My husband and I stayed at the river jewel recently. It was simply amazing from the quality of the room, everything was top notch, bed linen, quality fixtures and fittings, amenities and above all the location. It's set on the river and the owners go out of their way to simply provide everything you need, plenty of chairs by the river including loungers and tables. It has a fantastic bathroom and a small kitchen area well stocked with a microwave and fridge. We honestly struggled to get ourselves out to do our planned hike in Sequoia national park. It's so tranquil, quiet and peaceful and it definitely ranks up there with one of the best places I have ever stayed. We actually went out for a quick dinner so we could rush back and sit by the river. We did not want to leave ever!
