Recent Salida property reviews

  • A WONDERFUL summertime vacation!

    "Our two families, with 14 total, spent 7 nights here in June 2014. Our intent was to use the home as a resting place after exploring around Colorado. Yet we enjoyed it so much that we spent more time relaxing in the home than anticipated. The home is more beautiful and spacious than the online photos suggest. It is very tastefully decorated and had all of the amenities we desired. The porches (3) for summertime relaxing were frequently used and enjoyed by our group. The cabin sits overlooking the river which provided a wonderfully relaxing backdrop sound. The views from the cabin are spectacular - mountains and trees! The cabin is accessible off of the highway on only a half mile of good gravel road, yet feels more remote as it is surrounded by trees and has the roaring river as a backdrop. And the convenience of Salida and Walmart is only 25 minutes away. While in the area, we enjoyed rafting at Noah's Ark (and also their Challenge Course was a big hit!), exploring and chipmunks at St. Elmo's, K's Ice Cream in Buena Vista, nearby mountain trail hikes, fishing, and all of our group enjoyed shopping in downtown Salida. The Boathouse for dinner in Salida has great food and casual ambiance, We also took the lift up to the pass at the top of Monarch to stand on the Continental Divide. We can't hardly wait for our next opportunity to visit this area, and to stay in this cabin!!"

  • Great Weekend Getaway

    "My wife and I stayed at the Post Office Ranch Log Cabin this past weekend for her birthday. It was dark when we arrived and Dean was nice enough to drive ahead of us once we entered the property to ensure we didn't make any wrong turns. The cabin was great. You could easily sleep 9 here. We loved having coffee in the morning facing the beautiful mountain range to the South. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend in Poncha Springs/Salida and we'll definitely be coming back to Post Office Ranch!"

  • Beautiful ideal cabin & setting!

    "We recently stayed at this cozy little cabin, & everything was just as it showed in the pictures & more! We skied monarch for three days & it was great coming back to the cabin every night. It was well stocked,with beautiful views & a cozy fireplace. It was the first time we had ever rented a cabin & it was a great experience, we plan on doing it every year!!! The only problem we had was getting our car up to it, but we did manage it, although it was kind of a pain. I would definitely love to stay here again & would recommend to anyone looking for a great getaway!!!"

  • A piece of Heaven!!!

    "My husband and I have returned for the second time! Absolutely perfect once again! We can't say enough about how gorgeous the property is and how wonderful the cabins are! We are planning our third trip there and can't wait to go back! It truly feels like home away from home! The owners keep the cabins immaculate and are there always if you need anything! Great people! Great times!"

Salida Travel Tips

Salida Vacation Rentals in the Heart of Southwest Colorado

Located in the heart of southwest Colorado, Salida is well known for its mountains, Western culture, and lots of outdoor activities and attractions—all of which can be enjoyed with the convenience of your Salida rental found on VRBO.com. Salida is said to be located in the "Heart of the Rockies," right on the Upper Arkansas River Valley and features 12 mountain peaks more than 14,000 feet in elevation. You won't want to forget your camera for these vistas!

Many influences combined to make up the history of Salida and Chaffee County including being originally settled by the Ute tribe. The area also experienced an influx of many other groups including farmers and ranchers, miners, expansionists, and explorers. Each of these groups made a distinct mark that is evident throughout the valley.

Salida Is the Banana Belt of Colorado

Imagine enjoying what is known as the "Banana Belt" from your lovely Salida lodging property. The area received this name because harsh storms are tempered by surrounding mountains. But just minutes away skiers and snowboards and enjoy the exceptional winter conditions at Monarch Mountain. In the summer enjoy rafting, hiking, biking, and a visit to Mesa Verde National Park.

Enjoy All the Amenities of Your Salida Vacation Rental

For your VRBO.com Salida rental, you can choose from South Colorado Mountains cabins, homes and more. Each comes complete with a private kitchen, where you can prepare a picnic lunch for your day's activities or a home-cooked meal afterwards. But you can also enjoy a sumptuous meal at one of Salida or Chafee County's culinary outlets. There are brewpubs, neighborhood bistros, cafés, and fine dining to be found—your group will be surely satisfied.

With all the Salida and your Salida vacation accommodations will provide you and your family or group will be sure to make this a destination favorite to be visited again and again!
