The National Hotel is one of the oldest continuously, operated hotels in California, dating to 1859.

Restoration was begun in 1974 by the current owners, brothers Stephen and Michael Willey, who continue the never-ending job. Today's nine-room hotel, furnished with antiques, offers a taste of the past with modern amenities—and a friendly ghost, Flo, who generally stays upstairs!

A generous buffet breakfast is included in the rates. Weather permitting, canine guests are welcome to join their uprights on the patio at lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Pet sitting can be arranged.

The rugged country leading up to Yosemite’s Big Oak Flat (North) entrance boasts a pioneer history as rough-hewn as the landscape itself. Tuolumne County towns along the Highway 120/49 corridors—Oakdale, Columbia, Jamestown, Twain Hart, Groveland—still have a boomtown feel, and with it, a relaxed attitude toward dogs.

Columbia, “the Gold Rush town that refused to die,” is engagingly preserved as a state historic park, its 1850s ambience captured in an array of historic buildings. more »
