Arrived in three rivers from Yosemite. The place is very lovely with a massive bed, en suite shower, very modern large dining room shared by the guests with lots of food and conversation each morning. Massive tv with cable in the open plan dining/tv room. Beautifull garden which banks onto the south fork of the river which is nice for a cold beer in the evening. The room has air con and a large fan essential in the very hot weather. Three rivers is a long thin small place alongside the river. It has a few stores for supplies, shops seelling antiques, local produce and holiday souveneers. Some cafes and a few cheap eats with very nice food. Theres a mexican/american diner five minutes walk from the place. It was very hot and a car is a must. Walking into Three Rivers is a hike in the hot weather. Its a small friendly place and other towns arewithing easy reach. The owners of the place arevery friendly and helpfull with any questions you need answering. The Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are only a few miles up the road and are the biggest attraction. Think Yosemite without the tourists. Loads of things to see in both. Lots of tight winding roads. Kings Canyon is a bit of a drive but so wild and stunning i prefered it to Yosemite.
So all in all River dance is a quiet, very well appointed place. Very clean, great food, very well priced and an ideal base to visit the national parks.
