Secluded Mountain Cabin with Access to the Sequoia National Park, California
"The cabin was clean, tidy, and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of hot water for showers. The host lives next door and was very we…"
This enchanting, mountain cabin sits immersed in pine trees and is 20 minutes from the northern entrance to Kings Canyon National Park, California. The cabin can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests and includes two bedrooms and one bathroom with a shower. The master bedroom has a separate entrance and comes with a queen-size bed and a chest of drawers for guests to store their belongings. The second bedroom is furnished with a twin bunk bed and a sleeper sofa that can accommodate one or two children. The living room also offers a sleeper sofa that makes into a double bed and a hassock that makes into a twin bed to accommodate additional guests.
Guests can cater for themselves throughout their stay with a full kitchen that includes a refrigerator, an oven, a stove, a microwave, a toaster, a coffee machine, dishes, utensils, and basic pantry items. An evening meal can be shared around the six-person dining table or on the spacious porch, which comes with an outdoor dining table to seat up to eight guests. The porch provides plenty of seating space, which makes the perfect spot to relax and feel truly immersed in nature. The porch boasts a table tennis table and a dart board so guests never get bored.
Inside, guests can curl up in front of the wood burning stove in the living room, which is supplied with plenty of wood. In the living room, guests will also find a monitor with a DVD player, to enjoy a cozy night in. Additionally, the cabin provides some modern amenities, including a hairdryer, and an iron. It also comes equipped with Internet access and a landline telephone so guests never feel out of reach.
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!

We open all the windows and doors and turn on fans so the cabin air is refreshed. We of course wash all the sheets and towels and clean the whole cabin every time, cleaning the surfaces and then going over areas likely to be touched with Clorox anti-viral wipes. The covered front porch runs the length of the cabin and is an outdoor living/dining room.
