The townhouse has an open concept living area, with the living room, dining room and kitchen in the same space. Here is the sunken living room with a cosy fire and a view of the West Coast forest (with snow in winter!) outside. The aspect is quiet and private. There is lots of firewood on the patio for warm, cosy evenings. The living room has a 40 inch flat screen TV with HD signal. The pull out couch with queen size mattress and down comforter is in the living room. There is a double closet for storage on the higher level.
As you enter from the foyer into our one bedroom home, this is the room that greets you. Relax in the dining room, looking over the sunken living room. The view is onto our patio and the towering hemlocks. It's peaceful, quiet and private.
The kitchen is on the same level as the dining room. This kitchen is an efficient, fully functional cooking zone. It features full size appliances and is stocked with basics. For those who cook to relax and connect, look no further. A great place for apres drinks and snacks, or cook the whole dinner.
The Bedroom with queen bed. This bed has a down comforter and a good mattress, with individual pocket coils, ensuring you feel well rested when you get up in the morning. This room has a double closet.
The Valley Trail right behind The Gables. This trail follows Fitzsimmons Creek along the back side of The Gables and connects to the Village and the Upper Village.
This is Fitzsimmons Creek, just behind The Gables. Look above the bridge and you see the Excalibur Gondola, which goes from Whistler Village up Blackcomb Mountain. Just behind the gondola are the lower slopes of Whistler Mountain. But wait till you see the alpine!
This area is behind The Gables. On the right is the Covered Bridge, one of the landmarks of the parks in Whistler. You can take this 5 minute walk into the Village.
This is a sitting area beside Fitzsimmons Creek and the Covered Bridge. This is a lovely, warm, relaxing spot on a sunny day in spring, summer or fall, and even on a sunny warm winter day.

The Gables is the perfect location! Situated between the Village and Upper Village, it is 2 minutes from all skiing, the bike park, restaurants and shops.
In the winter it is a 2 minute walk to up or download all lifts on both mountains, and to all lessons, rentals and guest services, the Tube Park and night skiing.
In the summer, it is a short 1 minute ride across the road to the Bike Park.
The grocery and liquor store are a short walk into the Village.
The Gables are situated beside Fitzsimmons Creek and Park. It is quiet and private, yet convenient to everything. You can park the car and walk!
In the summer, The Gables is right on the Valley Trail, which takes you into the Village, as well as connecting onto an extensive trail system throughout Whistler. The gondola for sightseeing and the bike park are 2 minutes away. Two golf courses are within walking distance. The skateboard park is on the other side of the creek. Swimming at Lost Lake is a 15 minute walk along the Valley Trail, so there is no need to jockey for parking.
