Spent a night here while I was snowshoeing in Silverton. Wonderful place!!! The hospitality was incredible. The hot tub was super relaxing, and felt very nice. It was really like staying at a friend's house rather than a hotel. Also, the food is incredible. Beautifully prepared and delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!! Especially couples, fairly romantic

When we came back from dinner they had chocolate minicupcakes..yum! Used the jacuzzi...so relaxing... Breakfast was delightful...mini quiches, fruit crepe.

Hands down best B&B experience you will ever have! We went to Silverton for the Whiteout 10 Hour Fat Bike Race and had the most incredible experience at the Alma House. Betty and Albert were the most gracious, accommodating, kind-hearted hosts. From check-in to check-out it was a dream come true. We stayed in Room 10 which was splendid, and...

I've never stayed at a place like this before. I usually opt for more modern facilities. However, I was blown away by the history, condition, and especially the hospitality of the innkeepers Betty and Albert. In addition to the extra touches, like coffee and treats waiting when we woke up to the amazing, and perfectly-sized breakfast they served to fuel...

My husband bought a non refundable guided ski pass to Silverton. Watching the weather he was concerned about the pass closing and decided to come up the night before.

I believe we were the first customers for the new manager, Albert, and we were treated like royalty. He is an interesting and super friendly person who really went out of his way to make it a nice stay for us.The room was beautiful with lots of historical features and flawlessly clean. The breakfast was over the top amazing.

From what I am reading here, they've been BUSY upgrading/improving many things, because NONE of the former complaints were evident on my visit this month. Believe me I've stayed in The Raffles, and a medieval castle, resorts, other B&B's--so I think I've got relatively...
