About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms+Loft area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Welcome to Calhoun's Whistler Getaway - Friends and Family Gather Here.

Calhoun's is a great place to come home to after a day enjoying everything Whistler has to offer. Open the door and you're greeted by a comfortable, friendly and luxurious environment. Gather round the large dining room table and share your adventures from the day - many tales have been exchanged here. Curl up by the fire with a good book or movie, or just gaze out the window and enjoy the mountain view. People tell us they enjoy staying 'home' at Calhoun's just as much as going out.

Our guests often ask 'what's the difference between Whistler Village and Whistler Creekside?' Whistler Creekside is the original Whistler base and has the 'local feel'. It's on the south end of the valley, closest to Vancouver and 5 minutes from Whistler village. The Creekside base area is family friendly and quiet at night, yet Dusty's Pub is one of the best apres ski spot in Whistler. The entire family can enjoy great food and live music after a day on the slopes. I enjoy visiting the action of Whistler Village to people watch and shop and I love to come home to Creekside and enjoy a meal at one of the great local restaurants or even better, dinner at Calhoun's!

Our home is made better by the people we share it with. Come and enjoy everything Calhoun's has to offer:

About Jack and Lesley

We are a family of 4 who live near Vancouver. Our family loves the outdoors and takes every opportunity to ski, hike and bike. Owning a property in Whistler has been a dream of ours for many years and we are happy to share our Whistler home with others. We also love to travel and have had experiences staying in vacation homes around the world. We know what we like when we're vacationing and we have worked hard to bring those amenities to our Whistler home.

Jack and Lesley purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jack and Lesley chose Whistler

We searched the Whistler area thoroughly for our vacation property and were absolutely thrilled with what Lake Placid offers. In our opinion, this is hands down one of the best properties in the area. Our list of 'must- haves' was quite high - easy access to the ski hill ( we have two small children); a pool and hottub to enjoy apres ski and year round; an updated and secure building in a convenient location. Lake Placid has it all!

What makes this condo unique

We love the location! I smile everytime I make the 90 second walk to the gondola. I also love the view we have from our livingroom window. I can look down and see the pool and hottub or look up and see the moon rising over a forested mountain. Lake Placid also has easy access to groceries, Starbucks, liquor store and we are always running out for 'one more thing'. One of my favourite things to do is walk or bike into Whistler village with my family for dinner. The walk is gorgeous - paved trails through the forest and by the lakes. When we're done we hop on the bus and return to our quiet and relaxing condo in Creekside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best vacation ever!!

We had a fabulous time in Whistler. One of the reasons why was because we stayed at this awesome condo. My favorite thing about this place is its location. It is a stone's throw away from the ski lift, restaurants and the grocery store, among other great things. My family had the best time skiing there. It is just a few minutes drive to the village, but I'm so glad that we didn't stay at the village because at Creekside, it is much calmer and peaceful. So if you're wondering where to stay, this is the place. The kids and I also loved the heated pool and the hot tub. It was very warm!! Loved that!

Also, I'd like to mention that Jack and Lesley made sure that everything was to our liking. They were so friendly and accommodating and made every effort to ensure that our vacation was the best vacation ever. Mission accomplished!!!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful about our stay in early January. The access to gondolas, ski hire, supermarket, liquor store, coffee and Dusty's is all so easy. The apartment is well stocked with all the essentials which made our stay very comfortable, and a clean was scheduled halfway through our visit, which was much appreciated. The upstairs kid's area meant everyone got to relax at the end of the day (with netflix on all tv's) and the lounge room is cosy when we all wanted to get together again. The well stocked kitchen had everything we needed when we chose to cook at home. Jack and Lesley were extremely helpful on check in, making sure we were well acquainted with everything, and kindly extended checkout at the end of the stay, which suited our transfers. If only we were still there, as it was a fantastic holiday.

I have been to Whistler many times but this was my families first visit. I love Creekside for it’s quieter family ambience and great mountain access. This Condo ticked all the boxes for our family group of 7 (6 adults). Very well kept home with everything you could need and right accross the road from Creekside gondola and Dusty’s, arguably Whistler’s best apré bar. Local supermarket, liquor store and ski shop had everything we needed with one of Whistler’s best restaurants (The Red Door) just down the road. And for stepping out, main village is only 10 mins away on the shuttle. Jack and Lesley are great hosts and available to help with any issue or simple friendly local advice. We loved it and would stay again.

We had a great stay at the condo. We really enjoyed the easy access from the slopes. The kitchen is fully stocked as advertised and it is a very comfortable place.

Great Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! One of the great attributes of this condo. Two minute walk across the street to the gondola. Our group spent 7 nights / 6 days of skiing there. Snow conditions were A+.

Having 5 beds really made it great for us since we are 5 old guys. Plenty of room for everyone. The condo had everything needed to entertain us when we were off the mountain. We ate in every night and the kitchen had everything we needed, and more. We had 3 friends down the hall that joined us for dinners and there was plenty of room at the table for all. The card games were especially fun.

If you're looking for comfort at night (the loft bed was awesome!), ease and convenience for staying in après ski and easy access to the mountain, look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Great location! As disclosed by the host this property is in Creekside and not the Village, which was great for us. Creekside doesn't have a huge number of restaurants and stores, but it does have a little bit of everything within a couple blocks. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable, TV's worked great, kitchen had everything we needed, parking was easy, instructions were detailed and they even have in unit laundry.
