We have one king bed, one queen bed, one trundle bed, and one futon couch. The house is decorated and equipped to make this vacation home a real home away from home.

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 17 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.
