The first buildings at Rock Creek Lodge were constructed in the early 1920's. There are still a number of beautiful old rustic cabins available for guests. More recently, the Lodge has added "modern cabins" which range from elegant two story structures with fireplaces to more modest "single wide" style accommodations with front porch, living room/dining area, small kitchen small bathroom and bedroom with lots of storage. I recommend you look carefully at each cabin's description on the website, or call the Lodge. There may be a rustic cabin with fireplace, kitchen and bathroom. The main lodge serves breakfast. The bread for toast and French Toast is home made. The jams are fantastic. The bacon is incredibly flavorful as are the eggs and hashbrowns. The staff offers expert guidance on hiking the many splendid high Sierra trails in Rock Creek and Little Lakes Valley. We stay in early October--fall in the mountains, although there can be snow in September. Days are warm and sunny and nights are cold with brilliant stars and the Milky Way. The Lodge is across Rock Creek from Forest Service Campgrounds. My only criticism is the bright night-time lights on the outsides of many of the Lodge buildings and cabins. They detract from the delightful night sky and sense of total isolation. Be prepared for the 9,400 ft elevation. The first night's sleep can be difficult this high up. You might stay a night in Bishop and at Tom's Place to acclimate.
