I love to camp, but I'm tired of the schlepping and the setting up and the taking down. We stayed in the Hideaway at Rio and it was all the joys of camping with no work. We could sit around the campfire, see stars at night, swim in the river (the best!) and be among the trees. Then we could go to sleep or cook a meal in the air conditioned caravan. The best of both worlds. Mars is wonderful. The only thing to be concerned with is the weather. It is hot this time of year.

Room Tip: If you want to be off by yourself and feel like you have your own little campground, choose the Hideaway. The large second floor suite is awesome too and would be great for a family or a bunch of friends.

It's not without its quirks but I can't imagine a lovelier setting for a B&B/hotel.
It's smack on the river and the water is great for swimming especially given the hot weather.We had the trailer and, whilst a little cramped,provided a superb secluded spot to while away our evenings.
Yes some things don't quite work as they should but nothing critical and you'll happily put up with these and just enjoy the location and some of the nice touches that constantly enhance the stay.
Heartily recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in the self-catering Hideaway RV, detached from the house with lots of outside space fronting the river. The setting is gorgeous and we spent very little time inside, with our own firepit to sit around each evening. The ground and landscaping requires steady footwork, and there are steep steps down from the road.

The RV is oldish but has everything we needed, and the shower and strange flush toilet worked perfectly. It is pretty small inside but with a comfortable bed - we are used to a small motorhome. There is a hob and microwave but no oven; we used the large gas BBQ outside on 2 nights to cook our meal - the other night we had a great takeaway pizza from the Pizza Factory down the road, which did for lunch the next day as well. Eating out of doors is a great pleasure.

We actually cut short one of our two days in Sequoia to spend the afternoon in the grounds as it was so beautiful. As well as challenging rocky rapids for confident swimmers, there is a lovely large deep still pool below with sandy access for swimming - though this is used by lots of locals as well and may not be very safe for small children and you should watch your belongings. The water was not cold at the end of June. There are lots of outdoor chairs and shady spots, and the owners sell refreshments during the day.

The noise of the river lulled us to sleep but is significantly loud. If aircon was needed, that is extremely noisy, but it is quite cool here on June evenings. Management was very friendly but fires have to be out at 10pm; people do keep early nights and we hardly saw anyone about so there was no opportunity to chat.

The road up to Sequoia NP is extremely slow, steep and winding and it does take an hour minimum to get to the big trees, but they are magnificent and their biology fascinating. The 400-step stiff climb up Moro Rock, challenging at that altitude, gives a stunning panorama. Three Rivers is a very quiet little town but is the nearest place outside the park to stay. We would love to go again.

Room Tip: The self-catering Hideaway is a different experience completely from the rest ot the B&B.

We spent just one night here as part of our 19 day road trip and we were very pleased with the room and overall experience.
We stayed in River Studio and it really was a lovely room with the most comfortable bed! We slept so well.
We popped down to the nearby Pizza restaurant and bought takeout pizzas which we ate on our balcony along with sipping one of our Sonoma wines. The grounds were lovely with little seating areas dotted everywhere and lovely lighting. The owner had a fire-pit going and was entertaining a few of the other guests. We had been asked down too but we took advantage of just watching the stars from our own balcony which we hoped didn't seem anti social, as we really aren't!
This is a lovely place and we would highly recommend it.

We stayed for one night in Rio Sierra. I wish we could have stayed longer, it was great! We booked via another website and there were was directly nice emailcontact with the owner. We were on honeymoon, and therefore they upgraded our room to the mastersuite while we booked the gardensuite. It was amazing! Also there was a basket with fruit and congrats for us. The room was huge and very cosy. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
In the evening we sat on the campfire. It was an overall great experience and i would recommend everyone who will go to Sequioa to stay here.
If we will be there another time, I will certainly book a room here again.
