About the property

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 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!

Lovely & Impeccable Accommodations at the Silver House Cripple Creek

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and myself recently stayed at the SilverHouse in downtown Cripple Creek for an extended weekend family gathering on our nearby land. The house easily and comfortably accommodated all of our family members with ample space. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom, which made sharing the house with a large group very enjoyable. We were originally drawn to the home for it's location (close proximity to our family land) and for the sheer size of the home that would allow all of my siblings and myself to stay under one roof together. The house itself is even nicer and more spacious than the pictures reveal. The entire home is in impeccable condition and very comfortable and clean. The beds & bedding were extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were stocked with ample towels and toiletries ( including a hairdryer - doesn't mention that on the site). Better than a luxury hotel. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Ample supplies for cooking & entertaining, including a large dining table that we gathered around every night. It also has a BBQ and patio area with plenty of seating that we thoroughly enjoyed as we gazed upon the spectacular mountain views. We were also so close to downtown that we could see it from our front door. You could literally walk to downtown in 3 minutes. Great wifi and cell reception. Wayne, the home owner, is such a wonderful, nice & accommodating man. He went above & beyond to make sure that our stay was spectacular, and it was. He returned calls promptly and even made sure that we had extra propane in the BBQ tank. The lawn was beautifully manicured and had ample parking for all of our cars. You can tell that he really takes care of his property and really cares about you having a wonderful stay in his home. I can't say enough great things about this house or the owner. I am a very particular person and have high standards when stayin in a hotel or rental property and the SilverHouse met and exceeded every expectation that I had. If you are looking to stay in Cripple Creek or the surrounding area, and you have a group of people that you would like to all stay under one roof together, look no further, this is your place! With 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, it was less expensive for us 5 couples to stay in this luxury home than a nearby hotel. Thank you Wayne, our family had a wonderful & memorable time & we will be renting it again for our next family reunion

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.
