Gold Country / High Sierra Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This immaculate 3 bedroom plus a loft unit is the largest floor plan in one of Mammoth's newest complexes. Situated on the 16th fairway of Sierra Star golf course, and just a short distance from Eagle Express (Chair 15), the unit is centrally located for both your winter and summer activities. Beautifully decorated with art and other amenities, it gives a new meaning to the term 'mountain elegance'. The unit includes a fully equipped kitchen, granite counters, and a private balcony accessed through the dining room with a gas barbecue, Solstice 15 will make you feel right at home. With sleeping for 10 comfortably (12 with the rollaways), this unit has been designed to easily accommodate 2 large families, or 3 couples with lots of kids. Relax in the evenings with your whole group around the fireplace and a 42' LCD flat screen TV, or send the kids off to their own rooms to enjoy their favorite program on their own private 32' LCD flat screen TVs.

The upstairs master suite is beautifully decorated to give you a homey feeling. It features a sleigh type queen size bed, wall mounted flat screen TV with remote, fabulous furniture including a full dresser and night stands, handpicked decorations, walk in closet with plenty of hangers, a private balcony (separate from the balcony off the dining room) and a spectacular master bathroom that would please anyone's taste. The very spacious master bath features dual sinks, a full shower with frameless glass that is easily large enough for a couple and a separate full size bathtub.

The second bedroom is equally decorated to give you a warm welcome. The room features a king size bed, plentiful drawer space, night stands, a spacious wardrobe closet also with lots of hangers, a wall mounted flat screen TV with remote, decorative bears, beautiful wall decorations, DVD player with remote, a second bed and much more to make your stay pleasant, convenient and restful.

The third bedroom is also decorated to give you a warm feeling. The room features a sleigh type queen size bed, plentiful drawer space, night stands, a spacious wardrobe closet also with lots of hangers, a wall mounted flat screen TV with remote, beautiful wall decorations and much more.

The loft is totally amazing. At one end of the loft is a queen size captains bed with lots of drawer space under the bed for all your needs. (Kids love the captains bed.) At the other end of the loft is a twin over full bunk bed that is also great for the kids. In between is ample space for a rollaway bed. There are two closets for the loft with plenty of hangers, lots of shelf space and ample space to play.

About Mark

Born in 1953, I was always fascinated with skiing which I finally learned in 1975. During my many trips to Mammoth, I fell in love with the area and vowed to own my own place there some day when I could afford it. My dream eventually came true. As a youngster, I was fascinated with electronics and studied it all the time. The hobby was expensive so I got my first job at age 14 washing dishes to support my hobby. Soon thereafter, I moved up to a wholesale bakery where I worked 20-30 hours per week to support my hobby while going to school full time. Upon graduation from high school, I got my first job in the electronics industry installing and repairing car telephones. This was in the days long before cellular telephones when the car phone took up most of the trunk of the car and cost thousands of dollars. Soon thereafter, I started working on two way radios where I worked on communications systems for the US Marshall, police departments and thousands of businesses. At age 21, I started my own company selling and servicing two-way radios. To this day, I am still running the same operation and love what I do. The only unfortunate aspect is that I have not figured out how to do it in Mammoth and make enough money to live in Mammoth full time.

Mark purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mark chose Gold Country / High Sierra

Although I already owned a unit at The Village At Mammoth, I wanted something that would provide a more relaxed atmosphere and accommodate a larger number of people. We often invite friends and family to visit with us at Mammoth so we quickly outgrew our unit at The Village. However, most units in Mammoth have outdoor parking which in winter time is a major hassle whenever it snows, so we wanted the heated underground parking. Although I like the convenience of The Village, the large amount of activity often prevented us from truly being able to relax in Mammoth. Solstice is peaceful, quiet and remote enough that we encounter wildlife that does not visit The Village. We wanted to teach our little girls about the great outdoors which is in far greater abundance at Solstice.

What makes this condo unique

When skiing at Mammoth, Solstice is the ultimate for rest and relaxation. Located on 16th hole of the Sierra Star Golf Course, it is a short 1 minute drive or 2 minute free shuttle ride to the Little Eagle Lodge from the bus stop located about 500' from the condo. The convenience of the location makes it easy to get around town to eat out or we can cook in the fully equipped kitchen in our unit. With the playing cards, poker chips, numerous games, food supplies, the custom artwork, large flat screen TVs, DVDs and all the other amenities we put in our unit, it is truly our home away from home, a place to rest, relax and enjoy! All our guests receive a free surprise gift to which our guests claim that it is a true 'deal maker!' Solstice is a beautiful new condominium project, placed in the middle of the Sierra Star golf course, and just a short ride from Eagle Express (chair 15). Surrounded by woods, the complex is situated between the 16th fairway where every unit has wonderful views, and the clubhouse conveniently located across the street. For access to the slopes, or just getting around town, leave the car at home, and catch the free town shuttle from the nearest stop, just a 1/2 block from your front door. The 3 bedroom plus a loft units all have a convenient ground level entrance which leads to the main, 2nd floor living area, and a 3rd floor master bedroom. Amenities of Solstice include a year-round outdoor Jacuzzi, secure underground parking with elevator access to the main level and clear crisp mountain air!

