We stayed two nights in the Sequoia Gem loft and can say it was the best experience we have ever had. I believe a better name for the loft, the grounds, and location would best be described as a retreat. The loft is located directly above the river and all of our needs were taken care of in perfect detail....

Imagine a combination of the most luxurious 5 star hotel and the friendliest mom and pop motel. Put this in the most beautiful part of California in a town full of friendly people. We loved it. It is obvious that the owners have put a lot of love into this business.

Many others might feel the same way about this gem of a site to stay. It was hard to believe that all of the positive comments could actually be true -- but they are. We stayed in the Annex Suite, just off the highway. I was concerned that it would not be peaceful due to the location. But we really...

We stayed in Kaweah Gem suite. It rained most of our two night stay which made the river roar. It was beautiful. The suite is very comfortable and romantic. I would love to stay here each season. It's close to Sequoia National Park.

The River Jewel Three Rivers has mastered the art of hospitality that naturally flows into a palpable experience as constant as the soothing riffles of Middle Fork creek itself. River Jewel serves as a place to ground your mind, body and spirit! See for yourself!

We agree, this is the best place by Sequoia Park to unwind! We are so glad that you felt at home and relaxed at The River Jewel Suites. The sounds of the main fork river are indeed soothing and a dip in the water is so refreshing. We look forward to your next visit.

I can only reiterate what other reviewers have written. Immaculate, quirky and close to giant sequoias. The river for floating on (a real lazy river) was great fun and supermarket nearby had all the bbq stuff we needed. We stayed two nights and had clear skies for both, saw shooting stars and the Milky Way. Diana was friendly and the...

Thank you so much for your review. Yes, the stars are amazing here at The River Jewel Suites. Even after living in the area for years, I am still in awe whenever I step outside in the evening and look up! The water in the river is snowmelt from the High Sierras ( Sequoia Park, etc.). So it changes with...

The Annex is a beautifully designed and furnished studio unit, within easy walking distance of a serene swimming hole on the Kaweah River, and a short drive to the southern entrance to Sequoia National Park. The bed, couch and armchairs were new and very comfortable. The towels and bedding felt luxurious. Huge kitchen area, with coffee maker, full refrigerator (furnished...

We stayed in the Annex suite because the other rooms were booked out, it was a 5 minute walk to the river which was just gorgeous. We took a bottle of champagne and sat on rock with our feet in the water. We enjoyed the firepit and cooked ribs on the bbq which were mouth watering. Would highly recommend staying...
