AWE-INSPIRING VIEWS, PRIVACY & TREES - 5 MINUTES FROM TOWN

Salida House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

LAST MINUTE VACANCY: SATURDAY JULY 26TH THROUGH FRIDAY AUGUST 1ST HAVE BECOME AVAILABLE AT A SPECIAL RATE! COME AND HIKE AND RIDE AND RAFT IN PARADISE. NO HIDDEN FEES---CLEANING & TAXES INCLUDED (this save a lot, be sure to compare). Hike, road bike, mountain bike, run the river, or just RELAX and enjoy the 270 degree views from the new addition to what was already the finest deck in the valley, or lounge on the patio, where the views are just as good. If you can bring yourself to come inside, watch the huge HD-TV! No hidden costs make this place a great value for a week-long vacation or a weekend get-away. You can go mountain biking or hiking on all the new trails on S mountain. The new North Backbone Trailhead is just 1.2 miles from the house. Over 3 miles of sweet singletrack, perfect for both biking and hiking, that connects with the rest of the ARKANSAS HILLS TRAIL SYSTEM (Backbone, South Backbone, Front Side, and others). On the other side of the valley (only minutes away), the Little Rainbow Trail now links with the Double Rainbow Trail. They are also available to bikers and hikers for four-season fun. See link below for more information (thanks to Salida Mountain Trails and Absolute Bikes). Exploring our attractive town is always fun. We, the owners (college professors), stay at our lovely Salida vacation home at least two months per year. That's how we know it is ready for your comfort, recreation and relaxation. The view from the 600 square foot deck is second to none and includes broad expanses of the Sangre de Cristo and Sawatch Mountain Ranges and the Continental Divide. Chaffee County has more 14,000 foot mountains than any county in the country. The ones visible from the deck include Mount Shavano (14,229’) and Mount Antero (14,269’). Many other snow-capped peaks are visible including Mount Ouray (13,973’).

The patio, just outside one bedroom, is a smaller, more intimate outdoor space. An ancient pinon pine provides shade and privacy. A lovely rock garden is a serene foreground to the spectacular backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range and Mount Ouray. This is also the view, through two floor to ceiling windows and a glass door, from the bed in this bedroom.

The main living area has an open floor plan and is furnished with a combination of new, very comfortable seating and antique heirlooms. The living room has four floor to ceiling windows, so one can enjoy the spectacular views in complete comfort. The two main bedrooms are separated by the living area and hallway.

Each has its own full bathroom, providing quiet and privacy for two couples or a family, not to mention HUGE VIEWS through floor-to-cieling windows. The third bedroom doubles as the 'electronics room.' The WiFi router is there, as is a fifty inch flat screen HD-TV with more then 50 channels via satellite and a DVD/VCR combo. This room also has a new fold-out couch for viewing or sleeping. Needless to say, the view is magnificent through the large window.

The full kitchen has all amenities and opens on to the main living area. Immediately adjacent is the dining area, which easily seats six adults.

We are college professors at Mizzou (Biological Engineering, Special Education). The flexibility in our schedules and wireless access allow us to spend time in our Salida vacation home (VRBO 99827). That's why we know they are ready for your relaxation and enjoyment.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

No place else has Salida's combination of hiking, mountain biking, skiing and river running. The town is charming. The downtown area has many galleries and boutiques in historic buildings, but it is removed from routes 50 and 285. This gives it a quiet, off-the-beaten path feel. It's a privelege just existing in such a beautiful setting.

The best views in the valley from the patio, deck and through floor to ceiling windows throughout the house.

AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The views were unbelievable and the house was great. Salida is a great town and the house is a close drive to some very nice hikes. I recommend Lake Ptarmigan (sp?). We are looking forward to our next trip.

BEAUTIFUL SALIDA GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
You can't do better than this lovely home with fabulous views just outside of Salida. You can easily get to town; river rafting, hiking and biking AND skiing are all within easy reach (some without even driving). THe house itself has an amazing deck with views to all sides. Great for morning coffee, or evening wine while watching the sunset over the mountains.

Very well stocked kitchen; two very nice master bedroom suites each with great views (so good place for two couples); comfortable beds and high quality sheets. If you are looking in this location, you'll love Bill and Rebecca's place!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your visit. We agree that the floor plan is very good for two couples. Privacy in the bed/bath suites is complemented by togetherness in the great room. Cooking with family and friends is a fund (and cheap!) alternative to eating out.

A LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in this cozy yet spacious home. It was well kept and equipped with everything one needs for comfort. The bedrooms are perfectly located within the house -- two with deck or patio just outside the door. Floor to ceiling windows line the house for lots of natural light and incredible views. The spectacular vista of mountains and valley visible from the main deck was a perfect backdrop for a cold drink after an arduous bike ride or hike on the many well maintained trails in the area, not to mention a beautiful place to BBQ or just relax and watch the sunset.
The location of the home was one of its high points, being just outside Salida, away from the noise of the city, yet only minutes from the many quaint shops and restaurants. The owners were kind and accommodating and their description of the property was completely accurate. We will recommend it to our friends and hope to return soon.

We had a great time! Have stayed in many VRBO properties in the US and Europe and this is right up there in the top. The other reviews are right on the mark and if you want to deal with an owner who is quick to respond to questions and offers great information, this is the place. I would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys dramatic views, great accommodations, good food, fun shopping and quietude. When next in Colorado we will be here.

ELLA

  • 5 of 5
This listing was exactly what it described; the views of the mountains and valley are awesome; the house is clean & comfortable; the furnishings are in excellent conditions; the bathrooms are clean and spacious, the house is in good condition & very clean. Owners are always willing to answer any questions or concerns we have, and are truthful. We would recommend this house to our friends and family without hesitation. The town has plenty of arts & crafts to see - buy, the restaurants are great, hiking trails plenty, sports for summer & winter available year round. We recommend the "Laughing Ladies" restaurant and the Twisted Cork, great steaks.
We have stayed in this house several times and will again and again. Beautiful location.

Map

The North Backbone Trailhead is 1.2 miles from the house, providing easy access to the best hiking and mountain biking in the Salida vicinity. Run the river in a raft or kayak (inflatable kayaks or "duckies" are easy, fun, exciting, and available for rent), The hiking and mountain biking are world famous, Monarch Ski & Snowboard area is less that 30 minutes on beautiful roads without traffic, a far cry from the weekend road rally to Summit County on on I-70, Monarch has the best snow in Colorado (Wolf Creek may dispute this claim, but no other resort comes close) and recently opened "extreme terrain" called Mirkwood Basin, Other activities include, Road Biking, Aspen Viewing, and Riding ATVs, Dirt Bikes and Snowmobiles
