We stay at the PlumpJack Inn whenever we ski at Squaw, typically twice a year for long weekends. The location couldn't be any better…right in the heart of Squaw Village and an easy walk to the lifts and restaurants. We love the "Carmel in the snow" feel and the staff are always lovely. The breakfasts are hearty, delicious and the... More

We just stayed over New Years at this quaint hotel. During less busy times I would imagine the hotel as less hectic. The common areas are quite small. The hot tubs are less desirable than expected but still a nice amenity. The rooms are basic but very comfortable. The staff, for the most part, are friendly. I expected them to... More

We actually were married at PlumpJack the previous year and both decided there isn't a better place to celebrate. Our pleasant surprise was that so much of the staff remembered us. From Renee at the amazing breakfasts they serve, the front desk (too many to name!) who were more than helpful with setting up the romantic room and assisting with... More

I wasn't able to stay at the resort because we were coming in for just one night to attend my niece's wedding and the Inn had a two-night minimum stay. We ended up staying at the nearby Red Wolf Lodge, which I've reviewed separately. My review is of the wedding thrown by PlumpJack. The wedding venue was perfect, the service... More

Yes, while the king fire was raging nearby, we attended a wonderful wedding celebration at this very cosy and service rich historic inn sept. 25 to 28, 2014.

The staff at Plumpjack is obliging, and our room was large and pleasant. The bathroom was roomy and attractive except for the toilet, which was old. And it would have been more pleasant if we could have opened the windows easily. However, since we were only staying for one night, we did not inquire about the windows. The parking is... More

We have been staying at this wonderful boutique hotel for approximately 25 years. We always return when we want to relax, hike (up to top via Shirley Lake, free ride down on gondola). walk and just sit by the pool. There is a wonderful four mile walk around the entire meadow/golf course which is well worth your time. Breakfast outside... More

Lovely location, friendly staff, nice little pool and outdoor jacuzzi hot tubs. Food was good, not amazing, breafast buffest was the same everyday - not a huge amount of choice. The rooms were pretty standard, nothing special. They don't have AC so it can get really hot at night, but there are ceiling and desk fans to help cool you... More

We had a fantastic stay here. First of all, they clearly contribute to good causes - I "won" this stay at a charity fundraiser and even though I was therefore a non comp guest, they were incredibly helpful when I had to make last minute changes to my original reservation due to a recent death in the family. Fabulous location... More
