From a warm welcome to a gracious goodbye the Landrys look after you with love. It felt more like going to see grandma than staying in a bed and breakfast. We look forward to stopping by again another time. Some good eating out options not to far away and a short drive into the park, making it ideally situated.
4.8 on November 21, 2016
From the moment we arrived until our departure, we felt very welcome. The rooms were so much fun. And the breakfast in the morning was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to be back soon.

Maureen is such a fantastic host, and we were incredibly blessed to be able to stay with her for the weekend. The breakfast was delicious, the room was comfortable, and Maureen made it feel like we were at home. Highly recommend.

During our USA road trip we stayed at the log house. The interior is over the top awesome and the service is great. Although just for one night this was one great stay that makes this trip.

Mauriene & Tim did an outstanding job with this property, it's absolutely gorgeous! Also Mauriene did a fabulous job hosting us and her food was to die for! Everything was exceptional, I will recommend this place to everyone :)

Amazing host, amazing room & delicious breakfast!
5 on August 13, 2016
My wife and I stayed three nights to get away from the craziness of the city and rest and relax. Our stay here achieved exactly that. The environment is quiet and peaceful, the views are lovely, and the food and company are wonderful. I was particularly impressed with the ability and willingness to be successfully flexible with a very restricted diet. And what's more, Sequoia National Forest is only 10 minutes away! Overall, I highly recommend the Log House Lodge for your next getaway.

The Log House Lodge was by far one of the best B&B's we have stayed at. Mauriene Landry was such a gracious hostess, and the facility was outstanding. We would recommend this lodge to anyone visiting the Sequoia Park.
5 on June 22, 2016
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Log House Lodge. We received a very warm welcome from our host who prepared us a delicious breakfast and offered great recommendations of things to do during our stay. The lodge was quaint and so wonderfully decorated. We loved all the attention to detail that went into the decor. This was a beautiful property and we will be sure to return for a visit next time we are in the area.
4.8 on June 17, 2016
Four adults stayed in the pioneer suite for four nights. It was very comfortable and convenient to the national park. Mauriene keeps the shelves and refrigerator well stocked. I would highly recommend The Log House Lodge for visitors to Sequoia.
5 on May 25, 2016
This lovely log home was like finding a diamond. It's location to the entrance of the Sequoia National Park was perfect. Mauriene & Tim truly open their home to their visitors and make them feel so welcome. Mauriene's knowledge of the area and California was very value to us as this was our fist visit to California. Tula, their dog was the most precious little thing. Mauriene's Elvis Presley crepes were out of this world and luckily for us, stayed with us until mid-afternoon. If we are ever in the area again, we will most definitely stay with them again.

Such a wonderful place with exceptional service!

Nice quiet setting. Small and intimate.

The Lodge was a wonderful welcome inside as well as the outside. Rooms were decorated giving a warm and rustic mountain atmosphere. The host was delightful and engaging. Delicious breakfasts were served we had a most enjoyable time.
5 on January 23, 2016
The Log House Lodge was the perfect place for a getaway. The bed was comfortable, the room was nice, the breakfast was delicious, the host (Mauriene) was a blessing, and the mountains were beautiful. We stayed for 2 nights and spent most of our time in nearby Sequoia National Park. As we drove away, the snow capped mountains in my rearview mirror seemed to be telling me turn around and stay another night. We'll be back!
5 on January 04, 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It was just minutes from great hikes and a cozy little town, and the owners were very sweet and enjoyable to converse with. Would love to go back one day.
4.0 on August 23, 2015
We stopped at the log house before the visit to Sequoia park. We were very well received and had a great time in this place. Breakfast was wonderful and the place feel like a very comfortable home. I definitely recommend the B&B

endroit hors du temps, trés dépaysant Accueil trés chalereux et petit déjeuner extraordinaire

