About Patty

I moved to Chaffee County, Colorado in 1985 to work and play in the mountains. I worked at Monarch Ski Area as the Director of Snowcat Tours. I also started and owned a rafting photography business, Sunshine Studio, on the Arkansas River. The area has endless opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Patty purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty chose South Central

My wife and I always wanted a property near Mt. Princeton with geothermal hot water. We were blessed with this house which was located on Chalk Creek and had a geothermal spring that produces geothermal water at six gallons per minute. That's over 300 gallons an hour and over 4000 gallons a day of mineral enriched hot therapeutic soaking water.

What makes this house unique

Soaking in hot water wataching the cosmos. Other activities are endless, such as hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, rafting, rock hounding, horse back riding, mountaineering, and on and on and on. All those who wander are not always lost.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at the beautiful mountain cabin. Amazing views, wildlife and activities kept us busy. There are no words to explain the pool at night under the stars. We hope to visit again, and make this our getaway for many years to come.

Owner overcharged me - stay somewhere else!

  • 1 of 5

The owner charged me twice for our stay. I could understand an honest mistake, but it took over two months and lots of hassle before I finally got my money back. Don't risk your credit card number with this owner!

The highlight of creek side hot springs cabin is hands down the hot springs fed hot tub !

  • 4 of 5

Creek side hot springs cabin was our 2015 Christmas house. We moved in and immediately started "living" there. This is our second Christmas house we have rented in the last 3 years. We wanted to be higher in the mountains and when we saw the hot springs fed hot tub we were on it..the hot tub was busy day and night. Kids and adults were in it. The cabin is very accommodating . Easy to live in. Beautiful area . Papa fed deer right out of his hand. Grammy had a lovely place to walk and view the beauty. Kids -Little and big- sledded right out the back door. Memories were made .

Great time . . . at another property.

  • 1 of 5

the cabin owners called and cancelled us at the last minute, the evening before scheduled arrival. We made our own arrangements for a great stay nearby. Make reservations at this property at your own risk.

Owner's Response: As the owner and reservationist of the property I attempt to respond to the many inquiries promptly. At times I pull the car over to do this. I made a mistake and did not realize it until the last minute. It was awful. I immediately found another rental with a private hot spring pool. It was a miracle on a weekend as most places are booked. It is more expensive and larger. As a courtesy due to the small community and nature of our business , the owners offered it at the same price as our cabin. I offered a gift of wine to ease the disruption. I was very sorry these guests decided to choose a larger more public facility. I think they would have enjoyed The Tree House Hot Springs. . I am still very sorry. I work very hard to do my best and offer a quality experience. Sincerely, Patty

Perfect Halloween Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I rented this wonderful cabin with another couple for Halloween weekend. We wanted to escape the craziness in Denver and just have a peaceful weekend (no trick or treaters here). This cabin is absolutely perfect for a quiet retreat! The hot spring fed hot tub is amazing after a long hike in one of the beautiful surrounding areas! Buena Vista and Salida provide plenty of great hikes that are a short drive from the cabin. There are a few other cabins nearby, but everything was so quiet. The robes, and towels are great for the short jaunt to the hot tub. There are also plenty of movies and games that will make you forget you don't have internet or cell service. The stars really come alive at night when outside in the hot tub, with no light pollution. For the real adventurous, take the polar bear plunge in Chalk Creek and warm up in the hot tub afterwards. I highly recommend this cabin and will be renting again in the future!

We did enjoy our stay there. Was fairly secluded. Not the best view but there was some parts we did not like. We were told to call when we arrived and we would go over our stay. I called 4-5 times and left several voice mails and never got a return call. We went ahead and went to the house and found the key and stayed but not being able to talk to owner made us miss out on the hot tub because we didn't know how to cool it down. We later figured this out on out own but it was not until the morning of our departure. WE never got a call back. I would definitely stay again but at the cost of the property I think we should have had better communication.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry for your trouble with the hot spring ! The evening you stayed was Homecoming night. We were on the local football field watching our daughter in the Royalty Parade. My husband was her escort. I was taking pictures etc. We have very explicit directions with a picture of the plumbing on the counter of the cabin. I am so sorry you were unable to see this. As far as the view, Mt Princetons Chalk Cliffs from the living room seems to catch most folks eye. We will take your comments into consideration. Thank you. We do generally prefer a two night stay. This seems to be the reason why. It does take a bit to settle in. Creekside is a place to relax . Starting off on a bad note , then checking out at eleven does not allow time to realize how special it is. Again we apologize. We were enjoying a family moment with our daughter the homecoming queen finalist. I was not able to answer the phone. Im sorry you didn't see the directions. We will find a better way to direct guests to adjust the pool. Thank you for your comments . Patty
