  • So quiet and deeply relaxing

    "I came to The Way Back Inn to get way off the map and that is EXACTLY what happened. No internet, no phone, no other human presence. The wilderness all around is breathtaking with plenty of places to simply walk out the door and into the hills. Lots to explore without ever getting in your car. Thank you"

  • This is the one you want!

    "It's clear that lot of attention has gone into making this home a perfect vacation getaway. The house was immaculate. The views from the porch swing in the front, the views from the deck and hot tub in the back, and the views from every window throughout the house never let you forget that you're in the majestic Rockies. The property is very private. And even though it feels (quite blissfully) like you're totally disconnected from all of civilization, the drive out to local markets and restaurants is a just matter of minutes. Downtown Salida is unique and charming. It's very much like an art community of a larger city that found a way to escape and thrive on its own. Along the edge of the shops and eateries is a riverside park. It's beautiful and has a nice playground. Our favorite day was driving up to the ghost town of St. Elmo. The drive was spectacular. We passed many other landmarks along the way. We also meant to visit the local brewery (Elevation) but got distracted with our home base. I mean, we had a hike right out the back door, a private hot tub nestled among the most amazing views of the mountains, a romantic two-person shower, a closet full of games, music, and movies, a huge flatscreen television, wi-fi, a nice book collection, a pool table (alongside a large window with yet another gorgeous view), a popcorn maker, a large kitchen stocked with all the necessities, and delivery from local restaurants just a phone call away. Why leave? It was in fact was very hard to leave. Our four year old actually cried when we left. He said he was going to miss "our Colorado home and Spike." Our kids all made friends with the friendly cat (Spike) who lives on the property (his set-up is in the garage, he only comes in if you want him to), and they all fell in love with him. They cannot wait to visit Spike and our Colorado home again. My husband and I are already talking about returning to see what it's like in the summer. This place is magical! And the owners are super nice. They are attentive yet hands-off. Check-in was as simple as opening a lockbox. There was a detailed guide in the house and cabinets were even labeled. Really, I can't say enough great things about this place. We loved everything about it!"

  • Creek Side is the Best of the Best!

    "We have lived in this part of the country for 20 years and discovered this valley as a favorite getaway destination. Because we've been coming here for to this area for so long, we've had a chance to stay at several vacation rentals the canyon. Creekside is our favorite by far, for so many reasons. 1. Private Hot Springs. This is completely natural soak with NO Chemicals. 2. Hidden away location. Many of the vacation rentals in the area are located on the main road but Creek Side is on a backroad. While we were there, the ONLY noise we heard was birds chirping in the daytime and a resident owl hooting at night. 3. Protected from the wind. The house itself is nestled in a little gulch overlooking the creek, and the hot pool is several yards further down at creekside. This was great for us since our stay was during Christmas when the temps were down in the single digits, snow was on the ground and the winds were sometimes high. Even so, we were able to comfortably soak day and night. A hot soak under the stars in the dead of winter is VERY romantic! 4. Gorgeous house. Creek Side is a cut above the average vacation rental. It has the feel of an old-fashioned ski lodge with the traditional Swiss style A frame. The photos do not do it justice because the house is larger than it seems from the pictures and there are countless little touches that give the place a cozy atmosphere that made me feel right at home. We especially loved the down bedding and hot water heat that made the house so comfy. 5. Arkansas River Valley activities. GREAT TOURIST DESTINATION with things to do for every season - from skiing in the winter to white water rafting in the summer to antiquing and dining out. 6. Pets Welcome. We don't enjoy a stay in a place that disallows pets. Even so, this place is CLEAN! I have stayed at pet friendly accommodations that look and feel like animals have been there. Not so at Creekside. The cabin, grounds, and pool are scrupulously clean and sanitary. 7. Owner Managed. This is a labor of love and you don't know the value of an owner managed rental until something goes wrong. One of our dogs got loose on Christmas Day and we were heartbroken. He bolted into the forest and we didn't know where to start looking. The property owner, left his family and spent Christmas evening and night helping us search. If not for that help, we might never have found our little dog who was lost in a national forest. Highly recommended!"
