Edward Adams House B&B

729 South Water Street , Silverton, OR 97381 USA (Show map)


Edward Adams House is a perfectly restored six room Queen Anne Victorian home designed and built in 1890 by Swedish master craftsman and millwright, Magnus Ek. Our House is a Silverton Heritage Landmark. Guests may choose from three different rooms. Each of our queen-bedded guest rooms is furnished with turn of the century antiques and private bathrooms. Upstairs is an extensive library with an inviting love seat to sink into. The parlor is home to a 1920 Steinway grand piano, a Kimball pump organ, vintage settees and a real wood-burning fireplace. We are a short walk to downtown Silverton yet removed enough to ensure a restful retreat and memorable getaway.

Historic B & B

3.2 on July 11, 2018

The house, the gardens, and the host are lovely. There are three bedrooms and a quirky library including music records with a turntable. We stayed in the room with the hot tub in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable; the linens and towels were plush. The house is within walking distance to town which is a plus. Nancy served a divine egg souffle, store-bought muffins with homemade jam, garnished with fresh berries for breakfast. My husband was uncomfortable because the walls are so thin, you can hear every step your neighbor takes. I was grossed out by the bugs who shared my tub with me. The house needs a really good deep cleaning. The area rugs were dirty, there was dust on all ledges and the windows and lace curtains need to be washed. The house has the ability to be better after a good cleaning.

Thank you Nancy for making our stay amazing!

My grandson and I stayed here on our way to Grant's Pass after a long train ride from Milwaukee to Portland. It was perfect in EVERY way, and Nancy is an amazing host, and person! Thank you for adding to our very special memories of our trip! I hope to get there again someday! Cheryl Monroe

This BnB is a gem. The house is a historic novelty that has been decorated and furnished in just the right way. It's a in beautiful, quiet town with lots to see and do. Our host was lots of fun to talk to and really inviting, treating us with a tour of the property, delicious breakfasts, and lots of tasty snacks. We enjoyed our time here and hope to go back.

A Victorian Gem In Oregon's Heart

This beautifully restored and maintained house is a step back in time. Inn owner Nancy is an impeccable hostess, excellent chef and baker, and highly knowledgeable about Silverton's history and surrounds. The house features a Steinway piano and hosts many musical events (Nancy is a professional classical musician), original art glass windows and inlaid flooring, a music/library, a charming garden and gazebo, and much more. Nancy's chocolate chip macaroons were some of the best cookies I've ever had, btw. The excellence of this property and the food were unexpected, but much appreciated and enjoyed. Silverton is the gateway to rapturously scenic hiking in Silver Falls State Park and countryside drives through the region's famed Christmas tree farms. Edward Adams House is the perfect place to stay while enjoying Silverton and its offerings, and we hope to come back soon!

Everything about this wonderful B&B exceeded our expectations!

Recommending Edward Adams House

4.6 on November 30, 2014

Being "Foodies," we loved the homemade granola with almonds and cashews, the poppyseed bread, the citrus marmalade made by our hostess's sister, the mango smoothie, and especially the Basil Egg Puff. Everything about our two breakfasts was beautifully presented. Deep French-roast coffee arrived hot and on-time, and our observant hostess even provided a larger cream pitcher the second morning. We appreciated the authentic, inviting decor without the "fluff 'n stuff" that can make a man uncomfortable. Because Edward Adams House B&B is one we will recommend (and have already), we offer these suggestions: update the wireless router with one upstairs as well as downstairs; increase the lighting in the Sara Jane room. None of our electronic devices (phones/iPads - 2 ea.) would hold connection upstairs. Husband believes the "mass" of this historical building (lath and plaster, solid wood, etc.) prevents a good signal upstairs. The dark beauty of Sara Jane's room is restful, but a brighter ceiling light would be appreciated for dressing and packing. Edward Adams House is a wonderful place to stay whether passing through the area or visiting.

I've stayed at a few B&Bs over the years and the Edward Adams House is by far the best. Nancy has created an elegant yet comfortable inn furnished with beautiful antiques, comfortable beds, and other amenities to ensure your stay is wonderful. She's the consummate host and her breakfast is to die for. We especially appreciated Nancy's warm welcome upon our arrival and the fresh hot coffee left quietly by our door in the morning. The Edward Adams House is a true gem located within walking distance of historic downtown Silverton, and a short drive from The Oregon Garden, Silver Falls State Park, and other nearby Oregon treasures. I highly recommend staying here!

Charming place to stay in equally charming Silverton

We stayed two nights in the Edward Adams House. The rooms are beautiful and true to the Victorian period. Our host, Nancy, is inviting and warm and also a worldly person. We recommend this B&B heartedly.

A wonderful get away for the night

We recently spent the night at the Adams House as a "mini vacation". What a wonderful place - beautiful furnishings, and very clean! Everything was perfect. The owner was very conscientious and accommodating - really went above and beyond anything we've experienced before. Highly recommended.

A jewel in the middle of a gorgeous small town.

Comfortable with outstanding ambiance. Nancy is the consummate host, friendly and considerate. The breakfast was delicious and relaxing. We came here for rest and relaxation and we certainly attained it.
