Love our Tamarack Lodge cabin in the woods vacation!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 21, 2024
This was our third annual trip visiting the Tamarack Lodge. We were looking for a cozy cabin in woods experience, not a big property, luxury everything experience and the Tamarack is it. We love it and so does our dog - it is truly a dog friendly property. The Lodge is located right across from the lake. When there is snow we hike, cross country ski and play in the snow to our hearts content. When there isn't snow we still hike, kayak and enjoy the beautiful Mammoth mountains. There are rooms in the lodge but we stay in the cozy cabins which are perfect - rustic, homey, with a full kitchen stocked with all the dishes and cookware you need. But spoil yourself one night and treat yourself to a gourmet dining experience at the Lakeside restaurant - it is fantastic. The property is well run, the staff is friendly, professional and attentive without being intrusive. The Tamarack Lodge is a perfect place to unplug, have fun and get cozy with your family and friends furry and otherwise.

Our family enjoyed a lovely, wintery stay in a cabin with easy access to our parking spots. The cabin was perfect for our needs, and was warm and welcoming. The staff members were as friendly and kind as we’ve ever experienced. When we needed something, we’d ring the front desk, and within minutes, Brian, Tim, Donald, or another staff member would come. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen stocked with all the necessary equipment. We would definitely stay here again!

Tamarack Lodge and Resort is a wonderful and spiritual destination. Great location and charming accommodations (fire place!). The Staff is extremely attentive and professional. I called the resort the night before my arrival to understand all the benefits of staying there. Tim, one of the key ambassadors of the resort, was a great help in setting the positive and welcome tone before my arrival. After my arrival, Tim made sure that my experience was even better than I expected. Brian, Donald and David were super helpful and nice in providing a memorable experience. I will return to this unforgettable resort very soon.

Room tip: Just enjoy the fireplace and the hot cider during the cold evenings!

We had the most wonderful time staying at the Tamarack Lodge in Mammoth Lakes. The cabin we stayed in was cozy and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the evenings in the lodge, warmed by the fireplace. We had some very interesting conversations with other guests, while being entertained by local musicians. We appreciated the efforts of the many staff members who were always there to assist you, including David, Donald, Bruce, Tim, and Aldo.

We are third time return guests to Tamarack Lodge. We try to go the end of January every year because it is not as expensive as the holidays. This time we chose to stay in the lodge proper. The heat and hot water were challenging for us but were explained very well upon questioning about the system. Basically you self adjust and/or wait. The lodge is a historic building and so one waits. We ended up completely temperature comfortable and warmly washing.

There is a possibility of having a kind of breakfast at the lodge upon request. It is an additional fee for the room. Every single morning we were presented our breakfast tray, ordered the night before, by Manny Marquez.

He always served it with a smile and appeared to really care that we were happy. Not everyone eats in the lobby so it was very nice.
From there we would proceed to cross-country ski and/or snowshoe for the the day.

Upon return, we were greeted by Manny almost every day and offered hot cider. For us this is a place to which we will return as many times as is possible.

Room tip: Bring money. Food isn't cheap. Rooms don't have fridges. If you have a cooler and can replenish ice, even better.

World class location and service make this a unique high mountain experience! Brian, Tim, Manny, and the rest of team are simply outstanding at addressing whatever issues may arise, be it a foot of new snow, or whatever you need in your room to make your stay extra special. We stayed in the Top of the Lodge this time, which features panoramic views from the top floor, but have also enjoyed many other rooms over the years. The lodge dates back to 1924, and is therefore quite rustic, but if you are looking for the best alpine experience in the Sierra Nevada, this is it!
