We just spent 4 days at Cinnamon Bear cabin and my family of 7 had a wonderful time. Thanks to Mike the owner for spending time with my father. He is 93 and remembers much of that area and enjoyed the discussion about guns. My 85 year old mother has wanted to stop by for over 55 years and we... More

I will start by saying that if ya are looking for peace and solitude, a rustic experience and living in the lap of nature look no further. Ya will hear your heartbeat, wind rustling through the trees and the sound of waves hitting on the beach. I would not hesitate to say that this place is a hidden jewel in... More

Cozy knotty pine cabins, delicious meals, excellent service all on the shore of the beautiful Silver Lake. I couldn't believe how nice the staff is! Go hiking or kayaking, gorgeous spot! We can't wait to return next year.

Love the Kit Carson Lodge!. It has a wonderful rustic charm, set on the banks of Silver Lake in an absolutely gorgeous setting. Accommodations include eight hotel rooms with lake views, and a wide variety of cabins with views of the lake or the woods, and which sleep from three to eight people. The cabins have kitchens and outdoor BBQs.... More

My family rented a small cabin for a couple of nights. The location was great as we were very close to Silver Lake. The cabin we stayed in however was not great. We were greeted by an intense propane smell in the cabin. We were told by one of the maintenance workers that this was normal and there was no... More

I really wanted to love this recommended lodge, but our experience was less than wonderful. I was expecting "rustic", not tired and old. Pro: Lovely setting on Silver Lake with the gorgeous Thunder Mountain overhead. Boat rentals and nightly do-it-yourself bonfires were highlights. The lodge itself was attractive and the restaurant deck was comfortable and the service was good. Con:... More

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
