Best in Mammoth

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 8, 2024
We were blown away by how good this place was. Very comfortable, warm, excellent beds, quiet and a totally equipped kitchen. No television, what a joy, reasonable internet. Very welcoming staff. The snowy paths require a little dexterity but that’s not a complaint. I would be thrilled to stay here again

I hadn't been to Tamarack Lodge in more than 20 years but the special characteristics and charm of the place has more than endured. We spent a total of 5 nights in one of the small couple's cabin and felt both on vacation and at home. The room was somewhat rustic (as expected) but very cozy, the bed very comfortable, and the kitchen easy to work in. If you are going to cross country ski there is no better option than Tamarack; you can literally get on the trails from your doorstep. The main lodge is also very welcoming and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. During the trip our car battery died and the staff at the front desk loaned us a portable charger to get us into town AND loaned us the appropriate tools to change the battery when we returned (the garage in town, near closing time, was not as accommodating.) They even helped us with some unexpected copy needs! Last but far from least, the Lakefront Restaurant was excellent - a must if you're staying there and a celebrated and popular dinner stop throughout the area - and our meal there was a capper to this terrific visit.

A few tips I would offer would be to book your cross country ski passes directly with the center versus the 800 Mammoth number (which I originally did). They were more helpful (knowledgeable?) regarding discounts for staying at the lodge and two for 1 Tuesday passes, both of which saved us considerable money over the 4 days of skiing. Also, if you have trouble getting around I might ask for a cabin closer to the road (not sure if all sizes are available down low) because the slog in the snow from the road to the upper cabins is something to consider (they do have sleds you can load gear into and I believe you can also ask for assistance). Finally, ask about reservations to Lakefront Restaurant upon arrival as it is a small dining room and often booked but the staff does their best to get lodge guests in. Safe travels!

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.
