Quiet, cozy, inspiring, art-filled cabin: fivespot is a relaxing place for a week or weekend. Just 15 minutes from the entrance to Sequoia Kings Canyon National Parks, it's perfect for couples or small families. After a satisfying journey to see the spectacular sequoia trees, or experiencing rugged Kings Canyon, come back to fivespot and have a cookout, relax on the covered patio, and enjoy the sauna and outdoor shower. Feeling creative? Add something to the chalkboard wall, or stroll to the hilltop behind the cabin and sketch the surrounding foothills. Several painters and writers have already used fivespot as a personal artistic retreat - you can too!

Fivespot is situated in the Giant Sequoia National Monument, and the towering trees in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are only 15 minutes from the cabin. Awesome Kings Canyon is an hour from the sequoias - a jaw-dropping ride down one of the USA's deepest canyons. Visit us in this lesser-known part of the Sierras. Find yourselves alone on the delightful trails and get back to fivespot for more peace and quiet. Or head on down to the Pinehurst Lodge (a 3-minute walk from fivespot) for a drink and dinner. It's a great alternative to the crowded Yosemite experience. More

Homely, quaint, quirky, peaceful, relaxing and eclectic nik-naks all make Five Spot an absolute delight. If you fancy sitting outside having breakfast while humming birds drink nectar from feeders, or if watching the Milky Way in the dark skies appeals, then book to stay here....More

Well equipped kitchen, clear directions and instructions, and fast responses from the owner for any concerns. Very pretty garden; clearly a lot of loving care has been lavished on the house. A smooth and pleasant experience!

About the neighbourhood
Few vacation cabins are as close to Kings Canyon National Park as Fivespot Cabin. A 15-minute drive to its entrance will bring you to the feet of giant sequoias, and an hour more will take you to the bottom of the breathtaking canyon itself. From there discover prime hiking trails, waterfalls, caves and meadows - all without the crowds of Yosemite. Fivespot is located in the heart of the tiny settlement known as Pinehurst. Once a thriving logging community, it is now a sleepy rural retreat. Fortunately for visitors and locals, historic Pinehurst Lodge is open year-round. A family-friendly restaurant and bar, 'the Lodge' (as the locals call it) is a short walk from fivespot and was once a sawmill. Known for its Saturday night Prime Rib special, it's also got a pool table, a jukebox, a de...
