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 Stay

  • 5 of 5

We woke up to 5 inches of new snow and beautiful views off the two large decks. We spent time sledding and in Salida for a great lunch at the Boathouse on the river. We also enjoyed Mt. Princeton Hot Springs which are are only 15 minutes away !!

The House was perfect for our family; plenty of room and very clean and comfortable. We look forward to our next stay! Thank you - what a great place !!

Took a break from Breck

  • 5 of 5

We were spending Christmas in Breckenridge with the fam (some of them live there) and wanted to try something different for a couple of days. We had a blast. Loved the house and the area. Spent time in Salida and at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Missed out on what we hear is usually great weather, though. It was cold and snowy during our visit. Guess we'll have to come back and see sunny Salida. Can't wait. Thanks much, Kathy.

We just returned from a perfect girl's weekend at Little Slice of Heaven! Cozy, comfortable, clean and truly perfect in every way. Could practically live on the beautiful new deck, and the views are phenomenal! So peaceful, and can't wait to go back!

Lovely home in Nathrop

  • 5 of 5

We were there to celebrate my father-in-laws 80th birthday. There were 5 of us in the house and it was great! Very clean and spacious, and Kathy left some lovely goodies for our arrival! Beautiful location and the house is a one of a kind. We loved sleeping in the loft and going outside at night to see all the stars. I know we will be back!

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.
