“A beautiful escape!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

During a 5 month road trip across the U.S, I had the amazing opportunity to spend a few days at Silver City Mountain Resort. The view from our cabin was spectacular. Surrounded by trees and mountains, our cabin provided great views. We even had our own camp fire. The innkeepers were more the generous and were always willing to help us find our way around. This was definitely my most favorite place to stay while traveling.

My family and I stayed in the Florence Peak Chalet at Silver City in October of 2013. By far our best experience in Sequoia. This was my 6th trip to Sequoia National Park. Although the park is one of my favorites I had never been impressed with the accommodations or food. Silver City is different though. The Chalets are wonderful, spacious, clean, beautiful and well worth the price. Also the pie is the best I've ever had! We will definitely be back and I would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Bring food unless you want to eat at the restaurant grocery stores are an hour away.

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!

Room Tip: Read the descriptions of the cabins carefully so you know what you're getting. Some are obviousl...

a georgeous area surronded my nature. But a chalet that didn't look like it had been mopped the whole season. rodent dropings behind bathroom door, tub, toilet, and kitchen silverware drawer. there were drops of stuck on food spills throughout the lower level. The bathroom downstairs was nasty! I didn't want to walk in there without flip flops!!!! the people working there are nice and the pie was great, but they did not seem very organized. When it came to check in procedures we had to go search for someone, then after we got checked in we had to go find wood in the dark which was supposed to be provided. On top of that there isn't a key to your place. if you stay there check and see if it was cleaned.

Oh this was truly amazing. We stayed in the shooting star cabin, perfect cabin for two. It was perfect and I so want to be able to get in the next time I try and book! We were there during the shutdown so it was even more peaceful than we had expected,

The cabin has one bedroom - a great log fire to keep you warm at night and matches to light the gas mantel lanterns - no electricity from 10pm to midday - which is part of the experience. The fridge is gas - so makes a bit of noise - the kitchen has everything you need including a coffee percolator Outside we had a fire pit - with a big chunk of wood and an axe!!! If you run out of energy there is wood available,

We sat inside and out and just loved the whole thing. Down the hill is a small shop/restaurant which serves great coffee and fruit pies. It serves food on some days - not Tuesday and Wednesday- we did our own cooking,

This is posh camping so do take toilet roll, food and drink - and a torch. It is very easy living and so much better than a hotel outside the park.

And we saw a black bear as well as the redwoods and wonderful stars.

Simply perfect

Room Tip: For two - shooting g star but not for more

My step son and I went up for the solitude, natural beauty and quiet. We found all three and had some fantastic meals as well. Creekside Cabin was great. In these rustic cabins without electricity you can talk up the old business of talking to one another rather than typing. It was refreshing !
The beauty of the area speaks for itself. We found ourselves constantly looking at one another and realizing that words would not do justice to what we were seeing. So we just said nothing.
The staff were very friendly and engaging. I enjoyed to slow pace of things.
I would recommend Silver City to anyone looking for a REAL getaway.

We had a fabulous time, the amenities, folk and food were fantastic. Pie, tea and coffee were excellent. Long winding drive was not as scary or long as expected. Did not see any marmot devouring cars. Would definitely return. Our two year old also had a great time and we all slept well.
