Our family of four stayed here for a week in July. The place was clean and spacious, exactly as described. You can walk to the Blackcomb base where the family Adventure Zone and Blackcomb lifts are in about 5 minutes, and Whistler Village in about 15 minutes, half that time if you bike. Lost Lake is also about a 10 minute walk away. While relatively close to everything, it is far enough away to be very quiet at nights.
It was nice to have a garage to store our bikes and other gear, but it is a little small to park a car unless you have a compact, and then there is no room to store anything else if a car is in there. No matter, there is covered parking about 100 feet away and you can park in front of the unit to unload.
The condo is well furnished and the kitchen well stocked with utensils. WiFi is fast (I clocked it consistently at 15 Mbps downlink on speedtest) and there is Telus cable TV and a large flatscreen with a DVR in the living room - useful because we could record World Cup matches to watch in the evenings.
Overall, this is a great place, but here are some minor issues/suggestions:
- Balcony does not have a table. It would be nice to sit outside to eat there in the summer evenings.
- Windows do not have screens. It was particularly hot the week we stayed so we needed to keep the windows open at night, and the lack of screens meant annoying flying insects got into the house.
- We did not find the master bedroom mattress to be that comfortable.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

We had such an amazing time at the condo. The condo is on a slight hill which is 20 meters from the bus stop with free shuttles to both Blackcomb and Whistler so it's very convenient. The condo is just as advertised 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The bottom floor has the garage and a newer model washer/dryer so you can have fresh skiing/snowboarding gear each day. The second floor has a nice kitchen, dining area, a bathroom, a fireplace and outside patio with a BBQ. The top floor has the 2 bedrooms with plenty of closet space to arrange all your clothes. The top floor also has bathtub with jacuzzi jets which makes it perfect after a day of skiing/snowboarding. If you want a nice cozy place to rest up for the next day of adventure with a great price, this is the place!!! If you want a mansion for partying on the side of the mountain, this is not the place for you.
The entire rental experience went extremely smooth. All instructions and directions were clear and concise. Making the entire stay effortless. The owners were extremely nice and pleasant to work with.
Be aware, the garage parking will not fit large vehicles such as a full size suv (ie. Chevy Yukon). A minivan will barely fit in the garage. However, there are plenty of parking in the condo complex about 75 meters from the condo. Just remember to place the parking placard on your rear windshield mirror.
Exactly as expected

We had an awesome time at this place! It was so close to the Wizard lift, only a 10 min walk away. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was a little small, but we made do. The garage and extra parking spaces were a plus to store skiis and gear. For the price, it was exactly as expected. We would definitely come back!

We stayed in the property for 10 nights with our 4 kids. We found it very comfortable, plenty of room and it contributed to a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The snow wasn't fantastic when we were there but had it been better we would have been able to ski home to our door. All in all it was a great place to stay, very clean, all the things you need, great value and we would definitely stay there again and/or recommend to friends.

We enjoyed our stay at Forest Trails. It was very comfortable and as advertised, there were no surprises. The kitchen was clean and well stocked. It was nice and quiet on a corner unit. It was nice to have the fireplace, internet access and lots of options on the T.V. The location was great, not far from the bus stop for the free shuttle. There was enough snow that we could almost ski to the cabin.
The garage is small, we could not fit our jeep in but the guest parking was only steps away.

The condo was great, as usual! We had a wonderful trip and the condo suits our needs very well. It's reasonably convenient to ride back and forth to the lifts (even on DH bikes) and into the village for dinner, and we really enjoy having an actual garage to store our bikes and gear while we are there. We've stayed three years in a row now and will be back again!! :)

We really enjoyed our stay at Forest Trails. The location was ideal for us because we were biking on Whistler mountain. There are many walking/biking trails that will take you to the lake, village, or gondola/base area. Parking wasn't too difficult in the summer but I could see it being challenging in the winter. Be careful when parking your car roadside. Pay attention to the signage. We used the 1-car garage to secure our 6 bikes and that was a huge amenity and space saver! We slept 7 people comfortably. We enjoyed the deck and used the BBQ. The kitchen was well equipped as well.
A very Comfortable and Clean Unit near all amenities!

We stayed here for the first time this July and we will definitely be returning again. The unit was very clean and the space comfortable for us and the three kids. The 2nd bedroom provided the kids with very comfortable sleeping arrangements. The portable air conditioner was helpful on the hot days. We found a nice route to the main village which made it a pleasant shorter walk. The home has everything you will need for your stay including stainless steel cookware and cast iron skillet instead of a bunch of scratched up unusable non-stick cookware which we really appreciated. Thanks for going the extra mile Lorne and Dianne! We will return again!

