About Elsah Cort
Elsah "I came here as a child in the 50's to visit my aunt and uncle and cousins. We kids would sit in the back of my uncle's pickup truck and drive up to the mountains for special summer days at their cabin. Three Rivers has always drawn me back over the years. I finally moved here in 1977, and have lived in my present home for over 30 years. The guest cottage is a special service I offer, as I know how important it is for people to connect with nature and slow down from their busy lives (especially to walk among the Big Trees). Over the years I have added special things in the cottage to give comfort, inspiration, and respite for my guests. Many special moments have happened here. I know there are more to come." ________________________________________________________________ Your host is a collage, multi-media artist and guests can visit her art studio upon request.

Wonderful private setting looking onto the mountains
Lovely cozy cottage with good lay-out for a couple. Very quiet, private and clean. Enjoyed the cozy deck each morning for coffee when the temperatures were still cool. The scents from the herb garden around the cottage were really heavenly. Close proximity to Sequioa National Park and Mineral King. It is a 2+hour drive to Kings Canyon (worth the trip, but long drive).Had a family of quail who visited every morning, as well as Acorn Woodpeckers. Air conditioner cooled the small cottage off very well within 20-30 minutes of being turned on. Necessary as the daytime temperature was 97-102 when we were there.Well stocked with dishes, cookware and linens. Would have loved to stay much longer!
The Cozy Cort Cottage
The Cort Cottage was a perfect place for our exploration of the area. We only wish we had more time to stay longer. There is so much to see in this area and we barely scratched the surface. It's wonderful to stay in such a quiet picturesque place and have the luxury of preparing our own meals. The owner gave us plenty of privacy, but after seeing her artwork, we just had to meet her.
It was a cute little cabin in the mountains.
Percent for us.
Cute as can be.
Beautiful Magical Unique Space Amazing View
The cottage was amazing from the moment you arrive and walk down the path. Every inch of the property inside and out is thought out and decorated with such love and care. The book selections are amazing. The view is amazing. It feels so cozy and inspiring inside the cottage with a great kitchen as well. I would come back here in a heartbeat! I have stayed at many Airbnb’s and vacation rentals and this one stands out due to how much attention the host puts on making the space it’s own experience. We also left with one of her artist collection calanders as well. Her art is very spiritual and is hanging on the walls. This place is a pure unique gem. Do it !!
We arrived after dark and Elsah left us plenty of directions to find our way. It's not easy to find after dark! But when you find it, it's pretty special. It's a small cottage. It worked well for two adults and two young children. It would be ideal for a couple too.
It's a good place as a base from which to explore Sequoia National Park. The cottage has a great small library. The owner is an artist and has a very interesting collection of books on the shelves...which is always fun to explore someone's book collection. The half circle window is a big feature of the room and connects the cottage to the outdoors. The view of the mountains is great.
Loved the place, loved Three Rivers, loved Sequoia!
