“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and coziness of our cottage. Convenienly located within a short walking distance to the shopping market and Kern River Brewing Co., it is tucked away in a perfect location in Kernville. Carla, the owner was friendly and we plan to return for another weekend getaway soon. We feel like we've found our hidden jewel in the mountains. Cheers!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I booked the Lakehouse cottage for a “girls get away”. It was such a cute and quaint house with the ideal location. We didn’t have to drive anywhere which made it really easy for everyone to enjoy themselves. The house itself is fully equipped and well maintained. We grilled every night and sat on the wraparound porch taking in the country. The beds and living area were extremely comfortable with no complaints of hard mattresses or furniture. If you are looking for an ideal location to town and river beaches, with no hassle of packing kitchen supplies and daily comforts, then this is your place. Carla, the manager, accommodated us in every detail. She really went out of her way to make our trip enjoyable and memorable. This is truly the best lodging for friends and family. Close enough to town, but far enough to feel secluded.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2011

My wife and I and our 1 year old headed up here for a quiet weekend away from the hustle of Los Angeles. This property is located right off of the main road right in Kern. It is across the street from the local market and a short walk from a bunch of fabulous restaurants and shopping, not to mention the river. A quick drive up the road is the forest of giants (think that is what it is called).

The Cottage we stayed in was a two bedroom with a full kitchen. It was decorated to match the mountain environment that we were in. The bed was comfortable and very clean as was the bathroom. It was perfect since we could put our child down in the other room, close the door and then have some alone time with each other. This property is truly a hidden gem. The best part of it was the rate that we paid. Will definitely be going back. The worst part of the stay was having to leave to come back down to reality.
