Our Premium Cabins offer a truly immersive Yosemite-Sierra experience. Enjoy the rushing Big Creek, mountain pond or alpine meadow from your master bedroom porch. Like the Deluxe Cabins, the Premium Cabins feature one king-size bed and one queen-size bed with a large shower. Premium Cabins have the same layout as Deluxe Cabins but are located in some of our best locations.
Offering the comforts of home, nestled beneath Incense Cedar and Sugar Pine trees, Tenaya’s Deluxe Cabins are sure to offer a one-of-a-kind mountain escape. The Deluxe Cabins have the same layout and amenities as the Premium Cabins but are toward the interior of the grounds.
Bunk beds in the Explorer Cabins, Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite
Our Family Cabins are unique to the resort property, offering a bunk bed in the second bedroom! With a full bed on bottom and a twin on top – this room is perfect for guests of all ages. The floorplan is the same as the Premium Cabins, but with a shower tub in the bathroom instead of the shower-only arrangement in the Premium and Deluxe Cabins.
Tenaya Lodge knows that people of all abilities have the urge to explore. The ADA-compliant version of the Explorer Cabins is the same as Deluxe or Premium Cabin, but with widened doorways, a larger bathroom, grab bars where needed and all the other features listed but made accessible for all explorers!
Located just outside Yosemite National Park’s southern entrance, the Explorer Cabins are an excellent base camp for visiting the newly renovated Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. These enormous trees are some of the world’s largest and oldest living organisms!
