The Ahwahnee is usually booked months in advance. Summer stays, as you might expect, are difficult to arrange without gearing up well in advance. If you're completely shut out, keep in mind that the great lounge, dining room, and other public areas are open to all. Dinner in the dining room -- if your budget permits -- and an hour relaxing in the lounge are a terrific way to experience the Ahwahnee, even if you're bunking in Camp Curry's most humble tent cabin. Remember that the Ahwahnee is a regular stop on the free valley bus system.
