Nestled at the foot of Sequoia National Park and the head of Lake Kaweah, is probably the best kept secret in California - the magical foothill village of Three Rivers, resident population: 2,600. This quaint village is spread out along three forks of the Kaweah River, which itself originates from high in the neighboring Sierra Nevada Mountains in Sequoia National Park.
Only a few hours drive from Los Angeles or San Francisco, your cell phones and pagers won't work here. The air is crisp and clean with the sound of the ever-present Kaweah River gurgling behind it. Here, you'll experience peace and quiet, where stunning sunsets and star-filled nights replace street lights.
At Three Rivers Bed and Breakfast, you are only 8 miles from the main entrance to Sequoia National Park, home of the General Sherman Tree and other examples of the largest living things on earth. This is "Kaweah Country" as gorgeous as it is wild.
We designed our river house so that each guest bedroom would overlook the Middle Fork of the River, then gave the project to a Three Rivers contractor who grew up on the South Fork. With a love of oak trees and a deep understanding of rivers, river rock, and sand, he built a beautiful home bed and breakfast for us on a plateau overlooking the River and managed to save all of the huge granite rocks and most of the oak trees which were on our property when we purchased it.
Before obtaining his contractor's license, our builder was a cabinet maker. Thus the beautiful oak cabinets you see throughout the river house were designed and built by him.
Our breakfast menu focuses on our own homegrown fruit in addition to local fruit grown no farther than 50 miles away in California's Central Valley. All of this fruit is either grown organically or in a sustainable fashion. At Three Rivers Bed and Breakfast, we do our best to make everything from scratch. Guest favorites include our homemade cobblers made with local fruit, such as cherry cobblers, spiced apple cobblers, strawberry cobblers, and the Three Rivers wild blackberry cobbler. Many guests also enjoy our quiche, made with organic eggs from locally raised cage-free chickens. Each breakfast comes with a plate of seasonal fresh fruit. Fresh-squeezed orange juice made from locally grown, sustainable or organic oranges is always available.
