Through the years more people were finding out about our paradise near Almont Colorado in the Taylor Canyon. There is a queen bedroom on the main floor as well as a sleeper sofa. What makes these unique are the loft areas above which open to the main floor and looks out of the front picture windows. We have guests that have been coming to the resort for over 30 years and have taken a liking to the newer accommodations due to the fact that they have grandchildren now that come up and love to stay in the lofts.
One of our guests is an avid fly fisherman. He sits at the kitchen table or out on the front deck and ties flies before heading up to try his luck on Spring Creek. He has a “special” section that apparently has never let him down but don’t ask him where it is because he won’t tell you. If fishing is what you are after there is an abundance of water available, all within 15 miles from your front door.
Cabin 3 is the 2nd unit built by the gentleman that settled in the canyon with his family. It was built in 1939 with true log and beams which makes for a very cozy stay. The living area has a floor to ceiling rock fireplace that provides great ambience for relaxing, watching tv, reading or any family activity that you choose to do. This cabin has a fully equipped kitchen that you can prepare wonderful meals to enjoy at the dinner table or out on the deck or take up the Canyon for a picnic. The cabin also has a full bathroom area for your convenience. We have experienced this cabin during the winter months. Last year Almont experienced the snow storm of the century receiving over 13 feet of snow in the month of January alone. We were living in Cabin 3 due to a fire at our house. As the snow began to fall and pile up outside, the cabin became a winter wonderland. Snowmobiling from the cabin to the high country, snow shoeing and cross country skiing right out the door made for an amazing time. We put up our Christmas tree that we cut down and hung stockings on the mantle. We also strung lights outside on the rails along the entryway. A memory that won’t be forgotten and hope that others will be able to experience by staying with us as well. With our snow removal equipment access to town was never a problem.

Silent Spring Resort began with a small rustic cabin back in 1932, by a gentleman that loved the canyon so much that he wanted to have a place for his family to settle. He built this one bedroom home with horizontal logs, beams and character. The cabin has one queen bedroom with a queen pull out couch in the cozy front room. There is a full kitchen equipped with everything you need to fix a meal for your family. There also is a full bathroom and plenty of storage for your summer and winter activities. There is a large picture window on the end of the cabin up against the forest that is great for watching the deer pass by and the hummingbirds feed as well. I was living in the cabin last summer and was taking a nap in the comfortable living area when I woke up and noticed a motion out the window. It was a little black bear out for his normal stroll. He went around the cabin and down to some raspberry bushes for the afternoon. According to the summer residents in the canyon and visitors to the resort, he makes this stroll often down the hiking trail up above the resort that skirts a creek that flows during the spring and becomes “silent” in the summer and fall and is a common attraction that everyone enjoys.
