Nomadness Rentals

Sometimes you and your pet just really need some indoor space to stretch out and roll around. When a house is what you need, look no further than Nomadness Rentals. They pride themselves on hassle-free rentals that have everything you need, and they’ve got plenty of pooch-friendly places that allow you to live large.

Pet-Friendly Cabins in Mammoth Lakes (Year-Round)

The Edelweiss Lodge

It doesn’t get any more pet-tastic than the rustic Edelweiss Lodge in “Old Mammoth.” Welcoming pets and their people since 1957 to its knotty-pine cabins and suites, the Edelweiss Lodge definitely knows how to make its four-legged guests feel at home. Dogs can stay for just $20 a day, and their stay in noted with a “welcome basket” including sheets to cover the furniture, waste baggies, bowls and treats. Don’t worry: humans aren’t left out. They can partake in the homemade cookies from the local onsite managers. It’s these sort of personal touches that make The Edelweiss Lodge a family favorite and the perfect place for reunions and getaways.

Tamarack Lodge and Resort

If staying in the heart of the Mammoth Lakes Basin is your desire, then there’s no better choice than the historic Tamarack Lodge and Resort on the sparkling shores of Twin Lakes. The secluded cabins at the Tamarack Lodge and Resort welcome pets (note: rooms at the lodge are not pet-friendly). It’s been a favorite for generations, and for good reason: despite an aura of timelessness hewed in stone and timber, the lodge has one of the most distinctive restaurants in all of Mammoth Lakes, the elegant Lakefront Restaurant, as well as WiFi and all the regular hotel amenities you deserve on vacation.

Pinecliff Resort

Want to feel like you’ve traveled back in time when it comes to both décor and pricing? Consider Pinecliff Resort and its vintage1950s-style cabins. Located in a quiet neighborhood, it’s remote enough to feel like an escape, but also close to the downtown area and ski lifts. All units are dog-friendly, and several open out onto forested area that’s perfect for snow play. Each cabin has a full kitchen, WiFi, fireplace or wood-burning stove, cable TV and easy parking. The property is owner-operated by people happy to handle special requests and last-minute bookings.

Pet-Friendly Cabins in Mammoth Lakes (Summer-Only)

Crystal Crag Lodge

Named after a steep and rugged rock, which can be seen from the Mammoth Lakes Basin, the secluded Crystal Crag Lodge is settled on the shore of Lake Mary. For almost a hundred years, visitors and their pets have been enjoying the lodge’s incredible setting: the lake’s sparkling, trout-filled water; the pure, invigorating air; and the countless tree-lined hiking and biking trails on the edge of the High Sierra back country. Its elevation is high—9,000 feet—but the drive in from town and all of its conveniences is a short one. The rustic cabins are fully equipped with stocked kitchens, private bathrooms, fireplaces and decks with barbecues. Some even offer incredible mountain or lake views, and all benefit from the friendly, on-site staff.

Woods Lodge

Another way to get in touch with nature while still enjoying amenities, such as a hot shower and a comfy bed and pet-friendly cabins is Lake George’s Woods Lodge. Their rustic cabins have full kitchens and fireplaces, and many boast jaw-dropping views of the stunning scenery surrounding the property. If you’re interested in doing more than gazing at the serene water, rowboats and motorboats are available to rent. Birds, squirrels and sometimes even bears can be found at the Woods Lodge, along with the many visitors who’ve been making annual trips here for decades.

Each charming cabin is conveniently ski-in ski-out in the winter.
