Are you someone who appreciates and wants to show others the beauty and tranquility of this amazing, relaxing piece of heaven? Do you love the sound of a stream from any open window in the house? Come stay in our quiet, clean getaway! We LOVE it and know you (and your children or grandchildren) will too.
It is a 1200 square feet retreat, and has been detailed to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
The house itself has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a living room with two futons -- all totaling two queen sized beds, two full sized beds, and two twin beds. The kitchen is fully equipped for any meal, fresh ground coffee, an apres ski treat, or family barbeque. The kitchen table sits six, with room for three more at the breakfast bar. The house sits on more than an acre, which lends itself to short or long walks, enjoying the stream (which runs year round, and is just yards from the house), smelling the fresh mountain air, sitting outside and reading a book -- or doing some artwork!
The nearby town of Salida boasts many activities: art galleries galore, indoor hot springs pool, bowling, hatchery, lakes, biking, hiking, fly fishing, white water rafting, winery, live theatre, dining, pubs, summer and holiday events, horseback riding, go-kart riding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling . . . . Do all of that -- and then -- come back to our hideaway and watch wildlife, have a glass of wine by the stream, play horseshoes or badmitten, read a book, take some pictures, see a movie, cook a feast, listen to music, and sleep to the sound of the Cherry Creek right outside your window. We have books, movies, satellite TV, DVD and VCR capacity.
This is a year-round playground! Summer hikes, winter moonlight snowshoeing (snowshoes provided for three), mushroom hunts, and fall color photography. There is never a bad time to visit.
For parents and grandparents: Know that there are books, toys and games, a pack-n-play with crib sheets, bathroom step stool, and booster seat for a little one!

I live in the Denver area, and love bringing my two children up to the cabin for weekend getaways. We use the cabin whenever we get a chance, but we also enjoy sharing it with other families!
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2001
The entire area offers an unlimited number of activities for couples, families, and individuals. The views, the fresh air, the mountain smells, the rushing stream... how can you even narrow down the best part? As a family, we have had a number of unforgettable experiences -- from the white water rafting and ziplining to quiet family movie nights and night hikes. This area is hands down our favorite place to be... we plan our trips to the cabin as frequently as our schedule will allow... and we always have a difficult time leaving.
One of the best things about this cabin is the water! The stream and the sound of running water is truly relaxing. The house is clean, comfortable, and perfectly located for the many activities the Salida area has to offer. It is perfect for a family, an adventurer, an artist, or a reader. Salida is a slice of heaven, and we know anyone who spends any time there would agree!
Just wanted to tell you and we had a wonderful stay in your lovely cabin. What a perfect setting with the creek on one side and the pond on the other. I like the paint colors and decorative items you've chosen. Also enjoyed the various artwork. We appreciated it being very clean and well-organized.
Thanks again for sharing your home retreat.
Absolutely great!! We spent our days hunting and our nights at the cabin. This cabin was clean and very quite. We were able to meet some very nice people in the area and gained life long friendships. If your looking for a clean quite place you need to come here.
The porch view of the woods and bubbling brook are quite amazing. The hideaway is very accommodating and comfortable. Satellite TV was nice for a rainy afternoon. Full sized kitchen was great to cook in. Communication with owner was excellent - flood light was out and quickly replaced. No longer has a hot tub - please update website. A natural gas fire pit would be perfect in the spot where the hot tub was.
This was a wonderful time for a getaway and the house was just as described in the site! Tanya was quick on answering all my questions and was very helpful! The house was clean, inviting and tastefully decorated! Love the stream that was just steps away and very peaceful! The neigbors dogs were so friendly and great alarms and just loved to come and visit! Would recommend this property for anyone that wants to just get away and unplug! Thanks Tanya!
We loved the well stocked cabin with the stream running peacefully outside and getting to sit in the hot tub! We even saw a bear:) The owner was very attentive and helpful, and the cabin had everything you could need. My girls loved to explore around the stream, and we went rafting and horseback riding nearby. Mom loved the Mt Princeton hot springs! We look forward to going back!
We had a lovely time here for our anniversary. The house was in good shape and the directions to get there were fairly easy to follow. The hot tub's water level was a little low and sort of murky, but we got in and enjoyed it anyway. This place is nestled into the forest which makes it seem very secluded despite the neighbors just on the other side of the dirt road, who invited their friends over to shoot guns one evening while we were there. Other than that, it was very quiet (save for the babbling brook, one of the best sounds in existence). We were close enough to go into Salida a few times and also up to Buena Vista to visit some hot springs, and took a nice hike near Monarch Pass one morning too. I recommend the cabin to anyone who likes the idea of being secluded but with folks nearby in case anything happens, and who wants to be "out in the woods" without being too far away from civilization.
This cabin is ideally located, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to the nearest one, Salida, to be convenient. It is a super clean, well stocked, comfortable cabin. The nearby stream provides a very soothing environment and is a real treat while relaxing in the hot tub. There are many activities, namely, whitewater rafting, skiing, ATVing, hiking, shopping, exploring ghost towns, swimming in hot springs pools, all within an hours drive, and most are within 30 minutes. The chances are good that me and my family will choose this location again in the future and I highly recommend that you consider doing the same!
