About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Skilled craftsman created this custom one of a kind timber-frame home that is a seven minute walk across HWY 99 from the Village North Marketplace and two minutes from the Valley Trails in prestigious Whistler Cay. Create vacation memories (minimum 4 night stay) for your family and friends in this former bed and breakfast. Quiet family neighborhood, perfect set-up for two to three families on holiday or a golf or ski get-away with friends. Minutes away from three world-class golf courses (Nicklaus, Whistler/Palmer, Chateau/Trent-Jones). Views of Whistler, Wedge, and Rainbow Mountains.

Tip your head back to admire the 35 foot chimney with old-world style, the focal point of the airy, naturally well-lit living room. Main floor features heated hardwood and tile floors. The dining area seats up to 20. Spacious, fully-equipped kitchen with ample counter-space. There are two sunny decks, parking onsite for three to four vehicles.

This is not a 'party' house; our rental policy includes an age and responsibility code. Resort Bylaws prohibit short term (1-3 night) stays in our neighborhood.

Master bedroom features queen log bed with private bath and access to deck. Rooms #1 and #2 each have two twin beds and shared bath. Room # 2 twins can be converted to a king bed. Room #3 has a queen and two twin beds, with private bath. Room #4 has a queen bed with private bath. Can sleep 9 singles in beds or up to 3 couples/6 singles in beds (12 people), additional guests(kids) on foam pads or sleeping bags.

Close to village for everything you want to do, but far enough away so you won't be disturbed by noisy revelers when late night parties/bars let out. Property is 5 minute drive to Whistler/Blackcomb main parking lot and upload to the mountains (across Hwy 99 on Lorimer Road-see mapquest for general map of area). Taxi or private vehicle recommended with ski/board gear. Bus stop is two blocks from the house. Village is easy 10 minute walk for dining and shopping.

Email owner directly for more information or to book. I typically respond within 24 hours. Security deposit of $600 due with signing of rental agreement. Full payment due 45 days prior to stay. Canadian visitors contact me directly for quote in CDN. VRBO calculation not always correct. (The Book It Now feature is enabled for this property. A signed rental agreement is required before booking is fully confirmed.Take a note that VRBO may send you an automated email cancelling the reservation within 24 hours. Don't despair. I hold the reservation open for several days pending receipt of the agreement. Our email exchanges to answer your questions, prepare, sign, and return a rental agreement, and confirm that our chalet is right for you, typically take 18-48 hours. Your patience will be rewarded with a wonderful Whistler holiday.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had dinner at Rimrock Sunday (sans children, their family went home earlier Sunday)... Amazing. Zip lining with "Super Fly"... Amazing. Hiking all over the place up high with Peak2Peak... Amazing. Views... Amazing. Your house... Amazing. Having all our kids/grandkids here to enjoy it with on our 40th... The most Amazing.

Thank you so much for all your help in setting this up. Count on a call to rent again, both from me and my oldest son.

Great time!! Just Amazing.

Wonderful accommodation, couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this accommodation was great. We had a thoroughly fantastic time. Close enough to get a nice walk to the village but far enough away from the hubbub that is the village.

There was nothing we needed that wasn't available in this great family home. We felt completely at home during our stay. Will definitely keep it in mind for future visits to Whistler.

Excellent Place; Difficult Payment

  • 4 of 5

The house is absolutely amazing. Some of our party stayed in the house most of the weekend and truly enjoyed the architecture of this wonderful post and beam place. The house has everything a large group could want. The location is probably too far for most to walk to the slopes with gear, but the village is close enough for most to walk to. One should figure on having a vehicle there for sure. The only glitch we had was having to Fed-Ex a paper check to the owner in Washington which was a first for me. I would certainly stay there again.

Owner's Response: We have updated our payment options. This guest booked within a couple weeks of the visit and preferred not to use electronic transfer for payment, hence the paper check hassle.

All the comforts of home...and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Our son was just married in Whistler and found this amazing, comfortable and affordable home for us. When we came through the front door, we couldn't have felt more at home. There were 9 adults and 2 young children. Three adults have minor disabilities and there were no problems finding a room that suited all. The home is close enough to the village for walking or driving. The owner is very accommodating, friendly and helpful, getting back to us almost immediately with answers to any questions. We would absolutely consider staying here again should an opportunity arise for us to visit beautiful Whistler. It would be like coming 'home'.

Great cabin/chalet - large, clean convenient

  • 4 of 5

A group of friends (8 adults and 3 children) recently stay at this beautiful place. It's really big and clean and really accommodates large groups well. It's really, really close (walking distance) to the village, restaurants and the grocery store. We would definitely stay here again. Almost every bedroom has it's own bathroom, and there is plenty of beds. Everyone in our group was comfortable. Great neighborhood!

Perfect home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here for the third (and not final) time as a women's getaway and found this home perfect! The kitchen is very well appointed and the large dining area easily accommodates large groups. The owner is very helpful and accessible for answering any queries. The cabin is cozy and very comfortable as well as easy walking distance to village would not hesitate to stay there again!
