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 Gold Country / High Sierra

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.

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.

We enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It had everything we needed. Our kids loved the games they had stocked and running around outside. Owners are extremely nice and helpful.

A nice, quiet rustic cabin near the parks.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at this place while visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon NP. The owner was very friendly and helpful. They even let us pick apples off their trees! The only downside was there seems to be a plumbing problem- the sinks and showers were very slow to drain.

Owner's Response: Yes! When I went over to clean today I noticed that the drains were clogged. This must have happened after you came because it was working when we prepared the cabin for you. We just figured out the reason and it should be fixed by tonight. Thanks for the good review otherwise! We enjoyed having your family stay at the cabin.

Great location! Clean cabin! Friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival, we found the cabin to be clean and well stocked. We met Sulfiati the next day and enjoyed getting to know her, as well as the history of the cabin/property. The cabin is about 1/2 hour from Grant Grove in King's Canyon and a perfect location to determine time spent in Sequoia or King's due to the intersection at the entrance of the park. We would stay here again!

Lovely, peaceful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin and it served as a great jump-off for hiking in Sequoia. All of our needs were met (including, a sweet little vase of flowers and a note on the door as a welcome). Our hosts graciously helped us find groceries and ensured we were comfortable, quickly responding to questions.

We would come back to this cabin again.

Thanks for making our time with you like home.

P.s. Please thank the gentlemen next door for us as they were so kind and brought over their turkey and let us feed the goats - much to the delight of our toddler. She loved those goats.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for this lovely review! Yes, the gentleman next door is very kind...I knew he was raising goats and big white Pyrenees puppies but I didn't know he had a turkey too!
