We strive to create memorable experiences for our guests by offering more than just a place to sleep. We hope to exceed your expectations while at the lodge and would love to hear from you after your stay.

If you’d like to share your experience, please call (209) 379-2606 or send us an email. Small businesses such as ours also rely heavily on public reviews to help spread the word, so we encourage you to share your review on our pages on TripAdvisorFacebook, or whatever sites you enjoy most.

Included below are comments from some of our recent guests. Additional guest reviews can be found on Trip Advisor, and we invite you to take a stroll down Memory Lane with more guests who have written to us to share their memorable moments at the Evergreen.

“We loved our stay at the lodge. You have done a great job of creating a welcoming, authentic environment that deftly mixes new and old. We look forward to our return!”
– Frank & Jenny Thompson, Phoenix, AZ

“The lodge is in an excellent location – we visited Yosemite every day – not just the valley area but Mariposa Grove and Tuolumne Meadows. The restaurant was particularly good and the quality of the food & service were both excellent.”
– Trip Advisor Review, United Kingdom

“This was the best Thanksgiving our family has ever had. We expected great food and got it but it was the other things that made it so memorable and special – family time by the fire, going on a hike near the lodge and seeing an owl, meeting other guests, your amazing staff, stargazing. We look forward to making this a yearly tradition.”
– Woods Family, Santa Cruz, CA

“Evergreen Lodge is a real jewel and exactly what we were looking for. Everything was perfect from the food to the great drinks to our wonderful cabin and your great staff. We went on a guided hike for the first time and that was truly the highlight of an amazing stay. We were amazed at the view from North Dome and we even saw a bobcat and a Native American grinding stone. Thanks for a memorable stay.”

“I don’t want to go home! What a great discovery. Well done!”
– Beverly Vicente

“Our family had the best time at Evergreen. The kids had so much fun meeting other kids, playing in the woods and interacting with your staff. We played games, took hikes, roasted marshmallows, actually talked at dinner and felt like a family for the first time in a long while. Thank god for places like the Evergreen – sign me up for next year.”
– Rasmussen Family, Montclair, CA

“Your staff should be applauded for being so nice and giving. They really give your property heart and soul. We loved our cabin, the food and the live music, but we will always remember Nick, Steve, Kathy, Joe and the rest of your team.”
– Portio Family, Miami, FL

“Standing at Polly Dome Lakes was something I will never forget. The water reflected everything around it, deer roamed nearby and, best of all, pure silence! Our guide was awesome and every guest added something special to the trip. Returning to the lodge for a beer and lasagna was the perfect end to a stellar day.”
– Marsha Miller, San Francisco, CA

“Where do I begin – there were so many great surprises. We slept like babies, ate like kings and danced like nobody was watching! That band was amazing. Your wines were all so good and the elk, lasagna and flat iron steak were exceptional. We loved our cabin, our guide on the fly fishing trip and the historic feel of the lodge. Keep up the great work!”

“We really liked this place! Fantastic ‘off the beaten track’ location, with a lovely restaurant. We had one of the new cabins which was lovely. The staff are friendly and helpful and there are also a large amount of organized activities available from the hotel. We would love to go back again one day!”
– Trip Advisor Review, Leeds, England

“Can I come and work here? Seriously, I have never felt so relaxed or at home. We really enjoyed Yosemite and discovering your lodge. Snowshoeing through those gorgeous meadows and returning for a drink by the fire was perfect. You made our stay in Yosemite very special.”
– Don & Perky Lindstrom

“Our stay was perfect: great accommodations, great food and great staff.”
– Jan Nielson, San Diego, CA

“After twenty years of staying in Yosemite Valley and never visiting Hetch Hetchy, I finally made the switch and I’m glad I did. Evergreen is such a special place. I love how you’ve added your own personal touch to the historic property and still made it work. Everything is well thought out and well executed. I shall return.”
– Mike Cain, Palm Springs CA

“What a great Christmas holiday. My husband and I drove up from LA and immediately our stress disappeared as we drove down Evergreen Road. What a beautiful stretch of road and what a beautiful property to arrive to. Our cabin had a great view, the food was surprisingly good, your staff was so kind and the holiday touches were so well done. Thanks for helping us end the year on such a great note.”
– The Spectors, Bel Air, CA

“We had no idea you had such great food and yummy wines. Coming from the Bay Area we are picky about food but we can honestly say that you passed with flying colors.”
– Matt Barnes, San Francisco, CA

“We saw bear, deer, falcons and raccoons, and that was just the first day. The stars were the best we have ever seen and the waterfalls and wildflowers were amazing. Your lodge is something special and very unique in this day and age.”
– Miles & Margaret Brown, Omaha, NE

“We were recently married at Evergreen Lodge and loved the experience. A long weekend of family, friends, food and fun was made possible by an amazing staff, who were friendly, helpful, and seemed to really enjoy what they do.”
– Trip Advisor Review, Ventura, CA

“Are our five days in paradise really over? Thank you to everyone at Evergreen for making our honeymoon such a memorable experience. You all went beyond the call of duty to take care of us. We will never forget our amazing sunset tour or the incredible meal served on the porch by candlelight. We will return often to relive this special time.”
– Matt & Suzy Sherman, Chicago, IL

“We’re sitting by the fire right now in the recreation center with the kids roasting marshmallows outside. A fantastic end to a wonderful day! John caught his first fish, Laura scrambled to the top of Pothole Dome and we had a beautiful sunset on the drive home. Life is good at Evergreen!”
– Morgan Family (John, Laura, Dick & Shelley)

“What a great place to stay if you are going to Yosemite. My wife’s idea of roughing it is staying anywhere short of a Hilton, so staying here with no TV or phone in the room was a big change. But you know what? She loved it! And so did I.”
