Cozy & quiet New Year's getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two nights at the Little River Guest House to wrap up 2017, and couldn't think of a single utility, utensil, or creature comfort that wasn't amply supplied. Upon checking in, we found the comfortable cabin in great condition and ready to enjoy, with clean dishes in the kitchen, toiletries aplenty in the bathroom, and the hot tub running out back. A half dozen home-cooked meals and two restful nights later, we were sad to leave the beautiful Arkansas River Valley area and all that it as to offer, especially the endless opportunities for food, drink, and recreation down the road in Salida. We're looking forward to visiting again, and truly appreciate all the work that the owners put into providing first-class accommodations for a memorable stay in the mountains.

Absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We got here at night so we couldn't see much. But in the morning the views were amazing and the property was great. So quite and lots of space for the dog. The hot tub was great and the cabin was just what we were looking for.

Perfect getaway for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

The property is quaint, beautiful and exactly what we wanted for Thanksgiving. We had 3 dogs and 5 people. There was enough space to have the dogs run around, they made friends with the owners dogs. There were enough beds for everyone and enough space to cook a full Thanksgiving meal. There is a porch with a beautiful view of the mountains, we enjoyed coffee and cards out there. The National forest is so close that finding great hiking with no one around was easy. Salida is 10 minutes away to enjoy a nice afternoon in their downtown. I would highly recommend this property and can’t wait to go back!

Lovely Comfy Private

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time visiting the Guest House and we’ll hopefully be back again. We love the location, the “home” feeling & of course, the hot tub.
