This was our family's fourth annual spring break vacation at the Sequoia Lodge. We've always enjoyed ourselves in the past and were surprised at how many positive changes have taken place since our last visit. First off, the staff was so friendly throughout my lengthy reservation process--they not only shuffled things around to keep the family in rooms right next to each other, but we were also able to negotiate a slightly discounted group rate.
In my opinion, the property and rooms have never looked better. It's obvious that a lot of work has gone into landscaping and renovations over the last year. The rooms had new flooring, new TVs, and many small delights. Someone had set-up flowers and a welcome card for my parents, whom I had mentioned were celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary when I made our reservations.
Our family stayed in the four rooms closest to the river. We had a fantastic view of water and wildflowers. There is also a patio/deck area with a BBQ that we grilled that on and had a big family dinner around the outdoor table.
We love that you can fish on the back of the property. My daughter's even caught and we were able to clean our fish in their fish shed and grill them that evening.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and will be back next year!

We stay at the Sequoia Lodge a few times per year for the past 8 years, it is a wonderful place. This last trip is the first time our room was not clean. The plates were put back in the cupboard dirty (one had what appeared to be a plateful of dried meat juice on it) there were old cheese puffs, other crumbs a lot of dust and a used paper towel under the bed ( none of this ours) and the provided lotion tube had been used ( again not by us). The new managers are very nice but I'm hoping this is not a sign of things to come.

The Sequoia Lodge is in a quiet and scenic part of the KRV and has been our favorite “local” getaway for many years because of it. Be aware that there has been a change in ownership/management however. Whereas the previous owners must have enforced a reasonable “quiet time” since we never had this problem before, the new owners are apparently allowing noisy parties to go on until the wee hours of the AM.
Families and peace-seekers beware and inquire about who’s staying at the place. I hope the Sequoia Lodge doesn’t surrender this lovely stretch of the river to loudmouths and drunks.

We just got back from spending one night at this beautiful, clean, first rate lodge. The managers, Christi & Russell, were beyond nice, helpful and inviting. Perfect location. Loved everything about the room, the beautiful grounds and surrounding area. We initially went up to scope out RV parks, but have decided to stay here instead in the future. We booked two more days in March to take our 3 granddaughters there. We've put this as one of our 'top places' to stay list.

Only stayed one night here but wished that our stay was longer. A stones throw away from the Kern River. The angler theme of our room was nicely done. There are a few things that could be improved such as the tube television and some of the molding on the shower doors were showing age. Having a small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, sink, coffee maker, and popcorn, w/ dishes and utensils was convenient. The linens were clean and in good condition. Heater worked well and did not have any odors. I'm looking forward to staying here in the future.

Thank you for staying with us recently. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the lodge! As new managers, we have also noticed the bathroom moulding and will be fixing it up soon.

We are currently working on our armoires so they can accommodate flat-screens, which we will be putting in each room (along with DVRs) by the end of summer. Rooms 1 & 2 currently have flat-screens.

Thank you so much for your review--we hope to see you again!

We have spent 25 days in our USA vacations, and it's the best place where we go during our trip.
Rooms are clean,well equiped, people very friendly and the place above the Kern river useful for refreshing after a long journey. We would have liked to stay a longer time.
