Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We promised to take the kids to see snow this winter. Unfortunately, this was a very mild winter. The locals told us it hadn't been this sparse since the 70s. We still had fun. We walked around town and enjoyed Silverton even without snow. Great town, great people, and a great house! Also, we were able to take the kids to Purgatory (only 30 min. away) for their snow fix (even though it was man-made, they still loved it!).

The house was very comfortable for our family of 5 (there was plenty of room for more - we should've brought more family!). The house is conveniently located between the main street and the railroad and river. We could easily walk to restaurants as well as let the kids explore around the railroad and river (the railroad doesn't run in the winter, but it was still fun for the kids to explore). The town is surrounded by beautiful peaks. We arrived at night. It was amazing waking up the next morning and seeing how beautiful everything was through the windows of the house. Anyway, we had a great trip and the house was perfect for us!

ATV Home Base

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Colorado for the last 20 years riding 4-wheelers with a group of my buddies. We have stayed all over Colorado in many homes. This house is as advertised, it is in a great location with a large yard and plenty of room to park a truck & trailer and still have room for the 4-wheelers after you have unloaded. The house is not fancy but it has everything you need, great hot water, enough room to spread out in the living room & dinning room, the kitchen is a little small but has everything you need. You can tell they have been trying to update the house and it appears to still be a work in process. We had a great time here and had everything we needed. If you want fancy this is not your place. If you want practical this is it.

The Powder House is a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Powder House 2 times this summer. It's a great place to stay. It has tons of room for a big family or even a few people. The huge fenced yard is great. It's also located on the OHV Route, so you can ride your ATV's right from the home to the tons of trails outside of town. You can also have dogs, upon approval. We will definitely stay here again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Silverton. The owner is kind and helpful. The Powder House is located on the OHV path. This was great for riding razors. This was our meeting spot for breakfast and going out on the trails. The house holds lots of people. It could use some updating. Some personal belongings could be removed.

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 Silverton

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. The house is also located on the OHV route!

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.
