Imagine waking up with Yosemite on your doorstep. That’s what happens at The Redwoods In Yosemite, a jewel within the national park’s boundaries. This property in the community of Wawona has welcomed generations of Yosemite guests since 1949, and currently includes more than 110 individually owned vacation rentals, that range from rustic cabins to luxurious homes with up to eight bedrooms. Advantage DogTrekkers: more than two dozen are dog-friendly!

Located about five miles from Yosemite’s south gate, The Redwoods lets you select from various home sizes, styles and amenities. The property’s private, pet-friendly accommodations have fully outfitted kitchens, living and sleeping spaces, outdoor decks, and options like hot tubs and gas grills. Dogs receive special treats, and on-leash pups are welcome on most fully paved trails and roads surrounding the cabins (and throughout Yosemite).

Marvel at towering trees by day or catch the moonglow on snow-dusted meadows by night. It’s an awe-inspiring landscape, and awesome discounts at The Redwoods add value to seasonal getaways. The Wawona Winter Deal takes 25% off when you stay for two nights or more by February 20, 2023 (book before January 1, 2023; select holiday dates excluded). The Redwoods In Yosemite also extends discounts to Yosemite Conservancy passport holders, and all guests get a free night with a seven-night stay.
