ABOUT GREYSTONE LODGE
Greystone Lodge is located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain next to the Wizard Express and Magic Chair lifts. A boutique style condo complex with only 50 units makes Greystone Lodge one of the smaller vacation rental locations in the Benchlands neighbourhood in Whistler. Large open living spaces are unique to Greystone Lodge creating a true home away from home. The fourty foot windows of the lofted units gives Greystone Lodge its stunning appearance for passer’s by and great mountain views for the guests that occupy them.
GREYSTONE LODGE AMENITIES

There is a coin operated laundry facility in the building as well as a vending machine for quick snacks.

The walk to the main Whistler Village will take around 7-10 minutes on foot, however, a village transit bus comes every 7 minutes in the Winter and every 15 minutes during the other months. The bus stop is just a short stroll from the lobby.
Golfers can enjoy the Chateau Whistler Golf Course, one of the finest golf courses in British Columbia, just a short walk from the lodge. Spas are located throughout Whistler Resort for those looking for extra help in relaxing. Lost Lake Park is located only minutes from the Greystone Lodge where guests will find great hiking, picnicking, swimming and fishing in the summer months and Nordic ski trails in the winter. The base of Blackcomb turns into a children’s paradise in the summer when it is converted into a giant playground hosting horseback riding, a climbing wall, various rides and amusements, mini-golf, and more.

“Great Spring Trip - April 2012”

Had a wonderful stay with family at the Greystone in April 2012. Clint from Acer was extraordinarily helpful/accommodating and promptly responded to all queries.
The unit was very nice, clean, extremely spacious and well furnished. More than enough space for our party of five (3 Adults and 2 Kids - 8 & 5). Not luxury accomodations, but thought great value relative to other options we looked at. Kitchen was a little less well equipped than other units we have rented (i.e. no spices, cooking basics, etc. beyond salt and pepper).
The common areas were not in quite as nice of condition as the unit, but were generally fine. Ski-in/ski-out required a short walk/ski to slope, but was easily handled by our kids.
Only concern we had was that the 5 min walk to the Upper Village was literally down/up the ski slope. Seemed like very poor design on the part of the resort (there were other bldgs even further up slope), as other alternatives were a long, long walk down the road or bus (stop was very convenient). The walk up was a challenge, particularly for our kids or if you were carrying any gear.
Glad you enjoyed your trip! See you next time. - Clint Goyette

Family friendly accomodation. Convenient access to Wizard lift. Walls are a bit thin so you can hear neighbours getting ready above you in the morning. Management was excellent. I would prefer to have washing facilities in the room than use a downstairs laundromat.
Thank you for the excellent feedback. Unfortunately the building infrastructure does not allow for installation of laundry in most units. That is why there are 3 washers and 6 commercial driers on level one. We do look forward to your return visit! All the best to you and your family - Clint Goyette

The only draw back was the rental unit did not have air conditioning.
