About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Purple Palace is truly a ski in and out home. Sitting next to the ski bridge, you are connected to all pathways of the ski hill. Walk out your front door, pop on your skiis/boards and go. Purple Palace sits next to the main ski bridge and is steps from the new Alpine Meadows ski lift.

The home offers spectacular views from every room. Leather furnishings by a fireside offers relaxation after a day of activities on or off the mountain. The roof top hot tub provides panoramic views of the area and the star-studded sky at night. It is a wonderful way to unwind.

Just across the road is Tube Town, Brewers Pond and the Snowmobile tours. The Silver Star village is a short walk, where you will find restaurants, shopping and more. Horse-drawn sleighs are available for a ride around the area.

Summertime offers many wonderful mountain activities, like mountain biking and hiking. Lake Okanagan and Lake Kalamaka are only 20 minutes down the hill, right in Vernon. In nearby Armstrong is the wonderful outdoor Caravan Farm Theater. It is a lovely evening adventure.

If you have a larger party then the upper unit can accommodate, call us for more options.

About Deb Walkemeyer

We built Purple Palace in 1995 as a vacation rental home. We have rented it for 20 years and have enjoyed the home many times ourselves. Traveling is one thing we love to do and enjoy staying in other vacation rental properties. It is important that our home is comfortable and fun while you holiday at Silver Star Mountain Resort.

Why Deb Walkemeyer chose Thompson Okanagan

Purple Palace has been a vacation rental property for 20 years, with a solid record of providing a comfortable place to stay on the mountain. We truly are ski in & out, making travel to and from the house easy after a full day of skiing/boarding. Purple Palace has a rooftop hot tub with views of the hill as you soak your muscles after a full day.

Right across the road is Tube Town and with more fun activities or take an evening sleigh ride with the family. Silver Star will not disappoint and Purple Palace is a favorite place to stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Deb,

Thank-you for the extraordinary customer service. From out first telephone conversation and throughout our stay at the Purple Palace, you and your team were a pleasure to deal with. Very professional and extremely kind (and efficient) in addressing all of our concerns, wants and needs.

We had sooo much fun at the Purple Palace! The kids loved the built-in bunk beds and we enjoyed the fun and funky décor throughout the condo. The kitchen was fully stocked - anything we forgot, you seemed to anticipate - every small appliance was available - even us green smoothie drinkers needn't have worried - blender was to hand in the kitchen.

Besides the condo being a warm and welcoming place, the entire Silver Star resort was picturesque. We really enjoyed going for early morning walks to the village and getting a cup of fresh Italian coffee at the Bugaboo Café! We will be back!

Thanks again for looking after us after such a disastrous start to our vacation. Your willingness to accommodate us on such short notice was a real blessing.

Thank-you one again! We will be recommending the Purple Palace to all our friends and family.


Mrs. J.K.

A Fantastic Summer Stay on Silver Star Mountain

  • 5 of 5

A couple of weeks ago, our family had the wonderful fortune of booking and then staying at the Purple Palace on Silver Star Mountain. When we walked in, we found this home to truly be like a palace. Very clean. Felt like a new home. A beautiful kitchen and a deck with a wonderful view. Had all the amenities that you could ask for including a hot-tub on the roof for the end of day. We couldn't have chosen better accommodations in terms of location. The Purple Palace is literally at the bottom of the trail that leads to the top of the mountain and yet, located quite close to the main village. It's a wonderful, quiet getaway. If you're looking for quality, 5-star accommodations in a great location, this is the place for you. We hope to go back again soon!

Down in Vernon (a short 15 min drive) there are many options to choose from. The list above gives you an idea of all that is available. Two outstanding lakes, Lake Okanagan and Lake Kalamalka are both in Vernon.

On Silver Star Mountain, there is a high altitude training center, rockclimbing wall, mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding, inner tubing, ice skating, and horse drawn wagon rides.
