Many of the reviews here dwell on the breakfast, wifi and resort fee. Enough has been said so I will skip those. We stayed in a deluxe one bedroom cabin for three nights over Christmas. In contrast to other properties in Mammoth, this lodge is deep in the woods next to a pair of lakes and towering cliffs. The scenery is exquisite. There has been heavy snow so far this winter and nearly two feet fell while we were there. Our cabin was up a steep slope and the only access was by hiking through the snow. Thankfully the staff kept paths groomed, but if you have problems with mobility the cabins might not be wise in winter. The cabin itself was nice. Its large deck was covered in snow, but must be very pleasant in summer. The main room was about 250 square feet with a table for four, a sofa bed and an overstuffed chair. A gas fireplace threw out plenty of heat. The main room floor is wood but the entrance area is stone with a bench and a row of hooks for hanging coats. This area was large enough for three of us to stow our winter gear without tracking snow into the rest of the cabin. The bedroom was large with a desk, armoir and end tables. The bedroom has many drawers but somewhat limited space to hang clothing. The bed was king size, with a poor quality mattress. Ditto for the sofabed. The kitchen was large enough for two people, barely. Cookware and crockery were adequate and housekeeping replaced our dish towels each day. You do need to bring your own paper towels and I recommend bringing your own ground coffee because the packets they provide are designed for the tiny coffee maker found in a hotel room, yet the coffee maker is full size (it has a permanent filter so no need to bring paper filters). The main room of the lodge was cozy but cramped when the holiday crowd all showed up at once; otherwise it was very enjoyable. A wood fire was kept burning throughout the day and a wood stove in the corner kept the room toasty. My wife asked them to make up a cheese platter and it was beautifully done and delicious. We ate dinner at the restaurant on Christmas Eve and it too was excellent. Like everything to do with the Lodge, it was quite expensive but at Tamarack you are paying for the location. If you favor peace and beauty over amenities, and if you don't mind paying for it, I doubt you will find a better place to stay in Mammoth.
