My family of 5 plus my parents stayed here in July. I was a little worried beforehand because of the reviews on this site and others so I emailed Rose with lots of questions about a month before our trip. Rose was very helpful and alleviated all of my concerns. We stayed in the largest of the cabins which sleeps 10 - 2 rooms on the ground floor with a queen bed in each, a queen/full size futon in the living room and two bunkbeds in an overhead loft. You pick up the key to the cabin at the Kaweah General Store and the large cabin is located literally just down the street. It was very clean inside and seemed very well stocked with towels, pillows, blankets and dishes/ kitchen appliances. There were even little packs of coffee and mini shampoos and soaps -- just like at a hotel. Rose let me know there was no maid service and that was fine for us. You are advised not to drink the water from the taps, so we were provided 2 gallons of water that were already cooled inside the refrigerator. Rose said we could get more if needed from the store, but we didn't run out. The Kaweah River is located just a few feet from the back of the cabin. It was a great view! At the time we were there, the river was too rapid for my kids to jump in but it was still nice to be so close. The backyard also had a badminton/volleyball net, barbecue grill and lots of deck chairs. A closet also contained a washer and dryer, but we didn't use so not sure if they were operational.
We brought most of our food with us but also made a trip to the Village Market which is located within walking distance from the cabin. There we picked up perishibles like milk and ground beef. I also need to mention that the cabin had 2 a/c wall units which kept the temperature inside very, very comfortable and cool.
The cabin was within 5 miles to the entrance to the park so that was very convenient. Lake Kaweah is also very close but it didn't seem to have a designated beach or picnic area. Mostly we saw lots of boats at the marina area and some swimmers off the boat launch areas. I wasn't comfortable letting my young kids go swimming there so we didn't visit the Lake.
The only real drawbacks for us were that the cabin is located right off the main street of Three Rivers so traffic noise was an issue one night. Also, on the website, the cabin description says there is a half bathroom in the loft with a sink and toilet. There isn't. So one bathroom for 7 people was a challenge. Also on the website, it mentions a rec room for guests. But this bigger cabin is not located near the other smaller cabins so we never saw that rec room.
Other than those minor things, we really enjoyed our stay and will recommend it to others.
