In short: a charming and quaint little piece of paradise. Mars is an absolute sweetheart and this cottage like getaway located right in the river is the perfect place to recharge and escape the hustle and bustle of modern living (though you will still have great wi-fi connection!). The location is easily reachable from main cities San Fran and Vegas... More

A quaint little place on the river. We got in early so we enjoyed the water and rocks. The room had three beds, cozy for 4 of us. The porch and master had views of the water. Refrig, micro etc. A fire in the evening. Just a perfect stop before or after seeing the Sequoia NP. Highly Recommended!

it is a very lovely place. sleeping near the creek and calmed by the water sound. Luckily we checked in early and spend half day in the water. (Bonus: there are fool's gold in the sand if you want to have fun). Great breakfast (I wish I could eat more the secret recipe bread).

We stayed here for 3 nights during our visit to Sequoia National Park. From the moment we walked thru that blue gate, we knew we had made a very good decision. Mars is an amazing hostess. She is so friendly and knowledgable. We stayed in the Master Room with our 2 kids ages 8 &9. It was very spacious and... More

Very nice and charming place. We stayed there only one night during our road trip, but it was very good stop. The location is perfect, close to the Sequoia park, near to the river with beautiful countryside. We liked the outside area with fireplace and calming atmosphere. The room was clean, the river view was excellent. The owner was friendly... More

Awesome place! We are a family of 5. Mom & Dad & 3 kids (6,8,10) We stayed in the Master Room #1. Mars the proprietor is amazingly sweet and very knowledgeable. The rooms face the river and we went swimming after a hot day in Sequoia National Park. BEWARE THERE ARE LEACHES IN THE RIVER! Harmless but creepy.... Great place... More

I'm so glad I celebrated my birthday in Rio Sierra River House in Three Rivers with my family and brother. I booked the Panorama Room because I loved spacious kitchen. Mars, the owner is very hospitable and accommodating she offered us an extra cot in the room and for my brother to stay in the Garden Room for FREE. Overall... More

As we drove past the Rio Riverhouse on our way up the mountain, I had my doubts. I reminded myself of all the wonderful reviews and remained sure with our decision. When we returned from seeing the giant Sequoia forest (words cannot describe how amazing it is), we were greeted by Mars. She is so warm and welcoming like the... More
