Shirley Creek Retreat: A Mountain Oasis

Adults-only cabin in Wofford Heights
Beautiful view from mega deck, retro cabin that sleeps 8, fire pit, steps to running creek full of swimming holes, beautiful mountain trails just outside your door. Lake Isabella, Kern River, Alta Vista Ski Resort & Remington Mineral Baths all within 7 minutes yet relax in solitude on 1/2 acre property surrounded by government land. Wood burning stove, traditional heat & air; everything to make your stay comfy & fun!

The Space:
Beautiful mountain retreat surrounded by wilderness. Great place to just relax, breath and enjoy or have outdoor adventures via hiking trails, water play on the lake or Kern River, visit the trail of 100 Giants, white water rafting, fishing and snow skiing in Alta Vista! Cute retro movie theater in town or dining and entertainment in Kernville, home of the world famous Kernville Brewery. Cute additional cabin that sleeps two as an additional space for the kids or adventurous adults.

Guest access:
You have access to the whole house, including 1.5 baths, kitchen with microwave and other amenities. Also, wifi and netflix, hulu and amazon prime as well as a huge deck that must be seen to be appreciated. You can lounge on the deck and greet the deer, birds and squirrels or sit by the wood burning stove for indoor fires and a beautiful stone fire pit for outdoor fun. So much to explore on the property alone, but also surrounded by government land full of creeks, trees, trails and endless mountains.

Guest interaction:
I am just a phone call or email away in case you have any questions about the home or area. Happy to help!

Neighborhood overview:
Pala Rancho Estates is a small group of homes nestled in the mountains. Shirley Creek Retreat is bordered by two creeks and at the edge of the community so you feel utterly alone while on your property and are surrounded on all sides by beautiful forestry land with trees and all kinds of wildlife.

Getting around in the area:
So very close to so much! Within minutes: Alta Vista Ski Resort (skiing, tubing and sledding), beautiful Lake Isabella for swimming, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, Kernville for night life and amazing restaurants as well as world famous Kernville Brewing Company, Kern River for white water rafting, tubing and swimming, Remington mineral baths for the most extraordinary secluded bathing experience right on the river! Plus, short drive to Trail of 100 Giants and the crystal caves. So much to partake of!
Rooms open to patios. Televisions come with Netflix. Accommodations have kitchens with microwaves. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

5/5 Excellent

Exceeded expectations
We came into this trip just looking for a a quiet place to get out of the city for a while, but it turned into an amazing experience and we ended up having the time of our lives. There is so much to do in the area, so many characters to meet, and such a relaxing ambience on the property. The house may not resemble a 5 star hotel, but it is a million times nicer than what we were expecting for the price. Comfy bed, nice kitchen, and breathtaking views. We will definitely be coming back!

5/5 Excellent

Nice peppery
Loved the property.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful anniversary trip
We want to thank Sharon for letting us rent out this beautiful cabin. My boyfriend and I came up there for our anniversary and we loved every bit of the trip. The cabin made us feel at home. We loved the fact that the outside was close to a little lake with a great view, so we took pictures and had a couple drinks enjoying every moment. Thank you again Sharon, we will definitely be back!

4/5 Good

Perfect Getaway for My Birthday in the Middle of a Pandemic
We always try to go up to the mountains for my birthday and we found this gem. It's such a quiet and private that we really enjoyed ourselves tremendously! All you hear are the creek, birds and the scuffling of squirrels around. We LOVE firepits and they had 2 to choose from! We cooked every meal for the 2-3 days we were there to avoid contact with other people and they have EVERYTHING you need. This place is FANTASTIC! The only comment we have is maybe slight upgrade to the place but it's definitely not a deal-breaker and we will be coming back! Thank you so much, Sharon!

4/5 Good

We had a great time out here. Nice little getaway.
