Why Melinda Aguilar chose Badger
Buying this property was love at first site. We enjoy every minute outdoor dining on the patio in the summer and the patio fireplace in the winter. We love the location, everything of beauty is virtually with our reach.
What makes this House unique
Location, Location, Location...It's a short drive to Kings Canyon one of the worlds most beautiful places. We can also visit nearby lakes and spend the day on the water.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
The home was nice and clean, with 5 children there was plenty room for them to play and run around. The house was as close as you can get to being in your own home. The only thing we were visiting the Sequoia Forest which was a little further than we expected. But we did it a very exciting experience for all of us 14 total.
Nice home, not quite as advertised
Excellent place to stay! My dogs LOVED being able to run, the property is huge! Plenty of room for all of us, worked great. However, kitchen could use some upgrades. Need bigger bowls (mixing and serving) and the knives were terrible. Also, if coming to go to SNP or KCNP, it is a 45 minute drive, at best, to either entrance. It took us two hours to get where we were going all three days, NOT home owners fault, just stating for info purposes.
Again, LOVEd the property, though House is a bit “rustic”. You do need to bring all of your own entertainment and stop at a store. I recommend the Village Market about 30 minutes away.
Pretty Area, Rustic
Property is set in a pretty area and very private. They had window air conditioner for each bedroom so it was comfortable. Not enough furniture in the living room for the number of people this sleeps to make it a good gathering area. We brought our camp chairs in and made it work, but another couch or two would have been better.
Kitchen was not well stocked. Was told we could contact property manager if we needed anything, but if we hadn't brought our WIFI hotspot this would have been impossible. No land line. They responded well and brought the things we needed the next morning, but it was still inconvenient trying to feed a large group with no can opener or soap. Large pots had no lids, etc. No pitcher to make juice. One trash bag in the bottom of the trash can to meet our needs for four days and 13 people was not enough. They just need to go over the kitchen and make sure it is complete with the necessities.
The property is pretty and I could see they are fixing it up. Overall, it was a fun place for our large family.
Excellent Accommodations and Experience
Our only regret was we could not stay longer. Was especially nice that we had the entire property all to ourselves.Exceptional !
Nice family reunion
Quiet, no neighbors
Nice view of the Sierra Lake ( a pleasant surprise for us)
A lot of frogs in the lake but a lot of mosquitos too. Insect repellents are a must.
Loved the wildlife
We enjoyed sitting on the porch each night watching the birds and squirrels in the mulberry tree and listening to the bullfrogs. There were also wild turkeys roaming the edge of the lake. The living area was not when we arrived but cooled off quickly with the doors open and fans running. We found it was faster to use the Kings Canyon entrance and drive through to Sequoia rather than use the Sequoia entrance.
White Water Rafting available nearby. You can pack a picnic and take in the wilderness and surrounding wildlife. Walking path available.
