Although the weather in Whistler wasn't what we expected (more springlike than winter wonderland) the Totem Chalet property made up for it in every way. It's proximity to the hike/bike trail allowed us to enjoy long walks through beautiful pine forests, the view of Whistler & Blackcomb mountains was just spectacular and could be enjoyed throughout the house as each floor enjoyed floor to ceiling windows, and it's location made getting into the village a breeze. The house is wonderfully designed to have a very open feel, yet each area feels private. Our family was able to enjoy being together without being on top of one another. House is well appointed and has many interesting details as well, of course the most impressive being the Totem pole going up through the staircase! Would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a unique place to hang their hat while in Whistler.
