If you’re coming to Whistler for rest and serenity, the neighbourhood of Blueberry Hill in Whistler is the ultimate destination. Close enough to it all, but quietly tucked away from the Main Village. We love this area, and we know you will too! We’ve created the ultimate guide for you to ensure you make the most of every second of your Blueberry retreat.
Blueberry Hill is located on the west side of Highway 99, in between Whistler and Creekside Villages. Either Village is just a quick, 2-4 minute drive away. Blueberry is a quiet neighbourhood located in the Valley of Whistler, with epic scenery at every turn. It has stunning views of Whistler, Blackcomb and Sprout Mountains, and beyond. It also happens to have the Whistler Golf Club Course surrounding the east side, and Alta Lake on the west side of the neighbourhood. It’s no wonder the word “prestigious” is used time and again to describe Blueberry Hill.
We can’t help but love the prestigious Ironwood Resort as our favourite Blueberry accommodation. Our condos in Ironwood offer some of the most spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and valley from the outdoor heated pool and hot tub. You’ll feel as if you stepped into an oasis designed to set your mind at ease, toss your to-do list to the wind, and melt into the peaceful, natural surroundings. Ironwood is truly a home-away-from-home, offering one and two-bedroom condos with fully equipped kitchens. Whether you’ve had a long day of play or just want to continue your day of rest, curling up in front of the condo’s fireplace is the ultimate way to unwind at the day’s end. Some of our units have extra amenities like private hot tubs and BBQs, so be sure to ask! Regardless of which unit you pick, you’ll enjoy on-site parking at Ironwood, taking the stress out of logistics.
If you haven’t guessed it already, one of our favourite reasons for staying in Blueberry Hill is the peace and solitude it offers. You’ll feel miles away from everything but have a world-class resort at your fingertips. If you fancy golf, you’re literally at the doorstep of the famous Whistler Golf Club. This award-winning golf course is open from May to October 8th, and you won’t want to miss teeing off surrounded by an old-growth forest and spectacular mountain vistas. If you prefer spending time on the water, Alta Lake is just a short stroll away. Here, you can take advantage of swimming, sailing, kayaking, or stand-up paddleboarding. In the winter months, you’ll be able to come home to pure relaxation after a busy day on the ski hill and soak in the outdoor heated pool or hot tub. Sound dreamy? It is!
As we mentioned, getting to Whistler and Creekside Villages is a breeze from Ironwood in Blueberry. Whistler Village is just a 2-minute drive away, and Creekside is only 3-4 minutes away. If you’d prefer to walk, bike, or cross country ski to the Village, Blueberry is conveniently located near the Valley Trail. This wonderful, paved trail network extends the length of Whistler, allowing you to see the Valley from a new perspective. If you’re staying in Ironwood, there’s underground bike storage for those who prefer to travel by bike. To plan your commute, view the winter and summer trail maps here. If you’d prefer to take public transportation and leave the car parked, you can hop on the Whistler Transit Service for a nominal fee. The bus will easily take you to the Whistler Gondola, eliminating the need to pay or hassle with parking. You can find the bus schedule here. Need your car?
