Great house, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located to enjoy the best of Salida - you can mountain bike or kayak right from the house, and are a quick drive to great hiking. When you come back, just stroll to town for food, then come back to the house to relax by the fire on your own private beach while you watch the river flow by. Then get up and do it again the next day! Also very close to some hot springs to relax your muscles after so many outdoor activities. Highly recommended.

Best Place in Salida!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home several times - I forget how many. It is my "go to" place to stay in Salida.

It is a cozy little house with everything you might need for your stay. It is located right on the river and is within walking distance of everything downtown and the park.

The backyard - with it's seating and fire pit - may be my favorite place in Salida. I have spent a lot of time just hanging out watching the river, rafters, kayakers, and reading.

really cute place.. great location... nice vibe.

  • 5 of 5

property was clean and well maintained... really cute. place is bigger in person than pictures show..... wish we had stayed one more night :-) skied Monarch and it was an easy drive and great place to relax after skiing. only comment would be that there were big gorgeous deer? elk? not sure -- not a native here.. so lots of poop to avoid in the driveway and on the walk about 30 feet from the home out back to the river... we will definitely come back in the summer!!

Nice stay but mosey neighbor

  • 3 of 5

The home was nice and clean. The next-door neighbor was a bit of an issue as he watched every move we made and watched us every time we were outside. A 6 foot privacy fence down the side of the property should take care of that problem :-) The home was in a great location that's close to shopping and restaurants and on the river. There's a nice beach area down by the water to sit and enjoy your evening's or to just watch the people floating down the rapids. Right next-door is also a tube/rental shop which makes it convenient if ypu have the need to rent water equipment. The AC in the master bedroom does not work but leaving the windows open on a cool night, is plenty of cool air.

Relaxing stay on the Arkansas River

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this house, right on the Arkansas river and a very short walk to downtown Salida. The house was clean, and although older was clearly remodeled. They had all the amenities we needed (dishes, cookware, etc) to stay comfortably for a week. We were able to easily cook and eat in when we wanted to. The BBQ grill did run out of fuel after one use, so you may want to check that to be sure there is fuel before starting cooking. We stayed with our two 11 year old daughters, and they really enjoyed it too. So that they wouldn't have to both share a bed, we did bring a twin air mattress and there was plenty of room for it in the bedroom (in fact, we could have brought the full size if we wanted - the bedrooms are large). Both bedrooms are connected by a door, which might be nice for families with younger kids. There are chairs down by the water with a fire pit, which was fun for us to hang out by in the evenings. It is a very short walk from the house to the water - with 11 year olds, we felt very comfortable being at the water while they were inside at night (it really is a very short distance). Its a great location, right next to a tubing rental place and a bike rental place. We rented tubes, put them in at the property, and floated right down the play park. Its very easy to walk downtown - we brought bikes but it was so close that walking was almost easier. The Safeway grocery store is also only a couple blocks away. Also, its easy to run or bike across the bridge to get onto the Salida trails. My husband and I were able to go out on quick runs or mountain bike rides in the mornings and we saw families mountain biking together on the trails as well (all the trails have ratings - so you can stick to the green trails if you're looking to keep it fairly easy or hit the black trails if you are looking for a tough challenge). During the days, we rented double inflatable kayaks and took them down the lower part of the Arkansas into town, rented standup paddle boards and took them to Cottonwood Lake, took a drive to St Elmo, and went to Mount Princeton Hot Springs. We all had a great time, and came home relaxed. Would definitely recommend this place, and would love to stay here again.
