Recent South Central reviews

  • Clean and comfortable, but a bit noisy

    "Unit has been well maintained as it still appears freshly remodeled. Roomy, clean, and comfortable. A recliner has been added since the photos were taken. A coffee shop is conveniently located at the opposite end of the building. The location is also convenient, although there was quite a bit of road noise in the early evenings, which made it a bit challenging to listen to DVDs. The Internet access worked well in the early evenings, but was unreliable later on. There are two rental units, each with an outside entrance on the second floor of the building. We reserved the other unit (as the photos show, the two units are quite different), but assumed that this was our unit since, when we arrived, only the door to this unit had a lock box in place as described in the rental agreement. The lock box combination that we had been given did not work, however, and I then found that the rental agreement, which I had printed and brought along, did not list a phone number to call if there was a problem. We knocked on the door of the other unit and fortunately a friend of the owner was staying there and had the owner's phone number, which we called to obtain the correct lock box combination. Given our experience accessing the unit, I would recommend, as other reviewers have before, that the two units be separately labeled on the outside entrances (A and B, for example), and that the rental agreement include a phone number that can be used if problems occur. I would also remind potential renters that, depending on your existing insurance/savings, you may not need the damage insurance that is offered by default when you rent the unit online."

  • Third Annual Girls Mini-Spring Break

    "We are a group of three friends and our five daughters ages 9-13 and this is our third year leaving the guys at home and heading to Salida. We arrived at our home in early afternoon and were greeted by a family of deer across the street that remained until evening. It was a lovely sight and our five girls were thrilled (as were the moms)! Once inside the home we were delighted when we looked out the kitchen window and were welcomed by the view - it truly was the view of Angels - just heavenly! As for the house, it was perfect for our vacation. The kitchen was bright, clean, colorful, large and well supplied with all our kitchen needs which is great for a group our size. We had breakfast there each morning and prepared picnic lunches or ate at the home and there were plenty of dishes. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable, warm and three of the four had TVs, although I don't think the girls ever turned them on at night - they were too tired from all their fun. As the house was on a cul-de-sac the girls also went outside a few times just to play and we were so happy to let them. In addition, the home is very close to a trail that leads directly to town and all 8 of us walked it at least once and some of the group four or five times. We truly felt that we were home and wanted for nothing. The owner was easy to work with and very friendly. Also, very gracious. Four days after we got home my one friend realized that two of the home's towels had inadvertently been packed in her bag, by our other friend. I called the owner to let her know that they'd be sent back and she was very kind and said that was fine. (They will arrive soon - I've been assured of that)! Overall, a great visit and time. The home is clean, cozy, close to town, quiet and just has the most beautiful views - and I (we) highly recommend this lovely home!"

  • The Inn at Potter's Inn

    "We loved our stay at The Inn at Potter's Inn / Aspen's Ridge! What a great place! Everything is nice, and the staff have an exceptional knack for decorating and furnishing the facility in just the right way, filling it with beauty that is refreshing. The spacious sitting area around the huge wood fireplace, and under the massive wood beams is beautiful! The staff are great, warm and attentive to details. I recommend it whole heartedly!!"

  • Exceptional

    "The home was exactly as described. Very clean and organized. Well appointed and comfortable. Our group of five adults had plenty of room. The area was quiet but was conveniently located near a main thoroughfare and interstate access as well as grocery, retail stores, pubs and restaurants. Everything was exactly as the owners said it would be, making our arrival and stay stress free and enjoyable. I will definitely book this property in the future if traveling to this area. Thank you to the property owners for always responding to my emails in a timely manner."

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.
