Property description

Our mesa guest house is available only by the month. It is currently available for the months of October, November & December 2015, and March 2016. It is available for a 1, 6, or 12 month lease starting May 2016. We do not accept pets or smokers. It is perfect for one or two. One parking spot & storage are offered in a shared garage for a long term guest. The views are huge, it is very quiet & private, & there is a beautiful, private, maintained courtyard. It is available furnished or unfurnished. Come check out Salida and stay for a while!
We specialize in creating beautiful healing sunny dwellings. You will find refreshing simple elegance, a peaceful secluded atmosphere, and lots of fresh air to breath. Close enough to walk or bike the 7 blocks to downtown, yet off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood for complete rest & quiet. Winters are great for skiing or boarding, soaking in one of the near by hot springs, or just warming up in the hammock by the fire. Summers are fun! Hiking, biking, swimming, rafting, fishing, golfing. And of course, no shortage of shopping and dining downtown. Come enjoy the beauty of Salida at the Salida Gems Guest House on the Mesa.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are both long time residents of Salida. My partner is a native of Colorado, I've been in Colorado since 1973. We enjoy the casual life style, the small town atmosphere, friendly people, great entertainment, great weather, recreational opportunities, the river! The mountains! The powder at Monarch!

Why the Owner Chose Salida:
This property was completed in the summer of 2012 and is a true Salida Gem. I have been building custom bungalows in the downtown Salida area since 2003. My passion is for creating comfortable, simple, elegant, sunny and healing spaces. We both have a deep love and appreciation for beauty, and are happy to be able to share this with our guests. This guest house is special for its incredible spacious views while being right in town. The quietness and open skies offer a wonderful respite from the rest of the world. Our guest house was designed for our visitors, we know you will love it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our guest house for the views, the peace and seclusion, the beautiful summer gardens, and the horses grazing in the meadow down below the courtyard. All of my Salida Gem houses have a very special feeling about them, from the fun, easy to use kitchen, the kiva fireplace,to the spacious bedroom with a view. We love being able to walk downtown for dinner and a great concert. The people here are the best!
