Calculate Your Rate
Nightly Rates are quoted in Canadian Dollars but we can also quote a rate in other denominations. A 5% Canadian GST tax is added onto the nightly rate. We don't charge any Hotel tax and parking is free for 1 vehicle in the secure heated garage below our condo. Additional parking is often available in our garage or across the street at the grocery store. Cleaning & laundry costs have risen dramatically in Whistler and although our rates are competitive, we must now charge a small $40 cleaning fee upon your check out. This is deducted from your damage deposit so that we will return a net $110 of the original $150 collected with your reservation.
When you check in, you'll have a clean condo with linens & towels plus starter supplies---toilet paper, paper towel and kitchen soaps & BBQ gas. Since the consumption of each guest varies and this is a self-catering condo, guests may need to purchase additional paper towels, toilet paper, propane and laundry soap. Coffee, sugar, creamer, tea and spices are often available in the unit (we try to stock it several times a year) but due to re-stocking costs, we can not guarantee this for every guest. Our cleaner can drop additional supplies or even perform a touch up clean & linen change midway through your stay for a small fee. We can also put you in touch with companies that will drop baby strollers and even groceries at the condo so that they are there waiting when you arrive.

Most Glacier Reach units are plagued by small living rooms. We've got a great floorplan plus we mounted our wide screen tv over the fireplace so there's room to snuggle by fire, play games or lounge on big couch or leather chair --without having to store the dining table in the hall closet! Views of woods are cozy, if not expansive & patio door offers 1 step access to private hot tub-private enough to skinny dip. Kids can play outside living room patio- which is a great break for parents who want to cook or watch tv within earshot of the kids.
Dining room features striking photography of fall trees , full sized dining table for 6 (1 bench seat means you may be able to squeeze another small child at table for 7). child booster seat for toddler. Outdoor dining as weather permits on our unique stone table with beautiful view of woods & mountains. BBQ offered spring thru fall.
We are known as Glacier Bear Suites at Glaciers Reach Condo complex and are one of the few but growing number of upgraded units here. The complex consists of 3 buildings set in a horseshoe shape among lots of mature trees and woodsy landscaping. Each building is 2 story and our unit is just a few steps from underground parking. We are the east building, offering an entry level, one-level unit that really maximizes space. Many other 2 level condos have limited entry space but ours has room for coats, boots, skis, bikes and we have a boot dryer too. Our bedrooms are located separately and the 2nd bedroom even has its own entry door. Our living room has a large leather couch, original artwork, gas fireplace, flat screen tv, free wifi. Luxurious Linens, Bear themed decor offer unique luxury you'll rarely find at other condos. Our windows offer secluded views so you do not see your neigbhors. Our hot tub is especially private and is under a covered deck, out of reach of the wind, out of site of all neighbors. Free wi-fi. DVD/VCR/Cable in all bedrooms. Truly and easy stroll to Whistler Village shops & restaurants. It takes us 8 min. to walk to Ski Lifts --- or --- you can take the shuttle accross the street from our condo complex that will drop you right off at the steps above the Gondola Ticket Kiosk. The shuttle runs every 10 mins to the lifts and will also drop you at many shops and other viewpoints. Guests will rarely if ever need their car.
We can sometimes offer you the flexibility of a 1 or 2 night stay depending on the season for a small premium.

Location & Map
Whistler Village North, easy 8 min. walk to the Whisgtler gondola, shops, etc. Or, the shuttle bus picks up directly across the street from our condo complex.
Our unit faces the quiet wooded trail, not any streets so you have a private view of the woods and mountain.
Advantages of this location: Whistler Village North is right at the edge of Whistler village. The condos are quieter, units are larger and you are still a 1 min walk along sidewalks to shuttle or a 2 min walk to the grocery, movie rental. An 8 min. walk is all it takes to get to Gondola lifts & all the central Whistler Village action.
Compare this with the "Upper Village" that offers larger units (and prices) but do offer ski-in/out. However, these units are above the village meaning they are far enough away you will want to take a car into town to get supplies, eat out or rent gear. "Whistler Village" downtown center is another option with many units located above the restaurants and shops. You will save a 1-2 mins getting to the lift lines by being right in the village, but the units are smaller and you will definitely hear a lot of noise from the nightlife below. And both the Upper Village and Whistler Village core units rarely have their own private hot tub or pool. We think we offer the best location for size, location to the lifts, price and ammenities.
We are on the corner of Lorimer and Northlands Blvd. From the highway, take the second Whistler entrance (right on Lorimer Drive) then first Left onto Northlands Blvd.

Food and Beverage

|Best place for breakfast/brunch||Montagne-terrific breakfast & crepes!|
|Favorite family restaurant||Wildwood Bistro & we hear Mongolie is good. Skip the Spaghetti place though.|
|Favorite Pub/Bar||The brewery is 1 min. walk away, or the Irish Pub near Pan Pacific|
|Favorite up-scale restaurant|
|Top spot for coffee||Skip Starbucks and try the unique local coffee shops!|
My Money Saving Tips
|Cheapest groceries||Enter border crossing for trucks, after entry, there is a huge grocery store right next to the McDonalds. I think it is PriceGrabbers.|
|My biggest money saving tips||Bring coffee, syrup, olive oil, butter, cheeze, seafood/meat, wine/beer since Whistler stores are expensive & don"t offer best quality or small quantities for ie. weekend use. Produce and dry goods are reasonable in Whistler.|
On a Personal Note
|Our favourite season in Whistler and why.|
We are a family of 6 in Sammamish, Washington State USA but originally from the State of Alaska. We love Whistler summer and winter but were SO disappointed with the rental units offered by the big firms, especially ResortQuest. We wanted to bring our kids and friends to a place of our own own that didn't feel like a bare bones rental. As a result, we found a great spot here in Whistler and we get loads of compliments on our condo. We also have homes on the island of Kihei, Maui and in Girdwood, Alaska that offer distinctive, luxury accomodations for families. Vacation Rentals/Executive rentals on Seattle's eastside in Washington State too.

Date: Aug-02-2014 for a stay in Jul 2014
My family of 4, stayed in this condo during the IronMan 2014. We quickly realized the perfect location when we stepped out to walk to the Village. Very close to grocery store which we appreciated because we like to not "eat out" all the time. We have 2 teenage boys and although the condo was a little on the small side we never felt cramped because we were always on the go. The only things that were a little bothersome was it could be very dark in the condo itself even with the shades open and we would have liked the patio furniture and bbq grill switched with the hot tub. It was a little awkward going thru the kids bedroom to get to the patio. On the upside which is why we would definitely rent this unit again was Lisa was so helpful and reassuring. She kept in touch with us and when we had an issue with the microwave she was immediately on top of it and it was resolved in less than an hour. You cannot beat this location it was perfect for our needs. This was our 1st trip to Whistler and we wish we had known how much there was to do in the summer here because we would have traveled here more often when our kids were younger. Our favorite things we did while there was Peak to Peak and then on up to the 360 degree view, white water rafting, and zip lining. Thank you so much Lisa for allowing us to use your home for our trip. Amazing!!!!View Full Review
