We stayed in Unit 61 (161 on the St. Anton website). We chose it mainly because it looked tastefully decorated in a mountain-type theme. We weren't disappointed. The owners' little touches really made it feel like home from home. I far preferred it to a Homewood Suite unit of similar size we stayed in the following week (and that was pretty good too!).
Firstly each unit has one underground parking space. 161was on the corner of the first floor and had one bedroom. The second floor units are two beds. There were 2 bunk beds in the living/kitchen area. Bigger than they looked on the St Anton website photos and more than adequate for my two teenagers.
The bedroom had a huge bed with an electric blanket plenty of drawers and a small flatscreen TV with a DVD player. Views from the window were directly out onto the slopes near Chair 7.
There was a well equiped kitchen with 4 ceramic rings, oven, microwave, full-size fridge and plenty of cutlery plates, pans etc. We really didn't need anything. There were also lots of items left in the cupboards by previous guests. You could do some serious cooking if you wanted to. There was a breakfast bar plus a dining table for 4.
Furniture was comfortable for 4 people and there was a good sized TV with DVD player plus VCR. There were a few discs in the cupboards and the front desk had a choice of Videos to borrow. Critically there was also an X Box which kept my 13 year old very happy. The gas fireplace helped to make the place feel cosy and the unit had a small balcony facing the slopes.
Elsewhere on he property were two hot tubs (the pool was closed for Winter) and a games room with a pool table.
Most importantly, the St. Anton is situated at the end of the Canyon Lodge parking lot making it the next best thing to ski-in ski-out. It was a short stroll in boots every morning (we rented and checked-in skis at Canyon Lodge every night).
Location wise its a long way up Canyon Blvd. You can catch the shuttle to town otherwise it's a 5 min drive. Too far to walk (especially uphill on the return journey). During the day you could walk to Canyon Lodge and take the village gondola down. Otherwise the only options are the bar/restaurant in the Austria Hof or the facilities at Canyon during opening hours. But any inconvenience is offset by its proximity to the slopes.
We were delighted with the St. Anton. Can't speak for any of the other units - they are decorated in a wide variety of styles - but we loved 161. It'll be hard not to return on our next visit to Mammoth.
Check out the St Anton website for photos of every unit. There's bound to be something that suits every taste.
