Pinecrest Chalet

Nestled between Pinecrest Lake, Dodge Ridge ski resort, and the Lair of the Golden Bear family camp, the Pinecrest Chalet is a mountain resort offering 23 amenity-filled cottages and chalets. The Chalet features programming through the Summer Adventure Program and Winter Lair, and is a unique venue for weddings, family reunions, and corporate retreats.
