About this listing
This is a unique place. If you are searching for a one of a kind destination in the mountains that feels like home, not a condo or hotel experience, this is it. A charming guest house on a private horse ranch residence just outside of Mammoth Lakes, California. There is nothing comparable in the Eastern Sierra. The Elevation is 6,300 ft. Located 15 minutes from Mammoth/Yosemite airport. Car rental is available at the airport. The guest house is an acre from the main house up the drive, very private. The second story of the immaculate up-scale equestrian stable is bright and airy, well appointed, fresh and clean. No horse smells. This is not a conversion of a rough and tumble unused space in a barn. This is 1,100 square feet of cozy heaven. Something very organic about sleeping upstairs in a barn. Views for 60 miles with private deck and gas barbeque. A full kitchen complete with spices & herbs, coffee maker, all cooking utensils. A full bath with antique claw foot tub. Cozy fireplace in living room. One bedroom with exceptional linens. There is a also an antique daybed for additional sleeping for friends. The guesthouse is best suited to accommodate three or less. Can add an extra person(s) with additional fee. Not suitable for children. The salt water swimming pool is available to guests in the summer season during the day. This is the only retreat of it's kind in Mono county. Close to Skiing/Boarding, Golf, Climbing, Fishing Lakes & Creeks, Hiking, Biking, all in a private setting. Completely furnished from linens to martini shaker. There are wandering friendly French toulouse geese on the grounds, a couple horses to pet and a few house dogs that do not travel to the guest house, and will leave you alone. A quiet, private, peaceful, home away from home. A true getaway destination minutes from all that the Sierra's have to offer.
I do not allow dogs inside of the guesthouse. I can recommend dog accommodation if needed.
I will not except a booking request without prior communication with potential guests . This is a private residence, not a condo or hotel.
Military discounts are available.
The guesthouse is your home away from home. The pool area, located at the main house, is open to guests from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. Summer months only.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you at the guesthouse and give you a quick tour of how everything works. Happy to answer any questions that you may have about the area. If you need anything, I can be reached by text or phone most of the time. I will get right back to you if you leave a message.
Upscale, private, mountain community.
You need a car to be here. Spring, summer and fall, a two wheel drive is fine. Winter should be four wheel drive or at least carry chains to be safe. The roads are paved and maintianed by the county.
If you cannot find the guesthouse, Please call me first. Please do not wander up someone's driveway asking for directions. I am happy to meet you, if you are lost. My neighbors are wonderful and private. We live on the side of a mountain for the beauty and peace in our community. Their privacy is to be respected at all times. Thank you for understanding.
Please leave the guesthouse as clean and tidy as when you check in. Please respect my home as if it were your home. Please do your dishes and take the rubbish / recycling out to the red bin located on the main floor of the stable when you check out.
No pets please.
No unregistered guests are allowed on property.
No street shoes are allowed inside, pls bring indoor slippers.
California is in extreme drought conditions. Please be water conscious and conserve. The shower has a standard shower head. The diverter valve on the clawfoot tub must be turned one way to turn the shower head on.
Please No Smoking in the guesthouse, stable, pool area or on the grounds.
Please do not leave food in your car, or on the deck. This is a wildlife area. "Food" includes any item with a scent, regardless of packaging.
Fish cleaning stations are available at all of the lakes in the area, or I can recommend one for you. Please do not dispose of fish entrails in the trash bins on the ranch. It will bring in animals best seen at a distance.
It might sound like a silly request, but we do ask that guests are conscientious with extreme scents, as we have lots of wonderful guests who stay with us and there's likely someone checking in the same day as your check out.
Please remember to close the main door to the stable once you are traveling in or out of the stable at all times. We have predators in the area that could potentially harm the animals inside of the stable, evenings are the most important time to make sure the stable door is closed.
Please- Swim attire only, no street or hiking-wear. No nudity.
Our swimming pool is available for daylight use in the summer. The pool is closed to guests after 7:00 pm.
The pool is not designed for diving. It is a relaxing pool.
Deep end of pool is 5.8ft./ Shallow end of pool is 3.6ft.
For Fire Safety; Please do not use your gas bbq if windy conditions are present.
Please clean grill completely and replace the cover when you are finished cooking. Failure to clean the grill is an an invitation for a wild animal up on your deck.
We have a "Dark Sky" policy in Mono county. It's a mountain thing! To avoid light pollution for other star gazers in the area, the interior lights on the first floor of the stable are very bright and are to be turned off once you are settled in up in the guesthouse. The horses and geese also prefer to sleep in natural light.
The Horses are show horses and are not available for riding. They may be away at a horse show during your stay.
Please do not feed the horses. They will attempt to talk you out of this idea.. They are on a restricted diet. They maintain a zero snack tolerance . Petting is always welcome.
Please respect the privacy of our neighbors and our neighborhood.
Check out time is 11:00 am - Check in time is 3:00 pm
Thank you for honoring the requests on this list. It is mostly just common sense!
Enjoy your stay.
