The house is old but super cute. we didn't bring food because everyone was talking about breakfast always being stocked but we only found 2 eggs and that was it. I probably would not stay here again. the town was awesome though.

Great Little House

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little house within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants Silverton has to offer. The bed was comfy and the yard was great for our dogs. The fridge was fully stocked which was nice as well. The only inconveniences we came across were that the windows don't open so our first day and night in the house was pretty warm. We had both doors open to try to cool it off but it didn't work too well since the daytime temperatures were in the 80s. We ended up leaving all the curtains closed for the rest of our stay to keep it cool. I understand this is a very old home but we have stayed in others around Silverton that have windows that open. We were also planning on traveling with another couple who luckily canceled since the 2nd bedroom is completely open to the living room with no separation. It would have been a little awkward deciding who would have gotten the actual bedroom. These inconveniences aren't deal breakers but it's something to consider.

This was a great place to stay! Loved all the little extras. Our family has made regular visits to Silverton for over 50 years and this was one of the best places I have ever stayed. Would definitely stay here again!

One of the best rentals we've ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This house was charming and in a perfect location that was walkable to everything in Silverton, including restaurants, cafes and groceries. The lovely fenced in yard was spacious and greatly appreciated by our puppy and the gas outdoor firepit was beloved by the humans. Melissa was an excellent host, and was very prompt in helping out with any concerns. The fridge stocked with fresh eggs, bacon, orange juice and bagels was a nice touch. We highly recommend this listing.

Cute and Unique Rental On OTV Route with amazing Kendall Mtn Views

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! We had an amazing time during our 2 week stay at this quaint little cottage! From beginning to end, this was a flawless experience. Melissa was so quick to answer any question or need we had during the booking process and continued to be an incredible host once we arrived. We had the great pleasure of personally meeting Melissa and her husband. They are amazing and so accommodating!!

The Stellar house is an ideal location 1 block from Main Street and right on the OTV Route. You can easily walk to anything in town. Restaurants and bars are literally steps away as well as shopping.

Upon arrival we found the refrigerator stocked with eggs, bacon, bagels, and orange juice. Wow! What a nice touch! The house itself is full of beautiful plants, incredible art, one of a kind antiques, and unique touches. It is such a cozy place we couldn't help but feel welcomed.

The beds and linens were super comfy and although I was unsure about the Murphy bed in the den, it was actually very comfortable. The bed in the master was dreamy.

From the front porch there is a great view of Kendall Mountain. This is a terrific place to enjoy morning coffee or just take in the scenery. The back patio is magical. We went out there every night to enjoy the neat little fire pit and stargaze. Talk about relaxing!

I highly recommend this special place. It was a perfect getaway for the 2 of us!!

Quaint little place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay here every summer along with our terrier. It's a great little place on the atv route with a nice size parking spot for truck and trailer plus a backyard to chill or give your pet a place to stretch their legs.

Why Melissa Childs chose Silverton

Our catering business was growing rapidly and we needed our own commercial kitchen. We found this beautiful property in the business district of Silverton. We knew immediately the detached garage would make the perfect catering kitchen and the historic cottage in front is the ultimate vacation house.
