Tamarack is a wonderful, quiet, cozy place to stay while in Mammoth. I've stayed often. Just one warning - make sure to ask when you book if there is going to be a wedding or big event. There was a wedding on during my last stay that I was not informed of and it was very loud, the bar/restaurant was... More

Hubby and I stayed here after being in the backcountry for almost a week. So maybe that contributed to our absolute adoration of this place (Beds! Showers! Heat!). But it was such a good find. Really cute and cozy inside, a warming rustic atmosphere. Fireplace in the seating area in the lobby. Yes, it is shared restrooms, but we didn't... More

We stayed here 2 nights for a friends wedding and this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! The scenery was breathtaking, the little cabins were adorable, clean and comfortable! We had no complaints here.

Location is on twin lakes in the Mammoth lakes basin. The fall scenery is hard to beat. The bed was comfortable the day bed in the front room very nice. These rooms are small suites. A few tiles needed glueing down i the bath which was small. The are not true as this has been built in 1924 in a... More

We recently went on a trip to the Mono Lake/Mammoth Lake area to see the aspen fall foliage. We stayed one night in a cabin at Tamarack Lodge after staying one night in Mammoth at the Sierra Nevada Resort and Spa (we paid almost exactly the same price for these two hotels). Although we thought the Sierra Nevada Resort room... More

We stayed at the Tamarack Lodge in early October. Apparently it's now owned by Mammoth Resorts, and so they must believe that their mere ownership should garner the hefty fees they charge for their nice (not incredible) cabins and their extremely mediocre "continential" breakfasts. The "deluxe" cabin was nice, and it apparently had been redone. BUT it wasn't outfitted with... More

Upon arrival changed to two deluxe bedroom cabins from one three bedroom historic cabin to better accommodate the family's needs. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to insure our stay was enjoyable. The cabins are located in a beautiful setting with access to many activities close by. The town of Mammoth is five minutes away.... More

We've visited Tamarack twice and thoroughly enjoyed both visits! The lodge was built in the 20's, and the owners have done a great job of updating, while keeping the rustic and charming ambiance. Staff is helpful and friendly, linens were excellent quality, there is a woodburning fireplace in the cabins, adirondack chairs on the decks, and absolutely remarkable scenery in... More

Stayed in the deluxe 2 bedroom cabin-upgraded from one bedroom upon arrival. Nice view of the mountains and peek of the lakes. Very clean and well appointed. Right on Twin Lakes and close to several trails to Lake Mary and beyond. Only about 3 minutes from the Village but away from the condo scene which was nice because we were... More

I only use that term because I just watched a TED talk about how it's overused. In this case - not! I am suffering through a painfully slow internet connection (the *only* drawback of this place I have found, and they said they're working on it) to write a review...it is that good! My cousin and I drove through Tioga... More
