GREAT Lodge at a Great Place and First-Class host
We had a wonderful stay at an amazing place right at the river. Can't be better. We had breakfast every morning right at the river. And a vine on our terrace every evening, also with river view. Mars, the owner took great of us. She responded always and right away. First-Class host!!! The place is just 15min from the Parc entrance. What else do you need 👍👍👍

This small hotel is ALL about location! To anyone who thinks it is too expensive you are paying for the absolutely beautiful grounds, privacy and access to the river for swimming, fishing or just relaxing. We rented room 2 that was facing the river. It was very cozy with a comfortable queen mattress, a day bed, a little refrigerator and a microwave. It was all that we needed since we spent most of our time outside. There were several restaurants about a 5 minute drive away. The hotel is on the main hwy to the sequoias but felt like we had driven into the backroads. We will visit again just to be here and enjoy sitting by the river all day. I would not stay here with small children but older kids will enjoy exploring the grounds. We met only the housekeeper (I think) and she was very polite. It was lovely listening to the river and watching the stars at night. We were the only guests there which made it the best vacation ever!

I have stayed at the Rio Sierra River house on more than one occasions & this property everytime has been absolutely amazing. The rio Sierra river house hosts the best spot on the river to swim or just enjoy a tranquil morning sipping your coffee or tea. I highly recommend this spot to everyone for any reason, you will not be disappointed. Conveniently located in walking distance to a number of stores,restaurants, and is only a 4 minute ride to the Sequoias national park entrance. Book as may nights as your heart desires you will leave wishing you could stay longer.

The interior design was eclectic and bohemian. It was cute and practical. They had some fun interior design concepts. All in all a nice place to stay to be close to Sequoia and King's Canyon. The host was very helpful and answered our questions very promptly.

Super relaxing and eclectic. Mars the owner was very available and helpful. Very peaceful and tranquil. Just the way that the river bends & pauses only a few steps from our doorstep was AWESOME! We are considering renting the entire property for our whole family next year!
