About Marg Tennant
Hi , from Neil and Marg the owners of this property. Neil is a structural Engineer and Marg is a Nurse. A few years ago we decided we wanted to have recreational property for our growing family, so we carefully looked at various properties in the Whistler area. We decided on Pinecrest for many reasons...the unique setting that provides a peaceful rural atmosphere plus having our own lake, tennis courts, relaxing walking trails and is a short drive to the growing Whistler Resort. We find our area especially wonderful for families with no worries about traffic, kids can bike around our roads safely and it is just a short stroll down to the beach area of our Lake.
Marg Tennant purchased this House in 1985

Nothing shy of perfect
Our family (dad, mom, and three boys ages 9, 7, and 6) spent the month of July at the Tennant’s beautiful cabin. Everything was perfect - clean, comfortable, and enjoyable.
We traveled to the Squamish/Whistler area to climb and hike. If you have a chance, hike the Joffre Lakes - they are amazing. It was an incredible feeling knowing that at the end of each day, we had a great place to retire to in the evening.
The hot tub is a great touch and a service team maintains it once a week. It was always crystal clear, clean, and the chemicals were spot on. Our family enjoyed the ping pong table every day. In fact, I think we decided to purchase one when we return home! Past reviews noted that the TV situation was less than ideal. Since that posting, the owners have added a large TV with an Apple TV. We definitely binged some shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video during our stay.
The beds were all comfortable and the bedrooms are nice and dark. We loved the train visits. They were fun for the boys and never woke us up at night. We also enjoyed several trips to the lake, which is directly across the driveway (1 minute walk). The water was clean, refreshing, and not too cold to enjoy some swimming.
We thoroughly enjoyed the well stocked kitchen and looked forward to eating together at the large dining table each night. It sounds funny, but the heated floors in the hallway and bathroom are amazing!
We had a blast and this was a trip of a lifetime. When we return to Squamish and Whistler, we will return to the Tennant’s cabin. There’s no need to look at other properties. The communication was stellar, check in and out was so simple, and we left wanting nothing more.
It was perfect.
Confortable cabin in a quiet community. Perfect for peoples who wants he best value for their dollar
When we arrived, the cabin was clean but temperature was set at 10 C. So we had to set the thermostat at 22 and to light a fire in the fireplace! Wow! One hour later and for the rest of our one month stay we feeled comfortable and relaxed!
Peaceful location. Spa well maintained by pros.
The only negative point: no cable TV but unlimited Wi-Fi. As we don't like to look at TV on a cell Phone or a Tablet and as the only old TV in the cabin is not set for Wi-Fi... we had no TV for one month! We were not prepared for that cure but we survived! It is probably easy and not complicated or expensive for the owner to improve that point. We greatly recommand that place for people who want to relax in a rustic setting... far away from the crowd and all associated animations, pubs, etc.
Well located, only 25 minutes ride to reach the Whistler parking lot!!!
Ho! Beds are comfortable!

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry the house was cool for your arrival. Our cleaner was unable to clean the day of your arrival , this was done several days prior. We try to conserve energy when the house is unoccupied, since our main source of heat is electric.
Regarding the cable issue, we wish you had discussed this with us .We do have an HDMI cable attached to our tv , for easy connection to a lap top. We did have several conversations during your stay, I’m disappointed that we were unable to assist you. We do provide various movies for renters’ enjoyment.
We look forward to accommodating you again in the future, qas you mentioned in our guest book.
Very warm and friendly cabin in an idyllic location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cabin. The cabin is full of interesting antique items and collectibles. I almost wish there was a guide book to explain everything! The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable and met our needs perfectly. The kitchen had quite new appliances and was well stocked with dishes, glasses, cups, pots, pans, etc. We loved sitting in the hot-tub and watching the snow quietly fall, and then getting treated to the sight of a train passing just feet away, but about forty feet below, in the railway cut -- truly a unique perspective. When we weren't off skiing we went for a couple of walks in and around the small lakes of Pinecrest.
Gorgeous setting, inviting home
This was exactly what we wanted for a recent 50th anniversary weekend away. Thank you, Marg!
Cozy home on gorgeous lake!
We loved our time at this property. Surrounded by trees and short walk to the lake. The house is lovely and the hot tub is super relaxing. I am planning our next stay already. Marg and Neil are lovely hosts and there were zero hassles the whole trip. The cabin lacks nothing and the arrival was a breeze. Best VRBO experience to date.
Wonderful week in Whistler!!!
Great place to bring your family! The home was very clean and the beds were confortable. We had seven people with us and the home was very spacious and plenty of bedrooms for sleeping comfortably. I enjoyed biking throughout the community as well as a great location for kiaking and canoeing.
