We are "Pixie's Place Animal Sanctuary & Hospice", a non-profit 501.(c)(3) Trust for the Animals who live here.
We also offer a Quantum Healing Shamanic Retreat, which is available to city dwellers through: CrystalSoundQuantumHealing.com.
We are located at the entrance to Sequoia Nat'l Park/Lake Kaweah, in the village of Three Rivers, CA (Central Cali; 3 hours NE of L.A., between Bakersfield (1 hour and 40 min away) and Fresno (1 hour and 10 min away); 30 min. above Visalia).
(IGNORE GPS FROM SO CAL IF IT TELLS YOU TO TAKE THE 5 TO THE 99 TO THE 65.
CORRECT DIRECTIONS ARE: 5 TO THE 99 TO 198/VISALIA AND TAKE IT STRAIGHT UP THE HILL PAST THE LAKE. AS YOU ENTER THREE RIVERS, THE 198 BECOMES 198/SIERRA DR. THIS WILL TAKE YOU RIGHT TO OUR STREET JUST AFTER YOU ENTER 3R).
In addition to the Shamanic Retreat, we offer a camping spot down in a lower area on the 3/4 of an acre property, along with this The main chalet sits above, with a corral and Sanctuary Reading shed in between. The South Fork of the Kaweah River is at the back of the property with a very "sweet" swimming hole to enjoy as long as the water is flowing down the river as it is seasonal depending on drought conditions. However, June 2018 it is perfect!
This listing offers: 1956 11 ft Aluminum "Rainbow" Trailer available for 2 people, with access to the Chalet toilet. Please note: ONLY ONE-TWO people.
The quaint trailer sits within a permaculture garden at the front of the property, closer to the road; however it is very private, and subdued.
There may be a retreat being held or not; if there is a retreat, we will have a drum circle if it's a Friday evening; Saturday evening we screen the New Media/Experimental film I made which screened last November in London at Cinema Magic. The animals of Pixie's Place were actors in the film, along with many of the scenes filmed here.
You are welcome to join us, if you'd like:)
Everything works a little bit like a bed and breakfast; a non pretentious environment that supports the animals, self healing; and the enjoyment of sharing this sacred spot I have created.
There is a BBQ grill available for campers to use, along with a fire pit by the river.
We are a 420 friendly, artist/writer/shamanic/hipcamper retreat.
Retreat won't be going until late August.
Feel free to invest in the vegetable garden; help yourself to any available fruit, as well as the abundant fresh Rosemary & Lavender.
Your bookings support the animals whom you can interact with.
We have "Pixie Emelia Aurora" aka "Pea" our mascot; a 10 year old Nubian goat. Siddartha Cloudwalker a Nigerian Dwarf, along with his son, Sage Lyrid Ray, born here on Earth Day 2012!
There are many cats, who each have their stories of how they found their way to Pixie's Place, including bad boy mustang "Hermes Inyo Ray" who is down the street and loves meeting new people! We take on who we can; assuring all creatures a place they can live, be loved and accepted for their "issues" until the cross the rainbow bridge xo

The vibe at Vintage Rainbow Garden
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We absolutely loved our stay at Wendi's place! We felt welcomed and cared for from the moment we pulled into her driveway.
Wendi gave us a tour of the well curated and comfortable vintage trailer, her gorgeous property, and beautiful A-Frame home.
The trailer is nestled between the backside of Wendi's A-Frame and lots of greenery creating a great private area. It was +100 degrees when we visited so the trailer was warm as expected, but the provided fan which kept us cool throughout the night.
Highlights: Private river access and soaking pools right on the property, shared fire pit and picnic area for trailer & tent campers, friendly goats and cats, and the fact the property is only a short 5 minute drive into town where there is great coffee, food, and grocery.
The south entrance to Sequoia/Kings Canyon is also a short ~10 minute drive away! Great basecamp for exploring the park. I'll definitely be back.
Wendi is so warm and welcoming with an energy that draws you in! She understands the need to escape into the woods and facilitates that by opening up her property and adorable vintage trailer for guests to stay. It was clean with personable touches and we hope to come back soon!
I planned a trip up here to camp but instead received a spiritual retreat that I will always remember and be thankful for! Wendi is an incredible person and we instantaneously connected. This was my first solo trip and I was NEVER bored. Anytime I left Wendi's to enter Sequoia National Park, after three hours I just wanted to come back here. The goats brought so much joy to me and hearing the roosters was awesome. But they only woke me up the first morning at 7:30 so it was never an annoyance. Every morning there was a huge gang of turkey vultures that circled over the property or hung out in the trees. IT WAS AWESOME.
My favorite spot was the separate little air conditioned cabin reading room. I spent a lot of time in there reading Wendi's books and writing.
I also spent a lot of time talking with Wendi and can say that she is a Mother Hen soul. I just adore her and the conversations were illuminating. And she always gave me my privacy too, she was never invasive of that.
The store is one right turn off the road (SO CLOSE) and Seq. Nat. Park is just 14 min. away. To Big Trees Trail/ Giant Forrest it is 1 hr. away.
I planned for 3 nights and even ended up staying an extra one! I can't wait to go back and I have already recommended this wonderful place to all of my loved ones.
A+, 10/10, would recommend!!
Wendi is an amazing host and wonderful human!! My wife and I stayed with her for our wedding anniversary and we felt comfortable from the beginning. Wendi was extremely accommodating and her home is magical and calming. She definitely made our anniversary that much more special, and we will never forget the experience.
Stayed with Wendi and her critters for 4 nights and had such a great time. It was just what I needed to unwind, recharge and ground from a long stretch of work. The camper was really cozy, like a little cave and super cute and clean inside. The friendly cats came and visited which I loved!! The private garden outside the camper was charming and I enjoyed having morning tea under the trees. The whole property is super with little nooks to hang out and a great library to hang out in. The goats are the cutest! Wendi is a hoot and an incredible healer (if you feel like a session) really enjoyed our conversations and her vibrant energy.
Only thing I would recommend is ear plugs as there is a rooster who likes to talk...early. If you are a hippy at heart you will love this place... Its a great retreat and close to the park and town for exploring.
