We really enjoyed our stay at the Buckeye Tree Lodge, which is situated just before the Sequoia National Park entrance.
Having on the one hand the ambiance of a cabin, while at the same time enjoying the luxuries of A/C , a nice TV and a bathroom was a very agreeable combination for us. The bed was comfortable as well.
The river behind the lodge was great to cool off, especially during the hot and humid weather we had at the time.
The breakfast, here criticized by many people, we thought was just right to get you started in a day of Park exploration. To grind your own coffee was actually pretty neat and you were assured that it tasted fresh.
It was also very nice to eat your breakfast outside at the garden table, while enjoying the view on the river and the landscape.
As mentioned above, the proximity to the park’s entrance is also a major plus point.
All in all, we can definitely recommend this place if you’re visiting Sequoia National Park!
