A MOUNTAIN PARADISE

In an area renowned for fishing, hiking, birding, wildflowers and scenic beauty, you are surrounded by unexpected opportunities to view soaring eagles and osprey, deer, otters and a variety of other wildlife.

The original lodge, built in the 1940's by Audrey and George Browning, which later expanded, adding an additional dining room in the original chinked log construction, is complete with family heirloom furnishing, period lighting and memorabilia of the lodge's fishing and local history.

The Main Lodge is open daily at 8am for beverages, including beer and wine, snacks, bait & tackle, boat rentals and cabin reservations.  Alongside the main lodge, which also hosts a fine dining restaurant, are our nine handcrafted housekeeping cabins nestled among the pine trees.

We invite you to join us sharing all the joys of a summer vacation at "the lake".   Enjoy the peaceful rhythm of morning fishing in the mist, afternoon naps on your cabin porch, cocktails on the lake gazebo or find yourself settling into our lakeside restaurant for a unique culinary delight.  

Experience LIFE at Sardine Lake Resort.

What OTHERS ARE SAYING

Every year, since coming to the Lake as a child in 1953, I would walk immediately to the dock, the very same dock that my mother, father, brother, grandfather, old boyfriends, husband and our own children, now well into adulthood have stood. Looking up at one of the most majestic mountains in California, usually glaciered through most of summer, I take a deep breath of lake and forest and am grateful to know this place forever will be unchanged. The Browning and Hunt families have sacrificed all, working hard to steward and sustain this beautiful place.
