Private Homes house description

Relax in your very private hot tub, sunk into a 900 square foot wrap-around deck, surrounded by trees, and overlooking a beautiful swimming lake accessed from a dock by the property.

This idyllic retreat is truly the best of both worlds; perfectly positioned for winter and summer vacations. Many windows and two sets of French doors opening onto the large wrap-around deck make this fully-equipped home light and bright in all seasons.

Situated in a natural, rural setting amongst the trees, you can enjoy privacy while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck and enjoying the view of the lake. Cross-country ski, mountain bike, hike or walk - off the beaten track - directly from your door.

The lake is regularly frozen in the winter and ice skating is possible. In the summer the lake is exceptionally warm and is perfect for swimming with access from the dock situated on the property. Walk or take your boat over to the two beaches on the lake. Snow and water toys are available for your use or you can use the private tennis courts.

Located in a private, gated estate 15 minutes south of the Whistler Creek Gondola, with access to some of the best skiing in North America and the many fine restaurants, stores, and entertainment available in Whistler. From this rural, relaxing oasis you can enjoy everything that Whistler has to offer.

                    My family and I spent a very enjoyable holiday in this lovely spot. The cabin was extremely comfortable, cozy and well-equipped. It is a bit of a drive to the mountain but if it's a peaceful country retreat you want, you'll get that here, and we found it relaxing to get back to such a tranquil setting after spending the day in the village. Our host Richard was kind and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend this holiday rental.

                    Our family and two of our kid's friends spent the New Year's week at this rental. Everyone had their own comfortable bed in this rental. The kitchen and dining room table were large enough to accommodate at least 8 people. When the hot tub malfunctioned the owner had it fixed within 24 hours. The rental is in a very quite community so no problem with neighbors keeping you up. It's a 10 minute drive to the Creekside lift with underground parking. Very reasonably priced compared to staying in Whistler Village. I would stay at this rental again.

                    Hi Richard, we wanted to add our review to your listing because we had such a terrific time in your log home. Our four year old son is still asking us four months later when we can go back to the 'cabin house'. We had 2 young families stay in the home and we had so much space for our little ones to run around and play inside and outside. We were pleasantly surprised to find a well equipped pantry of supplies in the kitchen to make our stay more comfortable. The walk to the playground and beach area made for great daily trips for the kids and we basked in the beauty of Black Tusk while the kids played. It was a short 10 minute drive to whistler village which allowed us to enjoy the village amenities during the day and to escape to e tranquility of the log home in the evenings where we spent much time sitting on the deck or enjoying the hot tub outside. We hope to stay again soon with the kids and to bring our paddleboard out to enjoy the lake even more. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

                    My family and I had a wonderful visit to this cottage last weekend. The property was very comfortable and fully equipped, even with games and toys for the little ones. It was clear that the owner had put in a lot of effort into this cottage. There is a short walkway that leads to a dock on small lake,which was perfectly still in the early morning. Pinecrest is an ideal place to explore the Whistler area without having to be in the bustle of Whistler village. I would recommend this property to others.

                    We had an excellent time during our short stay at this home. My wife and I, two teenagers, my mom, and a small parrot (!) enjoyed the hot tub, barbecue, expansive deck, peaceful location and very comfortable beds. We also spent a couple of hours on the tennis courts and took in nature with some nearby hikes. While we did get up into the Whistler village, the owner is so right in saying that Whistler is for the party crowd and Pinecrest is for people who just want to relax and unwind and spend quality time with family. I spent an afternoon just sitting on the chairs on the dock, letting my stress melt away. Thanks Richard - I'd recommend this place to friends and relatives, and we’ll be back to check this place out during the winter!

                    Beautiful house with a lot of space inside, nice rooms and a hot tube on the terrace (our children were very keen of it !), but the best thing was to be close to the lac with a direct access for swimming, doing canoe or paddle board. After a day of hiking, it was really pleasant such water-based activities. And the area is very nice also, if you like mountains of course ! Maybe the best stage of our trip in Canada.

                    Stayed here for 4 days, with 4 adults. The place was well prepared and had nice amenities for guest use. Pinecrest is about 15 minute drive to Creekside and another 10 minutes into the main Whistler Village so it's near the local action (provided you have a car) but in a quiet cabin setting on the water. Richard was helpful in settling all the details ahead of time.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1992

                  About the owner: Chartered accountant, originally from the UK,living in Vancouver since 1980. Currently CFO of a B.C. crown corporation. My wife Therese is a hairstylist and we have 3 grown boys, who do not seem to want to leave home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We searched throughout southern B.C. for a vacation home and were extremely lucky to find Pinecrest Estates. There are only 75 homes in the estate and the ones on the lake never change hands. It has the perfect year-round appeal. It truly is a slice of Canadiana for a Brit like me. Snow, skate and ski. Mountains, canoeing, swimming and forest. Away from all of the shops and crowds in Whistler, but close enough if you need it. Plus the logs ... so cozy.
