I rented a townhouse that sleeps 14 for our family and two friends from Aug. 16-21, and we all enjoyed our stay immensely. The house was basically clean, but there were spots on the rug, rips in the bedspreads and an unpleasant smell in certain ares of the first floor. This didn't bother us that much because we were out... More

Wow! I am so surprised to see these reviews. While I agree that it is a nice setting and the staff is nice, it is not enough to recommend it to anyone. We had a two story attached unit near the swimming pool. It has four bedrooms and two bathrooms with open holes in the walls. Dirty hand prints on... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay. Friendly staff, some of the cabins are rustic but clean and have a little charm to them. Very Peaceful and quiet surroundings. The Chalet is a great location if you are visiting Pinecrest lake. A little distance for walking to the beach if you have little ones.

The Chalet is the best place to stay while visiting the Lair of the Bear. It is the perfect location between the camp and lake. The entire staff is friendly and wonderful - Quinn, Nicole, Ken, Eric. It is clean, well managed and reasonably priced! I plan to go every 4th of July week!

Nice place to go with a big family. The wirelles works only near the office house. All chalets are shady and you do not see the sun arises. The receptionist was not gentle at all, he did not make me feel confortable to ask suggestions about sigthseeings around there. I guess that around pinecrest chalet should be better places to...

This resort is in the national forest, about 3 miles from Dodge Ridge ski area. We were there in February. The cabins are well stocked, full kitchens, coffee provided. There is a fireplace with firewood. There is a little stream behind the cabins, and lots of trails and recreational activities. The prices are reasonable, people very friendly.

We have stayed at the Chalet several times over the last five years. It is located very close to Dodge Ridge ski resort which allows for an easy drive up the mountain and back. The innkeepers are very nice and helpful. They are the main reason we continue to go back! We prefer to stay in the chalet cabins which... More

Pinecrest is a beautiful area and we were satisfied with our accommodations. We didn't have high expectations for our cabin, but everything was acceptable. Our room had a small fridge, tiny televison and a small bathroom and shower. The bed wasn't the most comfortable ever but wasn't terrible. The chalet surprisingly had wifi but coverage was definitely sporadic. The grounds... More

The staff worked with us and we were able to stay in a beautiful Chalet. Even though there were kids running around during the day it was not an issue - the kids playing was a comforting sound. It was very quiet at night and we enjoyed the little creek running below our chalet.
