"The beautifully simple dining room overlooks Green Lake.
Birds flitter by the window. The menu has several Northwest coast items to select from. My husband
had the venison and I had chicken from the Cowichan. Both were uniquely prepared and very tasty.
Wine selection is nice and has several local Okanagan choices. Save room for exceptional

"Wow!!! The Edgewater Lodge far exceeded our
expectations! You never know when you can trust the photos and info on a website, however we were
way more impressed than we were disappointed! Are thinking of having a 20th anniversary party here
in 2 years from now.
REALLY looking forward to it! Best dinner EVER! Thank to all of you! See you next time!"

"Thanks so much for the great hospitality! We had a good stay, and
thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub in the snow. Will be back for sure!"

"We had such an amazing time at your lodge. We didn't know what to
expect having never been up to Whistler and I was a little taken aback after seeing all the huge condos and
hotels. Way out of my comfort zone. Then we drove up to your lodge that was tucked back by the lake and we
felt an immediate calm. The food was AMAZING and we loved the breakfast. Nice change from the usual fair
of rubber eggs and greasy sausage. We're planning for a family getaway for the summer at your place! Thanks again."
- Kristi and Thomas Neeleman, Arlington, WA (21-23 March 2012)
"What an AWE inspiring spot. Thank you for your amazing hospitality, food, surroundings & staff. We will be back!"

"Spectacular, Serene, Splendid Staff. So glad we made our
way back to the Edgewater!
Delicious dinner & weather was incredible."
- Diane & Jerry (Sept 2011)
"What a find! Thanks so much for the wonderful views. It
made our stay
transition from one to two nights. Best dinner of our whole trip!"

"Finally getting around to dropping you a note to tell you all what a great time we had at our daughter's
wedding at the Edgewater Lodge in June. All of our guests had a fabulous time thanks to your great crew
who took such good care of us during the weekend. The food was amazing and exceeded all expectations.
As a matter of fact the whole weekend was over the top. We really appreciate your flexibility at the last
minute - moving the ceremony quickly inside due to rain, it worked out perfectly. Luckily the early part
of that day was beautiful and sunny so all of us visiting the Whistler area got to see it at it's best.
The Adventure Center rehearsal BBQ worked out great. The place was in tip top condition with the lawn all
trimmed and the sun was out for that too... that is until that big thunderstorm moved across the lake and
forced us all under the covered fire pit (nice!). The folks who rent the kayaks were very accommodating
and many of us had the chance to take a spin on the lake before that exciting storm hit.
The property there at Edgewater is a really special place and we will have sweet memories of the wedding
weekend there for years to come. I would highly recommend your place as a perfect wedding spot!"
- Appreciatively, Anne & Rob Sears
"My husband Dave and I got married at the Edgewater on September 6, 2008.
We had the most amazing time and have wonderful memories of our wedding weekend at the Edgewater thanks to the
overwhelming beauty of the lodge and surrounding area, and the tremendous service you provided us in the months
leading up to our wedding and on the actual day. Our guests were blown away by the scenery and still to this day
our family and friends are talking about how beautiful our wedding was. We look forward to visiting the lodge
every summer when we return to Whistler from Victoria for our annual summer family vacation."

"The Edgewater Lodge Restaurant is always a must on
each of our trips to Whistler from Chicago. The food, service and views are the best."
- Margaret Mickey
"My husband Paul and I were married at the Edgewater Lodge
April 11th 2008, after being together for 21 years ;-)! We couldn't have chosen a more special place
to be married. Amazing views, an intimate dining room and THE very best chocolate cake any of us have
ever tasted! We returned last April for our wedding anniversary and enjoyed another gourmet meal. The
Edgewater Lodge will always have a special place in our hearts. We never imagined, as we admired the
Lodge from across the other side of Green Lake by the float planes, in 2006, that we would end up being
married there (we were never going to get married, but Whistler worked its magic!). Since our wedding day
we have become residents of BC, living outside of Vancouver, so now we enjoy Whistler all year round! Thanks
for the memories Edgewater! We look forward to seeing your makeover and trying out the new Activity Centre."

