Yosemite Health and Wellness Program

2021 Travelers' Choice Tripadvisor

Funny enough, by simply visiting Yosemite and having Rush Creek Lodge & Spa as your base camp, you’ll find you’ve happened along one of the best wellness retreats anyone could hope for.

That said, we know not everyone likes to throw caution to the wind when you’re feeling like it’s time for a healing vacation.

Our caring and knowledgeable Wellness Team is here to help, starting with 3 essentials for a fulfilling wellness vacation, that we’re happy to customize to your liking.

3 Essentials For A Fulfilling Wellness Vacation:

#1 – A Warm Rush Creek Welcome

Upon arrival, you’ll be struck by the lodge’s atmosphere that our guests call “laid back luxury” that will immediately relax and inspire you.

Explore the lodge, pool area and hot tubs, or local nature trails.

If you’re not quite ready for quiet time just yet, you can head to the Tavern and order our tasty “Sake Thyme” signature cocktail that gets its gorgeous lavender hue from Butterfly Pea Flower.  Enjoy your cocktail in the Tavern while getting to know fellow Yosemite enthusiasts, or take your drink back to your room to savor on your balcony and soak up nature’s light show.

Prepare to be amazed as millions of stars fill the night sky.

You’ll get a good night’s sleep in the fresh mountain air, in a room free of distractions, designed for your warmth and comfort.  Our rooms are tastefully appointed with custom artwork and furnishings, Alexa smart speakers, games and books (instead of TV’s), and feature private balconies with stunning views of the surrounding nature.

#2 – An Epic Day Exploring Yosemite National Park

The power of Yosemite to help us feel healthy and well is not easy to describe, but you’ll feel it when you get there.

Join one of our friendly and knowledgeable professional guides on one of our epic Yosemite adventures. We highly recommend one of these two options:

Option 1 – Wonders of Yosemite Hike and Tour
One of the classic Yosemite tours, this is a full day’s adventure to see Yosemite’s icons – Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Fall, Half Dome, El Capitan, Tunnel View –  plus a 3-mile hike among Giant Sequoias.

Option 2 – Yosemite Valley Explorer Tour
Come to explore the hidden trails of Yosemite Valley! Our gentle to moderate 4 to 5-mile hike (or snowshoe) winds around many of Yosemite’s iconic wonders and provides splendid views of seasonal creeks, meadows, and boulders with memorable views of Yosemite’s iconic sights!

**Our tours include transportation, naturalist guide, snowshoe rental if needed, lunch voucher for use in our General Store. Additional $20 park admission fee per adult (waived for Yosemite Annual Pass or America the Beautiful Pass holders).

#3 – A Yosemite Inspired Spa Journey

Your Yosemite health and wellness program comes full circle with some well-deserved pampering and relaxation on one of our Yosemite-inspired Spa journeys.

For the Yosemite-inspired Spa portion of your journey, reach out to our Spa directly at (209)379-2425 or email spa@rushcreeklodge.com so the Wellness Team can help you choose the ideal option for you from relaxation, rejuvenation and healing.

We’ll supply you with the appropriate essential oils and an aromatherapy cloth, and you’ll choose from a variety of intention stones to carry with you while you journey through the Spa amenities to  achieve your desired outcome.  Our hope is that when you take your essential oils and intention stones home, you will carry your new found health and wellness practices into your home routine and feel better for it.
