We booked two nights at Rio Sierra and were sorry not to be there longer. The setting is beyond idyllic nestling riverside along a swift moving rapids winding their way over and around smooth boulders. It is quiet and lovely and Mars is a wonderful and thoughtful host. If you are on your way to a hiking trip in the...

This place has extremely cosy ambiance, it is almost like you have your own cottage house by the river. We found the staff of the hotel very helpful too. Some extras offered by the hotel justify the high price - fireplace by your apartment is always awaiting you in the evening, smores are offered by welcoming hosts, a lot of...

Let's start with what we LOVED about this place. We stayed in the Panorama Room for one night 10/03/14 for my husband's birthday. 1. Great LOCATION...it's on the river! Beautiful and relaxing. It's like your own oasis, not crowded, play at your own risk! (You sign a safety waiver). 2. Close to Sequoia National Park (which is why we stayed...

The setting is visually stunning, glacial rocks next to a tumbling river, comfy chairs for relaxing and a nightly fire for social warmth. The river lulls you to sleep and gently wakes you in the morning. Everything was provided for one's comfort. I wish breakfast was provided as part of the package. It is pricey, but worth it. Wifi included...

On a three week road trip this was by far our favourite accommodation. The location is stunning. We had the panorama room and woke to gorgeous views of the river and mountain every day. It was a short drive to Sequioa National Park which we loved, then after a day sightseeing we would return for a swim in the river,...

End 2013 we searched the internet for accommodation for our CA trip and visit to Sequoia & Kings NP. We wanted to be in - or at least close - to the park (driving into the park already takes some time). We found the Rio Sierra Riverhouse and we were basically sold based on other reviews and the pictures. The...

I love to camp, but I'm tired of the schlepping and the setting up and the taking down. We stayed in the Hideaway at Rio and it was all the joys of camping with no work. We could sit around the campfire, see stars at night, swim in the river (the best!) and be among the trees. Then we could...

It's not without its quirks but I can't imagine a lovelier setting for a B&B/hotel. It's smack on the river and the water is great for swimming especially given the hot weather.We had the trailer and, whilst a little cramped,provided a superb secluded spot to while away our evenings. Yes some things don't quite work as they should but nothing...

We stayed 3 nights in the self-catering Hideaway RV, detached from the house with lots of outside space fronting the river. The setting is gorgeous and we spent very little time inside, with our own firepit to sit around each evening. The ground and landscaping requires steady footwork, and there are steep steps down from the road. The RV is...
