Perfect relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This guest house is amazing. My husband and I have stayed on many properties over the years and this one is in our top 3.

The guest house:

Spacious and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a nice dinner. Living room was also nice. We especially liked the separate eating area with a door leading out to a side patio. Windows throughout the house opened and provided a nice breeze keeping it cool even in summer temps. The high ceiling fan worked exceptionally well. There was also a loft with twin beds but we didn't use it. The bedroom was cozy and the bed was fairly comfortable.

The grounds:

The property is amazing with lovely mountain views. Our first night we enjoyed a wonderful sunset and captured some of our best photos. The grass is lucious and green. The flowers around the guest house and owners house are wonderful and well kept.

Hot tub:

What a nice touch. We only enjoyed the hot tub one of our nights there but it was amazing. It gets very dark but the hot tub does have a light if you choose you need it. One thing I will say is that it was hard to turn off. We finally figured it out though. There is also a creek you can walk to that has a nice bubbling flow and seems to be a good place to relax.

The owners:

Very nice couple. Upon arrival expressed to us to just ask if we needed anything. My husband and I like privacy and we didn't even notice they were there.

Overall I would recommend this house to anyone of any age. It was simply pleasant and exactly what we were looking for.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It's just as it appears in the pictures. The views, the pond, the little river, the home. Family of 4 with two teens, a puppy and one last getaway before school started. It was perfect for us. Hiked the S in Salida. Hiked the Continental Divide from Monarch Crest. Relaxed at the homestead in the hot tub. Grilled out and enjoyed the views. Spent most of one day on the zip line over the pond and enjoyed our time together. We'll be back!

We would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We loved the area, the cabin is cute and comfy, it felt like home. Matilda (the owners dog) is friendly, she made herself at home and enjoys the company. While we were there we went trout fishing. The small lakes are not far. We caught our trout limit in a very short period of time (an hour). I recommend this cabin if you want to relax and get away from your busy life even if just for a couple of days. The cabin is pet friendly, saying that, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has allergies or doesn't like pet dander. Overall it's a great place to stay. We plan to go back.

Great. Kids loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location. We went rafting and hiked a 14er. Loved coming back to the absolute quiet and beauty here. The kids zip-lined and the younger ones waded in the pond.

Thank you!
