Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Relax in your very private hot tub, sunk into a 900 square foot wrap-around deck, surrounded by trees, and overlooking a beautiful swimming lake accessed from a dock by the property.

This idyllic retreat is truly the best of both worlds; perfectly positioned for winter and summer vacations. Many windows and two sets of French doors opening onto the large wrap-around deck make this fully-equipped home light and bright in all seasons.

Situated in a natural, rural setting amongst the trees, you can enjoy privacy while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck and enjoying the view of the lake. Cross-country ski, mountain bike, hike or walk - off the beaten track - directly from your door.

The lake is regularly frozen in the winter and ice skating is possible. In the summer the lake is exceptionally warm and is perfect for swimming with access from the dock situated on the property. Walk or take your boat over to the two beaches on the lake. Snow and water toys are available for your use or you can use the private tennis courts.

Located in a private, gated estate 15 minutes south of the Whistler Creek Gondola, with access to some of the best skiing in North America and the many fine restaurants, stores, and entertainment available in Whistler. From this rural, relaxing oasis you can enjoy everything that Whistler has to offer.

About Richard Hunter

Chartered accountant, originally from the UK,living in Vancouver since 1980. Currently CFO of a B.C. crown corporation. My wife Therese is a hairstylist and we have 3 grown boys, who do not seem to want to leave home.

Richard Hunter purchased this house in 1992

Why Richard Hunter chose British Columbia

We searched throughout southern B.C. for a vacation home and were extremely lucky to find Pinecrest Estates. There are only 75 homes in the estate and the ones on the lake never change hands. It has the perfect year-round appeal. It truly is a slice of Canadiana for a Brit like me. Snow, skate and ski. Mountains, canoeing, swimming and forest. Away from all of the shops and crowds in Whistler, but close enough if you need it. Plus the logs ... so cozy.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Richard's cabin! We had a beautiful view of the lake. The community of gated homes were beautiful and picturesque. The cabin is only 15 minutes away from Whistler. Our vacation was very peaceful and relaxing. We were able to enjoy the shops, restaurants and stores in Whistler during the day, yet return to a quiet, beautiful, relaxing community in the evening. We had a wonderful time with the kids, just hanging out at the cabin nearly every day and walking around the grounds near the lake. We also enjoyed the kids' park across the lake from the cabin. There is a nice beach next to the park with a deck that had lounge chairs we could sit on and admire the beautiful view! The cabin had everything we needed. All we did was bring the food and everything else was provided for us at the cabin. There were games and books for kids, which made our life easier:). Also, my kids loved the bunk bed upstairs! My Mother-in-Law liked that there was a bedroom downstairs so she would not have to walk upstairs. Our family loved the cabin and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, fun, peaceful getaway. Thank you Richard!!!

Great place to enjoy a weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

Richard's house was extremely cozy. Had everything we needed. We enjoyed the firestone, hot tub and the view of the lake (although covered in snow). We would definitely come again.

Peaceful getaway in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a family weekend and this property met all our needs. It was quiet and on the lake, plus while the property is outside Whistler, it was still easily accessible for skiing. We would certainly recommend this property.
