Just outside of Yosemite National Park, Evergreen Lodge enjoys the perfect location for exploring Yosemite Valley, Tuolomne Meadows and Hetch Hetchy. Surrounded by pine forest, the lodge consists of cabin accommodation, with either one or two bedrooms, making it the best family accommodation in the Yosemite area. The 90 cabins are set within grounds of 20 acres, but it has been sympathetically laid out, so you don’t feel hemmed in.
The family cabins can sleep up to 6 people. They have two bedrooms as well as a lounge which has a sofa bed. Each cabin has a private deck area as well, meaning that there is plenty of room to spread out. There are no kitchen facilities in the cabins, but there is a store and restaurant on site. Decor is rustic, but comfortable with clean rooms and well proportioned rooms. Cabins have thoughtful touches such as baskets full of board games and there is a nice library in the communal area.
This is the type of lodge where you will feel comfortable relaxing on your deck while your children can explore. Dotted around the grounds are mini play areas, with outdoor games and activities such as horseshoe games and balancing beams, offering children plenty of areas to hang out in their down time. There is also a large pool on site and a playground with zip wire.
The lodge has several activities on offer for families. They can arrange day activities such as yoga, fishing or gold panning. On site, there are daily activities such as arts and crafts, music, outdoor movies and campfires.

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
