It's half camping, half hotel. There's just something wrong about seeing Yosemite and staying in a hotel. Of course, a February visit means the climate is cold and unforgiving.
Enter... the Yurt. It's not camping. It's not a hotel. It's a little bit of both. You are in a warm indoor tent-like structure, with all the benefits of camping (campfires, smores, hiking, etc.), with the luxury of sleeping in a bed, a basic stove, refrigerator, even a tv (we never turned it on). It's about 30 minutes to drive to Yosemite Valley, though you will stop a few times for some of the scenic overlooks.
Don't expect it to be as nice as a hotel. The amenities are very basic... but compared to camping, it's the Ritz! I'd recommend to anyone visiting Yosemite to visit the Yosemite Lakes Yurt Village. At the end of the day it's a quiet retreat on a hill, as opposed to thousands of the great unwashed camping down in the valley. Amateurs.
Bring in food because it's in the middle of nowhere. The local store is closed after 4, and the next town is probably 45 minutes away.
