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.
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 1012-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!
