An extensive roof restoration project is beginning at the Wawona Hotel.

The construction will be focused on replacing the roof with a new fire-rated roof and upgraded flashings to protect the historic Wawona Hotel. The construction will only take place in the Main Building of Wawona Hotel and construction sound should be limited to the working hours of 8 AM - 5 PM Monday through Friday. At this time, there will not be any impacts on breakfast or lunch services. However, please note that during this roof restoration project, there may be some interruptions to the views from the main veranda, dining room, and select second-floor room as scaffolding will be present around the main building. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

One of California's original mountain resort hotels, the Victorian-era Wawona Hotel was originally established in 1856. Situated 27 miles (16.5 km) from Yosemite Valley on Highway 41, this National Historic Landmark is near the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and the Pioneer History Center. 

Accommodations consist of 50 standard hotel rooms with private bath and 54 standard hotel rooms with shared bathrooms. The hotel dining room serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the evening, wind down your fun-filled day by gathering around the piano for musical performances in the lounge. Seasonal amenities include a nine-hole golf course, a swimming pool, and riding stables.
