Location & Map

Location

Ski vacations are all about location, location, and The Stellar Star on Spencer Lane is location plus!!!  If you were to pick the essentials, must haves, and must wants, they will likely include:

True Ski in/Ski out, easy vehicle access with private, close-in parking, walking distance to all ammenities, yet private, quiet setting....  Stellar Star... check, check, check!! 

Our private yet close-in location is just off the main road leading to the village, which makes for an easy 5 minute level walk to the village center, and 5 minutes across the night-lit overpass (no need for young ones to walk the road) to the tube town and skating pond.  The Alpine Meadows ski-way runs 10 steps from the back door...  up 5 steps, click on your skiis, one or 2 pushes and you are standing at the Alpine Meadows lift, from which you can access the entire mountain.  Kids or yourself just learing to ski?  The ski-way overpass takes you gently down to the Silver Queen beginner lift, a fantastic place to learn. 

The private, plowed, 2 car parking is 10 steps from the covered back door entrance.  What more can you want...?!?

The Waddington home accommodated our two family vacation (4 children) perfectly. There was plenty of room inside and out for the kids to play, and quick access to the lifts from the home. A very family friendly home!

Wonderful ski vacation! Accommodation was everything we were hoping for, it was spacious, clean, had an awesome hot tub and well stocked with everything we needed. The location was perfect, ski in and ski out made it easy to come in for a quick lunch and it was a quick walk into the village in the evening. Josh was quick to respond and extremely accommodating. Would highly recommend this rental property!

Great location on a great hill

Gary from Port Moody, Canada

Our ski group of 10 were all impressed with the Stellar Star. Great house in a great location. Easy ski in/out and 10 minute walk to village....just buy your lift tickets ahead of time as the run down to the village a bit time consuming. Everyone was impressed with the layout, cleanliness, furnishings and well supplied kitchen. We have already decided to return next year.

Stellar Star - Christmas 2015

Doug from Monroe, United States
Date: Dec-31-2015 for a stay in Dec 2015

Overall, the Stellar Star home was spacious and provided a good location for alpine skiing access. Not as ideal for nordic. The owner, Josh, was very responsive and accommodating throughout the entire process of booking and even during our stay.

Given this was the first season as being offered as a rental, the Stellar Star was well appointed with all that was needed during our stay, including new and comfortable living room furniture.

Our only concerns was that the bedroom descriptions on the listing did not match what we experienced as we had expected a fourth bedroom in the main unit (not shared with the lower suite) and that the hot tub while listed as private for the upper unit guests was used by the lower unit guests during our stay (could be that the lower unit guests were unaware). Again, Josh was understanding and said he would make the description more clear on the bedrooms.
