About LaDonna Rankin

This is our home away from home. We have been forced to relocate for work, and don't want to let our little piece of paradise go! We visit it monthly and hope to retire here! We would like to share it for others to enjoy!

LaDonna Rankin purchased this house in 2006

Why LaDonna Rankin chose Salida

Our property feels like you are miles away, but restaurants, shops, art galleries, etc are just 5 minutes to down town. Salida is in the heart of the Rockies and has so many small town parades, county fairs, art walks and is an outdoor mecca of entertainment! June is ArtWalk and FIBARK, July is Brewfest, 4th of July fireworks!

What makes this house unique

This is a retreat atmosphere for relaxation, great views, comfortable place to be with family and friends. We love to sit in the hot tub early morning while it is peaceful out, or later to watch the moon rise. Easy to stay entertained with the pool table and hiking trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented your house from Dec 26th to Jan 1 2011 and wanted to let you

know how much we enjoyed it. It is a beautiful home. We loved the

layout. and it has been taken care of so well and is so clean. The

location was great for us and the views were beautiful. And very

reasonably priced. Everything about it was perfect for us. Also I have

to comment on the little thing that were available for our use like oil,

salt pepper paper towels and those things. That was also very helpful

and makes the home feel even more loving. Thank you so much for letting

us rent this house it made our trip outstanding.

Did Not Want To Leave

  • 5 of 5

This home is a hidden gem tucked away in the hills outside Salida. The kids especially enjoyed exploring the expansive hiking area right out the back door, and adults and kids alike enjoyed the large hot tub. The night sky was amazing, as were the mountain views from the backyard. The home was clean, cozy, and well- stocked. Not too far from Monarch and downtown Salida. At the end of our visit, nobody wanted to leave! Would most definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. It warms our heart as that is exactly what we are striving for. We do try each year to update and improve some area for ourselves and guest to enjoy. The hot tub and kitchen are my favorite. We don't like to leave when we get there either. Happy to have you back.

absolutely beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we got to the house we felt it would be a great place to rest after a day of ATVing with friends. Very clean, easy to find what we needed, hot tub was fabulous and pool table was fun for the guys. The circular driveway came in handy since we had a trailer on the back of our truck. Plenty of parking space!

Great home!!! We had five adults staying & there was plenty of room. The kitchen was stocked with all the needed utensils to make great meals. A nice place to land after a long day of skiing & the hot tub was a wonderful bonus!!!!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Comfy, cozy, and just right. Privacy but close to Salida. Hot tub and pool table a hit. Plenty of bedrooms and baths. Well-equiped kitchen and patio space. The afternoon winter sun out back was wonderful. Christmas lights and decor were festive to make our holiday time magic. Can see the S mountain Christmas tree from here. All good things on Terrace Lane.
