The space

This house was built in the early 70’s, by the electrician for the first boring of the Eisenhower Tunnel, it was built to resemble a mine tipple, reflecting the local history of the area. It is situated in one of the older neighborhoods in Silverthorne, on the side of Ptarmigan Mountain. It is tucked away, yet the location is close to everything. My mother ran the house as Ptarmigan Mountain Bed and Breakfast during the 80’s, and I now carry on the torch, as I have renovated the house and reopened it as Ptarmigans Nest Bed and Breakfast ( July 2015). I guess this makes me a third generation innkeeper!

The Ptarmigans Nest Bed and Breakfast has 5 rooms. Three of the rooms have private baths, while the remaining two rooms share a bath and are dormitory style. Guests enjoy the use of a full kitchen, music room (feel free to play our piano, or ukulele!), living room, dining area by a wood burning stove, two decks, an outdoor gas grill, and a sauna. It is very private as we have our own separate living quarters. We also have a small greenhouse in back, that you are more than welcome to check out.

We do love and allow pets, however there is a $25 fee per pet and they are not allowed to be left in the rooms unattended (sorry, no exceptions), there is a great place nearby called The Dillon Dog Den, which has great doggy daycare services.

Guest access

We are just a couple miles off of 1-70. Many guests arrive to Summit County in an airport van, several different companies offer door to door service. Colorado Mountain Express, Summit Express, Fresh Tracks Transportation, Mountain Shuttle etc, Rates vary, depending on the time of year. We are an hour and a half drive from the Denver International Airport.

We have the best of both world here, as we are right in Silverthorne, so there are many activities within walking or riding distance, we are minutes from 5 major ski areas and many beautiful mountains. We are tucked back into a peaceful neighborhood and we have beautiful views of The Rocky Mountains.

Interaction with guests

We serve a gratuitous, simple breakfast. We use food that is high quality, organic, gluten free and mostly local (we buy from a local organic farmer). Breakfast is not super fancy, we keep it simple.

We live on the garden level, so we are always nearby for questions or concerns. As I was born and raised here, feel free to ask about hikes, things to do, discounted lift tickets, etc etc.

The neighbourhood

The Ptarmigans Nest B n B, has excellent views of Buffalo Mt, Red Mt, and Peak 1. The Ptarmigans Nest B n B, is a short walk away from the Blue River (with gold medal fishing), the bike path system, the library, The Silverthorne Recreation Center, Rainbow Park, The Silverthorne Factory Stores, The Summit Stage (Summits free bus line), Uncle Johns Farm Stand, hiking trails, and a handful of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops.

Getting around

The Summit Stage is a free local bus that has several bus stops between 3-6 blocks away. It goes to all of the local ski resorts in Summit County (Keystone, Copper Mt, A-Basin, and Breckenridge). If you are going to Vail or Loveland you will definitely need to arrange transportation (sometimes carpooling with someone here may be an option). The bike path is two blocks away...from there you can ride around Lake Dillon or even go all the way to Vail or even Glenwood Springs!

Holly goes out of her way to think of special details like her homemade tea and her amazing breakfasts and coffee. She will bend over backwards to accommodate your needs and is always available by phone if she is not in her apartment. She is a warm, kind person who can mix with any group. Her house is almost like a hostel, with people coming and going so it can be a little busy depending on who is staying, but most of the people who stayed this weekend are folks I hope to stay in touch with for years to come! Thank you, Holly!

I've stayed with Airbnb before, but I've always rented the entire place. This is my first time renting a room. My total experience was terrific. Holly was a wonderful and accommodating hostess who offered several useful hints (no small thing, since I've stayed in Dillon at least 12 times and thought--mistakenly--that I knew everything). The room was well furnished and comfortable, and the breakfasts a delight. Kudos, Holly, and hope to see you in the future.

Holly is a great host, and great accommodations in the wolf den. Very communicative to get checked in. I enjoyed starting the day with a healthy breakfast and coffee and chatting with other guests. Her place is clean and neat and everything was as described in the listing. Hope to stay again before ski season is over.

Holly is an amazing host and her house is cozy and welcoming. The location is close to free buses to the resorts and not far from places to eat and drink. Holly does a great job of being friendly and helpful as well as giving you the space to relax and enjoy yourself. Her breakfasts are always great. Perfect for a day on the mountain. I hope to come back soon!
