What Guests Say About Rio Sierra

“What a tranquil place to stay! Wonderful hospitality, beautiful views and great breakfast by the river! Thank you so much Mars for a relaxing week end.”
Mary Anne R.

“This place is an absolute gem. The property feels very private and our hostess thought of absolutely everything, right down to s'mores at the campfire. I'll definitely be making another longer stay here in the future. This beats out the big resorts any day of the week.”
Cynde Harbin K.

“A jewel in the foothills of Sequoia National Park. Rio Sierra Riverhouse exudes charm and it really does have it’s own river frontage & Beach. After hours up in the mountains it is fabulous to relax in the sun at the end of the day by the waterside. The room is comfortable and has everything we need. Highly recommend this peaceful part of the world.”
