We visited Pinecrest Lake for the first time and stayed at this very small hotel. Most of the accomodations on the property are cabins or camping. It is a very basic room, but clean. It was great to have a place to retreat to after spending the day at the lake. Pinecrest lake is so amazingly beautiful. Plus, there is... More

After a very stressful month and recovering from shoulder surgery, we decided to get away for my Sweetheart's birthday. The lake is so beautiful and serene. We decided to splurge and stay at the resort. The location is awesome and the space is wonderful for a large group. There have been some upgrades to the townhouse (#6), but it would... More

My family has been staying at Pinecrest Lake resort in the condos for nearly 10 years. We tried renting a home the first year we traveled to this area and we felt isolated. The resort has two cute stores and a restaraunt, as well as access to the lake and miles of trails. We love it here. There are a... More

Pinecrest Lake Resort sits in a beautiful location. We stayed in a townhouse and it was very large, but sparsely furnished. It was very clean and smelled fresh. There was a beautiful outdoor deck with a BBQ that was fairly private. Unfortunately, the beds were not too comfortable and there wasn't much privacy as the walls are thin. A big... More

We stayed here for the weekend with our two young boys. It was our first time to Pinecrest. We stayed in one of the motel rooms. The rooms are pretty basic but clean and roomy. Plenty of room for four people. The beds are a little uncomfortable but other than that no real complaints. The motel room is about a... More

Staff were rude to my Mother and Aunt when they went up to finish final payment. However, when we got there, Sierra was so sweet and she could not have been nicer. I do feel that the staff was supportive of our parking lot use for our party. They were also very nice when we needed to do a linen... More

We stayed at Pinecrest lake resort for 2 nights. the place was quiet, calm and nice. It is located very close to dodgeridge which was convenient. we could walk to the frozen lake from room which was nice. The restaurant and the cafe were good too. Overall we had a pleasant stay and we enjoyed staying here.

We camped in the Pinecrest campground in our trailer, I hadn't been there in over 10 years but I booked 4 nights for my husband and two boys and was very pleasantly surprised. We couldn't have been happier, the campground is so spacious (not cramped like so many are) and lush with trees and grass. The lake was a short... More

We camped here at Pinecrest Lake Resort for a week. Absolutely a beautiful setting. The campsites are very nice and spread out. Great fishing, camping, relaxing in an awesome setting. Problems are the showers are a drive away and the organization of campers in n out at the Resort is suspect. Overall a great experience!

We stayed in the Pinecrest Lake Resort motel building. It was not luxurious, but was clean, pleasant, and well-maintained. We were mainly there to catch trout, so accommodations were a bit secondary, BUT we also have discerning tastes. We finally had a chance to try the Steam Donkey restaurant there for dinner last night. We've historically had really mediocre food... More
