My wife and I just returned from a week long stay at the Horstman House. We found it to be exactly what we expected. It was great! We stayed in a one bedroom condo that was decorated well and was very comfortable. The room had a nice fireplace which added great atmosphere.
The kitchen was small but served it's purpose well. It had almost everything you needed as far as pots and pans. It also had dishwasher soap, salt and pepper, coffee filters and more. We cooked about half our meals and ate out the other half. (The food in Whistler was very average.)
We were first time skiers, but this place seemed set up well. It was near the mountains, but not walking distance. However, it was on the free bus line. A bus stop is right outside the front of the resort. It only took about 5-10 minutes to get to the slopes. You can ski in but we never did. We saw a few people ski in. We aren't good yet so we were always too tired. We just got on the bus and rode home.
As I mentioned above, we aren't very good skiers....Yet! So, we were very tired at the end of the day. This place has a great hot tub outside to help recover from a hard day of skiing. It is a big hot tub for the whole resort. We found that it was empty most of the time. Every now and then a few people would come by.
Overall, the place is very quiet. We hardly heard a noise the entire time. This place is great for the money. Extremely cozy!!
Whistler was also a great place to learn to ski! Excellent instructors and beginner runs.
