We enjoyed a lot the trip thanks to your cozy house made perfectly for 4 families. We loved every space.

Hello Virginia, Just to let you know that we all really enjoyed staying at your chalet, all the attention to details made our stay comfortable. Lovely place, great taste in decorating, very warm and calming atmosphere. Thanks for sharing your lovely place for some much needed bonding.
Take Care, Nasreen (extended family)
What a wonderful time our group had! Thank you for making it possible. Your place was so warm and inviting and provided a great atmosphere for both focus and relaxation. Everything we needed was provided.
Thank you again for all of your help in making our stay a great one!
Hope to see you again,
Matt (focus group leader)
Just a note to thank you for the time we were able to spend in your Whistler home. Comfortable beds, restful color palettes; warm wood, cool granite. Modern conveniences and lots of space, with the coziness of a cabin. It was perfect!
Thanks very much for giving our family the opportunity to spend time away. So good to sleep, to laugh….a restorative time.
Greg and Carol (family)
We all had a great time and the house was fantastic. I thought you may be interested in some feedback regarding our stay:
1) The first (members of our) group of people reported, accurately, that "The house . is . amazing."
2) Your appliances, linens, beds, and couches are all excellent.
Matt (friends retreat)
We loved all the family spaces that gave our extended family ample space to build memories. The large front yard mounded with snow was a favorite place for the children while we adults watched them play for hours through the large picture window from within the warmth of the living room.
Accommodations allowed us to share home cooked meals, do our laundry and engage in all the activities at the Whistler resort. All the kids and adults want to know when we can do this again.
We will cherish the memories of our family stay at the chalet for years to come. It exceeded our expectations of a really great family snow vacation!
Sandi (online review for multiple family reunion)
Thank you so much for our wonderful retreat! Sometimes our lives get so busy, but we were able to learn, love and laugh! We have only a few times a year to get together -- & this will be a memorable one! Thanks for your home - it was a true blessing :)
Thank you so much Virginia for allowing our family to come up here. It was a wonderful time & allowed all of us to get together to celebrate our family : ) Both my times here have been filled with great memories that I won't forget. It's amazing how sharing your house can unite & bring people closer together. Thank you so much! ... we loved our time here.
We had a great time - loved your shower & big kitchen and all the thoughtful things you did to welcome us. Thank you for your hospitality. Our family enjoyed being here in the cozyness of your chalet - and it snowed.
Thanks for letting us stay here. I had a blast and loved playing in the snow.
Your chalet was perfect for our extended family with the great layout & flow and areas to hang out in - it truly felt like home. We would like to all come here for our family retreat twice a year... we can even add another 7 grand-children before we outgrow the house.
With gratitude - the H family

Thank you so much Virginia! We had a wonderful stay at the Pinetree Chalet. It accommodated us all so well and suited all of our needs perfectly! I think we all enjoyed ourselves even more than we thought we would. We can't wait to return again some day. Thanks again for everything you have done to make our trip to go so smoothly.
Kind regards, Marissa (multi-family getaway)
Very nice with plenty of parking. Open beam and natural wood accents, large windows and enough room for the whole family. Nice large hot tub in a wooded area off entrance. Two decks with unobstructed mountain views.
Anthony - google review (Sun Peaks wedding venue)
We had a wonderful stay at Pinetree Chalet! The setup was perfect for our extended family. The fireplace and sauna were very welcome after our days of skiing. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!
Kathy (extended family getaway)
Virginia, The place is SPECTACULAR and we are blown away. Thank you again for having us. It was truly lovely here. All the best, J
LOVED the steam shower! I NEED to own that shower! BEAUTIFUL HOME! (Ashley)
We had such a wonderful time here! Thank you for opening your house to us. It was absolutely perfect. Our friends from NYC had such a great time in Whistler! (Ali)
Great times in Whistler paradise, thank you for letting us use your gorgeous hideaway. (Ashley #2)
(group of friends)
Thank you for opening your home to our family. We had a wonderful time that went by too quickly! My son-in-law and I had a nice walk around the neighborhood and saw some amazing homes with quite a variety of styles. We made all our meals (except for some lunches) in your lovely kitchen. We played Talisman and board games at night and enjoyed the mountain during the day. We also enjoyed the Scandanavian Spa one day with our daughter and son-in-law. What a treat! We have been enormously blessed.
Corinne (extended family getaway)
We had an incredible time in Whistler. The house was perfect for our group! Thank you for the late checkout.
Thank you again for your flexibility and making our trip a possibility. A lot of great memories were made.
Warm Regards, Christy

We loved staying at Pinetree Chalet! We immediately felt at home and comfortable while staying here. Our entire group of 12 was easily accommodated, with plenty of space to spare. We loved the location of the house as well. Communicating with Virginia and Neil was very efficient. Getting a response never took more than 24 hours. We will definitely be coming back to Pinetree Chalet for our next trip to Whistler.
Our group has spent a wonderful time here. Different nationalities, culture, language... but together in this amazing house!! Thank you so much Virginia for everything!
The house excellent, the weather and the snow better than impossible and friends, what more can we ask for??
Thanks, Katie and Cia
Thank you for allowing us the use of your wonderful home. Our group of 11 family and friends was very comfortable. We had a great time using your lovely home as a home base for our time in Whistler. We especially enjoyed the Sauna and the waffle maker! We hope many other will also have the opportunity to enjoy the amazing accommodations at Pinetree.

