My husband and I always like to stay somewhere nice and close to a trail head prior to our annual backpack trips. For our pre and post 7 day backpack trip lodging this year, my husband and I were fortunate enough to stay in the Wuksachi Lodge superior suites (rooms 223 and 312). Unlike the negative reviews I read prior to booking our stay, I found EVERY single employee to be cheerful, helpful, and extra accommodating to our needs. We picked the large suite because we wanted to have enough room to bring our backpacks in (45 and 65 lbs) to recheck prior to starting the High Sierra Trail. The rooms are VERY large and appointed with beautiful, new furniture suited to a forest setting. The refrigerator and coffee maker made it very convenient to eat dinner in our room and get a quick breakfast for an early start to our backpack. Can't say enough of the comfort, convenience and styling of the rooms. The shower was HOT with plenty of water pressure and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The superior suites are the only rooms with true aircon which was a blessing during the hottest week the Sequoias have experienced in many many years. We ate dinner in the restaurant and I have to say, I was jealous of my husband's duck breast with roasted yukon gold potatoes, broccolini and the most beautiful big arugula leaves I have ever seen. (we were anxious to eat fresh veggies after our dehydrated dinners on the trail). I had the Caesar salad and requested salmon with it. Our waitress asked if the chef could do it--no problem and very reasonably priced...$13.00. Highly recommended for anyone looking for exceptional lodging prior to or after a backpacking trip in the Sequoias. We visited the Lodgepole area down the road and it is packed with tourists and campers. The Wuksachi Village area was far less busy and the expansive grounds provided a sense of peace and quiet that we truly enjoyed. Go for the superior suite and you won't be disappointed in anyway....it has 2 sofa beds plus the king bed to accommodate a family of 6 although the single bath may be a bit of a crush. We would go back in a flash.
