The inn is very easy to find, just one block off the main street (Silverton is a very small town so I guess almost everything is easy to find).
At first, nobody was there, not even a notice. But after a couple of minutes the innkeepers welcomed us to their inn. The keepers were pretty new in town, because the owners had some health issues. Therefore they were in the middle of getting to know the whole property. The kitchen was not running, so there was no breakfast (but we did get a small discount as a compensation). We had breakfast at the black bear cafe next morning - we can recommend that !
Our room was pretty nice and looked (the inn's name already says it) historic, but with all the amenities you need (remote controlled fire place, flatscreen tv, ...).
All the restaurants and shops in Silverton "downtown" are in walking distance, although there were only a few open at that time (we were there in early season).
Now the only complaint (and therefore just 4 stars) was the bed. It was so extremly soft, you had to watch that you don't fall out. Therefore we had a hard time to catch some sleep.
Maybe they have better mattresses in some of their other rooms, we don't know.
But that wouldn't keep us from returning to this wonderful and charming inn !
