Have been wanting to stay here since we first visited years ago. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and what a special treat to be able to sleep here. The cots were comfortable, but the nights were still downright chilly at this altitude in mid-June. We learned to save a bit of wood to take the chill off when we got up in the morning. We really enjoyed the conversations at meals--people come here from all over the world to hike and the way people are seated provides opportunities to meet lots of them. You can bring in your own wine (for a small corkage fee), which helps with the cost of dinner. We never had more than a short wait to get a shower.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Cabins of Tuolumne Meadows are located 60 miles from Yosemite Valley at over 8,700 feet above sea level. Here, you'll find 69 canvas-tent cabins that are available from mid-June to mid-September, conditions permitting. Situated next to a picturesque meadow, it's the perfect place to settle in after hiking in Yosemite-or before embarking on an extended backpacking trip. You'll find the Cabins of Tuolumne Meadows on Tioga Road, near the Park's eastern entrance on Highway 120 East. ... more less
