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
Although we did not have the chance to have a lakeview room we still enjoy our view of the mountain from our balcony huge patio doors.Room is perfect, bathroom is very nice with real stone walls, a gas fireplace warms up the place very quickly even though the cathedral ceiling is over 20' high.A little fridge, sink and micro-wave are there to use at your convenience,The staff are from all around the world and very attentive.I highly recommend if you want to be outside the crownd but only 5 min of all activities.
Everyone here is super nice. Although we weren’t able to check in early, we spent some time in the village. This was easy because their shuttle service is complementary and goes every half hour from 7:30am - 10:30 pm.
We got a lake view studio that cake with a fireplace, balcony, kitchenette, and a spacious bathroom. So far we love it because it’s away from the crowded village, but the village is still easily accessible with the shuttle.
Nita Lake Lodge is a beautiful alternative if you want to stay a bit outside the main Village. It is quiet and peaceful, perfect for families. The rooms are beautiful and the service was excellent. Walking distance to Creekside Gondola and to grocery store, liquor store and other amenitieg. Great restaurants onsite and within walking distance. Would definitely stay there again.
We had the most beautiful one night mini break at the Nita Lake Lodge in Creekside. The check in staff were so friendly and polite and the room was ready early so we could check in at 2pm. We went to the spa and had the most gorgeous deep tissue massages, it feels so decedent in there with the decor and views and the staff were perfect at helping us relax. The hot tubs on the roof feel so luxurious, even if we did only stay out there for 10 minutes due to it being -15 centigrade!
Our room was a 1 bedroom suite and while we didn't book the premium lakeview we still had an incredible view of the mountains so couldn't have been happier. The suite was huge and had a lovely big bathroom. Loved the coffee machine and toiletries!
We did ask for some extra coffee pods which never arrived but I was able to grab some from a housekeeper on my floor. We also asked for and were granted a late check out which must not have been written down as someone came to check on us at 11:25am but i know how busy hotels can get so that didn't detract from our enjoyment at all.
Keep up the good work guys, you have a wonderful hotel and staff!
The lodge is in the perfect location to walk to the slopes and has a very convenient bus to take you to the Village of Whistler. The lodge was very nicely decorated for the holidays. We traveled with a family of four (two teenagers) and we had one bed and pull out couch. The pull out couch was more comfortable than most we have slept on in other hotels - a plus. The breakfast was fantastic! A great way to start a day of skiing.
