“Kern river getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Michael is awesome. Stayed in the office late to check us in even though we arrived later than planned.

Nice bath amenities, complimentary bottle water in the refrigerator as well as popcorn. We stayed two nights. Very quiet and peaceful with view of the lake. Room was very clean as well as the grounds. We had our little four pound dog with us and he waived the pet fee. Very convenient to Kernville as well as the Sequoias. We had a great time and would highly recommend this motel. Thanks again Michael!!!

Room Tip: Great location and clean and quiet

I spent one night at the Barewood but it was lovely. (Note: it was not the touristic season and I was the only customer there so yes, it was as quiet as if I were dead but I don't know if it's always like this).

Now the room: Pretty, old fashioned, charming. It's like a home, somewhere in the country.
It's very comfortable, and really really clean. You have a fridge, a coffee machine, popcorn, hot chocolate, water was waiting in the fridge... all good!!

The view from the motel is amazing (on the lake and the forest) and yes as mentionned, it's quiet. Kernville is 5minutes away, or you can just stay between the bears and the trees and pretend civilization never happened.

Yes: recommended!

(regarding the grades: no breakfast and no swimming pool, so I can't put excellent, but that's fine, you don't miss it!)

Cute, clean and charming, great for the price. We stayed 2 nights and even my husband commented on the design of the room being nice with the beams overhead and arched doorway to the bathroom. Cute dried flower wreath. Good bed. Popcorn to use with the microwave and a good little fridge for cocktails at the end of the day. We stayed by ourselves the first night but we could hear some of the neighbors the 2nd night. Walls a little thin. We were in #8.

Room Tip: Maybe an end room.. 1 0r 10 would be less noise from neighbors.

My cousin and I stayed there last weekend (Aug 3rd) and was pleasently surprised. The room was clean and well-maintained, and the beds were comfortable! The man who checked us in was very kind and sweet (we made reservations just two days earlier). Not exactly the Hilton, but all things considered, I"d stay there again when passing through Kernville.

We took a two week vacation throughout California and this was by far the nicest place we stayed. We liked it better than the Marriott, Best Western, and private cottages we stayed at. Michael, the GM, was VERY accommodating with our late arrival. We stayed in room #10. It was very clean and quite charming. The lovely hand painted wall decorations, dried flowers, quilted bedspread made this the perfect country style retreat. The Jacuzzi-style bathtub is big enough for two. Bubble bath liquid and scented soaps were provided for us. The bed was incredibly comfortable. It was a quite location with more than we could ever have expected. I HIGHLY recommend this location and hope to return there someday. It was the perfect end to our romantic 25th wedding anniversary adventure/vacation. Thanks SO much to Barewood for giving us the best possible ending to our trip!!

Room Tip: Room #10 is perfect for a romantic getaway!

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!
