Villa Dallavalle
Ranked #1 of 5 Silverton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 September 2013

I stayed one night in room #6 (of 7 available), which has a king bed and where a dog is allowed. The room has a skylight—but no windows, contrary to the statement on this B&B's Web site that "All rooms include...magnificent views of the surrounding mountains."

If you savor the experience of staying in a B&B, this one will probably charm you (as it has most of the tripadvisor reviewers). The hosts are gracious and hospitable, there is plenty of both family and local history on display, and there are opportunities to mingle with the other guests (a wine-and-cheese social hour, and a group breakfast at 8:00).

The room was claustrophobic, the bed taking up almost almost all of the floor space, with not enough horizontal surfaces on which to put my things...and I was only one person, with one night's accoutrements. Even my small dog ($20 nightly) had few places on the floor, since I had to use most of that area for my stuff. Never mind about the closet-sized toilet/shower and one small wooden chair (no desk).

The lack of a window, combined with inadequate electric lighting, contributed after sundown to this feeling of gloom and confinement. Not a room you would want to spend many hours in, as when waiting out a snowstorm to continue your travel...which does occur in Silverton.

I could hear any activity by my neighbors, such as their child's vocalizations and the fan in their bathroom (which activates automatically when you turn on the light). You'll also hear anyone talking, or just walking, in the hallway, through the transom above your door (all seven rooms are on the second floor, so there is a fair amount of coming-and-going). This is not a lodging for noise-sensitive people.

You're expected to eat breakfast at 8:00 with all the other guests. This wasn't made clear to me when I checked in, nor is interacting with a dozen or more strangers, the first thing in the morning, part of my normal routine. So when I showed up at 9:00, I was offered what little was left of the remaining scrambled eggs (reheated), no other entrees, fruit, and biscuits. Better, maybe, than the "continental" breakfast at a Days Inn, but leftovers weren't what I was expecting.

The owners are sincere and conscientious in trying to provide a certain kind of visitor experience, catering to those who, as mentioned above, prefer the B&B ambience. Travelers who value privacy; quiet; a spacious room; flexible breakfast time; and armchair, desk, closet, microwave/refrigerator, coffeemaker amenities will not find them here.

Room Tip: Look before you leap.

The people are lovely, friendly, and hospitable. Was very clean. My mother has breathing problems and we were concerned with it being an older place it would be musty. Were we pleasantly surprised. No musty smell! This is a great place to stay for someone with breathing problems. Will stay again.

Built in an early 20th century building, the family owned Villa Dallavalle is a very comfortable place to stay. Rooms are small, but very clean and comfortable.
The staff is helpful and very kind: just ask what you need and they will do everything to make your stay pleasnt.
Breakfast included and the hot tub makes a relevant plus.

we stayed at the Villa on 9/1/13, our room was cosy and comfortable.. Hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was to die for! We will return to this lovely little historic hotel soon! While you are in Silverton check out the hillside cemetary it's a real testament to the hardy people who settled this area of Colorado.

My husband and I had a fabulous time staying at the Viila Dallavalle. The house is picture perfect for a mining town and the rooms are filled with antiques that add so much to the experience. Silverton is a charming town with awesome scenery. Lisa is a fabulous hostess and you can't help but have a great experience. Thank you for allowing us to share in in the beauty and history of your home!

Silverton is a unique historic town and Villa Dallavalle is a unique historic inn.The family proprietors are welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts are varied and good quality and the wine and cheese at 5.00pm gives guests chance to meet and chat. We were in room 4 and it met our needs fully.We also used the hot tub.The entire house is period style and provides a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Husband and I decided to take our 14 yo nephew to Silverton and we were looking for a quiet place to relax. After reading the reviews we chose Villa Dellavalle. We were not disappointed!! We chose the "suite" which were two bedrooms that are connected by a doorway... each bedroom had it's own private bath. Both rooms were cozy and our bed was very comfortable. Lisa put out an amazing breakfast spread . Bill and Lisa are great hosts and made us feel very welcome in their family home.
