When To Go

The best time to visit Yosemite is in the Spring or Fall, when the weather is mild and the crowds are a bit lighter. Although most of the year the park is pretty crowded.

The Accommodations

Our cabin was very cute and comfortable, nothing fancy but it did have an indoor fireplace which was a huge plus! There’s nothing like relaxing next to a crackling fire after an active day. It was quiet at night and we slept soundly with no light pollution.

There are also large outdoor fire pits you can huddle up to at night, perfect for a glass of wine and some good conversation after a long day hiking.

There are several outdoor fire pits at Tenaya you can sit by at night under the stars

What I loved most of all about this hotel was the proximity to the Yosemite Valley. Most hotels are far outside the park, but Tenaya is only about a 30min drive to the Valley, where a majority of the activities begin. Take a weekend trip here to marvel at the stunning granite mountains and cascading waterfalls of Yosemite National Park.