Unlikely to discover a more local, convenient to services, Disney like experience in a Bed & Breakfast at the entrance to the Giants. You will not be disappointed.
5 on April 18, 2015
Our stay at the Log House Lodge was outstanding. Great value for your money. Wish we could have afforded to stay there more nights. Best place to stay in Three Rivers area. Mauriene puts out quite a spread for breakfast and has a great personality. Super friendly and welcomes young kids to stay at the lodge. We had our 7 year old boy sleep with us in our room on a cot provided by the hosts. He loved the place.
5 on April 13, 2015
I took my wife here for a weekend getaway and LOVED it! Scenery was great! We had a fun and relaxing time. The breakfast provided was unbelievable! Fresh and delicious homemade breakfast! Lake nearby and a small town about 25 minutes away with some great dining options. We will definitely be back!
4.8 on March 09, 2015
My wife and I stayed for two nights and were very pleased with our time. Mauriene and Tim have put thought into many details. The rustic decor is very fun and the rooms are clean comfortable and roomy. Their hospitality and genuine love was evident without being overbearing and made for a wonderful time of rest and relaxation. Breakfast was delicious as well!
5 on December 25, 2014
Warm and hospitable cabin in the woods near an incredible national park! What more could you ask for?
5 on December 10, 2014
Mauriene (the owner) was so friendly, responsive, and polite. She has really thought of everything you might need while on your stay, and everything was perfect. She even cooked breakfast burritos and breakfast sandwiches and put them in the freezer in case we got hungry! We made a very last minute reservation in the pioneer suite and it was awesome. Beautiful views of the mountains from a large private deck, covered parking, and only about a 10 minute drive to the foot hills visitor center inside Sequoia National Park. We also listened to her restaurant recommendations and had a delicious dinner at Ol' Buckaroo's -- which was all locally sourced from farms around the area. It's truly a place for rest and relaxation. We will be back to stay next time with a bigger group! Thank you, Log House Lodge!
5 on December 08, 2014
Couldn't have asked for more- the welcoming hosts, the cozy rooms, the charming town of Three Rivers, & the majestic Sequoias!!! Can't wait to go back for more! Did I mention that Mauriene cooks an unforgettable breakfast?!?
4.0 on November 18, 2014
We stayed at the Log House Lodge in November 2014 and what a delicious treat it was. Everything was perfect and Mauriene and Tim have created a haven of peace and tranquility. Nothing has been overlooked and attention to detail and to guests needs are spot on. I would recommend the accommodation to anyone looking for a unique and satisfying experience. Breakfasts were great.
5 on October 29, 2014
Title says it all, we had a great time and the breakfast was excellent. Very original and worth the stay
4.8 on October 16, 2014
It was fantastic. Everything was perfect and the food was great. Go there and enjoy the park.
4.2 on September 28, 2014
Great place for a get away. Very comfortable, beautiful decor and great views. We stayed in the pioneer suite and the attention to detail on 1880 decor was wonderful. You really do step back in time, but with all the convenience of running water, beautiful fully fitted kitchen and bathroom. The owner was great she even baked us fresh muffins. In all a relaxed and very comfortable two days.
5 on September 26, 2014
A very warm en hospitable stay. Maureen and Tim thnx a lot! Greetings, Boy and Lisette from the Netherlands
5 on September 25, 2014
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Log House Lodge. The food was incredible. Definitely our favorite part of the trip! Location is also wonderful as you are so close to the Sequoia National Park. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast!
4.4 on September 18, 2014
We had a great stay at the Log House lodge. Our room was big and nicely decorated (lots of details) and the owner Maureen made great breakfasts and gave us tips on the hikes in Sequoia N.P. We would recommend staying here.
4.2 on September 14, 2014
My new husband and I spent two nights at the Log House Lodge B&B during our honeymoon in California this summer. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the Lodge and felt right at home in the High Sierra Room. The Log House Lodge is conveniently situated close to a variety of dining options in the small town of Three Rivers, which proved convenient for us as we were kept busy during our days hiking in Sequoia National Park (and when we got back to the Lodge, we didn't want to travel too far to get our dinner!) Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this B&B to others looking for a rustic and restful place to stay.
3.8 on September 11, 2014
Absolutely loved the place!
5 on September 08, 2014
First, Mauriene is amazing. She is so friendly and a great cook. The entire time felt like we were staying at a friends house for the weekend. We were close to Sequoia National Park and she was able to give us recommendations. I loved our room with the rustic cabin feel and the old time radio stations in the room.
4.6 on August 27, 2014
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while exploring Sequoia. Maureen is a very gracious and welcoming host and provided 2 of the best breakfasts I've ever had. The room and bathroom were both very clean and comfortable. The house is in the heart of Three Rivers and close to plenty of restaurants and gas stations. The only downside is while you are 10 mins from the beginning of the park, it will take you another 40 mins to actually drive into the park. More than worth the drive as Sequoia is amazing but something to consider. If you do decide to stay outside of the park this is hands down the place to stay.
5 on July 26, 2014
We stayed in the Pioneer suite for the first time. It was very spacious and comfortable. As usual, Mauriene was warm and pleasant, which makes the stay even better.
4.0 on July 26, 2014
We stayed in the Rosebud room, which was very unique and lovely. The Lodge itself is very personal and so are the hosts. We had to hit the road very early in the morning and our host even got up to prepare us a breakfast on the go that was absolutely delicious!!
5 on July 19, 2014
We recently stayed in the pioneer suite and it more than exceeded our expectations. It's a perfect B and B to stay at while visiting the park. The kids loved the old west ambience, just made everyone want to put down their electronics and go back to simpler more family oriented time. We would highly recommend this place and wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks Maurienne!
1.8 on July 18, 2014
We rented what we thought was the entire log house but discovered upon arrival we rented only the basement. The unit was large but very dark, but very loud with other people walking upstairs. Window air conditioners kept us cool but were so loud that sleeping was nearly impossible. Breakfast consisted of dry cereal or frozen sausage biscuits. Perhaps this lodging is the best Sequoia has to offer, but for $375 plus tax, we found it to be a very poor value and a disappointment.
5 on July 12, 2014
The Log House was an outstanding experience in all possible ways!
3.6 on June 23, 2014
2 night stay for Sequoia National Park

