Thank you for your review! We've always encouraged our staff to research the area for guests (even though we're locals there's still some things we don't even know about)! I'm glad to know our knowledge of the area and/or property met your expectations! If there...More

The room was very cozy and comfortable, and service was great. The receptionist also helped us with the local sight-seeing and finding routes to the 100-Giants. I would recommend to friends and family!

Our stay at the Kern Lodge exceeded our expectations for a clean and comfy place to stay. The staff accommodated us and our two, older dogs, very well. We love this place and will be back to room 203 as soon as we are able.

The whole staff is very friendly/accomodating. As for rooms, I'd recommend 111 (sequoia tree), 113 (Manzanita) or if you want some more space there is rooms 110 (kern river) or the 301(the duplex). Those are all options with... More
