With summer festivals commencing July 4th weekend and continuing through Labor Day, Mammoth Lakes, California, offers a hot travel destination for music lovers of all genres, beer enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike. And while sipping and listening among the pines there’s no better place to stay than the elegantly rustic Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa. Located in the heart of town within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, those crystal-clear alpine lakes and, most importantly, the music, the resort recently received “cool place for warm summer days” kudos from Whole Life Times.

Nothing says summer like listening to live concerts outdoors amid stunning scenery with a cold drink in hand, and Mammoth Lakes has no shortage of options for just that, including these five music festivals scheduled for summer 2019:

August 30-September 1, 2019
As part of Outside on the Eastside—celebrating arts, culture and recreation—Mammoth Rock N' Rye offers three days of free live music, two tasting events from 30+ distilleries and endless fun.

And with all that music on tap, there’s no reason to stay anywhere other than downtown close to the action. The Sierra Nevada Resort in the jaw-droppingly gorgeous Mammoth Lakes area is ideally situated downtown, a few minutes from festivals by car or trolley. The lodging also sits mere minutes from such surrounding natural wonders as Devils Postpile National Monument, as well as Convict, Crowley and Mono lakes, and Yosemite National Park.

Resort guests are treated to the country-cozy mountain-lodge ambience of the friendly and attentive Sierra Nevada Lodge, with its hand-hewn alpine lobby bar featuring oversized fireplaces and hand-woven rugs. Overnight options for the 149-room resort include comfortably appointed lodge rooms, as well as the extensively remodeled fireplace suites – with their king-sized beds, resort-style kitchens accented by granite countertops, deep-soaking tubs in bathrooms with heated floors and toilet seats, and sink-into-soft leather chairs – and, perfect for groups, the spacious condo-style chalets, each one a luxurious bi-level townhome accommodating 8-10.

On-site dining at SNR represents three distinct culinary experiences and an award-winning wine program. The stylishly rustic Rafters Restaurant serves innovative takes on seasonally inspired New American cuisine, while Jimmy’s Taverna – named a “mountain retreat taking wine to new heights” by Wine Spectator – specializes in Mediterranean-inspired fresh seafood and wood-grilled meats, and the Red Lantern offers traditional Chinese cuisine in a richly styled space.

Rates at Sierra Nevada Lodge & Spa during the summer months start at $129 for lodge rooms midweek, $209 weekends (based on availability; taxes and resort fees not included).
