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 16 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. The cabin has 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.

Very nice rustic cabin
Location to the National Park was convenient.
Secluded mountain full cabin, close to Sequoia entrance
We had the experience of staying too far from Yosemite, so I was glad this cabin is only about 30 minutes from Sequoia. It is a treacherously winding mountain road, where you are steadily climbing for miles, and it was good advice to get groceries from a town beforehand. The cabin is not air conditioned and we found it to be too hot in the 80 degree weather, even at night and with fans. It is an old cabin, so the wood is authentically aged, thin and creaky. The shower is a tin stall, which feels uncomfortable, even for a tiny person. That said, everything else was really wonderful: 2 bedrooms, plenty of good quality bedding, full kitchen, dvd collection, patio, garden to eat out of, pups, farm animals right outside the door, beautiful mountain sunset from the property, and most of all, a very welcoming, helpful hostess.
Thanks very much for this honest response. I regret that it was too hot for you and next summer may look into air conditioning, but it isn't that hot very often. It is fine with me for people to know that the cabin is old and the shower stall is small, because that is the truth and we can't do much about it without rebuilding the place. And the roads....well that is going to be true whenever you come up here to the mountains. I appreciate all the good points you mention and am very glad that you felt welcomed!
Ms Harris was very nice and welcoming. The cabin is very old but on good shape.
very good hospitality
above expectations- all you need is there
Super cozy and private
My friends loved me for chosing this cabin for out stay. We wished to be far from civilization to enjoy the nature and it was exactly like that. The cabin is super cute, make you feel like Alice in Wonderland. And the sound of surrounding nature is incredible. I traveled with my puppy and she was just the whole time running around the cabin and had the best time. I am definitelly going back. Everything was super clean and that ping pong table and dards entertained us for hours. Very cool.
Beautiful cabin in a very beautiful area
The cabin was very clean and cozy. Very comfortable beds and I loved the outdoor area. Would definitely recommend this place. I only wish we could have stayed longer!
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.
Generally, check in time is 3:00 and check out time is 12:00. We may make exceptions in some cases...please contact us.
