The open concept main level has a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and living room with views of the mountains and the colourful Victorian themed homes on the Knoll. Its easy access to the ski hill make it an ideal location from which to catch first tracks as well as return for a quick lunch before heading out again for more runs in the afternoon. Or you can stay in and enjoy the hot tub. Weekend night skiing is a two minute walk away on the Silver Queen Chair or you can enjoy tube town or skating on the pond within a five minute walk. The village is accessible by a ten to fifteen minute walk down the hill or by the free shuttle which runs through the resort on a regular basis. There you will find ski rentals and several restaurants, pubs, bakeries and shops. During busy seasons there are family activities such as movies, fun fairs and karaoke. The excellent Ski School provides both private and group lessons.

In the off-snow seasons the mountain offers hiking and biking and the house is close to golf, beaches, boating and wine tours.

About Cynthia Johnstone

Sunset House is co-owned and happily used by two families. We were attracted here by the family-friendly atmosphere of Silver Star and of course by the awesome skiing for all levels! The natural beauty of the area and the spring/summer/fall activities are also appealing.

Cynthia Johnstone purchased this house in 2002

Why Cynthia Johnstone chose Silver Star Mountain Resort

The ideal location on the Knoll, allowing easy access to the mountain, the village and resort activities are the main attraction of Sunset House.

What makes this house unique

The space and layout of the house allow the two families to spend time together comfortably, often with additional guests. It is also very easy to get to and from the Kelowna Airport, either by shuttle or by car. Although we have mostly enjoyed the snowy season, the potential for exploring the area and its many attractions in the other seasons is also an added benefit.

Location, kitchen, amenities all the best

  • 5 of 5

Across the street from summit of Silver Queen chair, ski out trail to Aberdeen skiway about 50 feet down the hill, and the best -appointed kitchen on The Knoll. So many towels! So many tissue boxes! Heated mudroom floor! We all loved it, we hope it's available for our next ski trip.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Place was great - well equipped and very comfortable. Location was away from the main lifts so had to veer off to a tiny lift on the other side to access the “ski in”. Super close to the tube park - awesome!!! Would recommend 😊

A weekend in the Sunset Suite

  • 5 of 5

We had an extraordinary time! The weather was fantastic and the snow conditions were unbelievable. This accommodation is so well sited, it was about 50 steps down hill to put our skis on and about the same coming off the hill at the end of the day. The shuttle bus into the village goes right by the front door but everything we needed for the weekend was in the suite.

A lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to Silverstar with my wife and two children (4 month and a 3 year old) and other family members.

We only stayed there for 2 nights but wished we had stayed at minimum of 3 nights. We all loved this chalet, it had character and it really made everyone feel at home.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

I would give this chalet a 4.5 star, if I could. It was a big and comfortable house to spend Christmas in. My kids and extended family really enjoyed it! And the skiing was fabulous!

Snow removal was fantastic. Hot tub was clean and lovely. There was a small climb across the road with skis to access the top of the Silver Queen chair, other than that, great location.

I loved that it is somebody's home and thus salt/pepper, saran wrap, and other things you forget to bring are supplied. It felt like home immediately.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. We are so delighted you enjoyed the house and to hear the skiing conditions were great! You must have been using the Silver Queen access to the mountain, which is a great way to get skiing. However, if you'd prefer a downhill walk, you can head down Monashee Road for less than a minute and access the mountain beside the Grandview Condos. Thanks again!
