 Located at 5,600 feet in beautiful Pinecrest, California, Pinecrest Chalet is owned and operated by the Cal Alumni Association (UC Berkeley) - and everyone is welcome! The Chalet offers a variety of accommodations to meet the mountain lodging needs of any size family or group.

Popular mini-chalets promise quaint lodging in one-room cabin suites complete with fully stocked kitchens, gas burning fireplaces, full baths, two queen size beds and cathedral knotty pine ceilings. Guests also have the option to choose a more intimate chalet featuring a king sized bed and Jacuzzi tub. Spacious townhouses and deluxe cabins offer two to four bedrooms, fully stocked kitchens, and large living rooms with wood burning fireplaces, perfect for family and group entertaining. If simplicity is more your style, non-kitchen cottages offer lodging amenities at a very modest price. These one room bungalows sleep two to four and include shower baths and basic cooking conveniences.
Though first and foremost a family-oriented recreation resort,  ski clubs, church groups, hiking clubs, scout troops, and wedding parties are also welcome. During the summer season, guests enjoy swimming in a heated pool nestled among towering pines. There is an amphitheatre, seasonal basketball, volleyball, disc golf, and horseshoes. Wi-Fi and coffee service are complimentary. Guests can indulge in an extensive array of activities at nearby Pinecrest Lake, including swimming, fishing, hiking, bird watching, and watercraft fun. In winter, you’ll be just minutes away from a fantastic family ski and riding experience at Dodge Ridge Ski Area.
