  • Great place/location

    "Us five girls rented this place for 3 days and it was awesome. The pictures don't do its justice. It is very clean and well maintained and comfortable/homey. It is beautifully decorated house with antiques all over. We just loved how close it was to the lake..since I had an ankle injury I was able to hobble over no problem. I would definitely use this again as a place to stay and recommend it to anyone. It is close to trails, the lake, tennis courts etc. Very good for any family to bring and ride their bikes as well. The place it well stocked as well. BBQ available and a nice area to sit outside with a view of the ravine/nature. We saw a couple of trains pass but it definitely was not a bad thing as this was a rare site. The lake itself is very warm and close to help you cool off on those hot days. Would definitely go back. :)"

  • Average condo, short walk to slopes

    "This was our first time to Whistler. The surroundings were majestic, the mountains gorgeous. It was beautiful! We typically stay at ski-in, ski-out (slopeside) condos when we travel and this one was a little misleading. Advertised as such, it was not. Pictures of private trails would give you the impression that it was slopeside, again, it was not. It was a short (less than 5 minute) walk up the hill to the Blackcomb Lodge’s entrance to the slope and once on that, an easy ride down to the Wizard Express. Coming home was a bit of a lengthy maze through the woods, but doable. The downsides were the wear and tear on the condo. The vertical blinds that were to cover the back patio door were half missing, the sheets in the master were so pilled and worn, it was like sleeping on old sheets. While there was a humidistat in the condo which made the air more comfortable, the towels were terribly mildew. Coming from Florida, we are used to mildew, but even multiple rewashing didn’t rid the towels of the scent. The hot tub was a very welcome addition and the fact that it was private made it even more special. The gas fireplace was a plus! Brigitta was quick to respond to our questions via email. However our concerns were not addressed, just merely noted such as needing a new battery for the garage door opener and the missing blinds. Overall, it was not a bad place to stay but it does need some updating, some thorough cleaning and some new linens to have us stay there again."

  • Getaway with kids - terrific

    "We stayed at this cabin over a weekend in July with our kids, as well as some friends and their kids. The large living room with the big comfy couch was wonderful for story time with so many kids - this cabin had everything we needed - and waking up in the morning to a view of the lake was stupendous. Very cozy cabin - the highlight was enjoying a retreat from the city on the large deck and taking the kayaks on the lake. The tranquil lake, playground and quiet area were wonderful for playing with the kids, and they're still asking when we can go back. Not to mention the BBQ is perfect for feeding lots of people! Will definitely go back. Highly recommend."

  • Location,location, location!!

    "I spent the summer of 2013 living in the house. The house is everything you see in the pictures and more. It is located in a quite neighborhood and valley trail is only 1-2 min walk from the end of the driveway. I parked my truck and didn't move it for weeks, it is so convent to town and everything Whistler has to offer. Avoid the crowds and stay here, you won't regret it. The owners are very helpful and quick to respond if any issues arise. I would recommend it to my friends, and I have!"

Whistler Travel Tips

Just two hours north of Vancouver you'll find Whistler, a top Canadian resort destination that's great for a visit year-round. This spot is situated near Whistler and Blackcomb mountains with a lively base village. In the winter, it's the perfect spot to enjoy hours of skiing, snowboarding and other exciting cold weather activities. When the weather warms up, Whistler offers championship golf courses, plenty of hiking and biking trails, and much more.

All year long you can peruse the variety of shops in Whistler and try the different bars and restaurants for delicious meals and drinks.

Whistler was so named for the furry animals in the area that sound like they're whistling. The area is centered around four main neighborhoods: Whistler Village, Village North, Upper Village and Creekside.

Cold Weather Activities

- Whistler Blackcomb: For some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the area, head to Whistler Blackcomb. This was the official skiing spot for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Whistler and Blackcomb are side-by-side mountains that offer collectively more than 200 marked runs, more than 8,000 acres of terrain, 14 alpine bowls and three glaciers. This spot receives more than 430 inches of snow each year, making it one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Whether you're an avid skier or snowboarder or it will be your first time on a run, you're sure to have a great experience with with so many different trail options.

- Sleigh rides: If you've traveled with your sweetheart or your family, a Blackcomb horse drawn sleigh ride is a must. It's a perfect way to enjoy the winter wonderland as you glide across the snow. Snuggle up under a warm, cozy blanket, sip hot chocolate and listen to the jingle bells as the Percheron draft horses pull you through the snow-covered forest trails.

- Snowshoe trails: Enjoy a winter walk with snowshoes. Whistler offers a variety of trails like Trapper's Trail, Natural Mystic Tour, Winter Wonderland and more where you can explore the natural scenery and keep an eye out for local wildlife. Snowshoeing is a fun activity for people of all ages, and you can rent snowshoes if you don't own a pair.

- Whistler Day Spa: After all the vigorous activities like skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, your body is bound to feel a little sore. Sooth your aching muscles and allow yourself to relax with a trip to the Whistler Day Spa. Massage therapists will work out painful knots and ease any tension built up in your body. Estheticians will care for your windblown skin with a healing, moisturizing facial. You can even treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure so your feet and hands sparkle.

- Barefoot Bistro: When it's chilly outside, there's nothing more comforting than a warm, delicious home-cooked meal. You'll find just that at Barefoot Bistro, a French bistro-style champagne bar and restaurant. Sip some some Dom Perignon (served by the glass) and dine on exceptional French cuisine. On most weekends, you can enjoy live jazz music.

Warm Weather Activities

- Amsterdam Cafe and Pub: When the weather is warm, you can spend a wonderful evening dining on the charming outdoor patio of the Amsterdam Cafe and Pub. Dine on traditional pub fare like shepherd's pie, burgers, pasta and more as you check out the local scenery.

- Hit the beach: In the summer months, spending time at the beach is a must, and Whistler provides a variety of options where you can soak up the sun and splash around in the water. Lakeside Park is great for families, with a kid's play area, picnic tables and a barbecue. Swim in the warm waters or rent a canoe, boat or windsurf for an adventure. Rainbow Park is another terrific option, with sandy shores, volleyball courts and a large dock floating offshore for swimmers to hang out.
