Yosemite's Explorer Cabins

Tenaya Lodge debuts spots for guests to have a cabineering experience

Tenaya Lodge is a relaxing base camp for exploring iconic Yosemite National Park. New this summer are the Explorer Cabins at Tenaya Lodge. The picturesque cabin development will offer guests a unique Yosemite “cabineering” experience that combines the refined comforts of a modern cabin, personalized service and the perks of a full-service resort — all in a pristine mountain setting.

The 50 stand-alone, two-bedroom Explorer Cabins are nestled within a forest of sugar pines and incense cedars and surrounded by nature trails. At 650-square feet, the “mountain modern” cabins sleep up to six guests and include a living room, kitchen area, two bedrooms and a private deck from which to unwind after a day of adventure. Each cabin has a fireplace and custom finishes and fixtures such as granite countertops, plank flooring, plush sleeper sofa and cozy Pendleton blankets. 

Artwork featuring noteworthy Yosemite explorers provides a glimpse into the region’s history, while thoughtful amenities such as a cabin journal for guests to leave observations and tips for fellow travelers, discovery cards highlighting area flora and fauna and custom amenities on arrival further the connection with the iconic location.

“Cabins are synonomous with getting away from it all, outdoor adventure and fun experiences that strengthen bonds between family and friends,” — Tenaya general manger Paul Ratchford

Cabin guests also have exclusive access to the Explorer Clubhouse, an 1,800-square-foot communal retreat with relaxed gathering areas and an expansive deck with picturesque views. A hub of activity, the clubhouse offers easy check-in, convenient grab-and-go daily breakfast, evening wine and charcuterie receptions and other special events.
