About Sheri Ranger

I just purchased our first Whistler home in 2013 for my two daughters and I to enjoy. We live in South Surrey and plan on using the home for ski trips in the winter and hiking/golf in the summer. I really love Whistler... The mountains are amazing. The clean air. Friendly and helpful people. The three of us feel very safe there and comfortable walking around at night and the mountain. It's a GREAT place to go with my girlfriends and enjoy the nightlife. My two daughters bring their friends to Whistler and they all have an amazing time! There is literally so much to do! We basically park the car in the secured underground parking for our entire visit and we walk everywhere because it's so close. Being a Realtor in BC I understand the importance of maintaining a home and it's value. We have taken great pride in our new second home and hope that you'll treat it with TLC (tender love and care) This is our first VRBO so we're open to your suggestions to help make our second home comfortable for our future guests. Thank you and enjoy!

Sheri Ranger purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sheri Ranger chose Whistler

The location was the number one reason. We have stayed at many other townhome and condo complexes around Whistler and we knew that being in a quality building in the right location was our biggest priority. Glacier Lodge is located right next the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and at the base of Blackomb Mountain which means we could walk to everything. First class dining, spa, ski lifts, pubs and shopping are literally steps away from Glacier Lodge. No need to take a bus or a shuttle because everything you need is right there. Glacier Lodge also offers on site a spa, pub, bistro, ski rental faulty/storage, art gallery and a ski equipment store.

What makes this condo unique

I had been looking to buy in Whistler for the last four years and after looking at several buildings we decided to purchase at Glacier Lodge because of the great amenities and location. We definitely wanted top floor as I love the feeling of space and grandeur which the high vaulted ceilings and windows gave us. I have two teenage daughters and I felt safe with them on their own in the area walking around and enjoying the activities that Whistler has to offer. If we need anything, everything is right there from world class lounges and restaurants to swimming at Lost Lake and golfing at the Chateau. It's the best of both worlds at your finger tips-winter and summer!

Nice Condo, Quiet Location

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed in this condo for an extended weekend. We chose it because our friends were staying across the street at a timeshare. Check-in was smooth and the staff was very helpful. Parking was easy to find and convenient. The condo itself is exactly what the pictures depict and was comfortable for three people. The bedroom was spacious and the loft was just enough space. The kitchen was really well equipped with the basics, which is really nice because we didn't have to buy things like salt, pepper, tea and oil for a short stay. The bathroom had good counter space (girls have a lot of beauty products) and there were enough towels for everyone. Because the weather was fairly warm, we definitely missed air conditioning. There were plenty of fans around, which helped. We didn't use any of the facilities so can't comment on it.

The location was very quiet and if I had to chose my location, I think I would've preferred to stay in the main village. I want to emphasize that it was a very short walk to the village. I just would've liked to be closer to all the restaurants and stores. We seemed to forget bits and pieces all the time, and it was a slight pain to walk back to pick up things that we forgot. Having said that, the wine and beer store in the building was very convenient. Overall, it was a good stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words on your stay with us at Glacier Lodge. Most people prefer Blackcomb Village as it's quieter than the main village where most of the parties and night life are but still steps away from the gondola to the top of Blackcomb mountain. If you're looking for nightlife than Whistler Village is the place to stay. If you're looking for a quiet location but still close to restaurants such as Milestones, Merlin's, Mallards Lounge at the Fairmont and Sidecut at the Four Seasons than Blackcomb is your spot! We also have a fine dining restaurant, a pub, ski rental store, bike rentals and a clothing store all in the Glacier Lodge building. For those odds and ends that are forgotten at home you can easily purchase beer and wine in the Glacier Lodge building as they have a fantastic selection of fine wine from all over the world. There is also a a small grocery store across the street which is literally a two minute walk at the Club Interwest time share. Again, glad you had a great time and thank you for staying with us at Glacier Lodge. Sheri

