A Wonderful Lodge with Beautiful Staff
I loved every minute of our stay here. The location in the village is perfect. The onsite restaurants are lovely. The rooms were beautiful. Ours was a King Suite - with full kitchen, fridge, coffee maker etc. Wish our stay had been longer.
I hope to return to Whistler in the not too distant future and I will not bother looking at any other accommodation options as this place ticked all the boxes.
