Where to Stay

The Schmaltz house

Silverton Property Management
We stayed at the Schmaltz house pictured above and would highly recommend it for your vacation.
This home is brand new and is very nice with a wonderful view of Kendall Mountain and it is the closest home to where the train lets out so you can sit on the front deck and wave at the visitors coming into town.
Contact Nicole Barr for leasing info on this and other fine homes:
