Loved this place at Creekside. Not in Whistler village so if you are looking for lots to do and crowds then this is not the place. Very quiet village with enough amenities to keep us happy.
If you have your own car, then whistler is only a short drive away.
There is a gondola here, right outside the back door, but it's inoperable in summer. Would be perfect in ski season.
We had a two storey apartment with everything you could want, perfect for a weeks stay although we only stayed 3 nts.
We saw a black bear grazing just meters from the gondola base.
Would love to return to this place in a heartbeat.

We just got back yesterday after a 3 day stay. The 2 bedroom condo exceeded our expectations in every way. The living room-dining room-kitchen area was larger than what I have at home. We were able to get an off-season base rate of $208...amazing since the 2 queen room we had just left in Victoria was $190! The kids had their own room and balcony overlooking the pool with their own TV. We had our room with heated bathroom floors and our own TV. The living room had it's own TV and fireplace! Our kids were blown away at the space and full kitchen. It had free internet, free washer-dryer (in the condo!), and free parking. Coming during the summer was great since the crowds weren't there and there was still lots to do. Since it was a condo (inside a typical hotel setting) I did not expect there to be maid service, but there was. The Peak-2-Peak gondola ride in the Village was extraordinary. I can't say enough and will be back. It was no big deal that the front desk was in the property next door. They were really only a phone call away.

We had a conrner unit. The balconly was much more spacious then most. The entire condo was spacious and the floor space had great flow. Plenty of seating. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our fireplace didn't work and they had someone on it within the hour. They changed out a mattress as I had order a condo w/ 2 brms w/ queen or king beds. They even offered to let us switch condos if we were not satisfied. Wonderful pool facilities, hot tubs and steam room. I like the location. It was about 4 miles from the main village , but it was peaceful and quiet as can be. We saw a bear outside our bedroom window and on the back slopes. Free Parking and very secure. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Request a corner condo. They are more spacious and so is the balcony. During the week in mid June w...

Creekside is the ideal place for a family ski vacation and First Tracks Lodge is the ideal place to stay. Our two bedroom unit was well designed and equipped for a ski holiday with enough room for everyone and everything. Creekside is definitely quieter than the village which is a plus in our books. In the evenings, it almost felt we were in our own private mountain village. There are enough good restaurants without having to taxi to the village. BBQ Bob's was our favourite with serving some the best ribs that I have ever eaten.

My husband and I needed somewhere to unwind after a stressful few weeks. We chose this lodge because of it's good ratings on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. It was comfortable, clean, modern and fully equipped. The absence of other people was just what we needed. We had access to restaurants and food outlets if we wanted, and also good supermarkets if we wanted an easy meal for a quiet night in. The "adults only" hot tub was fabulous (congrats on having the courage to do this) as was the heated pool for limbering up tired bones. If you want bustling accommodation with lots going on, then this is not the place for you. If you want up-market quiet space, then book now. It is good value for money.

Picked this place for a one night stopover in June as it was a very good price for four people. Was amazed at how great this place was. It's so good I want to move in there! Immaculate decor. The lounge and bedrooms are so comfortable and its all well placed within Whistler Creek. Perfect.
