Lillaskog Lodge, Buck Meadows, California

27557 Packard Canyon Road · (209) 962-1818 · Map · Website

Lillaskog is a 5,000-square-foot, 6-bedroom, 7-bath vacation rental, built as a bed & breakfast but now operating strictly as a rent-the-entire-lodge affair for $1,100 per night. It's 13 miles (21 km) outside Yosemite's Highway 120/Big Oak Flat entrance.

Owner Bill Charlson, a retired park ranger, bought the Lillaskog acreage after a 1999 forest fire destroyed much of the area; most of the wood used in the lodge's construction was salvage logged from the property. Lillaskog, which means "little forest" in Swedish (per both Bill and Google Translate), is a tribute to Charlson's Swedish heritage and to the thousands of trees he replanted on the property. The lodge has wide-ranging distant views; on clear days, Mt. Hoffmann and Tenaya Peak are visible from the deck.
