Our Little Brown House (LBH) is located 6 miles west of Salida. We are 7 miles from the Mt. Shavano Trailhead, and 12 miles from Monarch Pass and the Monarch Crest Trailhead (great hiking/biking on the Continental Divide).
Salida is a community of 5,500 people. We are surrounded by the greatest concentration of 14 thousand foot peaks in Colorado (15 of 54). The town is a haven for hikers, bikers, campers, and skiers. The Arkansas River winds its way along the edge of downtown, inviting rafters, kayakers, fishers, and “beach lovers” alike. Known for a mild climate, Salida is a perfect setting for your outdoor adventure.
The Monarch Ski Resort offers downhill skiing & snowboarding, and the surrounding ski area offers cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I'm a retired Professor from the University of Missouri-Columbia. My family has been coming to Colorado for the past 15 years, renting vacation properties for a week at a time during summer and winter. Our love of the outdoors (hiking & skiing) took us to several Rocky Mountain locations, including the Collegiate Peaks that surround Salida, Colorado.
Why the Owner Chose Salida: About 8 years ago, I decided to purchase a gathering place for my adult and growing family. I wanted to create a place to spend summer vacations and winter breaks. I considered several of the locations we had stayed in the past, but finally settled on Salida. I purchased the Little Brown House (LBH) because of its spectacular setting and its proximity to all the things my family loves about the west - skiing, hiking, biking and more.
The Unique Benefits at this House: What my family loves about the LBH is its privacy on the one hand and its closeness to Salida, hiking, biking, and skiing on the other.
