Overview

A highly ranked retreat in the Sierra Nevada, near world-class ski resorts and Yosemite, with a cabin option

The Lowdown

When looking for a lovely getaway in the mountains-and-waterfalls kind
of wild West, consider Double Eagle Resort & Spa, amid the
spectacular scenery of June Lake. The hotel offers you access to all of
the classic Californian wilderness you could dream of, even within its
own property lines. You’re on a Sierra mountainside, while the
full-service spa (with more than 40 treatments) sits on the creekside,
and the delightful restaurant pairs its hearty dishes with mountain and
waterfall views. From your own room, you may behold a pond or
the mountains’ dramatic silhouettes.
Easily get an even closer
look at all of the above: Along with the properly Wild Western
destination of Bodie ghost town, nearby attractions include the ski
resorts of June Mountain and the ancient waters of Mono Lake. Both are a
short drive, as is a little park called Yosemite. There’s a reason
they call June Lake the Switzerland of California: It’s a veritable
playground for outdoor enthusiasts. And this hotel is TripAdvisor’s
top-ranked stay in town and a Certificate of Excellence winner, so when
you’re looking for local luxe, it’s Double Eagle or nothing.

Rooms and cabins

The rooms and cabins at Double Eagle
Resort are exactly what you would expect from a cozy mountainside lodge.
Each features rustic wooden accents, warm neutral palettes that reflect
the surrounding landscape, stunning views from your private deck and
all the comforts of home. The resort rooms feature your choice
of a king or two queen beds, a small kitchenette with a refrigerator and
a fireplace. Along with fireplaces of their own, the charming cabins
have two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, living areas, outdoor
furnishings, barbecues and mountain views; bed sizes vary.

Dining

At
the Eagle’s Landing Restaurant, every seat has a view of the mountains
or waterfall – including from the spacious outdoor deck, in the summer
season. Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant features
extensive menus, with specialties from herb rotisserie-roasted chicken
to seafood selections, steaks and ribs. If you’re looking for a
full-service bar, Eagle’s Nest Saloon has fine wines, aperitifs and
more.

Spa

The Creekside Spa and Fitness Center
offers a tranquil environment, more than 40 relaxing treatments, an
indoor pool, a whirlpool and a fully equipped workout area. You’ll find
complete rejuvenation in the space, surrounded by the lush green
landscape, as well as in the treatments, like the Thai-inspired Luk Pra
Massage and the Sierra Cleansing Facial. Also available is a full menu
of salon treatments, like manicures and waxes. 

Location

An
outdoor-lover’s paradise, June Lake is home to a premier Sierra
Mountains ski resort and a charming mountainside town, near some of the
West’s greatest outdoor attractions. Hiking, mountain biking, rock
climbing, boating, nature walks – the list goes on. Visit nearby Mammoth
Lakes or Mono Lake for summer water sports, take in the awe-inspiring
beauty of nearby Rainbow Falls in the autumn, or ski at June Mountain in
the winter. Explore Yosemite – the most visited national park in the
country – or discover Bodie Ghost Town, a deserted gold-mining town and
state historical park. Also nearby is a waterfall considered one of the
most beautiful in the Sierra.

Great Staff, Great Stay!
Reviewed 1 week ago

During my visit to the Double Eagle Resort and Spa I experience nothing but the most excellent care and service. We stayed in a cabin and it was absolutely amazing. From this property you have a great view of Carson Peak, a relaxing spa, and a great restaurant! I highly recommend this resort ESPECIALLY with the Summer Season coming up (they have a catch and release trout pond). A very big thank you to the Lodging office staff as well as housekeeping staff! We will be visiting again.

Double Eagle Resort & Spa - VERY POOR EXPERIENCE
Reviewed 1 week ago

The cabins are supposed to be "remodeled" and updated.

The remodeling is extremely poor quality.

In winter, you can feel the cold drafts coming in from several leaky windows.

There must be NO insulation in the walls as you can easily hear what is going on in the the rest of the cabin.

The TV didn't work and when we called to get it fixed it took a day to repair it. When it was fixed, it took about 5 seconds to change from 1 channel to the next.

Free WiFi was very poor. We measured the performance @ 50K. Our phones, Verizon service, were getting 5 times that rate.

The "kitchen" is very poorly stocked and if you really want to make meals you should bring everything you need including dishes, pans, mixing bowls and whatever else you need to prepare the meal.

Something was wrong with the plumbing as there was a distinct smell of raw sewage in the cabin. We complained about that and they told us they couldn't do anything about it.

We tried to use the spa and it was shut down by the health department!

They did not offer us any compensation for the shut down.

The management was rude and generally ignorant.

The front desk people were covered with tattoos and piercings, not what we would expect from the most expensive resort in June Lake.

I could list other problems but it's not worth it.

GO ANYWHERE ELSE!

This is the email we sent to management upon our return.

we spent last week at your resort, in cabin 112.

Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed by the lack of customer service.

We were supposed to receive room service every day.

We checked in on Sunday, and on Monday someone came to make our beds, empty all the bins and leave fresh towels (although they did not remove the dirty towels from the floor where we left them, as per your instructions).

No new fire starters were left (and the fire lighter above the fireplace did not work, nor did one of the burners on the stove).

On Tuesday someone left fresh towels on the kitchen table and that was that. Nothing else was done, including still not removing by now the growing pile of dirty towels off the bathroom floor, or making beds, or sweeping or vacuuming, no fire starters, no new toilet rolls, or emptying the bins.

Exactly the same happened on Wednesday (and by now our bedding should have been changed). I personally had to come to the office to ask for some room service, which meant someone came, changed some of the beds (the sofa bed was NEVER changed) and emptied the bins (though the one in the bathroom was never emptied) and that was that. Again, by now the pile of dirty towels was getting ridiculous, and so was the pile of fresh towels on our kitchen table, and still no vacuuming, no sweeping, no new fire starters, or God forbid a toilet roll. Luckily, I had brought our own flushable wet wipes.

And on Thursday and Friday we got simply nothing, except of course, for clean towels on the - by now - filthy kitchen table. Bins were overflowing with both trash and recycling. We had so many dirty towels it was almost impossible to walk in the bathroom. And we only got new fire starters because I asked the gentleman who refilled our wood pile for some.

By Saturday morning, the cabin looked absolutely horrifying, and we could not wait to get out.

This is clearly not the service I wold expect even in a motel, let alone a $300 per night resort.

We found everyone to be extremely polite, but we would never repeat our stay, nor would we ever recommend the place to anyone.

Great location, great food

We stayed in a lovely room with beautiful view/setting. The restaurant was wonderful! Salmon, fish n chips, lamb shank .. all great. I would definitely recommend getting a room on second floor though .... Boy, you can hear everything from bottom floor!! Pool/spa was lovely as well. They do not have microwave but a pretty big fridge. The coffee is beyond awful but that’s not why we came - just bring hot plate to cook stuff and your own coffee. We will be back!

My friends and I went to June Lake ski resort for the day and decided to visit Double Eagle resort apres-ski and have a drink there. We walked into the bar/restaurant entrance, and we were rudely greeted by 2 women stating that the bar was closed due to a private event that evening in a way as if we should have known this and how dare we even consider visiting. There was no sign outside regarding this event. My friends and I kindly said thank you and left the resort and then realized how badly we were treated. We completely understand the situation of the reasons for the bar to be closed but it would have been nice if they had said something like " we are so sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope you will visit again in the future". Not the case. We will never go back to this resort.
