Salida townhome description

1903 Brownstone in the heart of downtown Salida. You can not beat the location of this historic townhome- very clean with artistic decor and a sense of humor. Think of an urban 'camp'. Enjoy the shops, restaurants, Arkansas River, farmer's market and festivals. Everything is ''One Block Up, Or One Block Over' - seriously. Is there a wait at Amica's? No worries, go over and get your electronic 'table's ready' beeper and come back to the house for a pre dinner drink- it'll beep when your table is ready. When the day winds down, hang on the stoop and people watch, or relax in the back yard. Fantastic hiking and mountain bike trails right here, with no shuttling necessary. We have a gear room/shed attached to the back of the home, so take those bikes off the rack. The Arkansas River is 2 blocks away- watch or do some kayaking or sunbathe in the eddies. Our chabby chic remodel is very clean, and we made sure to stock it with nice linens and towels. The kitchen is simple but clean, and it has everything you need. We've rented many vacation rentals over the years ourselves, some great and some too scary for words. We know what's most important- we have your back. Salida's a really fun place to hang out and live the Colorado lifestyle. This home is the perfect compliment to that kind of vacation, you'll feel like you were living here not visiting!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1998

                              About the owner: I am the VP of Ops at Rescue-Essentials. My husband owns and operates Roots, Rights & Interests as a Residential Appraiser. We have an awesome 10 year old that knows more people here than we do. We're laid back and friendly. And we love to play in the Chaffee County.

                              Why the Owner Chose Salida:
                              This was my first home purchase ever, and I LOVE this house. We had plans drawn up to gut it and do a full remodel. But for now, we decided to acquire additional space. When I first visited Salida, I'll never forget the way the mountains made me feel when I dropped down into Johnson's Village on 285 for the first time. I vowed to move here and buy a 'little brick house'......and that's just what I did. Offering it as a vacation rental seemed right. Hopefully the people that stay here will get that same feeling.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                              You are literally a 'Townie' when you stay here. This house and this location paints the picture of what it feels like live here.
