Swimming Pool Area
We plunged into a whole new depth of fun when we opened our new pool area in the sunny Cedar Lodge section of the resort in 2012. It’s a relaxing retreat, offering beautiful forest and sunset views, and includes:
- Swimming pool and hot tub
- Walk-up pool bar serving drinks and light fare
- Bathrooms, changing rooms and showers
- Upper-level Cedar Room and Terrace for activities and private parties
The 2,000 square foot swimming pool provides ample space for adults and children alike to relax and refresh after a long day on the trail. The pool ranges in depth from 3’ to 4.5′ with a large shallow area for kids to play, as well as a deeper area for adults. The pool is open year-round from 10 am – 10 pm, weather permitting. Naturally, it is not open during our annual winter break from New Year’s Day to President’s Day Weekend in mid-February.
Our luxurious hot tub accommodates up to 14 people and provides soothing relief to aching muscles after a day of exploring Yosemite. It’s also a warm, welcome escape during our cooler seasons, and hot tub stargazing has become a guest favorite!
Both the swimming pool and hot tub are filled with salt water, providing a wonderful swimming environment with soft, odor-free and irritation-free water.
In keeping with our green philosophy, the pool and hot tub are solar heated, the pool uses an automatic cover each night to minimize energy consumption, and showers drain to a new gray water landscaping system.
Adjacent to the swimming pool you’ll find our walk-up pool bar that offers an assortment of tasty libations throughout the day, including beer, wine, spirits and refreshing blended drinks. Our poolside drink menu also features a fun selection of ‘mocktails’ for the kids. You’ll also find tasty lunch items and Happy Hour snacks on our poolside menu.
Above the Pool Bar is the Cedar Room & Terrace, our newest group and event space. This beautiful upper-level area offers a 550 square foot event room with an adjoining covered terrace overlooking the pool.
It’s the perfect location for meetings and private events, including small company retreats, family reunions, bridal parties and more. Catering options are available as well.
Beyond private events, the Cedar Room is also used for a variety of daily activities ranging from Yoga to alternative party space for major sporting events on the big screen!
The covered terrace is an amazing spot to escape the sun while enjoying a refreshing beverage or lunch.
