Homely, quaint, quirky, peaceful, relaxing and eclectic nik-naks all make Five Spot an absolute delight. If you fancy sitting outside having breakfast while humming birds drink nectar from feeders, or if watching the Milky Way in the dark skies appeals, then book to stay here. There is everything you need for self catering, except a TV, but who needs a TV when there's so much to do outside?
The cabin is about 20 mins from Sequoia National Park, where we spent four wonderful days exploring and walking. We saw beautiful waterfalls, rivers, and meadows. The giant cedar trees were breathtaking!
If you enjoy wildlife we saw: frogs, ground squirrels, chipmunks, deer, many bird breeds, a snake, a tarantula, a skunk...oh and a bear!!
I loved Five Spot and Mahalia made sure we had settled in okay and was genuinely concerned that we had everything we needed for an unforgettable stay.
Well equipped kitchen, clear directions and instructions, and fast responses from the owner for any concerns. Very pretty garden; clearly a lot of loving care has been lavished on the house. A smooth and pleasant experience!
A really beautiful, quirky cabin in a gorgeous location. It has a fantastic fire and a working sauna - ideal for a winter get away.

Close enough to Kings Canyon and Sequoia to enjoy the parks during the day. Far enough to escape the crouds and enjoy the peace and quiet. The outdoor space was nicer then any cabin I have ever stayed at. Lots of beautiful flowers and wonderful smells. The kitchen was well stocked and the cabin had more necessities then most. There was no TV, that freaked my kids out but enhanced the family time. The bed was a very firm thin mattress with no box springs. That may suit some but led to restless nights for me.
The cabin exceeded our expectations in the level of care and attention given to all the little details that make a home. It was very well appointed in terms of bedding, towels and kitchen equipment and we appreciated the flowers and fresh fruit that greeted us, as well as the provision of pantry staples. It has a lovely outdoor patio with feeders for the hummingbirds and plenty of seating plus lanterns and candles. Lots of games and interesting books and magazines and it was all very clean. We only wished we could have stayed much much longer. Our host took great care in sending complete directions and answering my questions before we booked. A wonderful vacation spot.
