Located near Yosemite National Park’s south entrance Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite offers a variety of lodging options including cottage rooms, lodge rooms, suites, and reviewed here, the Explorer Cabins which opened in 2018. The cabins are located on 27 forested acres with views of a creek, pond and alpine meadows.  When open (temporarily closed due to Covid-19) a continental breakfast and afternoon reception is offered at the Explorer Clubhouse, a central gathering place for guests staying at the Explorer Cabins. From there it's about a 10-minute walk along a quiet path to the main lodge if you want to indulge in the resorts amenities; spa, dining, pools and gameroom. (check for temporary closures). 

When you're ready to explore Yosemite you might want to avoid the hassel of driving and take advantage of one of the tours offered in a custom-made wheelchair-accessible tour bus complete with a retractable glass roof.
