If you’re interested in checking out another luxury chalet experience, this post is for you. In terms of expensive stays, this pick just might top the list in BC – but who says we can’t dream a little? Say hello to the ultimate Whistler getaway: The Belmont Estate.
Ironically sharing the name of one of Vancouver’s most expensive properties, the Belmont Estate in Whistler represents the ultimate luxury skiing experience. The gated, 7 acre property is not actually located on the mountain, instead, it sits on the other side of Alta Lake.
Now you might be thinking “Hold up, one of Whistler’s most expensive rentals isn’t even on the mountain?” We were surprised too – that is, before we realized that the driveway is big enough to accommodate a helicopter for heli-skiing during your visit. Yeah, forget a private chairlift, we’re hopping in the chopper.
Of course, helicopter parking is just one part of a suite of amenities that make the Belmont Estate such a high-class destination. Across both the main house and the guest house (of course), you’ve got some 8,100 sq. ft. of pure luxury to enjoy.
On the functional side, you’ve got 7 bedrooms across both houses, capable of sleeping up to 14 guests at a time. Meanwhile, there’s a massive, gourmet kitchen to cook up a storm in, just in case you get the munchies after your personal chef has gone home for the day.
But, this incredible Whistler chalet wouldn’t be complete with all the apres ski options you can think of. There are not one but two games rooms, an in-home theatre, and a full spa-like area for working out, hopping in the sauna and grabbing a massage.
Finally, the chalet features some outdoor amenities that can be enjoyed year-round. Sure, there’s a 12-person hot tub kicking around, but there’s also a full-sized heated outdoor pool to get a couple of laps in before you hit the slopes, and an outdoor fireplace for some fireside drinks before dinner.
So, while this is probably one of the most incredible rentals we’ve ever covered, it also comes with a hefty price tag of $9,500+/night. But hey, in case we win the lottery, this one’s staying on our radar.
If you’re ready to shell out the big bucks, you can take a look at the property’s availability for December & January here.
