Mountain Chalet Experience
We really enjoyed our stay at this property and found everything from the listing was as expected or better.
We stayed with another young family and found the cabin was a great combination of rustic ambiance (log cabin architecture) with modern furnishings inside. Since it wasn't a typical condo or hotel room with plaster walls, we immediately felt transported out of our home environment and into a mountain vacation, where staying in for the night was part of the fun.
The cabin is cozy without being cramped and the bedrooms are a good size. The beds were very comfortable and on-par with any major hotel.
Whistler village was a 5 minute drive away and we found parking to be not a big issue (there are some free parking lots with frequent shuttle service, and some convenient pay lots at $8 a day that allow you to leave/return without repayment).
Parking at the cabin is basically 20 feet from the front door and it was really easy to cart all our stuff inside (a lot easier than at multi-level condos where several trips in the elevator are required).
The hot tub was a generous size and well maintained. The back yard (where the hot tub is situated) is also very private and well treed.
The woodpile was well stocked. Though the cabin is heated with electric heat throughout, keeping the fire going in the wood stove was a welcome pastime during our stay.
The owner was also very helpful and responsive to my questions before and during our stay. We also found there were also lots of little extras (spices, cooking basics, soaps, games, kids toys) left behind by the owner and other vacationers which we found useful.
A couple notes for families with infants/toddlers: Not mentioned in the description is that the laundry room makes an excellent nursery room. It is up on the 2nd floor with the bedrooms, it is heated and has a window with blinds. There was even a spare playpen there for us to use when we arrived!
To mitigate a safety concern about our toddlers getting too close to the wood stove, we brought our "superyard" type baby gate from home and fashioned a gate around the stove (which worked well).
We would definitely recommend this property to others, especially those who want a relaxing getaway with friends and family.
