Fodor's Expert Review Tenaya Lodge

1122 Hwy. 41, Fish Camp, California, 93623, USA

One of the region's largest hotels, Tenaya Lodge is ideal for people who enjoy wilderness treks by day but prefer creature comforts at night. The lobby lounge is striking, with high windows and sturdy beams. Wood floors and rugs brighten the hallways, and the ample lodge rooms include upgraded baths with granite countertops and brushed-bronze fixtures. An additional 19 buildings hold 53 cottage rooms with outdoor seating areas and gas fireplaces. In 2019 Tenaya added 50 deluxe, custom-built cabins on a recently acquired creekside property. Embers, the resort's signature restaurant, serves seasonal locavore dinners and flaming desserts at candlelit tables surrounding a double-sided fireplace. The other restaurants offer everything from continental cuisine to burgers, pizzas, and pastas.
