Pinecrest Chalet is the perfect mountain resort. The property is so peaceful and well taken care of. Now under new ownership, we’ve seen many changes happening including lots of renovations! I highly would recommend the Chalet if you’re looking for a relaxing upscale getaway with family or friends. Also, it is so close to dodge ridge and the lake which made things very convenient for us! Staff was very friendly and accommodating! Can’t wait to return Summer 2020!

Traveling with two teenagers, we're always looking for lodging where each kid can get their own bed, so the loft (#8) seemed like the perfect option -- queen bed with a loft that accommodates two twins. But the term "loft" should be used very lightly here, because it's more like an overhead luggage rack that fits two twins. The ceiling over one was so low, it seemed like sleeping in a coffin so my son ended up sleeping on the floor next to our bed instead. The location is very close to Dodge Ridge, the management was very nice and responsive, and the whole site has a very cute rustic village feel with a little brook running right behind it. We would consider staying there again in a bigger place, but we want to make sure another family with larger children doesn't make this mistake. I included photos so you can see what the cabin is like. They mean for the "loft" to be for little children, apparently. Also, my teens want people to be aware that the wifi is not great.

Some of the lodgings are nice. Ours was nice but tiny. We had a shed (#3) called Birch. You walk in, there’s a bunk bed that has a full bed on the bottom and a single on the top. No sheets except a fitted sheet and blankets. There’s a bathroom vanity for your toiletry needs AND dishwashing needs. Nothing like cleaning a plate and getting a hair on it at the same time. There’s an itty bitty shower and a separate room for the toilet. You’ll have a microwave, dorm room fridge, and a cabinet filled with some plates and utensils. You’ll also have a pot that self heats for hot water when plugged in and a French press for coffee that’s provided. It was clean but sooooo tiny for 3 adults. If you stay here, tell them you have at least 4 people, so that you can have roomier accommodations, even if it’s only 2 of you. Our shed was like a Kamping KOA kabin, but not as cute

We family of 4 with 3 dogs stayed at 2 bedroom townhouse ground floor unit G. It was good size room for us. We enjoyed our time here. Check in was easy. I like there were DVD for us to borrow at lobby. We watched some old school movie with our kids. Kitchen had most everything we need. The bed were comfy and hot water was running ok! We hang out at backyard hill with kids and dogs a lot. There was plenty snow for us to play and dogs wondering around. We bought some board game to here play and also went to ski at ski resort. It was about less than 10 minutes drive. We went for hike at Pinecrest Lake on new year day. We walked in the lake. That was pretty awesome! I will recommend Pinecrest Chalet to family and friends👍

When we arrived the snow was still thick, it was the end of the season and coming from England I did not appreciate how high up we were, let alone that it would be snowy. It was amazing to come from sun bathing weather in Stockton to the fresh air of Pinecrest. Our chalet was so cosy plenty of room for the 4 of us for a 2 night stay. Created happy memories there. We were on a road trip around California so I would thoroughly recommend here. It was a 2 and half hour drive to Yosemite and a marvelous scenic journey there. Loved it there
