We really loved visiting these cabins at the end of a long and winding road up into the Sierras. Our cabin didn't have electricity, the bathroom/shower was in a shared building and it got quite cold for a place with only a wood stove for heat, but we enjoyed every moment of our 2-night stay. The title "resort" might be a little misleading since this is definitely different from most peoples' idea of a resort, but it was just what we wanted. The staff was small (our visit was in September) since the cabins shut in October, I think. The three staff folks were stretched kind of thin since most of the cabins were full on our weekend. However, they all were attentive, polite and helpful. Apparently, the current owner lives in Eastern Europe, but we hope he pays attention to the property, keeps it up and hires enough people to staff it especially in the summers since we would like to visit again. The surrounding valley of Mineral King is so spectacular!
