We stopped at Tamarack for one night to sleep over before going to Utica. The place was clean, warm and comfortable. In the morning, we had a nice breakfast. Tim gave us some advice on the nearby hikes and what else to do in Utica/Alpine. Will definitely go there again once we decide to explore that area.

What a great experience. The lodge is family friendly and a great place for all. My son loved it and the inn keepers could hot have been more kind. The rooms are very comfortable and basic. The shared baths are more than adequate and very clean. They even had a bonfire for all the families and marshmallow roasting. Breakfast we... More

Our family had a wonderful stay at Tamarack. Our 9 year old daughter loved playing with the other kids. The owners are so nice and very welcoming. The kitchen is great! We could cook and make friends with others

Rooms have great log beds and a nice cabin look to them. Owners are friendly and gracious. Fabulous communal areas. They have a ping pong table room, library, play area for little ones, games in the living room, fireplace and an excellent group kitchen. It was easy for many families to use it at once, and the dining area has... More

Tamarack Lodge is a very nice, convenient place for a ski trip at Bear Valley. The lodge is just 10 minutes form the ski resort and about 5 minutes form the XC trail head. The innkeepers, Tim and Vicky are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is nice but simple. There is a nice, big kitchen in the breakfast area for... More

Perfect place for snow play and sledding with younger children and toddlers. Very simple continental breakfast is served. Snacks are available. You can then use the kitchen for preparation of other meals.

It's the best family hotel I have visited so far. Vicky and Tim are very friendly and helpful. The place is 10 Minutes away from the ski resort. The only minor issue is the slow wifi. But we are not there for Internet surfing anyway.

My daughter and I stayed at the lodge. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are shared, but were very clean. There's also a shared kitchen that was very comfortable, with a huge fridge that you can put your own groceries into. Overall it met our expectations and we'd stay there again!

Like the people at Bear Valley Ski Resort, Tim and Vicky are very friendly. It's good to have continental breakfast at the lodge so that we can head to the Ski resort much earlier than before. We would recommend it to our friends if they would
