  • We can't say enough good things about our stay...

    "This was our first experience with VRBO and it could not have been better. This condo was exactly what we were looking for during our visit to Salida. The location was perfect - just a short jaunt to downtown where there are many great dining options (Moonlight Pizza, Benson's Beer Garden, Little Cambodia) and the balcony river view was so beautiful and peaceful. Also, this condo has all of the amenities you could need during your stay and is very comfortable. Thank you to the owner, Maureen, for welcoming us and being great to work with. Our trip to Salida was wonderful due to the amazing hiking around the area and then having this great condo to come home to and relax. I would recommend these accommodations to all my friends and family. Thanks again!"

  • 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"

  • 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!!"

  • Beautiful & Relaxing Cabin

    "This cabin was the perfect place for a quick reunion with old friends. The main floor was open and large, creating a great environment to come together to hangout! The cabin is right on the river and allowed us to enjoy our early morning coffee out on the deck. It was clean, comfortable and we had everything we needed right there. There was also plenty of places nearby for walks & hikes. Its the perfect cabin if you are looking for a place to getaway from your day to day busyness! We hope to be back! The only thing that it doesn't say but would have been helpful to know is the bunks aren't in a room, you come down the stairs and the bunks are just right there. No doors or anything. This wasn't a problem, but might be helpful to know."
