I wish we had planned to stay longer! Mars is a great host; she took care of everything. The River Studio has a wall of windows overlooking the river (as well as a truly great hot shower and upgraded bathroom; real coffee cups and wine glasses, great books to read, etc.) and the grounds are really beautiful. The staff were... More

What a beautiful Guest House in an unbelievable setting. We stayed for two nights and it was just a haven of calm. To sit out by the river, or on the balcony and soak up the scenery was idyllic. Thank you Mars for your hospitality - we will tell all our friends about your little bit of paradise. If you... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was at the Rio Sierra Riverhouse. We had the Hideaway for a couple of nights and it was great. The staff was fantastic for many of reasons people have already listed. Our place and grounds were clean, the firepit was freshened up every day, etc. We loved the atmosphere with just... More

We were made very welcome by Margaret, who shared the story about how she turned this place into the jewel it is. The place is so well kept and clean, and it was the best experience we had on our 3 week trip visiting California from Norway. It is a perfect spot for kids as well as adults. We had... More

My wife and I and our two children stayed at the Rio Sierra in early July having spent several days in the national park and it was a great way to finish up our visit!

The Rio Sierra Riverhouse is a special place, right on the river and close to Sequoia. We were immediately impressed by the property upon entering the bright blue gate. Great attention to detail is given....from the lanterns lighting the path to the river to the many fire pits and sitting areas carefully placed around the property. The staff is welcoming,... More

We chose the Rio Sierra for our family for two nights because of its location near Sequoia, and its idyllic spot on the Kaweah River. We weren’t disappointed. Mars and her friendly staff have created a special place, and made us feel immediately comfortable and well looked after. We chose the Master Suite, which is a big 2 bedroom, with... More

This was a wonderful experience all around. Mars was friendly and accommodating, and made sure everything was perfect for our stay. The property is beautiful and was the most relaxing breath of fresh air after a long day of hiking. We swam in the river, cooked on the BBQ, and drank wine sitting on the rocks under the stars.
