Sequoia Village Inn

The Sequoia Village Inn is in the beautiful town of Three Rivers at the border of and entrance to Sequoia National Park. The Inn consists of ten private chalet and cottage accommodations tucked into 1.3 acres of native and massive oak trees, grasses and native wildflowers. The Sequoia Village Inn is directly across from where the East Fork joins the Kaweah River at the historic Pumpkin Hollow Bridge and is located on a site where Potwisha Indians made camp and made bed rock mortar holes for grinding and preparing acorns and other food.

Lodging Style and Amenities

Most of the cottages and chalets at the Sequoia Village Inn started as Sequoia National Park ranger residences or cabins.  The accommodations have been renovated and improved, and new chalets added, but the craftsman style has remained with custom woodwork and cabinetry throughout the cottages and chalets, hand laid rock walls and walkways, big wood beam construction, and custom mosaic inlaid rock and tile work by the artist wife of the owner of the Inn.  The accommodations are comfortable, and nearly all feature fully stocked kitchens and some with wood fireplaces.  The rooms range from studios to tri-level, three bedroom two bathroom chalets.  All of the accommodations feature photography of the back-country of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and all have patios and/or decks with barbecues.

Seasons Open

365 days

Recreational Opportunities

Step across the property line into Sequoia National Park, where you can walk, hike, bike, fish or sight-see until you are ready to return to the Inn to relax and unwind.  You have river access as well as direct access to Sequoia National Park from our property. Of course, you can also drive to any of the major attractions in Sequoia including Moro Rock, General Sherman and Crystal Cave.

For ten years the Sequoia Village Inn has partnered with Sequoia National Park, a local Kiwanis chapter, and a multitude of middle schools and teachers in a program called Sequoia For Youth.  Several times per year the inn provides its fully furnished and outfitted chalets and cottages free of charge to underprivileged youth from the San Joaquin Valley and South Central Los Angeles that could not otherwise afford to visit or learn about Sequoia National Park.  The children spend 2 to 4 days and nights with Sequoia National Park rangers learning about ecosystems, watersheds, conservation, local plants and animals, and much more.  Since the inception of the program, nearly 1,000 children have stayed at the inn and have been able to experience and learn about Sequoia National Park through Sequoia For Youth.

Rate Range

Driving Directions

Take Highway 198 east towards Sequoia National Park.  We are 1/4 mile from the entrance to the Sequoia National Park and the only lodging in Three Rivers that actually borders the Park.

Eco-Friendly Notes

We provide recycle bins for each cottage and chalet, use CFL and LED lighting, keep the lights directed down so as not to light up the night sky, provide body wash and shampoo in dispensers rather than in wasteful packaging, use native plants which attract and provide food for native birds, butterflies and fauna and use eco friendly cleaners.

Locally or Family Owned Business Notes

The Sequoia Village Inn is owned by Dennis and Stacie Villavicencio who reside across the street  from the Inn with their two children.  Dennis has hiked extensively throughout the Sierra Nevada including across the entire range in as little as two days.  Dennis has also bicycled on every paved and dirt road in the Park and adjacent federal holdings as well.  Dennis is also a local volunteer firefighter and EMT and assists Sequoia National Park rangers on Search and Rescues and other incidents when needed.  Dennis loves to share his front country and back country knowledge of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, the best places to take photographs (and when) and frequently hikes, runs, rides and even kayaks with guests.

Pet Friendly Notes

The Sequoia Village Inn is pet friendly.


The cabins are great. The innkeepers are very accommodating and great people. Location just outside Sequoia is perfect. My family just loved the views and location.

I love these cabins! They each have their own character, and would be a great place to stay, especially for an extended visit because of the kitchens.
