Art and Nature Lover's Retreat, 15 Min to Sequoia-Kings Canyon

Family-friendly cottage in Badger with sauna
Quiet, cozy, inspiring, art-filled: Fivespot is a relaxing destination for a week or weekend, perfect for couples or small families. Enjoy the books, the sauna and outdoor shower, the claw-foot bathtub, the fireplace, and lots of cozy pillows and throws.

Stretch out and do something 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.

There's comfort and convenience: a covered stone patio, gas bbq, kitchen with all the trimmings, and lots of outdoor space means you can cook and dine inside or out.

Year-round comfort and fun at Fivespot:
Summer is the high season in the Sierras, for good reason: the sun shines from June through October. Hiking trails are open, wildlife and wildflowers abound. But we locals enjoy the fall, winter, and spring even more: sun gives way to rain and snow, life quiets down, time to rest and renew. Fivespot is perfect for an off-season retreat. The road to the cabin is kept cleared of snow, and the road into the Parks is accessible if you have 4-wheel drive or chains (we can help you with that). The fireplace and sauna keep you cozy; you've got time to think, write, read, or just relax. It's a delightful time of year - please consider a visit!

Winter activities at and around Fivespot:
Winter is never far from Fivespot: at 4000' elevation, we get at least one substantial storm each year. If you are lucky enough to be here at the perfect moment, you can snowshoe right out the back door. But the cabin is also perfectly situated for near-certain winter adventures - it's just a 15 minute drive to the entrance of Kings Canyon National Park, where sequoias are blanketed in deep snow all winter. And Fivespot is located on a well-maintained state road, so getting here is easy. Snow play, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing are these Parks' best winter activities.

Lovely Property!
We stayed here while visiting Kings Canyon & Sequoia -- the property is 15 minutes away from the entrance. We loved the decor of the home -- lots of great art and 2 nice patios. A plus is that the owners are onsite and easily accessible (but they're not intrusive).

Great Sequoia/Kings Canyon retreat!
As advertised property! Family of five w/3 teen girls enjoyed this stay! Very clean and well stocked, thank you. Outdoor shower made getting cleaned up after a day of hiking a quicker process. Enjoyed the covered porch and patio morning and night! Was in the upper 80’s low 90’s and the Swamp Cooler had no problems making it feel great in the cabin!! Much wildlife around the cabin to watch. Would definitely recommend a stay!! Thanks Again!

Perfect Getaway
We were welcomed by Mahalia, she was very pleasant. We had an awesome time celebrating my birthday. The cabin was the perfect getaway. It had everything that we could think of and more. The kitchen also had a refrigerator, microwave and stove. Everywhere we looked had dainty details and books. We woke up to turkey's gobbling and bluejays. We will definitely be coming back soon, next time with the entire family. It was a dream come true

Amazing Family time
If you are looking for family place to stay, Fivespot is for you!!!! Cabin is well taking care of by owners! It’s super clean, well stocked, comfortable and it’s a great location to King Canyon and Sequoia Nationals Parks! It’s in a quiet neighborhood, so you get well rested after day of climbing and hiking! Kids can run around in a huge backyard, climb couple old trees, gather pine cones and just roll in grass!!! There are wild turkeys that come around pretty frequently and kids will have tons of fun watching those! Sauna is amazing and you can relax afterwards on patio! Be aware, location in deep in national park, so there aren’t near by grocery stores or gas stations, so bring everything you’ll need with you, but owners are pretty aware of that and cabin has many things you might haven’t thought about to bring or just forgot! (Like Coffee!) I would recommend this cabin to anyone! Thank you for great Spring Break vacation!

Cozy spot great for small families
We had a great time - family of 4, very young kids. Lots of room outdoors to explore, great views. Our preschooler loved the little toys and art everywhere - kept him busy. Be sure to read all the great instructions from the host about traveling to the area etc. Very few stores and restaurants around but the kitchen and bathroom are very well stocked with items you may have forgotten. Just around the corner from Kings Canyon; some parts of Sequoia park are currently (early 2022) less accessible from this location due to road closures from the KNP fire last year, but everything is still well within a day trip away. Back BBQ area is so nice!
