Wonderful home and great skiing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Silver Star and we had a wonderful time at Rene and Emma's beautiful and spacious home. Skiing was great and it was very convenient to ski in/out of their house. Rene and Emma were very friendly hosts. We will definitely stay there when we return to Silver Star next year. Thanks Rene and Emma for sharing your home!

Our Most Amazing Annual Sisters' Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Vernon was incredible: our rooms were perfect, the kitchen and dining room were inviting, squeaky clean and perfectly supplied. The living room was cozy with a lovely fireplace and large windows looking out on the trails nearby. Every aspect of our accommodation was beyond our expectations: what a wonderful experience. Thank you Emma and Rene!

Cozy house at SilverStar

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bristol House at SilverStar. It was a perfect size for our party--four adults and two children. Great set up with bedrooms upstairs and lots of living space down including a full kitchen and big-screen TV for watching the Olympics! We also loved the hot tub and made sure to soak after skiing every day. The only drawback is it was a bit challenging to actually ski in and out of (it would have involved a trail to Silver Queen chair, a ride up, then another trail into the village), so we ended up shuttling equipment and skiers down to the village, which was a lot faster. It wasn't a big deal, but is something to consider if ski-in/ski-out is important to you.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the accommodation, as far as ski in and out ,you can access the whole mountain from our backyard via Silver Queen chair you than can access the Silverwoods chair and Comet chair and on return get back to the Silver Queen chair to ski back to our house, if you need tickets they are available in the village or ski to Brewers pond on the way to the Silver Queen lift! If you need to be in the village for lessons or meeting people you can take the free shuttle it stops in front of the house and will take you there in 10 minutes every halve hour !

Lovely well-kept home and convenient for skiing.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a group of 4 friends to stay at Silverstar. Our hosts were welcoming, the kitchen was fully equipped, the hot tub relaxing and there was easy access to the lifts and trails. With a little investigation we found we could ski down to Brewer's Pond to purchase our tickets and catch a trail from the top of Silver Queen to make this a ski-in/out home. We enjoyed the easy access to downhill, nordic, snow-shoeing and skating close to home. I would definitely stay again on a future trip.

The Perfect Ski House

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect place to stage a family or friends ski vacation. It has the feel of a well stocked home but is upscale, impeccably clean, and incredibly quiet and secluded, while still being centrally situated in the Knoll neighborhood, and an easy walk to the Village. The owners are available and happy to help with any question or need.
