Overview

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.

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!

Cozy Cabin Near Whistler

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 weeks at the cabin near Whistler. The weather was chilly but we didn't mind too much because we were biking and hiking mostly.

The cabin has plenty of room for a large family or visitors. The kitchen is well equipped for family meals.

It's not luxury if that's what you're looking for, but it's comfortable and cozy. The dock is also shared which we didn't know, and when a large group rented the place next door we couldn't go down to the dock for a few days. Not ideal but not the end of the world, but good to know if you plan on eating on the dock or doing a lot of swimming or paddling.

You would have to rent bikes as there aren't any at the cabin, but there is a great rental place beside the Tim Horton's in Creekside. It's 20 minutes to Whistler Village. The Day Lots 4 and 5 are free which we didn't discover until week 2, they're only a few more minutes walk to the Village.

We would recommend staying here. Nice to be out of the Village crowds and relax at the end of a long hiking or biking day in the mountains.

Relaxing with everything you need both inside and outside

  • 5 of 5

This clean, relaxing and beautiful cabin on the lakeside had everything my family and I (5 adults and 2 kids) needed to get away during a quick renovation at our place. I can only second all the other positive comments written about the place and Richard, who was super prompt and responsive to all of our questions and inquiries. What I want to emphasize is having all of those great features in such a proximity to Vancouver made it possible for me to commute to work without any problem.

Clean, rustic lakefront cabin with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cabin right on a small lake. We visited with our children and had a great time. My boys said it was their favorite 'cabin' of all our vacation getaways. We loved the peace and quiet of the community while being about 15 minutes drive to Whistler. Plenty of hiking and water fun out the back door- this is a gem on VRBO. The owner is very helpful and cares a lot about the cabin and your stay which makes for a nice trip, also. Thanks for a great vacation!
