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.

How to Get There
Stayed in one of the cabins for a wedding and it was beautiful. You can't beat the view! The cabin was cozy and the resort has a calm vibe. Kitchen was decently stocked if you plan on cooking (no storage for leftovers though so bring your own Tupperware or whatever). We had 3 vehicles (2 were trucks) and parking was just fine. Beds were comfy. The rooms don't have ac but even in August, it wasn't a problem. Open your window in the evening and close everything up in the morning. The cabin stayed cool. Even my husband who is always hot, was comfortable.
The restaurant on site is good. Decently priced. You can have a $12 burger or a $36 steak. Service is a bit slow so don't plan on popping in "really quick" for lunch. The staff were all extremely nice and gave us recommendations for hikes and activities. We did Fern lake one morning. Great hike if you want a little challenge! The town isn't far from the resort. All in all, I'd stay here again.
*If you're interested in this as a wedding venue, I highly recommend! Everything from the ceremony site to cocktail hour and reception area was gorgeous! My friend said Erika, the wedding coordinator was a dream to work with. All of the staff were helpful while I was setting up our decorations. Couldn't have asked for better. Pictures are going to be amazing!
We've stayed here in the past and it is one of our favorite locations; but this time it looked a little rundown, not well taken care of. For the price, rooms seemed a little shabby, housekeeping was minimal; you have to go to the bar or the spa to get ice for rooms. staff was not unfriendly but not real friendly either. However, we love the area, and if you don't want to camp, this is a great option/location.
My female friend and I went there to try their spa and swimming pool. My friend has a 6-year old daughter, so it turned out kids are
- not allowed to the spa lockers at all, even with the same gender adult/parent;
- allowed to the swimming pool area only at certain hours and there are no lockers for clothes, towels etc.
Hot Tub has a great beautiful view due to the large windows, swimming pool area is very well-lit with natural light. Spa was nothing extra ordinary, very dark, windowless corner with jacuzzi.
