About Rick and Coreen Smith

We are both teachers with 3 grown children and have enjoyed Vernon and the surrounding area since 1992. We love the opportunity to enjoy all that Silver Star Mountain has to offer. There is nothing like skiing, skating or snowshoeing in the winter and biking and hiking in the summer and it's just a few steps away.

Rick and Coreen Smith purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Rick and Coreen Smith chose Vernon

Vernon and the surrounding area is a recreation mecca. Silver Star provides adventure in both summer and winter and one can enjoy the lakes, golf, and wine touring in the summertime.

What makes this chalet unique

Our chalet is perfect for a couple of families or a group of friends to spend their vacation. The 8 bed configuration (2 qn,1dbl, 3sgl, 1qn sofa,1dbl sofa )offers a variety of sleeping arrangements.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Location is great --we went with our family including small kids. Easy ski in and ski out and access to the village (10 min walk). House is well equipped and includes a ski room to hold all the wet skis and boots which is extremely handy. Rick is easy to work with and everything went smoothly!

Great Team Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our XC ski team was in Silverstar for a week of training ending with the races at Sovereign. We rented two houses on Spencer lane. The 6 beds provided ample space for the 4 athletes and two coaches that stayed. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs and there was enough space that the athletes could have space for homework on their down time. The covered car port was convenient for ski storage and the equipment room was very useful for drying boots and gear. We've rented on the knoll in the past but we really enjoyed the location on the mountain side this time. Rick was a pleasure to deal with.

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Finally had a chance to book our own cabin and have our kids and the grandchildren up at the chalet. What a fantastic family weekend up at the Star. The dump of fresh powder was an added bonus!

Great Family Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Good location for ski in/out, a little walk into the pleasant unique ski village. Lovely ski area, with some challenging double diamond runs to keep the best skiers entertained, although it could do with upgrading and linking up the ski lifts.

Excellent owner customer service, was able to chat to owners easily via email which was great as we came from England. They were really friendly and welcoming.

Chalet as described, clean, well maintained with lovely hot tub. Good undercover parking and areas for skis and boots. Great view from the living room windows.

We had a lovely few days in Silver Star, bring your food up as the market was very expensive, but we had been warned by owners and shopped in Kelowna.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Nice property with lots of room. Out back door and onto a run to a lift. You're located walking distance to village or ice rink. Covered Parking spot is bonus. Beautiful views from kitchen/living room windows. Hot tub was clean and functioned well. Wifi is fast enough to stream Netflix (bring a Chromecast). Satellite has a great selection of channels including Sportsnet.

Laundry machine is big, works well. Beds comfortable, house warm, no complaints.

Cons: kitchen is beginning to show its age. Not dirty, just outdated. Could also use more pots and some better steak knives. Dishwasher could also be updated.

These aren't complaints, just full disclosure.

Rick was very quick responding to my emails. Informed me of particulars, directions, shopping etc...

We had a great time staying there and would love to return someday.
