Pinehurst, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, California
Fivespot is just 15 minutes to Kings Canyon - Sequoia National Park in California's spectacular Sierra Nevada. Giant sequoia trees, jaw-dropping Kings Canyon, High Sierra hikes: all yours without the crowds you'd find in Yosemite.

The cabin: cute, homey, comfortable, wi-fi, classic book collection, fireplace, sauna, artful tilework, outdoor shower, covered patio, hummingbird feeders, fresh flowers, a quirky, international knick-knack collection, full kitchen, BBQ, laundry. Built in the 1940s, it was completely renovated in 2008.

Although fivespot is most definitely a mountain retreat - it's one hour to the nearest grocery store, one-half hour to the nearest gas station - you won't be alone.

I could not recommend or endorse it any more. It is a...

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...

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!
