We spent a wonderful fall week in Salida. Loved the fall colors, fishing the Arkansas, driving up Independence pass, the Buena Vista river park, the Salida Farmer's Market and live music at Salida Cafe! Tom and Renda from Texas.

How lucky we are to have had all of these days at the Townie, with all of its comforts! Right in the middle of all of the beautiful mountains.

Diana and Richard from Missouri.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely home. It has a really well equipped kitchen and we enjoyed riding bicycles about town. Evenings we used the hiking books to help plan our days. Denise and Rawd from Massachusetts.

We appreciated being in the Townie very much. Many compliments on your very thoughtful appointments. We would definitely consider a lengthy stay with you again.

We absolutely love this place! It made our short stay in Salida so nice just to be in such a wonderful, peaceful house. Denise & Kim from Santa Fe.

We loved your place! It was perfect for us and the bikes enabled us to get around town quickly. It's very cozy and clean, great location, and well stocked. We will stay here again! Fibark 61! Kat and Mark

We have very much enjoyed the Townie. The lighting is great and having the fans has been really important. It is very comfotable. We are amazed that there are spices and every kind of kitchen implement one can imagine.

Better than I expected

  • 5 of 5

This place was much much better than I thought it would be. It is a very clean place with everything you could need. The kitchen appliances are fantastic. There is plenty of silverware and cooking utensils. Management answered when I called and were very helpful. Other than the one phone call I made to them, they leave you alone and provide you with everything you need for your stay.

The location of the house is also really great. It is walking distance to downtown and a few more restaurants off of the other main road. It is 20-30 minutes to Monarch and that was super convenient. There are things to do in the town. There is the River Walk, a Winery and a Bowling alley. There are a few good restaurants too. We really liked Moonlight Pizza and Shallots (A little pricey). 50 Burger was pretty good. And Wallbangers food was very good but the service was meh and crowd there was not our scene.

Overall, the trip was great and everything went off without a hitch.
