The Edgewater Family
Yep. We're not the typical Whistler staff out here on the peninsula. We stick around. But if you've seen it down here, you'd understand why. It's our own little world & we love it, & you get to be part of the Edgewater family when you stay or dine with us.
The driveway is only 800 metres long but somehow we have a total disconnect from the real world down here and we aren't complaining!
Here's how it all started: Randy Symons bought and held on to the property for 30 years before deciding to build on the peninsula. Randy built the Lodge in 1994 with the help of his wife Yvonne & his son Jay and the Edgewater continues to be owned and operated by the Symons Family.
Lee & Kam started here not long after the Lodge was built and are still here to this day - over 15 years and counting! They are true locals who have been elemental in creating the Edgewater spirit which in a nutshell can be described as welcoming and down to earth.
Our Chef, Patrick started with us in December 2011. He has surpassed expectations with his cuisine and we can attribute several diners choice awards to the culinary expertise of Pat and his superb sous chefs, Adam & Jeremy. We can safely say that the food here is as fantastic as the view!
Jan & Eliska are the "housekeeping department" in charge of keeping the Edgewater in tip top shape and boy do they do a great job, working tirelessly to make sure the rooms are clean & cozy.
Bethany & Mel are the friendly Innkeepers who take care of the Front Desk, the B&B, social media (many photos you see on our facebook and website are done by these ladies) and any other random tasks that need to get done. They are "Jills of All Trades" that welcome you to the B&B, serve you breakfast, recommend things to do in Whistler, and so on and so forth :)
So, our tiny team works like this: Beth & Mel share the B&B duties, Kam is our Wedding Coordinator Extraordinaire, Lee manages the Restaurant, Patrick, Adam, & Jeremy cook all the food, Jan & Eliska clean the rooms & Jay does everything else, including keeping a watchful eye on the place and signing the paycheques!
We look forward to welcoming you to the Edgewater soon!