We enyojed our stay in this great b&b and feeled like cowboys 100 years before.
4.8 on June 20, 2014
Wow - We had high expectations for the Log House Lodge because it appeared to be a perfect place for us; however, the stay exceeded our expectations. Maureen was a fantastic hostess and her breakfasts were unreal. She made us feel at home. The rooms were great, the house was terrific and the surroundings were beautiful. We hope to be back at some point in the future. Thanks, Maureen.
5 on June 07, 2014
We enjoyed every second of staying here.
5 on June 06, 2014
My wife and I had a great time at this B&B. The hosts were wonderful, the food delicious, and the property scenic and relaxing. Highly recommended!
5 on May 15, 2014
The location is quiet and beautiful, the gardens are relaxing, the rooms are inviting and comfortable, the food was outstanding - the little details really made you feel special and cared for.
5 on April 21, 2014
The Log House Lodge is an amazing place where you can easily relax from life in a big town. Great view around the house, close location to the Sequoia National Park and friendly owners make your time there something you will not quickly forget!
5 on April 20, 2014
My wife and I spent two awesome nights at the Log House Lodge. Mauriene was a great host, and we felt really comfortable at the lodge. The decor is just exceptional, what made it even better was hearing from Mauriene how they conceptualize and started the B&B. They really put a lot of effort in making this place so great. Definitely a top choice if you're going to stay in Three Rivers.
5 on April 03, 2014
What a relaxing place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We loved our tool and the breakfasts were outstanding!
4.8 on March 18, 2014
The hosts were extremely welcoming and accomodating, and the breakfasts were out of this world. The backyard was refreshing with the fountain, and Sequoia Park is nice and close. Definitely worth a trip to visit!
5 on March 06, 2014
The Log House Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to put up your feet and relax. The rooms are beautifully decorated as is the rest of the house. The food is excellent and the coffee hot. We so enjoyed getting to visit with the hosts who made our stay so memorable. And we really enjoyed our late night black and white film!
4.6 on February 20, 2014
My husband and I recently stayed at the Log House Lodge for our Wedding Anniversary. Mauriene and Tim made sure we had an enjoyable and memorable stay. We felt as if we were favorite family members that had come to visit for the weekend. Whether you want to sight see around the nearby National Park, shop some quaint shops or dine at a restaurant on the river....this Bed and Breakfast is in such a great location and has it all! Mauriene's breakfasts were outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit! Cathy and Darrell A.
5 on November 25, 2013
Maureen is a wonderful host, very friendly and outgoing. She welcomed us into her home, showed us around, gave us information about the area, what to see, where to eat and what to stay away from. She wasn't wrong either. We were absolutely 100% pleased with our accommodations and would do it again without hesitation. The Log House Home is a wonderful place to begin and end your day. Thank you Maureen! You made our trip to the National Parks a fun and relaxing time despite the government shutdown. You're a wonderful person and we'd love to come stay with you again. We really enjoyed getting to know you a bit. May God bless you and your husband in the days ahead. We hope to see you again! Bill & Chris; Hagerstown, MD.
5 on October 14, 2013
We stayed for 2 nights at The Log House. The rooms are very nice and the breakfasts were delicious. We would certainly recommend this B &B
4.2 on September 27, 2013
Maurine is a very gracious and knowlegeable host. She was very helpful with directions for everything from the parks to her suggested places to dine. We stayed in the High Sierra room and found it quite comfortable. It does have a shared bathroom but that was never an issue. The rooms are filled with many interesting items, maybe a little too much as you really can't focus on just one item. Breakfasts where very good and she did want to accomodate any personal preferences. So close to the park but not actually in the park - a great location! Lovely porch to watch the sun set over the mountain, the cats might even join you there. We had a wonderful time at this B&B.
4.6 on September 17, 2013
My husband and I greatly enjoyed the atmosphere of this bed and breakfast and the service that was provided with it. Great breakfast too!
5 on September 17, 2013
We enjoyed a very enjoyable and relaxing two night stay at Log House Lodge. From the warm greeting to the warm farewell by the hostess, we were entirely blessed by the almost Disney themed log home in the Sequoias. The breakfasts were gourmet, nutritious and delicious and we greatly enjoyed the conversation around the table with the hostess and other guests. Staying at the Log House Lodge was an unforgettable experience! We also loved the restaurants in the town of Three Rivers and exploring the nearby Sequoia National Forest!
5 on September 09, 2013
We loved the setting, comfort and best of all Sandy's company and breakfasts.
4.6 on September 05, 2013
Beautiful home that we shared! Felt very welcome and loved all the little touches. Drinking wine on the verandah a particular joy and great breakfast.
4.8 on September 03, 2013
If you plan to visit Sequoia and stay in this beautiful area you should go and chose the Log House Lodge. This place, with all this lovely little details will give you the greatest BB experience you may expect! We can only recommend Mauriene's and Tim's place. The Kraft's Family, Germany
5 on August 06, 2013
Superb homemade breakfast, and a very friendly atmosphere
5 on June 18, 2013
It was fantastic! The place is very charming and the breakfast is very very very good!!! Very close to the entrance of Sequoia National Park.
5 on May 26, 2013
The Log House Lodge is the perfect launching spot for hiking in the Sequoias. We had the best gourmet sour cream pancakes with cherry sauce and amazing spicy egg souffle for our two breakfasts, a welcome bottle of wine to sip on the hummingbird filled front deck, and a large and cozy room with nice views. All in all it was very high value. Maureen knows just what tired hikers need for a good time!
5 on May 22, 2013
This places is in a central location to local restaurants, stores, outdoor recreation, and Sequoia Park. The owners are attentive to your needs. If they find out about your preference/Diet restrictions, they will try to accommodate you without you mentioning it. I recommend this place for whoever wants to escape the fast pace of city life for a quiet quaint retreat.
4.8 on May 20, 2013
I was fortunate enough to enjoy one night in this nice little B&B. Maureen's breakfast hit the spot perfectly. We shared the house with two other guest, and enjoyed their company at breakfast. The room was perfect and the grounds were beautiful. Highly recommend......
5 on May 14, 2013
My wife and I spent our three-year anniversary here. She, having recently immigrated here from another country, thoroughly enjoyed the exposure to the Old-Timey music and decorum which she had only before seen in movies. This was our best anniversary yet largely due to the generous hospitality and wonderful relaxation at The Log House Lodge.
5 on April 23, 2013
The Log House Lodge provided a wonderful escape while providing a great launching pad for enjoying Sequoia National Forest. Maureen is a very thoughtful, kind lady who genuinely cares about the experiences of her guests. She keeps the place spotless and is a fantastic cook. Each morning, she serves up tasty breakfasts in huge portions. She even made a special breakfast each morning for our three-year-old daughter. The place is decorated tastefully and not overdone and it really feels like you're at a home away from home. Needless to say, we are very grateful that we found the Log House Lodge and highly recommend it!
5 on February 25, 2013
My husband and I stayed two nights at the Log House Lodge and LOVED it. The hosts were gracious and warm, the rooms were roomy and beautiful, the food was scrumptious, and the lodge was conveniently located near the Sequoia National Park, which we explored. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
5 on February 20, 2013
I had a quiet, peaceful, stay at The Log House Lodge! Maurine is lovely and her home is warm and inviting. The bed in the Rose Bud Room is THE MOST AMAZING BED I have ever slept in. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this B&B.
4.4 on January 05, 2013
Wonderful place to stay, so close to Sequioa! Great Mountain View and rustic rooms! Food was excellent! Loved it there!
5 on January 02, 2013
We were at the Log House Lodge to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and it was the pefect place. We were very well taken care of, the Log House Lodge is beautiful and Tim and Maureen are wonderful! Highly recommend to anyone interested in a perfect Bed and Breakfast experience.
4.8 on October 02, 2012
I took my girlfriend up to Sequoia for her birthday, and wanted to do something neither of us had ever done before, so I booked us a room at the Log House Lodge. We were both nervous, because we didn't know what to expect, but staying here was wonderful. Mauriene was incredibly sweet and one heck of a cook. Breakfast was amazing. The room was very comfortable and relaxing. I really appreciated the lack of television, but the ability to connect to wifi if needed. We look forward to our next visit to the Log House Lodge.
5 on September 26, 2012
