Come and Enjoy!

The House on Old Mill Road has a unique connection to the area’s mining history.  This house was owned by Emperius Mining Company and was used primarily for the mill's superintendent and family’s housing needs. Emperius Mining Company, who controlled most of the mines in the area, purchased the mill just south of town in 1945.  In the 1960s, the Commodore Mine was still being worked by the Emperius. In the 1970s, following a boom, silver prices declined and mining activities scaled back.  Eventually, the mill closed and the house was no longer needed.  Dick Kolisch, a long time silver miner and his wife, Alyce Ann, both Creede natives, purchased and restored the house.   

Tourists had come to the Creede area for many years, but in small numbers.  As mining declined and most mines eventually closed, Creede's focus turned to becoming a destination for visitors.    

Originally, the Kolisches provided overflow rentals for the legendary Soward's Ranch. The owner, Margaret Lamb (rest in peace) and Alyce Ann were dear friends.   Within the decade, The House on Old Mill Road began providing vacation rentals, independently.  The house has recently been modernized and revitalized for your enjoyment.  

A fully furnished kitchen, washer and dryer, free Wi-Fi, satellite television, stove, refrigerator and an outdoor propane grill, are provided.  

The House is conveniently located within about a mile from Creede's downtown area.