Mediocre

  • 2 of 5

This property is listed in USD, which is not indicated on the right of the homepage under request to book, nor on the quote. It is noted only in the rates section if you scroll all the way down. We stayed at the property in the summer. While the property was fine, the televisions weren't receiving signals, and even after they were reset, they continued to not work. The proposed solution was for me to stay and wait for a Shaw employee to come and fix it. Which for a two day get-away, I was not going to make the time to do. So my elderly father missed a distant relative compete in the summer Olympics. Furthermore, there is no covering, blind or curtain, in the living room, so sleeping in the pull out bed, which has a very cheap mattress, is very uncomfortable, and you're guaranteed an early wake-up call. Finally, the place was extremely warm, and so we kept the windows open, and were eaten alive by mosquitos. The place would benefit from some fans. Overall, the stay was mediocre at best.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Sonja. After reading your personal email to me and reading your online review I assume that you continue to be very upset that you didn't notice that the rental quotes are in USD. Unfortunately I can not change the layout of the VRBO website. As for your comments on the two TVs not working. There are clear instructions on how to use the remotes to turn the TVS on. At no time did I offer to have Shaw reset the TVs for you or offer a service technician come to the condo to repair the TVs.The front desk staff and I offered to send someone to the condo to show you how to use the remotes properly but you declined as you stated you eventually figured out how to use them. At no time did I hear back from you stating that both TVs were continuing not to work. The pull out couch offers a Simmons Beautyrest mattress which is one of the top lines of mattresses available on the market for a pull out couch. There are no blinds on the windows in the living room as it's clearly indicated on the photos on the VRBO website. At no time will we install window treatments in the future as it would cover the view of the natural beauty of Whistler from the condo. There are three fans in the unit which is more than ample to cool the condo during the day or night. As for being bitten alive by mosquitoes - anyone who has been to Whistler knows thats not true. I've had the condo in Whistler for three years and we always leave the windows open at night for the fresh air and never had a problem with mosquitoes. Again, I'm sorry that you are upset with not recognizing that the rates are in USD. It does clearly state on the VRBO website that rental rates are in USD. Rather than taking the time to write an negative review that is false, perhaps your time would be better spent sending an email to VRBO regarding currency clarity on their web site. Sheri

Great location, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Rented this accommodation with my son for two nights during downhill biking trip. Great location at the base of Blackcomb and only 5 minute walk to the base of Whistler. Clean suite with comfortable beds. Nice to have a pool and hot tubs after a day of biking to relax. Restaurants and shops at the doorsteps.

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. Nice location, clean, well equipped. The only thing that would have made it better was air conditioning. It wasn't even that hot in whistler but the condo was really warm especially at night while sleeping

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Brad! I spend a considerable amount of time in the home both during the summer and winter and never found I needed A/C. The condo is in the shade therefore the unit never really gets that warm. We have both ceiling fans and portable fans in both bedrooms and found that was sufficient for air circulation and keeping things cool. The air temperature drops considerable during the evenings because Whistler is located in the mountains therefor they're aren't too many days in the year where you sleep with the windows open and it get's warm at night. Hope you can stay with us again in the future! Cheers

The unit was clean and well equipped, no issues.

  • 4 of 5

Good location in the Upper village area of Whistler/Blackcomb.

Check in and out process was painless no problems.

$15.00/day to park in the secured underground parking with elevator access was reasonable.

Unit was located on the street side but there were zero noise issues.

There was no air conditioning in the unit but that was not an issue since weather was unseasonably cool.

All restaurants and points of interest were within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Allan and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We think our location is great as well and the reception desk at Glacier Lodge is very accommodating to our guests. Visitors also have the option of parking on the street however the underground garage is much more secured. Hopefully you can come again and stay with us on your next visit to Whistler! Have a great day :-)

Whistler is a winter wonderland for skiing, boarding, snowshoeing, sledding and so much more during the winter months. Explore some of the best mountain terrain available in North America. Whistler is world renown for heli-skiing and evening activities within the village.

Summer brings just as much fun with hiking the local mountains and kayaking beautiful Green Lake and swim in Lost Lake steps away from Glacier Lodge. Don't forget your Ping clubs and play the many courses at Whistler including Fairmont Chateau Whistler, the Whistler Golf Course or the Nicklaus North Course or ALL three :-) If you love mountain biking this is the place! Bring your bikes or rent them and take the gondola to the top and bike down the many trails. Don't forget your sunscreen and shades as the temperature is amazing during the summer months.
