The title of this review was my wife's comment on about the second day of our stay at this great little place.
We stayed for 3 nights in mid Sept 2013. It doesn't look much from the outside to be honest - but as they say appearances can be deceptive. Quirky is a description others have used - and I'd agree with that.
The attention to detail in the rooms is outstanding - it really is as close to being @ home away from home as we've ever experienced on our travels.
The riverside setting is idyllic -beaches/a fire or two at night/a barbeque if you want one/ loads of places to just sit and contemplate/drink a glass or two of wine and watch the sun set. It is a perfect base for visiting nearby Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs. There are enough places to eat well within easy range and a good market close by. Visalia is only a 25 min drive away if you need more in the way of shopping.
Could not fault this one at all - if you are in the area - I'd say try and stay here.
