Whistler Chalet Rental Sleeps 22 Guests
Whistler has a wide variety of vacation rentals for groups traveling together. From cheap condos in the same building, to luxury chalets with 5 bedrooms and bathroom for each.
One Whistler accommodation option that is harder to describe it the Lorimer Ridge Lodge. This rental chalet sleeps up to 22 guests, so your whole group can get a Whistler rental package and stay in the same house during your Whistler vacation.
I asked Fernando, the Manager at Lorimer Ridge Lodge, to describe his chalet from the Whistler guests’ point of view. Here’s what he had to say…
We arrived at this beautiful home on the Lorimer Ridge hill – the large Lorimer Ridge Lodge sign was well lit and very easily visible from the street at the foot of the private driveway. Our group had five cars but the parking lot could have easily accommodated twice as many vehicles.
The property caretaker was there to greet us, and give us a tour of this huge (4824 square foot) house. We had been given a layout map of each floor prior to arrival that included bedroom locations, and bedding type in each room, so this made it very easy for me to assign the specific rooming list to my group prior to arrival.
The decks were great for hanging out on and with two bbq’s we were able to grill up some steaks for everyone in a very short time span. The bbq’s were also hooked up the house propane system which meant we did not have to change or worry about any gas tanks.
My wife commented that the gourmet kitchen was fully stocked with everything that she needed to create a fantastic meal.
The dining areas had very comfortable padded wooden chairs with smooth wooden tables. The dining areas also doubles as excellent meeting places for the various factions of my family (or my company).
The main living room was a great gathering place for our group – three very comfortable large couches all provided a great view of the 60 inch Sony Aquos smart TV – we were able to take pictures of our adventures during the day and then show them on the TV later in the day.
Some great amenities such as a sauna, hot tub and billiards room provided everyone in my group with something to do while at home – did I mention that there were also four flat screen TV’s – each with their own HD PVR giving the various age groups within our group an excellent choice of different shows to watch during the wind down part of our day.
There was even a small office for me to do a bit of work and not be in anyone else’s way whilst doing so.
The bathrooms were well stocked 22 full sets of towels out (to cover all of the guests in their bathrooms) with another 22 sets in the bathroom cabinets. At bed time the bedding was very clean and comfortable. The mattresses were perfect for offering everyone a perfect night’s sleep.
Regarding location we were a hop, skip and a jump from the main Whistler Village – close enough to walk anywhere but yet far enough away to not hear or feel the “hustle and bustle” of the main village. Location specifics: Located 2 blocks from the northwest corner (Lorimer Rd. & Hwy. 99) of the main Whistler village.
We were less than one mile (1.6 km) from any point in the main Whistler village including the lifts for both mountains.
During inclement weather periods, walking while wearing ski boots and carrying ski/snow boarding equipment is not advisable – one might want to catch a shuttle that stops one block away (every 15 minutes). Resort Cabs is another option – for less than $1.50 per person (cabs hold six people) you can be taken right to any location with door to door service – the drive is less than two minutes.
Well said Fernando! By the way, Fernando and his staff have been looking after Whistler groups for years. These managers know what they are doing and have lots of Whistler knowledge to share. Lorimer Ridge Lodge has been advertised on ResortAc.com for many of those years.
