“Anoher opinion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights in the Fall of 2011 basing our decision on the Trip Advisor reviews that I have found are rarely wrong. So on returning home, it was interesting to compare our experience with others.
So here are my observations. Our room #2 was quite small and cramped. There was an armoire holding an old TV and spare sheets at the base of the bed that allowed one to squeeze between the two to reach the far side of the bed. There wasn’t even enough gap to fully open the doors to the armoire before catching the bed. The bed was indeed a comfortable Queen, but the room couldn’t have taken anything larger. The bathroom was also very small with only room for one person to stand and although the house was built in the mid-1990’s, the bathroom was more reminiscent of the 1970’s. Someone else has mentioned the lighting and we had the same experience; once the shower curtain was pulled, you were in darkness. Why they don’t use a semi-transparent shower curtain I don’t know. Our TV was on the blink with colour fading in and out.
From the evacuation plan on the inside of the door, it was apparent that four of the five bedrooms were the same or very similar size. Only room #3 was a decent size, so if you are staying for more than one of two nights I would try and request that room. Rooms 2, 3 and 4 are on the back of the building.
All other points mentioned by other reviews are pretty accurate. Alan obviously enjoys his visitors and is easy to talk to. His wife is a great cook and I imagine she enjoys this aspect of running the B&B. Together they are good hosts and the common areas set aside for guests in this custom designed house are very comfortable and pleasant.
Be aware that you will be 5.5km from Whistler Village at the top of a fairly steep hill. Not an easy walk unless you are used to it.
We can strongly recommend Le Gros (previously Les Deux Gros) restaurant, only a short drive, that I have commented on separately.

We stayed at Alan and Sulee's Inn at Clifftop Lane for two nights in August and we had a fantastic time. The room was pristine, large, well decorated and very comfortable and we had a balcony with views unto the woods, it was very peaceful and charming, perfect to relax after a long day in the mountains. The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel right at ease from the start. Alan was extremely helpful with local information, Sulee prepared delicious breakfasts and we had delightful conversations with both of them. Of all the places in Whistler, we felt very fortunate to have stayed at the Inn at Clifftop Lane and we warmly recommend that you do the same, you will not be disappointed.

The setting and home are perfect. Away from the tourist area yet close to everything. Beautiful place to relax. But the best part is the people. Alan and Sulee are most gracious hosts. We knew nothing about Whistler but they helped us every step of the way to a most memorable vacation. Food is a big thing to us and we simply can't say enough about the breakfasts

Beautiful house. Elegant and spacious rooms with jacuzzi.The owners: a wonderful cook and a wine aficionado. They even treated us to a wine tasting with their friends. We strongly recommend the place. PS: Ask Alan for to the best place to spot black bears.

We love staying at B&Bs. Spent 3 nights here during July 2011. Very comfortable with great hosts. Quiet, clean and restful. Beds were excellent. Breakfast was one of the best we've ever had at a B&B anywhere. There is a nice room where you can read in the evening or if the weather is rainy. There are TVs in each room with very good reception. Met some very friendly, nice and interesting people while eating breakfast. Scenery is great with lots of outdoor activities available. Excellent choice of restaurants in town, just down the road. They have a well-behaved dog. Be warned that there is only one gas station in Whistler, so be sure to fill up before leaving town.

Room Tip: They have one room with twin beds.
