About Mary or Dave drawbert
Dave and I are recently retired and live in Breckenridge, Co. He worked as an attorney for 35 years and I worked in healthcare. We are hoping to spend more time in Salida now that we are able. We are motorcycle and bicycle enthusiasts. Our winter interests include alpine skiing and nordic skiing. Opportunities for all of these sports are abundant in the Salida area.
Mary or Dave drawbert purchased this house in 2007
Why Mary or Dave drawbert chose Salida
We fell in love with Salida for so many reasons. The weather there is so much warmer than where we live ( Breckenridge,Co) yet we are only 75 miles away. The ambiance in Salida captured our hearts immediately. All of the great art galleries and restaurants are definitely a plus. We love the 'high desert' scenery. Our home has unparalleled 'views' that attracted us to this particular home. The proximity to Monarch ski area helped us decide on Salida!
What makes this house unique
Incredible views can be enjoyed form every window in our home. The view of Monarch Pass from the front huge window of the house are extraordinary! Wildlife is everywhere, especially mule deer. While the feeling of the home is 'countryish', Salida's downtown area is only 1.5 miles away. The roads in our neighborhood are all paved- perfect for walkers. Just down the road is Sand Lake - a small lake with plenty of geese and ducks for the little ones to feed. This lake is also stocked with trout.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dave & Mary, Thank you for the use of your home. Wehad a woderful vacation and enjoyed your place. The location was great. We rafted 2 days, zip-lined,4-wheeled, hiked, went to the Hot springs, and enjoyed the town.It was so nice to come back in the evenings and grill out on your deck.What a nice breeze. You were right about not needing air-conditioning.How I wish it were like that in Iowa1 The views were great also. There was one deer that we thought was going to ask to move in he was there so much! We would love to stay again sometime and will recommend your place to anyone we know who is going out your way. Thanks again, Jan
