Why Melissa Childs chose Southwestern Colorado

Our catering business was growing rapidly and we needed our own commercial kitchen. We found this beautiful property in the business district of Silverton. We knew immediately the detached garage would make the perfect catering kitchen and the historic cottage in front is the ultimate vacation house.

Cozy,colorful,comfortable spot!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, teenage son and I stayed for several days in June and found this to be a peaceful, comfortable spot to return to each day after our hiking and exploring. The decor was creative and whimsical and as others have remarked on, we appreciated the comfortable bedding. We enjoyed mellow hours on the front porch and had a couple of meals on the back patio also. We liked that the house is in a quiet part of town and we were able to easily walk to shops and restaurants. We did not have opportunity to meet our hosts in person, but appreciated their attentive communication via email--even after our departure when we accidentally left something behind and Melissa popped it in the mail to us in a timely manner. Our visit would have been even more positive had the rental included local and/or organic breakfast items and bath products. We tend to say in VRBO properties or small inns/b&b's and always value this extra, conscious touch. Thank you!

Great place to stay in Silverton

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house especially the Murphy bed and finding breakfast staples in the fridge. You can walk to everything in town but location was very quiet. Already booked again for fall.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend & I stayed in this wonderful charming historic home over Labor Day week end. We were so excited when we opened the door. We were delighted with the comfortable charm of this cottage. Melissa, the owner had thought of everything possible to ensure that guests are comfortable and have all the creature comforts of home. We enjoyed the covered front porch, the pretty patio & backyard too. Unfortunately, we were unable to have the chance to ride the bikes that are provided. We look forward to booking another visit to this delightful cottage.

Charming, cheerful mountain cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We have been traveling to the Silverton-Ouray area every year for a decade, always trying out different camping, hotel, condo combinations. This cottage wins for convenient and quiet location one block off Mainstreet Silverton. A quick scenic drive to stunning Mineral Springs Valley and Ouray. Cozy mornings were delightful due to the kitchen stocked with mountain breakfast staples like bacon, eggs, pancake mix, and coffee of course. My son loved the "magic" bed that appeared out of the wall (murphy bed). Decoration is cheery and artsy, living space and beds casual and comfortable. Patio and grass yard are dog and kid friendly. Hope to stay here again next year.

Very nice and charming little house!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely nice stay in this nice little house! Very comfortable for two adults and two teenagers. Nicely renovated and convenient to all the town activities. We enjoyed the fire pit and patio as well. My husband really liked the automatic fireplace in the living area since he only had to push a button! My teenagers liked the free Wi-Fi, stereo, board games and thought the Murphy bed was very cool! Breakfast items provided was a very nice touch. Would definitely stay again!

Amazing house in an amazing town

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our experience at Melissa's cabin in Silverton. It had everything that we needed and was clean and comfortable. She keeps the kitchen stocked for breakfast and there is a beautiful backyard with a fireplace. We will stay here again next time we are in Silverton, CO.
