Great space and location

  • 5 of 5

The two rooms were cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for our stay. Deck is a nice addition to enjoy the sunshine. Heater works exceptionally well to keep the ladies warm. Overall it was wonderful and would definitely stay here on our next travel to Silverton.

We loved the cabin - it was comfortable and clean and the lady living downstairs was very welcoming. We would definitely be interested in staying there in the future. One thing we did want to mention - the bathroom sink drains very slowly so we usually avoided using it. I just wanted to tell you so you can get it fixed. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. So glad you had a great trip. Also, thank you for letting us know about the sink. We're not always there It's been taken care of and shouldn't be a problem anymore.

Amazing! Best view in town!

  • 5 of 5

Had a blast! Very nice place. Don't be alarmed when you arrive that there is no air conditioning. We did buy a fan for the day to help the breeze during the day but not necessary. We are from Oklahoma so it was just a hard concept to understand that there was no air. Lol. Ensure not to park anywhere but north of house and not past fence. I felt bad we did because the owner received a call from someone to move our trailer we hauled our side by sides on from Oklahoma. Owner very nice and explained he didn't own past the fence. If you are staying more than a couple days, bring paper towels and toilet paper as with any vrbo. For those who like to workout utilizing an iPad, I worked out every morning on the deck with the best view ever! Teller House has the best Mexican food - yummy! Their jalepeno margaritas-best ever! You have to eat at the funnel cake place on Green Street - they offer not only sweet funnel cakes, but funnel cakes with beef and cheese and other hearty toppings. After my first workout on the deck, I decided to run for a couple miles - I saw a bear!!! Never experienced that! The bear was in someone's yard pilfering for food. He made eye contact with me but that was it!!! I freaked out at first and realized he was not interested in me, but only interested in what was in the garbage. (Thank God!) One evening, we sat on the roof top at the rum bar. Not any better view than the Animas House for sure. The water is hot in the shower for sure. You don't run out of hot water either! The Animas House has been remodeled and up to date for sure with a stainless refrigerator, big TV in LR, wood floor - awesome place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. It sounds like you had a great trip with some fun new experiences. Definitely don't need air-conditioning in Silverton. The parking isn't a big deal at all. Don't feel bad. I just try to keep my neighbors happy. We actually just expanded the parking on the South side of the house and there should be plenty for cars and trailers now. So glad you have a great trip. Come back and visit again. Dan and Jill
