Visited Tamarack lodge for 1 night as a stop off from a long drive. We booked direct to the hotel and already had brilliant customer service before we arrived. Staff very friendly and helpful. There was lots of snow and they helped us get our luggage up to the lodge which was great. The fire was already on for us... More

I was there for a Spring Wedding 2 weekends ago and reserved a one room, historic cabin. The staff at Tamarack is THE BEST! The manager Matt, made my cross country trip very easy and as a solo female traveler, put me at ease discussing the location of the cabin, etc. All of the staff was friendly and went out... More

Tamarack Lodge is magical. My husband and I spent three wonderful nights there in one of the historic 1-bedroom cabins. Since the cabins were listed as “historic” instead of the renovated “deluxe” cabins I was expecting it to be pretty rustic, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodations. The bed felt like it had a pillow-top mattress... More

First of all, we did not reach the hotel until around 1:30am after a 6 1/2 hour drive. It is outside of Mammoth several miles and it is so rural that we almost hit 2 deer. It is dark and dangerous at night with the windy roads. The roads were extremely narrow and you have to go through a campground... More

Dear SR0422, Thank you for your valuable feedback. I’m very sorry to hear about the culmination of events that led to an unsatisfying stay for you. I’m also disappointed that I was given no opportunity to make this right for you. We are located 2 miles from Mammoth city center up a well-marked two lane road that does not require... More

Tamarack Lodge is an amazing, historical property, set right on the Twin Lakes. Both the Lodge Rooms and Cabins have that rustic charm, but comfort of everything you would need in your home. If you are looking to a fancy "Westin" type experience, you will want to look elsewhere. Tamarack Lodge is located outside of the Main town of Mammoth,... More

I rented a studio cabin at Tamarack Lodge and Resort for 2 nights. The cabin was inexpensive, yet luxurious and the property was well maintained and situated right near a lake. The lodge was a great place to have breakfast and drop in at night for a drink. The staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful. Jeremy Gilman at the... More

Samantha is a perfect hostess with area information, knowledge of places to visit, and offers of complete comfort. She prepares a wonderful, better than average continental breakfast, and most importantly has an everlasting smile... With the care received from "Sammy" you'd think she owns the place!!! Fantastic and comfortable accommodations with an employee that shines among the stars!

Set in the midst of fragrant pines, the quaint rustic cabins and lodge at Tamarack Lodge and Resort beckon to those that crave that true mountain experience. With the view of the mountain lake and nestled among the towering pine trees, a stay here is a beautiful experience. The staff is extremely kind, helpful and humorous. The cabins and lodge... More

We visited in early May 2015 and there was no snow, but it was still cold and crisp. Beautiful lodge in Mammoth. Great rooms in the lodge plus the cabins are wonderful if you want a little more privacy. The lodge is quiet and rustic - if you like chain hotels, this is not the place for you. It's clean,...

I wanted to plan a short get-a-away for the family (5 of us), including an early jump on the fishing season. Booked a suite at the Tamarack, but due to an electric upgrade that could have affected the suite, they placed us in a deluxe cabin (#30) at no extra cost. It was exceedingly comfortable and had an amazing view... More
