Relax in your very private hot tub, sunk into a 900 square foot wrap-around deck, surrounded by trees, and overlooking a beautiful swimming lake accessed from a dock by the property.
This idyllic retreat is truly the best of both worlds; perfectly positioned for winter and summer vacations. Many windows and two sets of French doors opening onto the large wrap-around deck make this fully-equipped home light and bright in all seasons.
Situated in a natural, rural setting amongst the trees, you can enjoy privacy while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck and enjoying the view of the lake. Cross-country ski, mountain bike, hike or walk - off the beaten track - directly from your door.
The lake is regularly frozen in the winter and ice skating is possible. In the summer the lake is exceptionally warm and is perfect for swimming with access from the dock situated on the property. Walk or take your boat over to the two beaches on the lake. Snow and water toys are available for your use or you can use the private tennis courts.
Located in a private, gated estate 15 minutes south of the Whistler Creek Gondola, with access to some of the best skiing in North America and the many fine restaurants, stores, and entertainment available in Whistler. From this rural, relaxing oasis you can enjoy everything that Whistler has to offer.

Why Richard Hunter chose Pinecrest Estates
We searched throughout southern B.C. for a vacation home and were extremely lucky to find Pinecrest Estates. There are only 75 homes in the estate and the ones on the lake never change hands. It has the perfect year-round appeal. It truly is a slice of Canadiana for a Brit like me. Snow, skate and ski. Mountains, canoeing, swimming and forest. Away from all of the shops and crowds in Whistler, but close enough if you need it. Plus the logs ... so cozy.

Loved the home on the lake!
The log cabin was rustic, comfortable, had a wonderful hot tub to use after skiing. The host was accessible for our every need. Soooo relaxing. A private piece of heaven.
Cozy cabin with some perks and great location
We had a great time staying at the cabin, and communication with Richard was solid! The log home was comforting and large enough for our group to cook, eat, and play games together. The bunk room was larger than expected so that was rewarding.
The hot tub was a HUGE plus during the very cold weekend; it was running fine but we had to put in some effort into restoring the chemical balance of the water in the hot tub, so that we could actually use it upon arrival and throughout the weekend.
This place is a must if you want to avoid the WB crowds and prices, but close enough to get back and forth quickly!
Very Nice Property to Stay at
The owner is great to work with and is extremely helpful/accommodating. The property is very nice and located in a very quiet area - a pond in the back and one across the street. Very wooded area and tranquil. The house was very nice - cabin like. 3 good sized bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom has 3 beds (bunk bed and regular bed). We were a group of 5 and the layout was great. Kitchen is very large and the livingroom is very warm and cozy. Just inside the front door is a mud room for all wet clothing and a large washer / dryer and plenty of hooks to hang up wet clothes. I would highly recommend staying here. It is just 15-20 minutes south of Whistler. If I had one suggestion, it would be to have a few stronger light bulbs in a couple of the lamps to make reading easier. Thank you for a great stay.
Nice big house in a beautiful area
We had a nice stay and Richard his house and used the BBQ every day.
The whistler and squamish area is beautiful and lots to do!
Our family enjoyed a week in Pinecrest Estates. This private lake is lovely; quiet and calm for the kids to enjoy. We loved the paddle boards and pedal boat provided. The neighbours had a kayak the kids wished we had, but other than that this home had it all. The home was well equipped with everthing we could possibly need or want. A great place to enjoy with family and friends.
