About Kathy McCasky

Well fell in love with the Arkansas Valley many, many years ago when a day hike on majestic Mt. Princeton turned into an overnight adventure. We found our 'Little Slice of Heaven' while camping and tooling around on the fire roads in the National Forest right behind our property. Our best memories have been hiking, ATV'ing, skiing and snow shoeing and exploring this miraculous, unspoiled area. We treat our guests as family that we actually like to come visit 😊, and have so enjoyed hearing about the wonderful memories and experiences that take place at 'The Little Slice.'

Kathy McCasky purchased this house in 2007

Why Kathy McCasky chose Nathrop

Nathrop is located just 13 miles from Buena Vista, which means 'Beautiful Views.' (We don't know what Nathrop means!) 13 miles south and you step back into time in old town Salida. The sense of community and eclectic shops and great dining experiences are so relaxing. Plenty of convenience and no big-box malls suits us just fine! There's a Walmart and plenty of fast food on the outskirts of town...)

What makes this house unique

A full day of outdoor activities followed by a soak at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs brings us sheer joy. Relaxing on the observation deck at night with a glass of wine really puts things in perspective for us. Morning coffee on the deck or by the windows is the best way to start the day.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5
Kathy was great to work with and super friendly and nice. She was also very responsive with last minute questions. The name of the house says it all. It was perfect for our 6 person man camp. Great hiking out the back yard, and plenty of fishing nearby. The house itself is very unique, has a lot of character and has a great layout. The location of the house cannot be beat, period. I will return for sure. Highly recommended!

Magnificent Views

  • 5 of 5
We can not truly describe the breathtaking views from this beautiful home. From the house, you can almost reach out and touch 14ers Mt Shavano and Mt Antero as well as Mt White. Mt Princeton is easily in view also. If you are looking to see the majesty of the Colorado Rockies, look no more. During our stay, we saw deer, coyotes, lots of rabbits, ground squirrels and chipmunks. We counted over 20 different species of birds that would hang out at the feeders every day. The house itself is spacious with undescribable views all around. We really enjoyed the 360 degree views from the rooftop. The evening views in particular are impossible to describe. Only 25 minutes from both Salida and Buena Vista but yet totally private and secluded.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 2 boys visited for a long weekend with another family of 4. The house is set up well for a group of this size. Although we came for skiing, the kids had just as much fun staying at the house and playing in the snow and exploring. It was wonderful waking up to such beautiful view and having coffee looking out the windows at the mountains. It was nice being out of town on some property, but being close enough to go in when needed. Highly recommended.

Our Favorite Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
My family, father in-law and dog stayed here for 3 nights over Thanksgiving and we truly adored the cabin in so many ways. When you turn into the area you realize that you are heading somewhere very special. And when you walk up the steps to the cabin to the door, you will be in awe of the views in front of you, as well as the cabin you are about to walk in. It's a marvelous structure. It's also clean, comfortable and conducive to socializing whether it is making or eating dinner, playing games, sitting on the deck or hanging out around the fire. The windows wrap east to south on the main floor and in bring in not only views to die for, but lots of sun which warms the house nicely.

We managed to have a very nice Thanksgiving due to the facilities and equipment on hand; in fact we enjoyed a lot of home cooked meals here. The owner even had a Christmas tree set up which we all loved. During the day we ventured outside any chance we could get and enjoyed the warmth of the sun on the deck. There are many trails off and near the property and we walked several for several hours apiece. The trails are easy and the forest is beautiful. The snow never stopped us thanks to the snow packed trails that other residents have formed. Every turn lends a spectacular view of the 13-14K mountains. The views never grow old. We even saw deer every morning out the window while sitting in recliners sipping hot coffee. Very special.

This place was a paradise for us, especially for our dog with the large open yard and the sun coming through the windows. Everyone was happy, but we all were sad to leave. We plan to come back in the summer to enjoy the summer weather and trails. The owner was very responsive and helpful and made everything easy. What more could you ask for.

Our family group was 3 generations aging from 83 to 23 years old. This was the perfect place. The family hiked to a waterfall, had lunch in Buena Vista, and fell in love with Salida. The owner was a joy to work with and the setting was majestic!

You cannot fully appreciate the view of the mountains from the pictures. You have to see it for yourself.
