My wife and I just came back from 6 months in NY and were looking for some downtime near Sequoia. We searched for cabins and Buckeye came up. The lady who helped us was very thorough and helpful in finding a cabin to fit our needs. We stayed in a small cabin named Hummingbird, perfect for 2 (and a small dog). Fresh towels upon request. No cell phone service and the wi-fi is not great, but it was nice to unplug a bit. Gas heater fireplace kept our place toasty. There is a phone on grounds for use. I'm sure had we stayed closer to the main office the wi-fi would have been much better. I had to go outside to get steady wi-fi. Our room was located right next to the pool, and had a patio, lounge chair and BBQ. Fresh coffee and a grinder made for great starts to our days and one day turned into two that turned into three! The room was small, but we didnt stay inside much. Bed was cozy. The river was across the street which was the only bummer, but just a quick walk to see it. A $20 Sequoia pass is good for 7 days! To get to a spectacular sunset view you can drive 15 up the mountain or 20 minutes for an epic view (big turnaround). Perfect for photos, time lapse, video, etc. (Remember when shooting into the sun, use your flash! :) The giant Sequoias...Must. Go. See!
Overall, great little place, price and service!
