Located on the Sequoia side of the Sequoia / Kings Canyon National, Wuksachi Lodge is the flagship property in the area. With three separate buildings filled with rooms, a full-scale restaurant and fantastic location near many popular attractions, this is a great home away from home. I got the opportunity to stay for a few days this fall and here is all the information.

When you pull up to the hotel you will notice how striking the main building is against the beautiful mountain vista behind it. This building is where you check in, but all of the rooms are a tenth of a mile uphill in three separate buildings.
The lobby has a beautiful fireplace with lots of plush chairs, a small store for souvenirs and a full restaurant.
They also have a stuffed bear that sits in the lobby for the guests to interact with and is a fun mascot for the hotel.
We stayed in the middle of the three room buildings and it was a nice, secluded place to stay.
The room itself was large with two queen beds, a full bathroom and a small living area with couch, TV and table. It was a great jumping off point for our explorations in the national park.
There are also cheaper rooms that just don’t have the added on living area, but check out the view from the window of our room.
The hotel feels remote which is amazing and we often saw deer grazing the grounds as we walked down to the restaurant.
I had the opportunity to dine here for two dinners, two breakfasts and one boxed lunch, here is all the information.
The breakfast is buffet style and always had pancakes, french toast, fruit, bagels, eggs, bacon and sausage. It also had orange juice and coffee so it was a good selection for breakfast each morning.
We ordered a box lunch to take with us on a hike as they deliver box lunch order forms to your rooms each night and you can place your order and pick up when you leave for your adventure. Mine had a tri tip sandwich, pasta salad, chips, a brownie and apple juice. I took it and ate in one of the sequoia groves which was an awesome spot to eat at. The food was really good for a boxed lunch and I recommend it.
Both nights when I went to dinner here were fantastic. The first night I had a rib eye steak that was prepared medium rare and was juicy and full of flavor. It came with au jus and a horseradish pastry to round out the meal. I left happy.
Night number two I had a pork chop and fig dish that was even better than the previous night. The meat was prepared perfectly and I couldn’t recommend it more as the flavors were just so good.
For dessert I highly recommend the lavender honey ice cream which is on point. The lavender ice cream comes drizzled with honey and is the perfect way to end a meal here.
All in all my time at Wuksachi Lodge was fantastic. I cannot wait to come here again in the winter as I imagine it would be a beautiful place to hang out by a fireplace watching the snow fall. Let me know if you have been in the comments and if not make sure to book a trip up to this amazing lodge in a fantastic park.
