Dad and two daughters x-country trip
Started our ten day cross country trip out of LA with a first stop in Sequoia. Initially, I was disappointed that I couldn't get a room in one of the park's lodges but after reading the reviews decided on Silver City Mountain Resort (SCMR). When we finished our fantastic trip and settled back home, we all agreed our favorite memory was from our day and a half at SCMR. Food was surprisingly excellent, our cabin was comfortable, showers were hot and the hikes our wonderful check-in attendant Sarah suggested were some of the best I've ever been on anywhere. Seeing acres of wildflower, pristine mountain lakes and abandoned sliver mines at 9,000 feet, and seeing no more than four other people, some marmots and deer along the way, made this a very special stop. Thanks to everyone at SCMR and my hope is this review doesn't send too many people to your beautiful little secret. If you can't appreciate what they have there then please don't go. To make you earn it there is a bit of a drive. Just concentrate for 25 miles or so and try to do it in the daytime.

My wife and I last visited Silver City 10 years ago. The new owners spent some money upgrading the bathrooms and shower facilities. Our historic cabin was as expected: rustic. It took a few minutes to figure out the operation of the gas lamps.

Stunning setting; friendly staff
If you're planning a trip to Sequoia National Park, this is the place to stay. Unless you're a hard-core-roughing-it-is-best kind of person, this lovely little gem provides just the right amount of rustic and comfort. Each of the cabins has its own deck with Adirondack chairs if you would like a place to sit and enjoy your surroundings. A fire pit is also provided for evening chats around the campfire or making s'mores. The restaurant is not fancy, but the food (mostly sandwiches and salads) is fresh and delicious. And every meal (even breakfast) is not complete without a slice of their homemade pie. The best feature of this resort is its proximity to some of the most jaw-dropping scenery in the United States. Multicolored wildflowers were abundant; waterfalls cut through lush mountainsides, giant redwood trees brushed the vibrantly blue sky. Trailheads leading to hiking routes for beginners through experts sprouted from multiple locations near the resort. The temperatures remained relatively cool compared to lower elevations. Overall, a relaxing and enjoyable break!

We stayed in 2 different cabins throughout our 3 night stay and had a blast. We were blown away by the kind and accommodating staff, the adorable and comfortable cabins, the majestic beauty and serenity of the setting and the pie at the restaurant! Highly recommended. Be prepared to be a little nauseous on the 45 minute drive on the windy road to the cabins, but totally worth it!

Vacation of a lifetime! Franklin Pass cabin was beautiful, staff was very friendly and accommodating, food from the restaurant was delicious. The overall atmosphere of the resort property is very relaxing and inviting. Hope to be able to visit there again. We went on some beautiful hikes with absolutely no crowds.
The road to get there is a handful, no doubt. We were told to bring charcoal for the grill but ours was propane. I was not expecting a fridge so we had purchased a cooler that wasn't necessary. So just a couple little things that could be tweaked but all in all, definitely recommend!!
