Guestbook comments from the owner
Wanted to let you know that our entire party really enjoyed the LBH. It was our favorite stop on our CO trip. Because we have younger kids, we visited the Agnes Vaille Falls, per your recommendation in your Notebook, it was perfect for our group. The last night we were there, a herd of elk came down out of the tree lines north of your place. We counted over 50 of them. Just as it was getting dark, they made their way through the lot just north of yours. They were so close we could hear them snorting and eating, amazing.

I'm a retired Professor from the University of Missouri-Columbia. My family has been coming to Colorado for the past 15 years, renting vacation properties for a week at a time during summer and winter. Our love of the outdoors (hiking & skiing) took us to several Rocky Mountain locations, including the Collegiate Peaks that surround Salida, Colorado.

Mark Volkmann purchased this house in 2006

About 8 years ago, I decided to purchase a gathering place for my adult and growing family. I wanted to create a place to spend summer vacations and winter breaks. I considered several of the locations we had stayed in the past, but finally settled on Salida. I purchased the Little Brown House (LBH) because of its spectacular setting and its proximity to all the things my family loves about the west - skiing, hiking, biking and more.

What my family loves about the LBH is its privacy on the one hand and its closeness to Salida, hiking, biking, and skiing on the other.

NICE PLACE TO STAY WHILE IN SALIDA OR TO SKI AT MONARCH

  • 5 of 5
I really liked the layout of this three bedroom house. It's relatively simple, but well laid out. It also has a nice sun room/family room, which we used for the teen boys. They had their space and the adults had their's. The house is also well stocked with lots of dishes and cooking stuff that you don't always find. Every time that I thought, "I wonder if they have one of these," I found it. We definitely plan on going again.

WONDERFUL SKI VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay at LBH. We skied at Monarch all 6 days we were there, and had a great time. The house was perfect for our needs, comfortable and well stocked. We highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. My family occupies the LBH about 8 weeks out of the year and because we are there for extended periods, we make sure the LBH has everything we need. I'm glad you found it to be comfortable and well-stocked.

Not to oversell this place, but the real thing lives up to the picture you see on the website. Mountains all around and light changing constantly, making for beautiful views. The view from the back deck is amazing, and the LBH provides wonderfully comfortable "adirondack" chairs from which to take it all in. We also sat out there at night, and, being city-dwellers, were captivated by the night sky away from light pollution. (If you are not from the west, be advised that the temperature goes down to about 55 or 60 degrees at night. Perfect sleeping weather, but you'll need to dress warmly and/or wrap up in blankets for star-gazing.) Another great quality of the LBH is that it's located about two minutes from Route 50 (allowing easy access to Salida and lots of fun adventures like zip lining, rafting, and hiking) but it is on a very quiet back road. We seldom heard any noise other than the wind blowing through the grass and the sound of meadow larks calling to each other. We kept remarking how we felt so relaxed there. The interior of the LBH was marvelous, as well. Spotless, well-appointed, and very comfortable. I wasn't sure from the pictures on the website if the house would be too small for seven people, but it accommodated us easily. The only things we found lacking were sharp knives and a few more different-sized pots and pans (we ate in most evenings), but we were able to make do with what was there just fine. All in all, we had a wonderful, memorable 5-day stay at the LBH! We would definitely stay there again and hope to go back.

Owner's Response: Suzanne,
I've spent many an evening in those same chairs, watching the sun set into the mountains. I would love to have you back to the LBH, and next time I'll try to have those knives sharpened :-).

WE HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
The LBH was perfect for us. There were 6 of us including two kids ages 8 and 13. The home is warm and inviting and we sure liked the fact that there were so many entertaining games for the kids. The kitchen had everything we needed including a large oval crock pot. The setting is gorgeous and close to everything we were interested in doing. We enjoyed the hike to Agnes Vaille Falls and then an afternoon of fishing at nearby Chaulk Lake. We spent one day at the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort and enjoyed the local rodeo and County fair in the evening as well as window shopping in Salida. This was such a great time for us to enjoy a relaxed family vacation. We all agreed we would definitely do this again as the only thing we ran out of was time.!

Nice house, killer view, easy rental with everything you'd need.

We had a great weekend at LBH, Mark the owner was easy to work with and the house is very well stocked with all the little things to make it a 'show up and relax' time. The house was clean, everything worked and the bed in the master is comfortable!
The view off the back porch is typical stunning Colorado, large meadow giving way to a 14er right out your back door.
Monarch is a 15 min drive up the pass and town is 15 the other way.
