ABOUT FIVESPOT

Quiet, cozy, inspiring, art-filled: fivespot cabin is a relaxing destination for a week or weekend, perfect for couples, friends, or small families. It's not a big place, only 600 square feet with one bedroom, but it's the right size for a great time together, and provides a close-by home base for hiking Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park's spectacular trails. 

Fivespot is designed for comfort and convenience: a covered stone patio, gas bbq, kitchen with all the necessary accessories, and lots of outdoor space means you can cook and dine inside or out. In one large bedroom you'll enjoy the queen bed, and there's a loft bed (with an extra twin mattress underneath). Use the sofabed in the living room to accommodate a larger family. The sauna and outdoor shower, claw-foot bathtub, fireplace, and vintage books and games set the stage for restful after-hike evenings.

Feeling creative? Add something to the chalkboard wall, wander the hilltop behind the cabin, sketch the surrounding foothills. Several painters and writers have already used fivespot as a personal artistic retreat—why not you?
