CABIN ON CREEK WITH MOUNTAIN VIEWS PERFECT HOME BASE FOR FAMILY VACATION

Nathrop Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Enjoy the best of both worlds----peaks and creek. You get spectacular mountain views and a rushing creek all from the comfort of a private cozy cabin set on three acres of meadow and woodlands.

This well-appointed home has all the amenities. It was furnished with a family in mind, but is equally comfortable for a couples’ getaway. The charming décor is rustic with a touch of retro.

The homey living room has a river-rock fireplace, comfy couch, club chairs with ottomans and a chair-and a half recliner. Two six-foot windows face the mountains. The living room also has DirecTV, DVD player, stereo, a collection of board games and jigsaw puzzles, and wireless high-speed internet which reaches all rooms and even to the creek.

The kitchen is fully furnished with two sets of dishes, pots and pans, bake ware, mixer, crock pots, rice cooker, blender, electric griddle and more. The kitchen window above the sink looks onto the creek and aspen. Next to another six-foot window is a pine dining table which seats eight, and comes with placemats and bandana napkins. Right off the kitchen is a full-sized washer and dryer. All linens are furnished, including beach towels for water activities.

The main floor has one bedroom with a full-sized bed and a full bath (tub/shower). Upstairs is another full bath (tub/shower) and two more bedrooms. The large upstairs master is 20’ x 20’ and has a vaulted ceiling and king-sized bed. The decorative fireplace is set with candles for a romantic escape. The room also has a ceiling fan and a sliding glass door which leads onto a deck with bench-seating and mountain views. The second upstairs bedroom has three cozy twin beds and ceiling fan. Plenty of closet, dresser and bathroom storage space will accommodate your belongings.

Back downstairs, on the wrap-around deck you will find a gas grill and a dining table with umbrella overlooking the creek. On the mountain side is a bench and side table, perfect for morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset. Step off the deck into the aspen shade for the picnic table, fire pit and Adirondack bench by the creek.

The area borders millions of acres of National Forest wilderness for hiking. The cabin is just minutes from the best rafting in the west, fly fishing, mineral hot springs, trail rides and golf. Visit the nearby ghost town of St. Elmo and feed chipmunks from your hand and rent a jeep or ATVs.

Sample both mountain towns of Salida and Buena Vista—the cabin is exactly between these Arkansas River tourist getaways---just a 15 minute drive in either direction. Enjoy the many restaurants, including the Boathouse Cantina, where you can sip a drink and watch kayakers on the Arkansas River. Amicas microbrewery offers wood-fired pizza and salads. Currents restaurant, owned by an Iowa couple, offers good food and live music many evenings. Patio Pancakes is worth the early morning drive into town to join the locals for an unforgettable breakfast. Afterwards, stroll along the river and browse the numerous antique mall, art galleries and shops.

Plan your own getaway, or we can provide you with links to area activities and attractions.

About The Owner

We live in the Kansas City area, and enjoy exploring Colorado. In the fall, we hike trails to mountain lakes and waterfalls, and we enjoy watching the aspens turn golden. During the winter and spring break we ski Monarch, relax at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and return to the cabin for crock pot steak soup. Summers are awesome for white water rafting and enjoying area festivals including FIBArk (First in Boating on the Arkansas), Art Walk, Brewers Rendezvous, Fine Arts Festival, Gold Rush Days and Fourth of July fireworks in Riverside Park.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1999

Why The Owner chose Nathrop

We grew up in a small town, and love returning to Salida and Buena Vista for the community feel. This area has all that a Colorado vacation can offer and it is very affordable. Locals call the Upper Arkansas River Valley the Banana Belt; the geography and weather patterns bring more moderate winters.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin lets you get away without being too remote. Drive an hour north to the historic mining town of Leadville and bring home a pizza dinner from High Mountain Pies. Take a day trip and picnic to the Great Sand Dunes, and then on the way home soak in Joyful Journeys hot springs where you can watch the Sangre de Cristo range turn pink at sunset. Or drive over the Continental divide to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, an awesome geological wonder.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Wolff cabin is a gem set at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains . The vistas are spectacular directly through the living room window and from the decks. The cabin has all the modern conveniences of home along with resource materials for exploring the surrounding mountains, towns, and rivers. We found the cabin clean and very functional for our family of five. We have gone snow skiing at Monarch Pass , rafting in the nearby Arkansas river, scaled several nearby 14,000 peaks, dined at restaurants of great Colorado charm, and toured the ghost town from the gold rush days. The balance of nature and community is perfect!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed this past week at this property. It has breathtaking views of snowcapped mountains and an amazing rushing stream, all viewed from the multiple porches of the home. There were plenty of things to do around on day trips, or stay in, relax and enjoy the scenery. There was plenty of land around the house for my daughter to explore. We spent most days outside, but as far as inside the home, we had everything we needed. It is a great choice for a getaway- I wish we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Thanks much for the kind words. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the deck and enjoying the rushing creek--unless it's sitting on the master bedroom deck contemplating the sunset over Mount Antero.

We got a kick out of the photos you sent of your daughter exploring our property. Hope you come back someday to our cabin home.

Perfect in every way!

The house was perfect for our vacation. It was fully stocked with everything we needed from the kitchen to the bedding to wireless internet! Traveling so far with 4 kids can be intimidating but knowing that we didn't even need to bring towels or cooking supplies was priceless. We had nothing but excellent communication with the owners throughout our vacation planning and stay. We enjoyed watching deer in the yard and the amazing mountain views. We loved being so close to whitewater rafting and the hot springs during our stay. I would highly recommend this place!

I took my family on vacation summer 2007 and had the pleasure of staying at the Wolff cabin outside Salida, CO. Since the cabin is located at the foot of a mountain, the views are breathtaking. Amenities are the same as any home, including what’s needed in the kitchen. I consider the home rustic which is the perfect atmosphere for ‘getting away’. A gentle stream runs along the backyard, and the nearby communities offer many exciting opportunities for recreation and dining. We'll definitely be back again!

My family has stayed at this cabin twice in the last 6 years. My children were 1 and 3 on our first visit, and 6 and 8 on our second visit. In short, we love the place!

The setting is very beautiful with lovely views of the mountains and also a wonderful creek (which you can hear from the house -- what a water feature!). The area is quite peaceful -- all the homes in the vicinity are on estate-sized lots. The cabin also is well-situated -- you can enjoy both Salida and Buena Vista within 15 minutes' drive (and a liquor store and nice restaurant are even closer).

The cabin is very comfortable, with nice mattresses and sheets, and it is very clean. It is well-equipped for a family, with many dishes, utensils, serving pieces, etc.(unlike at some rental properties, which are equipped with 4 plates and 3 forks). There also are other bonus items, like games and some outdoor gear.

My family enjoyed many outdoor activities in the area including the hot springs, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and white water rafting. It's an outdoor lover's paradise. We also visited the Great Sand Dunes National Park, only a couple hours' drive, and worth every minute. We highly recommend it!

The Wolffs are great owners. They love the area and are available during the stay for questions / advice on how to make your Colorado trip enjoyable. And they are respectful of your privacy if you're more of a do-it-yourselfer.

We highly recommend booking this cabin.
