2014/2015 New Year's Celebration
Sunday, December 28th - Friday, January 2nd

2014/2015 New Year's details coming soon. Highlights from last year's celebration are included below.

From atop the mountains we are diving to the depths of the deep blue sea this New Year's with our 'Under the Sea' New Year's Celebration Weekend!

Days will focus on the best of Yosemite, including a variety of guided adventures, naturalist tours, Giant Sequoia snowshoe walks and scenic hikes. Nights will feature gaming, billiards, music, costumes and dancing. Food will range from extravagant dinners to fireside s'mores. Our Tavern bartenders will have a memorable array of drinks flowing all weekend!

Our secluded setting in the forest allows for an intimate New Year's experience. Since we have no neighbors, our New Year's Eve celebration will continue well after midnight, so you can enjoy the festivities to the fullest and then take a short walk back to your cabin whenever you choose!

There will also be plenty of unstructured time throughout the weekend to enjoy the privacy of your cabin, play board games or read a book by the roaring fireplace in the Recreation Center, catch bowl games in our tavern, or sneak away for a full body massage and a soak in our new hot tub. The weekend will provide the perfect mix of recreation, relaxation and indulgence.

You can say Bon Voyage to 2013 and enjoy your New Year's celebration with us in two ways:

  • A la Carte – Book your cabin (two-night minimum), then pick and choose from the many dining, party and recreation options available.

  • New Year's Package – Get the most value, fun and convenience from your visit by purchasing a two or three-night package, including New Year's Eve dinner & party, New Year's Day brunch, and much more.

NOTE: Please book early as our New Year's event will sell out.
