My family just returned from a 4 night stay and really enjoyed our experience. I was skeptical that we could travel during a pandemic and thoroughly enjoy ourselves, but it was one of our best trips ever.We felt very safe with the protocols in place with staff, required masks and no housekeeping visits to the room during the stay. Especially right now, having the meals available was so beneficial as there is very little food options open in the parks. The food is being served cafeteria style now vs buffet and also nice that there is a bar for the parents! There is so much to do here. Our kids (ages 8 and 5) loved the pool, trampoline, and evening s'mores. We had a great time on the lake using the paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes and enjoyed the Friday night Bingo game. There are activities each day for kids such as arts/crafts, archery, and air rifles. It was such a great in between spot to also explore both parks. We would love to return!

Response from Tricia Dally, Owner at Montecito Sequoia Lodge & Summer Family Camp
Responded 25 Nov 2020
Dear mere811, Thanks you so much for your review and letting other guests know about our safety protocols during Covid. We were very fortunate to work with a long-term guest who is an infectious disease doctor and in charge of covid protocols at her California hospital. She reviewed our protocols and made an onsite visit before we opened for summer to make sure we were following the latest CDC and California State guidance. We were also blessed to have many of our other guests and medical professionals review and experience our protocols who gave us similar feedback. This was very gratifying , as we invested a lot of expense and thought in reworking our business from top to bottom to keep our staff and guests safe. So far so good! We hope you return again next summer mere811, when we feel we will be better able to truly deliver the great Montecito experience as life will hopefully be more back to normal! Thank you again for taking the time to share your visit! We appreciate your kind words and support! Warmly, T. Dally Owner Family Montecito Sequoia Lodge & Summer Family Camp

Montecito is the only place that we have kept as a recurring family tradition for 8 years. We like to travel, get out in nature, do fun stuff and relax when we vacation, so Montecito has been able to meet all those needs.

The staff and counselors are AWESOME! They really keep the kids learning and exploring new activities. They offer arts and crafts, painting, mountain biking, stand up paddle boards, paints ball, swimming at the lake or the pool, jacuzzi... you name it!

There’s so much to do, or not do. My wife and I would just chill and read some days and other days she would do a hike while I went on a mountain bike ride with Neptune and the guys.

We have also used the camp as a base for day trips into kings canyon and sequoia NP. Buck rock, Hume lake, Moro rock, crystal cave, Zumwalt meadows, general Sherman / Grant trees are all relatively close to camp too.

It’s great to get back from a hike, shower up, grab a glass of wine and have a meal ready to go when you get back.

I would highly recommend Montecito even if you can’t stay during the family or adventure camps. Hope this review helps.

We stayed here for three nights in September 2019, some of the rooms/cabins have shared bathrooms but ours had a private bath, which was big and functional with plenty of hot water, nice toiletries and big squishy towels. The room had a kingsize bed and two bunkbeds, a coffeemaker and plenty of room for storing clothes etc. The main lodge was a wonderful experience, table football, table tennis, board games, books, television (although I never saw it being used) and a bar which hosted a free wine and cheese tasting every evening. The food was plentiful and freshly prepared each day, three meals to which you could help yourself, and if you were hiking you could help yourself to make up a lunch. The views were awesome - enough said. Theres a swimming pool, and a hot tub. Each night a bonfire with s'mores for the kids. I believe in high season they have quizzes and party games but not while we were there. The staff were without exception helpful and charming. All in all it brought back memories of a simpler time, happy memories. It felt safe. Yes it was a bit 'tired' after the summer months but it was none the less charming and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

We were not sure what to expect, we had a vision of Alan Sherman’s ‘ Camp Granada’ lol. (You have to be our age)
Explored the grounds could have used the canoes if we wanted. Pool closed unfortunately. Played table tennis while there was no one around. Something we haven’t done for years. Room was good , clean, quiet fridge. Large bathroom. Also bunk beds if you had kids. China cups yay!
Had a problem with heating and hot water it was sorted immediately. There was a fan heater in room anyway.
The food was really good, a lot of choice, no fries, proper meals. We were able to make a packed lunch up for the day. We went to the wine and cheese at 5 pm and met lots of interesting people and carried on to dine with them. Something we wouldn’t normally do. Once again no plastic , proper cutlery and plates, at last someone is being sensible.
WiFi is fine in main area. Unfortunately people were plugged in to power at seating area by tv, my husband would have liked to have watched tv.
Go over to the car park area and look at the stars!
A great experience, good to meet other travellers, would recommend a stay here if you can live without tv for a couple of nights

We stayed in the Red Fir Lodge, at the Resort, for 11 nights in September. Can’t say enough about how wonderful our stay was. Buffet food is delicious, menu changes daily, Happy Hour nightly, roomy accommodations, gorgeous view of the mountains from the deck, friendly/helpful staff, ability to pack a lunch to go, s’mores at the campfire nightly, children’s play area, picturesque lake, pool, large fireplace / sitting area at end of dining room, etc. Made new friends while dining with other guests! Great location for reaching highlights of Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. We were unable to get cell service but were able to use their WiFi in the Main Lodge. Must be able to climb 14 steps to get to the rooms on the 2nd floor of this Lodge. Highly recommended!
