A tranquil lakeside area with tons of trails for walking and biking between Whistler's villages
The location about a mile from the base of Whistler Mountain feels serene and remote, but is still just a short walk from the restaurants and attractions of Creekside. Trails connect the hotel to Whistler Village as well as other lakes, such as Alpha Lake (to the south) and Alta Lake (to the north).
Although it's a good two or three miles southwest of Whistler Village, Creekside still has that charming mountain-town vibe that many tourists flock to Whistler for specifically. Because of its distance from the major tourist spots, it retains a fairly low-key and relaxed pace, without sacrificing all the necessities (such as restaurants and bars). The hotel runs a free regular shuttle to Whistler Village.
A luxurious escape from the madness of the touristy parts of Whistler, the 77 suites at Nita Lake Lodge evoke sophisticated, mountain-town style, with high, vaulted ceilings, fireplaces, and beautiful balconies with gorgeous views. Decor is effortlessly elegant, playing on simple, contrasting colors, like clean, white linens and dark wood trim. An on-site European restaurant features organic and sustainable food. More dining options can be found in Creekside -- just a short walk away -- and a free shuttle carts visitors to Whistler regularly. The lodge's tiny pool leaves much to be desired, but guests can swim in the Nita Lake -- it's cold, but entirely possible in the summer -- and other lakes that are all within a 10-minute walk.
