“More than I expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2010

The Three Rivers B&B was great. For the one night we were there, our hosts built a [real wood] fire in our fireplace in our bedroom, and also built a fire in the play room. The free bottle of wine and chocolates were appreciated.

We used the hot tub, and enjoyed seeing all the stars (as it is dark in that area at night). There was an outdoor fireplace, too, but it wasn't used that night.

The breakfast the next morning was a feast, with tons of fruit. I even had several different fruit compotes on my french toast.

Peter and Leah were both friendly and informative. And speaking of informative, you get an 11 page Email (!) from them when you book, with tons of information and directions for things in the area (including detailed instructions on how to get to their house).

I would definitely go there again.

The location is very good and the room is spacious. It is near the Sequoia National Park. Lodgings in the area are quite average and Three Rivers is comparably a good choice. The fresh fruit with the breakfast were fabulous.

Leah was very willing to give information about SNP and knew quite a bit. She was nice enough to change our breakfast hour to a 1/2 an hour earlier. However, she suggested that the children share a hot drink (instead of giving each one a hot drink). I agreed to it but at breakfast time when the boys wanted another hot drink because they liked it, her comment was "THE KITCHEN IS CLOSED". This had really put me off because she was the one to suggest sharing a drink because they might not like it. Then to soften her comment about the kitchen being closed, she said she "DIDN'T HAVE ANY MORE MILK TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE". What is this?! The idea of a B&B is not only resting but having BREAKFAST! Good grief! :(

We stayed with Leah and Peter at their lovely home in Three Rivers during August, and were charmed by their welcome. Three Rivers bed and breakfast is perfect for visiting Sequoia National Park, and we stayed two nights here to make the most of this beautiful area. Leah was very helpful in guiding us to the places we wanted to see and we would have missed the splendid section of the Kaweah River near hospital rock without her guidance. We saw bears in the park too - an amazing sight to a Brit!

The room we stayed in was comfortable and had patio doors leading through a gate to a walk down to the Kaweah River itself. We were offered a free bottle of wine on arrival, and the breakfast was excellent - Peter's "fruit monster" was creative, fun and set us up for the day!

I'd recommend Three Rivers B&B to anyone staying in the area - it's in a very quiet, peaceful area away from the main road, and is very reasonably priced. I hope we'll be back one day!

Enjoyable peaceful stay. Hostess was very nice, accomodating, and informative. Rooms pristine and welcoming. Breakfast very good, with lots of options. We stayed at another B&B the next night because Three Rivers was booked, and we regretted it. You won't go wrong with Three Rivers B& B!

I stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend, and felt like it was like staying with friends. That of course has its pros and cons. On the positive side, the owners Leah & Peter are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They were able to provide recommendations for restaurants and things to do in Sequoia. Our room was spotless and had a large bathroom. The house itself borders a tributary of the Kaweah River, so we actually walked down the creek and waded into the water. They served a really tasty breakfast, and we were able to order exactly what we wanted at a time we wanted. On the negative side, the location still required over an hour drive to the main attractions in the park (Giant Forest, etc). The beds & pillows were really uncomfortable, and the soundproofing wasn't great. We were woken up early by the cooking sounds in the kitchen. There was also no maid service during the stay (beds were not made, room not cleaned). Overall, if you like staying in personable B&B's off the beaten path, you might like this. For me, given the time it takes to drive into Sequoia and my preference for full-service amenities, I would probably stay somewhere else.

I went down to Three Rivers for rafting down the Kaweah, and wanted to kick back for a day so as not to drive in ultra-early from LA. I couldn't have picked a nicer play (thanks to Travelocity ratings) than what's essentially a great room in a huge, rustically located house, filled with tons of amenities and a great movie selection. Wonderful owners who made sure I was well taken care of. They make a mean quiche! Highly recommended if you're going to that end of Sequoia, or are doing a rafting trip through the equally cool White Water Voyages.
