Come stay at the MOUNTAIN HOUSE - MSI’s lodging facility located in the heart of Silverton!
The Mountain House is a perfect home base for a variety of pursuits in the San Juan Mountains - summer or winter.
MSI has provided affordable lodging for education, research and non-profit users since September 2004. We frequently host graduate students, university professors, geology field camps, professional retreats, and many others. If you think our Mountain House facility may meet the needs of your group, please contact us for rates and availability.
The Mountain House sleeps 12 in a mixture of dorm and private rooms. For larger groups, MSI arranges for additional sleeping space at the nearby locations (hostel, cabins, rental homes). The facility includes a full kitchen, gas grill, wireless internet, and plenty of space for informal gatherings both inside and in the beautiful backyard. There is also a large multi-purpose room, complete with tables and folding chairs, that can be used for gatherings of any kind (meetings, presentations, yoga).
MSI Americorps Vista volunteer, Whitney Gaskill, conducts a PikaNet training in the multi-purpose room at the Mountain House.
