Nathrop house description

This spacious, bright, comfortable home is truly one of a kind! Built in 1982, with Darwin passive solar architecture, you will not want for natural sunlight and views. Adjacent to the national forest, the location is simply unmatched to experience true mountain living with local conveniences in nearby Salida and Buena Vista. Arkansas Valley headwaters, trails, Princeton Hot springs just minutes away. The 'Little Slice' backs right up to National Forest and the stunning, unobstructed mountain views and sunsets will take your breath away. Tall, fragrant pines surround you, and don't be surprised at the abundance of bird species that will stop by the feeders or wildlife you may see meandering through the meadow. We love our guests and will do everything possible to insure your comfort at a reasonable rate. Check out our reviews! Our 'Little Slice' is the perfect place for great memories. Family reunions, special birthdays, anniversaries, friends gathering, outdoor enthusiasts, hunters who prefer a warm bed at night.......We welcome you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Well fell in love with the Arkansas Valley many, many years ago when a day hike on majestic Mt. Princeton turned into an overnight adventure. We found our 'Little Slice of Heaven' while camping and tooling around on the fire roads in the National Forest right behind our property. Our best memories have been hiking, ATV'ing, skiing and snow shoeing and exploring this miraculous, unspoiled area. We treat our guests as family that we actually like to come visit 😊, and have so enjoyed hearing about the wonderful memories and experiences that take place at 'The Little Slice.'

Why the Owner Chose Nathrop:
Nathrop is located just 13 miles from Buena Vista, which means 'Beautiful Views.' (We don't know what Nathrop means!) 13 miles south and you step back into time in old town Salida. The sense of community and eclectic shops and great dining experiences are so relaxing. Plenty of convenience and no big-box malls suits us just fine! There's a Walmart and plenty of fast food on the outskirts of town...)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A full day of outdoor activities,)followed by a soak at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs brings us sheer joy. Relaxing on the observation deck at night with a glass of wine really puts things in perspective for us. Morning coffee on the deck or by the windows is the best way to start the day.
