Welcome to a modern Zen take on the traditional ski lodge—we’re talking clean lines, natural materials (wood beams, stone fireplaces), and inviting textures including buttery leather and nubby plaid. Colors reflect the hotel’s dramatic surroundings; from the inky waters of the lake to the rust-hued foliage. All of the 77 guest rooms (even the smallest studios) feature fireplaces, fully equipped (if small) kitchenettes, and 40-inch LCD televisions. Large slate tile bathrooms have separate rain showers and deep soaking tubs. Rooms overlooking the lake are rightly popular, but those with mountain and forest views are just as impressive. Larger suites, such as the two-bedroom Nita Suites, have split levels, kitchens and large balconies above the lake. Although skiing is the main focus in Whistler (hiking and biking in summertime), there are plenty of amenities at the lodge to keep non-skiers and youngsters occupied: a quiet library, a game room, a plunge pool, a hot tub, and more. In the summer months, free bikes and fishing rods are available. The impressive on-site spa highlights Nita Lake’s wellness vibe, with a yoga studio and a program of detoxifying treatments. The lodge also holds frequent fitness camps and classes with professional trainers. The Cure Lounge & Patio is a great place for an après-ski cocktail, with its comfy sofas, fireplace, and frequent live music. Otherwise, there’s the Aura restaurant, which specializes in European comfort food made from sustainable and organic ingredients.
In the Area
With its exclusive lakeside setting away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler village (but still close to the gondola), this boutique property holds some of the best views, food and amenities in the area. And that’s saying a lot for a place that hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. Featuring Canadian specialties such as Vancouver Island black cod and Canadian wild arctic caribou chops, the award-winning Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler Village is a local favorite. And be sure to take a swig from the restaurant’s 14,000-bottle wine cellar, as well. With access to more than 432,000 acres on hundreds of unspoiled mountains and glaciers in British Columbia, the local company Whistler Heli Skiing runs guided group tours to some of the country’s most stunning terrain until late April. From April through October, the most scenic and fun way to get from Vancouver to Whistler is the Rocky Mountaineer, a train that runs through the Canadian wilderness. It delivers you to the main station just a few steps from the doors of Nita Lake Lodge.
How to Get There
We have just come back from the most Wonderful Whistler vacation ever!!
Nita Lake Lodge is just beyond description!!! Rustic elegance with the most attentive staff! There is nothing like waking up to a beautiful view of Nita Lake and it’s surrounding mountains and spending a day in magical Whistler.
The front staff was EXTREMELY helpful in helping us get the most out of our vacation and the spa staff was unbelievable especially Grace!! If you go to Whistler this is an unbelievable resort that will enhance your vacation in every way.
We attended a wedding at Nita Lake lodge and brought our 7 month puppy with us. Front desk was fabulous and we were able to get an early check in and a late check out. The extra time was much appreciated getting ready for the wedding and recovering from it. The rooms were spotless and they even had all the dog necessities out for us and ready to go. Just overall very accommodating and the rooms were so stunning! We even had a lake front view which we weren't expecting.
Nita Lake offers delicious restaurants options and cafes. They are right on the bike network so walking the dog or exploring the best of Whistler in the summer is right out your door! I would definitely look to stay at Nita lake again next time I visit whistler. It made a lovely wedding weekend away that much more lovely.
Loved staying here, out of the bustle of main town but close enough to enjoy. Free shuttle to and from Whistler centre.
Rooms were large, heated floor in the bathroom to dry the ski gear on:)
Was lovely to walk on the frozen lake although a little unnerving at first.
Ate in the restaurant a few times, manager was rude however the staff were very friendly and made up for it.
Internet was very hit and miss even though we paid extra due to work commitments, when we complained we were just told it's going to get sorted....it didn't for the duration of our stay which meant any work correspondence had to be completed in Whistler.
