Lighting could be improved in the living area. The cold fluorescent bulb in the overhead ceiling lamp and zero table lamps made it hard to read and created an industrial ambiance after dark. The reception had no replacement bulbs nor table lamps to share. Too bad. But the sleeping room lighting was just fine! Such a strange disconnect within the cabin.
The history of the lodge came through and the location is ideal for a comfortable stay at Mammoth Lakes, away from Mammoth town but near enough. The focus on comfort came through in the high quality sleeping fabrics and mattress, and cleanliness of the sleeping room in the cabin. Hiking was nearby, a beautiful lake is across the street, canoes and bikes are at the ready, the pine smell is in the air. Perfect mountain experience with comfort.
