We have visited Tenaya Lodge on several occasions, both summer and winter and found it delightful. The rooms are nice, the restaurant is very good and the area is beautiful. It is a bit of a drive into Yosemite Valley, but the area around Tenaya Lodge is very pretty - nice forest area and close to Bass Lake for summer activities and Badger Pass skiing in winter. Tenaya is a winter wonderland during the Holidays. It's decked out and very festive, really beautiful, with seasonal activities and nightly entertainment. The service and hospitality of the staff and servers has always been outstanding - very friendly.
