Rio Sierra was a wonderful place to rest our heads. Mars was super and shared not only her home with us, her time and her campfire. The sa'mores were a real treat. What a delight this place was. Comfortable accommodation, which in truth we spent little time in as the outside was amazing and ticked all our boxes. The cabannas... More

After camping with my two daughters, 8, and 15 in the Sequoia National Park, we needed a pampering place to stay. Mars is a very welcoming innkeeper. She joined my daughters and I for S'Mores nightly after she had lit the bonfire. They had just recently had a wedding there, a perfect location, so there were still dried rose petals... More

When I decided to write this review following our recent stay at the Rio Sierra Riverhouse, I took the opportunity to read previous reviews and was surprised to find references to Sean, a security Guard, and Cheryll & Erin, housekeepers. My surprise was caused by the fact that none of these people were around during our 3 night stay. In... More

My wife and I manage a motel in Cambria, and honestly could not think of anything about the Rio Sierra Riverhouse that we would like to change. It is now our favorite place in CA. We almost went back to Napa, where we honeymooned, but God definitely lead us here instead. YOU WILL BE HAPPY YOU STAYED! Awesome house, awesome... More

My wife and I rotated among three of the four guest rooms at the Rio-Sierra this past week-end. We plan to come back next week with our adult daughters. The “Master Suite (five rooms) is worth a special trip all by itself. Every inch of space appears to have been studied and crafted for convenience, art, and comfort, and the... More

We were going to stay at the Buckeye Tree Lodge from a friend's old recommendation. Luckily they were full, so I discovered Rio Sierra - thank heavens! This place is just a dream, everything is just so perfectly put together, with real care and great taste. It's an old house that's been split up into suites, right on the river.... More

This place is just beyond imagination. Mars, the property manager is by far the best I have seen so far and I rent houses a lot these days. Living at the property was even better than the national park. There is a bonfire every night, BBQ grills available. There is on BBQ grill very close to the river. During this... More

Can't stop thinking about our wonderful stay at the Rio Sierra. Once you step behind the blue gate and enter the property, it's pure beauty! we just cant stop thinking of our lovely weekend. We stayed in the River Studio with a wonderful view of the Kaweah River and have booked the Master Suite for a girls trip in January.... More

My wife and I took our very first trip to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park in July 2008 and after spending a couple of nights in Cedar Grove we took a recommendation from Diana Jules (a realtor in Three Rivers) to stay at a new place in town called the “Rio Sierra Riverhouse”. This charming place was a residence that has... More
