SILVERTHRONE — Silverthorne’s new hotel, The Pad, made a step forward as Himmelman Construction broke ground on the site Wednesday, Nov. 27. The hotel is on the former site of the Robinson Dairy building, 491 Rainbow Drive in Silverthorne, which was demolished with repurposing of the building materials. Full construction begins in mid-December, and the construction is anticipated to take one year. 

The Pad will be a 36-room, 101-bed hotel with hostel-style accommodations, including dormitory rooms, private rooms, micro-rooms and hostel-style bed rentals. The hotel also will include a rooftop deck and hot tub, several common areas, patios, a bar, gear storage and event space. The hotel’s bar and lobby will be open to the public. 

“The Pad will not only be for tourists but will be a home base for a wide range of community activities and events,” owner Rob Baer said in a statement. “It is our genuine hope that The Pad will be a hub for both tourists and local residents to make new friends and create new adventures.”
