Tenaya at Yosemite


Tenaya at Yosemite is a full-service resort nestled into the Sierra National Forest. It’s just 2 miles from Yosemite National Park’s South Gate Entrance. That puts it only minutes from the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.

Tenaya at Yosemite offers several different types of lodging options. First, you’ll find hotel rooms and spacious modern suites at Tenaya lodge. That keeps you close to services and amenities like restaurants, pools, and other activities. The Cottages are a short walk from the Tenaya Lodge. These rooms have private entrances, outdoor sitting areas, and fireplaces. For even more privacy, try the Explorer Cabins at Tenaya. These two-bedroom cabins offer a more secluded experience with a comfortable living room and a private deck.
