“Great Fishing Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

A convenient place for a weekend of fishing. With 2 lakes within walking distance and a third a few minutes close by couldn't ask for a better location. Having a kitchenette was great since June lake has less restaurants then Mammoth. A separate bedroom was very quiet and the futon style couch was perfect for our son. Will definitely stay there again.

Set in amazing peacefull and pictoresque location. The rooms are perfect. Big, spacious with living room and kitchen. Located cca 20min from Mammoth Lakes and 2 hours from Yosemite national park. Shame we spent only 1 night here.

We tried two rooms. Both had gas leaks. We stayed in the one with the least smell and turned off the gas to the stove. The wall heater only worked after the management came and lit the pilot. Very old place with very very nice staff. Pleasant views of Gull Lake and surrounding mountains. Walking distance to downtown June Lake's restaurants.

I took my 2 year old son for a late season ski trip to June Mtn. What a week! We arrived at Gull Lake Lodge with very modest expectations based on price and our lack of experience with the area. I could not have been happier when we walked into the room and it was spacious, featured a full kitchen and sitting area and good size bathroom and bedroom. Linens were suitable and clean. The next day when I got to chat with management (we arrived late and picked up key in envelope) my sense of comfort and faith that I had made a good choice for our visit was affirmed. Great restaurant recommendations both in June and Mammoth. Good folks.

Added bonus, it is a short walk to a playground for little ones, short drive to June Mtn ski area, short walk to the gorgeous Gull Lake with picnic areas and short walk to the Tiger Bar, a fun, easy spot for burgers, beer and... crayons if you have a little one.

I am already planning our next visit and we will hope Gull Lake Lodge has room for us again. One thing I will remember is I think they have a Smoke-Free room -- we had no issue with smoke odor or any other odor but it is something to remember especially during a busy summer, I would think.

Overall assessment is that they are very conscientious and interested in problem solving and meeting your needs as a guest. So any issues that might come up would be immediately and readily addressed.

This review is very, very overdue. My husband and I stayed five nights in June 2013 as a base for hiking in the Yosemite high country. It's a reasonable drive from YNP but we enjoy driving (even on the other side of the road) so I didn't think that was a problem, others may find it a bit far.
We had a wonderful stay, the kitchen was brilliant. When they say "fully-equipped" they mean it. Pots and pans and crockery and an oven as well as a microwave and a full-size fridge. Combined with the barbeques on the deck, it's a great place for self-catering. We could stock enough provisions to make our lunches for our day hikes and also fill and chill our water-bladders (much more difficult to chill 3 L bladders with only a bar fridge).
The accommodations were very spacious, I loved having the separate bedroom and living room and we weren't tripping over our bags and packs all the time. The beds were really comfortable, the shower water pressure was good and the hot water was plentiful.
It's a short walk to the June Lake village for groceries and meals (I recommend the Sierra Inn and Cathy's Candies).
I would love to come back for a winter visit, I've seen the pictures of snow-covered Gull Lake and would love to see it with my own eyes.

Another reviewer said it best, "much more like an apartment than a motel."
Our rooms were clean and spacious. The mattress's in our double were a bit worn out.
The management was helpful and kind.
The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to avoid eating out at every meal.
Definitely NOT the Double Eagle, but it's not as pricey either.

I recommend the lodge for it's location and price.

My family will be back.

Jan myself and our dogs have just spent our 39th year staying at the lodge. The rooms are clean and keep up, The staff is always help full and willing to give tips on day trips or how the fishing is doing.
If you like fishing or just enjoying the great outdoors, you will not do better when in June.
