Our home is in Deer Lodge of the Town Plaza Suites; a top location in the heart of Whistler Village and on the beautiful Village Stroll. We're fortunate in that we face west to Main St.; you get the great mountain views without the nightly racket from the stroll. This puts you within minutes walking distance of all shops, restaurants, pubs, amenities, gondolas and nature trails. So park the car and enjoy the adventure! The Google map available gives an inaccurate location for Deer Lodge as it's closer and more central to the lifts than shown; across from the Village Park on Main St. It's a very peaceful view from our living areas and balcony. Guests love our location and you will too!

Greetings from Rob and Sandy. In 2003 we decided to put our money where are mouths were, get a piece of heaven and make it a work for us. It was time to stop saying we "should" and just do it. B.C. born and bred, we love Whistler and all it has to offer. Rob loves to ski but is equally happy to hit the gorgeous golf courses in the spring, summer and fall. Myself, I drag the dogs, golden Cooper and bichon Theo, out for mega walks through the beautiful hiking trails available. I've exhausted them many times! What's not to love. Take care, and hope to talk to you soon.
Me and my girlfriend stayed at the appartment for a week in Feb 2013. We arrived with a Whistler coach service, which operates from Vancouver airport to Whistler. The drop-off location is just next to the Deer lodge, where the appartment is situated. One great thing about the property is its central location. It will take you 7 min. to walk to the Whistler gondolas. All restaurants and bars are in walking distance. The appartment is quite spacious, has a big living room with a fully equiped kitchen. It has everything you need for your stay. We would gladly come back and reccomend a stay at the appartment to anyone looking for a great time skiing in Whistler.
Accommodations where great, location was outstanding and we had a great week long stay. Rooms were clean and we cooked a lot of our meals in our unit and the place had enough pots, pans and cookware for me to make some big meals without worrying about not having something I needed. Room was equipped with a dedicated hard line to the internet and not a wifi. A bit disappointing but nothing to really complain about.
My husband and 18 month old baby stayed here for a week in august. It was the best condo we've ever rented. Rob and Sandy, the owners, have created a really relaxing environment and I really appreciated how well stocked the condo was! The condo is filled with nice furniture and linens and we felt like we were staying at someone's home as opposed to a rental. We were able to cook a bunch (usually a real pain in a rental) with ease. And we loved the location--it's in Whistler Village but faces quiet Main Street across from the library (which is great because the library sells weekly membership for $10/week--especially good for families with kids as there is no need to haul a bunch of books with you!) Rob and Sandy are great owners who take pride in their condo and really care that their guests have a great experience. They were very responsive to our questions prior to arrival. They also had some great restaurant recommendations--all spot on. The price was also very good and we thought it was an excellent value. We loved Whistler and are already planning next year's visit, so we'll be sure to reserve the condo early.
My first impression of Deer Lodge was meeting the desk clerk for check-in. The lady was very friendly, quick and helpful with questions I had, however this is where several other condos check-in for Bear Lodge, Eagle Lodge, etc... so this doesn't really represent the condo that I rented for 15 days. Before even booking the condo, Sandra (the manager) called me and talked to me about the dates that were available. She was willing to wait until I could cancel the other location within a few days. This was less expensive than the other place by a hundred dollars but would have liked a better rate, such as $70 to $80 a night, since I was here for 15 days. The condo itself is open, spacious with huge windows to allow a lot of sunlight in! This specific location is great if you open the windows and the balcony door. You can sit and listen to the trees rustling, while you take a nap or read a book. It is also quiet from the busy tourists and rowdy people running around. Only one night was I kept up throughout the night. My purpose for being in Whistler was to attend Crankworx, one of the biggest mountain biking competitions in the world. I do not hear my neighbors taking a shower or anything. Occasionally, here someone walking down the hallway. I think the furniture and carpet could be updated but it is still very clean and comfortable. The decor could be more personalized. My friend is staying at another condo up the street, which has fabulous black & white photography all over the place, over a hundred books and movies to choose from. Gas fireplace could not be used because the gas is turned off during the summer, yet my friend's place he