This is not your ordinary motel. Surrounded on all sides by beautiful hills and meadows, set back well from the road, it's the perfect launch point for a visit to Sequoia and Kings Canyon. We stayed in a "kitchen cottage" with our two kids and dog. We had a full fridge, kitchen table, couch etc. There is a full DVD and video library for the kids to borrow a movie and watch in the room. There are a couple of goats and sheep for the kids to visit out back. There is a nice pool (unheated), a swingset and slide for the kids. The lawn is nicely maintained and our kids had a ball rolling around on it. We took a beautiful springtime walk down to the rushing river and it was one of the highlights of our trip (beware of tics though, we picked up a few). The river is pristine and tumbles over large boulders, with sandy banks for the kids to play on. The owners are helpful and recommend nearby restaurants etc.
