“A Lovely Lovely Hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2007

We had a lovely cabin with outdoor decking area overlooking the forest. In the middle of nowhere with only a satellite radio for company a real getaway after busy days trekking in yosemite. food in the restaurant was nice, glad we booked our table as it was busy. No cooking facilities on site, a little fridge was in our room which we used for milk and drinks but take snacks with you as there on site shop is on the expensive side and there is nothing around for miles. Takes nearly an hours drive around some very windy roads to get here from the main parts of yosemite, but we saw deers and bears on the way so it was good. Free internet access and games. We really enjoyed our stay, this was an expensive place for us travelling on a budget but well worth it. Would definately return.

I had a two night stay here and loved it. We had a two bedroom lodge which was very clean and well equipped. I woke up one morning to see a bear roaming around outside! I think it's good value for money and well located for visiting Yosemite.

I found the Evergreen lodge through Frommer's and was a bit disappointed. Staffs were friendly. However, there were only limited activities at the lodge and their Yosemite tour was so-so. Location's pretty good. It is located about 30minutes from the park entrace. Beware of what you order at the restaurant. We ordered salad and fish and salad was not fresh and fish was terrible. Stick with burgers/fries/etc..

We stayed here 3 nights while exploring Yosemite and the Hecth Hecthy area. We were in one of the newer cabins and it was quite nice (including staellite radio). The recreation area was a kid magnet which makes this a great place for families. The restaurant was pricey but very good quality and quantities of food. And that is a good thing since there is no other food within a half hour of the lodge. The closeness to Hecht Hechty is a plus and well worth a hike.

I do have a couple minor negatives on the lodge. You are really isolated and about 40 min from Yosemite valley, The curvy road to the lodge induces motion sickness. There is no cell phone coverage and the 3 interent terminals in the rec room were only up about 1/4 of the time during our stay. And finally, their guided trips are really expensive and not recommended.

After reading about this historic - but recently refurbished - lodge in the Yosemite Fund newsletter, we were hooked. It was built originally to house and feed workers on the massive Hetch Hetchy Dam. Many cabins were newly built after 2000 - but the dining room and "saloon" still give it an old time feeling.

Meals were excellent - especially large lavish breakfasts. We ate on the outside porch each time. The enclosed restaurant is very simply decorated and the noise level, especially that of the kids, was a negative factor, but the porch area was serene.

Our large two room cabin was nicely furnished, with ceiling fans that helped with the afternoon heat. No air conditioning. The living room had a refrigerator, satellite radio and good reading light.

The lodge is about seven miles up a country wooded road and just outside the Yosemite park entrance. If you don't mind travelling some to get to Yosemite park features - this is a delightful alternative lodging.

  • Liked — Forest/Country location - comfortable rooms
  • Disliked — Entry road is tricky after dark

We stayed at the Lodge for two nights whilst exploring Yosemite and I can't speak highly enough about it.

It is away from the main roads and has the benefit for being very close to Hetch Hetchy dam which is a great place for a late afternoon walk.

The drive to the main gate of the park is about 20 minutes.

The lodge we were in was in excellent condition and bigger than expected.

The food is not cheap but of a very high standard. It is worth looking at the 2 night packages they do that include food.
They are good value!

Wireless Internet is available but take a laptop as the provided terminals were in constant use by other guests.

We recently stayed there. It was decent accomodations with a wonderful, although pricey restaurant and a nice activities center. Service was good and setting was pretty. Downsides were...cabin was much smaller than I thought, a/c was available in the cabins, it is about a 15 minute drive from Yosemite and then another 30 minutes to where most items are. I would strongly suggest trying to stay in the park if possible, If not, this is a good option.