We stayed here during our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. The high sierra room was great and we found that sharing a bathroom with the 3 other rooms was not a problem at all. Her breakfasts were delicious and my husband loved the hummingbirds that were constantly flying around the porch feeders. The town itself isn't much to sing about, but staying at this B&B made it worth it. We definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting the nearby parks.
3.4 on August 30, 2012
We had a warm welcome from Mauriene. The place is beautiful and the view outstanding. The beakfast is good. We stay 3 nights and it was the perfect place to be to visit Sequoia and King Canyon NP.
5 on August 15, 2012
The rooms were decorated very well, everything fit but there was still a wide variety of decorations. The breakfast in the morning was excellent and we enjoyed a pleasant conversation with Mauriene and Tim.
5 on August 13, 2012
My wife and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary in Sequoia. We could not think of a better place to stay. The lodge was great, room was clean and comfortable, and the chats with Mauriene were interesting, fun and engaging. She is a wonderful hostess. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great room at a great rate in a perfect location to visit the park.
4.6 on August 06, 2012
Mauriene is a wonderful hostess and we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The Rose Room was lovely, if a bit too frilly for our tastes, but we feel lucky to have been able to lodge at the Log House!
5 on August 06, 2012
We stayed for one night, and regretted only booking a night as soon as we arrived at The Log House Lodge. We had a lovely welcome from the owner and the gorgeous dog. As we were the only guests that night, Mauriene gave us the option to choose which room we wanted, even though we had paid for the cheaper room. This was a really sweet touch particularly as we got a lovely bottle of wine out of it. Thanks Mauriene! The decor at the Lodge is just amazing - so much time and effort has gone into it. It was a lovely, peaceful place to stay. Sitting on the balcony in the evening drinking red wine, was so relaxing. And I can't finish this review without mentioning breakfast - delicious. Thanks Mauriene for a fantastic stay. If we ever visit this area again in the future we will definitely be coming to stay again. Becky & Gareth
5 on July 21, 2012
Very comfortable room, great breakfast, wonderful host, lovely property (particularly the fountain/waterfalls) and off the main road - would definitely book again!
5 on July 18, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay at The Log House Lodge. We were there for 3 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. Our hostess provided some very nice meals.
5 on July 17, 2012
I admit, I am one of those city girls who cannot forgo my curling iron and lighted make up mirror, so when my husband told me he had booked us on a log cabin getaway I immediately thought of ways to get out of it! What a mistake it would have been! DOWN TO EVERY LAST DETAIL, this log house was equipped with every imaginable delight of a log house, with all of the 21st century amenities I have become accustomed to. Every single piece of furniture and decor was well thought out and placed throughout. A large gorgeous living room with wood floors and two large sofas that turn into large sofa beds at night for up to four extra guests! A fully stocked and well -equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and a master bedroom that was to die for! Whether you listen to music from the phonogram (which has a working radio and cd player) or sit outside on the balcony watching the beautiful mountain views-- this place is a little bit of heaven on earth! I kept saying that I felt as if I were staying inside on of the Disneyland rides, becasue everything was so magical-- and NO WONDER... the owner is a Disney Imagineer who worked on the Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion-- makes sense now why every detail was so perfect! The ABSOLUTE ONLY thing I would have liked that they lacked was breakfast in the morning. On vacation, I HATE to cook-- as most city girls do. But we were told that since the kitchen comes fully equipped, breakfast is not included. I would have thought that since this is the most expensive of the rooms available, breakfast should be, then the guests would have the option of cooking lunch and dinner if they liked. The other missing thing was a barbeque, for smores or outdoor cooking, which is what one likes to do on mountain getaways-- other than that, ti was AMAZING and I would guarantee you will have the most enjoyable stay of your life!
5 on July 12, 2012
I cannot emphasize how great my experience at the Log House Lodge was. Mauriene was very hospitable, warm, and nice. The service, food and lodging exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend anyone to stay here if they can.
4.2 on July 07, 2012
I recently took my family ( a party of 7) to the log house lodge for the 4th of July. I was more than thrilled when Maurine opened the doors to the Pioneer suite. This suite has everything. Movies, board games, kitchen equipment Air conditioning...I felt foolish packing my whisk and pans. The decor is wonderfully charming with an old west flare. We also rented the two bed and breakfast rooms (high sierra room and rosebud room). Although I was not one from my party to sleep in either room, I was told that there was no control in their rooms for the AC and it began to warm up fast when the AC was shut off. These rooms do come with electric fans that you may use. I would recommend staying in these two rooms in the spring or fall when the outside temperature is much cooler. . The rooms are spacious and decorated with charm I really feel that the highlight of this bed and breakfast is the Pioneer Suite. It even has its own washer and dryer as well as AC. We will definitely return!
5 on June 27, 2012
This amazing disneyesque B&B is located next to one of the most majestic forests in the US. A genuine welcome and great hospitality. Highly recommended!
4.6 on June 22, 2012
We stayed for three nights. Mauriene made us comfortable and at home. The Lodge is a stone's throw from the park and made visiting easy, especially after the delicious home-cooked breakfast. If you want a comfortable and restful B&B when visiting the Sequoia National Park, we recommend The Log House Lodge.
5 on June 21, 2012
We stayed at the Log House in June,2012. The room is clean and decorated with lots of thoughts. Mauriene welcomed us like old friends and yet we have all the privacy. If I ever visit Sequoia/Kings I'd stay at the Log House again.
5 on June 20, 2012
This B&B is a 10 minute drive from Sequoia National Forest. Town dining is very reasonably priced and it makes for a wonderfully quiet getaway. We loved our time there and enjoyed getting to know the innkeeper.
4.0 on June 11, 2012
The B&B was very nice and the breakfast in the morning was delicious. Mauriene was extremely nice and informative. We also, thoroughly enjoyed the wine. The only thing I would change is to leave the air conditioning on longer at night. It was a warm night and took some hours to cool the upstairs rooms - the fan did help!
3.6 on May 25, 2012
This B&B is very relaxing and a step back in time. Our room had an old time radio with tunes from the 40's and 50's. Loved the nostalgia! Bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic! We were able to look at the vacation rental downstairs and it is a knockout space. Wow!!! Would definitely recommend this great spot!
5 on May 23, 2012
The Landrys have an amazing bed and breakfast and Mauriene takes the regular-old-run-o-the-mill-hospitality ideal and leaves it wallowing in the dust as she spoils each of her guests and does it with a smile! The views from all the rooms are spectacular and the rooms themselves are amazing as well; the pictures are beautiful, but they don't do the place justice nor can they show the extraordinary hospitality and care that is in this place! My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and it was amazing: great views; great folks; great hospitality; great food; great ministry!
5 on May 20, 2012
Marlene was so genuine and a great hostess! You will not be disappointed if you chose to stay here. Enjoy the waterfall behind the house and the meticulous detail put intoevery room in the area you will be staying.
5 on May 18, 2012
The Log House Lodge is a treasured find. Quite, peaceful and a step into the Old West's past. The owners Maureen and Tim go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. This lodge is different from any other place I have ever stayed. A+++
5 on May 01, 2012
The location of this B&B is great if you want some adventure or if you just want to relax. Tim and Maureen are the nicest people you could ever want to meet. Maureen is a great cook as well. The Lodge gives off a very nostalgic feel. There are so many neat items that fill the house you won't be able to see them all. I would definitely come back here again and highly recommend this B&B to others. Stayed April 27-29 2012
5 on April 24, 2012
Tim & Mauriene are such hospitable and kind hosts. Mauriene made delicious breakfasts. The rooms were comfortable and creatively decorated. The lodge is located in the town of Three Rivers with a number of restaurants, small shops, and antique stores and is not too far from Sequoia. My wife and I had a wonderful time and highly recommend it!
4.8 on April 17, 2012
Would recommend this to anyone looking for a quite getaway or for anyone looking for a place from which you can explore the Sequoia National Park
5 on April 16, 2012
A great place to get away from a busy world...

