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, two laundries, two kitchens, a wet bar, living/dining great room, a den and a gas grill on the deck.

The third floor has two bedrooms; with a king in one and a queen in the other plus a suite with a queen 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 may be booked separately from the lower/Garden floor.

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 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 on Quality Hill it is still within easy 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. Inquire 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

I am Nicole Bellman owner of Silverton Property Management. I take 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 Southwest

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 Durango Mountain 22 miles (36 km) south, Silverton Mountain six miles (10 km) 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 !

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.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Das Rieder Hausli and this is definitely THE place to stay with a large group! The owners put a lot of thought into building and furnishing the home. Everything for your comfort is provided. We especially enjoyed the kitchen area, as everyone would congregate while we were preparing meals. The views from the house are spectacular! Thank you for allowing us to use your home!

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

wonderful place to stay! this home is very accommodating with 6 beds & baths. we had a family reunion with my parents, siblings and children. the kitchens had smaller appliances like crock pots, toasters and coffee makers, which we used a lot. its like a home away from home! the garage was nice for all our jackets, boots and outdoor gear to stay dry without being in the house.... do watch out for chipmunks, they like to sneak in when the garage door is up. with a large group its fun to be close enough to walk to town, but not be so close to other houses. you can even hear the train whistle if you open the windows. you can tell the owners desire you to have a pleasant stay with all they have done for your added comfort while you are there.

Excellent for large groups

  • 4 of 5

I rented this house for a big group of people attending an Avalanche Course. This house easily accommodated 12+ in our group with 2 kitchens and lots of bedrooms and bathroom. Everyone had tons of personal space and a garage for all our skis and wet gear.

Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, birthdays, family reunions. This house would be a great option for any big group wanting to play in the mountains together.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments. We look forward to seeing you and your group again sometime. We've installed ski/snow board racks in the garage. Also all beds now have down/blend comforters for your winter comfort.

Beautiful large Victorian style house.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with large groups in this this beautiful large Victorian style house, located on a elevated lot above the charming town of Silverton. We have such sweet memories of our stays there. It is a fun house to bring families and friends with privacy for everyone. You feel right at home from the minute you enter the house and the views of the surrounding mountains and town are awesome. We would definitely recommend this house to others wanting a beautiful and relaxing place to stay while enjoying all the fun and adventure that the historic town of Silverton has to offer.

Car: necessary

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 Foot Race, The Iron Horse Bicycle Race, Quilt Show, Barbershopers and the Great Rocky Mountain Brass Band are just a few of the many events going on in Silverton throughout the year.

Bookings are handled through: Manager Nicole Bellman (970)759-0943, Since this is a large house, she must have the change-over/prep days for cleaning and preparation. The prep days are the day a guest checks out and the day next guest checks in. If there is a colored triangle in that day, it's a prep day and therefore not available for booking, so please understand this when booking to avoid any possible conflict.
A three night stay may be allowed for Regular and Off Seasons at certain times of the year but will be prorated.

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 or backpacking just to name a few more. There's an artificial lighted Christmas tree stored in the garage you may set up at Christmas and 4th of July items.
