Lodging

There is a wide selection of different lodging options for guests who stay at the Tamarack Resort.

One of the largest and most upscale are the estate homes. These private estate homes sleep up to 17 people at a time and feature grand entertaining and gathering areas. They are located in mountain lots that are secluded from the main areas of the resort and offer views of both the lake and mountain peaks. Each estate home offers slightly different amenities, but they include a combination of features including fireplaces, decks, washer/dryers, hot tubs, and garages. All estate homes have a mix of bed sizes - king, queen, twin - in multiple bedrooms.

Lodging can also be found at The Lodge, which is located at Osprey Meadows. The Lodge has traditional hotel rooms as well as condominiums and studio apartments for overnight stays. The building is just minutes from the resort’s central area. Guests can choose from either king or queen size beds in a variety of different set-ups. Each room at The Lodge has at least one full bathroom, and some of them come with washer/dryers, balconies, and gas fireplaces.

Tamarack also offers townhomes for overnight stays. They have between one and three bedrooms (all with at least one king size bed) and are located in clusters along some of the resort neighborhoods and alpine trails around the property. These townhomes have standard features like entry-level kitchens and dining areas, stacked washer/dryers, fireplaces, hardwood floors, and hot tubs (in some units).

Guests can also choose cottages for their overnight stays. All cottages are over 1,000 square feet in size and have two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Each of these cottages has their own, private hot tub, fireplaces, and washer/dryers.

These chalets can sleep as many as 12 guests at a time in their three or four bedroom lodging, which can be as large as 3,000 square feet. Each chalet comes with a fireplace, private hot tub, detached garage, and wrap-around deck. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, which each subsequent bedroom has either a queen or two twin size beds.
