House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

We will transact accepting check and PayPal when time allows.

Beautiful mountain home with great views of the Chalk Cliffs. Brazilian tile floors, gourmet kitchen, and decorator touches throughout! Three bedrooms with two master bedrooms (one on main floor) and one double bunkroom. Enjoy the spectacular views from the floor to ceiling windows in the main level family room AND from the wrap-around deck. Jacuzzi, Direct TV, fully stocked kitchen, gas grill, and many more amenities. Main level fire place, plus two fireplaces downstairs, including the second master. New for 2015 - solar panels supply the majority of the house's energy needs.

No house has better views of the Chalk Cliffs. Also, we are very near the Mt. Princeton hot springs and the shortcut that takes you the back way to Buena Vista.

When booking, we will provide you with our listing of our favorite restaurants, hikes, shops, and activities in the area.

Home is 5 minutes from Mount Princeton Resort but privately situated on close to three acres. You get the best of both worlds: privacy and access!

The best thing about Nathrop is all that there is to do close by including hiking, soaking at the hot springs, berry picking, visiting the fish hatchery, world class rafting on the Arkansas River, golf, biking, fishing, skiing, ATV riding and much more. Don't want to cook? Buena Vista is less than 15 minutes away and Salida is 25 minutes south with great restaurants, antiquing and Salida's notable art scene. We have compiled an activity book with many different options to keep you busy.

Small pets are welcome. There is a fully fenced-in dog run.

The two master bedrooms have queen beds and the double bunkroom has two bunkbeds, each with a twin on top and a full bed on the bottom.

Why The Owner chose Nathrop

We brought here because it is quiet and peaceful, but is also a great place for family get-togethers. This is a beautiful and unique home. It is the perfect antidote for stress and the city. Drive through the South Park Valley from Denver and feel the stress melt away - no matter what the season.

What makes this house unique

We gather with family, hike the numerous trails, fish, golf, or just sit on the balcony with binoculars and the bird book (both provided).

Loved staying in this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home is wonderful with spectacular cliff view and near 360 degree views of mountains and valley. It is very quiet and peaceful, away from it all, but only a short drive in to the charming town of Buena Vista, or to the conveniences of Salida. We enjoyed nearby river rafting, as well as visiting the St. Elmo "ghost town" and hiking trails. Great escape from August heat. The house was lovely, spacious, and well-equipped. The kids enjoyed the fooshball table and the many games. Hope to return!
