“Dirty, worn out, unsafe and staff unavailable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We left after one night as we were horrified by how filthy our cabin was. We rented cabin #9 as it looked attractive on the internet. Reality is that the place was worn out, very close to the highway which gave a lot of noise, unsafe as we could not lock the door to the deck in a deserted place (there was just no lock) and most of all: filthy. We could not even touch the pans and cutlery as all was extremely greasy and covered by dust. The floor was filled with dead flies and sand everywhere. The basic needs were missing (there was only one knife and we were four in a large 'family cabin'. We found large chocolate and grease stains on the table outside. But when we lifted the BBQ lid, we decided to leave. It was filled with cigarettes and rotten meat. Would have to have been so romantic, turned out to be deserted, surrounded by dump and a big disappointment. Never again.

My family and I did NOT want to leave! Our cabin was amazing! We can not wait to come back! This is seriously the best cabin I've ever been in. FULLY equipped, plenty of room for a family, and more. The view was spectacular, the river streamed through and could swim, which we did, and a small trail. We saw dears, beavers, and other harmless animals. My daughters even spelt outside on the long chairs because the night view of the stars were truly amazing! And if you are a couple there are cabins thatll suit you well! I give this cabin 10 stars if I could. I definitely recommend this cabin to you!
Monica.

There are a few decent aspects to this place. The location is good, right in Three Rivers, just outside of Sequoia NP. It is easy to find and it is on a lovely little river. There are also some decent amenities - grill, laundry facilities, ets. For the money however, this place is pretty poor because it is really dirty. The walls are really gross with dirt and dead bugs all over and the furniture is so old and dirty looking that no one really wanted to sit on it. There was a slight oder when we walked in that they had tried to mask with massive amounts of glade air freshener that gave everyone a headache. There weren't even fitted sheets on the beds. The upstairs loft is up a very rickety ladder making trips to the bathroom downstair at night very difficult and there is very little ventilation so it is pretty unpleasant up there. This was way more money than staying at some of the lodging options in and around the park that are better kept and cost less money. I wish we had done those instead. This place has some potential though, just wish they would clean it up!

LOCATION – Very easy to find, right on the main road through the town. Right beside the river. Petrol station, grocery and liquor store in the vicinity. There is someone on site to help with any queries, and he was friendly and helpful, but you must first pick up keys at the resort reception at the Kaweah General Store about 1 mile from the accommodation.

ACCOMODATION – Large bright property with a double bed downstairs in the living area and double and twin beds in the dorma upstairs. Dorma was very hot, but a large fan was provided. Large fully equipped kitchen, with full size oven and the usual appliances you would expect. Sliding doors that were hard to open lead out to a large wooden platform with BBQ and furniture, overlooking the river. Nice to sit on in the evening with wildlife around and the back of the property overlooking the river is very peaceful.

Nice bathroom with toiletries but no hairdryer. Tap water is not drinkable, but bottled water was provided. Accommodation is comfortable enough for a longer stay than the two nights I stayed.

The cabin was fairly new when we stayed, so I assumed the landscaping outside was not finished as it was a tad scruffy, with exposed pipes and uneven paving.

TIP - There is a bit of road noise from the front of the accomodation and the curtains are a bit thin, so if you are a light sleeper take an eye mask and some ear plugs

VALUE FOR MONEY – Could have been a bit cheaper, but on the whole yes.

Perfect place to stay! If you decide to go to Sequoia National Park or King's canyon.
The room was cute with a vaulted ceiling and very nice view of the river.
Nice small balcony on river side of cabin, good layout for cooking.Sitting area by the water was nice. Close to river and country atmosphere were quiet and relaxing.
Lots of birds different kind ,quails ,deer also saw a bobcat.My son caught three fish barbecued it, was good. He can't wait to go back again!
