Yosemite Valley Lodge

Yosemite Valley Lodge is a favorite choice for families and large groups. The lodge is located directly across from Yosemite Falls and offers recently remodeled traditional rooms. Plus, a small number of popular Family Rooms and Bunk Rooms give families a little extra space. Yosemite Valley Lodge is a hub for activities and a convenient center for dining, shopping and other services. Its glass and wood architecture work in unity with the surroundings and the ample windows allow in the bright mountain sunshine while providing remarkable views.

Yosemite Valley Lodge Puts You Close to Activities in Yosemite Valley

Spending the night at Yosemite Valley Lodge makes it easy to explore the wonders of Yosemite Valley without ever having to get in your car. Catch a view of Yosemite Falls on the way to get a Starbucks coffee while the day is still quiet or admire the sunset reflecting off Yosemite’s white granite on the way back from dinner at the Mountain Room.

It’s a short stroll to the base of Yosemite Falls, or to views of Half Dome, Sentinel Rock and more. The Merced River flows right behind the lodge offering opportunities for a relaxing stroll or a refreshing dip, although some guests will prefer to swim in the outdoor swimming pool at Yosemite Valley Lodge.

For those that want to venture further afield, a bike rental stand on the property makes exploring other Yosemite Valley destinations a breeze. Designated bike trails keep you out of Yosemite Valley traffic, and make it easy to stop at any time to admire the views or snap an unobstructed photo.

Tours of the park also leave directly from Yosemite Valley Lodge. In the summer, guests ride open-air trams for the 2-hour Valley Floor Tour. National Park Service rangers lead the tour, and it’s easy to look up and admire the soaring cliffs above when there is no roof in the way. In the winter, the open-air trams are traded for a warm bus. A Glacier Point Tour adds in a trip to Glacier Point where you can look back down into Yosemite Valley from the rim, and an all-day Grand Tour introduces you to Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias as well as the Yosemite Valley sights and stories.

In the evenings, the outdoor theater at Yosemite Valley Lodge also hosts National Park Service ranger presentations. The talks cover a wide variety of different topics related to Yosemite, so you can learn everything you need to know about bears, the history of the park and more.

Convenient Dining Options at Yosemite Valley Lodge

The wide variety of dining options within the Yosemite Valley Lodge area makes it easy to find something for everyone.

The Mountain Room Restaurant – Savor delicious sit-down dining at The Mountain Room with a view of Yosemite Falls framed in the large windows at the far end of the restaurant. Feast on steaks done just the way you like them, sustainably caught seafood and delightful vegetarian options.

The Mountain Room Lounge – Located just across a small courtyard from The Mountain Room Restaurant, the Mountain Room Lounge is the perfect place to celebrate the day with a few drinks along with some delicious appetizers. During the warm months, relax outdoors on the patio. In the cooler winter months a fire crackles in a cozy Swedish-style fireplace in the center of the room.

Base Camp Eatery – The newly renovated Base Camp Eatery provides a wide selection of menu items in a cafeteria-style setting. Enjoy burgers and fries, entrees with local/seasonal ingredients, or grab and go selections to take with you for the day.

Starbucks – Did we mention there’s good coffee on the premises? Just what you need to fuel an adventure-filled day in the park.
