Cyndi's Snowline Lodge
Reviewed June 8, 2011

this is a building owned by a lady named cyndi. she has great intentions of creating a great resort but it has a way to go still. the building has 4 upstairs rooms for guests. the property had several, maybe 4-5 campers that i think had people living in them. the room was clean and dry. heat was via a space heater. there was a pot of coffee and waffles provided in the morning complimentry. i had quite a time communicating with her prior to my arrival. the location is great in the beautiful mountains just a few minutes from the entrance to kings canyon natl park. with that said, based on a concern for the safety of the structure, and feeling that my families safety may have been too much at risk, I am going to recommend not staying at this place.

I posted a review about this lovely place under the "Snowline Motel" Just wanted to reiterate how much we enjoyed our stay! Cyndy and Jeff have really worked hard to overcome the previous owners bad rep.... The rooms are extremely clean, the service was great, the location perfect! Thanks for a wonderful weekend! We will be back!!!

We happened on this place on the way out of Kings Canyon. We were going to camp, but the weather didn't cooperate...The owners, Cindy and Jeff are very nice and friendly. The rooms are unique and very clean. Loved the breakfast on the deck! they provided coffee, tea, milk, oatmeal, toast,and make you own waffles every morning. As another reviewer put it, the downstairs is a work in progress and has lots of potential. There are only 6 rooms, so the motel has a nice comfy feeling to it. They sent us to a resturaunt for dinner, down the hill a bit where the food was very good and we even got a discount. I would stay here again!!!

On our way to Kings Canyon we bumped into Cindys Snowline Lodge in the evening hours. It is a very charming place, and the owners gave us a good price for a very clean and comfortable room. They are very friendly and welcoming people, and are currently hard working to renovate the building, after the former owner had left it in a very bad state. We had a nice self-made dinner and breakfast on the porch. Free Wi-fi is included, but too slow for online phone connections.
Bring some earplugs along if you have a soft sleep, the frogs make quite some noise during the night.

This place is fascinating! If you want to get away from the tedium of standard motel chains, try it for size. The rooms are clean and spacious with fabulous old-fashioned, handmade furniture. Bull-frogs chorus from the garden is a bonus, as is the log-cabin style porch. Friendly and fantasically helpful owners, who even went into town for us to pick up dinner and a couple of beers. Smoking is allowed on the front porch. Downstairs is still a work-in-progress but has intriguing objets d'art, like a manequin on the piano dressed up to party! If you want somewhere to remember for all the right reasons, that you could base a book on, stay here. We both loved it!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking porch are best.

yndi's is the friendliest place we have ever stayed in. Even during renovation, which is slowly transforming potential to greater amenities, Cyndi provides all the comforts of home in an ultra-clean room. If you are looking for the Ritz this isn't it, yet. If you are looking for hospitality in a rustic and friendly environment, it is Cyndi's. I spent evenings gazing at stars from the upstairs front porch and in the morning enjoyed coffee admiring the mountainside. Cyndi bent over backwards to make my wife and I comfortable to the point we stayed five nights instead of the planned one or two. When we visit Sequoia again we will never stay anywhere else. By the way the Lodge is 10 minutes at max from the Park entrance.

My husband, and I, Stayed 2 day's at cyndi's snowline lodge, the rooms are warmly decorated,
very clean, we loved that you awake in the morn to go out on the balcony, pour a cup of coffee, drink in the sunshine, and sound of birds...
Cyndi has worked hard to change some of the bad reviews, from owner before her.
We found our stay one that left a warm, and memorable feeling!
We would recomend her lodge to all!
If you are looking for luxurys of home.. Tv this wont be for you.
If you came for the beauty that surrounds you, a beautifull place nestled in the mountains,
with great access to all Sequoia National park has to offer, I suggest cyndi's snowline lodge!
