Cabins

Tenaya at Yosemite Explorer Cabins offer 560 square feet of space located on 27 forested acres with creek, alpine and meadow views. The Explorer Clubhouse is only about a 10-minute walk along a quiet path from the main lodge. Or you can make a quick trip in your vehicle.

All cabins have two bedrooms, a living room with flat-screen TV, and a 90-square-foot covered porch to relax on and take in the smell of the pines. Explorer Cabins also include a wetbar area with a compact fridge and freezer, microwave and a Keurig coffee maker. Please note: cabins do not include an oven, range or cooking utensils.

Solar Power Cabin #41

Each day, Explorer Cabin #41 captures approximately 16 kilowatt hours of energy from the 12 solar panels on the roof. This is exciting as it fully supports Tenaya’s commitment to our environmentally-responsible GreenPath principles. More than 2,880 kilowatts of energy will be saved over a year’s time. That’s 229 gallons of gasoline that doesn’t have to be burned. Harnessing renewable green energy from our yellow sun is an electrifying development for both Tenaya at Yosemite and our planet!
