British Columbia House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Stay in our wonderful home in Pinecrest Estates Whistler!!! Get away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler Village in our peaceful forested development. Our Private Hot tub waits for you at the end of a day on the mountains. Be close to the new Callahan valley Nordic center which is open for superb cross country skiing and snow shoeing . We have our own private lake/beach and tennis courts and relaxing trails for mountain biking. One of the best hiking areas in Whistler is five minutes away, Black Tusk Mountain.

Our home has a warm ambiance with Pine floors and heated slate flooring in our downstairs bathroom and hallway.

Persian rugs, and antiques add comfort and charm. There are three large bedrooms, each bed has a cozy duvet. The master bedroom is on the main floor. The large loft has table tennis and our den is a great spot to look out over our deck and watch the latest DVD or the birds feeding in one of our several bird feeders. The kitchen is fully-equipped and we have a full-size washer and dryer.

You will have a terrific time!!! Our place is 2200 square feet and a great location for a family or group reunion. We sleep a maximum of eight people due to a local bylaw but will increase to 10 if some of the group are children.

We are close enough to Whistler to enjoy all it has to offer but far enough away to experience that 'getting away from it all feeling.'

About Marg Tennant

Hi , from Neil and Marg the owners of this property. Neil is a structural Engineer and Marg is a Nurse. We decided a few years ago that 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi from the owners of the house, Marg and Neil!! We are a professional couple ( a structural Engineer and a Nurse) with a family who grew up vacationing in our lovely relaxing holiday home. We have a unique setting which is wonderful for families, a lake for swimming, tennis courts and a lovely, peaceful winter atmosphere in our forrested setting.

To explain the one negative comment: this was expressed by someone who we were not able to accomodate due to a need to do some maintenance work at the house/ and our own use.

Wonderful place for families

  • 5 of 5

My family -- most of whom were visiting BC for the first time - had a wonderful time at the Tennant's house. The setting was perfect: far enough from the village but close enough to visit; the small beach was right outside the door. Inside, the house had all the comforts anyone would ever need. It was great vacation and I hope that we have the chance to stay there again.

Perfect weekend away with friends

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us (4 adults, 4 young children) spent the weekend at the Tennants' house in Whistler in February and it was the perfect place to get away to. The house is beautifully rustic (and by rustic, I mean comfortable and cozy with an antique feel to the decor) and the lay-out is perfect for kids. There is a games area upstairs with a ping-pong table and table hockey. The den/TV room downstairs was perfect for the kids to have some time watching movies or colouring while the adults talked and played games. The large hot tub made it a perfectly relaxing weekend. It's close to both Whistler Village and Squamish so easy to pop out if you need anything. For the kids, the highlight was watching the occasional train go by on the tracks directly below the house. Surprisingly the noise wasn't disruptive in the least. We plan on renting the Tennants' house again next year, and we're already looking forward to it.

We recently stayed at the Tennant home at Pinecrest! It was a wonderful place, everyone enjoyed the hot tub,

trails to walk on and birds to feed. Our family enjoyed playing table tennis & table hockey in the games/loft area upstairs! The enclosed wood burning fireplace provided lots of heat for both down & upstairs!

2 of our family went X-Country skiing at Callaghan & enjoyed every minute! It is a very short drive from Pinecrest!

Our 2 grandsons enjoyed seeing the train go by periodically as did we!

Gorgeous, quiet, getaway retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Marg and Niels cabin is above and beyond. The place is decorated famously with hidden historical gems all throughout, the beds are comfy and covered in flannel which fits the mood of the house wonderfully. The deck is a magical place to sit and have your morning coffee and if you catch the train coming by it only adds to the ambiance. The lake outside the cabin is warm and wonderful to swim in. The cabin itself is tucked in the perfect quite grove in between Whistler and Squamish. And the kitchen is stocked and so lovely to wine and dine in.

My friends and I had an incredible time here and will most certainly try to return again.

Great spot to gather family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Felt instant relaxation with the cozy space and fire yet when we were on the go we were close proximity- 25 mins to Whistler and other out door adventure spots. The ping pong with friends and family was a hoot!

Loved the binder with local spot information and where to play.

We had friends join us and we were all plotting the next stay.

Thanks so much for sharing your great spot with felt like home.
