Victory lodge - the crown jewel of the sierra nevada

Victory lodge is an architectural masterpiece set against the backdrop of the magnificent sierra nevada mountains of california. Directly overlooking gull lake, this exclusive private residence offers spectacular views of carson peak and the june lake ski area. One of the largest log home structures ever built, the unique trophy property offers abundant space and privacy. Masterful craftsmanship and attention to detail are the hallmarks of victory lodge, an epically proportioned mountain estate built as a multigenerational legacy home.

Built with class and distinction

The massive log-and stone structure, which encompasses 16,500 square feet, blends rustic western frontier flavor with luxurious contemporary finishes and amenities. Victorian era antiques, fine furnishings and exquisitely wrought bronze and millwork throughout complement and enhance the rugged airy interiors.

A circular drive leads to the front portico, which is flanked by huge stone columns. Upon entering the residence, one is awed by the majestic dual staircase made of perfectly matched split logs. Just beyond the foyer is the expansive great room, where a towering wall of windows showcases breathtaking lake and mountain views. The world’s largest elk antler chandelier graces the great room from the thirty foot ceiling, and a hand-laid stone fireplace with copper finishes commands a central position. Another highlight is a thirty-eight foot beam with elaborate hand-carved detailing. A variety of seating areas invite both large scale entertaining and intimate conversation.

Great place for a larger group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the victory lodge for 5 nights. It was absolutely beautiful. It was spacious enough for our large group and the home has a great layout. The location is superb. We cooked every meal in the kitchen during our stay and it had all the equipment we needed. We enjoyed our stay and had a great experience. The caretaker was helpful and he security deposit was returned promptly.

Truly an amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Our Family and a few others truly enjoyed our stay here. Not sure there is a better home anywhere snow falls than this one. So much space and so many little extras made this place an amazing location to spend our holiday. The care taker (Evan) Was very kind and extremely helpful and really made us feel like this was our home. I would highly recommend the Victory lodge to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience! Caesar Ruiz

Victory Lodge - Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted my daughters wedding and brought in the New Year at Victory Lodge on 12/31/16! The facility hosted 80 guests all indoor! The wedding was held on the main floor that pictured snow cap mountains from their wall to wall windows - awesome! The separate gourmet kitchen assisted the "top notch" staff to prepare a buffet style dinner in the downstairs saloon style room. The living quarters for all the family guests were amazing. All rooms had their own bathroom and gorgeous views.

More important was the support and professionalism of the staff at June Lake and Mammoth Mountain. Thank you all for making this memorable night and spectacular event ! You guys rocked it!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

If its at all possible to be bored in the Eastern Sierra, this is an amazing sanctuary to return to after a day out on one of the lakes. Our hosts, Tom (owner) and John (caretaker) were gracious and fantastic to work with, both pleasant and approachable. Being frequent visitors to June Lake, we have seen the Victory Lodge and walked past it many times. After staying ther, it will be hard to stay anywhere else. I was worried it was a bit far from the village, but a path down connected to the path around Gull made for a quick escape to the Marina, June Lake Brewing, Cathy's Candy or the Tiger Bar. Did I mention this place it HUGE!!!! We played foosball, shuffleboard and pool at night; had a move night, a talent show and a pinball tournament. We watched deer come visit every day, and stargazing on the back deck every night. In the morning, fishing, swimming, hiking or just relaxing. Our large group never had any issues with space; quite the contrary, I got in my daily 10,000 steps just looking for people throughout this cavernous estate!

My ONLY "negative" feedback; the kitchen is so large, finding things became its own game! It needs someone to organize it.

We loved staying at the Victory Lodge and look forward to finding another reason to stay there.
