Our policies and guidelines have been developed over time to describe best practices, clarify our core principles, and to resolve conflicts and mis-understandings before they start, and otherwise further our goal of offering a home away from home as an alternative to an impersonal hotel room.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We would be happy to discussed any of our policies with you. Additionally we are interested in how we can do things better.

It is our goal to listen and base our future guidelines and polices on both the needs of our guests and the ability to continue to offer some of the best Yosemite lodging available.

Deposits and Insurance:
No pets are allowed at Yosemite Peregrine Lodge. Even well behaved pets are not accepted due to our desire to provide a healthy environment for those who have Asthma or who have allergies. Also the park is not a pet friendly environment and many trails are off limits to pets. Please do not ask.
You are not allowed to leave a pet in your car in the valley or at our lodge. Showing up with pets will result in the immediate cancellation of your reservation and you will be asked to depart. No refund will be given.
No smoking indoors or on decks. Smoking is allowed only in the designated outdoor area located at the lower entry to the lodge.
Cannabis is a legal drug in California, but if it is used in smoke form it like any other form of smoking such as cigarettes or tobacco pipes will not be allowed in the lodge or on any of the decks or property.
If marijuana is ingested in smoke form it must be used only in the carport smoking area. Due to the contact nature of smoke inhalation, when ingesting cannabis in smoke form, only adults 18 and older may be present.
Our community of Yosemite West is in Mariposa county where marijuana is legal, but you must get to us by entering a national park.
Keep in mind marijuana is a federally controlled substance and may not be brought into the park. When it comes to laws, entering a National Park is like leaving the state you are in and entering another country.
Fines for marijuana citations in California’s national parks depend on district courts but often end up being $200 or so. Arrests are rare, unless the case involves large amounts of concentrated cannabis, probation violations or another crime, like gun possession or drunken driving.
In my experience watching the rangers interact with campers, it may even depend on if you are guilty of “contempt of ranger”, i.e., giving the ranger a hard time, being difficult, combative, and being a big mouth cry baby. Remember rangers are people just doing their jobs, treat them respectfully.
And a fact you should be aware of is that most marijuana citations in California’s parks are issued at Yosemite, which is the state’s most visited national park and has a history of more pot busts than any other national park in the United States.
Please think before you decide to bring it with you.
