After all our kids made other plans for Thanksgiving, we decided to splurge on a special trip. All other hotels in Yosemite were full, and we felt lucky to get a room in the Wawona. What a classic beauty....from the quaint decorations in the main lodge to the comforts of our room, we felt like we had stepped back to a bygone era. We enjoyed listening to live music every night seated in front of a roaring fire and enjoyed several nearby hikes. The continental breakfast was hardy and delicious, and could be upgraded to include bacon and eggs. Thanksgiving Dinner was pricey, but well worth it and we especially enjoyed the beautiful dining room overlooking the garden and forest. We were warned that the wooden hotel was noisy, but it was not a problem and internet access is only available in one corner of the inn which forced us to limit our time online. All in all, a great way to spend Thanksgiving and one we hope to repeat.
