“Very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The lodge is fantastic - probably one of the best ones we stayed in. Our room was a one bedroom suite and it was huge! Nice high ceiling add even more space to it and a fireplace makes it nice and comfortable. We were also able to hire a Nintendo Wii for our little one to play when the weather wasn't so good for skiing which was a great bonus :) The food was a bit pricey but good. And I have to mention outdoor hot tubs that were exactly what we needed after a day of skiing.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong here.

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.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly to see what price they offer.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review Norm! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the contemporary mountain comfort of our "lodge". I have passed your comments regarding scents along to the cleaning staff and they will look into the possible use of products with a lighter scent. We hope to welcome you back for a third time soon!

The Nita Lake Lodge is amazing. The lodge and decor are beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable, the staff are very welcoming and friendly, the views over the lake are beautiful and the food at Aura is fabulous. You can't go wrong if you choose to stay here.

We stayed for one night as a last minute get away from Vancouver. The hotel is stunning and right on the lake. Our room was outstanding complete with fireplace, soaker tub for two, a french press coffee maker, kitchenette and sitting area complete with couch. The king size bed was amazing and the decor was beautiful.
We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was excellent and so reasonably priced, especially for a hotel. Would love to go back in the summer and stare out at the lake.

Room Tip: Request a lake view.

From the moment you walk in the door, you feel the warm mountain atmosphere the lodge is constructed of large timbers and a has a lovely fireplace. The bedrooms are spacious, bathrooms huge, the 2 bedroom offers lots of privacy with one upstairs and one down. The bar/lounge has a wonderful view of the lake and the food was delicious. EAsy walking paths right off the lounge, took us on an easy walking path to Whistler. A fabulous Whistler get away without the hassle of Whistler village. Didn't have time to use the spa, no comment, but heard the hot tub was fantastic.

We stayed at the wonderful Nita Lake Lodge in March.
The hotel is total luxury. The room was amazing. The bedoom was warm and cozy and the 'real effect' fire made it feel so gorgeous.
The large double four poster bed in our room was extremely comfortable and made the mornings very difficult to get out of!
The bathroom was a sheer delight and the huge bathtub was great to soak in after a day on the slopes. The seperate walk in large rain shower was great. I must also mention the heated bathroom floor. Cozy toes!
There is a small fridge and coffee making facilities in your room tucked away out of sight. Complimentary coffee (cafitierre style) is provided too.
Breakfast.. the choice was excellent. I could not fault it and was a great start to the day. Even down to the choice of milk, any % of fat you wanted!!
The Staff.. hold on Im not sure they can be called that, every member of staff we spoke to was very helpful and very very friendly. The shuttle limo into Whistler vilage or up to Creekside was a real experience. The guys who run this are very clued up with the local restaurants and gave us great recommendations on places to eat. I think Glen knew each restaurant menu off by heart.
You must visit the Rim Rock cafe while in Whistler it was a great dining experience.
The shuttle is running everyday and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes to hitch a ride. When you are out in the evening you can make a call to the hotel and they will come and 'scoop' you up. (Glen will know that line!)
We took advantage of leaving our skis in the lockers in Creekside village. The hotel will provide you with a padlock so you can just leave them up in the village overnight. This saves you carting your skis and boots back to the hotel. We preferred to do this and miss the queues on a morning at the gonolas in Whistler village. Also the Creekside Gondola is much quieter and a great excuse to finish the day in Dustys. (You must have a Ceasars Cocktail in here)
The Spa...I can truely say that my 1 hour massage was the best I have ever had. I literally came out of there feeling I had a new body. If you have time you must visit the spa for treatments and compared to the UK are reasonably priced..

I would definately recommend this hotel, do not be put off in any way that its out of Whistler village. The location is stunning next to the lake and there is a lovely trail if you have a day to take a walk. The Shuttle service th ehotel provides allows you to head into Whistler Village anytime you want without any extra costs.
Just a perfect place, I would love to think that one day we can go back.

We rented a 2 bedroom suite for 2 gals joining in on a friend's birthday party and had so much fun! From unique cocktail creations in the bar, to the amazing private dining room (which served as dance floor later in the evening) - the kitchen was able to serve 24 plated dinners - set menu with a couple of choices, so yummy! to the cozy beds, huge bathrooms and then again an amazing spread for breakfast, again in a private dining area. It's the perfect place to host a party with no need to go anywhere else!

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom we had was located on 2 floors with 2 master suites each with large ensuite bathrooms...
