Salida house description

We’re just back in business as a vacation rental after having a tenant for the past several months. Our summer calendar is completely open as a result.

Don't be fooled! Being 'in town' is the best way to enjoy the town of Salida. This house is within easy walking distance to all of the wonderful restaurants, shops, and galleries that Salida has to offer. Park the car, and enjoy the town. Whether you like shopping, sipping coffee, enjoying a tasty meal, floating in the river, soaking in a hot spring, walking, or hiking; Salida has something for everyone.

Don't get stuck in the mountains! After a hard day of skiing, drive to town, park the car, and enjoy the 'apres ski' and banana belt warmth which only Salida has to offer.

Built in 1899, A House On The Corner is a turn of the century, two-story, brick vacation rental located within the historical district of downtown Salida, Colorado. The house has three bedrooms (one king, one queen and one trundle bed) and two full baths. The house is decorated and equipped to make this vacation home a real home away from home. Historic downtown Salida and the Arkansas River are within walking distance. All linens are provided, and the kitchen is fully equipped. Also, one of the bedrooms is located on the main floor, which might be a consideration for those guests with disabilities. The house is clean and smoke free.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Greetings. We're two professionals from Albuquerque with a 15 year old son. We have lots of outdoor interests (skiing, boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, backpacking), and we love coming to Salida at least once a month to enjoy our special vacation home. This permits us to keep an eye on things and prepare our home for our guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Salida:
                  We love the historical character of this house and the benefits of being able to walk and bike in town. The house has a wonderful 'feel' to it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Salida is a wonderful town. It has one of the largest historical districts in Colorado, and has a vibrant downtown atmosphere. The Arkansas River runs through the town, which provides unique opportunities for fishing and boating.
