My friend and I made an unscheduled and unplanned trip up to Mammoth Lakes. Located on Lake Mary, is this wonderful lodge. It offers several individual cabins which has a range of one bedroom to four bedrooms. Each cabin faces the lake. Within each cabin there is a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and bedrooms. It was really nice to have... More

We loved the cottages at Crystal Crag Lodge! The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with great stone fireplace and endless fresh dry wood for our use. Our cottage was a 2 bedroom and had a futon in the living area with two chairs, diningroom table to seat 4+ and kitchen had everything we needed. The décor is perfect... More

I read all the reviews before booking and this is my take: rustic? yes, cabins need some updating/fixing? yes, internet/TV? no (this is good), cell phone service? yes, a bit expensive for what you get? yes, curtains a bit thin, letting in light? yes, but you can close off the outside shutters and make it dark,will I come back? Absolutely!... More

This is the second time we've stayed at Crystal Crag Lodge, the first time we were with a family group and took up 3 cabins for 3 nights. This time, just my wife and I returned to celebrate our 30th anniversary. That said, we've seen 4 of the cabins of various sizes and they are wonderful if you are looking... More

Sadly disappointed in our stay at Crystal Crag Lodge. We enjoy rustic - but felt the cabin was over priced for what it was. We rented a beautiful 3 bedroom cabin with a nice deck in Truckee for what we paid for two cramped rooms and no view at Crystal Crag. Our deck (untidy with leaf litter and rather narrow)... More

Our family spends a week here every year. We never tire of the view from our deck. There is so much to do in the area that our stay is different every year. Tripadvisor list this place as a hotel, but it is really a group of individual cabins. The cabins are rustic, but comfortable. they supply everything. The kitchen... More

We stayed here in early October 2013, our second stay. It was wonderful. The area is a beautiful Alpine Lake - Mary. Good fishing, easy boating and just gorgeous scenery. They have a dock and rent boats. It is about 10 minutes to town via old Mammoth road. Sitting at 9000 feet, the air is clean and clear, the stars... More

We stayed at Ruby cabin for 3 nights during Sept. After reading the reviews we expected very basic cabin but were happily surprised. First of all the location is magnificent, right beside lake marry. Our cabin had a lake view and we loved having our own made breakfast on the porch. They had a small pier and we rented a... More

I wanted to take a moment to share this while it is fresh in my mind as we just returned from a week's stay at the lodge. It's hard to know where to begin because it was simply awesome!! First of all, the location of the cabins is right on the south shore of Lake Mary and the beauty of... More

We just returned from a great Hiking weekend in the Mammoth Lakes Basin. There are only 3 Lodges in the upper Lakes Basin and Crystal Crag Lodge is one of them. The Lodge is set along the Lake Shore below Crystal Crag. We prefer staying up in the Lakes Basin versus town because the scenery is breathtaking with Spiky Granit... More
