“Charming cabin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We stayed in Falcon for one night and wished we had booked a longer stay.
It's a large cabin with a great kitchen and very charming. Would stay there again if I was in the area and definitely recommend!
It was a 20 min drive to the General Sherman tree from here. Great location and great value.

Stayed in the "Columbine" cabin which is a very popular cabin and it was nice - has a fabulous deck! Across the street from the main lodge (there are two, actually) and just a short distance to the entrance of Sequoia Nat'l Park. A couple of downsides...I encountered a very rude employee upon checking in...condescending and snotty but I called her on it and received a personal apology from the owner. BONUS. The other is the carpet in the cabin. ICK. Smelled like fried food and carpet deodorizer. Not a good combo. Also, not enough instructions for the ceiling fan or cable TV and cabin lacked a binder of info and had to wait to get one... WI-FI was excellent. Three Rivers is a fun little town with cheap prices compared to other Nat'l Parks. Go to King's Canyon if you can...it's beyond words. Gateway Restaurant across the street is another amazing bonus, with AWESOME food. Fair warning: the road to the park is incredibly steep and scary. Overall? If I could conquer that road, I would go again and stay at this place.

Room Tip: There are several to choose from. Check out the videos the owner has uploaded.

Stayed at Sequoia Village Inn for one night with my husband and brought our dog. The location is excellent and it was very peaceful. Beautiful trees. Hummingbird Cottage is small but was just perfect for the two of us. We ate dinner out on our patio overlooking the pool. It was nice to find a dog friendly place.

Room Tip: Pet friendly hotel (but Sequoia doesn't allow pets on trails).

Sequoia Village Inn and its companion property just across the street are actually within walking distance of Sequoia NP. Of course you have to drive back in to see the sites.
We stayed for 4 days in the Alta Cottage. 2 queen beds in the bedroom, 1 double pull out in the livingroom, 1 bathroom with tub/shower combo ( the only unit with a tub) and an eat in kitchen. The outside of the cabin is very pretty with its wood siding and big covered porch with lots of seating. The inside was, what I found to be, quite strange. It seemed to have last been decorated in the early seventies, maybe. The shag carpeting in the bedroom really has to go. I dont think it is possible to properly clean shag. The furniture in the livingroom was all unmatched, not in a charming way. The room as you walked into it was not welcoming. Yet, somehow you could tell the owner cared about the property. It had nice small touches here and there. It is just that it could be a spectacular property with some work.
The beds were comfy enough and once my spouse figured out the shower control, I could have a nice soaking bath.
In the office across the street, they have a computer you can use to check email, etc - but not print boarding passes. Be aware there is no cell phone service here. There is, however, a land line phone on the property. It is inside a birdhouse. I had to use it several times at 6AM holding a flashlight and hoping to not be accosted by a bear, to call back east. An amusing visual!
Its proximity to Sequoia NP was a welcome change from the previous days when we were staying an hour away from Yosemite NP. There is so much driving with these parks to get from one site to another, we really appreciated how close we were to the park.
We would probably recommend this property - they have several units. Perhaps some of them are more updated. Mostly it was just the unwelcoming living room that bothered me.

We stayed in Alta for two days. The room is very clean and comfortable. We like the kitchen. They have everything you need. If you go with family and want save money and time to go out eating, choose the room with kitchen. The hotel is very close to the park. Good location and also very good view. We all love it. We will come back next time.

Our family of 5 stayed just for one night in the bigger Dogwood chalet (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms). The cabin was basic but more than adequate for our needs and was very clean. The swimming pool was small but a very welcome treat as it was really hot (still in the 90s at 9pm at night). The aircon worked well & the bed was comfortable.
We didn't use the kitchen amenities but it looked well equipped. Parking was free, right outside our chalet. The free wi-fi was not great and only 3 of us could connect.
We drove back into town for breakfast at We Three Bakery, which was excellent. Sequoia National Park entrance is right on the doorstep of the Inn, so really fab location.

Out family of 5 stayed in one of the larger cottages at the Inn on our way into Sequoia NP. This is a good gateway into the park but be prepared for a very curvy and hilly road into the park (one of the most curvy roads of our CA tour of Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia). The cottage was a 2 bedroom with a pull out couch and a full kitchen. It was an older cottage (Forest Cottage) that had been given a face lift. It could have been a little cleaner for my wife's tastes but it was sifficient for the one night we were there. There is a nice little restuarant (a little pricey) across the street that overlooks the river if you need a meal and then there are several restaurants in Three Rivers which is just a few miles back the road. We ate at the pizza place in town but I would pass on this and would try the Mexican restaurant as it looked good and had good reviews. Overall, it was a fine place to stay for the night but if you are staying for the week you might want to compare other places although there are limited places to stay in the area but you might find a decent rental house if you planned on staying longer than a few nights.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage (Forest Cottage) and it is on the lower level of the cottage and...
