We've stayed here twice now for an annual trip we do with 7 families--and it is awesome! The entire staff took great care of us with meals and activities to keep even the little kids in our group (all under 11 years old) fed and entertained. We love the fact that the kids can roam freely in the beautiful woods...

This place is not fancy, but it is lots of fun. We had the Programming and Food options and happy we got both. The food is simple, but hearty. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. This was a great Winter Lair experience!

We just returned from a Winter Lair weekend at Pinecrest Chalet. Fresh air, clean and quiet accommodations, good food cooked by someone else (not me!)... As long-time campers at the Family Camp next door (Lair of the Bear) we felt we were in the lap of luxury in our cozy little cabin with gas fireplace and full bathroom (!) plus...

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...

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...

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...
