Well appointed 3 bedroom house
Our family of three adults and two teens stayed here for a ski vacation March 2018. We enjoyed the convenience of the location near both Monarch for skiing and Salida for restaurants and shopping. We also did Capt Zipline which was a lot of fun. House had everything we needed. We would love to come back in summer season to enjoy the river activities next time. Pam was a great host and a wealth of information. She was great at communicating with us before and during our stay. Highly recommended for family fun in Colorado.
Great cabin and location
It was our second time to stay here. Great location for skiing Monarch. Everything was in good working order and comfortable. Would give 5 stars if it had a dishwasher. Very pet friendly. Great views. Nice fireplace.
Could use some upkeep outdoors
I debated on how many stars to give because I don’t know if the unkept outside yard was because of the owners or the people responsible for cleaning. The first view you get of the house is walking up to the front door with a lot of items thrown underneath the porch. The back yard was full of dog poop from a previous occupant and the back porch had more clutter underneath. The coffee pot and microwave were dirty. The rest of the house was clean. The bedrooms are a very good size and the amount of channels on the tv is awesome for those cold nights! Unfortunately the Wi-fi would not work even after restarting it. That made it difficult to plan our day without being able to research anything. We did find the nearby waterfall that was fabulous. The owners were very kind when I contactedthem for the trip, so like I said I’m not sure if it’s something they are even aware of. We enjoyed the town and loved how close monarch mountain was to us.
Beautiful property in great location
Loved all of the firewood for the wood burning fireplace and fenced in back yard for sierra was great in the mornings.
