About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 12)

This newly remodeled historic home is in a prime location at the quiet north end of 'notorious' Blair Street and a one-block walk from the main avenue. A quaint Victorian on the outside, it features all the modern-day conveniences and comforts on the inside. Located on the newly established OHV route will make your adventures more convenient as you can ride right from the house.

GREAT VALUE. This house is sunny, cozy and perfect for good friends or two small families. A kitchen island bar makes for a fun social atmosphere. A sunny porch with views, a wood-burning stove, a Jacuzzi bathtub, and a ski-tuning shop make this the perfect base camp for your Silverton adventures.

One large bedroom has a queen bed and full-size futon. Then there's a very small room with a bunk bed. In the living room, the oversized memory-foam window den can sleep a tall adult. (And it's perfect for naps in the sunshine!)

About The Owner

I first came to the San Juan Mountains 13 years ago, lured by the promise of legendary powder skiing, endless miles of sweet singletrack, and a college education. I settled in Durango and was not disappointed. I still live in Durango with my wolf-shepherd mix Skyler and kayak, bike, ski, and hike in the mountains all the time. I spent the last two and a half years personally renovating this historic Victorian house into the perfect pad for adventures in the mountains or just hanging out with a bunch of friends. Many good times have been had there already and many more to come!

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Silverton

After skiing, biking, and hiking in the mountains around Silverton for years, I decided I needed my own base camp in Silverton even though I only live an hour away in Durango. Silverton is a peaceful mountain burg and the ultimate adventure playground, with soaring peaks, raging rivers, and unbelievable vistas from almost anywhere in town. Little has changed since Silverton was a mining boom town 100 years ago—most of the quaint Victorian houses and shops still line the wide unpaved streets. Silverton still has the feel of the Wild West of yesteryear but with a modern-day adventurous social atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

Backcountry and Nordic skiing right out the front door, while a mere block's walk to restaurants, bars, and shops!

Centrally located in Silverton

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one night before a day of skiing Silverton Mountain. Saved us a very early departure from another location. Nicely renovated old miner's house. The wood stove really kicks out some heat and DOES burn all night. The upstairs bedrooms stay especially warm.

Great Location, Great Host, Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at the Wolfhouse!

It is right downtown, walking distance to all of Silverton. The host Andrew was very responsive. Please really clean and seems newly remodeled.
