5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Room was perfect for us but bed was too soft for wife. Huge shower with picture widow overlooking the river was nice and naughty. Just had to raise the shades when bathing. Bottled water, wine and fruit were very appreciated. The sitting areas for the river experience were the best I have ever had. The roar of the river was unbeliveably relaxing and Larry and Diana wee the perfect hosts. I wished we lived next dooe to them. Left Seqouia early each day just to enjoy the river.

Room Tip: Get the Kaweah room with the large shower.

The rooms are well-themed and have good space. Although the location is great for seeing the surroundings (Sequoia...), make sure to leave some time to enjoy the premises here. Relaxing by the river here is a solid half-day activity you may not want to miss.

I stayed here for 3 nights in June of 2011 and was very impressed by these suites. I would recommend them to anyone and would definitely stay here again. Sitting directly on the bank of the Kaweah River, at the entrance of Sequioa National Park, The River Jewel is the ideal place to spend time in nature relaxing and playing. Plenty of hiking, swimming, and nature-watching activities in this area and the friendly owners Larry and Dianna are more than happy to direct you towards any of them! I strongly recommend booking a whitewater river rafting trip while you are in town and experience some of the most excitementing rapids in California!

We loved this property and am so glad we ended our trip here. But people should know that the road construction in Sequoia is something you have to deal with if you stay in Three Rivers. It makes the trip into the heart of the park about an hour and 15 minutes, IF you time it just right. Be sure to check into this and plan accordingly. That being said, The River Jewel is close to perfect. We stayed in the Kaweah Suite, which is on the ground floor. Diana or Larry will tour you around the property, which is 3 beautiful acres right on the river. The sound of the river is lovely and there are sitting areas, a hammock, gorgeous rocks you can walk out on and chairs right in the river for just cooling your feet. It was VERY hot in September, over 100 degrees in the afternoon, but much cooler in Sequoia. In the evening, however it cools off into the 60's and we sat outside, listening to the river, enjoying our excellent food from Sierra Subs, and watching a beautiful sunset with the hummingbirds as company.

The suite itself is lovely, looks brand new, lots of room. There is TV, telephone, everything you need other than an ironing board and iron. The small kitchen area has a sink, small refrigerator, microwave, and a coffee maker with Starbucks coffee provided. More nice touches are fresh fruit, 4 bottles of water, paper towels, dish soap, etc. There are dishes, utensils, wine glasses provided as well. There are even beach towels for river swimming. I really could have stayed a week in this lovely place. What a nice break from crowds and noise!

I am joining a chorus of praise and rejoicing for the beautiful River Jewel Suites at Three Rivers. Diane and Larry are the owners...and are very hospitable, relaxed and helpful. Thankyou to them both for their generosity of spirit and time.
We had the suite on the ground floor...and we extended ourselves out to the back area with ease and much preferred to be on ground level. Fabulous in every way...with the river for swimming in summer as a beautiful and much needed option...it was very hot when we were there. BBQ facilities also avail.
A really clean and luxurious feel...just beautiful.
