Join us for family-friendly 2019/2020WinterWonderland Holidays at Montecito Sequoia Lodge...

Remember when you were a kid and would play outside all day in the snow during the Winter Holiday Season?  The good old days of childhood when you, your siblings, and the neighborhood kids, had adventures building snow forts and snowmen, and everyone had to walk up the hill in order to sled down...then you would come inside to warm up, drink some hot cocoa, decorate cookies or a gingerbread house, or play foosball, ping pong or board games with your friends and family...all in front of a crackling wood-burning fire...remember?   


Wouldn't you love to share that simpler, unplugged, quality time with your children and grandchildren?  


At Montecito we love to create nostalgic, old-fashioned winter holiday memories for our guests.  We'll take care of all the details...the beautiful holiday meals, the festive decor, the fun holiday-themed activities...and the clean up, while you spend quality time with your family and friends!  You'll be grateful for the special memories and the new holiday traditions you will create with your family, all while surrounded by the stunning Sequoia National Forest and Sierra Nevada scenery!

For those of you who have not stayed with us before, please note that we do not have TVs or phones in our rooms or cabins, as we want our guests to relax and unplug, and spend quality time with their family and fellow guests during their stay with us.  Due to our remote mountain location, we currently offer our guests free Wi-Fi via satellite, which will be slower during times of peak use, but let our staff know if you need immediate internet access and we will assist you.  We also offer a free satellite phone for our guests to use to make calls as there is no cell service in our remote location.
