This is a beautiful 2100 square foot Colorado home with new paint and furniture. Just 10 minutes from the Monarch Mountain ski area, historic Salida and the Arkansas river nestled in the shadows of Mt Shavano.
This property is centrally located just minutes away from hundreds of hiking, biking, ATV and Jeep trails and to the Arkansas river with over 9 rafting companies that specialize in navigating the river up to and including class 5 rapids. The Arkansas is also known for fishing and kayaking and hosts many competitive sporting events a year.
Walking distance from the front door is the Mountain Spirit Winery, a lovely must visit located on the south fork of the Arkansas River.
Please keep in mind that in the winter, front wheel/four-wheel drive vehicles or vehicle chains may be required to maneuver not only the short gravel road leading to the house, but will certainly be required when traversing the pass to get to Monarch Mountain.

Why Lisa Webb chose Salida
We chose this house because of the location and its proximity to Monarch Mountain, Salida and the so many other family friendly things to experience.
What makes this House unique
We are still amazed at the beauty as we sit on the large patio and look toward the west. The sunsets are unmatched by anywhere in the world.

Terrific stay, great location
The house is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Plenty of room and clean. Lisa is extremely helpful. Look forward to visiting again.
Everything was as expected. Great views, easy access, plenty of room for us and additional family members. Lisa was easy to work with and returned our deposit very quickly! Would stay here again!
Lovely home in convenient location.
Very nice home that was perfect for two families on a ski vacation. It had everything we needed, and the owner was very helpful and accommodating. The home is between Salida and Monarch mountain, and right by a ski rental and a winery!
A Relaxing Getaway to Perfection
The pictures are perfect for capturing this house. The house was perfectly set up for our family and one other, but could easily be set up for an extra couple. Having 2 master suites was great and didn't cause any issues for the two couples. The house was so clean and the views to wake up to were spectacular. We all had space to do puzzles, play games, cook, watch TV or take a nap. It was also a great location for skiing, wine tasting, shopping and I took in a spa at a nearby resort/spa. Couldn't have asked for a better place to meet up with friends or family for a getaway.
The owner was also very responsive and easy to get ahold of. Wifi was great and we had no issues with 2 teenagers :) We really couldn't have picked a better location to stay at. This would be a great location anytime of the year.
Planning on coming back!
Great mountain vista views, excellent accessibility to the main road, 1min from Mt Shavano ski shop. Great ski getaway home with responsive property maintainers.
A wonderful house for friend and family gatherings, very convenient location!
This house was perfect for us and our group of friends and family for a week long ski trip to Monarch. Enjoyed having dinners and games around the large dining room table. We saw a group of 8 deer one evening. The house feels new and modern, and the tap water was very good fresh mountain spring water. Two of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms with shower and tub, and there is a 3rd bathroom for the other 2 bedrooms. Skiing at Monarch was incredible; we went during the weekdays. No lines, excellent children's ski school, and plenty of stellar slopes and views. During the evenings we would explore Salida. Good beer and pizzerias, and the indoor hot springs aquadic center is great to relax the muscles after a day of skiing.
There are many great restaurants in and around the Salida area. For breakfast we recommend the Patio Pancake house on Hwy. 50 in Salida. Lunch is always a treat at Sweeties in downtown Salida for great sandwiches on homemade breads! Mexican food always brings to mind Los Girasoles on hwy. 50 Salida. Also a great place for food "Boathouse", located on the Arkansas River in downtown Salida with great outdoor seating overlooking the river. Italian will be my favorite at Grimo's in Poncha Springs.
