    Beautiful, Private, and Welcoming

    Lillaskog Lodge was exactly what we hoped to find when planning a wedding. Easy access to Yosemite park, breathtaking views, one-stop location, and charming history. The team was very responsive and so delightful to work with from the beginning to end. They helped coordinate vendors and set-up and break down the event, all with a laugh. We were so happy to find this location and customize our weekend to truly represent us as a couple.

    Yosemite’s best kept secret. WOW!!!

    We did an extensive search for a wedding venue. Thank God we found Lillaskog Lodge. This is a beautiful wedding venue and the scenery is just beautiful. We could have not asked for a better venue to host our wedding. We came all the way from New Jersey to host our wedding at this perfect location. Our guest and family were amazed by the beauty and nature of this place! Without any doubts this is a beautiful place! View is fantastic, the facility is very clean, and staff quite friendly and helpful. Our vendors (photographers, DJ, Caterers, and bar attenders) were amazed by the beauty of this place. “How come we did not know about this place?” Was the most common reaction from our vendors. Our memories of this place will last forever.

Liza Dadiomov
Liza Dadiomov
Lillaskog Lodge Owner/Operator

Tom McDonnell and Liza (Leeza) Dadiomov became the new Lillaskog Lodge owners in 2022. They had known of Lillaskog for many years, with Tom’s family’s whitewater rafting company (Sierra Mac River Trips) located just across the road from the lodge. Tom’s dad Marty had been friends with Bill, the original owner of the lodge. Tom and Liza fell in love with the lodge and even planned to have their wedding there. The pandemic shifted their plans, but they still dreamed of spending time at Lillaskog, and are thrilled to be the new stewards of this beautiful and special piece of property.

Tom grew up in Tuolumne County and has lived in Groveland for over a decade. Tom and Liza both have worked in the outdoor education and recreation industry for many years – Tom as a raft guide, and Liza as a backpacking and hiking guide. Lillaskog Lodge combines both of their passions for sharing the outdoors with others. Paired with their skills in Program Management, Reservations, Customer Service, and their vision for the future, they make a great team.

At the end of 2021, they were offered an opportunity to continue running Lillaskog, with the help of those who inherited it, and it has been a dream come true. They are both passionate about sharing their love of the outdoors with people and are looking forward to meeting future guests of the lodge and bringing their energy and ideas to Lillaskog!
