Mammoth Mountain Chalet #6 is perfect for families and located in the heart of the winter and summer activity areas in Mammoth Lakes, California. This 'A' frame cabin sits within the Inyo National Forest just 100 yards from Mammoth Mountain ski area's Main Lodge, Chair Lift #1 and main gondola. Winter visitors can enjoy ski in/ ski out immediate access to 'first tracks', equipment rental, ski school, day care,ticket facilities and retail services and literally 'ski in' for lunch and at the end of a wonderful day, all without the worries of traffic, parking or winter access. Summer visitors can walk across the parking lot, catch a bus to the 'gateway to the wilderness' Red Meadows facilities, rent a mountain bike and traverse the mountain trails or just enjoy a panoramic gondola ride to the summit of Mammoth Mountain. Chalet #6 offers all these benefits and a charming, cozy vacation home away from home featuring all the living amenities including full kitchen, dining area, wood burning stove and an ample deck area to sit, relax and enjoy the views of the summit and the surrounding Inyo Forest and in the summer running stream right below deck.. So join us and experience the wonders of Mammoth Mountain.
Been coming up here for years with friends, and this time made it a family trip. Chalet #6 is cozy and conveniently located to the Adventure Center (a must with kids), mountain bike trails, and Reds Meadow. Beautiful views from the deck made it hard to leave each morning, but they are sure to be savored in the afternoon as well. A great place!
The home provides your basic necessities and a home away from home kind of feeling. It's clean, well-maintained, and also has the ability to sleep more people than noted.
We stayed here over the President's day weekend and absolutely loved it. It's an ideal location: right next to the main lodge and great sledding. It was very comfortable and very neat, and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!
Love the wilderness cabin feel of the chalet. Rustic but comfortable. Nice front porch to relax and read. We walked to main lodge for breakfast and the adventure center to rent mt bikes and take the gondola up. Great alternative to all the condos in town.
We stayed here for Thanksgiving and it couldn't have been better! The location is second to none, you can't beat the views and proximity to lifts, especially with little ones. Our boys simply can't get enough of Mammoth, and it's an easy walk (or ski) right to the lifts. No need to wait in line and spend $$ for lunch on the hill, it's easy to ski right back to chalet 6 and enjoy lunch on the deck.
Chalet 6 is cozy, we've been in both the summer and the winter and continue to return every year. We're looking forward to another trip this month!
After searching for our next summer trip, we emailed the Chalets and got a quick response from Romie. A few questions later, we were booked. The Chalets are smack in the middle of some of the greatest hiking and sightseeing around. With town just a 5 minute drive away, we could pick up supplies as we needed and still feel like we were in the middle of mother nature.
Driving from the Bay Area, the extra 90 minutes or so to get there was well worth it. (Sorry Tahoe lovers, but the insane views and trails in the Eastern Sierras are tops in my book any day of the week. 25 years experience saying that)
If your on a plant based diet, vegans have some great options for groceries, pizza (always important) and the Stellar Brew and Café rocked a tasty vegan wrap and baked goods. We also have a small pooch and let me say, this whole area is very pet friendly. (crazy important for us) All the trails we went on allowed dogs on leash. Even on the local shuttle bus (with muzzle) to the Devils Postpile Monument. How cool is that??
Romie and Kris were terrific in helping us decide our various hikes and drives. And gladly put up with tons of questions. We have to say that if your planning a vacation, having people that care and know the area well is a huge benefit-A BIG plus for staying here.
When a small issue came up with our chalet, Kris was right there to remedy the situation fast. And our vacation continued without skipping a beat.
Spending a full week at the Mammoth Mountain Chalets was a blast, but it went by way too fast.
We plan to remedy this issue by another stay sometime soon!
Thanks Romie and Kris for making our stay one we will never forget.
# An extra 2 hour drive from the Bay Area vs. Tahoe (the length of a movie for goodness sake) is nothing compared to the beauty of this region.
# Super pet friendly unlike other areas.
# Food is a little more pricey here, so pack along your “must haves” and the occasional run to the store is a little more bearable. (we tend to buy from local owned stores-But there is a Vons in town too)
# Each chalet is individually owned. So some amenities may differ from unit to unit. However we loved the fact we had our own home with four walls and not stuck in some hotel with others right next to you. Made you feel much more relaxed and at home.
# Bring binoculars as some of the best views are right nearby.
# While we love the outdoors, but the included Wifi, a hot shower and favorite chilled drinks was terrific.
