We originally planned to stay at Lillaskog for one night and extended our stay for two nights. The location is excellent for Yosemite -- as close as you can get to the park without staying in the park itself (where the options are Ahwahnee or options that are not so pleasant). We stayed there before our hike up Half Dome... More

This is an awesome home to rent for a couple of days or a week or even longer! We stayed here in June with 4 other families and a total of 20 people, no other home in the vicinity could fit those many in one home and boy it was a party! Rustic, beautiful views, awesome facility and proximity to... More

As part of a Yosemite driving and hiking tour, we just stayed at the Lillaskog with another couple. We were delighted with our two-night stay. On arrival, we were greeted by, Bill Charlson, the owner. He is friendly, very interesting and knowledgeable about the area. The lodge sits high on a hill with great views from the living room windows... More

This B&B has figured out how to make even a brief stay feel like home. Stunning views, cozy and spacious lodge, and a host whose hospitality and good humor make it feel as if you were her personal and only guest. I told her the only negative thing about the place is that it causes one to almost forget about... More

What a great little place to stay the night! While driving up the little road I wasn't expecting the great log cabin I saw!!! The inn keeper was very welcoming-with suggestions what to see and places to eat. The sunset treat was a great bonus and the stars were amazing!!! This place is a hidden gem outside Yosemite...we will be... More

From the rustic rooms to the stunning sunsets on the balcony (accompanied by pudding provided by the warm and helpful manager Cecelia) we found it hard to fault Lilliskog. We arrived in the pitch black to the welcome sight of the fairytale timber lodge lit up in the darkness at the end of a half mile gravel track and a... More

This was the find of the century! Our family had the best time at the Lillaskog! CC, the innkeeper is a total gem. She went above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. She is also hilarious and had the best stories. In the evenings, she would offer to let all of the children come down and help... More

This hotel was the surprise highlight of our 10 day trip through California. We needed a place OFF the main road but near Yosemite. - A large group of all ages, we were welcomed very warmly by Cecilia, the organized and fun hostess. Throughout our stay, she made us feel as though we were visiting our favorite aunt in her... More

Last August my sister and I looked and looked for a place near Yosemite National Park where we could have our family reunion. Luckily, one of the places that did not have the "right" facilities for our needs recommended Lillaskog Bed and Breakfast. What a place it was!! The scenery was wonderful from the balconies. It is pretty isolated so... More

From an accommodation perspective, this lodge was easily the highlight of our family's California tour. A beautiful timber construction with carefully maintained garden, some free-range animals to which the kids really took, the best breakfast we've had, really, really comfortable beds, a well stocked library and games, a bonus dessert being served in the evenings and most importantly the most...
