Bear Tracks Whistler Chalet
Ranked #2 of 10 Whistler B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 September 2016

We planned our trip 9 months ahead, and of the accommodation we'd booked, Bear Tracks wasn't looking like it would be a favourite. How wrong you can be! The hosts were very welcoming, and it felt like home. Communal tea and coffee making facilities, a communal fridge, and comfortable shared areas gave it a unique and friendly feel. The short walk into Whistler was no problem, and there was good parking on site. Overall, great value and very comfortable. Firmly recommended!

Room Tip: It's all good!

nice, clean B&B with outdoor hot tub under a gazebo. It's a great place to unwind after a days riding or boarding.
The reason I say it's great for an MTB base is because the double garage is a safe place to store bikes but also has a selection of tools to either repair your bike or just to assemble it when you get it out of the bike bag. Ski boot room is a great place to dry out riding gear, protective gear etc. Chalet location is right by the Lost Lake trails which are a great introduction as to what to expect from Whistler trails. The hosts also mountain bike A LOT so you can pick their brains on which trails (all mountain or bike park) suit your abilities given what you did or didn't ride (chickened out) in Lost Lake..
5 min cycle or 15min stroll (along a dedicated non-motorised track) to the Whistler gondola, pubs and eateries. Lower whistler village is closer for food and drink Or the Chalet has a bbq that can be used on nights when you don't want to eat out and they let you use a fridge to store some food, drinks. It also has a small TV lounge.

If you have some extra $ they can also arrange a float plane trip to a remote lake, which you then mtb 40km back to another lake to meet the plane to take you back to Whistler - it's just stunning. They can also book scenic float plane trips of the glaciers if you fancy a day off the bike.

Breakfast was a good feast and changed daily.

Rooms were clean and well looked after. Rooms vary in size so read before you book but we were happy we got what we wanted.

Aside from the chalet the biking really is amazing. The variety of natural trails, from easy to Mad along with the chance of chairlift days in the bike park makes it a biking mecca.

We are a couple in our 60s and were taking a two-week trip from Calgary to Vancouver and back. Whistler was one of our overnight stops.

The place was just what we wanted for one night. It was clean and welcoming. As the name suggests, it is based on a chalet-style building. If you like wood you will like this place.

The room was on the ground floor and good but very small. The bed was very comfy. We got a good night's sleep. Coffee-making facilities were provided on the 2nd floor so we were unable to make ourselves a drink either before bed or when we woke up unless we trooped upstairs. The plus point was that we had fresh milk instead of the small long-life cartons or the awful powdered milk.

The couple who run Bear Tracks are from the UK and both are into motorsport, particularly rally driving. Both have been in high-profile rally teams. This was another plus point with me as I was involved in motor sport for over ten years in the 1990s so we got on very well.

There was fresh fruit and cereal on offer for breakfast and we were treated to eggs benedict as well.

We would stay at this hotel again and recommend it to others. Whistler main town is a pleasnat ten minute walk away.

Hi Delboy,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

We do have a detailed descriptions of each room including dimensions, wardrobe and storage space including photographs of the room and bathrooms to let travellers know exactly what they are paying for and what to expect on arrival.

Rooms range from cheaper and smaller, more "budget' rooms to larger and more spacious but more expensive rooms with seating areas and balconies.

We do hope you would consider Bear Tracks Chalet if you return to Whistler again.

Best wishes
Martin

Stayed here a few nights, was unsure about the location to begin with as its a little in behind town - and just a little you can follow a paved path for about five minutes and your town. The location turned out to be excellent in terms of hiking and biking trails and frankly town is so busy it was so nice to stay somewhere quiet with other lovely guests.
Claire and Martin make you a feast for breakfast and they also do some washing for you - bliss !
You can hire mountain bikes really close by and they are so knowledgable about the area and what to get up to. Enjoy !

I stayed at the Bear Tracks Whistler Chalet on an overnight trip to Whistler, and wished I could have stayed longer. Martin and Clare - the owners - were there in person to check me in, and were very gracious hosts.

By special arrangement, Martin took me on a guided mountain bike ride for three hours. It was a fantastic way to see the mountains and the town. My understanding is that guided bike rides are a service easily booked, and I highly recommend it if you're in Whistler during bike season.

I stayed on the main floor of the chalet, adjacent to the hot tub, which made for a great way to relax post-bike ride.

My room for the night had a king bed that whisked me off to dreamland in no time at all, and the ensuite bathroom was clean and very comfortable, with a strong and hot shower.

Breakfast in the morning was Eggs Benedict, as well as an assortment of cereals and fruits.

Whenever I'm in Whistler, I'll be booking into this place. It was an excellent place and very close to the fun of the village while being on a quiet street when sleep time rolls around!
