About Carol L Wilkins - Owner / Karen Srebacic-Sites - Property Manager

About Carol Wilkins - I traded the beaches of Cape Cod for the mountains of the West in 1990. I have lived in SW Colorado for almost 30 yrs. When I moved to Silverton, I knew it was home. This area has all of the things I like to do...skiing (both resort and backcountry), snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, it's all here, plus so much more. Winter is a magical time here. I love the quietness and peacefulness. This is an amazing community and I'm so thankful that I am a part of it. I have met some of my dearest and closest friends here. Life is always changing and full of surprises.

I'm a Jewelry Designer, specifically a Silversmith. I participate in art shows during the winter months, mainly in Tucson, AZ. I spend most of my winters in the desert with my boyfriend, Ken, and our dogs, Charley and Kendall. I am fortunate that I can still spend part of my winters and my summers in Silverton.

Karen Srebacic-Sites has lived in Silverton for many years. She is a wonderful property manager. If you have any questions regarding your stay, please feel free to call her!

Carol L Wilkins - Owner / Karen Srebacic-Sites - Property Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Carol L Wilkins - Owner / Karen Srebacic-Sites - Property Manager chose Silverton

Carol's reasons for this house...I chose this property because my neighborhood is so quiet. Town is so close that I can walk or ride my bike. I'm not impacted by what is going on in town when I'm in my home. Plus, I have awesome neighbors!

What makes this house unique

The unique things about Carol's house...I love that I can gaze out my bedroom window in the morning and see Sultan and Grand Turk peaks. I can be in the kitchen, looking out the windows and see Kendall Mountain. You know what I love most about this house? I built a 'Drying Room' under the stairs! After a long day of playing in the mountains, I can put all of my wet gear in there and it will be dry by the morning. All will be ready for another adventuresome day. There is nothing like putting on a toasty, warm pair of boots on a cold winter's morning!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Place - we were able to visit and replace flowers on my husband's brothers gravesite in Hillsdale.

Perfect house for a wonderful visit.

Thanks for sharing your home!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The house and yard were exceptional!! Kitchen and baths excellently stocked! Wonderful appliances, cookware and dishes. Comfortable beds, bedding and plenty of bath towels. We only cooked one meal while there and easily walked to restaurants, bars and shopping the rest of our 3 day stay.

Cannot think of one negative or even a suggestion for improvement!

Boys Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The home was great! We loved the space in the house and the large kitchen. The home's location DT was great for walking to grab a bite/beer. Only a 20 minute drive to Silverton ski area. Would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Amazing Place to stay in Silverton

  • 5 of 5

You have a beautiful well equipped house with everything one would need. Love the gear hanging closet under the steps. Beds were super comfy and the rooms were huge. The only tiny complaint I would make is the heat was set to 54 when we arrived at 10pm at night. Brrr!! Too cold to just jump in bed after a long drive on a cold winter night. Thankfully you had a nice wood burning stove to hover around while we waited for the house to warm up. We would defiantly stay here again on our next trip.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the house! I especially love the gear closet under the stairs, that was a great addition that we put in! I am so sorry that the house was that cold when you arrived! I use a Nest thermostat. I turned it on to warm up the house earlier in the day. It must have clicked off when no one was around. It can be a bit finicky... Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will make sure that it doesn't happen again. I'm pleased you all had a fun time while you were visiting Silverton. I hope you will remember us for your next trip!

Charming home in the middle of mountain paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about this property. It was perfect for our long ski weekend in Silverton. The home is close to town - easy walk to bars and restaurants. It is very spacious and super-comfortable. The owners have done a great job labeling everything and leaving detailed instructions so the answer to any question is easily found. There are two very large bedrooms on the upper level with very comfortable mattresses and plenty of closet space. There is a large, fenced-in yard that was perfect for our two dogs. Overall, this property was perfect - can’t wait to go back!

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house was quiet, clean & had everything you could reasonably expect. It is right in town only 2 blocks from Main and easily walkable to anywhere in town. Our guides told us that the Carol, the owner, is also a donor to the Silverton Youth ski club which was really cool. Owner communication was amazing and she is very nice and flexible.
