Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely stay with friends to usher in 2016! The cabin was super close to skiing, and sledding right out the front door! Good directions here and for our stay, and well-stocked kitchen. Plenty of space for 2 families +. Thank you for a great stay.

Ski Trip Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay in Buena Vista with family for our weekend ski trips to Monarch, but this year we wanted something closer to the slopes and a little roomier...this was perfect! Everything we needed and kitchen table with benches was perfect for our large group. Everything went smoothly from start to finish and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Hope to return next year!

Beautiful Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this mountain house for my mother's 80th birthday. There were nine of us in all, and this house accommodated us perfectly. There were two full-sized beds in the loft that overlooks the living area, two sets of bunk beds at the bottom of the stairs on the lower floor, then two private rooms on the lower level as well.

The long picnic-style dining table was spacious enough to seat us all comfortably, and the three overstuffed couches provided ample seating for all. Our only disappointment was that the BBQ was not on one of the covered porches and was therefore encased in 3' of ice and unusable. So, if you're coming here in the winter and like to BBQ, be sure to ask if the BBQ is accessible.

All-in-all, we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend this house. The owners were very friendly and impressively responsive to e-mails.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a wonderful stay and celebration with family! We are sorry you were unable to use the grill. Due to fire code restrictions we are unable to put it on the porch or deck.

Annual Ski Trip to Monarch

  • 5 of 5

Sleepy Hollow is the perfect getaway for our annual "girls" ski trip to Monarch. It is very clean, comfortable and in a beautiful spot. This is the second year we have stayed at Sleepy Hollow and we plan to make it our tradition! We had a great time and are so happy that we found Sleepy Hollow.

Fantastic place and beautiful"

  • 4 of 5

Our crew spent two nights here for a retreat. Perfect size, location and setting. Parking in the winter is tricky. Make sure you have a short 4x4 vehicle and you will be just fine. Highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: So glad you loved the cabin and setting. The parking area does get plowed in winter and there shouldn't be a problem getting in there with a standard size SUV (Suburban, Tahoe, Excursion, Expedition, etc.)

Nice cabin, great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin; it was nice, clean and updated. The location is great whether you're skiing or spending time in Salida. Salida is only 20 minutes away, and because it's in a banana belt, the weather is much milder. We were skiing one day at Monarch, and in Salida the next day, in almost 50 degree weather, walking around town and along the river. We had issues with supplies, which needs to be addressed with the cleaning person or service. We did not have enough toilet paper or trash bags, so we bought toilet paper, and used plastic grocery bags to bag up the rest of our trash. The only other thing that I would recommend that the owners get a couple of fans for white noise, because the floors have no insulation - they're just wood planks. They're beautiful, but you can hear EVERYTHING. We ended up going to the Salida Walmart, and buying a fan, because if you're in one of the bedrooms under the living room, and someone stayed up to watch TV, you could hear the TV even if it was turned down, and the person talking, clearing their throat, sniffing, etc. Everything. But, the fan helped drown out all of that. And if you're in the master bedroom, you're right under the kitchen, which is where everyone congregated in the morning. I would still recommend this cabin if you can deal with that part of it.

Owner's Response: We're glad you loved the cabin and location! We provide 3 trash compactor bags, which definitely hold a large amount of trash when compacted, and 8 rolls of toilet paper. Sleepy Hollow IS a mountain cabin, with lots of character and charm, including the wood floors :)
