Overview

Silver Star Mountain Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Multi-family, large group, amazing chalet (5 Bedrooms, Bunkroom, 6 Bathrooms)

If you are looking for a ski vacation for multiple families, a work retreat, wedding, ski teams, or bringing many friends together, you've found the perfect chalet. The 'Great Escape' is situated at the very top of the Silver Queen chairlift in the area referred to locally as 'The Knoll'. We purchased this house 13 years ago due to its perfect location for all levels and ages of skiers, proximity to skating, tubing, and easy access to cross country ski trails. It is the perfect winter holiday location. There is no driving or even walking involved to ski in or out from this chalet (see photos).

The 4300 sq ft chalet is 3 levels. The upper level is comprised of a kitchen, dining area, hot tub, sauna, steam shower, bathroom, ski locker, boot room, and two living rooms. The large harvest dining table can sit 18. The mid-floor has 4 bedrooms each with private bathroom, bath and shower. One room with a Queen bed, one room with a double bed, one room with two sets of bunk beds, and one room with a double bed with a bunk above it and a bunk. The bottom floor has one room with two double beds and an open basement with two bunk beds, There is room for 21 people in beds in the house. In addition there are four hide-a-bed couches, two in the basement, two in the upper floor living rooms for a total maximum sleeping capacity of 29.

About Scott Wallace

This chalet is owned by a family that believes skiing is an activity that brings family and friends together. We have been skiing at Silver Star on and off for 35 years and consistently for the last 17. Family gatherings usually involve a minimum of 16 people and four families.

Scott Wallace purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Scott Wallace chose Silver Star Mountain

After renting at Silver Star for several years, we bought this place thirteen years ago as we thought it was best located and designed chalet on the mountain for multiple families or large groups. Every guest that visits is astounded by the perfection of this place to enable a true winter vacation. Once you are here, you don't need your car again until you leave.

What makes this chalet unique

The best feature is that there is something for everyone within seconds from the door. If you are a beginner skier, you are 5 seconds from the top of the run, if you are a young family, you can easily switch off parenting obligations, you can cross country ski from the door, downhill ski, snowshoe or skate, or go tubing all within minutes from the chalet.

Best place on the Hill.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your place. What I loved with it is that the house had to everything. Ski in ski out, Sauna, Hot tub, steam shower. I loved that it was so spacious. We loved our week there with family and athletes. We rented the house because of the Canadian Junior Nationals. Its an excellent house for a big group of people either its a girls getaway, Ski team or even for a family vacation. We will for sure come back and rent it again. :)

The Great Escape home Silver Star Mountain British Columbia

  • 4 of 5

Our 7th time to Silver Star and our second time in this vacation home. Silver Star Mountain has many fantastic homes available for vacation rental but The Great Escape is one of the best if position and size are important. At the top of the Queen chair it ideally suits beginners whilst still allowing easy ski in/out access for those wanting to head off to other parts of the mountain. The home is large enough for a big group (we had 14) and is great for socializing after the day on the mountain. Highly recommend The Great Escape and we are already looking forward to our

next time here.

Large Family from Australia

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Great Escape house, and both times we have loved every minute. The proximity to the top of the Silver Queen chair lift is awesome - our beginners had no trouble at all. The house is perfect for large groups as there are 3 separate lounge areas, an enormous dining table that we could all fit around, and the huge advantage that each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The house is very well equipped, and we certainly felt at home. Scott (the owner) was so friendly and welcoming, and did all that he could to make our stay enjoyable. The only downfall was that we had to leave at the end of our vacation!!!

45th Nursing Class Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had 26 classmates together for our 45th reunion at Silver Star. Great Escape was the perfect place to "Return to Residence" so we could relive our time from 1966 to 1969 when we all lived together. The house was PERFECT. The top floor was a super gathering place as there was ample room for all of us. We were able to walk down to the Pinheads bowling alley for a fun afternoon of bowling and some of us hiked to the summit for beautiful views of the area. The weather even cooperated. Thank you again Scott for being such a great person to deal with - very prompt to answer any questions I had.

Family Reunion - Summer

  • 5 of 5

We were having trouble finding a location for a family reunion with 7 adults and 7 children between the ages of 2 and 11. I happily found this spot we were not disappointed. The children kept busy searching for bugs, climbing hills and even tracking a "Sasquatch". It was a great home base for day trips throughout the area. The house was large and roomy enough for everyone to spread out and do their own thing. Family meals were not a problem with the large eating area. Please do not overlook this gem.

We are looking forward to an opportunity to return to take advantage of all the adventures that winter offers on the mountain.

Great girl's weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here! There was more than enough space for all of us. The bedrooms were on a separate level from the living space so it was easy to have privacy if you needed it. The extra long dining table meant we ate every meal together. All the spaces were large enough that we didn't have to split into smaller groups. We walked to the village area no problem on the night we went to the local bar and the yoga instructor at the resort is fantastic and did a private group class for us. Highly recommend this place for a relaxing and fun secluded getaway.
