About William Himes

Bill and Linda Himes have been married for 18 years and live in Elmhurst, IL. Bill is a conductor and composer of instrumental and choral works and has over 170 publications to his credit. Bill and Linda are now both retired and plan to visit their mountain hideaway more often while leaving key holiday and spring break ski times available for rentals.

William Himes purchased this condo in 2007

Why William Himes chose Silverthorne

Bill and Linda have skied for years in Colorado's Summit County and bought their Silverthorne condo in 2007 in order to fully enjoy year-round the beautiful scenery and skiing and hiking in what must be one of God's favorite playgrounds. They chose this condo because of its quiet location and the supreme views of the National Forest, Breckenridge Peak 1 and Buffalo Mountain as well as the spacious and comfortable floor plan that can comfortably accommodate their extended family.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is very comfortable place in all seasons. Its central location to retail stores, restaurants, theaters, and all ski areas in the region is a major plus that we have grown to appreciate even more through numerous visits each year. One of our favorite pastimes is to spot wildlife from our balcony - including moose, fox, muledeer, and hummingbirds.

wonderful condo with a perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Bill's Watch Hill condo was a perfect spot for our family. He was easy to communicate with and the place was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The hot tub nearby was large and had a great view. but by far the best thing about this condo (and there were many great features), was the amazing view. The large windows make it hard not to just stare out at the mountains constantly!

After a day of skiing we enjoyed cooking together, playing games, going in the hot tub, and watching the stars on the balcony.

All of my group of 6 would highly recommend this condo and hope to come again next year!

Far exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Property exceeded expectations. The views are incredible. No photos of the kitchen, but it is fully stocked with anything you need. Kitchen table seats 6 and can be expanded for more. Beds are comfortable, hot tub steps away. Linda and William respond to emails very promptly and work with you to ensure your stay is enjoyable. The floor to ceiling windows overlook a forest area and we were able to see many different birds, foxes, and moose. I’ve stayed at many places in the mountains over the past 10 years, but this was by far my favorite. Highly recommend, no complaints.

Perfect place for a Summit County stay.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just as it is described: great condo, great views! We had 8 people in it for a week while we skied the Summit County slopes. One set of grandparents, one set of parents and four kids (17, 15, 13, 12) fit nicely. We had everything we needed and it was even warm enough by Thursday to sit on the balcony and enjoy the spectacular scenery.

Beautiful Condo. Breathtaking Views and Quiet Surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

I took a trip with 8 of my girl friends and we had an amazing time at this condo. You get a spectacular view of Buffalo Mountain and the surrounding mountains of the Tenmile Range. None of us had stayed that high up in the mountains and it was a real treat. The condo is well equipped with everything you would need. Beds were comfortable and the space seemed bigger than it was. We were so pleased and lucky to have stayed in such an amazing place. Also very close to town and the neighboring towns that are nestled in the mountains together.
