Property type townhome

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

If naturalist John Muir had built his indoor zen mountain retreat in Mammoth Lakes, our 3BR/3BA townhouse-style condo would have been it! "The mountains are calling" indeed at this spacious, comfy, lovingly remodeled from-head-to-toe spot, minutes from Old Mammoth, 5 miles to Main Lodge, and a walk across the street to the Shuttle Stop that takes you anywhere you want to go. Leave your car parked for your entire stay, and enjoy the comfort and convenience of our beautiful Woodlands retreat! It is our goal and passion for you to fall in love here just as we did.

The space features three wonderfully stylish bedrooms and three bathrooms. One of the rooms has an en-suite bath and vanity area. 1400 square feet of living space, with dramatic vaulted ceilings in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Each bedroom features soft, high thread count bedding, plush towels, beautiful rugs, and plenty of closet and dresser space for friends, singles, couples, or families.

3 bedrooms and two baths are on the ground level, with customizable thermostats in each room, and the upstairs features a stunning open floor plan living room, dining room, kitchen, fireplace, full bath, and deck to enjoy the snowfall or in summer months, a barbecue and cocktails looking out to the trees.

The living room has a plush modern velvet sectional that can seat your whole gang, or be a warm respite to lay down aprés-ski while you enjoy time reading by the pellet stove, or watching the huge flat screen smart TV with friends, lovers, or family. We gratefully offer free cable and WiFi.

As passionate culinary enthusiasts, we created a cooks' kitchen in the condo, with eco-friendly pots and pans, brand new stainless steel appliances, convection toaster oven, new coffee maker, blender and juicer, baking supplies, colorful Fiesta ware dishes, sexy Slovak crystal wine goblets and glasses, and more. We have organic coffee and tea available for you in the canisters by the new programmable coffee pot and tea kettle.

We are 7 minute walk to the town of Old Mammoth, or a 2 minute drive, where you can have drinks and snacks at the stunning Mammoth Tavern, enjoy finer or more casual dining, and even bar hop some happy hours at the new tasting rooms or old favorites along Old Mammoth Road. And didn't we mention no driving necessary? Whether you're visiting with friends, as couples, or as a family, you walk literally across the street to catch Mammoth's reliable shuttle day or night, and in minutes you're in town, at the Village (with Gondola service to Canyon Lodge), or at Main Lodge for skiing and snowboarding, hiking or mountain-biking fun! Eagle Lodge is also less than a mile away. We feel that once you've stayed at our convenient and warm Woodlands space, you'll look no further to return again and again. And it will be our great pleasure to have you!

About Nicole and Steve

We love the mountains and the city. He's a professional journalist who lived in Mammoth for four years. She's an electrologist who is new to Mammoth Lakes, but loves snowboarding, hiking, SUPing, and cycling.

Nicole and Steve purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Nicole and Steve chose Mammoth Lakes

It's centrally located, so you don't have to drive if you don't want to. It's only a five minute walk to Vons. The shuttle is 100 feet from our front door and you can pedal to just about anywhere in Mammoth in minutes.

The condo itself is one of the most stylish in Mammoth. No dated vintage ski posters here. It's fun and funky and has brilliant morning sun, vaulted ceilings, and great bedrooms.

There's also a pool, jacuzzi, and BBQ.

Such a great experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights over President's Day Weekend and we had such an enjoyable time. The house is warm and inviting, and very nicely decorated. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. The location was very central and close to the Red Line. We received detailed instructions from the owners prior to our stay, and access to the house from check-in to check-out was seemless. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Hip Mammoth

  • 5 of 5

Overall a great Mammoth property. Very cool and hip decor – all furnishings, fixtures and amenities are up-to-date. This is not your typical tired and dated Mammoth condo that's stuck in the 80s. All instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Very pleased with our stay, I will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review, Richard! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our mountain home. We worked very hard during our remodel of the (once stuck in the 80s) property to give it a modern, yet warm, and hip vibe. Since we live here as much of the year as possible, we wanted it to also feel special. You are welcome back anytime. fondly, nicole and steve

We really loved staying here. The townhouse is nicely updated and well maintained. It’s location in the heart of town made everything super convenient, too. I’d definitely try to stay here again on my next excursion.
