Located in Salida, in the heart of the Rockies. There are gorgeous mountain views from anywhere in the city. The house is located a few hundred feet from the Arkansas river, and just across the street from Riverside Park which host lots of festivities throughout the year. Hiking or Mnt. Biking can start right at the door step. Park the car and walk to the downtown area where all the bars and restaurants and shops are located. Close to the night life, but quiet at the same time.
About the owner: Pinon Vacation Rentals
201 F Street
Salida, CO 81201
Why the Owner Chose Salida: This house is old, or it used to be... We have a picture of of Salida 1888 and it's not there, but it shows up in one dated 1892. It was lived in for 80 years by one of the local families. When we bought it we hoped a coat of paint would put it right, however, we ended up tearing the whole back half off! A long year later it was all put back together and is now a thoroughly enjoyable and cute house. With all that updating it is to all intents and purposes a newly built home. In fact it's where Mom and Dad Tanner stay when they come from England to visit us every year, and I always wonder if they will be able to go back.
The reason we bought the place was it's location. It is in the perfect spot. Close enough to walk down to F street where everything is happening, right next to Riverside park and the Arkansas river. The house is easy to find, easy to leave your car and take a walk, easy to hunker down and have some fun with friends. It's really a great place.
