On our way to Kings Canyon we bumped into Cindys Snowline Lodge in the evening hours. It is a very charming place, and the owners gave us a good price for a very clean and comfortable room. They are very friendly and welcoming people, and are currently hard working to renovate the building, after the former owner had left it in a very bad state. We had a nice self-made dinner and breakfast on the porch. Free Wi-fi is included, but too slow for online phone connections.
Bring some earplugs along if you have a soft sleep, the frogs make quite some noise during the night.
