Occasionally you find a property (generally thanks to TripAdvisor) that marries architectural and scenic interest, top-notch accommodations, and helpful, interesting and charming staff to make a stay indelibly etched in memory. Nita Lake Lodge is such a property.
We arrived via the Rocky Mountaineer Sea to Sky Climb train (5 star in it's own right, but that's another review) and our luggage was in the room when we arrived. The train station is connected to the lodge, so unlike others that were transported to hotels around the village, we went straight to our rooms. Our room (which was booked 7 months in advance) was a 2 bedroom that was incredibly spacious, had a large fireplace, deck, and scenic view over the lake. Peaceful and Perfect. Highly recommend.
The Lodge is situated across the street from Whistler Creekside Village on a very private lake that saw my daughters spend hours canoeing, kayaking and running/walking around. Canoes and Kayaks are available for free (as well as bikes) at the front desk, and the service staff was very helpful in getting you situated for enjoying that simple luxury. The staff (in particular, Victoria) went over the top to assist, helping us get set up with Glacier Tours, Horseback Riding, Zip-line tours and all of the many things to see and do around Whistler.
From the lodge, it is about a 5km (15-20 min) walk into Whistler Village on the beautiful, paved trail and I highly encourage you do so. The hotel provides constant van (Mercedes) service throughout the Village, so we would often choose to walk in and ride back.
We rented a car and returned it the next day. Cowboy Glen and several other drivers would always make us feel very welcome driving back to the lodge or wherever we needed to go. The village area is compact and the Nita Lake staff made sure we always got to where we needed to be.
I am sure there are many who like the convenience of being at some of the many other great properties in Whistler and simply being in the Village. As for my family, we found the few minute walk or ride a pleasant buffer to a property that truly leverages the best in peace and beauty that Whistler has to offer. I would highly recommend Nita Lake Lodge.