could fire it up. There were some chilly nights that the fireplace would have been cozy to warm up to. I had trouble with the tub clogging and requested maintenance to be done. It was not fixed after the person came up here to unclog the drain. A few days later, a friend that came over took the Draino from under the kitchen sink and fixed it. The next day I was able to take a nice bath. Before this I was sitting in stagnant water while showering. I understand that there are several people mountain biking and lots of dirt going into the drains but I think the maintenance person could have done what my friend did. This condo has a washer and dryer which as been an awesome, no need to go to a laundromat or even washing bike clothes in the sink. I know of other condos around this part of the village that do not have this available to them. Kitchen is nice, to include an expresso machine and all the pots, pans and dishes you will need for making meals. This saved a lot on going out to eat. Condiments are provided in the refrigerator. I have slept very well in the bed provided but I would prefer to have foam pillows versus feather. It has suited me well but would suggest upgrading the mattress, so that the feather top is not necessary. This is my own personal preference though. Others may love the goose feather. The feathers tend to stick out, which can be annoying. Maybe offer the option for people to choose between feather or foam. Overall, this condo was what I was looking for, quiet, spacious and allowed a lot of sunlight (when there was some available) into the living space. I had a full kitchen to save on going out to eat. I have enjoyed my trip to Whistler immensely and hope to come next year!
Hi Rob and Sandy I've just come on line to say 'thank you' and found you beat me to it. We've had the most wonderful time. Every day was a treat, expecially on our daughters days off, one of which happened to fall on Christmas day so we did 'fresh tracks' together, just fantastic. It was hard to leave but we know we'll be returning before too long. Once again many thanks for a comfortable and enjoyable holiday, and we'll have no hesitation in recommending your lovely condo. All the very best Lynda, David and (Caroline - Still in Whistler, lucky girl)
Booking was simple and convenient, which made our trip planning so easy. The front desk staff was helpful with checking in and any other questions we had. The condo was spotless and the owners even left out a bottle of wine to welcome us. Loved the mountain views from the condo, such a peaceful setting. The location in the village was perfect. Rob & Sandy have gone out of their was to stock the condo with lots of extras so we didn't need to shop for much. Have made a point to recommend this condo to friends and family and they have enjoyed it as well.
Sandy and Rob - I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your condo in Deer Lodge again. My wife, son and I had a wonderful long weekend there. We had some great skiing early with the fresh snow that fell Thursday night and Friday. We really enjoyed the way your condo was configured to maximize useful space and thought it was equipped better than any other that we had stayed at. I plan to keep your contact information and hopefully rent from you again in the future. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!
Stayed here previously several times. Always very comfortable with everything provided to make the stay truly enjoyable. The owners seem to have thought of everything - even a bottle of wine. The location is perfect as it's close to anything you need or want. Quiet yet only steps to all the action. We love to come here and would absolutely recommend a stay to anyone!
My wife and I had a great time at this property! The owners really take care of all the little things (Dvds to watch, advice on places to go for dinner, appliances, and cooking supplies), which makes a huge difference in the experience. The location was only a short walk to the lifts and on the quieter side, not directly on the main stroll. We had a wonderful time in Whistler and couldn't have found a better place at a better value.
My husband, 2 children and myself had a wonderful stay. The location is fabulous - within walking distance to everything. Clean and comfortable.
Condo has all the comforts of home and a great location. Will surely recommend to friends & family.
The condo is peaceful, comfortable, relaxing, well maintained and a pleasure to stay in. The kitchen is fully equipped and thoughtful attention has been given in anticipation of your needs. Fabulous location, very central to all amenities. Check-In is convenient and uncomplicated. Love to arrive, hate to leave!
Very clean and neat, lots of amenities and in walking distance to everything. Front desk staff very helpful.
We really enjoyed our time in your apartment in Whistler and were very reluctant to leave. The apartment is set up so well for comfortable visits and is in the best location. We wish we had booked for two weeks! This was our first time to Whistler and we hope to be able to get back some time soon.
