Echo Chalet is a high-Sierra, summer-only, resort located approximately 10 miles from South Lake Tahoe and 49 miles east of Placerville off U.S. Highway 50. The resort is a non-discriminatory establishment operated under permit of the United States Forest Service-Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
The Chalet was established in 1939, and Tom and Kathleen ("Kat") Fashinell have owned and managed it since 1984. We operate (weather permitting) from Memorial Day through the Labor Day weekend. Our rental cabins ("Chaletlees") are usually ready for occupancy by mid-June.
