What an amazing performance from a family owned business! Really well done and I can't wait to come back with my family.
Truth be told, I was here with my family about 25 years ago. The place has been updated has all of the features that I remembered and loved.
The location is perfect. Very close to Sequoia. Very close to town. Right on the river. Yes, ON the river. Great hiking, great swimming (for those who are comfortable), great pool. Lovely playground for the kids with volleyball and tether ball.
BBQ's available for grilling. In fact, this creates a really nice sense of community here as many families sit on their porches sharing food and drinks.
Pool is clean and warm. This was wonderful after the drive.
The rooms could not have been cleaner if they tried. Some have complained about the signs indicating that each guest needs to clean up after him or herself with respect to the dishes...There is good reason for this. If you don't do it, because of the heat, ants will invade and make a mess for everyone. Seriously, grow up and do your own dishes.
Highlight, however, is the staff and owners. When they found out that I enjoy baking cookies, they made sure that I had a brand new cookie sheet. Seriously! What amazing service that made me and my family feel right at home.
The goats, sheep, dogs, and cats were simply amazing. My kids even got to feed them (with special permission of course...the animals are on strict diets and the owners were amazingly accommodating).
This was actually my bad as I can't blame the hotel...it took a while for the a/c to cool the room because when I turned on the fan, I didn't activate the cooling unit. I can't blame the hotel for having bad directions...this was entirely my fault ("step one: turn on fan. step two: turn on cooling unit." For those of you keeping score at home, if you stop after step one, the room won't get cool.)
Nothing ugly...great stay, great staff, great experience with the owners. Wonderful!!
