It has been said that we do not inherit the earth from our fathers, we merely borrow it from our children. With that thinking in mind, our parent company - Delaware North Companies - created GreenPath®. GreenPath, a formal, documented and comprehensive environmental preservation plan, covers just about everything we could think of to preserve and protect our natural resources. This plan is woven into everything we do - from contributions to environmental organizations to employee volunteerism. GreenPath is our way of making sure that our treasures are available for generations to come.
Tenaya Lodge's respect for its natural surroundings has evolved into a model of "green" travel and hotel operations that most resorts merely aspire to. One subtle but solid example: the lodge's eco-designed lighting eliminates ambient bleed beyond property lines and protects the night sky for stargazing.
Water-saving bath fixtures in every room conserve the supply of Tenaya Lodge's pure mountain well water. On the housekeeping side, our green hotel uses biodegradable laundry detergents minimize environmental impacts and the hotel will gladly oblige resource-conscious guests who opt to forego daily linen changes in their rooms.
For the health of all its guests, Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite is an entirely non-smoking resort.
