We just heard about this place through word of mouth, and decided to go up for some snow play on the spur of the moment. I can't say enough nice things about this place as a family vacation spot. All your meals are included in your room rate, and the food is great. Plus there are snacks and beverages available... More

Our family absolutely loves this lodge. It is a little rustic, but I call it fancy camping because it's not a place to stay for sophisticated luxury. The food is excellent and it's one of the only places we can stay as a family in one lodge room. We have four children and there is a room with two sets... More

Stayed Presidents Day weekend and had a terrific time. Pros: the grounds, hot tub, bonfire, ping pong, foosball, $5 bottles of sparkling wine, free dinner Cons: rooms are dated (but large and functional), lots of kids around (fine if you are not looking for romantic), staff seems to not care that snow makes it very difficult to get to the...

We love this place. It's a bit rustic, but the prices can't be beat. It's totally worth it. It's a family tradition. We come here every winter. The staff is helpful & friendly, the scenery spectacular. I highly recommend for families. It's a great destination for parents & kids alike. The lodge makes it easy to bring your kids -... More

We just returned from our annual trip to the Montecito...Although there was no snow, I have to ask...WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO THIS PLACE? I mean this in a good way! Even though we came up for snow, this is one of the best times we have had! I can't imagine how much you have invested in upgrades (furniture, decor,... More

This place is like a neglected camp in a beautiful forest. We booked as a result of the other tripadvisor reviews. Don't do it! Save your cash. Although the room size is generous, we are looking at acoustic ceilings, no closet doors, and wood paneling. Think Brady Brunch. We are not planning on sleeping tonight as we can hear every... More

We spent two nights here and when I booked it i was worried that it was a little too good to be true. Two night here, including ALL meals, cost less than one night in Yosemite! I am pleased to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find the location was great, the food really nice and the staff friendly.... More

This Lodge was a good value if you want to stay in the park and not drive 50 miles back and forth. We started out in Tulare and spent the day touring in Sequoia and stayed here for one night. We weren't put in the main lodge, but were in another building a short distance from the main lodge--called SugarLoaf... More

3rd year here for Sunday until Thurs AM Thanksgiving (we have turkey on Friday)! $159.00 for a family of 5- with meals included!! Definitely rustic, they don't claim to be 5 star. This year they replaced the carpets, they put in new wooden tables in the dinning area. Kids can roam the lodge (ping pong, fuseball, etc), parents can hike... More
