About the property

Das Rieder Hausli has great views; can accommodate 16 with 6 BRs & 6 baths.

Das Rieder Hausli is a recently built three story Victorian style custom designed home of 3323 sq. ft. (309 sq. m). It has six bedrooms (each with en-suite bath), two laundries, two kitchens, a wet bar, living/dining great room, a den and a gas grill (plumbed to the house) on the deck.

The third floor has three bedrooms; with a king, two queens and two twins. And each has an en-suite bathroom with an antique roll top claw foot tub.

The middle floor bedroom has twin-xl and king beds and an en-suite shower bath. There's also a fully equipped kitchen, wet bar, laundry/mud room, the living/dining great room, a gas grill on the deck and a garage. The middle floor with the third floor which sleeps 11 may be booked separately from the lower/Garden floor. Contact manager Nicole Bellman for booking information. Go to the owner's website for pricing. Rieder Hausli.

The lower or Garden floor has two bedrooms; one with Cal-king and twin daybeds and the other with a queen bed and each has an en-suite bathroom. There is also a fully equipped kitchenette, den and laundry. This floor with its private entrance which sleeps five, may also be booked separately from the two upper floors. Visit the owner's web site for pricing: Das Rieder Hausli.

HD Dish TV and Wi-Fi are provided as are books, board games, jigsaw puzzles, CDs, cassettes, LP records (remember those?) which can be played on either floor's stereo systems. We also have DVD and VCR movies. There is a flat screen TV in the middle floor living room area and a large CRT TV in the Garden floor den.

Das Rieder Huasli is perched at 9,376 ft. (2.856 m) above mean sea level on Quality Hill and is surrounded by fabulous views of the San Juan Mountains. Silverton has the best 4th of July fireworks on the western slope. Even though dRh is perched on Quality Hill it is still within only a few blocks walking distance to historic downtown Silverton where you'll find a Carnegie Library, the refurbished 100 year old school, the Mining Museum and many other historic buildings and fine shops and restaurants.

There is an attached heated garage to keep the snow and frost off of your vehicle (Silverton has only 14 frost free days a year). There are racks for storing your skis or snow boards and a work counter with tools available if needed. A lighted Christmas tree is available for set up if you wish and Forth of July decorations. Ask manager Nicole Bellman about the extra charge for the RV hook up (120V/20A, water and sewer).

Das Rieder Hausli with its ten beds in the six bedrooms and with the adequately equipped kitchens, laundries, great room and den will easily accommodates large groups. We trust that guests will enjoy their stay at dRh and delight in the opportunity to do the many things available in and around historic Silverton for that memorable vacation.

About Nicole Bellman, propery manager

Nicole Bellman owner of Silverton Property Management takes care of maintenance, reservations and bookings for Das Rieder Hausli (dRh).

Nicole Bellman, propery manager purchased this house in 1998

Why Nicole Bellman, propery manager chose Silverton

The owner has always wanted to build a house ever since he was a little boy; so, in 1996 he designed and built his dream home which is now Das Rieder Hausli. The owners family found Silverton in the late 1950's and fell in love with it because it reminded them of Alaska where they once lived.

What makes this house unique

Silverton is in a cauldron of an ancient volcano which formed these magnificent San Juan Mountains (a unique group within the Rocky Mountains). Because of the high altitude 9,318 ft.(2840 m) Silverton summers are in the 70's (21's C) by day and 30-40's (0 -5's C) at night (there are only 14 frost free days a year). The winters are cold with lots of snow; great for winter sports. The three ski areas are Purgatory Resort 23 miles (37 kms) south, Silverton Mountain six miles (10 kms) north and Kendall Mountain right here in town.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home. We have always loved to visit Silverton and staying at Das Rieder Hausli made our time here prefect. The views are breathtaking, the house is lovely, so comfortable, and beautifully decorated. A private bath with every bedroom is a bonus! Sitting on the porch, with a cup of coffee, overlooking the town and Kendall Mountain, is a great way to start the day. I enjoyed poking around the shops in town, too.

I can't wait to talk with our family about all coming up for a reunion. Or... I may just gather some friends for a Quilting Getaway! We could sit and sew, looking out at the mountains all around, for days and days!

We will be returning to Das Rieder Hausli !

The mid floor may also be entered from the garage. So if there is someone in your group with a mobility issue, everything needed for their comfort is on this floor; kitchen, bedroom, 4 ft. (122 cm) handicap shower, great room, wood stove, wet bar, laundry and a deck with the gas grill. The bath doors are wide enough for a wheelchair. The owner being a Polio victim had this level designed for her; that's why there is commercial carpet in the kitchen and bath instead of tile (so that her crutches wouldn't slip). At this altitude air conditioning is not only not needed, but heat may be needed even in the summer; so bring warm clothing. Riding the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Train, hiking, jeeping and skiing or boarding the ski areas could be on your 'bucket list'. Or, how about the quilt show, Rail Fest, Skijoring, stage coach ride or backpacking.. There's an artificial lighted Christmas tree stored in the garage you may set up at Christmas and 4th of July items

The house was perfect for our big family. Everything was convenient. We will book this again.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family enjoyed this house. Every bedroom has a bathroom which is a big plus with a lot of people. The living areas and the kitchens were well equipped and very enjoyable. We all remarked that having privacy as well as a gathering area was a plus. We will book this property again in the future.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation and time with your family. We try our best to keep up with the dust in the houses, but as you noticed, all of our streets are dirt and the wind really gets going up there on the hill. With no rain, we indeed have a dust problem. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope it did not affect your vacation. We hope you choose Silverton as your vacation destination again real soon!

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

The location was fabulous. We have been traveling to this area for several years but this was the first year to stay in Silverton. It was great, close to the mountain passes, all the fun and activities of Silverton but still close enough to visit Ouray, Durango, Telluride and Lake City. This was great for the whole family all 9 of us and the dog. Plenty of parking even for our trailers with quads. Thanks and we will be back.

Car: recommended

The need of a four wheel or all wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended, especially for the drive up the 14% snow packed grade of 10th Street to Das Rieder Hausli in winter. And a high clearance 4x4 comes in handy for tackling Silverton's well known jeep trails. Backpacking and hiking these San Juan Mountain's 14ers (4.300 m) are on many a 'bucket' list. People come from all over to attend Silverton's famous fourth of July events and fire works, (which have the reputation as the best on the western slope). Other events, such as Skijoring, Rail Fest, Hardrockers, Snow Mobile Races, Hardrock Hundred mile Foot Race, The Iron Horse Bicycle Race, Quilt Show, Stage couch Rides, Barbershopers and the Great Rocky Mountain Brass Band are just a few of the many events going on in Silverton throughout the year.
