Go Horseback Riding

You’ll feel like you’re part of the Old West when you’re riding through the Emigrant Wilderness. Riding stables and guides are available at Kennedy Meadows or Aspen Meadows.

Pan for Gold

Imagine you’re one of the old ’49ers panning for gold with the help of an outfitter such as Gold Prospecting Adventures in Jamestown. Explore a working mine to see how gold is gleaned from ordinary-looking dirt and rocks.

Visit Yosemite

Experience the feeling of being part of the wilderness in Yosemite National Park where you’ll see endless expanses of land and the wildlife that inhabits it.

McCaffrey House is, quite simply, a paradise for those who love to explore and feel truly alive amidst the majesty of nature. When your day of riding, hiking cycling or winter sports is done, enjoy a soothing massage in the privacy of your room. It’s truly like a piece of heaven on earth!
