Alta Sierra

lodginglodging reservations in Alta Sierra

This Southern Sierra cabin community is set amongst tall cedars & minimal sunlight. A canopy of vegetation is above & this is when you know you are not in Kernville anymore. This place has a magical & majestic feel with granite outcroppings & steep manzanita hills with big boulders. Wildfire danger is every year here. A gorgeous rural restaurant serves locals & tourists, but they do get busy, so be patient. Snowy winters are common.
