Friendly Staff, Rustic CharmPosted Nov 30, 2013
Pros: Rustic Charm, Friendly Staff, Great Location
Cons: Update the furniture in the cabins, but keep the rustic charm
Location: Great location - there were hiking and cross-country ski trails on the grounds. Sledding hills as well. Beautiful views.
We went here for Thanksgiving with our 2 kids. We accidentally booked ourselves into a tiny room, and the staff went out of their way to find more suitable accomodations. We ended up in a cabin and they gave us a great deal on it. The cabin was roomy and very clean, and had a great fireplace. We were able to rent a TV, DVDs and board games from the front desk, which was great. There was plenty of sledding on the grounds, and we were able to get more sleds from the front desk as well! We had Thanksgiving Dinner at their restaurant, and it was excellent. No complaints, except that the furniture could use some reupholstery and some tile in the showers would be nice! But it was a great place to take our family and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We also loved the rustic charm of the main lodge, and enjoyed sitting by the fireplace there.

Perfect settingPosted Oct 11, 2013
If you want a cozy, rustic cabin with a beautiful view...this is your place. Great hiking trails and great location. Very old fashioned.

rustic lodge close to lakePosted Sep 29, 2013
Pros: The location alongside Twin lakes.
Cons: Improved complimentary breakfasts, TV in rooms, bathroom floor mats (the tile was very cold)
Location: The many lakes, Devil's postpiles, Hot creek.
Room was spartan. No TV, but radio and music. Dining was very expensive, but food was great. Wine selection was limited.

A Great Mountain Lodge FeelPosted Aug 12, 2013
Cons: Needs some refurbishment.
Location: Very convenient to all Eastern Sierra parks, activities, shopping and wide selection of restaurants. Recommend a visit to ghost town of Bodie.
A true American mountain lodge of the 1920s. Cozy feeling summer or winter. Comfortable bed. A real "shabby chic" place with the most stunning view of the Eastern Sierras that you are likely ever to see.

Wonderful lakefront lodgePosted Aug 11, 2013
Pros: Location is fantastic. Desk staff were incredibly helpful
We spent 2 nights in a lake-view cabin. Location was fantastic, and the desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The cabin was newly remodeled with a compact kitchen. The bathroom was a tad claustrophobic, but with excellent toiletries. The continental breakfast was so-so but adequate. We ate dinner twice in the intimate (10 table) restaurant. The first evening, a veal chop ordered medium rare came out terribly overcooked, but they replaced it quickly and comp'd the dish. Everything else was excellent. We will definitely go back.

For the View OnlyPosted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: The outside scenery and the check-in staff.
Cons: Work needs to be done on the floors so they don't creak with every step you take. Some instruction on how to get the movies to play would help.
This is an ok hotel to stay at if you don't plan on being in your room very much and you don't require very much space. The "living room", bedroom, and bathroom combined take up less than 300 sq ft! My husband had to step into the closet to let me pass by out of the bathroom. They do not have TVs...instead they have a screen you can borrow (it's covered by your tweny dollar resort fee) and movies you can pick from to watch. Its hard to figure out how to get the actual movie playing after the trailers. Even with the windows open, there was no cool air to be had! Even if I had a fan, there were only 3 outlets in the place and all their lamps took those up. Driving up to the property, we were struck by the beauty of the lakes, trees and mountains. The cabins you can rent are so cute in that setting. We had a room in the main building and not a cabin. You can rent boats, kayaks, and bikes to enjoy the outdoors around you. It just wasn't a good value for the cost per night for us.

It's a mountain lodge, keep expectations realisticPosted Jul 19, 2013
Pros: The free breakfast.
Cons: I had to pay un unexpected $20+ at the hotel, even though I thought I had paid everything through Expedia. The Lodge needs to get this clarified.
Location: Great location, lots of things to do, but I didn't use them.
Its location is great, right on the beautiful twin lakes. I was only staying one night while I attended the Jazz Jubilee in the town. I had the cheapest room with shared bathroom with shower. It was all OK. Nothing special. The free breakfast was above average and more than filled me for a day at the Jubliee.

Lodge in beautiful mountain on picturesque lake.Posted Jul 9, 2013
Pros: Fantastic and beautiful setting for wedding and as a base for other activities. The staff were courteous and helpful overall.
Cons: Update cabins. Doors didn't open well. Railings loose. Windows wouldn't stay open. Inform guests o fadditional fees and amenities.
Location: We were there for my daughter's wedding and we used the outdoor chapel on the property. My wife fished on the adjacent lake.
If I wasn't disabled, I would have enjoyed my experience more. This is a lodge for outdoor lovers. The wedding chapel area was very difficult to negotiate on an electric scooter and required men to lift scooter over abrupt drops at each end of the bridge leading to outdoor chapel. The cabins are built on a hill side and the rough gravel and steep driveways were just too difficult to manage on a wheelchair or scooter. There were lodge fees that weren't explained when we checked in and amenities of which we were not aware of that we might have utilized and were included in the extra fees. The setting is gorgeous and there are many activities for an active family.

Our Couple GetawayPosted Jun 2, 2013
Tamarack Lodge is out by itself. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to get away from it all in the mountains, yet still have a few people around. The staff is extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had a problem with our door. With one phone call Mike was there in 2 minutes to fixed it. Our studio cabin was everything we were looking for and more. It was clean, comfortable and well-decorated. It has a deck on the front with chairs that we could see the lake from, like all of the cabins. The best way to start the morning with a cup of coffee, in our book. Mammoth is such a beautiful place and staying at the Tamarack Lodge is the perfect way to experience it.
