I've stayed at Falling Waters Resorts a half dozen times in the last three years. The rooms are clean, the location is great, and the property is located next to the Kern River. Many of the rooms have bbqs, good kitchenettes, and outdoor seating. Kernville proper is just five minutes away, and outdoor access (rafting, hiking, mountain biking) is all...

I have spent many family and solo vacations here. I can not find one negative thing to say about this place. The staff, "especially Billie" treat you like family. Looking forward to a peaceful stay during the Christmas season. Always stay in a riverview cottage. Anyone who does not like this place is either competition or crazy.

Let me start with maybe the most important thing: the people at this resort are the nicest folks. In fact, the folks in Kernville are just plain friendly. And the resort is out of the town, nestled between a campground and the water district. Very quiet. Squirrels and birds abound. Great place to bring a dog. We stayed in rooms...

I don't even think it deserves one star rating. It is terrible at falling waters. not only is the decoration bad, but there is nothing but bugs in the room, the shower keeps clogging up. I decided to sleep in my car it was terrible.

We stay in Kernville frequently and our most favorite place to stay is Chuck Richard's Falling Waters River Resort. Chuck and his staff are always helpful and have lots of great tips and local knowledge. Rooms are all different and decorated in a wonderfully eclectic style. The resort is right on a very beautiful section of the Kern River. The...

Before we even arrived in America, Chuck was emailing us back and forth with suggestions on where to stay and what to visit on our 3 week road trip around California. So I left a little bit disappointed in the standard accomodation at Falling Waters. We were greeted by bunk beds with plastic mattresses, the kitchen had gaps where the...

My husband and I have been staying at Falling Waters Inn for the past nine years. We always reserve the same room during Whiskey Flat Days. Each room has a different theme. The people who run the place are great, we have never had a problem. The room we have is clean and inviting. I would recommend this place to...

The room and set-up was better than we were expecting. The room was shaded by mulberry trees, the courtyard in front had a BBQ and it was pleasant to sit outside our room and listen to the river. We went up on a Friday and the place was very quiet. The staff greeted us in a friendly and helpful manner,...

“I was glad I saved money by choosing a courtyard room rather than a river view room. Room #15 was on the end of a row of cottages and had good shade. We didn't even need to use the air conditioner at night ... we just opened up all the screened windows and had a nice breeze.”
