We all dream about the times in our life when every day is a vacation day, spent sleeping in, puttering about, and enjoying the quiet, but for now, your reality is just the opposite. You fill your days with work, school, play, family, and friends, and often your nights are filled with restlessness, worries, and weird little questions that pop into your mind JUST as you are about to fall asleep! You may not even have time for a full vacation this year, and a weekend getaway to “somewhere wonderful” is about as far as your brief planning sessions have brought you. Fortunately, we at Mammoth Five Star Lodging have plenty of ideas of how to make your weekend escape one filled with fun, comfort, and relaxation, and of course, they all start with our comfortable and luxurious weekend escapes! Fill your (few) days with excitement and adventure and come home each night to the peaceful luxuries you can only find with our vacation homes in Mammoth Lakes. This guide will help you make the most of your time!

Slow Down the Pace
It’s tempting to drop your bags at the door and run out to explore everything that Mammoth Lakes has to offer in 48 hours of whirlwind excitement, but we beg you to take a step back, slow down the pace, and really experience the beauty of Mammoth and our Mammoth Lakes luxury rentals. There’s no way to do it all in a weekend away, and you will be back. We guarantee it, especially after your first few minutes at home with us! Step into spaces with vaulted ceilings that may or may not offer tongue-and-groove ceilings and feel your stresses fall away, drifting towards the floor like an unwanted jacket on a suddenly warm day. Pick your bedroom first, choosing the cozy and tranquil space that best suits your needs, and then take some time to explore all the comforts inside our rustic cabins and condos. Sink into soft sofas, leaning back to see what it might feel like to nap in its depths, and then pick up the remote on the table next to you and marvel at the crystal-clear images on the state-of-the-art television hanging over the fireplace. Gas fireplaces can be turned on with a click of a button, but there is just something so satisfying about building a fire on your own, stacking the wood, tossing in some kindling, and maybe creating little bundles of tightly wrapped newspaper sheets to encourage a quick igniting process, ensuring a night that is warm and romantic.
The dining room, often centered between the kitchen and living space in our open concept floor plans, will be where very important games will be played, delicious meals will be devoured, and dad jokes will cause uncontrollable groans and giggles to ring through the rafters. The kitchen, the heart of the home, blends modern convenience with cozy comforts, encouraging the exchange of family recipes and often being the spot where dreams are shared in quiet whispers after the rest of the family has drifted off to sleep. Outside, large decks and patios are built for fun and relaxation, often providing places to sit and watch the sun set or rise, shiny barbecue grills the chief griller in your family won’t be able to wait to get their hands on, and in many cases, a hot tub bubbling merrily under the open sky. If the weekend hideaway doesn’t offer a private hot tub, chances are access to the community one is included with your rental amenities.
Fun for the Weekend
Depending on the season of your weekend getaway, you could spend your free minutes skiing, snowboarding, or sitting in beautiful lodges sipping hot cocoa in front of a roaring fire while the rest of your family is on the slopes. Summer hikes along the Duck Lake Pass Trailhead offer the chance to get out in nature and experience all that is wonderful in Mammoth Lakes; watch for the different species of birds nesting in the trees and keep an eye out for mama deer hiding just beyond the tree line with their beautiful fawns snacking nearby. Enjoy breakfast at the Stove, lunch at the Good Life Café, and dinners at Toomey’s. Our fully equipped kitchens, especially those in our Mammoth Lakes luxury rentals, do make it easy to prepare a meal, but your short time in town may just make you want to eat out every meal!
You Will Be Back
Now that you have had a taste of all Mammoth has to offer and are laying in our premium beds on your last night in town, you know that you will be back, staying longer and playing harder and making memories that will last a lifetime. Contact us and book your favorite escape today!
