Just 20 miles north of Mammoth Lakes and a few minutes from the small ski area of June Mountain, The Double Eagle Resort and Spa has 16 rooms, plus 15 two-bedroom cabins with kitchens, outdoor barbecues, and indoor wood-burning fireplaces. But you won’t come to stay inside: The resort is located on 13 acres surrounded by lakes, skiing, and fishing. Finish the day with a hot-stone massage at the award-winning Creekside Spa. The on-site Eagle’s Landing Restaurant serves made-to-order omelets, French toast, and more for breakfast. They also serve lunch and dinner (try the Kobe beef burger or their fish tacos).
