About Sulfiati and Sharif Harris

Mr. and Mrs. Harris live next door to the cabin. Mr. Harris is a retired realtor, and Mrs. Harris runs the after school program at the local K-8 school. In the summer she runs Camp Badger (see http://www.campbadger.com) . We moved to this area about 14 years ago and love the quiet, small country town atmosphere. We can tell you what places to go up in the parks and around in this area, and will be easily available to respond to any needs you might have. Our daughter and family recently lived in this cabin. It has just been completely remodeled, with all new floors (kid friendly vinyl plank that looks like wood), new bathroom fixtures, etc. The cabin was built in 1938 and is authentic, with redwood shake siding, unfinished tree trunks supporting the porch, old-fashioned glass doorknobs, and lots of pine paneling.

Sulfiati and Sharif Harris purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Sulfiati and Sharif Harris chose Pinehurst

Staying in this cabin is like going back to a simpler time. It is decorated in a way that is authentic to an old-time cabin in the mountains. Even the china, glasses and kitchen tools are authentic to an earlier era. You will know you are in the mountains of California.....not in a standard motel that could be anywhere.

What makes this cabin unique

The large,cool front porch is a great place to relax and listen to the frogs at night, also wonderful for soaking up kid energy with the ping pong table and darts. We have a collection of board games in the cabin, and also a large monitor with a dvd player and a modest collection of dvd's the family will enjoy.

Great family vacation weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great! It was just as it was shown in the pictures, with even better views then we expected. It seems the owner has thought of everything, she had games, DVD's plenty of extra blankets and space heaters. The wood stove was a great source of heat, as it was snowing from time to time this past weekend. We went up to Kings Canyon Park, which was about a 20 minute drive from the cabin, it was nice to stay somewhere so close. Only downfall of this location is that there is very limited food options nearby, so just make sure you pack lots of food before you go up.

The cabin was clean, and stocked with most everything you can think of that you would need, plus more. The owner was very responsive to any inquiries we had, and was super friendly and informative. She came by to teach us how to use the wood stove on the first night and to see if there was anything we needed.

I would definitely recommend this cabin to any families that want to explore the Kings Canyon parks, or if you just want to get away and relax. We had snow on Sunday morning and it was a beautiful view, didn't want to leave! We will probably try to book this place again in the future.

Mixed bag

  • 3 of 5

There were some pros and cons to our stay.


The hosts were incredibly sweet people and were very accommodating.

The proximity to the park was great.

There were activities to do on the property when we got home in the evenings.

Our first night there, the sky was really clear and it was amazing for star gazing and listening to the frogs in the pond.

They had the stove setup and ready to go.


The bedroom situation was odd... the master bedroom access requires you to go through the bunkbed room (unless you are coming in from outside)... probably fine for a family with children, but was odd going with a group of adults.

We spotted a mouse a couple times in the living area and had some mouse poo to deal with. and didn't trust leaving out any kind of food (even packaged) on the counters or anything.

Be careful with the bathroom door. The knob was loose so it would not open from the inside.

We couldn't get the wifi to work at all, even in the master bedroom. We ended up being fine, didn't have to have wifi... the point was to get away, but just wanted to let others know since it was a main selling feature in the listing.

Watch your head going in and out of the property. The patio roof is low and if you are not paying attention you can hit your head on it.

The cabin (especially in the bathroom) had a lot of cobwebs.

The bathroom says it was remodeled... not sure the condition it was in before, but it was a little rough.

I know I sound negative, but overall the stay was fine. We had a great time on our trip... I think if your expectations are in line, this cabin could be great for you... based on the 4.5 stars, I was expecting a little more and as a group, we were underwhelmed. The goal of my review is not to tear this place down, but for fellow travelers to see and align their expectations with reality. it's a rustic, quirky, mountain cabin with some issues, but the owners are lovely folks and you are a short drive from Kings Canyon. It was fine for what it was, but the rating of the property itself set an expectation that it doesn't live up to.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review and for letting us know what needs to be attended to. I am happy for people to see the pros and cons of the cabin. The bathroom doorknob has already been fixed, and I have gotten after the cobwebs & the mouse evidence in that one area. I am sorry the WiFi didn't work for you - others have been able to use it - I will check it out. About the structure of the building - this is an authentic mountain cabin, built in 1938, and we have felt to honor that. The bathroom has been remodeled but to make it truly modern would be a major building project. The photo on the listing is honest and shows that it is small. The same goes for the low roof on the porch. We have hoped that the amenities of ping-pong, darts, board games, dvd player, a large yard and proximity to the Parks would compensate for this to make it a good place for a family getaway..

The property was a fair size, small home type of cabin. Plenty of beds for many people. We enjoyed having a quite play to relax at and play some games. Darts and much more. Thanks for having us over.

Cozy Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here over the weekend! Traveling from busy LA, we were excited to get off the grid for the weekend to check out the Sequoia National Forest/Kings Canyon! Super close and easy to access from this cabin. This was an easy to find, affordable place to stay and has that cozy cabin-in-the-mountains feel! Full kitchen w/ utensils and equipment to cook, very comfortable bed in master bedroom, and plenty of space to stretch out. Our host had the fireplace already prepped and ready to go for us which quickly heated the cabin! There were also plenty of space heaters to supplement. We will definitely be back when we visit Sequoia National Park again!

January 12-15

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there January 12-15 2018. It was nice and warm so we got to hear the frogs and see the stars! We would go out for the whole day to the national parks and then come home for dinner and boardgames. The kids loved the ping pong table and the darts! It was a nice stay and get away! Owner is super friendly and helpful!

Our cabin is 20 minutes from the north entrance to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks, an hour east of Fresno, California. We have a map with great places to go in the parks in the photo gallery on our listing. The Grants Grove visitor center is in the parks about 10 minutes from the entrance. They have a restaurant, museum, general store and post office, and it is a short drive to the General Grant tree.

If you go further up that road, which is a continuation of Hwy 180 you will drive along the canyon and eventually descend the canyon and drive along the Kings River. You will go by Boyden Caverns, where you can stop and take a 40 minute tour. There is a gift shop, and then a climb up into the entrance.

Continue up Hwy 180 and you will come to Grizzly Falls, just off the road on the left. A very tall waterfall with a picnic area and restrooms...a great place to stop for a break. There is another visitor's center, Cedar Grove, after that off the road on the left.

Continue on about 10 miles and you will come to a favorite place, Zumwaldt Meadows. Park in the lot (there are restrooms there), and then walk along the river to the right and you will come to a bridge across the river and a wonderful rocky beach where you can wade and swim in the river. There is a loop trail which takes you through a meadow, and around and up along the rocks, and back to the beach.

Back down at the entrance to the Parks: If you turn right at the entrance to the Parks you will go down to Sequoia National Parks. This will lead you first to the back entrance to Hume Lake beach, great for swimming in the summer, and then to the trailheads for various hikes. Further down you will go by the General Sherman Tree, and then to Lodgepole Visitor Center, which has a museum, large shop, and restaurant, and is adjacent to the trailhead to Tokopah Falls. Past this is the road to Moro Rock and then to Crystal Cave. Further along you will eventually come out into the town of Three Rivers.
