Property Details

Updated: May 23, 2015
Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 2 adults & 2 children

This romantic cabin is within the Giant Sequoia National Monument at 3800' elevation with a breathtaking view of the Sierra to the east and an expansive view of the valley (sometimes to the Coast Ranges) to the west.

A stunning waterfall and series of pools carved out of solid granite bedrock are on the property just behind the cabin on Bear Creek for cooling off or relaxing by. The cabin sits above the waterfalls and access is by a short but steep switchback trail down to creek level. (General terrain and trail may be difficult for some children and adults not in good physical shape. Ask owner)

It's a perfect 'out there' couple's or writer's retreat for those who want to lose the touristy scene and find some serenity.

The cabin is surrounded by pines, oaks and manzanitas and serenaded by the sound of the waterfall. The site was a long-time camp for local Native Americans. Artifacts have been discovered here and mortar stones for grinding acorns surround the cabin.

The house is located on Bear Creek Road within the Giant Sequoia National Monument, and 10 miles from the quaint village of Springville . Drive 8 miles farther up the mountain and drive, hike, ski or horseback to ancient Giant Sequoia groves and idyllic mountain lakes in Balch Park .

Peaceful Treehouse Cabin w/ Private Waterfalls

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks at the Waterfall Cabin. It was all it was described to be and more! The proximity of the Great Sequoias makes the area special, to say the least. The owners of the property are gracious and hospitable, for example offering homegrown veggies from their garden. The furnishing of the cabin is clean, comfortable and tasteful, truly lovingly cared for. Not only would I recommend this property to anyone, but we hope to visit again in the near future.

Honeymoon Dream

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful hidden gem! We spent hald our honeymoon here and couldnt have asked for a more serene place. Be prepared for a long drive to Sequoia Park , but Blach park is right up the road and worth the day trip too. The falls behind the cabin are amazing and you feel like you are in your own little world not burdened by outside worries. The wildlife at night is cool too, we saw racoons and a bobcat! Not to mention the roaming cows that love to stare. If you are looking for a mountain getaway, but close enough to town, this is the spot for you! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

An enchanting getaway

  • 5 of 5
Waterfall Cabin is a magical and idyllic place. Sitting on the deck listening to the waterfall and enjoying the marvelous views, we completely relaxed. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and the nearby hiking was amazing, and amazingly uncrowded. We appreciated the owners having taken the time to describe the cabin and the surrounding Sequoia National Forest accurately and in detail. We also appreciated their efforts to ensure guests enjoy their stay, with loads of information and alternatives depending on weather and guests' interests. We'll be back!

Cozy Cabin for Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at your adorable cabin. It was the perfect size and location for a little getaway for my husband and I. We loved sitting out on the deck and hearing the waterfall down below. The mossy rocks and oak trees all around are so peaceful and beautiful. We also loved sitting out on the rocks by the waterfall and just watching the water flow by. We drove up to Nelson Camp and hiked out in the snow to some Sequoias. We really wished we could have stayed a few days more. We definitely want to go back again. Thank you very much for sharing this little bit of heaven with us.

Comfortable Get-away

  • 4 of 5
For a mid-September visit, the cabin proved a nice retreat from urban hussle and chatter. The kitchen was well-equipped, the place clean, the bed mighty comfortable, and the views out the windows pleasant in all directions. We had just come from a lovely rural place in Ojai so perhaps we were a bit jaded with the mountain views here. Shelly was responsive, pleasant, and full of information. We have two reservations: 1) the waterfall in September was not audible even and the path down to it is treacherous for most people and environmentally unsound and should not be a featured attraction. We speak as experienced hikers. 2) If you want to hike or be in Sequoia National Park, the drive is over 2 hours one way down windy roads, and it is far better to stay in the park itself.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, after two winters with no snow pack in the High Sierra (a fraction of normal precipitation) & being near the end of the dry season of the year, Bear Creek is indeed the lowest we have seen it this mid September. However, it is still flowing (unlike many creeks and rivers in the Sierra below 5000’ which dry up annually in the summer). The water is clear and cold and the series of granite pools below the falls are full. While the waterfall is not spectacular at the moment, it is audible from the top of the trail behind the cabin & this private spot, carved out of a granite slope is a special & soothing place to relax.
Most of the year (and most years) the water level has not been an issue & the creek normally runs quite strong through the summer.

As for the trail leading to the creek level, it is a narrow, steep switchback trail winding down through the trees & boulders. We do describe it as such & state in our ads & on our website that it may not be suitable for children, handicapped or out of shape adults. We have rarely had a complaint about it, but it does require care & is strenuous going back up.

We state plainly in our initial email to inquirers that we are located within Giant Sequoia National Monument (not the National Park) at 3800’ & 8 miles from the closest groves. Our website also has extensive information about our local area.

There is indeed some general confusion about the difference in public land jurisdictions within the Sequoia region. There is the National Park, National Monument and National Forest. The differences have to do with approved uses, governing organizations and budgets. As far as scenery goes, all have old growth Giant Sequoia groves, vistas, rivers, lakes, and extensive hiking trails.

We feel that the advantages of enjoying destinations outside the ‘Park’ are:
less people
more access (big trees are not behind fences as in the Park)
dogs allowed on trails
horseback riding is available
no entry fee

While one can stay in a lodge within the Park, if you are looking for a more intimate & unique experience, private properties will only be available outside the boundary. This means that you would lodge below 1500’ elevation & have quite a drive up to the Sequoia elevation at 6000’. The Waterfall Cabin is within the Monument at 3800’ & is only an 8 mile drive to the closest Giant Sequoia groves where most have enjoyed this beautiful and off the beaten path area.

Honeymoon Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Waterfall Cabin in Springville, CA. We wanted to do something a little bit off the beaten path (literally) for our honeymoon and this was a perfect fit! Plus, the cabin was very cozy and clean with lots of great information provided about the nearby parks and attractions. We definitely did quite a bit of windshield time to see everything we wanted but the cabin was a pretty central location to all different attractions while being pretty up in the mountains where you're going to get wonderful peace and quiet and some hiking right in the backyard. If you drive a bit up the mountain, you'll cross into Balch Park which was our favorite place to hike and experience. It was equally as cool as the Sequoia National Monument while being a lot less busy and way more off the beaten path.

Come slow down with us and enjoy a secret part of the Sierra largely undiscovered by tourists.
