                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      Why the Owner Chose Salida:
                      Salida is at the heart of Colorado and after purchasing this wonderful property we decided that we could not keep it to ourselves. We chose to list our cottage as a rental so that we could share with others the calm we feel when we are here.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Moonstone Retreat cottage offers a great feeling of calm and privacy and yet is still only a 2-minute drive to downtown Salida. The wonderful bonus is the ease of hopping on a bike and arriving at our favorite coffee shops, restaurants and shops in a just matter of minutes from leaving the cottage front door. After a day of mingling with friendly town folk, unwinding riverside out the cottage back door is a perfect way to spend a wonderful Salida day.
