Guestbook comments from the owner
We've had the most wonderful time here this week. We went skiing at Ski Cooper 3 times, soaked at the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs 2 times (love, love, love soaking in the creek). Had great pizza and beer at Amica's in Salida and we've spent lots of time just admiring the view of the chalk cliffs. This is a very special place!

We're two professional couples and a 13 year old son with a great love of the outdoors. We're experienced boaters who have floated all the great rivers in the American West.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

We love the Arkansas River Valley and especially the area by the Chalk Cliffs at the base of Mt. Princeton. Our cabin is in a quiet peaceful area, yet close to all the fun stuff available to do in this area. Every time we get back to the cabin after a day of activity, it's like returning to a retreat.

The quiet and solitude at our cabin are exceptional. We're off the main road going to St. Elmo, so we don't get any road noise. We can walk to fishing at Wright's Lake and Chalk Lake is about a 5 minute drive up the road. Both lakes are well stocked with trout. If we decide to go rafting, we're close to the put-in for Browns Canyon. We enjoy happy hour on our large front deck while taking in the wildlife and the spectacular views of the chalk cliffs. Horseback riding trips from Deer Valley Ranch pass by our cabin at least twice a day during the summer. Also, the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs are very close, if we decide to take the day off from mountain biking or fishing. It's truly a great place.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Chalk cliffs was the perfect spot for our extended family gathering. The spacious, well equipped cabin accommodated us all very well, and the view out the front window is amazing! Fish freshly caught in Chalk Lake provided a number of tasty meals, though the gas grill did not work. The high water level of the rapidly moving channel behind the cabin did require diligent watching of the younger set in their gleeful exploration of the grounds. Would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Hi Fred. Thanks for the positive response. Sorry that you were having difficulty with the grill. From our conversation it sounds like the igniter. We'll make sure that gets fixed. Take care, Ken

Enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Everything we needed was there. Only problem we had was the bathtub drain did not drain well and the shower head did not flow real good, but luckily I am a plumber and was able to clean the drain out and clean the shower head. Also the wood for the wood stove was wet so could not start a fire in the fireplace . Might want to leave some wood by the stove so it is dry. But had a wonderful time and would recommend this cabin to everyone.

We had a wonderful time at "The Pines at Chalk Cliffs". It is a very comfortable home in the mountains, plenty of room for our entire family. I would recommend it to anyone looking for for a relaxing, beautiful get away.

MOUNTAIN VIEWS, AMPLE SPACE, QUIET RESTFUL CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was perfect for our family vacation. We were out in the country, able to hike and bike straight from the cabin to the Colorado trail and others just beyond. Mt Princeton lies just beyond the beautiful chalk cliffs that you see every morning from the front deck. Perfect companion to a cup off coffee. Horse back riding is a couple miles away, rafting on the Arkansas river is amazing, and mountain bike trails abound in this valley and all along the range up to BV and down by Salida. Very comfortable bedrooms. Large living space and big kitchen with everything you need to cook daily. We would definitely return to this lovely cabin and this amazing valley.

GREAT PLACE FOR A GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a few nights during Christmas break. It was a good base for skiing at Monarch and soaking in Mt Princeton Hot Springs. Spectacular views of the sunrise on the Chalk Cliffs. We were greeted by a herd of deer when we checked in. The place was great and more than spacious for our family of 6. I highly recommend it!
