This riverfront cabin in Kernville has everything! The river with beach area is steps from the backyard,hiking, rafting, tubing, skiing, horseback riding, or just sit in the river with a beer and some friends! With sleeping space for 12, there’s ample room for groups and families. Newly remodeled with a gourmet kitchen, giant bathrooms, outdoor shower, new patio set with propane fire pit, gigantic propane grill, and very comfy beds. Perfect weekend getaway from LA, San Diego or Orange County.

The space

This cabin has been lovingly remodeled and has exclusively been used by family previously. It is immaculate and stocked like a family home with everything you need from spices, cookware, folding chairs, towels, etc... I am familiar with all the hikes and unique things to do in the area and am more than happy to answer any questions. This has been a magical place for our family and we want our guests to love it too!

Guest access

Linens, basic shower supplies, towels, washer/dryer and laundry soap. Beach/River that is steps from the backyard of the cabin, outdoor rain shower, WIFI, premium cable, grill, fire pit, lots of folding chairs, umbrellas, fully stocked kitchen with most condiments already there.

The house has cable and Internet, but mountain service can be spotty. Please understand that sometimes the cable/internet goes out or has a weak signal. If you MUST at all times have internet or TV, the mountains probably aren't the best place for you. :)

Interaction with guests

We aren't local, but we have a local handyman for anything that goes wrong and I am always available via phone, Email, or text for questions.

Other things to note

The Pacific Crest Trail is right down the road. The Kern River Brewery is in town and has some amazing beer - try the Sequoia Red! We have growlers in the pantry that our guests can take to brewery and have filled! My favorite hike, slide rock, is 20 minutes up the road. A short hike to a small falls over smooth rock that you can slide down. The Trail of 100 Giants is 30 minutes up the road. Alta Sierra, the local ski resort, is less than thirty minutes away and is very fun in the winter.

The place was amazing. Clean, quiet, right by the river, big open space etc... Tiana was a great host too!! She responded to my text message very quickly when we had any question. I would definitely recommend staying at this place and I would go back too.

The Lazy Crane is so beautiful and relaxing! Tianna is such a great hostess, very helpful & fast at responding to any questions. The Lazy Crane has everything to make it like home. Great multi family cabin, plenty of sleeping space. Bathrooms are amazing, the kitchen is beyond words, the view from the patio is breathtaking very relaxing. My 7yr loved the spinner swing on the side of the cabin. The Lazy Crane is great all around!

The Lazy Crane is such a fantastic spot. The roaring Kern is right in the back yard (ok, a safe distance from the back porch), and the decor was awesome. Especially the Teepee. There's a well stocked convenience store across the street, and a great super market about 6 minutes by car, not to mention the brewery! Plenty of options for hiking, off roading, rafting, and general mountain wonder right outside the front door.

Tianna's place was awesome! It's perfect for a big group, very roomy. It's right next the river so it's beautiful. Definitely wouldn't recommend "floating" down the river this summer though, the water level is really high - it was cool to see rafters go by. It's only a 6 minute drive from town. Will definitely be coming back in the future!
