I wanted to take a moment to share this while it is fresh in my mind as we just returned from a week's stay at the lodge. It's hard to know where to begin because it was simply awesome!! First of all, the location of the cabins is right on the south shore of Lake Mary and the beauty of...

We just returned from a great Hiking weekend in the Mammoth Lakes Basin. There are only 3 Lodges in the upper Lakes Basin and Crystal Crag Lodge is one of them. The Lodge is set along the Lake Shore below Crystal Crag. We prefer staying up in the Lakes Basin versus town because the scenery is breathtaking with Spiky Granit...

I just wanted to share that i thought the vacation I experienced at the crystal crag cabins was second to none. The staff was very polite and accomodating. They love well behaved doggies and even gave our dogs Crystal Crag dog tags with the cabin location we had in the unfortunate incident if they were to be lost. I would...

My husband and I have been to the Sierras several times before, staying in both Yosemite and Kings Canyon. This was our first trip to Mammoth and boy did we have a good time! We stayed In the Virginia cabin from June 11th-16th 2012. We were surprised at the beauty of Mammoth lakes and yet the easy convenience to town...

Stayed in cozy Mamie cabin with everything we needed, staff was attentive and great. Snow, weather and mountains; beauty beyond description. Booking for next year. Oh and BTW, the fishing was great.

My husband and I stayed in the Garnet cabin (1 bedroom, lakeview) with our 2 children (6.5 and 1.5) at the end of June. Tons of snow still, but Lake Mary had melted at least. We loved the cabin--very unpretentious and cozy. It is small--we had to keep shifting our luggage from room to room depending on the time of...

My husband and I, along with our pup, traveled up to Mammoth in October 2010 and stayed 4 nights at Crystal Crag Lodge............which really is a group of cabins of various sizes. The area is just beautiful and did not feel crowded, but it was October! Cabins - we stayed in Twin which is a one bedroom one bath cabin...

Group of housekeeping cabins on Lake Mary, Mammoth Lakes, Ca. Even though a bit funky like most housekeeping cabins (what was my grandmother's veneer end table doing in the bathroom?), cabins & grounds are well-maintained. Beds are unusually comfortable & linens very nice. Service was excellent & cheerful. The problem for me was the location, not the resort. This beautiful...

The cabin was a great choice to locate ourselves for a 9 day trip to the Mammoth Lakes area. The furnishings in the cabin were outdated (I know it's expensive to keep everything updated, but if it was my property I would visit Ikea for kitchen items and The Company Store for bedding and linens) but everything that you would...

I know this place has great appeal for a longer stay (the cabin rentals are usually by the week), but I wanted to add it's also great for a one night post-Yosemite stay, if you can get a cabin. Lucky for me, they had a one night opening. I was originally scheduled for a night in "Twin" (one bedroom with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have 22 cabins from 1-4 bedrooms set right alongside beautiful Lake Mary, just minutes from the town of Mammoth Lakes, but in a world of our own. Incomparable setting and views and some of the best hiking, biking, and fishing anywhere. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable, and the beds have all been replaced recently and are of very good quality. ... more   less

“All are wonderful but if you want the best views of the lake, get closer to the main lodge area.”

“The older cabins, to the west are more isolated and quieter, but they also have the longest climb to access the cabin.”
  • Beautiful view from the deck of Crystal cabin.
