“Great for Family Reunions”
Reviewed 29 July 2007

We just held a three generation family reunion at the Silver Pick Lodge for 3 days and it was fantastic. We had the entire Lodge and several of the condos for our group of over 60 people ranging in age from 2 months to mid 50's. With the rental of the whole Lodge we got the use of the Columbine room and the kitchen which had all of the plates and kitchen accomodations for the whole group. The 2 hot tubs and the spas were put to good use. The rooms were clean, modern and well kept. Plenty of linens and towel for the crowd. The kids had a great time using the game room. There are a lot of summer time activities in the vicinity including the Alpine Slide and other activities at Durango Mountain Resort, white water rafting and shopping in Durango, 4 wheel drive trails all around, hiking trails, the Lodge's playground for the kids and the nightly bear sightings. The staff was wonderful to deal with. I would recommend it to anyone for a family reunion adventure. We hope to return in a few years.

Had a fantastic stay at the Silverpick and can't recommend it highly enough. It exceeded expectations in all quarters. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful throughout our three week stay. The condo we rented was spacious, clean and incredible value - well equipped kitchen, huge beds and ample living space (the highlight was definitely the open log fire). The lodge itself was cosy and welcoming (more roaring fires!), with plenty of quirky features, a great library and a classy (and quiet) spa area with hot tubs, sauna and steam room - a welcome relief after a hard day on the slopes.

The lodge runs an "on demand" shuttle service to the ski slopes (only a mile away) which was great - no waiting on a timetable! And the slopes themselves were great - plenty of variety, lots of space and hardly any queues (even at weekends). It's developed enough to be easy and comfortable for snow bunnies of all levels, but retains a friendliness and charm that you don't get in bigger resorts.

Must also mention the Sow's Ear restaurant at the Silverpick which was the best place we ate during our month in the US. A great atmosphere and friendly staff who couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The food in both the restaurant and bar were great - fresh, interesting and well prepared by chefs that seem to be really passionate about what they do. The restaurant claims to have the best steak on the mountain, and I can't argue with them. And, the caesar salad is the best I have ever tasted.

The Silverpick is a convenient and good-value place to stay for skiers/snowboarders. But more than that, it has genuine character and warmth.

  • Liked — The welcoming and friendly atmosphere
  • Disliked — For longer stays, it can be a bit isolated without a car

A relative that lives in the area recommended the Silver Pick. I found it hard to believe it could be nice for only $120 per night for a 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo less than 1 miles from the ski slope. I was pleasantly surprised. The unit we got was amazing ... new carpeting, wood stove, fashionable furniture, games, a flat screen TV, two very nice full baths, two bedrooms, new dishes, and an outdoor Jacuzzi a few giant steps from the door. I would highly recommend it. My husband and the kids were also impressed. The staff was very nice as well; and there were convenient laundry facilities in the main lodge.

We wanted somewhere to stay near Durango where we could enjoy the mountains and ride the train to Silverton. And we wanted a good price.

This place fulfilled all those prerequisites. There were no previous reviews on Trip Advisor so we were a little hesitant having become so used to trusting the independent advice from others.

Being outside ski season the Lodge was almost empty and the rooms were cheap. The restaurant was closed but we had an excellent meal at the Olde Schoolhouse just down the road. We used the games room, library, laundry and walking trails.

Pete also booked our train tickets with pickup and drop off at the Rockwood Station near the Lodge. Starting and finishing at Rockwood takes out the less interesting part of the trip.

Highly recommended out of season and we wouldn't mind visiting sometime during the ski season as well.
