Vernon Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 bdrm, 2 baths with fantastic views. Sleeps 10

Great family or multi family vacation home which sleeps 10 comfortably. Two livingrooms, both with flat screens and PVRs provide opportunity for adults and kids to have their own space.

The kitchen is well equipped with a variety of pots, pans, casserole and serving dishes. A coffee grinder and programmable coffee maker makes sure that you have some good java before heading to the slopes.

All the beds are comfortable and in great condition including the 2 sofa beds which have high end mattresses.

Enjoy the elevated views of the mountains and the Silver Queen recreation area. You really feel that you are experiencing a winter playground.

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 Okanagan Valley

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.

Came up with a large group. Place was beautiful, clean, and not too far from where we were going. I'd recommend this place to anyone going to Silverstar or Vernon! Perfect long weekend!!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great house for skiers! Sleeping spaces are excellent for a large group of adults, as there are real beds, as opposed to bunks, in every room. Beds are very comfortable, as are public spaces. As noted elsewhere, kitchen is very well equipped, with blender, griddle, and many good quality pots, pans, and baking dishes. Rick was prompt and friendly in responding to my enquiries, and we didn't require any assistance once we were there. Would stay here again!

Edmonton area

Above expectation

  • 5 of 5

Wow, very nice property! We were on a family (daddy & daughter) motorcycle trip to Vernon and Kelowna from Edmonton area. Dealing with Rick was exceptional! The home was spotless and well looked after. Beds were very clean and comfortable. Good access, so don't be worried about the hill into the driveway area.....The road up from Vernon is amazing and it is 7-10degrees cooler up here than in town! (Plus 35 celsius today) good access to everything and the village is very unique.

Excellent place to rest and relax during our early season xc-ski camp

  • 5 of 5

Five of us attending an early season cross-country ski camp organized by the University of Calgary Outdoor Centre shared the evening sunset for three nights.. It was perfect for us and we could have happily shared with a couple more people. On Saturday we had the rest of the camp attendees and coaches join us for a pot luck dinner...there was chairs, tables, dishes and most importantly wine glasses for all twelve of us.

As an early riser I appreciated that I could go down to the kitchen and living area and have a coffee and read without disturbing the others.

The views from the living area are superb, the hot tub was so awesome after skiing, everything we needed was available...the only thing that would have made our five star stay better would have been for the temperatures to have not dropped so low.

I look forward to return visits...hopefully one year soon I can make a family trip work...would love to bring the grandkids here! Thanks for the opportunity to use your vacation property!!

Great base for a group ski trip

  • 5 of 5

I have kept coming back to Rick and Coreen's chalet too many times to count over the years, travelling with a group of various friends into XC skiing from Vancouver. Why? Because it has everything you need, it's in an ideal location (ski in, ski out, and a short walk to the village), and it has a great outlook over the Silver Queen hill. It is not the fanciest house in Silver Star, but it's extremely practical and comfortable for staying with a group of family or friends, enjoying the hot tub, sharing meals in the kitchen, and getting out to ski.