HIGHLY Recommended! Great Place for Friends to Gather!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3+ families with children ranging from 15 years old - 2 years old. This was a perfect place with great amenities for everyone! We had 12 people in total and everyone got a bed. We didn't even have to pull out the rollaway bed! We loved the fact that the unit was so nice and close to everything. The unit was well equipped with linen, towels, toiletries, etc. like a hotel but also, had the personal homey touches of a well stocked kitchen, board games, detergent, dishwashing liquid, etc. We all LOVED the place and treated it like it was our own home.

Communication with the owner was excellent and we called him twice during our stay. Both times he was available and very friendly & helpful. We are considering making this an annual trip among friends! I highly recommend Solstice 15!

loved this condo

  • 5 of 5

we had a large group and everyone loved this place! it's roomy and so inviting. pantry had all the necessities and we loved the snacks that were provided. all the spaces were well used and we didn't feel cramped at all. We didn't think the underground indoor parking garage would be that much of a game changer but oh it was. it was much easier (and warmer) to put the chains on. there were 2 downsides to this place though. one is that, yes it fits up to 12-15 people but there's only 2 parking spaces and it's impossible to find any parking unless you drive two vans, steal someone else's space and pray they don't tow you, or you go to mammoth rv and pay for it. when i emailed the concierge, i was told we may be able to park in overflow parking lot at the golf course but was told there's no condo parking there whatsoever or else they will tow. two, sharing 2 bathrooms with a large group of people was a bit of a struggle, but we managed. otherwise, we loved this place and would definitely recommend for groups of no more than 8-10 adults

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Soltice 15 was perfect for our large family. We had 4 boys aged 2 - 11, 8 adults, and a Labrador. We all fit comfortably and enjoyed the entire week together. Being right on the golf course was a bonus as the oldest boys got to participate in a kids night on the golf course and had a lesson as well. We were close enough to town to enjoy our evenings out but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet. Definitely will rent again when we do a large family trip.

Only downside was the couple in the condo below us complained a few times that we were two loud when coming up and down the stairs. Apparently the condo below us was placed right under the main entry way staircase. We had a lot of folks coming and going at different times so we were coming in and out a lot. I felt bad for the folks below us but there was not much we could do given the placement of the entry way. Other then that we had a great time and enjoyed the entire week in this wonderful condo.

The reservation process was pleasant as well and the front desk management set up was superb. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a large pet friendly condo in Mammoth.

Great Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Solstice 15 was perfect for our group of people. We were able to grill, cook, lounge about, decompress in the jacuzzi, play games, and just have a great vacation. The master bathroom was very luxurious as a bonus.

The location close to the lifts and to the markets was a bonus. The front desk employees were always prompt to answer any questions I had via telephone and even made it easy to check in early when we arrived. Best cabin I've rented hands down.

It's All That!

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us, 6 adults and 8 children, which is hard to find accommodations for. Solstice 15 meet our needs. The adults were able to have space and the kids were able to have their space as well as beds to sleep in. The entry flight of stairs to living area was somewhat of a surprise but didn't hinder any of our activities. The condo was maintained very well and stocked for all of our cooking needs. The photos were very accurate. The surrounding areas gave the children opportunity to explore and enjoy the out of doors. The technology in the condo gave the younger set the ability to Wi-Fi into all their needs. The Cable Company's signal was somewhat weak which caused a few streaming difficulties. Having linen service and cleaning service was a major plus for all of us. We would highly recommend Solstice 15 for anyone adventuring to Mammoth Lakes. We would love to return in any future Mammoth vacation plans.

Perfect weekend away

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our group of friends. We have rented numerous other condos over the years and this is without a doubt one of our favorites. The bedroom layout worked great and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could need (we had 3 cooks among us, that all agreed it was the best kitchen we've rented). Beds were very comfortable with plenty of extra pillows, blankets etc. Kids loved the bunk bed and all the games that were provided. We were only there for a quick weekend but will definitely go back.
