My family and I stayed at the Lazy J for our Fourth of July vacation. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Ours had a kitchen, with all of the necessary tools provided. The Weber Bar-B-Que they provided was put to good use on our back patio. Our dog "Scruffy" was very much at home in our room and roaming their... More

The location is great. The place is beautiful and the pool is very enjoyable. About the staff, well let's say it depends on who you meet.. When we arrived, the lady was really nice and she gave us a list of restaurants we could go to! But then breakfast is included in the price and when we showed up at... More

This is our second stay at the Lazy J. Beautiful settings and great rates. The rooms are clean and quiet at night. This older well maintained Motel is my favorite stay in the Three Rivers area. We'll be back. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was the low water pressure in the shower.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lazy J Ranch. It is probably the best value near the Sequoia National Park. The property consists of cottages that a separate or joined. Try to get a room in one of the brick cottages that are near the rear of the property which has amazing views of the country side. There is a... More

Older property on 10 acres. Nice, clean rooms, all single story. Lovely yard with flowers, pool, play ground, rocks to climb, horse shoes and lots of trails in the back of the property. Beautiful wild flowers in meadow down to the river. Sheep and goats. Breakfast is not spectacular, but it is there. Videos to borrow in the office. The... More

great location and great ranch to stay. My two kids, hubby, and I have a great family trip ever. We love this ranch with sheep and big yard so that kids can run, run, and run. Also, this ranch has a great place to play volleyball. Hope come back soon!

Staff was very friendly and we would definitely recommend it. The price was fantastc too. bear in mind that there are not many choices to eat in Three Rivers,... More

We are very happy with our experience. We stayed two nights at the cabin. It was very cozy. Cabin 1 has a separate living room space. Bedroom has amazing views & has plenty of closet/storage space. The kitchen is equipped with everything [plates, cups, forks, spoons, pots & pans]. AC & heater work great. We love that it's walking distance... More

Two nights in our "cabin". Yes it was a little dated, but so comfortable. We collected our breakfast the previous evening and met the lady owner. She was lovely and showered us with oranges..lovely. We took advantage of a drive into the mountains which supported the Sequoia trees..another plus. If we were to improve the accommodation it would be to... More
