Reviewed March 2, 2012

this is a very homey lodge, where you can build your own fire and has full kitchens so that you can make your own food.

This was our first stay at the Edelweiss. We were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and cleanliness. Although it's rustic, this lodge is a great place to stay as a couple or family. Cabin #1 is a great size for a family of four PLUS a dog. :-) The welcome baskets for humans and your pooch are very welcoming! The cookies from Martha are delicious!!! We would definitely stay again! Thanks Keith and Martha!

We have been staying at Edelweiss Lodge for 10 years. We have stayed in all of the different cabins and each one is comfortable and makes you feel at home. Bring your own groceries to make meals to enjoy by the fire. Most important to us is how dog friendly the lodge is. There is a basket at check in for people (including Marta's amazing cookies) and your pups (cookies for them too from Tailwaggers). We love it here and will definitly be back.

Recently my husband and I needed a place to stay during the holidays in Mammoth Lakes, but we had waited too long to book and after several calls were starting to feel that the odds of finding a place were against us. We had stayed at the Edelweiss Lodge before and found it very pleasant, PLUS they have a doggie day care right on the premiss! We called and to our great surprise and pleasure we were booked into a cozy 1 bedroom with kitchenette. This place totally reminded me of staying at my grandparents summer home in the Santa Cruz Mountains because of the knotty wood paneling and the REAL fireplace, fueled by wood!
We couldn't have been cozier our 2 Jack Russell's were so happy, Marta cared for them as thought they belonged to her. This gal really knows dogs, and Keith is just as knowledgeable. You could not meet a kinder, more helpful couple to manage a lodge and treat you as a VIP. When you walk into your room you are greeted with a dog care basket if you have a dog, and a welcome basket with everything you need to know about the surrounding area and home baked cookies, now tell me where else can you get that kind of personalized treatment? I even ordered a dozen of the oatmeal cookies and they were delivered hours after being backed, YUM YUM
This lodge is down to earth-- nothing pretentious or plastic about this place, we totally loved our stay there and would recommend it to anyone who likes pinecones and puppies.

My husband and I just got back from spending a few days in Mammoth Lakes and LOVED our stay at Edelweiss Lodge. This was not our first trip to Edelweiss, but we continue to be wowed with every visit. Not only do they welcome guests with dog treats for our canine, but we were also spoiled with delicious homemade cookies (that didn't last very long!). The location is perfect for quiet strolls with our dog, but is also conveniently located to everything in town. We would highly recommend Edelweiss for anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable stay away from home!

Extremely dog friendly, cozy wood burning stove perfectly working, spacious one bedroom unit, small kitchen area but well stocked for fixing breakfast and a quick meal, delicious welcome cookies baked by the owner, quiet neighborhood perfect for a walk with your dog...
I would definitely go back next time!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room#2 next to the office.

Edelweiss is not new but it is very clean and very well located if you want to be off the main drags and away from the ski crowds; but still convenient to town and the free ski or summer bus routes. I love being able to walk around the Old Mammotyh neighborhoods and into the Snow Creek meadow when we stay there. My bed was great as was the open out couch; and the kitchen had all we needed. 'No kindling/matches for the firelplace (had to buy a firestarter log) but plenty of wood. Marta's cookies are great, The Hot Tub was clean and quiet. Many of the units share walls, and the walls are thin... so while we did not have noise problems it could happen. Marta and Keith ( a talented artist) are great hosts and will do what it takes to keep you happy. . We once had to cancle and even tho the deposit was not refundable, they held it for us and applied it a over a year later to our next stay. They also welcome dogs and might waive the dog fee once they know you and your dog have not been problems in the past.

Room Tip: Call to discuss your concerns and they wil be very honest in helping you choose the best fit for you...
