|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Welcome to your Whistler 'home away from home'! Our 1 bedroom 1 bath condo is one of the few in the building with high vaulted ceilings, making it seem much larger than other 1 bedroom units. We love to cook so you will find top of the line cookware and new appliances in the kitchen. The gas river rock fireplace adds a cozy touch to the living room area which is fully equipped with a flat screen TV, full cable & digital music channels, internet, Blu-ray DVD, stereo and iPod docking station. Just off the living room is a covered private balcony with beautiful views of Creekside Village and Sproat Mountain. The bedroom has a new (read comfy!) queen size bed, with additional sleeping space available in the living room with a double pull out couch and a window seat that could be used as a single bed if needed.
Lake Placid Lodge boasts one of the best pool areas in Whistler. End the day with a dip in the year round heated outdoor pool or soothe your tired muscles in the hot tub or sauna. In the summer, you have the option to eat poolside and dine 'al fresco' by taking advantage of the two commercial grade BBQ's located in this common area.
Parking in Whistler can be expensive but not at this location! Free heated underground secure parking for one vehicle is available with elevator access to the lobby and guest floors. In addition, secure complimentary ski/bike storage is available to our guests.
Located across the street within walking distance is Creekside Village, where you will find everything you need for your stay in Whistler including a grocery store, liquor store, full service bank, post office, Whistler Blackcomb Guest Services, Ski Rentals & Tickets and the popular Creekside location of Whistler Ski Camp for kids & adults. A variety of award winning restaurants are within easy walking distance and make for a great evening out without having to take the car.
Lakes and the extensive Valley Trail system (great for jogging & biking) are within minutes of the front door and you are literally steps from the Creekside Gondola which is the gateway to some of the best skiing and biking in the world.
** Please note: due to an extensive renovation project, the pool area will be closed for Summer 2017 **
Based in North Vancouver, our family has enjoyed the playground that Whistler has to offer for years. The upgraded highway for the 2010 Winter Games has made this a quick weekend (and often mid-week!) escape year round. We love being part of the Whistler community and are proud to call it our 'home away from home'.
Sonia Telford purchased this condo in 2011
Before we purchased this property, we always stayed in the traditional Village area of Whistler. Tired of being kept awake at night by the rowdy party crowds, we opted for the less hectic Creekside location for our home. Local award winning restaurants and pubs give us great options for a night out if we wish, without the late night noise and crowds when we feel like a quiet night in. Lake Placid Lodge underwent a major exterior upgrade in 2009 and the repainting of the interior in 2012 has given the property a fresh updated feeling.
This is a great family property and noise by-laws are strictly enforced. If you are looking for a place to party, this is not the location for you! If you are looking for a property that feels like a home, has a great location and one of the best pools in Whistler, you have found it.
I decided to spoil myself and spend a whole season in Whistler. It was going to be a trip of a lifetime and I wasn't going to be taking a car so where I was going to stay was a huge priority? Could not have found a better place!!! It met all of my requirements, comfortable with a well stocked kitchen, close to the lift, bus, grocery/liquor store, guest services, restaurants, pub. All are literally steps away! Met some great people in the hot tub and the rest of the common areas were always clean. Throw in a very attentive/responsible landlord and it was a dream experience.
Your condo is wonderful! We love how you have furnished your place and the wall decor is perfect for Whistler. It was nice to arrive and have everything available. In the past I had to bring so many things that were not provided. It was so convenient to walk out the door and be at the gondola in seconds. Before we had to load the car and drive to the parking garage every day. And the best part was that I didn’t have to clean.
We spent 4 days over the summer in this condo, travelling with friends who rented a similar unit that overlooked the pool. This unit was not only superior in its furnishings (we loved the “extras” like the separate dishes provided for dining by the pool, a coffee grinder, and spices in the cupboard. The other unit had none of these), it was significantly quieter and cooler than the other suite that had full sun all day. Owners were easy to deal with and provided detailed information in advance so that we knew what to expect. The damage deposit was promptly refunded and the pool is fantastic. Creekside Village seemed more vibrant than the last time we stayed. We would definitely book this unit again.
This is the second time that we have stayed at this property and we love it! First stay was during ski season and the location and facilities are fantastic. Our last stay was for the Memorial Day weekend and the property had a completely different feel with the tables & chairs set out by the pool. The suite itself is nicely furnished, really clean and you can tell it is a "home" that the owners use as opposed to a full time rental property. Kitchen equipment is well stocked and it is nice to stay somewhere where the dishes & cutlery match. We have rented other suites in this building and the vaulted ceilings in this unit really make a difference to the feel of the suite. Looking forward to our next stay!
Located at the base of Whistler Mountain in less hectic Creekside, this one bedroom condo is a perfect summer or winter retreat. In winter, take advantage of being steps away from the Creekside Gondola for world class skiing on Whistler Mountain, site of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Want to try a different mountain? The state of the art Peak-to-Peak Gondola connection provides easy access to Blackcomb Mountain without driving so you can leave your car in the secure heated underground parking.
In summer, Whistler offers a huge range of outdoor activities. From mountain biking to hiking to ATV tours, there is something for everyone to entice you into the great outdoors and experience for yourself why this area is so special.
Lakes and the extensive Valley Trail system (great for jogging & biking) are within minutes of the front door.
