Retreat location

Under a grove of oak and pine in our own small valley with a stream, the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort offers a magical scene with cabins on stilts dotting the mountainside where walking is part of the experience.

This old camp dates from the 1930s and they now offer private hotel-style rooms in cabins, tent cabins, hostel cabins, house rentals along with group facilities, a health spa, and a highly regarded restaurant. You will encounter backpackers, young families, and outdoor adventurers in this fun place just 27 miles downstream from Yosemite Valley itself.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT). Christie Pitko Yoga recommends renting a car.

Arrival by bus

One way is to take the YARTS scenic bus, which picks up at the Bug and takes you directly to the park. Christie Pitko Yoga has personally done this and really enjoyed it. The ride is about an hour and 20 minutes due to the stops the bus makes, but the ride felt much shorter because it is visually stunning!

Christie Pitko Yoga recommends purchasing ahead of time. As it gets closer to the retreat, they will suggest a couple of times that they can take the bus as a group. The price is 21 USD roundtrip and includes park admission. Note that the walk from your room at the Bug to the bus stop is about 15 minutes.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 40% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 30 days before arrival.
