Wawona Hotel, Yosemite National Park, CA.

                                        Thursday 5/3/2012

After seeing the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees, we drove to see the Wawona Hotel. The Wawona Hotel is a Historic Hotel located four miles from the southgate entrance. The hotel sits between the Mariposa Grove and the Yosemite Valley.

The Victorian style hotel was built in 1876 for tourists visiting the Mariposa Grove.

One of the six buildings on the 16.5 acres property.

It has a pool, but it was not in operation as we were not there during prime season. The hotel also has a 9 hole 35 par golf course.

The front veranda has a launge area with cushion chairs and couches.

The other side of the verada has tables and chairs to enjoy breakfast, lunch or tea.

A firerplace and tables and chairs are in the lobby/registration room.

A peak into the dining room from the lobby/registration room.

Lots of light in the dining room.

The ceiling lamps in the dining room have sequoia trees on the shades, and sequoia acorns on the chain and dangles.

Looking out the front door to the fountain.

The Moore Cottage is located behind the main front building.

The Clark Cottage is also behind the main front building.

Joe and I found the stairs in the back of the main building to the top porch of the main building of the Wawona Hotel.

Chairs outside a guestrooms of upper porch. There are no TV's in any of the rooms.

View from the upper porch of the fountain and circle drive.

Another one of the six buildings on the property.

View from the side of the main Wawona Hotel.

As we walked around the property we found this sign, directing where guests catch the shuttle bus that takes them to all parts of the park. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay while you visit Yosemite National Park, this is it!

Everyday as we drive home, we drive past the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. It is a historic 3 ft   narrow gauge railway with two operating steam train locomotives, open during the summer giving daily passengeer rides. If you have kids, this would be a good place to stop.
