This lodge makes a great launching point for the trails in Graeagle and the Lakes Basin. Multiple trailheads are within a 10-15 minute drive, and if you have two cars then there are several shuttle options available. The owner of the lodge can point you in the right direction. The lodge itself is perfect to return to after a ride.... More

This is one of the most peaceful places we've ever stayed. The cabins are beautiful - simple but very well maintained. The food was consistently good. The stream going through the property is very tranquil and perfect to play in. Wish we could have stayed longer! Can't wait to go back!!

We have been coming to Grey Eagle Lodge for over 25 years and it just keep getting better and better. The cabins are cozy, comfortable and on a river. The staff is friendly, helpful and welcoming.

Great experience, awesome places to bring kids, as there is all kind of activities and accommodations for them. The creek running through the property is SO refreshing to dip into the swimming holes, and there are ankle-deep areas perfect for the tykes! It's also a great jumping-off point for back-packing the region and is a welcome sight when returning from... More

I loved the location, trails, beautiful scenery, and lots of water features, some swimmable. The food was well-above average and plentiful. I did not find the hosts especially dog-friendly, even though they advertised themselves that way. You do not have the option to eat outside with your dogs, so I left mine tied up (in the designated dog area) and... More

Gray Eagle Lodge's first priority is to our human guests. When guests have dogs that are suffering from nervousness and separation anxiety, we often ask guests to move their dog to a location where the dog might feel more comfortable. While we are pet friendly, when we have other guests that complain about dog behavior, we do put the human... More

The best place in the Sierra for a weekend getaway. The new chef will remind you of favorite restaurants in San Francisco--try the soup of the day! We go at least twice a year, every year, and wish we could go more. Make your reservations early. The owners are so much fun and make the visit even more memorable. It... More

I had the pleasure of visiting the restaurant and grounds of this delightful place recently, and most of the food was outstanding! The Salmon was especially good, the garlic mashed potatoes very flavorful, and the vegetables prepared perfectly. The best part was the desserts! We shared the mud pie, brownie mess, and apple raspberry cobbler, and all three were delicious.... More

We just left Graeagle lodge and our best family vacation ever. We've already booked for next year. This is the kind of place where generations come year after year, and for good reason. Our children were thrilled with G.E.L. too. If you want to unplug and bask in high elevation wilderness without the fuss of camping, this is for you.... More

We love our annual trip to GEL. The food is delicious, the cabins are cozy and the hosts are wonderful. Each year, we choose a different hiking destination and with so many choices, we won't run out of new adventures for years. Can't wait for next year!
