vacation rental description

The Kaweah Cottage and Shangrila Nature Preserve are most appreciated by visitors who want an exceptionally clean and comfortable home with very close access to the River and who enjoy truly getting away from it all. Surrounded by thousands of acres of oak woodlands, horse pastures and ancient river pools, this historic homestead offers a place of sanctuary, healing and celebration for the more adventurous lovers of Nature.

It is best suited for independent travelers who take pleasure in preparing their own meals in a gourmet kitchen; who prefer being away from the nearby town with it’s busy highways and tourist crowds; who love vacationing in a wilderness area while nestled in a luxurious, healthy, green-built home that they have all to themselves.

Whether you are a writer or an artist wanting to nurture your creativity, a couple seeking precious time together, or a family with children looking to explore Nature and discover nearby Sequoia National Park -- Kaweah Cottage is the perfect place.

We’re located at the end of an unpaved country road on the upper South Fork of the Kaweah River -- far away from cities, suburbia, and the usual routines -- fifteen minutes from the village of Three Rivers and thirty minutes from the main entrance to Sequoia National Park. This is a memorable destination where one can really get away, slow down, and sink into the peace and beauty.

Although the Cottage is equipped with the essential technologies that many of us need to stay connected -- satellite wi-fi, cordless phone, dvd player, an audiophile sound system -- we encourage our guests to spend most of their time unplugged, listening to the sounds from the adjacent Creek, the symphony of wildlife, and the down canyon breezes wafting through the oaks. Being here will change the way you feel.

Here are a few of the favorite features and activities:
Hiking and exploring around the 62 acre Shangrila Nature Preserve; summertime swimming and frolicking along the spectacular and secluded river and creek; year-round bird-watching; full day excursions up to the Sequoias; fine bedding, sheets, and towels; the fully equipped gourmet kitchen; amazingly comfortable bathtub and spacious shower; breathtaking night skies; watching horses graze from the bedroom view deck; exceptional privacy -- turn the music up as loud as you want... whenever you want; a clean, comfortable, natural place that becomes your home away from home.
