This is my second time at Nita Lake Lodge: three nights during the deeply quiet time at Whistler between summer and ski seasons. Name notwithstanding, this isn't a "lodge" in the sense of a place with a rustic touch. Rooms are spacious and very well furnished, with all the accessories you would expect in a grand hotel. The main public rooms are likewise well done. And yet the place is quite small--certainly not a monster highrise--and is located away from things right on a lake, just like a traditional "lodge".
For me this is a welcome mix. The Nita Lake Lodge is located just about midway in the Whistler valley network of maintained trails and cross country ski trails. The scenery in both directions along the valley from the lodge is attractive and less frequented than around Whistler village. By the way, a free shuttle gets you to and from the Village without having to take your car out of the secured parking garage.
Rooms typically offer a lot of space, a nice balcony, and a kitchenette tastefully hidden away when not in use. There's a full service posh restaurant and an adjacent coffee shop. Hot tubs and a small workout room and available, but there's no pool, sauna or steam room.
Staff are not only friendly, but also know their stuff.
The only downside I experienced is that the Lodge evidently has not as yet considered floral and cleaning scents an issue yet, as have a growing number of other institutions. The corridors leading to rooms smell strongly of cleaning materials, bed linens are clearly washed in scented detergents, etc. Perhaps this would be of little account during the summer when windows are thrown open, but in today's colder weather the floral and other smells were strong, This was a little hard on the nose, and totally unnecessary.
