Stayed here while visiting Sequoia National Park. The park was beautiful! The area around the cottage was very hot and dry when we were there so was not the prettiest time of the year to stay in this area. I'm sure spring is much nicer. A beautiful mountainous view surrounds the cottage.
The cottage interior was nice and cool when we arrived. We were asked to turn the air conditioner off when we were not there. We followed this request. When we returned to the cottage late evening after being in the park all day it was like an oven! Took at least an hour for the bedroom to cool so we could sleep. Speaking of sleeping the bed is very hard. My husband did not mind it, but it was much too hard for me ( one night I couln't sleep because of the hardness).
Back to the air...I am all about conserving energy, but the heat in the cottage when we returned was very uncomfortable.
The kitchen was well stocked with things for cooking.
Eating tip- the rolls at We Three Bakery which is close by were delicious!
This is a cozy relaxing place to stay while in the area. If you can avoid the summer heat I am sure it would be much nicer. It was much cooler in the park.
