Lonely Planet review

This National Historic Landmark, dating from 1879, is a collection of six graceful, whitewashed New England–style buildings flanked by wide porches. The 104 rooms – with no phone or TV – come with Victorian–style furniture and other period items, and about half the rooms share bathrooms, with nice robes provided for the walk there.

The grounds are lovely, with a spacious lawn dotted with Adirondack chairs. Wi-fi available in annex building only.

Our independent authors have visited Wawona Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Yosemite Gateways.
