The Avon: Hotel

The road to Silverton from both north and south takes you along the scenic Million Dollar Highway. The million dollar views are punctuated by jagged peaks and steep alpine terrain.

The Avon is a historic hotel, live music venue, bar and cafe in charming Silverton, CO. Built in 1904 and restored in 2017, The Avon is your basecamp to adventure in Southwest, Colorado.


Daniel Clute


Restoring The Avon is the brainchild of Daniel who fell in love with the San Juan Mountains and Silverton through annual winter ski trips. When he noticed the "For Sale" sign hanging on the aging brick building the seed was planted. Dan saw the potential for a thriving establishment in the aging shell of the historic property and has worked diligently to make this a reality.
