Guide review: Evergreen Lodge

Evergreen Lodge is our favorite place to stay when visiting Yosemite, offering value for money that more than makes up for its distance from Yosemite Valley.

The older parts of Evergreen Lodge were built in the 1920s, giving it a charming, old-fashioned feel, but most of the accommodation is in cabins and cabins. The old “vintage” country houses have been extensively renovated inside to match the look of the newer ones. And all of them are done in a smart, clean style. The cleanliness is impeccable.

It all adds up to making this a relaxing place to stay, in the woods with many modern conveniences. In fact, there is a danger that you will like the Evergreen Lodge so much that you do not want to leave it, but if you are looking for a quiet experience and away from it all, it could be a good option. thing. Add a massage, a bath, or a guided walk and you’ll be rejuvenated in no time.

Take the time to walk around the property and you will find many fun and hidden things like a giant spider web made of ropes, a sleepy hammock, or a fort made of tree trunks. And be sure to find the sunset deck at the right time, as it has a great view.

The best way to be happy at Evergreen Lodge is to know what to expect. Just because the place has cabins does not mean that you will be able to cook in them. Rooms have refrigerators, but no kitchens. It’s 5.5 miles from the main road (15 minute drive), which is one of the reasons it’s so quiet, but it’s far enough that once you get there you probably don’t want to go anywhere else. place to eat. Don’t let that be a concern. Their on-site restaurant serves an innovative menu with locally grown produce and includes some very interesting sounding vegetarian dishes.

Due to its remote location, Evergreen Lodge relies on satellite internet access, which is slow and only available in public areas. Don’t plan on downloading a movie, watch that video feed, or email a bunch of photos to your friends. Some people may assign negative points for this, but we find it refreshing to be in a place where all our modern gadgets cannot distract us.

Cell phones also don’t work at Evergreen Lodge. They offer free calls to anywhere within the United States so you can call home, with only a few phones available for this in public areas.
