Cort Cottage
Ranked #8 of 11 Three Rivers B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 4, 2009

My husband and I booked the Cort Cottage for 3 nights to visit Sequoia National Park. We were frustrated with the low reviews of the National Park Lodging, so we started looking for alternatives. The Cort Cottage was perfect for us! It was located 4 miles from the front gate of Sequoia National Park. The cottage itself is a one bedroom cottage located next to the house of Elsah Cort. We were delighted to find that the cottage was spacious for our needs. It contained a living room with large TV and DVD player, a kitchen with a kitchen table/chairs, microwave, fridge, oven, sink and coffee pot, a bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a bathroom with a toilet, shower and sink. Since we are newlyweds, we were happy to have a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists.

Our view from the living room of the mountains was amazing! We could even see as far away as Moro Rock in Sequoia Park. There was a small deck outside with 2 chairs and a covered umbrella and a table so we could enjoy the view. As we sat outside, a family of wild turkeys strolled by 10 feet from us! How cool!

When we arrived at the cottage, we were happy to find the kitchen stocked with breakfast foods: english muffins, bagels, cinnamon bread, cereal, oatmeal, eggs, grapefruit, strawberries, juice, milk, jam, coffee and tea. This was more than enough to feed us for three mornings. This was so convenient because we didn't have to drive into town for breakfast and could head directly to the park. We took Elsah's suggestion and stopped in one of the big cities along the way to get some dinner and lunch foods. We cooked at the cottage all three nights and saved a lot of money. It was nice to have some home cooked meals after 8 days on the road. We packed our lunches for the park as well.

We had fast internet service for the laptop that we brought with us, and quiet evenings to rest up from our days of hiking.

Elsah greeted us when we arrived and when we checked out. Other than that, we could reach her by telephone or by knocking on her front door. Since she had everything clearly outlined for us, we didn't need to call upon her during our stay.

In the cottage we found many journals of positive reviews from the people who have stayed there over the last 24 years. We were surprised that none of them posted these glowing reviews on Tripadvisor.com until now! If my husband and I came back to Sequoia, we will definitely stay at Cort Cottage!
