Salida House Rental Photos and Description

3BR Forest/Park Vacation Rental Garfield, Colorado USA

With beautiful mountain views of the San Isabel National Forest, this spacious, secluded three-bedroom-plus-loft/two-bath home sleeps ten in comfort and luxury. Located 15 miles west of Salida in Garfield, and four miles east of the Monarch Ski and Snowboard area, this spectacular property has everything you'll need for a wonderful Rocky Mountains vacation in winter or summer.

This roomy, multi-level home features a full, modern kitchen and large picture windows. The bedrooms each have queen-size beds, while the loft has a sofa sleeper. The large great room has two large leather couches.

This mountain getaway is our vacation home, and is maintained as a private residence rather than a rental. It's fully furnished including a washer/dryer, a two-car garage, a telephone, and two satellite TV systems with VCR, DVD, and surround-sound.

The scenic property has a large wrap-around deck with a gas grill; and there's a natural spring in the yard.

Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobile trai: Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobile trails, fishing, white-water rafting, hiking trails from beginners to 14,000-foot peaks, four-wheeling and dirt biking, golfing, hot springs, and local restaurants and shopping are all nearby. 'Chaffee County' is home to Monarch Ski and Snowboard Area. Because of the warm winter temperatures, visitors can ski Monarch or snowmobile one day and spend the next in the sun, shopping, mountain biking, relaxing in hot springs pools, golfing, or fishing all in the same winter weekend. Families and high adventure seekers will find Chaffee County to be one of the best values in Colorado. The Monarch season opens in mid-November, and runs through mid-April. Monarch has an elevation of 10,790 feet at its base, and 11,961 feet at its summit -- with a vertical drop of 1,171 feet. It offers 670 acres of ski-able terrain along the Continental Divide, in the Sawatch Range within the Pike/San Isabel National Forest.

The area has 54 trails with 21% beginner, 37% intermediate, and 42% advanced. Its longest run is two miles. There are five chairlifts (one fixed quad and four double chairs) which run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily. Monarch's average annual snowfall is 350 inches.

Great house with all of the necessities you could think of

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the mountain house. The owner was easy to work with and ensured that we had everything we needed. The house itself was equipped with everything you could need for a great weekend including firewood for the stove, endless kitchen utensils including a crock pot, tons of pots and pans and even a large griddle. The house was large enough for our group of 5 couples with 3 bedrooms, a loft and two pull out coaches in the living room. And i feel obligated for the guys in our group to mention that the movie selection was great so when it rained we were able to relax and watch movies. The house is about 20 mins from Salida which is a great town to explore. There is no phone service in this area so you have to drive about 10 mins if you need to use a cell phone but the house did have a land line that you could use with a calling card. Overall it was a great place.

Monarch Memories

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful mountain home was just perfect for our 2 families! 6 adults and 3 children had plenty of room and were able to relax comfortably after skiing all day at Monarch! There is plenty of space for folks to enjoy games, cooking and eating, and relaxing! All the windows provided amazing outside views and the wood stove kept us cozy and warm. This home exceeded my expectations and we would love to stay here again. I also loved and appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was and the other items in the house made it feel like home. Robin was a joy to work with and we look forward to staying here again!

Secluded Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to stay in and had great owners to work with. The pictures online don't do the house justice as it is just beautiful in person! Plenty of room for all six adult family members. Even though there is not an online booking feature via VRBO have no fear! Owners are completely honest and I look forward to staying here again! It is located a perfect distance between Monarch Ski Resort and Salida.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 adults and 4 kids in our group. We felt as though we had plenty of room. This cabin is in a beautiful location surrounded by lots of trees. The washer and dryer were definitely a plus! The owner was great to deal with. Deposit was returned promptly.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

This house is a great place to stay. Salida CO was just down the road, Salida has everything you could ask for(restaurant's, shopping even a Wal-Mart) I was worried about the house since we had 4 adults and 3 kids but we had plenty of space, we never felt crowded. The only complaint I have is the driveway is difficult if your pulling a trailer.(we had 2 pickups each pulling trailers) Robin and Dave are great people to work with If I have any friends headed up to Colorado I will for sure tell them about this house.

Car: necessary

We are located on the north side of Hwy. 50, across the highway from the residential city of Garfield. The house is secluded with aspen and pine trees, and has a natural spring flowing through the backyard behind the deck. We are just 5 miles from Monarch ski area, with snowmobiling just minutes away, as well as fishing and hiking the 14,000 foot mountain peaks nearby. White water rafting and shopping are just a 20 minute drive towards the historical city of Salida. There are also several hot springs resorts and pools within 30 minutes of the house. Every season of the year brings a wonderful natural setting on the property, including the red and yellow aspen leaves, serene winter snowfall, and gorgeous plants and flowers in the spring and summer, with hummingbirds buzzing around the deck! !

Golf: There are 3 golf courses in the area

Ski: Monarch ski area is just 5 miles from the house, and Crested Butte is about an hour away.
