The Kern Lodge was very easy to find, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was cute and comfortable. It's a very short walk to groceries and the very good Kern River Brewing Company. It was a distinct and very pleasant contrast to Las Vegas from which we drove. I'd highly recommend this as a stop on your... More

The situation and location is ideal for Lake Isabella and the Kern Valley. The rooms are adequate and clean and with nothing particularly special about them. It is handy to have a fridge and microwave but of little self catering use if there is no cutlery, plates, mugs etc. The village has most of what you need in the way... More

We just had two nights at this little, mountain gem. Rose greeted us on arrival and quickly took care of us and got us into our warm cabin. She was helpful, friendly and knew so much about the area and where we should go for dinner. We could not have been happier. The room was large and very clean. Our... More

We loved our room (Suite) but all the rooms are very nice and the ownership has done a great job of making the grounds welcoming with a game room, pool and outdoor sitting areas. I will definitely be back, just 3 hours out of Los Angeles and a GREAT get-away! We also found Cheryl's Dinner (just down the street) for... More

Sequoia National Park and King's Canyon closed due to poor air quality and the Giant Redwoods were high on our list of must-see things so we were devastated. Sequoia National Forest, south of the park, was still open, but we had nothing booked. After a long, tiring and mountainous drive we looked for somewhere to stay at around 6pm. Serendipity... More

What a great place to stay. Our lodge had a name (which I forget) which implied it was a small one but there was plenty of room, a nice big comfortable bed, a great shower, big TV, etc. We only stayed for one night while passing through, arrived late and left early, but I wish we'd had time to stay...

This quaint little place is...what more can I say? Friendly staff and lovely little "houses" . A couple of things to work on, at least in my unit, would be to get all the light switches to work. It took me a long time to figure out what light / location that worked in the kitchen. The AC units are... More

Our group of six friends spent a delightful overnight here. The rooms provide a variety of amenities,depending on your needs. Large, well maintained rooms, some with kitchenettes & patios. These rooms are the Real Deal, not pseudo retro remakes! The place has a "Time out of Place" feel to it. Like I was Motor-courting with my grandparents. The property is... More
