A historic downtown with shops and restaurants makes Groveland a popular stop for tourists heading east to Yosemite; the Iron Door Saloon, with original bar intact, is said to be the oldest continuously running saloon in California. Pine Mountain Lake is within two miles.see all hotels in Groveland
We stayed in a detached vintage chalet, which was absolutely lovely and very private. We had a large bathroom (no bath) and the room was decorated in a country vintage style. The resort is located in a great setting, with a nice pool and a wonderful hot tub overlooking the forest. It also has a sunset viewing point. The menu choice at the restaurant […] was not extensive and pricier than we had been paying elsewhere, but the food was good. The resort is about an hour's drive from the Yosemite visitor centre (on winding roads) so don't book this if you are short on time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, great location"
A short, windy, drive just outside of the Yosemite National Park. I have always wanted to stay in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere and this was pretty close. All the structures are built out of wood, with a great rustic feel, open fire in the rec room, onsite pub, store and restaurant. It was perfect. The food is of an excellent standard too, which […] is good as once there you are pretty much a captive audience. I would highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No air conditioning"
The setting is beautiful, the service provided was excellent however I had 3 nights of terrible sweaty sleep due to no air conditioning. Instead we were given a fan and slept with no sheets in over 100 degree temperatures. I would not recommend purely on this basis, without this factor I am sure we would have enjoyed more as the food and the location […] for one of the best places in the world were fantastic Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed in one of the outer cabins - near where bears had been spotted! Great cabin, very nicely set out, only criticism would be the thermostat controlled fireplace which would click on and off all night and it was quite noisy!! Pleasant staff, well stocked bar, and peaceful location. Shame its not a tiny bit closer to Yosemite Valley.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location not far from northern entrance. Lovely swimming pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"shame about the cleanliness"
loved the lodge, how close to the park but also how lost in the forest you are. you can actually have nices walks from the hotel and also nearby ( the lady looking after the activity center was very helpful). the only let down was that our room was quite dirty. the batroom still had load of hair from the previous guest ( long black one that were hard […] to miss) and I wish the carpet would have been hoovered daily as well as the bathroom moped, after a few days staying there it just didn't look good. otherwise the stay was really enjoyable, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right in the middle of beauty!"
Wonderful location. Wonderful site. Lots to see and do. Great pool area after a day of walking, sightseeing. Lovely restaurant for evening dinner.Unfortuanely, had a bad fall and damaged leg, ankle. Told we couldn't access first aid that night. Had to go through a long night before we could travel to the nearest clinic. Received an apology on our return […] home, saying staff on duty should have done more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good access to Yosemite"
A long drive to get to Evergreeen Lodge but well worth it. A very well planned and organised resort that is environmentally friendly and now has a pool. Plenty of options for food. Takes about an hour to get to Yosemite valley itself but much nearer to the Hetch Hetchey area of the park. Suitable for families and couples of all ages. A great place to […] stay. We had the basic cabin and it was more than adequate for a couple. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
pro: beautiful location in the middle of a vast pine forest, large family rooms, good facilities (pool, restaurant, store...). con: long drive (about an hour) to Yosemite village, a little noisy at times (due to campground on site), rather expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location and the cabins were absolutely lovely - deers running around as you sat on the balcony! Pool was lovely in the evening after a visit to the Park and just a pity we missed the bbq as we weren't told about it but the food in the restaurant was lovely. Definitely would recommend this location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"set in an area of outstanding natural beauty"
The main Lodge and reception are built of sturdy logs, as are all the individual lodges. We stayed in a Vintage cabin. This was one large bedroom and a separate bathroom. The room was warm and comfortable and really gave you an impression of staying in a remote area. It is only a few miles from the west gate entrance/exit of Yosemite National Park, […] which is awesome! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Evergreen Lodge, near Yosemite - Stunning Location"
A perfect location. Our back porch looked straight out into the forest and our Deluxe lodge was semi-detached, but in a complex of others. Automatic gas fire in the room was great for warming up after a day outside. The coffee machine and fridge were also very useful. All in all a perfect base for exploring Yosemite, but make sure you allow enough time […] to get to the valley - it's about 2 hrs away - but is what you'd expect from the region being so vast. The main lodge buildings provided great food (and not too expensive compared to other US cities), a recreation room (with a lovely fire), table tennis, WiFi, a well-stocked shop with good sandwiches for a day in the National Park. The only disappointment was that we only had two nights here, and we both felt it was the highlight of our honeymoon. The experience of watching the sunset over the trees was wonderful; and it was only 2 minutes walk from the lodge restaurant. Highly recommended when staying in a Deluxe Lodge. For UK visitors it might look expensive, but is a large room and in a beautiful setting - well worth the visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Evergreen Lodge - fantastic location"
