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.

Christmas in Silverton

  • 5 of 5

Overall everything was great. We had 4 adults and 7 children and there was more than enough room for all of us. The owners are very nice and very responsive. We got snowed in with the passes closed in both directions and the house was nice and warm. After reading reviews I brought some kitchen gear along but the only thing that we really used was our nonstick pans. They had tons of pots and pans and a griddle too. Honestly from the pictures I didn't really know what to expect but the pictures don't do it justice. It's super cute and cozy on the inside. I would stay here again.

Too rustic to be clean

  • 2 of 5

I was expecting this house to be somewhat rustic from the reviews, but it was too rustic for our taste. The problem was that the house was so rustic that it could not or was not cleaned properly. Some of the sheetrock was not finished, all of the carpet was worn and just spliced throughout the house. Therefore, dirt and debris was in most every crevice. The bathroom trash had not been emptied leaving us to view things that I never want to see of the previous occupants. The beds were broken down and uncomfortable. Most of the large pans were non-stick and the Teflon was coming off making them unusable. The satellite upstairs did not work. I know this property is a value, but we stay in Silverton several times a year and this was by far the most disappointed we have been.

Was perfect for our group of dirt bikers in town to ride the high peaks.

There was 5 of us and we had plenty of space to spread out and the back porch was the perfect place to put on our gear.

It is a rustic old facility that was plenty comfortable.

Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, kitchen not so much but still ok.

We enjoyed horseshoe pits in the evenings.

Would definitely stay again.

Right in Town

  • 4 of 5

Centrally located right in town. Good price for the value. The heat didn't work well. There were two thermostats, but they didn't appear to work. Lighting a fire in the kitchen stove helped a little. Everything else was great! We had 7 people. Perfect for 6 (or more if there are couples).
