About Mary Beth Ericson

These condos are owned by two SoCal families who love Mammoth for its idyllic weather, breath-taking beauty and unique vibe. We love to spend as much time at our homes in Mammoth as we can with our children and friends enjoying Mammoth's year-around sports, activities, festivals. And when we can't be there, we love having the opportunity to share our homes with you! In the summer we hike, bike, kayak and fish. We live for the winters, of course, when we take every opportunity to ski, board, sled and play hard. Both families had visited Mammoth for many years but as soon as we saw Sonenalp and its ideal location we knew these homes were perfect for us!

Why Mary Beth Ericson chose Mammoth Lakes

For several years we searched for the perfect home away from home in Mammoth. After looking at countless properties we started to think we'd never find our dream home. But we lost our hearts to Sonenalp #3 the first time we drove up to the wide front porch and warm wooden double doors. The location is ideal to discover all that Mammoth mountain has to offer with easy access to winter slopes & summer hikes and an easy downhill stroll to town. In addition to the great location, the condo was built with the utmost attention to detail. All materials, fixtures and appliances are top of the line. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream and the open floor plan is perfect for entertaining and socializing. We've updated the furnishings with high-end furniture and luxurious linens so that it lives like a home. Lastly, because the complex only houses 4 units in the building, this condo feels more like a single family residence than a condo. We know that you will enjoy our Mammoth home just as much as we do.

Comfortable and Spacious Mammoth Condo

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay with the family, large open kitchen and living room. Great location, close to the village, Canyon Lodge, and the Mammoth Lakes Basin. Our dog was very excited that he was allowed at this Condo.

Great Property and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic family vacation thanks to Mammoth and the comfort we enjoyed at this superb condo. Everything is as described and it's even nicer than the pictures depict. Excellent communication with the owner - her response time is very quick. We really enjoyed our stay and we would rent again.

I loved how all my questions were answered by the owner.

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place and so did my kids. The fans were great since the air conditioner wasn't strong enough to cool off the place alone. Opening windows allowed the breeze to flow through much nicer. Thank you for a five star experience!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you like our online Guest Guide! We worked hard to include all the details that guests might need to plan their stay. We love that the Guide makes it possible for guests to access check-in instructions easily and go straight to our homes without having to stop somewhere for keys or coordinate with a manager to check in. Hope you also had a chance to check out the Adventure, Refined blog with useful tips and tricks for making the most of your stay in Mammoth!

Beautiful and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous Condo feels more like a single family home. It is simply a Beautiful place to stay. Every little detail seems to be taken care of Mary Beth responds quickly and is helpful in making your stay there as comfortable as possible. Very nicely decorated the furnishings are comfortable and enough seating for all of our family. Kitchen has everything labeled so you know where to put things back. Very clean and plenty of towels for everybody! The workmanship in this unit is quality all around and you can tell that they took a lot of time designing and decorating. This is a spacious single level although there are some stairs to get up to the unit once you are there it is an easy living floor plan. I would definitely return and rent again here again on our next return to Mammoth. Thank you Mary Beth for making us feel at home while on Vacation! Nancy

Sonenalp 3 Refined Rustic Retreat in one word? WONDERFUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the hottest of days it seems, we let Mary Beth know a few more portable fans would be very good to draw in the cooler air from the addition to the ceiling fans. She will add more portable fans. Mary Beth has been EXTREMELY available, helpful, personable, kind. The condo felt like home; it had everything you can ask for for your stay available to you. The only thing we needed to buy was our food,....there was even dishwasher detergent, hand wash soap for dishes, detergent for the clothes washing machine... extra pillows, plenty of towels,... The mattresses were EXTREMELY comfortable, even the sleeper sofa. We did not find any movie DVD's for our T.V. evenings; apparently they were removed,...taken... sadly, as I did not bring any with me as I knew the condo had quite a selection. But I did let Mary Beth know about the missing DVD's and she will look into it. This has been an A+ experience, I recommend this clean, comfortable, homey condo to anyone. Well worth it! Thank you Mary Beth!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the tip about the fans -- we added more just after your stay! We rely on guests like you to help us improve the experiences of all our guests. I'm super bummed about the loss of the folder of more than 50 movies we had in the condo. Sometimes things do get misplaced, and we are still searching in hopes of finding it. I hope you were able to find some good movies on the smart TVs with Netflix, Amazon prime and other services, or on regular old cable TV. ;-) Thank you for being awesome guests. We would love to have you back anytime.

Car: recommended

A five minute walk to Canyon Lodge (in ski boots!) where you can easily take a chair lift up to the top of the mountain. If you prefer you can hop on the gondola which will take you right to the village. You can also walk down to the village in about 15 minutes. Feeling lazy,? Take the shuttle, right out front, that will also take you right down to the village or up to Canyon Lodge.