The lodge complex is situated near to the west entrance of Yosemite and gave us a real sense of staying in the wilderness. The cabins were comfortable and plenty large enough for a family of four. Our only slight disappointment was the range of food available - since there really is nowhere else close by to eat, we had to have dinner on the site every […] night and the menu was fairly limited and rather expensive. Having said that, the meals we did choose were excellent. All in all a fantastic place to stay to enjoy the Yosemite experience without being in a tent! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The lodge is in a lovely place just outside The entrance to Yosemite park. Only small issue was. The service in the restaurant could have been a lot slicker! Quality of waitresses was unequal from very good to pretty awful. Overall a great place to stay especially with kidsGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Evergreen Lodge - Awful"
Hard to know where to begin with this! To be fair we had a bad day leading up to our arrival at Evergreen but we were so pleased to get there and felt we could put up with anything. It seems Evergreen Lodges were set on proving that theory wrong! On entering our cabin we were confronted by an awful smell sort of like damp and the gas from the heater […] combined and everything in the cabin had that smell. It was freezing (literally) so it wasn't possible to open a window. We had arrived late and the desk was just closing so we were optimistic and decided we would get used to it. The lodge was tiny and it did not feel robust. It was like an old store shed had been converted into a room for unsuspecting tourists! On the plus side there were lots of blankets although they stank of the heater and damp too. The bathroom seemed large compared to the rest of the cabin and it was cold beyond belief. The shower cubicle was tiny. Both my husband and I are 6 foot tall and the shower head came to around the rib cage. It was impossible to bend down to wet your hair as the cubicle was so narrow your bum got wedged against the side! Up until we went to bed we were aware of a noise coming from the heater but we were not concentrating in this as we had so many other problems to contend with. It transpired the heater would randomly make a noise like a backfiring car approximately every 20 minutes and around every hour or so it would click really really loudly for around 5 minutes. We would be nodding off and then BANG and you'd get the fright of your life. Our nerves were in tatters and after around 2 hours of fitful sleep we were at reception at 6:45 the following morning to check out. The lady on the front desk was sympathetic and helpful and she did offer to change our cabin but the was no way we were staying in that place any longer. She refunded our remaining nights accommodation as a gesture which we did appreciate but the whole experience of Evergreen Lodge was horrific and one we Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Interesting alternative to your typical hotel"
Top marks for trying to make an effort and for us at least, top marks for succeeding. Lodges were clean and well fitted out for a very comfortable stay although worth noting that there was no TV or wifi in the room itself, although both available in the common rooms within the hotel grounds. Very child friendly. A long way from anywhere else to go so […] on-site restaurant and bar will be where most eat. Thankfully both offered above average service although limited choice if staying more than a few days. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Good spot to explore Yosemite NP. Friendly people but a bit run down facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Evergreen Lodge captures the true spirit of Yosemite...it was as memorable as the scenery itself. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful visit at evergreen lodge. The setting is beautiful and the cabins are clean and well kept. Lots of activities for kids/families. The only negative was that it was a little hot at night while sleeping. Our kids ages 10 and 13 didn't want to leave! Everything is on sight which made it event te relaxing(dining, general store,pool,etc). […] We would definitely return. Think of it as high end camping! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
very family oriented and close to Yosemite the pathway lights at night and tall red woods make this a lovely location access to a ice machine would be nice instead of a pint bag given out each day the GPS would not show the shortcut on Evergreen road due to personal propertyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome Wilderness Paradise!"
I went here for an overnight stay after hiking Half Dome with my boyfriend. It was just the place to be after a strenuous hike. We had a late check in but I called ahead and there was an envelope waiting in a mailbox outside reception with directions to our beautiful Deluxe Cabin. Everything was clean and we had our own deck off the cabin. We slept […] well and the next day we had a delicious breakfast at the lodge restaurant with Peet's coffee. We soaked our sore limbs in the hot tub and pool. Everything was perfect and I can't wait to book a longer stay for our next trip to Yosemite. This place is perfect for couples, families or retreats. You can relax on the grounds after an active day of hiking or biking. I can see elderly people having a good time here too. Everything appears to be accessible even for wheelchair users. Love it!

"WE LOVED THE EVERGREEN LODGE"
We stayed at the Evergreen Lodge on our recent trip to Yosemite. We stayed We stayed in a cabin and were very pleased with the size, cleanliness and comfort. It had a small refrigerator and coffee maker. You have about a thirty minute drive to Yosemite but it is worth it. The lodge is quiet and relaxing. Nice to get away from the very crowded Yosemite.They […] have a very nice pool and hot tub which is nice after a day of hiking. They have a recreation area with many fun things to do for kids.

