A Vacation You Can Feel Good About at 1849

As stewards of Mammoth Lakes, we make it easy to plan a vacation you can feel good about. We implement several sustainable business practices so that you can travel responsibly with us! Canyon Lodge is the perfect place for conscientious travelers with several amenities that will help reduce our carbon footprint. Staying at Canyon Lodge will help you cut down on travel, utilize electric charging stations, and support local businesses. Read on to discover all the ways we can work together for sustainable travel in Mammoth Lakes:

  • Slopeside location to Mammoth Mountain and Mammoth Bike Park. No more driving to the mountain! 
  • You will have private access to electric car charging stations.
  • On-site recycling is available next to your rental.
  • We use organic and natural toiletries.
  • Access to the free Village gondola (winter seasonal) to the Village at Mammoth eliminates extra travel during vacation eating, shopping and attending events at one of the hottest spots in town.
  • We have bus stops next to our condos that offer free transportation throughout town.
  • Discounted ski, snowboard, and clothing rentals can be delivered directly to your room. This benefit reduces your time on the road and allows the rental technician to stop at multiple condos on the same trip.
  • You can also shop and dine right next door! Mammoth Mountain’s Canyon Lodge offers dining and shopping options during the day. And at night, you and the family can walk to the neighboring Austria Hof Restaurant that offers fine German American Cuisine. 
  • Ask us about grocery delivery! You can have your groceries delivered to your rental before your arrival. Again less time on the road and more vacation time.

Contributing to Our Staff & Community

Sustainability is about more than just protecting the natural environment- it’s also about keeping the local community happy and healthy. A sustainable business cares about its employees’ welfare by providing security and development through their jobs. We are committed to creating a work environment that reflects this element of sustainability. You can see this practice in action since our employees’ average tenure is about 13 years! But, sustainability is also about community engagement, which is why we employ and contract more than 80% of our staff and service locally.

We strive to keep our community successful by constantly sponsoring local events and businesses. We want to encourage everyone visiting Mammoth Lakes to shop locally during vacation.

The Mammoth Lakes Promise

To keep Mammoth Lakes and the beautiful Eastern Sierras protected for everyone to enjoy, pledge your support to the Mammoth Lakes Promise. This initiative asks you to treat Mammoth like your backyard by promoting sustainable travel practices. These include the seven principles of Leave No Trace, reducing waste, and traveling sustainably. At 1849 Mountain Rentals, we make it easy to keep your promise with our sustainable business practices.
