About the property

Luxurious, upscale, new riverfront condo two blocks from downtown Salida!

Enjoy the river right out your back door! Watch boaters float by and take in the serene setting. Everything you need is within walking distance - restaurants, shops, coffee shops & bars. This upscale condo built in 2013 with granite counter tops and an open floor plan has views of the river from a balcony off the master suite and a patio off the kitchen/living area. Despite it being a condo, the walls are almost sound proof due to added insulation in the walls. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, plus a loft with a pull-out couch. Each bedroom has a queen bed. The home is fully equipped with all appliances including a washer & dryer. All linens and towels are provided as well as kitchen cookware.

As winter turns to spring and spring to summer, it's time to think about Salida's many opportunities for warm weather sports and activities: biking, hiking, ziplining, fishing, and kayaking. We availability for the summer season, so check the calendar and book now! The milder weather of spring and the many activities of a Salida summer are just around the corner. We welcome our previous guests and invite new ones to create a base at Riversong and explore Chaffee County for a few days, weeks, or months. We'd be glad to discuss longer stays; just write.

Riversong is licensed as a short-term rental by the state of Colorado and the City of Salida. The Salida business license is #0316.

Amazing home in stellar location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 adults, 2 children and 1 dog met here for a beautiful joint vacation. It met all our needs.

The kitchen was well equipped, beds comfy, nice separation for sleeping with grandparents and dog on floor one and parents and children upstairs. Adults would sit out on patio at night, even saw shooting stars. The short trail down to walk beside or sit and watch the river was so convenient.

Everyhing was clean and fully functioning, and both the owner and local manager checked in with us. We easily walked to town for coffee, souvenir shopping, music in the park, renting tubes, and eating out.

I’ve been vacationing in Salida for about ten years and found Riversong to be the best. Thank you John and Petra for making this home so welcoming to vrbo renters.

Perfect location. Peaceful. Ideal property.

  • 5 of 5

This condo provided everything to make our stay in Salida perfect. Clean, well equipped, peaceful. Private path to the river walk was a bonus. So convenient to downtown and restaurants but peaceful and secluded along the Arkansas River. John is an awesome host. Would definitely stay here again.

Riversong in Salida

The condo itself is beautifully furnished. It was clean and comfortable. The location next to the river, and proximity to downtown Salida, can't be beat. Would definitely stay here again!

So much to do in the Arkansas Valley! Ski at Monarch. Raft, kayak, fish the mighty river from Leadville to Canyon City. Visit the new Brown's Canyon Monument. Bike the expanding trails for all level of riders. Zipline over Royal Gorge. Soak in the area's many hot springs. Salida features many excellent eateries, several craft breweries, wineries and distilleries.
