Property description

Bear Trail Inn is a free-standing authentic Austrian-style heritage chalet located on a large, treed hillside lot adjacent Lost Lake Park and trails. The Roote brothers who were pioneers in Whistler started the elaborate valley trail system literally right out back so our chalet feeds directly into the well-maintained biking/skiing/and pedestrian trails.

The chalet has been updated with heated floors, new bathrooms, new appliances and windows and counter tops in 2015 but still maintains it's rustic charm with it's 12 foot knotless cedar clad ceiling and pine and cedar throughout. Enjoy our new and improved hot-tub but return guests also like the spacious cedar indoor sauna. 10 thousand dollars worth of new beds for the Olympics which were held in 2010.

Great for skiing and mountain biking it is a 10 minute walk to the Village and both mountains and a 2 minute ride to the bike park and Gondola. Or, if you want to take the 5 minute bus ride the bus stop is a 3 minute walk away - just far enough to warm you up but not tire you out!

Keywords: Great hot-tub outside this authentic Austrian-style mountain chalet - perfect for a short stay or book long term

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Pam and Rod Thompson are long time local ski pros and Rod is now officially retired so along with more skiing Rod will help Pam with Property Management. Pam and Rod both find time to volunteer with the Whistler Mountain Ski Club, the Skating Club, and play softball with our 3 grown kids; Marielle (World Skicross Champion and Olympic Gold Medallist in Sochi and Canadian Champion, Broderick (World U21 GS Champion in France 2013 and 2015 Super G Champion), and recently World Cup competitor on National Alpine Team, and Tess figure skates and is recently Regional Champion and is hoping to get into Disney on ice and enjoys recreational skiing. The whole family help run the chalet. We can recommend the best restaurants and fun activities in and around Whistler for all ages - please just ask and we will be happy to help you plan your perfect vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Whistler, BC, Canada:
Bear Trail Inn is located in the best near-village subdivision of White Gold Estates. Walk to world-famous Whistler Village and to both Whistler and Blackcomb. The cross-country trails are directly behind the chalet and the alpine slopes are close by; great hot-tub and sauna and a very quiet location.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We love the hot-tub after a day on the slopes or after hiking and absolutely love being able to walk out the back yard onto the Lost Lake Trails. Our Finnish guests love our big indoor cedar sauna which has been refreshed summer 2013. You can really get lost here in nature but the world-class village for all sorts of restaurant enjoyment are just a short walk away too. When the whole chalet is not rented Pam runs it as a B&B or B&D so please ask should you wish to have catered meals for a competitive fee - advance reservations always required. We have done weddings/cocktail parties/small corporate events so if we can be any help to you in planning your Whistler vacation or long-stay please just ask.
