We just returned from a pleasurable stay at the Kit Carson Lodge. We now understand why so many people make staying here a yearly summer tradition. For three days we were away from the hustle and bustle of city life and it was wonderful. We enjoyed having no TV and no cell service. Being freed of screens, we enjoyed the... More

We had very nice dinner here after spending the day paddling on nearby Silver Lake. What a great ambiance this place has. The outside deck overlooks Silver Lake and the peaks that surround it. The dinner was excellent. The chicken Marsala was delicious. It's nice they give you enough potatoes to sop up the sauce. The dinner salad had a... More

This is not a five star hotel, but it is a five star experience. We just returned from two glorius days in the high Sierras. We used a Living Social Deal that included two nights a free boat rental and welcome basket. The welcome basket inckuded a map, bottled water, snacks and two walking sticks. We were pleasantly surprised to... More

My Aunt & I just stayed in a quaint cabin named Cottontail. With two twin beds, it was just what we needed. Just needed a place to lay or heads to sleep & shower in the morning. Beds were very comfortable & bedding was top notch. I'm hoping/planning to get back there soon. My Thanks to Karen for helping me... More

We were planning on camping, but the hard rains made us reconsider. We decided to see if there were rooms available here. The rustic and charming lodge had a roaring fire, we were drenched. A friendly young man greeted us and invited us to warm up by the fire. We inquired about a vacancy and happily booked a lodge room.... More

This is my 4th visit to Kit Carson Lodge but this is my first review. On this visit I stayed 2 nights in a cabin and 2 nights in one of the lakefront hotel rooms, my favorite of all of Kit Carson's accommodations. What I love about KCL besides the beautiful Silver Lake setting are the restaurant, and the traditional... More

Stayed there a couple of weeks ago for the second time. This time in a separate cabin. These cabins were most likely great once upon a time but not without adequate electrify, updated beds and furnishings, and decor. The food service has also declined from our previous visit which we praised the chef. This time mor like pre prepared from... More

We went up here for the day to relax on a Sunday. We ate at the restaurant. When we got there you can smell a great burger and it was, so were the fries. Well worth going to eat. We walked around the cabins and the shore line. Would be a nice place to spend a week, hike and fish.... More

Rustic with a style all it's own. We have been going up there for YEARS. Great for all ages. Marvelous restaurant, store and staff. SO many things to do in the immediate area. Lake is peaceful and canoes and kayaks available for rent. Horses across the lake. NO, you can't use a hair dryer because it will blow a fuse.... More

Quaint cottages with balcony overlooking a beautiful lake. Movies under the stars and an excellent restaurant with friendly staff. The general store is fun too . Even have Wi-Fi way up there. The manager went out of her way to make sure it was working. One slight problem is the fact that no hair dryers can be used in the... More