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my friends.
Thanks a lot for letting us have a great time in your beautiful chalet. It was fantastic! We will recommend it to all of our friends for sure. It will be our first choice for our future plans :)
Thanks a lot,
Maryam (group of friends)
We had 20 adults all staying here for an outdoor adventure and it couldn't have gone smoother! The owners were very helpful, the location was great and the house had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone with a big group headed to Whistler.
Mark (online review)
16 ladies stayed at the chalet this May 2016 and were quite pleased with the location and the overall set up of the chalet . It presented as a unique ski style chalet with the charm of a wood cabin . Very accommodating hosts ! Thanks !
Carly (online review from ladies retreat organizer)
Thank you for everything! The chalet was just great! Old and new friends, old and new year. A perfect break from reality to ski and relax.
Thank you for everything!
Alla & friends (couples retreat)
Thank you for letting us stay at Pinetree Chalet. We had a wonderful time and the house really suited our needs!
Jenna (girls getaway)
We had a beautiful stay at Pinetree Chalet. The host was excellent with recommendations & communication. She made sure that we had all that we needed for a great trip. This chalet has an amazing layout with bedrooms at the top and the living areas on the bottom (with 1 bedroom at bottom). We appreciated the ski entrance which had plenty of room for gear and to get ready. The kitchen is really well stocked with everything you need to cook gourmet meals. The living rooms and dining room are amazing! The pics are very accurate. The Ponderosa room doesn't have a shower--only a bathtub & handheld shower which we were prepared for. The location is not a true ski out--you need to walk up the road a short distance but a true ski in. Overall, we had an amazing stay in a very beautiful chalet.
Dorothy & friends (online review)
Pinetree Chalet: Thank you for having us! We are a family of 12 that lives in various places throughout the Fraser Valley. It is always a challenge for us to find places large enough for us all to stay, but this was perfect!
We love the quick walk to town, the incredible views, the sound of the river while in the hot tub and the large table!
The kitchen has everything you could need or want, AND there are 2 fridges!! SO handy!
One tip, we spent MANY hours looking for wildlife on the mountains across from us and saw nothing! We did see bears on the mountains in town though!
We hope you have as much fun as we did! :)
Review from our Sun Peaks guest book
Thanks, Virginia, for this amazing chalet! Our group stood in awe as we entered the chalet and just took in the view.
The kitchen is so well stocked, and same goes for everything in this place. It provided a safe environment for our church retreat and we want to thank you for all your help and all your wonderful tips!
Rosanna (church retreat)

Audrey (family reunion) online review and feedback
We LOVED staying at your lovely chalet. It was beautiful!!
Thank you so much for all your help. We were so pleased with the chalet and found it such a warm and welcoming place. You have done an amazing job of stocking everything anyone might need. We cooked great meals on the grill and had lots of adventures in Whistler. Thank-you again, Virginia, for sharing your beautiful chalet with us and being such a great hostess. We will treasure this trip for a lifetime.

