In compliance with Governor Newsom’s mandate, as well as Sierra Club’s organizational guidelines, Clair Tappaan Lodge, Hutchinson Lodge and the backcountry hut system are temporarily closed. Reopening is currently not scheduled until at least March 1st, 2021 for Clair Tappaan and Hutchinson Lodges. The Backcountry Huts will be closed until at least April 1st.

       Clair Tappaan Lodge stands with the community and our agency partners at The Sierra Club in heeding the advice of public health officials in doing what we can to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The safety of our guests and team members is always our top priority.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and please check back with us for updated information.

Sierra Club members receive a discount, but you do not have to be a Sierra Club member to stay here.  If you are not a member of the Sierra Club, and would like to receive the Sierra Club discount, we offer memberships at the lodge.  This Sierra Club membership is good for one year and will give you and your guests a $5 discount per person, per night.  

Your stay includes three hearty meals per day: Depending upon occupancy dinner will have two or three seating times on your night of arrival. Reservations will be secured either at booking time or a few days prior to arrival.  Bagged lunches are ordered at dinner and delivered at breakfast the next morning. Breakfast will also have two or three seating times and reserved in advance.

We offer a wide variety of accommodations to meet everyone’s needs.

Traditionally, reservations cancelled within 14 days of arrival are subject to a 25% cancellation fee. If a reservation is cancelled within 72 hours of arrival, the cancellation fee increases to 50%. No-shows and cancellations on the day of arrival are subject to a 100% cancellation fee. The only exception to this policy is in the event of an official road closure by the State Department of Transportation due to weather (call CAL TRANS at 1-800-427-ROAD), in which case no cancellation fees apply. In the current Covid-19 environment we will work with you should you need to change your plans or cancel.
