While we are all pet lovers at the Evergreen, pets (other than service animals) are not allowed in or around guest cabins, in vehicles or on the property. Pets are often riled by forest animals (bears, squirrels, etc.), which can create potential conflicts with nature and disturbances for other guests. Pets also create issues for guests with allergies.
Please be aware that pets are highly restricted within Yosemite National Park – the National Park Service only allows pets on fully paved trails and roads on the Yosemite Valley floor, on a leash 6 feet or shorter, and they cannot be left unattended. They are not allowed at any of the lodges in the Park, and they are not allowed in Yosemite’s High Country.
For all of these reasons, we cannot allow pets at the lodge. A $250 fee will be charged for violations. Please help us to enforce this policy by not bringing your pets with you on your visit. We appreciate your understanding.
Our goal is to provide our guests with an experience that combines a classic ‘cabin in the woods’ with modern comforts. We offer the following amenities to enhance your stay:
- Air Conditioners – Cool off in your cabin after a long day of Yosemite adventures, with individual air conditioning unit for each cabin.
- In-Cabin WiFi – Enjoy effortless access to complimentary WiFi internet access in each cabin.
- Alexa Devices – To keep you up to date and entertained, we’ve installed Alexa Devices in all of our cabins. Alexa Devices let you instantly connect to Alexa to play music, get information, news, weather and more just using your voice.
- Phones – For our guests to stay in touch we’ve included a phone in each cabin, with free domestic phone calls, that way you can share your Yosemite adventures with your friends and family that were unable to join your travels.
- Comfy Beds with Feather Pillows – To help you get a great night’s sleep, our cabins feature comfortable Sealy beds and luxurious, hypoallergenic feather pillows from Pacific Coast Feather.
- Gourmet Coffee Brewers – Coffee lovers will appreciate our Keurig single-cup brewers. These patented units allow you to brew gourmet coffee and tea in the comfort of your own cabin.
- Electric Kettles- These kettles allow you to boil our delicious mountain well water all in the comfort of your cabin. We’ve even included a variety of Twinnings Tea bags for the tea lovers staying with us.

- Hair Dryers/Irons – Hairdryers are provided in each of our cabins. Irons and Ironing Boards are also provided in each of our cabins.
- In-Room Safes – For that extra peace of mind, we’ve added programmable electronic safes to all our cabins. These safes are large enough to store your camera, laptop and more.
- Daily Housekeeping – Housekeeping service is provided on a daily basis. Fresh towels and linens are provided at check-in and upon request during your stay. We are proud to supply Ecossential bath products in all of our cabins.
- Guest Laundry – Located adjacent to our campground bathhouse, this facility offers coin-operated laundry machines for Evergreen cabin and camping guests.
We have purposefully kept some amenities out of our cabins such as televisions to encourage guests to enjoy the mountains and get away from it all.
However, if you need to catch a big game, satellite television is available in the tavern. If you need to stay connected, telephones, computers, and Wi-Fi are available for guest use free of charge throughout our property.
Note that our cabins do not have kitchens and that individual cooking and barbecuing are not allowed on the property. For your dining pleasure, the Evergreen has a wonderful restaurant with a diverse menu serving three meals a day in a variety of relaxed settings.
