Awesome Little Cabin!
Firstly, Leah is a great owner/operator. Although the oven was not working when we arrived, she provided us with a hot plate, a crock pot, and a toaster oven. She is friendly, courteous, and generally a great person. The cabin itself can fit 4, but better for a couple. Be sure to bring firewood or plan on collecting it on your own. You may also want to bring a few mixing bowls or specific utensils as needed, but overall Leah provides almost everything you might need in a kitchen. Also, bring a wine opener (my wife found that out the hard way…). There was also plenty of coffee and a coffee maker ready for use, along with most basic spices (salt, pepper, olive oil). We also left a couple glasses we knew we didn't want to take home just to help add some stuff to the inventory. The claw foot tub was great and had hot water lickety split! Outside of an additional blanket you might need for the couch in the living room, you are just about set. The surrounding area is awesome! You will have bears and deer locally, along with Nelson Creek Trail nearly 5 minutes up the road. Along with that, the Stagg Tree, Dome Rock, and the Trail of Giants are roughly 30 minutes north or south on HWY 190, depending on which place you're going to. The local tavern is full of friendly locals and the beer on tap is cold! You can also get most basic supplies from the general store at Camp Nelson, but you may want to bring any specifics you might require. My wife and I are roughly 30 years old and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin! The only thing you need to note is that cell phone service cuts out before you make it to Camp Nelson, so be sure to have pictures of the cabin and proper directions as to avoid a mix-up. This place is great for a weekend getaway or exploring the wonders of Sequoia National Forest. I hope this helps and enjoy!
