Cons

  • Due to forest fire, a lot of the surrounding area is burned
  • No kitchens in cabins; no cooking allowed
  • No TVs or phones (a pro for some)
  • No fitness center or spa (though massages are available)
  • Cabins are a bit close to one another

Bottom Line

Evergreen Lodge is a 22-acre cabin resort surrounded by Stanislaus National Forest, about one mile from Yosemite National Park’s western border. The 90 cabins come in different sizes -- some perfect for newlyweds, others great for a large family -- and are rustic, cozy, and comfortable with large private decks. Techies beware: There are no phones or TVs in the cabins, and the Wi-Fi service in the recreation halls is less than reliable. It's a great spot for nature lovers, though, who want to be disconnected from the world for a bit and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding pine trees instead. Guests looking for something active to do will find it too -- there's some equipment for rent on-site, such as mountain bikes and snowshoes, plus fly fishing, bocce ball, rafting, horseback riding, and two recreational halls filled with games, books, and arts & crafts materials. And the outdoor pool opened in Spring 2012, making the Evergreen an even better spot for families. However, due to the raging Rim Fire, several acres of the surrounding forest are burned. The hotel's website details the extent of the damage but fortunately the property was virtually unscathed.
