We actually were going to Mono Lake and had a hard time finding lodging in Lee Vining. So glad we stayed at TPR instead. Wonderful rustic cabin over 100 years old, we stayed in cabin #4 and yes the front door faces the backdoor of the cafe's kitchen. But a creek was between us and the view from the rest... More

I spent a night at the Tioga Pass Resort prior to hiking in the Yosemite high country, thinking it would aid in acclimatizing to the altitude. I don't think it helped despite the Resort being located at approximately 9500', and my gasping for breath the next day must have been loud enough to be heard throughout the Park. My brother... More

This quaint lodge just minutes outside of Yosemite is a wonderful alternative to lodging within the gates of Yosemite, has a delicious and reasonable priced cafe and the people are wonderful. The property is small and only opened during the summer months, they offer lodges that can accommodate multiple size parties with fabulous views and balconies over looking water features.... More

We stayed at Tioga Pass Resort August 24-26,2013. We had made these reservations in January for a specific cabin, in this case motel room 1, by e-mail correspondence. Tioga Pass Resort consists of 10 cabins and 4 motel rooms. Cabins 1-6 are next to a stream behind the main building and parking lot. Cabin 7 is on the edge of... More

I had the distinct pleasure of visiting TPR this month and it was spectacular. The 10,000 ft. altitude took a few hours to adjust to but the scenery was unmatched. Located at the top of Tioga Pass, at the east entrance to Yosemite, this place is special. Our full service cabin was clean, comfortable and well equipped. With 2 Queen... More

2 miles away from Yosemite Park from East Sierra, 10 miles mountain climb from the town center of Lee Vining. Better value compared to those overpriced inns and motels on the main street, you pay for the same or lower for a great mountain retreat in a cabin by the crystal clear running stream. What's more? Enjoy the sun inside... More

We stayed in cabin 5 (directly behind main building) for two nights in late June 2013. Gorgeous scenery! We loved the stream separating our cabin from the main building. It was hard to get our two kids out of it. Cabin was nothing fancy. Two double beds, kitchen, bathroom with stall shower. Coffeemaker provided upon request. No living area, per... More

We stayed for 2 nights (July 4th and 5th) in cabin 9 and totally loved it. It is located in a beautiful setting amidst mountains, tall trees, meadows with a creek flowing nearby. A short hike to the top of the hill behind our cabin gave the best possible view of the entire location and it truly represented the Yosemite... More
