Looking for a place where your group can all fit together in comfort? With a living room and eating spaces able to accommodate you all... together... Pinetree Chalet provides the perfect 'home base' for your retreat or family getaway in Whistler. Whether your group consists of up to 15 singles, 4 couples or an extended family, you've come to the right place. Kick back, relax & make yourself at home.

Pinetree Chalet has additional bedding to accommodate groups of 22 in retreat style.


Whistler's Emerald Estates peaceful subdivision is central to Whistler's abundance of year-round activities. We're four miles from the action of Whistler Village. Hike, ski, golf, swim, boat, skate, horse ride, river raft, zipline... your choices are practically endless! Green Lake is a short walk from the chalet that offers boating and water sports in the warmer seasons, and skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing when frozen.


From your well equipped kitchen with bar-style island, to the dining area overlooking the sunken living room the open-style flow is perfect for entertaining - with just enough separation. The living room layout is ideal for meetings or games with comfy leather couches and additional bench seating - perfect for relaxing after a day in the great outdoors or hosting meetings.

Stone, massive beams, granite, wrought iron, wood, leather and lodge quilts will remind you you've left the city behind.


• Dining table seats 10 (with bench seating for flexibility); adjacent kitchen island has 5 stools. Seats a total of 15 in comfort at mealtimes.

• Living room has 2x 3-seat couches, loveseat, 2 armchairs - 10 can comfortably gather on leather seating. Additional bench seating for 8 more in the living room. Living room can accommodate 18 for a great meeting space.

• Total of 15 guests in 11 separate beds - no bunks. We provide premium bedding for all beds and mats.

• Additional 7 half-king high density mats available in the large rooms for maximum of 22 guests. Although mats are comfortable for adults the configuration may not be ideal for mature adults.


At bedtime you'll find 2 huge master suites made up to suit your group... from a couples retreat to a large family suite capable of sleeping up to 9 in each room.

Bedrooms 3 & 4 are small queen bedrooms that are perfect for 1 or 2 guests each.

Each bed has a featherbed or memory foam topper and premium bedding for a deep, restful sleep.

Bathrooms: each master suite has a full ensuite bathroom. A 3-room bathroom on the main floor includes a sauna and steam shower.


Private off-street parking is available for 3-5 vehicles (depending on snowfall), foyer with hanging storage for 17 pairs of skis plus heated boot storage. The large, gently sloping lot has gardens planted in the summer and encircled by trees for privacy.

Also equipped with laundry, wifi, bbq, soaps, sauna & steam room. For more details on amenities see our website.

**IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RATES: We’ve done our best to note our rates accurately within VRBO system, but since our prices vary based on the length of stay the final rate may vary. A detailed quote will be provided. All rentals are for a 28-day period, regardless of the length of occupancy. Rates are based on a minimum stay depending on the season.

About Virginia

Pinetree Chalet grew its roots in 1989. We purchased the chalet as an activity-filled home base for our family to vacation and entertain at. Over the years we've rented it periodically to select guests, church groups, extended family retreats and rentals.

Our family has now grown and grown up. With 5 "kids" starting lives of their own we are delighted to share in the care and use of Pinetree Chalet along with you, our guests.

We love to welcome guests looking to explore the beauty of Whistler and take part in the many activities around the area. We think the peaceful area of Emerald Estates is the perfect home-base to take it all in.

Our home that we call Pinetree Chalet... from the remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, furniture and finishing touches... have been updated to reflect how we want Pinetree Chalet to be for years to come. And we're constantly planning new projects to make it the best possible getaway.

We accept a minimal number of rentals each year, so we focus on and look forward to each group of Pinetree Chalet guests. We truly value and work with our guests to create your best possible experience, including concierge and travel planning services, on request.

We want to whole-heartedly welcome you to our home - we hope you feel right at home, too! It is our hope and prayer that this home is a blessing to every one that enters it, and is part of building stronger bonds between family and friends.

Thank you for choosing to stay at Pinetree Chalet. We hope you enjoy it and return again.

Virginia purchased this chalet in 1989

Why Virginia chose Whistler

We love Emerald Estates! It is a beautiful 7-minute drive from the action of Whistler Village and yet the neighborhood is so peaceful - it's the best of both worlds. As we drive along and see scenic Green Lake on the right we just give a big sigh and life's problems just seem to melt away.

What makes this chalet unique

The layout of the rooms and furniture allow for so much flexibility:

-The two large master suites can EACH easily accommodate a family - even large families. A 3rd family of up to 4 can use the 2 queen-sized bedrooms.

-It's great for 4 couples - large beds and private room for each couple - huge suites for the lucky ones in the master bedrooms with reading corner and seating area.

-We've hosted youth retreats with boys & girls large rooms... convert the daybeds to twin beds & pull out the mats to maximize accommodation while the leaders have their own private rooms for a total of 22 people (this configuration not necessarily recommended for mature adults).

-An adult retreat with 11 separate beds - mats available for additional sleeping, if needed. With 2 people in each large bed (king or queens) the house will sleep 15 guests in beds.

-The dining area has benches for flexible seating, plus additional seating at the kitchen island.

-Living room has lots of leather seating. Benches allow for additional space when needed.

-The house is within walking distance to beautiful Green Lake (also the only lake in Whistler that allows motor watercraft). There is a private park with play area nearby, and a beautiful 20-minute 'loop walk' with interesting houses. Other little-known walks in the area.

Friends Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 adults and 7 children (all ages 4 and under) staying here. The place was great for all of us. The website is excellent in providing all the information. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner, Virgiinia, is excellent and very helpful. She responds to your emails really quick and tries to do everything she can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The parking area can fit up to 4 cars which was perfect for us. This place is close to Whistler (about 10 minutes drive). The 2 master bedrooms are huge and spacious. The living room can well accommdate 12 people comfortably. It was a nice cozy living room for friends to gather around and talk. I would definitely come back here again!!!
