Incorporated in 1880, the charming historic town of Salida was named as one of the 'ten best places to live' by television’s Fine Living program. Salida is known for its mild climate, plentiful outdoor recreational opportunities, and burgeoning arts scene, including the well-respected Salida Museum. It’s set beneath the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range to the south and the Sawatch Range to the northwest with its 15 peaks over 14,000 feet in elevation (which is why the region’s nickname is the “14ers Region.” The section of Arkansas River that runs near the town is world-famous for whitewater rafting and kayaking.

One of our guest said it best..'It is much prettier than the pictures lead you to believe. Hot tub is right outside the back door and fenced on one side for privacy. Property manager was super and responded quickly to all questions. We saw llama, deer and wild turkeys wandering around the neighborhood while we stayed. Easy access to both the Monarch ski resort and the town of Salida. A Walmart about 6 miles into town so if you forget something, easy to take care of.'

About Leona Taylor

We live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It has been a long time dream to live in Colorado, this cabin is a start. We feel quite fortunate to be able to share this special spot with other travelers.

Leona Taylor purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Leona Taylor chose South Central Colorado

We loved the river and convenient location to year round activities and the town of Salida. This area offers all we were looking for and so much more.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin has all the conveniences you could want, but the river and fire pit give a feeling of camping outdoors. We get the best of both worlds. It is peaceful to sit under the covered porch and watch the rain or enjoy whatever wildlife might happen by. While there are neighbors within walking distance, the cabin is secluded and relaxing.

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversery in the Monarch Cabin. The listing description is accurate. It was very clean and had all we could ask for. We travel with German Shepherds and the dogs love it. Salida is 10 -15 mintues away. Our morning were spent enjoying the fall color and a good hike. We were back to the cabin by 1pm at the latest for a dip in the private hot tub, a nap and then in to Salida for some very enjoyable meals. The kitchen is fully furnished and we cook several good meals there as well. I would highly recommend this outfit for those who are traveling with a pet and those who are not.

Recommended for:Romantic getaway, age 55+, pet owners, families with young children, sightseeing, adventure seekers, girls getaway.

Amazing Vacation - Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two kids, and dog stayed at Leona's property for a week and had an awesome time! The property had more than everything we needed and was just beautiful. Loved everything about it. The hot tub was a major plus. Leona was AMAZING!! About the fourth day into our stay we had some pretty large amounts of snow come in (literally up mid-door to our large SUV). I asked Leona via email if we could extend the rental for two nights and explained that the weather was pretty bad. One reason we wanted to extend was because we did not want to drive in that weather and the other being that we were having a blast and did not want to leave. When I emailed her she immediately called the cabin to check on us, allowed us to extend the rental, and even sent a very nice man within the hour who came by to plow us out. Definitely a vacation that we will never forget and we will for sure be returning next winter!

Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation over the Thanksgiving Week at Mt. Monarch Cabin. The weather was great and the cabin was everything we could hope for. It was very clean and well furnished. The hot tub was a bonus. Just loved it. The area is very peaceful and secluded. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Lonnie, Tracy and furry-child, Chloe, Paradise, TX.

Nothing but pure perfection

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very well stocked and very comfortable. The snacks and wine were a pleasant surprise. Relaxing in the hottub in the evenings was fantastic. Many deer in the area were nice to see. We expect to return again in the near future. Extremely nice get away for our 35th anniversary. Thanks again to the Taylors for the use of the cabin, we could not have asked for more, nor had a more relaxing time.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Salida for our 20th anniversary, and we couldn't have be more thrilled with our stay at your beautiful cabin. Quiet, private, beyond well stocked, and CLEAN! We used the picnic area and bonfire every night as well as the hot tub. Our dogs loved the open space to roam and play. We were puzzled by the random honking (not at all bothersome) at the yellow house on highway 50 so we asked some locals who shared the sweet story with us. We will be back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your anniversary. Yes, the honking is a bit of local tradition. The story behind it, is a sweet tribute to the man who lived in the yellow house for years. Fortunately, it doesn't interfere with the tranquility of the property. Looking, forward to your next visit. James and Leona
