“A hidden gem in Three Rivers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

The old adage of 'location, location, location' could have been written for the River Jewel suites in Three Rivers. It would be difficult to find a more stunning location to spend time in this wonderful part of California. We stayed in the Seuoia Charm apartment on the second floor which was an absolute joy. The room is huge and the quirkiness of the decor just adds to it's charm and we both absolutely loved it. But then you walk out onto the private balcony complete with chair, table, sun lounges, and barbecue and your transported to a whole new world! The river outside is literally yards from your room and is quite simply stunning. Sitting on the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine listening to the river roar down from the mountains just takes you to an altogether more peaceful place! A walk down to the river reveals a number of places on the bank hidden from the house that have tables, chairs and a hammock which are again perfect for relaxing. Breakfast is not included but there is a microwave and fridge provided and local shops nearby to buy provisions. This is truly a magical place and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

This is an amazing place but it is not a bed and breakfast, i.e. there is no breakfast. What there is , is an enormous room with a great bathroom, and more. The best part however, is outside. If it was only the private patio wtih shaded table and chairs, grill with briquets and tools, and beautiful plantings that would be wonderful but its only the beginning. Paths lead down to four beautiful settings overlooking the rushing Kaweah River. Each with a different view and arrangement of chairs, chaises, a hammock, etc. leading down to rocks in the river that you can climb on to. Each setting is different, secluded, and wonderful. We planned spend the day back in Sequoia but instead spent the entire, restful day at the River Jewel. What a great place.

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!
