Wake Up at Wuksachi
Imagine spending the night in a modern yet rustic lodge with vaulted wood-beam ceilings, grand stone fireplaces, panoramic windows overlooking a snow-filled forest, and jagged mountain peaks all around. Now imagine that this lodge is reasonably priced and not overbooked. Sound good? Welcome to Wuksachi Lodge. Just 10 years old, Sequoia's only overnight accommodations (aside from snow camping) blends modern comforts with natural touches, making it a perfect—and perfectly situated—base camp for exploring the park. Rent snowshoes and cross-country skis on site: Trails literally leave right from your door. Wind down the day with a hearty meal in the friendly full-service dining room kept warm with a stone fireplace.
Winter room rates at Wuksachi Lodge change but generally start at $100 to $120 per night.
