South Central Colorado House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful mountain home with great views of the Chalk Cliffs. Brazilian tile floors, gourmet kitchen, and decorator touches throughout! Three bedrooms with two master bedrooms (one on main floor) and one double bunkroom. Enjoy the spectacular views from the floor to ceiling windows in the main level family room AND from the wrap-around deck. Jacuzzi, Direct TV, fully stocked kitchen, gas grill, and many more amenities. Main level fire place, plus two fireplaces downstairs, including the second master. New for 2015 - solar panels supply the majority of the house's energy needs.

No house has better views of the Chalk Cliffs. Also, we are very near the Mt. Princeton hot springs and the shortcut that takes you the back way to Buena Vista.

When booking, we will provide you with our listing of our favorite restaurants, hikes, shops, and activities in the area.

Home is 5 minutes from Mount Princeton Resort but privately situated on close to three acres. You get the best of both worlds: privacy and access!

The best thing about Nathrop is all that there is to do close by including hiking, soaking at the hot springs, berry picking, visiting the fish hatchery, world class rafting on the Arkansas River, golf, biking, fishing, skiing, ATV riding and much more. Don't want to cook? Buena Vista is less than 15 minutes away and Salida is 25 minutes south with great restaurants, antiquing and Salida's notable art scene. We have compiled an activity book with many different options to keep you busy.

Small pets are welcome. There is a fully fenced-in dog run.

The two master bedrooms have queen beds and the double bunkroom has two bunkbeds, each with a twin on top and a full bed on the bottom.

Why The Owner chose South Central Colorado

We brought here because it is quiet and peaceful, but is also a great place for family get-togethers. This is a beautiful and unique home. It is the perfect antidote for stress and the city. Drive through the South Park Valley from Denver and feel the stress melt away - no matter what the season.

What makes this house unique

We gather with family, hike the numerous trails, fish, golf, or just sit on the balcony with binoculars and the bird book (both provided).

Beautiful home and spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was lovely and accommodated our three families very nicely. We had room to spread out but also a large gathering space when we wanted to be together. I could have sat on the deck all day looking at the Chalk Cliffs but managed to take a couple of hikes. The kids (and we did too!) enjoyed watching a deer come into the yard each morning and munching her way around the deck.

The well supplied kitchen and grill and made cooking our meals an easy task.

Your directions to the property, suggestions about things to do and area shopping were very helpful.

We would definitely recommend this house to others.

Great location, terrific views!

  • 3 of 5

This is a great mountain home with easy access and fantastic views. Plenty of space in this mountain home to spread out with a nice open floor plan making it easy for a large group to enjoy each others' company.

Directions to the home are excellent, but it's best to make your initial arrival in the daytime. There were two routes provided. While it hadn't snowed for some time and weather had been warm, we did need to take the alternate route since we weren't using 4-wheel drive vehicles. Directions for starting up the water heater were a little misleading as they mentioned a 'vacation mode' on the switch. The switch for the water heater was on the wall and had no vacation mode option. After a call to the owner we got that figured out quickly. The owner was accessible via the contact phone #'s we got via the Home Away app on my cell phone. Cell phone service at the house was not available so we called from town and got hold of her right away. She mentioned there is a phone in the house which can be used in situations like that.

There was a bit of a foul odor in the lower level that dissipated after about a day. This was reported to the owner who was planning to look into correcting it. After arriving fairly late in the evening we didn't enjoy having to search for linens and bedding to make up the 4 bunk beds and would have preferred a higher quality mattress in the master bedroom. Apart from those considerations it's a wonderful home for a visit.

There are great views-adventure to get there!

  • 3 of 5

Very well maintained property. Off the beaten track. You really need to read the instructions to open the property-turn on the hot water and telecomm assets. Do not arrive at the property after sunset! You may not find it! But after you do, it is worth the adventure. If you want an out of the way location, this one is for you! The views are as billed and are excellent! The hot springs/river down the road is very expensive and you need to build your own hot tub out of rocks to enjoy! We had the team to enjoy them!

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you had a hard time finding the house. The house instructions strongly suggest that you get to the house before dark. It is a mountain house. We don't set the prices at the hot springs.

Gorgeous Views of Colorado's Chalk Cliffs!

  • 5 of 5

This mountain retreat was located just minutes from the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort where you can spend hours or days just soaking in the natural spring-fed hot springs. The home came equipped with everything the owners described (i.e fully furnished, linens, kitchen supplies & even board games!) which made it perfect for a weekend family retreat. We especially enjoyed the views from the wrap-around deck which faced the magnificent Chalk Cliffs- this view was especially enjoyable during sunrise. The only slight inconvenience was that we happened to be visiting Colorado during a drought which made it impossible to enjoy the outdoor firepit, but we didn't mind. The owners left binders full of suggestions/things to do around the area like exploring hiking trails, visiting a ghost town or trying out great restaurants, we didn't even have time to enjoy a fire anyway! I highly recommend this rental to anyone wishing to experience the heart of Colorado!
