14.8 miles from Lake Success
Located in the Sequoia National Forest, Nara Lodge is a 2,262 sq ft home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a game room that includes a pool table, ping pong table, record player, and records. There are TVs in every room, central heat in the main cabin, new furnishings, plenty of wildlife, and enough beds to comfortably accommodate 11. We are located less than a mile from the Camp Nelson Meadow, the Camp Nelson General Store, Pierpoint Bar & Grill, the Camp Nelson Conservancy, and Nelson Falls RV Park.
Nara Lodge is named after the city of Nara, Japan and just like in Nara, Japan we consider the deer here to be sacred. They are free to roam the grounds and they take full advantage of that opportunity. It is not unusual to wake up to deer in the yard or to go to bed with them in the yard. We have plenty of wildlife as the forest is our backyard. There is a deck attached in the front of the house that faces Slate Mountain and one in the back that will let you escape into nature. There is a propane fire pit on the deck for your use. In addition to the deck, there's plenty of flat ground around the property to enjoy outdoor activities, nature at its best, and spectacular views of Slate Mountain.
All rooms are located a half floor up and the front entry is up one flight of stairs. The master bedroom, the “Slate Room,” has a king bed and a ¾ bath attached. Next to the master bedroom is the “Bear Room” which has three twin beds. The “Deer Room” is the third room which has a queen bed and faces the side yard the deer use daily. The living room has a lounge couch that turns into a full size bed and the “Game Room” has a large sectional with a full size pullout bed. The second bathroom is a ¾ bath, has a washer and dryer, is located on the ground level, and has a door leading directly outside. The bathrooms are stocked with hand soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, towels, and washrags. All of the bedrooms have TVs with YouTubeTV, Hulu, and Netflix. Streaming services are also available on the living room and game room TVs.
The dining room has seating for 8 with an expandable table that seats up to 10. There are place settings and utensils for 8 or for 12 upon request. In addition, the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, a blender, mixing bowls, baking dishes, cookie sheets, cooking utensils, a microwave, cutting boards, knives, a toaster, and a Keurig coffee maker that makes single cups and/or pots of coffee.
We hope you love and enjoy our new cabin as much as we do!
