We found Tamarack Pines Inn very comfortable and it had everything we needed to enjoy the snow and family. We stayed in the two bedrooms, two bath with living room and kitchen unit in the second floor. The unit is newly remodeled, very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy great meals with the whole family. The kitchen and... More

Unfortunately this was the first time I was able to stay here, it was warm, clean and they provided a great family atmosphere. By the time we left we felt like it was our home away from home. Thank you Tamarack Lodge.

Our room at the Tamarack Pines Inn was very nice. The remodeling has been tastefully done, giving the inn a modern feel. It would have received an excellent review, but I feel the room could have offered a small table and a couple of chairs since it did have a small kitchenette. The drawback was no place to sit. Even... More

Sonia, Thank you for your comments! Great suggestion on the table and chairs. We have added a small bistro table in #32 and comfortable chairs for light meals and coffee, cocktails, reading, etc. We enjoy being family friendly, but the downside can be noise. Sorry that was part of your experience, but I am happy that overall you were pleased.... More

We stayed in the White Bark studio suite, room #32 on the third floor. Be advised there is no elevator but we didn't have a problem taking our luggage and ice chest up and down the stairs. The room was spacious, very clean, and newly and tastefully renovated. We enjoyed opening all 4 windows for good ventilation and views of... More

The owners have done a nice job updating a "quirky" place to a current, clean, straight forward floor plan. The new bathrooms are nicely tiled, kitchen cabs are all new wood cabinets. The REAL draw is the proximity to the ski runs. One eager beaver dad left early, skied a couple hours, and returned before noon to pick up the... More

We were among a large group of friends renting the whole lodge, and really enjoyed our week there. We especially appreciated the convenient location, accessible to day trips to nearby lakes, state parks (Big Trees especially) and hiking trails in a lovely, not-too-crowded area. Appreciated how well each unit was furnished far beyond the basics.

I stayed at Tamarack Pines Inn with SIXTEEN friends for a week; we filled the place; cooked our own meals in the large, central kitchen/dining room. During the day went hiking and in the evening to the Bear Valley Music Festival... it was a great time, significantly enhanced by the ideal location of the Inn and its spacious accommodations for...

My husband and I spent three days in February at the Tamarack Pines Inn on Hwy 4 just downhill from Bear Valley. It has been newly-remodeled and it was lovely. In February in a low-snow year, we were the only people there! Our unit had a good bed, a full kitchen, a nice bathroom, and enough space. A second chair... More

We loved our stay. The Inn is a convenient location to Bear Valley snow skiing, cross country skiing trails and local dining. Stayed for one week without a hitch. The newly remodeled rooms had plenty of hot water, room to cook and relax after a long day of being outdoors... We plan on going back.

Our family of 5 enjoyed a long weekend at Tamarack Pines during the winter. The accommodations were cozy and very comfortable, and we loved being able to prepare meals. We were close to Bear Valley downhill and x-country skiing. The kids really enjoyed the stash of saucers and sleds that they used for snow play right next to the inn.
