Pinecrest Estates House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Relax in your very private hot tub, sunk into a 900 square foot wrap-around deck, surrounded by trees, and overlooking a beautiful swimming lake accessed from a dock by the property.

This idyllic retreat is truly the best of both worlds; perfectly positioned for winter and summer vacations. Many windows and two sets of French doors opening onto the large wrap-around deck make this fully-equipped home light and bright in all seasons.

Situated in a natural, rural setting amongst the trees, you can enjoy privacy while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck and enjoying the view of the lake. Cross-country ski, mountain bike, hike or walk - off the beaten track - directly from your door.

The lake is regularly frozen in the winter and ice skating is possible. In the summer the lake is exceptionally warm and is perfect for swimming with access from the dock situated on the property. Walk or take your boat over to the two beaches on the lake. Snow and water toys are available for your use or you can use the private tennis courts.

Located in a private, gated estate 15 minutes south of the Whistler Creek Gondola, with access to some of the best skiing in North America and the many fine restaurants, stores, and entertainment available in Whistler. From this rural, relaxing oasis you can enjoy everything that Whistler has to offer.

About Richard Hunter

Chartered accountant, originally from the UK,living in Vancouver since 1980. Currently CFO of a B.C. crown corporation. My wife Therese is a hairstylist and we have 3 grown boys, who do not seem to want to leave home.

Richard Hunter purchased this house in 1992

Why Richard Hunter chose British Columbia

We searched throughout southern B.C. for a vacation home and were extremely lucky to find Pinecrest Estates. There are only 75 homes in the estate and the ones on the lake never change hands. It has the perfect year-round appeal. It truly is a slice of Canadiana for a Brit like me. Snow, skate and ski. Mountains, canoeing, swimming and forest. Away from all of the shops and crowds in Whistler, but close enough if you need it. Plus the logs ... so cozy.

Perfect home and location for hiking

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable 4 bedroom home on a quiet little lake. Great clean hot tub on deck overlooking lake, nice little dock for hanging out in AM with coffee or evening with wine. Very clean. Well stocked kitchen-we cooked most of our meals at the house. Nice large table big enough for all 7 of us. Spent a week here with 6 other women on hiking adventure, we were able to find several awesome trails from Sqaumish to Pemberton, even one we accessed about 3 blocks from this house. Richard was very responsive to any questions or needs we had. My friends and I have been renting through VRBO for many years and we all rated this home as one of the best we have ever rented. Thanks, Richard.

Perfect Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautifully situated on a quiet, small lake with gorgeous views of the mountains. The kitchen is very well equipped, the fireplace is amazing and we spent lovely evenings curled up in blankets on the dock sipping wine and enjoying our surroundings. We were only 15 minutes from Whistler Village which was perfect for enjoying the restaurants, shopping and mountains but escaping the crowds of tourists in the evenings. This was the last of three stops for us during our trip to BC, and it was definitely everyone's favorite. We cannot wait to return in the winter for skiing.

Perfect vacation rental and location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed 5 days at the cabin and enjoyed every minute of it. We found the cabin to be cozy, well supplied and perfect in every way for our vacation. We have traveled a lot as a family and my 21 year old daughter was giddy when she said, "thanks mom and dad! This is possibly my favorite place we've ever visited as a family! We were fortunate in that the neighboring cabin was not used during our stay, so we didn't have to share the dock. As it was, we used the dock morning, day and night. The star gazing is amazing from the dock, as well as we enjoyed them from the hot tub on the deck. It was great to hike in the day and soak at night! As for one recommendation / advice: Don't miss the Peak2Peak experience, Joffre Lakes for a spectacular hike, and I would advise you to buy your groceries in Squamish if you're driving north to Whistler to save money for the same quality food. We definitely hope to book again with Richard in the future.

Extremely Cool cottage

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the lakehouse. It was 1st time to Whistler for us and our best friends from WA state. The only surprise was that we did not get much lake time the first few days of our trip, there was so much to do in Whistler that we were on the go constantly. Amazing vacation. Don't miss Peak2Peak, Cheakamus Lake hike, and we really enjoyed the Bobsleigh track tour.

The house had lots of amenities we were not expecting, very well stocked. We stayed around the lake the last two days, must say the paddle boards are harder than I expected. Overall a 5 star stay. We would recommend to all our friends and relatives.

What a beautiful lake!!

  • 4 of 5

We are so happy that we found Richard's cabin! The lake is beautiful, and the water was very warm for swimming! We spent hours on the dock swimming and playing with the paddle boards and the lake toys. We also loved the large hot tub on the deck, the nearby tennis courts in the community, and the wonderful walks around the lake. We also appreciated how dog friendly the cabin was for our yellow lab. Richard was very easy to communicate with, and was quick to answer all of my questions. He even called during our visit to check on us. We definitely will be back again!

Gem in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing cabin on a beautiful lake. This cabin beats any other rental anywhere. It felt like home from the minute we arrived. Richard takes very good care of his rental and his renters, following up with a phone call to make sure we were happy. The view of the lake from the hot tub was wonderful. The cabin was spotless and cozy. We spent every day on the dock, paddle boarding and canoeing. There were great hikes very nearby. Our holiday in this beautiful cabin just couldn't have been any better!! Can't wait to return next year! Thanks for sharing your cozy cabin with us Richard!
