About Leslie Graham

My husband and I were given a large cabin to stay in for our honeymoon many years ago. During that week, it snowed, we melted, we fished...we had all kinds of fun! And so the story began.....

Leslie Graham purchased this condo in 2012

Why Leslie Graham chose Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We chose Mountain Shadows because the complex is well maintained, and the owners/managers are very involved in making sure it is the best it can be.

What makes this condo unique

Mountain Shadows is quiet and peaceful. It is nestled in a few pines and yet very convenient and accessible.

Cozy retreat in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to shopping, restaurants and bus lines to mountain. Room was great size for two people, with a bigger than average kitchen for a studio.

Property is nice.

  • 3 of 5

The 3 star review doesn't reflect the property or convienince to restaraunts/vons/shuttles. There was pre-scheduled painting that by the looks of the papers hung in the hallways, was scheduled since the 21st of August, which was not disclosed. For a small getaway we were awoken at 7 am on Monday and Tuesday by the sounds of scraping on the sides of the building for paint prepping.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry! I knew they were prepping to paint but did not know when. We went up at the end of July to take the wood off the took until now. Thank you for staying with us.

Nice unit with some glitches that need fixing

  • 3 of 5

First the good points...

The unit is nicely decorated and "homey" feeling. The amenities are nice in general. The complex, while older and in need of some TLC, is conveniently locate to shuttles, restaurants and Von's. This is a studio so trying to squeeze 4 people with luggage in here would be a real stretch.

Now the negatives. The owner really needs to take care of a few things.

1. The bed is wayy too soft. The mattress is past its prime and to make up for it, there is a thick 3 - 4" foam pad that literally causes you to sink into the bed with your back badly arched.

2. The pillows supplied are down & feathers with no synthetic alternatives. Thankfully my wife wasn't along on the trip or she'd have gone into allergic shock. Owner really needs to note this in advance.

3. The microwave turntable is not the correct size for the microwave so instead of rotating your food, it sits in one place. Replace the microwave or get the proper fitting turntable please.

4. Owner should note in advance that coffee maker is a Keurig unit. I brought ground coffee thinking it would be a regular coffee maker but had to buy K-cups at Von's (she gives you two with the rental).

5. Because the office is only open until 5pm, unless you arrive before then, you will NOT be able use the jacuzzi or pool that night because you have to get the gate entry codes from the office. After talking to the on-site manager (who has nothing to do with rentals), they don't change the codes very often. The owner should have obtained them in advance and provided them with her check-in documents. A small step that would have been appreciated.

6. No bar soap or facial tissues provided.

7. Finally, the owner requires that the GUEST strip the bed on check-out. That is a bit annoying since you're paying a $50 cleaning fee.

My wife and I used to own & manage a similar condo rental at the complex right next to this so we have some idea about how things can/should be done.

Wonderful and cozy, feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely perfect for any stay in Mammoth. The unit is new and clean and comes with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was perfect for all of our cooking we did and has all the necessary pots and pans etc. We had more enough space for all the gear we had and could come back after a long day of fishing and just relax, cook a good meal, and get a great nights sleep. The bed couldn't have been more comfortable the bathroom was nice and clean! It was the best place we have stayed in Mammoth and look forward to returning to!
