                          Having lived in Whistler for 15 years and owned a property in nearly every area of Whistler, there is nowhere I would rather live than Nicklaus North. Not only the beauty of being on a golf course but the fact that it is close to the trails, Lost Lake Park and you can to savour what 'true Whistler' is all about. Nicklaus North is across the road from the Rec Center with ice skating ring, swimming pool, squash courts, fitness centre and regular fitness classes. The location is 1 km north of the Village which gets you out of the heavy winter traffic that heads south at the end of each ski day, you will be back to the house in 5 minutes. If you don't have a car or want to spend some time at the wonderful bars and restaurants in Whistler, there is a very convenient bus service that stops at the end of the road and operates every 15 mins from the village. Step right outside the door in summer and play golf. In winter, you can ski from the front door and get straight on the cross country trails. Sleigh rides are a big feature of Nicklaus North in the winter months.

                          About: We are long term residents of Whistler and have been involved in the tourism industry for many years. We have years of experience in owning and operating one of Whistler's most popular B&Bs and we love to give our guests the benefit of our knowledge of Whistler and the local area to make sure that your vacation is truly perfect. We can help organize transportation, organize activities, have reduced rates on ski tickets and offer a grocery shopping service so that everything is in place before you arrive. We will do our best to ensure that your vacation will be one to remember always.

                          Why Nicklaus North:
                          We recently acquired this property and we knew as soon as we walked in that it would be the perfect place for groups and families to come together to celebrate and spend time together. The layout of the house is such that you don't feel like you are on top of each other and the location is ideal for all. For non downhill skiers, there is cross country or snowshoeing right outside the front door. Across the road from the recreation centre that has a swimming pool and ice rink, state of the art gym and squash courts ensures that you and your kids will have lots to if you want to take a 'day off' from skiing.
