Reset in Yosemite.

Yosemite is the perfect place to hit the reset button before the holiday season is upon us. Fall is one of 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.

Our friendly and knowledgeable 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 one of our saltwater hot tubs is a guest favorite!  You can also enjoy our many daily activities, like California craft beer tasting or our nightly tradition of roasting s’more by the outdoor fire.

If you really want to make the most of your getaway, you can always take advantage of our Wellness offerings available on property. With small group yoga classes and a range of therapeutic massages, you’ll be sure to return from your Yosemite adventure refreshed and inspired.
