Welcome to our home -- Morrisey Chalet At Sun Peaks!
This is a stunning mountain home in a quiet and private setting (yet still within a stroll to the Village at Sun Peaks). Our Chalet has beautiful mountain and forest views and a year-round babbling creek adjacent to the 4th hole fairway. Many families and friends tell us that they feel peaceful and relaxed in our mountain "home away from home" and we enjoy hosting families and/or friends coming together to create those special memories for summer or winter reunions.
We have a floor to vaulted ceiling fireplace and panoramic windows, log beams, private 6 person hot tub, heated floors, leather furniture, large kitchen, four bedrooms, ample parking and laundry room.
Our chalet sleeps up to 14 people, which normally includes eight adults and up to six children (including teenagers). Morrisey Chalet has 4 bedrooms (1 master bedroom on the top floor with a queen size bed, single bed, and portable baby crib), 2 bedrooms on the main floor with queen size beds, and a double and single downstairs that sleeps 3. There are also two double sofa beds in the downstairs family recreation room which sleep four. All queen size beds have comforters/duvets and memory foam for comfort. There are three bathrooms with heated tile floors.
The chalet is perfect for extended family reunions or TWO TO THREE FAMILIES to get together. Children and teenagers love our downstairs family and recreation room and the fact that they can sled right across the street on Mt. Morrisey (we have sleds available).
PLEASE NOTE that we have a separate access unit below Morrisey Chalet with stairs down on the left. Kathy and I stay there full time in winter, so we look forward to meeting our guests and offering a personal service. We do, however, feel it is important to respect your privacy, since this is your holiday, and the entire large home and hot tub are used solely by you as guests who rent the chalet.
SKI-IN ACCESS is from two of Sun Peaks’ newest Morrisey black runs: “Lint Trap” & “Tumble Dry” plus blue run "Back In Time," and green run “Home Run-Fairway-Mountain View" trail. Our guest book contains full description of the runs with map and photos.
There is not a very easy ski out. Younger/fit people may climb up the hill across our street and ski down to the Burfield Chair, BUT a shuttle stops DIRECTLY in front of the chalet every hour during ski season (starting at 8:30am). The last shuttle leaves the Village Day Lodge (VDL) at 9:30pm, and starting winter, 2018, Sun Peaks will have a new taxi service. We enjoy taking the shuttle since it is easy and we find it much more convenient than driving (and is better for the Sun Peaks environment).
PLEASE NOTE THAT PRICES on VRBO are in US DOLLARS unless specified otherwise. For Canadian dollars, please see: www.homeaway.ca/cottage-rental/p749332vb (the Canadian HomeAway site). You can book through either the VRBO or HomeAway sites for the same price.
We have special reduced prices for week long stays, weeknights and summer periods.
Sun Peaks has been experiencing a building boom and we currently have new home construction on our street including next to Morrisey Chalet -- but construction stops after 5:00pm and now is mostly on the inside of the house being built.
We are located on Mountain View Drive, in Mountain View Estates, one of the newer subdivisions in Sun Peaks. Morrisey Chalet is a peaceful walk along the Village Trail (15 min) or along Fairways Drive to the Village Day Lodge (VDL), restaurants, and shops/businesses.
For further descriptions, here is our letter to new guests:

THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF OUR EXPECTATIONS:
This is not a party house, nor do we rent out for weddings, stag parties, etc. We encourage regular family get-togethers, and want you to have fun, but we do have neighbors with small children, and expect our guests to respect their right for quiet after 11pm (as the Sun Peaks Bi-laws state).
CHILDREN: We have flexibility in the master suite with an extra single bed, plus a portable toddler floor crib and an extra foam pad (on request). We also have a high chair. In addition we have many DVDs for children plus many board games.
PETS: We will consider pets (please describe your situation regarding your pet). There will be a pet fee per pet (with a maximum of two pets).
