Wildflowers!! March through April

**SPECIAL** Free pool heating Oct, March 17 - May with 3 night or longer stay

This cabin has 2 queen bedrooms, one with attached bath and a second large bathroom. A sleeper sofa is in the Great Room.

A long time spring along the old Jordan Trail, Bear Spring is now the source of water for this beautiful and unique vacation cabin and swimming pool. For peace and quiet this rural property (not in a resort development) cannot be beat.

This 1800 sq. foot solar-powered hilltop cabin sits on a very private, gated 2 acre estate bordering Giant Sequoia National Monument in the Southern Sierra, just 12 miles from the Giant Sequoia groves at Balch Park.

At 2500 ft elevation, the treed park-like grounds have 360 degree views looking out to Mt. Dennison, Blue Ridge and the valley below. The home has two queen bedrooms, living room with sleeper sofa, love seat and sofa, two bathrooms, full kitchen with bar and breakfast area, formal dining area and game room.

Outdoor areas include a wrap around deck, covered back porch with seating, deck with seating by pool and seating pool-side.

The pool is fed by spring water and pool chemistry is kept strictly balanced for hygiene.

Pool heating is available for an extra fee October, April and May and is free with a 3 night stay or longer. Heating is not necessary June- mid October.

This upscale vacation home boasts everything that you are looking for to provide a fun, peaceful and relaxing time for your family or small group of friends. An open plan with high, exposed beam ceilings and plenty of comfortable seating create a pleasant social atmosphere. Clerestory windows and French doors bring the outdoors in and provide plenty of light. The beautiful spring fed swimming pool will keep everyone cool and entertained in the summer, and the wood stove will warm winter evenings.

A comprehensive hiking and recreation binder is provided at the house with maps and descriptions of local hikes, Big Trees, swimming and fishing holes, waterfalls, and scenic drives and horseback rides to help you plan your time.

Dog owners can take their dogs on the leash onto the Giant Sequoia National Monument trails in this area as opposed to the National Park where dogs are not allowed on trails.

The Master Bath has been recently renovated with antique vanities, a claw foot bathtub and a travertine double shower with rain shower heads. Little luxuries like Wifi, DVD library, high thread count sheets, plush towels, down comforters make this luxury cabin extra special.

The game room, with classic billiard table and tournament quality Foosball table, and outdoor ping pong table hoop-shooting and tether ball provide fun without ever having to leave the property. When you do venture out, there are lakes, rivers, waterfalls, winter snow and big trees only a few miles away.

Avoid hectic tourist crowds and discover the quiet beauty of the Giant Sequoia forests, rivers, lakes and waterfalls in Balch Park and Mountain Home State Forest within Sequoia National Monument. Ride horses among the Giants, hike, fish, bike and cross country ski. This cabin is located near the quaint village of Springville with restaurants, shops, local entertainment, a new park and visitors center.

Come for the Springville Sierra Professional Rodeo and Jackass Mail Run Weekend in April, wildflower touring March through May, bull riding events in August and Apple Festival in October.

Holton vacation

  • 5 of 5

Watching nature wake up in the morning is amazing. This cabin is a great place for the family to get away from the rush of the city and be together again. We really didn't want to leave the property too much but this area has a lot to offer the outdoors men. We hiked, fished and picked wild black berries up the road from the cabin. Sherry gave us some pointers on where to go make our vacation even better. I will be telling everyone I know to book a get away here. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.

Visit the Sequoias Without the Traffic!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our four night stay at Bear Spring Cabin. My sister and I brought our families with kids ages 11-14 together from SF and LA to meet here in between the two cities. It was a wonderful getaway. So quiet and peaceful up there. The house and guest house are very spacious with up to date kitchen, excellent Weber grill and outdoor covered patio furniture on nice deck, great pool table and fusball table, tons of DVDs, COOL airconditioning and refreshing pool. It was HOT in late July, and we knew it would be, but the pool and airconditioning made it all so easy to relax.

I think the best part is that it is only a 40 minute drive up the road to Balch Park. This was a beautiful park and I wish we had had even more time to explore it. We had one day to hike and one day to go horseback riding at the Balch Park Pack Station. It is gorgeous up there - and at least 20 degrees cooler than in Springville. We were very thankful to be so near the big trees without the hassle of any traffic or crowds.

We also REALLY enjoyed our rafting trip down the Kaweah River with Good Times Adventures although the town of Three Rivers is at least 1 hour 15 minutes away, it was worth it.

Clean, comfortable cabins perfect for families in one of California's loveliest places.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, son, father, stepmom, and their little dog. We all had a great time. When we weren't hiking and picnicking in the gorgeous forrests surrounding these cabins, we had a ton of fun playing pool and cooling off in the swimming pool. We cooked and grilled wonderful meals in the evenings. The kitchen is well appointed. We enjoyed the board games, movies and books here. Shelly is a generous host who responded to all my emails right away. I highly recommend these cabins.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The area was beautiful. The kitchen was very handy, with many extra pantry items and plenty of good quality dishes and cookware, also had a bunch of extra small appliances (we loved the coffee grinder and french press). We enjoyed playing in the game room. The decks were nice and clean. We cooked on the grill, ate breakfast outside, enjoyed the birds, and relaxed in the comfortable outdoor furniture in the evenings. The inside of the cabin was spacious, clean, well decorated and included plenty of towels. We would definitely come back.
