About John Sikora

We (John and Jann) enjoy visiting Mammoth for a 3 or 4 day weekend from the Placerville area. As a couple, we appreciate nature and enjoy multiple outdoor activities. Every time we visit we end up seeing new sights and having great experiences. The decorations in our condo reflect our fascination with the beauty of nature.

John Sikora purchased this condo in 2005

Why John Sikora chose Gold Country / High Sierra

John has vacationed at Mammoth since the 1970's, drawn by the spectacular skiing, fishing and winter & summer sports. But now, we both enjoy fishing and the many summer activities. Mammoth Lakes area has much to offer in outdoor recreation no matter what season it is.

What makes this condo unique

The streams that flow into Mono, June and Crowley Lakes and the beautiful Lakes Basin provide exciting fishing resulting with huge trout for the dinner plate! Located closer to the condo, Agnew Meadows has catchable Golden trout. The area also holds the rare Tiger trout. We also love to go biking on the paved, gravel and dirt bike trails around Mammoth and hiking on the many trails up to the breathtaking high mountain lakes. We also enjoy soaking in the warmth of the natural hot springs east of Mammoth in the evenings.

Lovely long weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time and it was close enough to everything, just a short drive. Really cozy and a fully equipped kitchen. Comfy bed and pull out couch, plenty of linens, great hot tub just across the parking lot, nice decor. And we had fantastic snow late in the season.

Some recommended spots: The Stove or Base Camp Cafe for breakfast, June Lake Brewing (a bit of a drive, but a gorgeous one in good weather) for beer, snacks and beers at Mammoth Brewing Company, Roberto's Mexican Cafe for Mexican food.

It's 4 stars instead of 5 because we had an issue with the cleaners when we got there, which was promptly and satisfactorily taken care of by the owner. Also, not the fault of the unit or the owner, we thought we could walk to Canyon Lodge to go skiing but Mammoth Mountain closed that side of the mountain the week before, so we had to go over to Main Lodge. But the walk to the bus was only about 15 minutes (in gear), not too bad.

Owner quickly remedied any issues we had

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this condo really cares about the guests that rent his condo. If anyone who rents it ever has any issues, make sure to let him know while you are still there. This guy is on top of it which is rare these days.

Our Favorite Place to Rent In Mammoth!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting with John & Jann for over 5 years now. The condo is still our absolute favorite place to rent and I always check if it's available first. The new kitchen is great, so much more functional. (Soft close cabinets! Why aren't all cabinets made that way??)

It's the perfect get away, fantastic parking right in front, fully stocked, always spotless and you can't beat the location. The walk up the hill to Canyon Lodge is the best warm-up for a long day of riding and the jacuzzi is fantastic to come home to at the end of the day. Thanks again John & Jann for always being so welcoming, and quick to respond, looking forward to staying with you again soon.
