Bedrooms 3
Space 1,500 sq. ft.
Property type townhome

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8 or 9 dependent on size of children)

Furnished for comfort with all the luxuries and amenities you want in a vacation, enjoy Mammoth at our mountain inspired town home.

Comfy beds, pillows, linens, and flat screen TVs furnish each of three bedrooms. No sagging mattresses; no squeaky box springs. With brand new heaters, digital thermostats, humidifiers and plenty of blankets, you'll feel extra cozy even on cold dry evenings. Feel the open space and natural beauty of the Sierras as each bedroom has spectacular views of Mammoth -- trees and mountains -- not the neighbors or a parking lot like many rentals. There is even a brand new queen sleeping sofa that promises a good night's rest. Three full bathrooms offer plenty of privacy and a new extra large water heater ensures plenty of hot showers.

Enjoy relaxing under cedar cathedral ceilings on the spacious L-shaped living room sofa. Equipped with a state-of-the-art surround sound entertainment system, 1080p LCD flat screen with Amazon Firestick (free Amazon Prime, HBO, Showtime, and more) PS3 Blue Ray DVD player, Chromecast, and wireless streaming to the stereo. You can kick back and watch a movie, or enjoy music and a toasty fire. Feel free to enjoy our DVD/Gaming library and old-school board games. Free WiFi Internet, movie channels and cable TV are available throughout so staying connected is simple and fast.

The large dining room table seats 10 comfortably and there is a breakfast bar with stools for the quick breakfast or coffee. With a fully stocked kitchen (microwave, coffee maker, electric water kettle, toaster, crock-pot, utensils) you have all the equipment necessary to make a sandwich or cook a gourmet meal.

The balcony has reclining Adirondack chairs and a beautiful view of the Sherwin range. After a fun filled day outside, store all your gear in our private ski/fishing closet and then relax in the Jacuzzi or sauna mere steps away. In the summer, lounge poolside and have a refreshing swim.

There is a washer and dryer located within the townhouse that is welcome to all guests staying 5 days or more.

The Woodlands is centrally located to everything. The walk to town, supermarket, and movies are only 6 blocks away. The free red line ski/town shuttle stop is right across the street. Biking, walking paths, the Sierra Star golf course, a sledding hill for the kids, and open meadow for dogs or star gazing are all, literally, right outside the front door.

Wishing we could spend all our time up at the Woodlands, we created a very special, relaxing, and cozy home that we know you will enjoy as much as we do.

Rates do vary per season. Just send us your inquiry and we'll get back to you quickly with a full quote that includes taxes and cleaning. Look forward to sharing our love of Mammoth.

Owner purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Owner chose Mammoth Mountain

Having spent many years in Mammoth, we decided to buy and remodel our townhouse last year because we couldn't resist the ideal location and spacious layout. Views, cathedral loft ceilings, and 3 bedroom/3 bath allows lots of room and total privacy for the whole family. The Woodlands complex, in our opinion, is one of the best Mammoth has to offer. Beautiful landscaping with lots of trees and flowers, pool, jacuzzi, and sauna. It has it all.

A beautiful property that exceeded my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much Brad and Sharon! The Kraus Haus made for a great final weekend skiing in Mammoth. The property was wonderful, it's convenient location led to a pleasant Saturday evening walk to dinner at Roberto's, and the hot tub that is a short walk from out the front door of the unit made for the perfect chance to relax after a day on the mountain.

Owner's Response: Nothing better than exceeding expectations! Thanks so much for your thoughts. We love our mountain home and earnestly try to keep it modern with a rustic cabin charm since we use it quite a bit ourselves.

Great Location! Very comfortable!

Had a wonderful stay at the Kraus Haus! Nicely appointed (has a Kindle Fire Stick and fun family games) and very spacious. Close to the redline and easy walk to restaurants, the market and shopping. Great communication with owner. Would definitely stay here again.

Spectacluar Mammoth

  • 5 of 5

We caught Mammoth in all its glory this trip. Stunning sight, seeing the incredible snow coverage. To make this the best trip to-date, staying at Brad and Sharon's home greatly amplified the experience. Their home provided a complete comfort zone for our stay, close by to all that Mammoth offers as well as providing the creature comforts of home. Fully functional kitchen (we cooked most meals) and complete entertainment center accommodating everyone's needs. We look forward to returning to the Kraus Haus. Thanks again for making your home available for our stay.

Terrific stay!

  • 5 of 5

It is a pleasure to write this review! In a word: Terrific!

First and foremost, the unit was clean and comfortable. Large, too! Plenty of room for three couples and, possibly, a person or two on the sleeper sofa, if necessary.

Second, the bathrooms were nice and stocked with plenty of good quality, new condition linens. Hate renting a place that fails to stock spa-quality linens.

Third, we stayed in the guest bedroom downstairs (there is also a master bedroom with attached bath downstairs.) The comforter, sheets and pillows were designer-quality and the bed was very comfortable, not lumpy, old or unpleasant. Although the sheets were high quality, my wife and I nonetheless placed our flannel fitted sheet and top sheet over the existing sheets for further warmth and comfort. (We spoil ourselves.) There is an electric wall heater and thermostat in the bedroom that kept the room amply warm.

The downstairs guest bath was not freezing despite the low outside temperatures as there is another wall heater that kept us comfortable. No problem getting hot water!

The main level was nicely stocked with an over-sized, wooden table and heavy chairs that served as our entertainment (and meal) center for games, conversation and, of course, drinking and appetizers. The electronic entertainment center was phenomenal with a big screen high definition television that was very easily to operate and had a wide variety of channels. The fireplace was well-stocked and created a great ambiance. The kitchen was amply stocked with dishes, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker, dishwasher and microwave. We cooked breakfast daily, and dinner.

In case I forget, there is WIFI, too, so we could keep in touch with our family, friends and, unfortunately, the office! Absolutely no problems getting online and were never bumped!

Parking is just a few feet away and was kept clear by the property manager. The wives enjoyed the jacuzzi while the guys bonded in the unit over beers! Too, we were too sore from a hard day's skiing to take another step.

The location is convenient, too. Although we drove everyday to the ski areas, the shuttle stops are close by. Accessible by Meridian or Old Mammoth Road, Vons, ski rental shops, restaurants and bars were close by.

The owners -- Brad and his wife -- were very accommodating and accessible almost immediately by phone, text and email. We had absolutely no problems with this condo and highly recommend it for others.
