Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

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.

A Relaxing Getaway to Perfection

  • 5 of 5

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.

A wonderful house for friend and family gatherings, very convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This has been by far the best VRBO rental we have ever stayed in. The house is beautiful and has a fantastic layout. Easily accommodated my family of 6 plus my parents. My kids LOVED it (12, 10, 8, and 6 yrs old). Kitchen was well stocked and washer and dryer were great. Beautiful decor. Conveniently located. Only took us about 10-15 minutes to get to the slopes at Monarch. Lisa (property manager) was very helpful and nice!!!!! Thank you for a great trip!!

Beautiful house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days over New Year’s and had a great time. We had 8 adults and 2 children. The house is nicely furnished and we had plenty of room for all of us. The house is in a great location, only 10 minutes from Salida and Monarch ski resort. We will definitely be back!

Lisa Webb purchased this house in 2017

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.

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.
