Looking for a place where your group can all fit together in comfort? With a living room and eating spaces able to accommodate you all... together... Pinetree Chalet provides the perfect 'home base' in Whistler. Kick back, relax & make yourself at home.


Whistler's Emerald Estates peaceful subdivision is central to Whistler's abundance of year-round activities. We're four miles from the action of Whistler Village. Hike, ski, golf, swim, boat, skate, horse ride, river raft, zipline... your choices are practically endless! Green Lake is a short walk from the chalet that offers boating and water sports in the warmer seasons, and skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing when frozen.


From your well equipped kitchen with bar-style island, to the dining area overlooking the sunken living room the open-style flow is perfect for entertaining - with just enough separation. The living room has comfy leather couches and additional bench seating - perfect for relaxing after a day in the great outdoors.

Stone, massive beams, granite, wrought iron, wood, leather and lodge quilts will remind you you've left the city behind.


• Dining table seats 10 (with bench seating for flexibility); adjacent kitchen island has 5 stools. Seats a total of 15 in comfort at mealtimes.

• Living room has 2x 3-seat couches, loveseat, 2 armchairs - 10 can comfortably gather on leather seating. Additional bench seating for 8 more in the living room. Living room can accommodate 18.

• Total of 15 people in 11 separate beds - no bunks. We provide premium bedding for all beds and mats.

• Additional 7 half-king high density mats available in the large rooms. Although mats are comfortable for adults the configuration may not be ideal for mature adults.


At bedtime you'll find 2 huge master suites... EACH capable of sleeping up to 9 per room.

Bedrooms 3 & 4 are small queen bedrooms that are perfect for 1 or 2 in each.

Each bed has a featherbed or memory foam topper and premium bedding for a deep, restful sleep.

About Virginia

Pinetree Chalet grew its roots in 1989. We purchased the chalet as an activity-filled home base for our family to vacation and entertain at. Over the years we've rented it periodically to select rentals. Our family has grown up and out. With 5 grown "kids" we are delighted to share in the care and use of Pinetree Chalet. We love to welcome people looking to explore the beauty of Whistler and take part in the many activities around the area. We think the peaceful area of Emerald Estates is the perfect home-base to take it all in. Our home that we call Pinetree Chalet... from the remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, furniture and finishing touches... have been updated to reflect how we want Pinetree Chalet to be for years to come. And we're constantly planning new projects to make it the best possible home base in Whistler. We focus on and look forward to each group that calls Pinetree Chalet home. We hope you enjoy it!

Why Virginia chose Whistler

We love Emerald Estates! It is a beautiful 7-minute drive from the action of Whistler Village and yet the neighborhood is so peaceful - it's the best of both worlds. As we drive along and see scenic Green Lake on the right we just give a big sigh and life's problems just seem to melt away.

What makes this Chalet unique

The layout of the rooms and furniture allow for so much flexibility: -The two large master suites can EACH easily accommodate a family - even large families. A 3rd family of up to 4 can use the 2 queen-sized bedrooms. -It's great for 4 couples - large beds and private room for each couple - huge suites for the lucky ones in the master bedrooms with reading corner and seating area. -11 separate beds to sleep up to 15 in beds. Mats available for additional sleeping, if needed. -The dining area has benches for flexible seating, plus additional seating at the kitchen island. -Living room has lots of leather seating. Benches allow for additional space when needed. -The house is within walking distance to beautiful Green Lake (also the only lake in Whistler that allows motor watercraft). There is a private park with play area nearby, and a beautiful 20-minute 'loop walk' with interesting houses. Other little-known walks in the area.

                                                                  We had a family reunion in Whistler and this place was a great fit. We had toddlers playing in the living room while parents chatted or cooked in the kitchen. There is a lot of room here for pack'n'plays, extra mattresses and toys. The kitchen is very efficient with lots of seating for our whole group at a big family square table. I would highly recommend this for any kind of family-oriented get together in Whistler. The staff are super-friendly and very accommodating.

The website is excellent in providing all the information. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner, Virgiinia, is excellent and very helpful. She responds to your emails really quick and tries to do everything she can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The parking area can fit up to 4 cars which was perfect for us. This place is close to Whistler (about 10 minutes drive). The 2 master bedrooms are huge and spacious. The living room can well accommdate 12 people comfortably. It was a nice cozy living room for friends to gather around and talk. I would definitely come back here again!!!
