the cabin, and also a large monitor with a DVD player and a modest collection of DVD's the family will enjoy.
The hosts sometimes have snow in the winter, from late December through March, which is fun for the kids. If they can't sled here they will be able to up in the parks!
