SEQUOIA RIVERFRONT CABINS. Three Rivers, CA on the Kaweah river, below the entrance to Sequoia National Park, a few are rustic "old fashioned" cabins ( # 1 - 2 & 3 ) not yet rebuilt and some are newly built cabins all located on the river in a rustic rural wild setting. (no paved parking lot) I would have been happy in the old cabins. Our friends where in old # 3. We had newly rebuilt # 5. Our room was brand new, small, tight & clean & adequate. A nice window on the river side that we left open all night. We had a Queen bed. Flat screen TV on wall if you need it. My wife did not like the pedestal sink in bath. No place to put anything! I took a night stand and put it in the bathroom for her. Tile and wood floors. Could use a small carpet to get sand off of feet! All rooms had chairs & tables behind them on river side. Some rooms had Barbeques. A common area room with microwave, treadmill etc. A common area fire pit & chairs with a supply of fire wood on a patio overlooking river. (bring Lighter fluid and paper & mabye a hatchet?), Picnic tables, A very nice rustic get away to nature. Especially if you are former Idahoan's who live in LA like we do. Some decent restaurants are nearby. I will review a Mexican place called "Serrano's" down river and a River side Diner / Bar called "River View" upriver separately. Note: It is located just outside the entrance to Sequoia National Park. Lots of white water rafters going by as we sat outside here and at the "River View Restaurant & Lounge (Sports bar menu). We enjoyed the sound of the river, watching the rafters go by and the spring bloom. Cost was $97.90 a night double occupancy Queen bed on 06.07.2011. Three Rivers, Ca was a great overnight stop on our journey to Fish Camp at the south entrance to Yosemite! The web site is, ( Sequoiarivercabins.com ) Check in is at the Kaweah General Store. NOTE: Check your room key number. They gave me the wrong keys and it is a bit of a drive back to the store. Also, be sure and ask for your free room bag ice and bottled water for drinking available at the General store. The room water in Bath is river water and should probably not be drank. I was not told this at checking. This is not a fancy place! It is a bit rustic with well worn grounds. We liked it.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new cabins.

Our family stayed here while visiting Sequoia National Park recently. I have mixed emotions about the cabins.

Here are the good things about our stay:
1. The location is very close to the park entrance. It's an easy jaunt into the park in the morning before the crowds arrive.
2. The cabins are right on a river, so the view out the back window is gorgeous. The kids splashed around on the riverbanks and had a blast.
3. The deluxe cabin was great for a family. It has a bedroom downstairs with a king sized bed and a loft upstairs that could sleep four more. Lots of room! It also has a kitchen, so you could prepare your breakfast and pack picnic lunches for your day out. (Be sure to take a lunch. I never saw any food in the park.) And it had Direct TV, so there are lots of channels to choose from when you're winding down at night.
4. They have a common area that has a pool table, foosball table, and some gym equipment. Again, very old and dirty. But the kids had fun learning how to play pool.
5. The guy that took care of the property was really nice and helpful.

Now, the bad parts:
1. The cabin was FILTHY! There was a layer of dust on everything and cob webs in every corner. When you walked around barefoot, you could feel the dirt on the floor. Yuck! It seemed like no one had used the cabin in a very long time.
2. The bugs were out of control! As soon as something spilled on the kitchen counter, there were ants on it. I had to continually dump the trash outside, so we didn't have a full blown infestation. And every time the front door opened, flies would come in. You couldn't get in and out fast enough to keep them from getting in the cabin.
3. The cabin is RIGHT on the highway. We opened our window to listen to the peaceful sound of the river, but those sounds were drowned out by all of the street noise.
4. The price was very expensive for the quality of the property. We stayed in a similar setting near Yosemite on the same trip. The price was LESS than this one and the cabin and grounds were immaculate!
5. Check in is about a mile down the road at the General Store. So be sure to stop there first or you will have to go back through town to get your key. It's an unusual set up that was confusing after a long day on the road.

So, as you can see, there are good and bad things about this cabins. If I go back to Sequoia, I will look around and see what other options are around the park.

Mess up your reservation , don't answer phone or Email ( too Busy) ,make you waste your time and ruin everything ( because then everywhere it's booked). Avoid and don't trust .Don't worry , they'll tell you that they are very sorry , they can.

Th place offers three cabins: small and basic, big with full kitchen equipped, and one in between. We took the smallest as we were on a budget, and it was a great value. The room equipped with coffee macer facilities, refrigerator, TV, and Wifi was comfortable and quite. The cabins are just on a river bank, and you bath the river water. In evening you may relax in a chair on a riverbank or party with BBQ - they provide the amenities needed. Drinking water waits in a refrigerator and is complimentary. The host was very nice and helpful. A general store is a short ride from the place, and there are a few local restaurants in a close vicinity. Altogether, it was a great value (actually the cheapest we found in Three rivers), conveniently located - and very close to the Sequoia park entrance.
