Lake Placid Lodge condo description
Newly renovated 2 bedroom condo in Whistler's Creekside - Beautiful new marble shower and a birch tree feature wall which inspired the woodsy decor.
Ground floor - Spacious layout - in the newly renovated Lake Placid Lodge at the base of Whistler's Creekside Gondola.
You're coming to Whistler for a vacation... what's more important than being right at the base of a Chairlift?
How about being right at the base of the Creekside Gondola, where you can upload with the locals and avoid the crowds first thing in the morning? How about also having a Starbucks right across the street? A grocery store? Liquor Store? A Cold Beer & Wine Store? And of course it wouldn't be a ski vacation without experiencing the apres ski scene.
You'll deserve a big meal and some drinks after a day on the mountain. Dusty's is the best apres ski bar in town, especially if you want some local flavour, great music and drink specials... and a sprawling patio with a fire in the middle of it for the sunny days. If you like the Dusty's atmosphere a little too much and end up with a few too many drinks in you, just crawl down one flight of stairs and you're HOME! The recently renovated Lake Placid Lodge has a beautiful hot tub with room for the whole family or all the buddies you've brought along with you, as well as a pleasantly heated pool and sauna, with a covered BBQ area just steps from our ground floor condo's door.
We have plenty of parking spaces in the secure underground parkade, and you'd be right across the street from Whistler world class transit bus stop that will take you into the bustling village area if you get sick of the 8 restaurants ranging from Subway, to Boston Pizza, to Whistler finest dining experience at the Rim Rock Cafe, all within a 1 - 10 minute walk. Whistler also has a great taxi service to shuttle you home from the village if you don't feel like hopping on the bus after enjoying some of the best nightlife in the world. It's about a 7 minute drive from Creekside and you will instantly get back into relaxation mode when you get back to the quieter end of town, and crawl into bed to get ready to wake up and do it all again!

Great Location Great Owner
Great Location Great Owner
We stayed over Christmas and our rental experience and stay was fantastic. The owner/manager went out of the way to help, including setting up and decorating a real Chrismas Tree. The location may not exactly be ski-in/ski-out, but it's a short walk across the street. The unit is on the ground floor and could not be any closer to the entrance/exit. I would highly recommend this property and owner.

Owner response: Thank you for the feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I've always called anything that's less than a 1 minute walk from where you click out of your skis "ski in/ski out", especially if it's a shorter walk than it would be to the closest parking lot, like ours is. A lot of the properties that advertise this feature in Whistler are well over a 5 - 10 minute walk... it's just through a pedestrian zone, as opposed to across a side street. I could be more specific on the listing it you think it was misleading, but typically the Lake Placid Lodge is classified as ski in/ski out, and the map on the listing shows the exact location. I really appreciate all of the nice things you said too, don't get me wrong! Thank you for your business and for being such a great tenant!

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid Lodge:
I never want to leave Whistler and this is the first place I have been able to purchase, after having grown up in town and skied all over the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
-the location is unbeatable: the exterior pic of the building and the shot of the gondola are taken from the same spot, I just pivoted! -I'll be happy to provide some expert local knowledge for restaurants, my favorite ski runs, etc... -you'll have 2 parking spots in the secure underground -ground floor, right at the entrance makes for less walking in ski boots -I will lend you my extra Oakley ski gear if you'd like
Lake Placid Lodge in Whistler's Creekside - ours is Unit 101 - ground floor, as close as you can possibly be to the ski lift!
Looking from the Living Room at the Dining Room, with the Kitchen in the Background - Loft Style Living Space with High Ceilings
From the dining room looking at the living room and new desk/sitting area behind the couch for extra space - can also put a futon mattress on the floor there if needed
Newly renovated, spacious kitchen with brand new appliances, including a beautiful full-sized fridge
...our favorite part of the renovation... a beautiful polished marble shower with rainfall showerhead
2nd Bedroom that Looks out at Creekside Village and up at Sproatt Mtn.
Now you're at the top of the stairs and you've turned around to have a look at your place (ground floor, as close as you can get to that main entrance)...
The Creekside Bridge across where the busses from Vancouver will drop you off... looking straight at the Creekside Gondola early in the morning - all just outside your place!
View up the Mountain from the same spot on the Bridge. Behind you, you'll find Starbucks, one of Whistler's 3 main grocery stores, a bank, a liquor store, a cold beer & wine store, restaurants and more - all part of Creekside Village
Black Tusk from the top of Whistler Mountain. Walk out your door and hop on the ski lift... there isn't a place in Whistler that will allow you to get to the very top of Whistler Mountain to see this view quicker than you can from Creekside.
