A delightful change from run-of-the-mill, unimaginative & sterile chain operations.
The National has a distinctive gold-rush character, loaded with charm. Maintaining a property such as this cannot be easy, but the present owner is doing an exemplary job!

During a visit to Yosemite, a freak snow storm came through and the rangers closed the 120 back to our condo in June Lake. Our only option "home" was to exit the park on the 120 through Sonora, head up to South Lake Tahoe area,...More

Thank you for considering us. Parking is off premises, either in the parking lot next door, or on the street which most consider to be quite safe.
