Our family-friendly home close to the Merced River's South Fork (Actually IN Yosemite) is beautiful in every season. Chilnualna Falls Creek runs a few feet beyond our back yard. Comfortable and welcoming - pets OK - with every amenity: Satellite TV, Game room (foosball), Hot tub, Full laundry and Full kitchen, Wireless Internet (DSL), Generator, Linen service, Central heat and Central air conditioning. Spend evenings on the huge deck (suitable for large groups) BBQing on a gas grill & relaxing under the stars in the hot tub. Let the river lull you to sleep. Enjoy a hike to nearby Chilnualna Falls, the Swinging Bridge, the Meadow Loop Trail, or follow the many trails which lead throughout Yosemite's 1000+ square miles. Snowshoe, snowboard and ski at Badger Pass, see Yosemite Valley & the Giant Redwoods, enjoy fine dining & play golf at the historic Wawona Hotel, go horseback riding, enjoy Ranger walks and talks, and visit the Living History Center or the town's well-stocked library, buy whatever you need at either of the two general stores, and stop and talk with the locals - including Park and Concessionaire personnel and retirees- friendly and seldom in a hurry. Swim in the river or the beautiful, quiet and secluded swimming spots cut out of the rock by Chilnualna Falls Creek. Relax in the simple and welcoming atmosphere of our small and unique town which is a true community, not just a collection of homes for rent.For more information, including up-to-the-minute availability and precise rates, please call or email us.

About the neighbourhood
Wawona (entirely within Yosemite National Park) offers small town hospitality, world class scenery and adventure, amenities such as local shopping, fine dining and golf at the historic Wawona Hotel as well as access to Yosemite Valley, Badger Pass, Glacier Point, and the 1000+ square miles of Yosemite's high country. Our home, Friend's Lodge, is minutes by foot from Chilnualna Falls trailhead, and the confluence of Chilnualna Falls Creek -runs just beyond our backyard- and the Wild & Scenic South Fork of the Merced River. Wawona is a terminus of two major Yosemite trail heads. Chilnualna Falls trailhead will lead you to exquisite and isolated swimming holes carved out of the rock, and the high country, beyond. The Swinging bridge is a pleasant and easy walk away from Friend's Lo...
Getting around
You will definitely want to bring a car, although there is limited local transportation within the Park.
