                            Great house near downtown Salida. We were just a group of 4, but since the common areas are on the smaller side this worked well. Best part was the amazing kitchen - the gas stove with the enormous steel griddle was great for breakfast. We had a little trouble with the pilot lights and the dishwasher but Allen is true to his word and is available by phone whenever needed. Cute downtown is 0.8mi away, hot tub and woodstove were perfect for our winter stay, and we loved the childhood flashbacks brought by the complete collection of Calvin & Hobbes comic books upstairs ;)

                            Lovely house In a perfect central location. Our kids loved the loft and our family of 6 was very comfortable. the greenhouse, deck and pond out back were a special bonus- you won't find another house where you can pick your own tomatoes off the vine in October! Allan, the owner was so friendly, accommodating and pleasant to work with. We hiked at Monarch and look forward to returning for ski season since it's so close. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

                            We stayed here for two nights to celebrate a surprise birthday party. The location was perfect to walk to both the party and other amenities in town. The bedrooms and sleeping loft were good for our group. A few details on cleaning needed to be addressed and Allan took our suggestions well and the property should be great shape for future guests. We would stay here again. It is a charming property.

                            My friends and I stayed here for a long weekend for a friend's wedding in Salida. We spent the majority of our time sitting in the back yard, which was absolutely gorgeous. The large greenhouse was beautiful and smelled phenomenal - and made for some nice pictures for our friend's wedding collection! We had all we needed in the house, including shampoo and some spices, etc. The location is very convenient to downtown, and we were able to rent bikes and not have to use our car too often. Allan was extremely accommodating and very easy to work with, and easy to get ahold of even the evening before we arrived for a last-minute request. Our only issue was not knowing where to drop the garbage (there was a sign with info about recycling drop, but not trash). Other than that, our stay was wonderful and we would definitely rent this house again.

                            This was a very charming home in a great location, being close to downtown. It is spacious and has everything you need. The owner was wonderful. We had a few issues but he was very courteous and helpful and took care of us. I would highly recommend this place and will be back!

                            Our 2 families with 7 people total very much enjoyed our stay at The H Street Home. Plenty of room for all, in fact one bedroom went unused. The first night we went out, the second night we made a big meal. Teenagers walked to the Hot Springs Pool, which is very close, and also to the downtown historic district, which is a bit farther but still very do-able. The hot tub was great, the dome is very cool. Not fancy, but all in all a great place which shows a lot of pride in ownership!

                            Arrived to find the place clean and warm. Great location for Monarch ski resort and walking distance to downtown Salida's shops and dining. One of my favorite features was the cooking range, it is a old commercial unit that has a 24x24 griddle for hot cakes and eggs! Three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a very large loft left us very comfortable at night. Wireless internet service was excellent. Enclosed hot tub was great for watching the snow fall and sipping on wine. Allan was the perfect owner to do a VRBO with! Very nice. Very friendly and much appreciated!

                            This is a cute and cozy house, but the photos (and the description) are a little bit misleading... It is a charming house, and decently appointed, but all of the restorations are clearly "DIY" type projects. We did enjoy our stay there, but may or may not consider staying there again... The price was reasonable, the yard was large, and our dogs certainly enjoyed it, the house is decent, and the hot tub is a nice amenity. On the down side, the "do it yourself" work was pretty obvious in that the house is cold and drafty, and poorly insulated, so despite the partially heated floors and the space heaters in virtually every room I probably would not stay there again in winter. (You can even see the gaps around the front door.) Given the price I think there are probably comparable or better options in the area. While we did only communicate through email, Allen was friendly and accommodating.

                            Owner response: I appreciate the feedback Jos and I will address the weather strip around the front door immediately. Thanks for the heads up. Just to clarify, the 2nd floor is heated via forced air natural gas furnace vented directly into family room and both bedrooms. The house has a radiant floor heating system for dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The first floor living room has a very effective and enchanting wood burning stove so the house can be as warm or hot as you would like. Fire wood is provided.

                            The home is cozy, tranquil and has all possible amenities you could need. We loved the hot tub and how we could open or close the windows and see the stars at night. It is a perfect distance fro the town center. Your garden dome is so cool! Thank you for the perfect birthday weekend. Loved the Pancake Patio Place- incredible breakfasts.