"Roughing it without roughing it"
For a city boy who has never camped or anything, Evergreen Lodge was great. The accommodations were ample and clean. My girlfriend and I had a little cabin for two and it was "cute".

We did the "Wonders of Yosemite" […] tour, guided by Bryant and it was great! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Bet Near Yosemite"
Spectacular location; superb service; guided recreation with great kids; great facilities ... and, in a big surprise, a gourmet chef at the rustic tavern/restaurant. Only "gripe" (not really, this is an out of the way, off-the-grid sort of place with no telephones or TV but does have satellite radio) is intermittent internet by satellite; no cell service […] either (hooray). Lovely staff; quick to help. "Hotel" is scattered private or duplex cabins with decks ... way wonderful getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Lodge is very nice. We had a half cabin with large bedroom with balcony, couch, fridge, Sirsus radio and large bath. Room was clean and very comfortable. The restaurant was surprisingly good, with more interesting food than one would expect for a hotel near a national park (e.g., roast duck with figs, pasta with mushrooms, home-cured lox, and local […] fresh fruit for breakfast). Even the hamburger was excellent. The staff in the rec center, who gave advice about hiking and viewing spots in Yosemite, in the restaurant and at reception, were all helpful. The downside is the length of the trip to Yosemite. I think the Evergreen Lodge is the closest hotel to the Yosemite valley that is not actually in the park. The Lodge is about a 15 minute drive to the route 120 Yosemite Park , with another 45 minute drive to parking in Yosemite valley. The trip to Hetch Hetchy is somewhat shorter.

"PERFECT FOR FAMILY VACATIONS"
This was our 2nd time staying at Evergreen Lodge when visiting Yosemite area and we absolutley love it. The staff is friendly and helpful and everything you need and want to do after a long day of hiking is right there. We love the firepit and s'mores, friendly games of bocce ball or shuffle board are always a great hit too. The new pool and sunset […] decks they have installed since our last visit are amazing - you can't ask for a better place to spend your day and/or evening hours! It has become our place to gather with our family on a yearly basis! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what we expected"
For the price of the hotel, we expected better bedding, mattress, bathroom fixtures, and more convenient parking. We ordered a dinner plate from the restaurant, and the meat was well undercooked. The nightly family activities need to be better developed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall an excellent stay, breakfast was slow, if you are after an early start, maybe think of self catering for breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Secluded Comfort"
This place is in the middle of nowhere, but quite comfortable. It is not far from Yosemite Valley -- about a 40 minute drive, so it's convenient for visiting the Park, and is about as close as you can get to without staying in the Park itself. It has a public deck oriented toward the daily sunset, and when we were there, did see a spectacular one. The […] restaurant had great food, but it's essentially your only choice ... there is nothing else within 45 minutes. It's a great place if you want to get away from it all - there is also no cell reception no in room WiFi/Internet, and no in room television. They do provide free long distance telephone and very slow Satellite based WiFi in a public recreation room if you need to connect with someone. The cabins are very comfortable, and it is very quiet!

"Australian family's first visit to Yosemite 2012"
Beautiful place amongst the pine trees. Service was excellent, well organised, we were allocated great cabins near the new pool area. The food was fantastic and extremely well priced given the location, in comparison to what would be charged back home in Australia for the same standard of meals and service. Accommodation was very clean, roomy and functional, […] with nice soaps, hair products etc to use. Great coffee machine and access to more coffee at the General store........Another washing machine and clothes dryer would come in handy, rather a busy place to be. Many thanks again for the great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great stay at the Evergreen Lodge. The restaurant was excellent & fairly priced which was important as the distance from other options for dinner was very far. Only disadvantage was no Internet connection/wifi/cell or tv, but that was the case for most of the Yosemite area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great, only problem for me was the bed mattress - too soft.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Ambience, limited internet"
We stayed three nights at the Lodge and very much enjoyed the wooded location, property amenities and the chance to be away from the crowed Yosemite area for relaxing evenings. Our cabin was very nicely appointed with a private balcony looking into the woods. The general store on site had reasonable prices on snacks, wine and such so we were able to […] enjoy evenings on the deck over a glass of wine and music from the terrific Sirius satellite radio provided. Some may find the drive into Yosemite (about an hour) to be too much and there are no other convenient restaurant options except for the Lodge. Internet connection was pretty limited, so anyone hoping to work online while in residence may be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Yosemite's Hidden Gem"
