About the property

All returning guest for 2017 please contact us for your Special Rate.

Welcome to SilverHouse, high country luxury in Colorado gold country. Located within walking distance from downtown, SilverHouse engages the senses with five individually appointed bedrooms (each with queen bed, private bath and balcony--four upstairs and one downstairs/no balcony); large great room; full kitchen; patio and ample off-street parking.

Guest Cottage please inquire on availability.

The interior design concept has a European influence using vivid colors, creamy plaster-work, dramatic heights and grand detail to whisk cares away. The great room and kitchen are located downstairs. Flooded with the sunlight that pours in from the windows or glowing under shaded wall sconces, the 912-square-foot with 30 foot ceilings in the great room manages to look sleek and welcoming.

The home is not handicap accessible, but there is a deck ramp that leads into the house. Comfortable beds & linens are provided and the home is well stocked. The home has cable TV and a full laundry room.

Area residents are typically outdoor-oriented and recreational activities include horseback riding, cross-country skiing, golf, tennis, fishing and much more. Nearby Mueller State Park, Pike’s Peak and Pike National Forest are the source of hiking opportunities, ranging from nature walks to back country trekking. A popular wildlife watching area, Mueller State Park is home to elk, black bear, eagles and hawks. With the park’s groves of aspen trees, each season is a delight for photographers and sightseers. For the rugged individual Garden Of The Gods is a 1350-acre geologic formation of jutting and eroded sandstone peaks ideal for hiking, climbing and horseback riding situated in nearby Colorado Springs. Suited more for cross-country than downhill skiing, Pike National Forest is as accessible in winter as summer.

Wildlife viewing is a favorite past-time to include the town’s resident donkey herd, distant relatives of the original donkeys used in the Gold Rush days.

For the more “soft” adventure enthusiast a myriad of entertainment activities abound in Cripple Creek and the surrounding areas, such as casual and fine dining, city-wide carriage rides, city-wide shuttle, Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, historic museum, low stakes gaming casinos, melodrama theatre, Molly Kathleen Gold Mine, scenic highways and off road routes, shopping, and of course….rest and relaxation in the Rockies!

11 days at the Silver House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Cripple Creek at the Silver House. With five bedrooms, massive dining and family rooms, we had plenty of room for the six of us staying there. As Wayne said, air conditioning wasn't necessary during our stay, opened the patio doors and everything cooled down quickly at night. We did wish there we're screens on the patio doors. The fourth of July fireworks we're spectacular, sitting on the patio we had a front row seat to the music and light show. Very easy access to the downtown via a shuttle or a short three block stroll.

We had a birthday party at the Silver House with family and friends. The house is beyond description! Who would have thought you would find this kind of accommodation in Cripple Creek! It is spacious, beautifully decorated, and the furniture is spectacular. The house was clean, had everything, and more, that we needed and Wayne was wonderful to work with. The outside seating area is wonderful and great that everyone had their own bathroom. I would highly recommend this house to anyone with a large group that is looking for a very special treat. Also very close to downtown!

Our Meeting in the Mountains ...

  • 5 of 5

Needing a suitable and comfortable place for five couples, we discovered the Silverhouse Bed and Breakfast in Colorado Creek, Colorado! Offering more than 5000 feet of space, five bedrooms and five full baths, the Silverhouse was just perfect. Within walking distance of theater, museums, a narrow gauge railroad, and surrounded by mountains - there was plenty to do when we were not in business meetings. A large dining table accommodated our meal needs, and a full kitchen allowed us to cook to our heart's content! We recommend this VRBO to anyone looking for a great place to stay in historic Cripple Creek, CO.

We enjoyed our time here and we plan on returning!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 15 stayed at the house and cottage and loved our visit to Cripple Creek. We had lots of room to spread out, but still were able to be together as a group. The patio area was huge and the BBQ perfect for grilling up our meals. Close enough to town to walk to, but nice and quiet. Plenty of supplies to make our stay homey and clean up easy. We enjoyed our time here and we plan on returning! Thank you!
