                      • Silverton is located in the heart of the lower San Juan Mt range. It is incredibly pristine and some what remote. I cannot think of a more beautiful place anywhere in the world and I have traveled extensively. There is everything that you might imagine in the area surrounding Silverton inclusive of historic and outdoor venues that would take years to explore. The historic Durango - Silverton train is a main draw in the summer and Silverton Mt. Ski area in the winter. Other Activities: Mt climbing, hiking, birding, flowers, river running, kayaking...moreless

                        Five friends and I rented this home for a long ski weekend at Silverton Mountain. You may have a short walk to get to town, but this house is extremely convenient for being in the town of Silverton, or skiing at Silverton Mountain and still feels secluded in the wilderness. It is a beautifully decorated home with fantastic pieces from Tibet and the Far East, its warm and inviting, and very spacious. The house is solar hot water heated and stays warm throughout. We had no problems with the TV as some have mentioned. With panoramic views of the mountains, a stream in the backyard, and a spacious sauna behind the house, we couldn't ask for a better mountain get away in Silverton.

                        My wife and I have traveled to Silverton more than a dozen times over the years, but always in the summer. This year, we decided to bring our daughter, her husband, and two grandchildren over the Christmas holiday. We spent five nights in Betsy's beautiful home. Creativity and style resonate in every inch of this house. My grandkids loved their room and took turns sleeping in the "nook". They left saying how much they enjoyed their winter stay in Silverton and how much they loved your home. We created lifelong memories in your home and hope to stay again someday. Betsy was awesome to work with and Karen her property manager was very helpful and made checking and departing a breeze. We highly recommend Betsy's home to anyone wanting a first class experience in Silverton.

                        This was our second year staying at this custom home and it was just as spectacular as we remembered. The gardens and unique interior are beyond description. They both transport you to another place. The fire pit out back is one of our grandsons favorite activities along with the location in regards to hiking. The steam showers and peace and quiet are always a favorite of the adults. Great family vacation spot for outdoor activities or just for a quiet get away.

                        Lovely home and property. Not a great experience with the owner however. When we arrived at the property, it was supposed to have been cleaned and prepared for us prior to check-in, but unfortunately, the house had not been cleaned, the beds had been stripped but not re-made so all of the linens and pillows were on the floor, dirty sheets and laundry were left in the machine wet and the floors were flithy. Basically we had to clean the bathrooms, sweep/mop, make the beds, do the laundry, etc. ourselves before we could enjoy the vacation. No response from the owner regarding the problem.. Once we got over the hurdle of checking in and getting the house ready, we enjoyed our time there and found the home itself to be a great place.

                        Owner response: This comes as surprise as I am the property owner and was not made aware of the condition of the house prior to our guests arrival. This has never happened and my apologies are in order. I will ensure this situation will never happen again. Betsy

                        Oh my goodness...where to begin??? This home and property is stunning and it will be difficult to capture our experience with words, but I'll do my best! We have visited Silverton several times with our family and it's difficult to stay elsewhere! The homeowner has impeccably designed the home for incredible comfort and fully captured the stunning natural beauty of the San Juan Mountains. We were all in heaven during our stay and the access to winter (or summer) activities is unparallelled! Do yourself and your family a favor~book this house and you will not be disappointed...you'll also be creating memories to last a lifetime!!

                        This house has a variety of architectural styles that are nicely blended and accentuated by a wide ranging collection of furniture and art. There is one aspect that they don't mention, and that is: there are no doors to any bedroom or bathroom. Absolutely bizarre for a rental to groups(city dwellers may be freaked out by the absence of curtains, but you are fairly alone). The master and third bedroom are joined by the masterbath, separated by a curtain. There is little ongoing maintenance, so once fancy fixtures and chairs are falling apart-not many. The kitchen is well stocked with implements, but no soap or toilet paper is provided for bathrooms, not to mention that staple of skiing vacations - Kleenex. Bring your personal reading lights. Hot water is good and plentiful. The heat is in floor, which is generally very nice during waking hours, but tough for those who like a cold bedroom to sleep in. The views are fantastic and the lot is very pleasant to wander around during non skiing time.

                        My husband, a few friends and I had a great time at Betsy's place! The house is beautiful and warm, filled with fabulous architectural details collected with passion all over the world. The kitchen is large and comfortable, perfect for cooking great meals and gathering with friends. Bathrooms are beautiful, beds comfortable and location is peaceful and amazing ! Everyone was happy and loved this home. The manager, Nicole, is not very friendly but the owner, Betsy, is great to work with! This is truly a special Place! Thank you and I hope to be back Marta
