Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, California
Quiet, cozy, inspiring, art-filled cabin: fivespot is a relaxing place for a week or weekend. Just 15 minutes from the entrance to Sequoia Kings Canyon National Parks, it's perfect for couples or small families. After a satisfying journey to see the spectacular sequoia trees, or experiencing rugged Kings Canyon, come back to fivespot and have a cookout, relax on the covered patio, and enjoy the sauna and outdoor shower.

Feeling creative? Add something to the chalkboard wall, or stroll to the hilltop behind the cabin and sketch the surrounding foothills. Several painters and writers have already used fivespot as a personal artistic retreat - you can too!

Fivespot is situated in the Giant Sequoia National Monument, and the towering trees in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are only 15 minutes from the cabin. Awesome Kings Canyo...

My family of 4 just stayed here for 3 nights at this cabin and we loved it. The owners of this cabin are very nice, accommodating people. The cabin itself is quaint and comfortable, very clean and sleeps 4-5 people easily. You can cook/grill each night. We brought our own food for breakfast and lunches. The cabin is off of...

We absolutely loved our stay at the cabin. The fireplace and sauna were enough to keep us cozy and warm in the winter and the lodge next door was a nice option for "getting out" at night for anyone feeling a little restless. There were plenty of games, books and other activities to keep you busy on a cold evening...

About the neighbourhood
Few vacation cabins are as close to Kings Canyon National Park as Fivespot Cabin. A 15-minute drive to its entrance will bring you to the feet of giant sequoias, and an hour more will take you to the bottom of the breathtaking canyon itself. From there discover prime hiking trails, waterfalls, caves and meadows - all without the crowds of Yosemite.

Fivespot is located in the heart of the tiny settlement known as Pinehurst. Once a thriving logging community, it is now a sleepy rural retreat. Fortunately for visitors and locals, historic Pinehurst Lodge is open year-round. A family-friendly restaurant and bar, 'the Lodge' (as the locals call it) is a short walk from fivespot and was once a sawmill. Known for its Saturday night Prime Rib special, it's also got a pool table, a j...