My wife and I wanted a weekend getaway and found the most perfect one we could have imagined. Everything about our stay at The Log House Lodge was incredible. The area was beautiful, the home was exquisite, the food was fantastic, and the company was exceptional! We will definitely return for another stay as soon as we can!

This Bed and Breakfast is in a GREAT location, just a 10 minute drive away to the Entrance of the Sequoia National Park. The time of year we went was in February, be prepared to bring snow chains if your going into the park. We LOVED our stay, my husband and I were the only ones there that weekend so we had the joy of enjoying a lot of amenities just for ourselves. We loved our room, cute set up and arrangement. What we loved most was Mauriene and Tim, they are AWESOME. We felt like family and felt very comfortable around them. And boy do they treat their guests to some amazing food, Mauriene's cooking is simply delicious. She spoiled us at every breakfast. We cannot recommend this place enough to couples.

Tim and Mauriene Landry were wonderful, hospitable hosts. The room was clean and the decor was magically nostalgic. I felt like I had stepped back in time as I relaxed into the old country decor of the room. Breakfast was delicious: zucchini fritters and a yummy mix of fresh fruit and mint infused yogurt. Sequoia National Park was only a short drive away. We were well rested to enjoy the national park because of our stay at Log House Lodge!

We had a fantastic time in the Sequoia National Park while staying 2 nights at the Log House Lodge. The owners are generous and pleasant individuals were enjoyable and very hospitable. Great option to stay in a place get away and rest as well as enjoying really good food!! My wife and I were truly refreshed during our stay at the Log House Lodge.

