My wife and I have been frequenting the Buckeye Tree Lodge every year since the early nineties. It's across the road from the S-V Inn, right on the river, and our favorite getaway spot -- only 210 miles from LA, a 3.5-hour drive. This was the first time we came with friends and stayed in the cabins (Glacier). Fabulous, cozy, tastefully decorated, and sweetly tucked away in the forest. Couldn't be any better. You can still hear the sound of water flowing over giant granite rocks nearby. Both resorts are charming. We recommend the rooms of the Lodge on the river for those couples who like to bask in the back patio and watch the river or walk 20 seconds to get to the water. The S-V Inn is on the hill up above, and much better for larger groups, some with multiple bedrooms. We like them both and keep coming back. In late March or early April you can experience two seasons at the same time: spring, with a plethora of flowers and colors in bloom where both lodges are located, and winter, only 16 miles up the road, a mere 40-minute drive to about 7000 feet in elevation, and tons of snow everywhere. The only place where those 2000-year-old giant sequoias thrive.We strongly recommend Sequoia Village Inn and Buckeye Tree Lodge any time of year. The crew is friendly, flexible, welcoming, and helpful. The landscape is just amazing. There is no place else like it on this earth.
