“A dog-friendly peaceful haven”
Reviewed October 1, 2007

Our family of three made a last minute trip at the end of Sep. 2007 to Mammoth to enjoy the fall aspen foliage. We were fortunate enough to stay at the Edelweiss Lodge. It is indeed a very pet-friendly place since human and canine guests each receive a welcome basket which includes fresh-baked cookies. The homemade gingerbread spice cookies are especially yummy. Proprietors Marta and Keith both went beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and give us local information on where to walk the dog, find peak foliage, etc. Note that Marta also runs a small pet-sitting business which would be very convenient for guests with dogs who visit for skiing. However, I never heard any barking. Edelweiss Lodge is located beyond the proliferating condos on Old Mammoth Road, in a peaceful neighborhood which is a 5 minutes walk from Mammoth Creek. From the exterior, the lodge is alpine rustic, with some cabins and a 4-plex suite building. Our suite was well-equipped with a wood stove (not required for heating), living room, kitchen (full size fridge), bath, and separate king bedroom. WiFi internet access was free, and the room had satellite or cable TV. The king bed was covered with a handmade quilt, and the sofabed was supplied with an additional foam pad . We enjoyed a special fall rate of $84 per night (+$15 pet fee - which included treats, dog bowls, covers for furniture, and a sleeping pad). In our family's opinion , Edelweiss Lodge is a great deal, and we look forward to returning in the future.

We stayed three nights at the Edelweiss Lodge, Mammoth Lakes. it was a cozy one bedroom lodge, with full cable TV and complimentary wifi access, hot tub and laundry facilities. We appreciated the complimentary tea, coffee and chocolate chip cookies and the various information leaflets on hiking trails in the surrounding areas as that was one of the acitivities we were planning on doing. It had a fully equipped kitchen as well, and very efficient central heating (which we appreciated given the brisk temperatures!)
We had forgotten a shirt when we checked out and they were nice enough to notify us and send it along to us at a forwarding address - great service!
The rates were great too - we paid $115 a night. Definitely recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Mammoth’s top choice for a personal lodging experience . The Edelweiss has been a Mammoth tradition since 1957. We pride ourselves with maintaining the charm of a 1950’s knotty pine lodge while still enjoying the modern conveniences of today. Fully equipped kitchens, wood burning fireplaces, cable TV and free WIFI give you the comforts of home with the charm of a time gone by. Located in a quiet area of town known as “Old Mammoth”. We have six buildings that comprise the lodge sitting among the beautiful Jeffery Pines. We are happy to provide you with a selection of 10 cabins and suites, each unit is slightly different and special in its own way. We are flexible and can accommodate a one night stay to an extended vacation. We are happy to book all or part of our lodge for family reunions, and group getaways. Guests are greeted with homemade cookies and a personal experience by local onsite owners. We are the perfect location to get away and enjoy all the outdoor activities Mammoth has to offer as well as the gateway to the beautiful Yosemite National Park. ... more   less