My family and I had a lovely time staying at this home.
4.6 on November 22, 2011
We were hiking in Sequoia and Kings Canyon and wanted a B&B instead of a hotel. Couldn't have decided on a better place. Tim and Mauriene made us feel like visiting friends rather than customers. Beautiful location. Every time we looked around the room we found something new. We'd go back!
3.6 on November 18, 2011
Ours was a last minute plan so we booked basis the online reviews but whilst driving (it was our first US trip) we were apprehensive as we approached. All this changed the moment we checked-in; it is a beautiful property and everything is so well thought through and meticulously arranged that it makes you feel special. Mauriene - our hostess - is a wonderful person and serves wonderful and copious amount of breakfast. She helped us with suggestions and advice which was useful. In the end we extended our stay by a day here :) And on our next visit will surely stop over; again.
4.6 on October 31, 2011
We had a wonderful time. Very peaceful and relaxing. Tim and Maurine were great hosts, and helped us enjoy our time in the park.
4.4 on October 19, 2011
My husband and I recently took a trip to the Log house Lodge to escape the city. Mauriene and Tim are the sweetest people and took great care of us! Breakfast each morning was completely amazing! The rooms are cute and clean and there is lots of shared space to hang out in. The only down side is the two guest rooms have to share a bathroom, but it was never a problem for us. There are sinks in each of the rooms and that helped. Totally recommend this B&B!
5 on September 22, 2011
We would encourage you to try out the Loghouse, the rooms are fantastic and the breakfast is legendary.
5 on September 19, 2011
Is a beautiful place and in a wonderful location (very near to the Sequoia National Park). The owners Mauriene & Tim are really nice and made us feel like home. If we come back to this area, we would love to stay here again.
3.4 on August 27, 2011
Would highly recommend this accommodation. Rooms are exceptional and the breakfasts are beautifuuly prepared and presented - some of the nicest we have had
3.6 on August 23, 2011
was greeted with a warm welcome,beautiful views from the house.was in easy access to sequoia nat. park.
5 on August 16, 2011
Every detail from the moment we arrived swept us away to another place and time. Tim and Mauriene have gone to great lengths to prepare an ideal getaway from the rigors of daily life. Their thoughtfulness is revealed in every element and gesture. The food was fantastic and our host was very gracious. The location is perfect for an outdoor excursion amidst the famous Grand Sequoias.
4.2 on August 02, 2011
Ideal for couples that want to spend a relaxed weekend and visit Sequoia Park.
5 on July 28, 2011
Mauriene offers two beautifully decorated guest rooms only with a warm atmosphere and a wonderful breakfast. Staying here is much nicer than anywhere else in this area.
4.4 on July 27, 2011
Clean, Friendly, Hospitable! I wonderful addition to a dream trip of visiting the Giant Sequoias. Visited 7/11.
5 on July 26, 2011
Tim and Mauriene make you feel so at home, both with the accommodations as well as their kindness and thoughtfulness. We had a wonderful time, enjoying the environment, breakfasts (!), and conversation.
5 on July 22, 2011
With the notable exception of the steepest house driveway I have driven up everything about our visit was perfect. Tim and Mauriene are fabulous as is their home and hospitality. Proof that there are some genuinely great people in the world. We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody
4.2 on July 14, 2011
Homey feel with friendly owners. This Bed & Breakfast offers a quiet getaway, delicious breakfast, and comfortable beds. It also provides easy access to the Sequoia National Park and is not far from places to go white water rafting, boating or horseback riding if your are looking for more adventure.
4.2 on July 13, 2011
The Log House Lodge is a lovely, western-themed B&B, just minutes from the entrance to Sequoia National Park. Mauriene is sweet and kind and a fabulous chef to boot. This is the best choice in the area.
4.4 on June 28, 2011
Staying at The Log House Lodge was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Tim and Mauriene were wonderful hosts who went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Their B & B is very tastefully decorated and the rooms, sitting rooms, front porch, etc... are all very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and was just what was needed to start our days of hiking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We return each year to The Log House because it feels like our second home.
4.2 on June 13, 2011
One of the best B&B's ever! A warm welcome, a beautifully decorated room and incredible food made our stay at the Log House Lodge a great experience.
5 on May 26, 2011
It was very relaxing stay. I slept very well in those beds. Sequoia National Park was very close and the scenery was amazing.
3.6 on May 03, 2011
Very attractive home and surroundings, flowers, and landscaping. The food was outstanding. Mauriene knew the Sequoia Park well and was able to advise us. Very restful stay.
5 on May 01, 2011
This bed and breakfast is truly what a b&b should be. Kind-hearted hospitality, excellent amenities and also a great breakfast. The lodge is a genuine blessing and the folks who run it are top notch.
4.6 on April 13, 2011
For me it's all about the breakfast and on all counts Mouriene nailed it! The 8:30am breakfast was so good and so filling that my wife and I didn't even think about wanting lunch until late afternoon. Tim and Mauriene are really gracious hosts. They gave us everything we needed/wanted but were never intrusive when we just wanted to do our own thing while at the house.
5 on March 28, 2011
This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast, and I must say I was blown away. The room was great. It had a great view, very clean, and very comfortable. The owners went above and beyond my expectation. The breakfast both mornings was great, and I will not hesitate to come back. I would reccomend this bed and breakfast to anyone who is looking for some time away and great scenery.
5 on January 27, 2011
We were welcomed hospitably and given royal treatment. We were looking for a beautiful place to get away with a nice host/hostess, and this even exceeded our expectations.
5 on November 14, 2010
The beauty of the Sequoias was enhanced with the wonderful hospitality found at the Log House Lodge. We will be back! (if only for the chocolate chip cookies!)
3.8 on October 27, 2010
It was our first experience at a bed and breakfast and won't be the last.
5 on October 19, 2010
The food was incredible and the hospitality was even better. Thanks Tim and Mauriene!
5 on October 14, 2010
This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and I must say we were very pleased with the accommodations. When stepping into The Log House Lodge, you feel as though you have taken a trip back in time. From the beautiful country antiques to the intoxicating smell of cinnamon and pine that flows through the open windows, one can't help but feel comfortable and relaxed. Tim and Mauriene warmly welcomed us and provided us with all of the comforts of home. The best part of our stay was the delicious breakfast. It was by far the very best breakfast we had ever had. If you are considering a trip through Three Rivers, CA, make sure to book a night at The Log House Lodge.
4.6 on October 06, 2010
This is my second stay at the Log House Lodge and it was great both times. The decor is very High Sierra which is so pleasing to me because I love the mountains. The hosts make you feel at home right away so it takes no time to settle in and plan your day's activities. With the Sequoia National Park so close, that is generally where you want to spend the day. My husband and I had a wonderful time exploring the park and experiencing certain areas that we hadn't seen in a long time. We had a great time.
4.8 on August 26, 2010
