Transportation to ski lifts and Whistler Village for restaurants, groceries, shopping, liquor store, pubs and nightclubs etc:
- 3 minute cab ride or drive
- Bus stop 1 block away
- 15 minute walk along lit pedestrian valley trail
*In the winter, you'll probably want to drive or take a cab to the lifts, as walking 1km in ski boots is no fun. During the summer and shoulder seasons, however, it's a really nice walk or short bike ride into the village.
What types of groups is the chalet best suited for?
- One to three families with children or teens (one crib and high chair available)
- Three to five couples
The cabin was built by my grandparents in 1972 and has been in the family ever since. It's currently used by 4 generations (including my 90yr grandmother) from time to time. A classic A-frame, it has really high ceilings, lots of natural light and the entire interior is cedar which gives it a cozy, durable mountain feel. While the outside of the house is looking a little tired, we've modernized the interior and invested a lot in good furniture, mattresses and carpets.
The whole house.
It's quiet, and has great open views of the mountains. But, it's super close to the village (15 min walk, 3 min drive) too!
It's just 2 minutes walk to mountain bike and pedestrian trails, and less than a five minute drive to the ski lifts and three top notch golf courses (Palmer, Nicklaus, Trent Jones).
Taxis are easy, and so is walking. There is room for up to 3 vehicles.
We prefer to rent the cabin to families with children or teens, or to groups comprised of several couples. We do not rent to groups containing only young people under 25 (unless children or youth travelling with their parents).
Before you go, we love it if you strip all used beds and leave linens on the floor of the bedroom they belong to. Used towels can be left in the bathtub. Cleaning service is provided at the end of your trip and this helps them out.
While you're not expected to do a full clean before you depart, we expect the cabin to be left neat and tidy.
Towels and linens
Clean towels and linens are provided. Please use only what you need.
Soap, shampoo, hair dryer provided.
one high chair, one booster seat and two pack n play cribs are provided.
Our cabin is non smoking. If you have smokers in your party they can smoke in the carport or on the deck, but please be careful about butting out and also about leaving cigarette butts and empty cigarette packs on the ground. Please put all garbage in garbage cans (once the butts are truly out).
We do not rent to parties that include pets, sorry we love dogs but the wear and tear on the cabin is too much for us to allow any pets during your stay. Below is a link to some kennels in the sea to sky corridor (website hidden)
There is parking for up to 3 cars, but as there is no on-street parking, there is no additional parking. We have a 1 bedroom full time rental suite under the West facing deck (they have a separate entrance and it's a completely separate unit) and the tenants use the carport spot on the far left of the carport when pulling into the driveway. You can park in the other two covered carport spots, and then squeeze one additional car in the driveway as long as it doesn't block the tenants access.
Hot tub use:
Please only one hot tub per day per person and none later than 10:30pm at night. And, we have a hot tub maintenance team who checks it twice a week. They have their own access code and will knock before entering.
We stayed at Adams cabin along with 3 other families for a hockey tournament. For a group of families with young boys this was the perfect place. Plenty of clean comfortable beds for everyone, a well stocked kitchen, and an amazing deck with a view of the mountains, lake and trees. Adams home is extremely family friendly and inviting. Not once did we hear from the 7 boys that they were bored, the quick wifi helped! One of the parents in our group is coming back in a month with family from the States and has already considered your place to be the perfect family friendly place to stay. Quick drive the the village, hockey arena and surrounding sites. Thank you Adam.
Adam's cabin was a wonderful setup for a relaxing group get together. Plenty of comfortable beds, a nice main gathering space, and easy access to town made for a fun weekend. Adam was easy to work with and getting into the place was easy.
We didn't realize until we arrived that the cabin has a downstairs unit with a full time tenant, which was a surprise. Looking back on the listing, there is mention of the tenant under the "vehicles" section, but it would be great to give future guests more heads up in the front of the description.
That being said, this didn't negatively affect our experience at all. Would love to come back to Adam's cabin in the future and highly recommend it!
Adam was a great host. Responsive all along, troubleshooting quickly (and there were only very minor issues), and provided a lovely home for our extended family of 11 people.
The neighborhood is quiet residential, with a lovely wooded footpath to central village nearby. Walk is about 20 minutes or a 5 minute drive. Nice to be outside the hustle of the village but close enough to enjoy it!
Our visit to Whistler and stay at Adam's mountain cabin was fantastic. We stayed during my wedding as the base for my family the my groomsmen and it suited our purposed well. The cabin is lovely, as per the photos but also loaded with games, quality appliances and linen, and a great entertainment system, if only we had more time to make use of all that was on offer. Due to the location having a vehicle is important (at least during summer) as it is a good 15 - 20 minute walk from the village, but we knew this when we booked.
Adam provided fast and accurate communication and answers to our many questions.
Would definitely recommend and revisit Adam's Whistler cabin.
We had a fabulous stay at this cabin! It was a great location... Walking distance to the village and the lake! The house was full of everything you could possibly need and plenty of room!!
We wanted to have a few days skiing/relaxing in whistler the week before our wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the Mountain/Lakeview Cabin. Perfect location and only a short enjoyable walk into the village. We were a group of 11 Australians and to finish each day with a few drinks on that beautiful deck was perfect...having the BBQ to cook on was like being back home....the spa was great too, not to mention the fire, the pool table where some of the adults challenged the young adults. The beds were so so comfortable. The place had a real sense of family homeliness which was great. We would highly recommend this cabin and hope to return there again one day ourselves.
While we didn't meet the hosts, everything was very easy.

About the Host, Adam
I have a few properties listed.
The one in Vancouver is home for my wife, five kids. We live pretty simply for a big family, and spend a lot of time at home as all of our kids are homeschooled, so while you'll find a well stocked kitchen, we don't have a television or central stereo unit.
The cabin at Whistler is my grandmothers. She and my late grandfather built it in 1972 and it's been in the family ever since. We've done several renovations over the years as our family has grown.
It's a classic A-frame cabin, with various extensions off of it. It has massive decks, which we pretty much live on in the summertime, and loads of natural lights through large windows and french doors. The inside is all cedar, so it has a very cozy mountain feel to it.
We're up there a few times a month all year round, and it's also used by my uncles and cousins, and my 93 year old grandmother too from time to time. Most of us live an hour and a half away in Vancouver.
We used to ski loads, and while we still get up the hill a fair bit, Whistler is a brilliant retreat for us. We often go up on rainy weekends and just chill in the house with the kids, or go for short hikes or bike rides through the woods.
