My son and I spent a lovely night at Pinecrest Chalet. The location is absolutely perfect. After driving the 3 hours from San Jose - we checked in. The cabin was clean and spacious. The bed was comfy and the heater worked really well! Before the reception office closed at 5pm, we borrowed some movies for the evening and took...

We stayed in the "Dodge" Chalet. Upon walking into the chalet we were all struck by the awful stench that filled the kitchen/living room area. It was awful. My kids named it the "smellet" instead of chalet. We tried to make the best of it and figured we would be gone most of the time skiing anyways. Really at this...

My fiance and I are having our wedding at the Pinecrest Chalet in October, and they invited us to stay the night to experience the property before the big day. We stayed two nights in Muir, and it was amazing. The cabin has been recently renovated (it's the one they recommend as the "honeymoon cabin" for the wedding couple) and...

There truly aren't enough words to describe just how wonderful and amazing the Pinecrest Chalet and its staff are, but I will try my best to encapsulate just how grateful my husband and I are to have gotten married there. We were recently married at the Chalet on the weekend of 10/15/16, and I have to say, we could not...

This property is owned by the UC Berkeley alumni association. We were there in between seasons, so the facility felt somewhat empty. It is more like renting a cabin than a full-fledged resort. That said, the cabin was comfortable, with quality bedding and towels. The cabin we stayed in had a small kitchen, but only one pot, so if I...

Omg! So terribly terribly TERRIBLY disappointed as to what has happened to our once beloved Pinecrest Chalet!! I can't even explain how horrible it is now...so pricey but what for?

The Pinecrest Chalet is a beautiful location. The cabins were fantastic and accommodated our family well. The bigger cabins can very comfortably hold a large family, but even the smaller cabins had room for 2 adults and 2 children. The view was phenomenal and the hotel sits right next to a river! The hotel is near multiple attractions for both...

We chose to stay at Pinecrest chalet because of its close vicinity to Dodge Ridge. We stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet that had a full kitchen (stove, oven, refrigerator, and microwave). The chalet was overall clean, on the well-worn side. Functional for certain. Kitchen stocked with just enough place settings and just enough other stuff, but you can make...
