This property has potential but has become a little rundown. The chairs on the porch are overly worn. There was dust behind the bed so the rooms need to be more thoroughly cleaned. All of that said, it is a charming place located conveniently in the heart of downtown Kernville. The bed was comfortable as was the couch in our... More

We enjoyed our stay here, our room was very cosy and had a nice rustic feel to it. The bed was so comfy too. Kernville itself was nice too and there are lots of restaurants to choose from near to the hotel. We were on the end of the row of rooms so had some noise late at night from... More

I have stayed here a few times. The proprietors, John, and his wife are very nice people and John always has the lowdown on the area fishing. I stayed here last month for two nights. John is very accommodating as I reserved two rooms and accidentally forgot to cancel one of the reservations when my buddy backed out a few... More

We choose the property as they accommodated pets. Other pros is the location of the hotel, which is on a major street, easy walk to restaurants, shops and right in front of the river. Then there is the property itself. There is rustic, and then there is rustic. I would classify this property as a motel and not a lodge.... More

We needed a place that accepts pets, Large grass area for your dog. just a short walk to the river, cross the underpass and your at the park that sets along the river. Rooms remind me of my grandmothers home. Clean, some antiques in the room, King size bed very comfortable, with nice soft pellows & soft towels. Very comfortable... More

The River View Lodge in Kernville was such a welcome surprise. Antique furnishings don each room. The owners operate the lodge so you feel like you are in someone's home. This is not the generic chain place that you find in every tourist area. The locals treat everyone like friends. No dress code. Come as you are. Four legged friends... More

First of all, if you don't expect to see bugs, and wildlife, stay out of the country! The Lodge is right on the river, so of course you are going to see some animals. If you want a 5 star gourmet breakfast stay at a hotel where you will pay $200, a night and where you will be treated just... More

My stay at Riverview Lodge was nothing less than perfect. My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in room 6 and two of our friends stayed in room 8. We had camped for two days before we decided comfort was necessary. The jacuzzi tub in room 6 was the cherry on top of our quest for comfort and relaxation. The... More

I do not recommend the River View Lodge! At first sight, it looks rustic and has old world charm, however, room 1 that we stayed in is closest to the public sidewalk and gets pretty noisy. We were awoken several times at 3 in the morning by drunks talking and laughing loudly with no consideration. The bed was comfortable, but... More
