Take a Yosemite break between the holidays!

The Holiday season is a wonderful time of year, but let’s face it, things sure can get a bit hectic sometimes. We think it’s OK to treat yourself to a little getaway between the holidays to relax and recharge with us up in Yosemite.  Gorgeous scenery, crisp clear days, stunning sunsets and warm cozy fires every night. You’ll love it!

Conveniently located at the Highway 120 West entrance to Yosemite National Park, Rush Creek Lodge is just minutes away from two Giant Sequoia Groves and the lesser-traveled Hetch Hetchy region of the Park.  So your Holiday Breakaway can include anything from an invigorating hike (or snowshoe) among Giant Sequoias or Yosemite’s stunning waterfalls, or simply a classic mountain lodge getaway complete with massage treatments, great meals, and hot tub sunsets.

Reset in Yosemite

Yosemite is the perfect place to hit the reset button in between the holidays. Fall and Winter are the most peaceful times of year in Yosemite. You can often feel like you have the park all to yourself. With both the Merced and Tuolumne Groves of Giant Sequoias just a few minutes’ drive from the lodge, it’s easy to find serenity and peace of mind on any trail.  Or visit the lesser-traveled section of Yosemite National Park, Hetch Hetchy, to hike along the reservoir to Wapama Falls to drink in more of nature’s refreshing qualities.

And of course, our friendly Recreation team is here to help you find the way. Whether you’d like to explore on your own or try one of our entertaining and informative professionally guided adventures, our team is ready to help. Consider us your backstage pass to Yosemite!

Relax at Rush Creek

Take it easy by the fire in our cozy Guest Lounge, play around in our Game Room, or hang out and keep an eye on sports on the big screens in Rush Creek’s Tavern.

Our heated saltwater pool and hot tubs are open year-round unless of course, Mother Nature tells us otherwise.  Watching the sunset or stargazing from the comfort of our saltwater hot tub is a guest favorite!  We’ve also got daily activities for you, including our nightly tradition of roasting s’more by the outdoor fire.

If you’re looking to make the most of your Holiday Breakaway, you can always take advantage of our Wellness offerings available on property. With small group yoga classes and therapeutic massages, you’ll be sure to return from your Yosemite Holiday Breakaway refreshed and ready for whatever the season may throw at you.