(4 families for a family reunion)
We had 9 adults and 7 children staying here. The place was great for all of us. The website is excellent in providing all the information. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner, Virginia, is excellent and very helpful. She responds to your emails really quick and tries to do everything she can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The parking area can fit up to 4 cars which was perfect for us. This place is close to Whistler. The 2 master bedrooms are huge and spacious. The living room can well accommodate 12 people comfortably. It was a nice cozy living room for friends to gather around and talk. I would definitely come back here again!!!
Jennifer (online review from multi-family getaway)
You were so helpful in planning our stay in Whistler!
We loved cooking in the kitchen with everything we needed and more. Our group loved the layout of the house - lots of room for cooking and eating together. Plus there was a lot of space for us to "hang out" in. We felt totally at home.
Beds were perfect! So comfy we all had a good sleep in peace & quiet. I don't know what sheets you use but I want some at home.
Thanks for a wonderful time in Whistler! We will definitely be back again!
(entry in guest book)
We are back home now after a lovely stay in your home. Thank you very much for sharing your home with us, it was perfect and it was in a perfect location. Vancouver and Whistler were great places to visit, and everyone was so friendly. We would definitely love to come back and stay again some time if possible.
Thanks again for everything!
Michelle (multi-family reunion)
Thank you so much for an amazing beautiful house to us.
We are half Canadian & Japanese group which is kids to senior. Kids had a great time and adult had a easy to use everything around house!! Setting this much clean and welcome is I was able to feel your kindness and warm harts.
We really would love to back here again. <3 <3
We are now back in Japan safe and sound. Thank you so much for renting us your house. The house was beautiful and cozy and everything was perfect.
Thanks again. We had a fantastic time in Whistler and a great comfortable stay at your house.
Chisato & Patrick : ) (school group from Japan)
What a beautiful chalet! My family and friends were impressed with the cozy vibe and layout of the chalet. The cabin was easy to find and there was enough parking for at least 4 cars.
The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook up a delicious meal.
We especially love the commercial coffee maker.
Monica (online review above, guest book comment below)
Wow! We had such an amazing time. The chalet was cozy and well stacked with the necessary equipment to make delicious meals.
Everyone was amazed with this cozy chalet.
We hope to stay here again.
We cooked meals in your kitchen, eating breakfast and dinner together family style. How nice to have friends surrounding you to ring in the new year. Some of us had been to Whistler before, some of us had never even crossed the Canadian border! You have a house in some beautiful part of the country.
A few of our favorite things about Pinetree Chalet:
- the sauna
- the steam shower (with radio!)
- automatic fireplace
- Cassandra. freaking out because she had never heard a trash compactor before
- the sauna
Thanks for all the extra blankets and other accommodations. Thank you for the goodies!
Amy, Brian and friends (group of friends)
Virginia was an amazing host. She is accommodating and provided plenty of communication prior to our stay. She provided suggestions on where to fly in and which border crossing we should use/radio station to ensure a fast border crossing. Virginia @ Pinetree Chalet provided all the necessities to make yourselves comfortable for your stay. Pinetree Chalet is a lovely place, and a great place for a large group to enjoy and explore Whistler. We were surprised that Virginia even asked us for the group specifics so that everyone could get their own bed to sleep in.
Christopher (friends & couples) online review
Pinetree Chalet Whistler is a very cozy retreat spot. It was really fun cooking. Read the description on the site, it's exactly how it is...two big bedrooms with some sleeping on beds - plus extra floor mattresses and two other smaller bedrooms for two... the most interesting part that I have yet to try: a sauna and stand-up shower with lights and music. What I like the most about the place: the open kitchen and living room which became the hangout spot for everyone-- lots of interaction and conversation.... I enjoyed the place a lot...
Angie (online review from retreat organizer)
A quick thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us. It was Terrific - a little piece of heaven.
Thank you for the WONDERFUL suggestions (for things to do). It was especially nice that we did not have to be cleared out by noon, as it was dinner time when we finally made it back to the Cabin to Load up the Bikes and pile into the Van. We did not get to tour Emerald. The time was just too short.
Thanks again. We hope to be able to do this again. ;)
Roger (extended family)
Thank you for sharing your fine home with us this Christmas. We truly had a great time - being with ALL our family was a gift that we ALL appreciated immensely. Your home fit our needs perfectly - and we hope you will continue inviting guests to experience love with family and friends.
B and L families (extended Family)

W & S families (extended family)
Happy New Year! We are back home now after a lovely holiday in your home. Thank you very much for sharing your home with us, it was perfect and it was in a perfect location. Vancouver and Whistler were great places to visit, and everyone was so friendly. We would definitely love to come back and stay again some time if possible.
Thanks again for everything!
Michelle (Extended family Holiday reunion)
Virginia was a wonderful host! She was easy to communicate with and very informative. The house is accurately depicted by the photos, the upstairs rooms being very spacious while the downstairs rooms are a little cozier. The living room is pretty roomy and the dining table fits 10 comfortably. The coffee and waffle maker were great!
Cherylyn (multi-family online review)
Thank you for allowing our families to stay here before school starts. They loved the power shower and the huge bedroom that our 7 girls were able to share. After two days of rain we enjoyed beautiful sun in Whistler. We all had a great time. The spa was great for the Moms and the golf course was very conveniently located for the Dads.
Perfect way to end summer vacation.
I just wanted to let you know that we all had a great time and the cabin was great!
On our way out, we wanted to leave a note giving thanks. Thank you for sharing this lovely space with us. It has been a time of rest, relaxation, prayer and fun. Canada has been good to us. Farewell for now to this beautiful place. With peace.
(Youth Leaders Retreat)
Great place to stay . Well located . Fantastic hosts.
Abe (family online review)
Awesome space. Hosts were great and we just loved the chalet. We’ll be back for sure.
Lance (family online review)
Our stay at Pinetree was fantastic. We had originally booked in December and with the highway closures Virginia was amazing to work with on finding an alternative solution. The home is open and perfect for larger groups and families. A short walk to the ski runs leading you right into the base of the mountain. We would definitely stay here again!!!
Matt (multi-family online review)
The place was great, lots of room, very clean and well stocked. Great location and great view of the mountains, and I've never seen a table that big!. We would happily stay here again.
Liam (family reunion online review)
The new management (Pinetree Chalet) has done a spectacular job updating and renovating the chalet. The new seating and mattresses provide a spacious, yet intimate feel.
Sebastian (google review)
The space was absolutely stunning with an awesome degree of flexibility in the room layout! The host was really on the ball and on top of everything throughout our stay.
Garth (google review)
It looks great from the outside - big windows, lots of parking, lots of decks and balconies. Inside is breathtaking yet so comfortable. I didn't want to leave! Definitely coming back.