"Teetering on the edge of Green Lake, each room here makes the most of some
awesome water and mountain views through its large picture windows. The restaurant
is among the best in the Whistler area, and there's kayaking in the summer or ice-skating
when the lake freezes up. It's worth the short drive north of Whistler to the shores of Green Lake and the 12-room
Edgewater Lodge, a fantastic retreat for those who like to be close to nature without
sacrificing comfort and great dining. Each rustically-cozy one-bedroom suite overlooks
the glassy water and looming mountains and it's common to sit in your padded window
alcove to watch the ospreys (this is a birder's paradise) and some occasional wandering bears -
you'll find yourself sighing contentedly every few minutes. There's also an outdoor hot tub
on the shore if you want to nature-watch in style. Peel yourself away for breakfast (included)
in the magnificent glass and beam dining room, or plan to be here for a tasty Pacific Northwest
dinner. You can cross-country ski or ice-skate here in winter and kayaking and canoeing will
keep you occupied in summer."
- John Lee, Lonely Planet, 2008
"Whistler Valley holds a secret most visitors
never glimpse: It is magical and magnetic not because of anything manmade, but because of
the sheer enormity and beauty of the basin's natural mountain landscape. At the uncomplicated
Edgewater Lodge, two miles from the congested bustle of Whistler Village, this is a secret
impossible to overlook. The 12-room inn and restaurant perch on a serenely quiet, 45-acre
peninsula of land that extends into glacial-fed Green Lake. "The view is like the horn
of plenty,".......The single-story, prow-shaped, shorefront lodge opened for business
in March 1995. The rooms (either a single room or a bedroom with den and deck) are comfortable
but basic—until you climb into bed. From there, every guest can see the long alpenglow on
Whistler and Blackcomb, the lights of snowcats tracing the runs at night, moonlight on the
water and an occasional train passing on the far shore." The centerpiece of the hotel
is its lakeside dining room, with high vaulted ceilings, walls of glass and a dazzling menu."
- Susan Reifer, Ski Magazine
"The Edgewater, a 12-room lodge that fronts Green Lake is only a ten minute bike ride
North of Whistler Village, but feels much more remote."
- Avenues Magazine
"From your room or breakfast terrace you can watch Mergansers diving, floatplanes
taking off, and paddlers returning from the River of Golden Dreams."
- Outside Magazine
"The most special place I have ever been... all in all - heaven on earth!"
- David Pearce
"Absolutely Whistler's finest best kept secret"
"Arguably the best in Whistler"
- Bob Howells, Avenues Magazine/Outside Magazine
"We loved our time at the Edgewater."
- David Butwin, Gourmet Magazine
"One of the area's 'best kept secrets', this 'down to earth'
lakefront establishment eschews hype and delivers nothing but 'excellent' service, 'imaginative', 'wonderful',
continental dishes ('the venison is to die for'), and 'gorgeous views' of the mountains from the 'prettiest location
on the water'. P.S. this 'romantic' destination is also No. 1 for Service and Decor in the Whistler Survey"
- Zagat's Restaurant Survey, New York
"There's 'the scene' and then there's 'the scenery'...
an entire world away."

The Great Canadian Food Show - Episode 64 - "Apre Ski", 2003 was shot at The Edgewater.
"The Edgewater - A mere three kilometers from Whistler Village.
The Edgewater sits on 45 acres of private land along the shores of Green Lake. Simple, European-style woodworking
crafted from lumber cut on the property sets the tone for what Manager Jay Symons likes to refer as "no frills"
(That, of course, is a matter of interpretation.)"
Linda Hayes, Inside Houston
"Clearly, careful attention was paid to the views. Each of the 12 guest rooms offers its own panoramic look at the lake. Should the ride to Whistler seem just too far, or the idea of Alpine skiing too daunting, consider the options available just outside your door. Cross-country skiing on the extensive valley trail system. Ice skating at the nearby Meadow Park Sports Centre. Or simply strolling by the lake."
"We should have spent the entire 8 days of our trip to Canada at the Edgewater! We enjoyed the scenery which
is spectacular, and, moreover, we really enjoyed the staff. By the way, your food was the best we had in Canada!"
- Kalia and Jim Webster, Laguna Niguel, California
"The meal was splendid. We loved it all. Yum! The moonrise over the mountains, the warm atmosphere, we will
remember it. Thank you!"
- The Moyers, Washington, D.C.
"The best view, best food, quietest area, best value, hottest hot tub, genuine staff.... Thanks for some
relief from the madness of town! "