we were so tired of driving around the mountains to king's canyon and sequoia parks, yet we were so amazed by the magnificent trees and breath-taking pinetree-laden canyon.. we thought that was it.. until we arrived at The Log House Lodge! the house was just as beautiful as the parks were, outside and inside.. our room was the High Sierra room and we can see the stars and the stunning slopes from our window! there's even a soft country music playing on an antique radio and old-fashioned night lights. it was so romantic! we rose up early and have to leave at 7am but breakfast will be served at 830am.. however, the host is kind enough to prepared it at 630am! big meal, that is! wish we could stay longer..
5 on August 24, 2010
it was our first time to experience bed and breakfast and it was superb! Everything was great!
4.4 on August 09, 2010
Definitely one of the best B&B's I've ever seen. Perfect in every single detail. Warm and friendly, was like to be at home. I want more places like this!!
5 on July 20, 2010
We stayed here for our 3 year wedding anniversary and had such a wonderfully relaxing stay. The beautiful location, cozy rooms, amazing gourmet breakfasts and gracious hosts made the stay well worth it all. Anyone wanting to enjoy Sequoia National Park and stay at a top notch B&B should come to the Log House Lodge!
5 on July 08, 2010
The most welcoming family I've ever stayed with. Mauriene and Tim Landry could not do enough for us. I felt like I was at home with family. Loved it !!!
5 on June 15, 2010
What an absolutely amazing 'home' to relax in!! We are 'locals' and in the hospitality business ourselves. My husband wanted a 'getaway' to celebrate my birthday and our 1st Anniversary! He found the "pot of gold at the end of the rainbow"! The Log House Lodge is absolutely amazing! From the decor inside and out, the landscaping, the food, the views, all the way to Tim and Mauriene...every aspect is amazing! You can feel the love when you enter! The Lodge has all the modern amenities of todays world but you feel like stepped back in time and staying with friends in their mountain cabin! It really is a Log home!! It is built out of Lincoln Logs!! LOL!! Breakfast was incredible!! Mauriene is quite the cook!! Crepes made from scratch, with her own special cream cheese mixture and fruit compote, her special Orange Juice, and pepper bacon smells filled the house!! We opened the door from our room upstairs and our mouth's were watering!! We practically ran down the stairs!! Breakfast was served "sit down" style with our plates prepared so we could all eat together like a family!! We talked over breakfast and got a chance to learn about the other couple that was there from Germany and about how Tim and Mauriene came to have this wonderful place!! Every room at the Lodge is very cozy and comfortable!! Breathtaking views from the windows and the decks all the way around the lodge!! From off the front deck we watched the sunset over the mountains and watched it rise from the back deck!!! We can't say enough about the lodge!! We were literally 5 minutes from our home on the other side of the river..but we felt like we were a million miles from home!! We will definitely be back to stay!! Tim and Mauriene....You're the best!! Thank you for being a part of my birthday and our 1st anniversary celebration!!! Thank you for your friendship!! God had truly blessed you and you can feel His presence in your home!! In his Love, Steve and Lori Brooks
5 on June 10, 2010
This has got to be one the cleanest,most beautiful B+B's we've ever stayed in, having travelled extensively in South Africa and Europe. Mauriene is such a kind, caring hostess and cooks the BEST ever breakfasts (you won't need to eat the rest of the day!) It truly felt like "coming home" to loveliness and comfort after a day out amongst the big trees... We'll be back.
5 on June 05, 2010
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays at this bed and breakfast. It is a really beautiful place in a really beautiful setting. The innkeepers are wonderfully hospitable and go out of their way to make your stay special...from preparing first class gourmet breakfasts (no exaggeration here) to showing movies on their big screen, to surprising us with after dinner treats! You must stay here! We have returned year after year and continue to be amazed by this place.
5 on June 01, 2010
Amazing room, awesome breakfast, and super warm atmosphere. It was like be at home. I definitely recommend this B&B to everyone!
5 on May 05, 2010
This B&B was a wonderful home away from home. Tim & Mauriene are very gracious hosts and very accommodating. The breakfasts were very tasty and filling, which was the perfect start to our days of hiking. I would highly recommend The Log House Lodge.
5 on April 11, 2010
We really enjoyed our stay at the Log House Lodge. It has a wonderful mountain atmosphere with many cute details and is very clean. The breakfast was delicious!!! The innkeepers are super friendly and very helpful with suggestions and directions for Sequoia National Park. We would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away to the mountains without having to “rough it”.
4.8 on February 19, 2010
The Log House Lodge was a fantastic getaway for my husband and me. After being treated like royalty at gourmet breakfasts of banana nut pancakes and crab quiche, we enjoyed Sequoia National Park at a gorgeous time of year. We went sledding on our first day and on the third we hiked the ladybug trail up the Kaweah River through a gorgeous mountain pass of snow-capped peaks and a cascading waterfall. The temperatures were in the sixties and the lush vegetation beneath the misty mountains was like a little piece of heaven. Thank you for introducing us to your world.
5 on January 24, 2010
Incredible two-day vacation, mauriene and tim are exceptional hosts, mauriene makes the best breakfast. and the house is so cozy and welcoming, it was incredible! the great theater-like atmosphere was fantastic, it was so much fun we are going to be coming back again and again!
4.8 on November 23, 2009
We had a fantastic getaway weekend thanks to the Log House Lodge. The room was beautiful and spacious and the breakfasts were a real treat. The hosts, Tim & Mauriene were exceptionally hospitable, even though one of them was not feeling well through the weekend; they were such gracious hosts they even found another first-class cook to prepare and serve breakfast. This was such a wonderful place to unwind and relax. It's so close to Sequoia National Park that in a matter of minutes you're on the road enjoying the sights. Can't say enough about this place!!
3.6 on October 29, 2009
The setting of the Inn was fantastic. Very friendly owner. Great breakfast.
5 on October 06, 2009
We had a great time during our stay. We enjoyed beautiful views, mountain sunsets, and old movies on a big screen in the same moment. They were so hospitable and we had great conversation around the breakfast table!
5 on October 01, 2009
We stayed at the Log House Lodge for part of our honeymoon and had a great time. Mauriene and Tim were very welcoming and hospitable. The breakfasts were better than any restaurant and prepared us for our jaunts into Sequoia National Park
5 on August 26, 2009
This is our second time staying at the Log House Lodge, and things could not have been better. The warm hospitality, cozy comforts, incredible breakfasts, and peaceful surroundings have made for a relaxing and refreshing way for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary!
5 on August 11, 2009
Staying at the inn is an absolute delight and treat. The innkeepers have gone to great lengths to ensure that their guests have an unforgetable stay. Each room is meticulously clean and beautifully decorated. The beds are extremely comfotable and the linens are fresh and soft. We slept so well and were awakened to the sounds and smells of breakfast cooking (and not just any breakfast...a homemade gourmet breakfast). You must stay here. You won't regret it and you'll never forget it!
5 on August 05, 2009
The LHL is a small, extremely comfortable and very clean B&B. Mauriene was a great source of information about the area and did everything she could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Lovely setting.
5 on June 18, 2009
We had never stayed at a B&B and had no idea what to expect. Not only were we pleased, but now we cannot imagine staying in a hotel! We were amazed!!!
