The Whistler area is great for outdoor adventure and activities with mild climate, beautiful lakes and trails, and gorgeous scenery.
This Lodge does the trick for meeting your housing needs, but modest by all means. The only bedroom is very cramped - about 3 feet of room around entire perimeter of queen bed. The loft upstairs is semi-private and with slightly more room. The pull out couch in the living room slanted downwards and took up the majority of the living room when opened up to a bed.
There were 2 bathrooms, and the one downstairs for the master bedroom was tiny. You could not sit on the toilet and close the door at the same time without moving your legs....the door actually brushes up against the toilet when closing. A small sink and shower are also inside.
There is no washer/dryer in the unit and you have to go down to the garage floor to use the community washer/dryer, just make sure you have enough change to put in the machines.
The entire floor except for kitchen and bathrooms is carpet, but there is no vacuum available. There is no cleaning service (which is not unusual for 1-week stays), but could be purchased for $50. After 1 week with 3 kids under 7, and no vacuum, carpets were definitely in need of cleaning.
The swimming pool was nice, but nothing special (typical rectangle shape - no diving boards or slides). The water was heated up I believe to close to 80 def F, and the jacuzzi was larger than your typical jacuzzi. The kids enjoyed the pool, although we swam at nearby lakes several times as well.
The wifi was spotty working decent for the most part on a laptop, but very in/out on iPads and phones. Cable TV worked great - and only 1 TV (in living room). A grocery store and Starbucks all a 2- minute walk away.
Overall we had a great time as we love the outdoors and this was a beautiful place. We were happy to find a week for exchange through RCI as this place is very busy, but nowhere near the quality of our home resort! Keep all this in mind when booking here.
