Wayfinder Bishop Honors California’s High Sierra

Hospitality brand Dovetail + Co has debuted its third Wayfinder hotel.

Located in California’s High Sierra region, the 87-room Wayfinder Bishop is firmly rooted in its rugged landscape and the region’s adventurous spirit.

Local art takes hold at Wayfinder Bishop

Designed by Dovetail + Co’s in-house team, led by creative director and interior designer Erin Weinstock, Wayfinder Bishop’s interiors pull inspiration from the natural color palette of its surroundings—from the vibrant reds, orange, and yellow of foliage to the crystal blue of mountain lakes, and earth tones of evergreen trees.

The reception area features a desk hand-carved by local artisan Lance Stanislaw and a handmade cedar strip canoe suspended above. Artwork displayed throughout the hotel’s public areas include pieces by Karma Henry, Annie Cashner, Ron Luce, Lynn Marit Peterson, and Galen Rowell, as well as memorabilia from local shops and flea markets.

Guestrooms are a cozy retreat thanks to custom throw blankets, rustic furnishings, and vintage décor and art by local makers like Courtney Bagby, Karma Henry, and Beverly Schroeder.

Wayfinder Bishop is home to two food and beverage options. Whistling Trout, an indoor restaurant characterized by furnishings upholstered in patterned textiles, unique light fixtures, and vintage elements, including paintings from Inyo County, as well as fishing collectibles sourced from nearby shops.

Meanwhile, Creekside Club is the hotel’s lobby-level bar and lounge with both indoor and outdoor seating. The space pays homage to Bishop’s Mule Days celebration—an annual festival that celebrates the legacy, heritage, and talents of the mule—with vintage saddlery, oil paintings, postcards, drawings, and brochures.

Additional onsite amenities include riverfront seating with fire pits, an outdoor heated pool, hot tub, sauna, and gift shop.