5 on June 09, 2009
The breakfast was delicious! Warmest atmosphere ever!
5 on June 09, 2009
I can highly recommend this B&B. The roooms are gorgeous. Mauriene and Tim are friendly, courteous and make you feel like you are at home. The breakfast is incredible good and if you need any information where to go you get any assist you need. Thanks a lot for your nice and warm welcom. If we ever come back to Three Rivers we will come again Martin and Conny from Germany
4.8 on June 03, 2009
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful B&B. The breakfast was amazing, very nice hosts, clean rooms, and a quiet atmosphere.
4.8 on June 02, 2009
Wonderful small B&B in beautiful mountain setting. Very close to Sequoia N.P. Gracious hosts.
4.8 on April 23, 2009
I always love to book in a B&B. This one is in my top 5 as number 1. We have stayed in Hawaii, Arizona, New Mexico and California. Tim and Mauriene are the best. A fantastic and delicious breakfast each morning. The ambiance of their home will just put you at ease and relax you the whole time you are there. We would like to go back and plan on telling all our friends about this wonderful find. The area is next to one of our most beautiful Sequoia and Kings Canyon parks. If you are there during the spring time, you will be able to smell the orange orchards in full bloom, ahhhh.
4.8 on January 14, 2009
warm and friendly owners. beautiful setting. a time to relax and getaway from stress
5 on November 25, 2008
A charming home away from home nestled in a natural sanctuary. Enjoy the warm hospitality and the sumptuous breakfast and leave all of your worries behind!
4.8 on September 05, 2008
Two very comfortable rooms. Each room has its own sink, though there is one shared bathroom between the rooms. Excellent breakfast, and wonderful hosts. There is a little dog who is friendly, but not overly-friendly. Good WiFi, but poor cell phone reception at location. Nice views of the foothills, easy driving distance from the Big Trees. Convenient options for lunch/dinner not too far away in town. Would recommend it, and hope to return!
5 on August 05, 2008
This cabin is at the perfect location to visit Sequoia National Park and the rivers. The cabin is homey and the breakfast is fantatic. We slept very well in our room overlooking the valley. Not having your own bathroom is the only down side.
5 on August 03, 2008
This was our first visit to the Log House Lodge and we hope it won't be our last. The Landry's have gone extra lengths to ensure their B&B is welcoming and refreshing. Your sleep will be sweet in the plush beds. Your breath will be taken away by the view of the Milky-way. And the hummingbirds on the patio will set your soul at ease. We can't forget to mention the gourmet breakfasts made with love and skill by the hosts. "Above and Beyond" - that sums up our stay.
5 on July 30, 2008
Staying at the Log House was like getting away from real life, but stepping in the reality of cozy, homey,lodge living. And the personal, warmth was like being with family.
5 on July 24, 2008
Our hostess, Maurine, was always sweet and hospitable - she knew our goal was to spend time together and she helped us do that with grace. The food was a wonderful treat and we had a great time watching movies in the movie room - the area is beautiful.
5 on July 15, 2008
The owners were wonderful, and really made you feel welcome. from resting in the den, to hiking in Sequoia National Park, it was wonderful. Mauriene was a great cook also. We plan to go back for sure.
5 on July 12, 2008
This place is ABSOLUTELY wonderful. You will leave wishing you could stay longer! The house is a beautiful cabin, the rooms large and spacious, and the views from the wrap around deck are breath-taking. The breakfast is phenomenal. They hosts really make you feel at home and comfortable. It is a great getaway spot for couples or small groups of travelers. It is only a short 10 minute drive from Sequoia, and on the drive you notice that you are staying in one of the nicest lodges outside of Sequoia. There is no where else I would rather stay when I go to Sequoia than here.
4.6 on June 24, 2008
Mauriene was a very gracious and generous hostess and definitely has the gift of hospitality. We enjoyed her company and the beautiful Sequoias.
5 on June 20, 2008
My wife and I had a wonderful weekend at the Log House. The food was amazing, the beds were comfortable, and the view from the deck was majestic and calming. I could literally sit out there all day and read a book or just listen to music. What is more, the conversation and fellowship to be had is such a comfort to the soul, and the classic movies played nightly are a fun and relaxing treat. We honestly have no negative comments about this place, and would love to return as soon as the opportunity affords.
5 on June 19, 2008
My wife and I were overwhelmed with the beauty and comfort of this B&B. Perhaps the best part of the weekend was getting to know Tim and Mauriene, the owners. They were abundantly gracious and fun to be with. And the breakfasts were amazing! We look forward to visiting again in the future.
5 on June 18, 2008
The breakfast was unique, wonderful and plentiful. Quaint and tastefully decorated rooms, with great attention to detail. Activities provided include huge screen movies, games, grogeous views and easy access to Three Rivers and Seqoia National Park. Sits down the street from the River view restaurant, where you can enjoy a casual dinner on the river. Maureen Landry is skilled in hospitality and knowledgable about the area (good recommendations). Excellent getway!
4.8 on June 17, 2008
we were so pleased with the beautiful , relaxing, setting and the kind, hospitable innkeeper.if you are looking for a quiet retreat from a busy, hectic,stressful time, then this is the place for you!
5 on June 09, 2008
This is a beautifully situated and decorated lodge that is like no other. Wonderful accomodations, breathtaking views, outstanding hospitality, and delicious meals were ours. We highly reccommend this B&B!
5 on June 05, 2008
This is an unusual B&B! Not only is the location perfect for launching into the Sequoias as we did... but everything about the accommodation was amazing. Tim and Mauriene have paid attention to detail in such a way that wherever your eyes rest... there's something interesting to look at! The same attention goes into the food.. and Mauriene is one fabulous cook! We felt welcome and comfortable in every way... and VERY reluctant to leave! "A la prochaine!" :-)
4.6 on June 04, 2008
We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at The Log House Lodge. Everything about our trip was great--lovely hosts, charming home, cozy room (we stayed in the High Sierra room), and awesome setting at the gateway to the Sequoia National Park. Be sure to spend a day up at the Giant Sequoias, enjoy reading or talking on the deck in the mornings, and of course, don't miss Mauriene's awesome breakfasts. Tim and Mauriene have placed much thought into every detail of their home. We highly recommend this B&B for anyone desiring a relaxing, low-stress getaway!
5 on May 13, 2008
Everything about this place was great-- the views, the rooms, the host, the hospitatlity, the food, the porch and the peace and quiet. What a fabulous place to relax and unwind. Truly a wonderful stay- feels like coming home!
5 on April 10, 2008
It was such a treat to get away from the rat race and really relax... the old fashion way... beautiful surroundings, wonderfully charming lodge and equally charming and gracious innkeepers. My kids LOVED the old tire swing - I loved sitting on the porch hearing them laugh... oh and the National Park nearby is pretty cool too!
4.8 on April 08, 2008
We had the opportunity to stay here during our last visit to the US. What an incredible location! If you like peace and quiet and if you like hiking and exploring nature's treasures, you couldn't ask for a better starting point. Food is great, rooms are comfortable and charming, and it really does feel like a trip back in time. Have yourself a cup of tea while sitting on the deck and look around you.. it's amazing! Greetings from the Verhelst family (Belgium)
