Great Place To Stay!

Kathy from Pearl City, United States
Date: Mar-27-2019 for a stay in Mar 2019

This was a great place to stay. Very clean and fully stocked with everything you need (I think that was the first time we didn't have to personally restock the toilet paper).

Although it was along the road, noise was not a problem. The only gripe I had was how far the unit was from the elevator. After a long day, it felt like quite a trek. The stairs were just outside the door but we couldn't take advantage of the fire exit to the outside of the complex because it was partially blocked by solid, packed snow (which seems like a fire hazard).

The owners were very accommodating and flexible with our checkin/out. We were very satisfied with our stay, thank you Yamadas!

Great place just steps from Blackcomb Gondola

henry from Clyde Hill, United States
Date: Jan-23-2019 for a stay in Jan 2019

Great place with steps away from Blackcomb Gondola and AMAZING hosts! They provided us everything we needed even lots of toys for our baby.

Their place was not a typical rental condo with very minimal amenities. The owners provided us everything we could ask for and the kitchen was fully equipped for cooking with all the essential ingredients. We would gladly go back whenever the unit is available and works out with our calendar.

Great ski week at Whistler!!

Alexa from Saint John, Canada
Date: Mar-14-2017 for a stay in Mar 2017

We stayed here for a week in March and everything met or exceeded our expectations! The owners were very quick and responsive to our initial booking request, and were very helpful to make check-in and out a breeze. The accommodation is very nice and accurate to pictures. The place is well stocked and the beds are very comfortable!! Glacier Lodge is very convenient to for skiing and we couldn't have been happier! Thank you!!

We use our condo personally so its not just a hotel, its our home away from home.   In our kitchen we provide basic cooking  supplies for our guests to use so  you can cook basic meals without  having to buy salt and pepper etc.   We want our guests to feel cozy and comfortable in our home just like we do.  Nothing better than sitting in front of the fire and watching the new snow fall  on the trees in the park. Air Condtioning for the hot summer days and nights.

We think the location of our vacation home is the BEST LOCATION on the mountain. SKI IN SKI OUT to the Blackcomb Wizard chairlift. If you are a cross country skier we are a block away from the Lost Lake trail.  A 5 minute walk down the path and over the river to the center of the village, Shopping, restaurants, night life you name it, but return to the peace and quiet of the Upper Village. Free shuttle bus stops in front of the condo and its only two stops to the village if you are too tired from your day of skiing. For summer activities we are close to the hiking trails, golf courses mountain biking and the local lakes.
