 Welcome!

The Mornington House is a large (5,200 sq/ft) luxurious family home that has been totally renovated and extended for the 2011 season. It covers all three floors of an iconic Victorian-styled house. Check out the floor plans and the 360degree tour at http://realbigtours.com/morningtonhouse/#

NOTE: the main house (sleeps 14) or suite (sleeps 6) can be booked separately. Please email us for rates and availability.

For extended families and large adult groups we offer you our cozy home for your perfect vacation. It is fitted out as our second home, rather than a rental unit, with luxury furnishings, artworks and equipment, so we ask that guests respect this. 

It has direct ski access to the Knoll skiway from the rear decks, or via the skiway by the house next door. But is you fancy staying at home, this is a home where you will feel comfortable. We have added NetFlix, a PS/3 plus an Infrared Sauna, as well as underfloor heating for the 2011 season.

With 8 full bedrooms (5 are en-suites), there are no pullout beds or sofa-beds - up to 20 guests all sleep in bedrooms. There are 7 bathrooms, 2 hot-tubs, 2 kitchens and 4 living-rooms, so you can have all the comfort and privacy you need for the perfect vacation.

There are fantastic views, and you have an internal garage plus parking for 5-6 cars in the driveway.

Book early for savings and to avoid disappointment!!

 Local Tips

 About Us

We are a family with 3 teenage kids now living in Singapore. We fell in love with SilverStar after many years skiing Whistler, and bought Mornington as a large but neglected 'victorian' family house in 2003. Note it is the central house in the classic SilverStar brochure! Since then we have spent time there every year - both in winter and summer. We love the skiing and relaxed friendly village life. Summers are blissful as well!

We have renovated the house continuously over the past 5 years, and it is now finished! We have enclosed much of the old covered deck that surrounded the house to make more space and make if lighter and more spacious inside.

For 2010-11 there is a huge new main-floor kitchen with a new side entry and boot room, new underfloor heating and a new rear deck with sauna.

Downstairs we have added a new dining area, laundry room and en-suite bathroom to transform the master bedroom. Come stay in our home!!

We Couldn't Have asked for More

left on Mar-12-2014

The Mornington is truly a special home. This was the first time our group of 16 visited SilverStar and booked at the Mornington, and we found it to the be best place we have ever stayed at. The house is furnished as a home, rather than a rental suite. All the beds, furnishing and decoration are tasteful and upscale. There is plenty of dishes, cups, mugs, cutlery - and they all match! The best thing is the number of bathrooms - no more than 3 of us had to share a bathroom. We had both the upper and lower unit and loved the sauna! There was plenty of room to cook together and share meals in the large kitchen and dining room. We also loved the number of small living rooms that made it easy to have some quiet time away from the larger group. The living rooms have nice comfortable sofas - not sofa beds, so you are not tempted to use them as beds and cram more people into the home. The home is spacious, well appointed and well cared for. The owner, Ian, is very responsive as is Scarlet, the manager. In fact, they made special arrangements to show us Mornington in the spring when we were in the area. Scarlet answers her phone and comes by if anything is needed. The skiing was fabulous - both x-country and alpine. Ski out is marvellous and ski-in requires a moderate walk or the frequent shuttle bus from the village. We definitely will be back! We are breaking with tradition and returning to SilverStar and Mornington.