After spending many days in rented units I am always amazed at the cleanliness of your townhouse. The location allows us to park our car and leave it there for the duration of our stay...This is first time we have taken our grand children and they had the time of their lives. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

We enjoyed this townhouse within walking distance of the center of Whistler.
Lorne was helpful in providing a crib for my baby and flexible when I had to change dates. The place was cozy with comfotable beds and a fully stocked kitchen. I thought it was a great value for the price.

The property had plenty of room, with a great layout for being able to visit while preparing food.Everything was clean and comfortable.Great to have a garage for the bikes and to have laundry on site for washing our cycling gear.The kitchen was pretty well stocked and nice to have the barbeque on deck as well.
We hope to return and would recommend it to friends.Nice to be away from the village noise, but still close enough to walk to.

Definetely will go back if this unit is available. We were looking for a comfortable and value priced unit not too far from the ski areas, but in a quiet area. Owner is very accomodating and provided clear communications. Small living room and kitchen but perfectly functional and nicely decorated cozy unit. Kitchen and linens were clean and well stocked. Garage is little narrow to get a full size car in without getting boxed in. We parked our Subaru in the nearby guest parking area. Tv channels were little too slow changing, not sure if this is a problem with the service or the equipment. Overall these were minor inconveniences, we were happy with our stay. We could plug our iPod to the sound system. Internet connectivity was very good. If one can find their way around Blackcomb you can ski down to the unit under good snow conditions. We enjoyed the quietness. Beds were very comfortable. Nice bathrooms. Good find!

We stayed at Forest Trails over the Victoria Day weekend. It is our third stay at this property, having been there over a previous Spring long weekend and also over the Christmas festive season.
We keep returning to Lorne and Dianne's condo, because, to be honest, it can't be beat. Spotlessly clean with every possible amenity, it is truly a home away from home.The location is ideal; within easy walking distance to the village and the ski base.
Our family have made wonderful memories at Forest Trails and we would love to return again at some future date.

Great place to stay - quiet end unit, both bedrooms on top floor. Nice 3 story layout with a garage so your car doesn't need scraping in the morning and you have a safe place to store all of your skis. Warm 'mud-room' next to the garage entrance to store and dry all the ski gear overnight. Cozy living-room with gas fireplace, unpretentious furniture, fully functional kitchen (we ate all of our meals in house and saved tons of money). Close enough to the lifts to walk to the hill or the village, or there is a bus stop (free transit) right outside. Right near Lost Lake for x-country ski trails. Owners are really organized with instructions and directions to the unit. We had no problems at all.

We had a wonderful stay at Forest Trails over New Years. It is a wonderful location, convenient to everything but still nice and quiet. The condo itself was in great condition and very comfortable. Hope to come back soon!
comfy beds and great location

we had a terrific time at whistler during xmas. There were 6 of us and everyone had a very good night sleep on the beds. The sheets were really comfortable! The cabin is small and cozy and the flat screen tv was a definite plus. The cabin is near the shuttles, about 5 mins to blackcomb and 9-10 mins to whistler village. Easy to find!

We truly enjoyed our stay and were very impressed with the townhome. The riding distance to the bike park or over to the Whistler Village was not bad at all on a paved path, and it was very convenient to have a garage to store our bikes in securely. The condo does have a lot of stairs to get up to the bedrooms, not that it was a big deal for us, but could be for some people. But the beds were very comfortable, everything worked great, and there was a nice TV with cable, and excellent wireless internet, which was good to have as well.

Great place, the garage is definitely a bonus. Great comfy place, great furniture, great TV, very well stocked kitchen. It's been a family tradition to spend a weekend in Whistler during the summer for at least 15 years. Most places we stayed at are very nice, but this place is special because, and this might be hard to explain, the owners leave the guests with a strong impression that they are trusted. To make a place home for a few days, to me that is a very important element.

We had a great stay at your townhouse. Everything was very convenient. From booking the unit to getting confirmation, to getting access to the unit. Neighbors were friendly too. Plenty of room for family of 5 and a friend. The amenities are convenient as well. We hope to be able to book the unit for future visits.

This was our first trip to Whistler. We came for mountain biking and golf. The townhouse was great. The kitchen has everything you need, the bbq was awesome. The beds were great the airconditioning made it so comfortable, as it was quite hot while we were there. Having 2 full bathrooms was awesome. Laundry in the unit was great! Having the garage for storing all the sports equipment was a huge bonus. I could go on and on but will sum it up that it was one if not our best family vacation!! We had a great time and will definately be back, staying in your townhouse was almost like being at home!
