“Charming little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We stayed here for three nights and found the place to be quite clean and cozy. Lots of towels, which I like. Nice view of the lake from the porch in front of each room. Very well-kept grounds. The motel is older, as are all the motels in this area, but quite charming. And the price was right!

My husband and I went to the Wofford Heights area "house hunting" Nov 11, 2011 and stayed in Room #10. We were so happily surprised :-) It may not look like a Hilton on the outside, but the bed was definitely one of the best we have ever stayed in. The whole room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It had been raining all day and we were cold when we finally checked into our room. What a surprise to find the makings for hot cocoa - how perfect; and the next morning the coffee that is provided in the room was actually really good. We would definitely recommend Barewood Inn to anyone

Room Tip: Room #10 has a corner jacuzzi tub, along with a separate shower. It also has a small sitting area w...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

We needed lodging in the Kernville / Lake Isabella area on a Saturday to take a rafting trip the next morning. It was a last-minute trip, and every place I called was full or *very* expensive. Also, most places in the area have a 2 night minimum on weekends during the summer. When I called the Barewood they had room and a 1-night stay was not a problem.

I reserved a room, which was at the Lakeshore Lodge.....a sister property right down the road. A room with 2 queen beds was only $95 at the AAA rate. Based on reviews here, I was a bit concerned as it seemed all too easy.

When we arrived at the Barewood as instructed, the manager showed up right away. He was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We drove over to the Lakeshore and were in Room 33. My concerns went away. The outside was tidy and well-kept, while the room was clean but a bit dated. The shower was clean and in good repair and the towels and sheets were fine. Beds were very comfortable and there was no traffic noise or lights to disturb our sleep. The room included a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and bar sink. However no dishes or silverware was provided but there are small markets within a mile and a large Von's about 10 miles away. WiFi is free but the signal was weak but usable.

The lock was the retro motel key and plastic fob....not too secure but I wasn't worried about it. Security conscious travelers might want to lock valuables in their car.

The Lakeshore Lodge is a great value if you need a clean, basic place to stay and for people needing only one weekend night's lodging.

Room Tip: Lakeshore is a bit isolated feeling- try to get a room at the Barewood first.

Our family of 7 stayed at this very large but comfortable lake side home for the 4th of July weekend 2011. The home had every amenity possible including a very nice jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom. The home was furnished beautifully and was very clean and user friendly. Lakeviews right outside the kitchen deck and able to walk out the back door to cool off in the lake. Convenient for our water toys and also enjoyed Kern River Rafting just 5 minutes away. We had a GREAT family vacation and will definitely be back!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2010

We had a nice stay in the motel, we booked via email which was dealt with promptly by the manager and booked a room with jacuzzi bath. The room was well laid out, clean and had the usual amenities, however at $85 per night we do feel this was a little on the pricey side. We only stayed one night so cant really comment much on the service of the hotel however the receptionist was a little abrupt on check in.

I would recommend this motel for short stays only, purely based on the limited facilities nearby however it is in a peaceful location close to the lake.

The website does not begin to do this motel justice. We were in Room #10, a very large L shaped room with a huge vanity, corner jacuzzi tub, free internet and very nicely appointed. With a table and chairs in front of each room on the porch, it was lovely to just sit and view the lake across the way. The owners were very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and incredibly accommodating. I highly recommend this motel!!!
