Meetings, Retreats & Events
Sometimes to think outside of the box you have to get outside of the city! Just a few hours from the San Francisco Bay Area you can unplug, reconnect, and re-energize groups ranging from 25 to 250 people. Our variety of indoor and outdoor options work wonders for everything from professional meetings to large social gatherings.
Mission Partner Program
Like our sister property, the Evergreen Lodge, Rush Creek is a social enterprise that operates a first class resort while running a behind-the-scenes employment program serving urban youth. We’re extending our impact by providing mission-based organizations access to our resort at highly reduced rates.
Meet Our Groups & Events Manager
The first time Linda Serio experienced Yosemite as a child, she fell in love with the steep, granite cliffs and towering pines. It ignited a passion for the outdoors, and the longer she lived in Los Angeles as an adult, the louder she heard the mountains calling.
In the fall of 2016 Linda visited Rush Creek Lodge for the first time, and was instantly inspired to make a bold career shift and stay permanently!
Linda brings with her over 10 years of combined experience in event planning, sales, hospitality and development. She studied Speech Communications at Southern California’s University of La Verne, and proceeded to work in grassroots environments, managing events and corporate relationships.
Naturally, Linda spends her free time adventuring through the trails, taverns and towns of Tuolumne County, and dreams of one day opening a B&B, preferably with a few goats and piggies running around.
“I feel incredibly lucky, to live in my own personal paradise and professionally share the magic of this place with others. Whether it’s to celebrate beautiful commitments to each other, or have a retreat that redefines your fourth quarter, I can’t imagine a better place to unplug, and really connect. Come and see for yourself!”