Although the Evergreen Lodge is about 45 minutes from the Yosemite Valley, it is worth the drive! On the other hand, it is only about a 5 minute drive from the Hetch Hetchy entrance of the park. The Evergreen Lodge was wonderful!! The staff were nice and the cabin we had was fabulous--spacious and clean! There is a nature trail, the John Muir house, […] recreation area, pool and hot tub, gift shop/grocery store, and a full service restaurant. The restaurant provides wonderful food and service but can be a bit pricey. The main entrees ranged from $25 to about $32. If you want a side salad, it is an additional $7. Burgers and sandwiches range from $15-20. There are sandwiches for about $7 in the grocery store, along with gelato, snacks, cereal, milk, and drinks, etc, etc.. Activities are available in the afternoon and evening, and they offer s'more making every evening. There are plenty of games, books, and other activities available in lieu of a t.v. in your room (not to mention movies in the rec hall and a night of bingo--with prizes). They do have some computers in the recreational area that have internet via satellite. Satellite goes in and out and internet is somewhat slow, but still available. Rooms have Sirius radio available at no charge. I would definitely stay here again. It was relaxing and fun and well worth the money! Great for couples or families! Lots to do for everyone! It's like being at a resort but at a much more affordable price. 5 star---hands down! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good, but isolated, hotel"
We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge; our room was "rustic," but comfortable. Our one reservation about the Lodge is that there are no places to eat except at the Lodge. So the dining experience depends completely on the Lodge's restaurant, which we found inconsistent. Our first meal was wonderful, good food and service in a comfortable setting. The second […] meal was not nearly as good. The food and service were OK, but not at the level of the first meal. The main problem was the noise coming out of the kitchen. We were seated across from the door to the kitchen and each time the door opened, we heard orders being yelled out. Not only did it disturb our dinner, but it gave us the impression that it must be awful to work there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Secluded"
If you're looking for a quite, secluded place to stay outside of Yosemite Park... this is it. We stayed in a "Vintage" cabin that must have been one of the original cabins on the property. The cabin was small, but clean. We did not spend much time at the cabin, preferring to visit the park, sightsee and hike. Evening time was spent sitting on the cabin's […] cute little porch and drinking wine/beer. The property has WiFi (don't count on it), playground area for kids, ping pong, pool tables, outside fire pits and a very nice common area. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised. The only down side is the location... do not attempt to find this place in the dark. Even though it is only 6 miles outside of Yosemite, the road is windy and not marked well... several times we thought we were lost or had taken a wrong turn. Just a few signs along the way would help tremendously as you feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere (and that's not necessarily a bad thing). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Yes, this place is farther from Yosemite than I would have liked, but there aren't many choices. The pleasant surprise was the quality and variety of the menu choices at the main restaurant. Excellent! I would go back just for the food. No cell phone signal and VERY slow Internet connection on the courtesy computers. Very nice pool area. Don't get excited […] about having a "fireplace". It is a gas stove that wasn't turned on when we were there in mid September. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The place is perfect for those looking to stay close to Yosemite. What made this hotel really stand out for me was the helpfulness of the staff. I got the family up very early to go to Yosemite, only to discover that the battery on my rental car had died. Fearing the worst, I found someone at the front desk, who then ran into the kitchen to find Marcos. […] Marcos came out, got his trunk, helped me push my car and gave the battery a jump start. He wouldn't give up until he got the car going. He literally saved the day. I've stayed in a lot of places over the years, but can't remember the last time someone went that far out of their way to help. My family and I will never forget Marcos and the Evergreen Lodge!

"Best Hotel option in NW Yosemite area"
Hotel was like being back in Muskoka in Canada. Rooms were all cedar cabins. Nice new pool. A little on the higher price side but if you are looking for a quality hotel stay in Yosemite this is it. At night in the tall pine the place is beautiful. New pool is great for summer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Heavan at Yosemite"
The primary great thing of many great things about the Evergreen Lodge is that it is the closest lodging outside the park. As we sat down to a delicious gourmet type meal outside at thier restaurant we thought this is what it must be like to go on a luxury safari. Primative but being spoiled with every creature comfort. After a full day of hiking, swimming […] and taking in Yosemite to experience the great staff and their super service was a joy! Bocce court, yes bocce court !! a nice pool, ping pong and foosball were all free. We were delighted that there was no in room TV or internet service but I was able to keep in touch with my work with their phone & internet service in the main building. Books and clean almost new board games are in every room. Great drinking water from thier natural spring well as well as a very comfortble bed was "icing on the cake". It's not cheap but worth the price. Highly highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
