Woods Lodge
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Great for families with small children who want the experience of being in the woods but don't want to camp with small children. Hiking trails begin at your back door and chipmunk feeding as well. Cabins are rustic but have all the needed amenities.

Room Tip: We liked cabin 5.

We have stayed at woods lodge for years, in the fall. We love this place for the perfect setting (on lake george, with a stunning view of crystal crag and the mammoth crest), the quiet, and the convenience. We are hikers who have traded in backpacking for the incredible comfort of coming home after a long day on the trail to electricity, hot showers, a fully albeit eclectically equipped kitchen, and a real bed. Woods has it all if you are ok with rustic ( we love it!) Staff is helpful and friendly if you need anything, but will otherwise leave you alone to enjoy the solitude. Best of all, you can hike out directly from Woods Lodge or take short drives to many trailheads in the mammoth area. Town is 10 minutes away by car if you have to eat out or buy anything, but why do that? You can stay home in your cozy warm cabin, watch the sunset over mammoth crest and cook up an easy dinner every night of your stay....a perfect mountain vacation!

First, be aware that Woods Lodge does not aspire to be a Ritz-Carlton or Four Seasons. There are about 23 cabins scattered about a sunny hillside at 9200 feet elevation overlooking beautiful Lake George, Crystal Crag, and the Mammoth Crest cliffs. The cabins range from about 90 years old to around 20. Some are small, some three bedroom. Some much nicer than others. They are carpeted with wall-to-wall indoor/outdoor carpets. They have full kitchens with an eclectic collection of pots and dishes. Beds are comfortable if a bit on the hard side (we take foam "egg crates" to put under the sheet to make them really comfortable). Furniture is generally old but comfortable. Views from some cabins are nothing short of spectacular. Some cabins are closer together than others but few are as close as for the other lodges at the lakes. Sheets are changed weekly. Clean towels are delivered every other day (most towels were new in 2013, an improvement over the tired old ones in previous years). If there is a problem with anything, just let the friendly staff know and they'll fix it quickly.

A couple cabins are at lake level, with the others ranging from 50 to perhaps 150 feet above lake level. Anyone saying that the trails are dangerous (see previous review) should return to the city immediately. Sure, there sometimes are bears but that goes for every place in Mammoth. Fishing on Lake George can be excellent; trout up to 14" are stocked weekly or nearly so.

So, if you want to be waited upon or have someone else clean your place or make the beds, look elsewhere. If you want a great place for a mountain stay, go here.
