Recent South Central reviews

  • Great house close to town and the river

    "We recently spent a weekend in this house and really enjoyed it. Everything in town is in walking distance. The house itself was well furnished and cozy. We enjoyed the back yard, which has a great view of the nearby mountains, and the sun room, which also has a good view. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy being close to everything in town, you should consider this home."

  • Wonderful cabin and location

    "We enjoyed a week in July at Timberline and it is everything and more than depicted in this site. The view is fantastic with several seating areas, a grill for great dinners and the hot tub is fantastic after a long day of activities in the mountains. The interior of the cabin is both comfortable and tastefully decorated in true mountain spirit. The kitchen is large with newer applicances and great for families. Brenda has everything taken care from clean linens to a large supply of kitchen utensils for those who like to cook like myself. The lower level is great for kids with a pool table/air hockey table, movies and a TV. The upstairs seating area in the loft is perfect for reading at night or checking emails (ugh) if you must. We used to live in Denver and love the Alma location for it's seclusion but close proximity to so many outdoor activities in greater South Park. It is also close to Breck for daily excursions or a nice meal out on the town. This was our first VRBO experience and it could not have been better. My son and I went fly fishing, and the whole family enjoyed white water rafting, hiking, horseback riding etc. etc."

  • A wonderful experience!

    "I chose this home based on past reviews and was not disappointed. What a beautiful home. We felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel! The owners were wonderful to work with and it was a pleasure renting from them. There were 5 of us on this trip and we never felt crowded. Having a garage for the cool evenings and rainy days was a plus! All the beds were perfectly comfortable and the kitchen was amazingly equipped. We saw the sights and will remember this trip for years."

South Central Travel Tips

Southern Colorado Vacation Rentals Offer Beauty in the Mountains

Southern Colorado is an area that’s full of rugged high desert plains and a collection of up to 14,000-foot peaks, rivers that gush with whitewater rapids during the spring, beautiful red-rock outcroppings, and towering sand dunes that are dwarfed by the mountain range set behind them. South Central Colorado was first explored in 1806, some three years after the U.S. made the Louisiana Purchase. A man named Zebulon Pike led the first scouting expedition to what is now known as Pikes Peak but he never actually climbed the mountain that was eventually named after him.

Southern Colorado is well worth a few days of exploration on your vacation due to the vast wonderland of activities and adventures that you and the entire family can embark upon. Southern Colorado vacation rentals and Southern Colorado vacation homes will place you in the heart of the back country. Here, you can set off on a whitewater rafting journey, shop in the historical towns and cities, bike, hike, mountain climb and much more. Imagine spending your vacation in a Lake George cabin deep in the woods near a fishing stream. This can make for a perfectly relaxing vacation, especially since you are never too far from civilization when you need it.

Southern Colorado vacation rentals are complete with all of the amenities needed for your trip. You can enjoy a luxury cabin complete with as many bedrooms as you choose. There are also full baths, living quarters, spacious kitchens, modern electronics such as big screen televisions, DVD players, radios and more. Many of the rentals also have large patios or wraparound decks that are perfect for barbecuing or simple lounging. No need to bring towels, cookware, extra blankets or any other items from home, as these rentals are fully loaded with everything to accommodate you and the family.

Tons to do and see Near Southern Colorado Vacation Homes

Besides the beautiful mountains in the southern Colorado region, there is a ring of smaller cities that offer many alluring attractions. For instance, at the foot of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs vacation rentals offer visitors a chance to step back in time to when the Gold Rush was booming after the discovery of gold in the local spring water. The Gold Rush of the 19th century helped to shape the city’s history and modernity, and today, this has given visitors that opportunity to access the numerous trails and embrace the history of this part of the Rockies.

To the west of the Rockies lies the Royal Gorge and the Florissant Fossil Beds. These two magnificent places are worth a day trip on any vacation. The Royal Gorge offers a chanced to take a literal walk through the ages as this canyon is 1,250 feet deep and 50 feet wide. It’s one of the deepest canyons, while the Florissant Fossil Beds are home to the most amazing fossils you’ll ever see in your lifetime. Thousands of visitors come to see these amazing petrified remains of redwoods, ancient animals and trace fossils

Travel a bit farther from your Southern Colorado lodging and you will discover nearby Cripple Creek vacations, where you can try your luck at low-stakes gambling and other activities. Pueblo and Canon City offer rafting trips, historical museums, camping grounds, mountain biking and superior hiking trails, especially in the San Isabel and Pike national forests. Mountain climbers can brave the Collegiate Peaks near Buena Vista and Salida.

Summer Fun and Winter Bliss at Southern Colorado Vacation Homes

Summer is always a great time to plan a vacation to Colorado. With over 300 days of annual sunshine, the summer months are some of the best in the west. It’s never too hot here as the highs are usually in the mid to low 80s. This makes for a very comfortable summer vacation, as many travelers try to avoid extremely high temperatures in the summertime.

Winter can be great fun for a vacation in the Rockies as well. You can hit the slopes and enjoy almost any snow-related activities that you can think of. Nearly 300 inches of snow fall here every year bring skiers, snowboarders and winter sports fanatics from all over the globe. You can expect to see the first snowfall around September, although it usually snows somewhere in the state every month, except for August (usually). Rainfall for the state brings 16.5 inches each year.

Getting to Southern Colorado Lodging

Most of the time when you fly to Colorado, you will land at Denver International Airport (also known as DIA), and from here, you can rent a car to continue the rest of your journey to Southern Colorado.

There are several highways in the Southern Colorado region that will take you into any of the surrounding cities in the area. However, one of the major highways used in the southernmost part of Colorado is I-25. This highway runs through Las Animas County which is the largest county in the state. I-25 runs straight through almost all of the other cities along the I-25 Corridor and other highways branch out from it. You can find your way to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from here as well as other popular destinations like Trinidad, Lathrop State Park and Cuchara Ski Resort.
