Mammoth Lakes Rentals for the Holidays

Mammoth Rentals for the holidays The two weeks of winter break start on Friday December 19, a value day to check in to your Mammoth Mountain rentals. The first week of the holiday season is typically less expensive to find good ski in and out rental condos that are right on the mountain. The week starting December 26 is always prime season and the days of December 26, 27 and 28 are the most illustrious days of the year to find availability. This year New Years falls on a Thursday making a 4 day weekend in Mammoth just the ticket. Prices due tend to go up when there is snowfall, so booking early and being flexible in your vacation to Mammoth Lakes is a tip most don't know. This year the holiday season goes till January 4, 2015.

Lodging rentals in Mammoth come with minimum night stay requirements with most being 4 or 5 nights during the holidays especially after Christmas. This is relaxed as the days draw closer, but the quantity of large, pet friendly, ski in out rentals also diminishes. There are small windows of opportunity to pick up a great place that can be found by calling the Mammoth City Concierge at 866-864-6444 who can make reservations with the majority of the lodging facilities in town. They also maintain the cancellation lists which are circulated around town and a secret to finding good lodging at the last minute, if you can be flexible on your arrival and vacation days. Providing the best personalized service as rated by online service such as 5 stars at Yelp, Google Plus and Facebook, City Concierge is your resource for questions about the lodging rentals and why certain properties are better than others. A key factor when you're bringing yourself to Mammoth for the first time.

There are trade offs for the traditional and coveted "ski in out" condo rentals which for some reason have always held some amount of clout. Ski in and out typically means right on the snow. The trade off however, is that the free shuttle service in Mammoth doesn't go there, so you will have to drive any other place in town. Conversely, a "walk to lifts" rental is likely on the shuttle route, so you can get the convenience of ski in ski out, and the free shuttle system. Walk to lifts can mean different things to different people so be sure to inquire exactly how far that is, and if it is a walk up hill, as most of them are!

Cabin rentals are requested most often by first timers to Mammoth Mountain. There are no cabin rentals in Mammoth! Sorry, but they don't exist. Cabins typically mean "log cabins" and there just aren't any. Instead, you'll find 1000's of Mammoth condo rentals set up to be "ski condos" which are what you're really looking for in lodging. A rental ski condo typically has a mud room, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and all the modern conveniences of hotel rooms, except room service. That is of course unless you can get your spouse to wait on you.

There is also a cache to staying in the Mammoth Village. This comes from the idea that a village will be the center of town or activities. In Mammoth that is quite the contrary as The Village is at the end of town. The center is actually Main Street and Old Mammoth Road and there are 100's more opportunities to find great places to stay in Mammoth than off one of these streets. There are 22 restaurants on Old Mammoth Road, there are only 5 in The Village!
