About Morgan Gurule

My name is Don Gurule and I was born and raised in this house. It has a lot of history and is a very perfect place to feel at home.

Why Morgan Gurule chose Southwestern Colorado

As you are probably aware, Silverton Colorado is a very special place. The mountain views, clean crisp air and peacefulness is something that no other place can offer. My family has been a part of Silverton for many generations. This house has been in my family for many generations also, I grew up here, I watched my kids grow up here and I have been lucky enough to see my grandkids enjoy it! We hope that you enjoy our home and the beautiful surroundings as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

The views from all windows in all the rooms are spectacular mountain views. The house has all natural hardwood floors, a fire place, a huge yard and lots of parking. Everything you have at home is here for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If your looking for a good at home getaway this is your house. We enjoyed everything so much from the old characteristics of the house to the yard and all the things we could do around there. It is the coolest place to stay considering its been in their family for well over 50 years.

Nice Silverton style character. Good location in Silveton - walking distance to everything. TV was a big plus for the cold winter nights. Well stocked!

This is a great place for the price! If you are looking for an economic place, this is your stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, we came with a big group of people to go skiing at Purgatory and the house was perfect for us. The price is a great value and the house has everything you need. I had to replace my car battery and they even had the tools to do it. It snowed on us hard and they Closed the pass to Durango. The owners were so kind to let us stay at the house for additional days free of charge until they open the roads. It was such a great time and blessing to stay at the Powderhouse!

Perfect for a rustic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Superb host! Was super quick to reply to my last-minute booking request and questions I had during my stay. Really cozy home with an excellent wood stove! The place is still under a bit of construction (exposed drywall in the master bedroom and no door on the master bathroom), but the condition is completely livable. This is NOT a luxury vacation rental. It is an old, charming, historical home with lots of character. We had plenty of space, and loved the enclosed backyard for our dog. Would definitely recommend this place!

Old, rustic & beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip here was exactly as we planned. There was more than enough room for the kids as well as the adults. It looks as if we booked in the middle of a remodel so I can't wait to go back and see the new updated version.

The powderhouse was great.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house. Everything we needed was there. A little rustic, and the beds were not the most comfortable, but overall it worked great for us. Central to everything with a great yard. We would definitely stay there again. Loved it.
