Valhalla in Silverton!
[PLEASE NOTE: Valhalla is the name of the Paradise Retreat for the Nordic gods. What a truly special place for you to explore, recreate in and rejuvenate. Please, enjoy! Bill & Chris Gardner]
Bring your family and friends to stay in Valhalla (Mountain Paradise) at 9,318 feet above sea level in Silverton, Colorado!
Our 1898 Miner’s remodeled home on a huge corner lot with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths awaits your discovery. The property is located on the old “Poverty Flats” of the 1890’s where the first Black Miner built this sturdy home for his family. The irony is that the Grandest Views of the Valley are located on Poverty Flats with stunning vistas of 5 towering San Juan Mountains right from the living room and kitchen areas.
Valhalla sleeps up to 10 vacationers – 2 in each bedroom and 2 on the Queen size sofa sleeper. Each bedroom is named after the mountain peak it faces: The Kendall, Boulder, Snowden and Sultan Rooms. The 3 upstairs bedrooms have their own shower and bathroom. Downstairs, the bathroom suite features a modern
laundry room and a steam / shower comfortably seating 3 for those apres-ski or after hike warm-ups.
The main floor has a modern kitchen, a large oak dining table, and a living room that features a Massage Chair, seating for 8 and a wall hung TV with satellite services. The living room opens onto The San Juan Sunroom – an intimate Victorian sitting room with floor to ceiling windows providing one of the most stunning mountain views in Colorado – just right for morning coffee or an evening drink!
The oversized corner yard is completely fenced making Valhalla a dog friendly retreat. A large barbeque, comfortable outdoor furniture, aspen and spruce trees, and summer wildflowers provide an alpine haven for family & friends barbeques and outdoor living. Valhalla has off-street driveway parking for 4 vehicles and fence-side parking for 4 more.
Come, hike, bike, climb, ski, snow-shoe, and REJUVENATE at Valhalla!Specifications
