About Chad and Angela Hixon

I am the manager/owner of Arlie Dale's Jug Liquors, a boutique wine shop, which is located on the front side of the building from Rocco's by the river vacation rental. Born and raised in the area my family purchased this property and we re-opened the Liquor Store in 2003. The Jug is the oldest liquor store location in Salida,CO. My wife Angela is a Clinical Aesthetician (skin care specialist) and owns and operates her studio in Salida and also Canon City. She is very particular and over-sees all housekeeping and takes a lot of pride in making sure the comforts of Rocco's is your best experience while staying there. We really loved living in the residence with our dogs for nine years before we turned it into a rental. Living there was absolutely amazing and a lot of fun, we are glad to let everyone else enjoy the same experience!

Chad and Angela Hixon purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Chad and Angela Hixon chose Downtown Salida

We purchased this live/work property because at the time Salida had no liquor stores in the downtown area. This location had historically been a liquor store since prohibition ended except the two years prior to when we purchased it.

What makes this apartment unique

Being an avid kayaker at the time of the purchase life couldn't have been much sweeter for me. Living in a live/work unit that is a liquor store steps from the Salida Whitewater Park was a dream come true! Working on the space with my family and making it ours has been an experience of a lifetime. We hope you enjoy it!

This felt like a home away from home..

Honestly, it's the 2nd time I've stayed at Rocco's, and will keep booking with Chad and Angela. Their house is close to hiking, food,the river, fun shops, so you can leave your car for the weekend and walk/bike everywhere. Love love love it!

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a quick weekend in Salida to do some hiking and generally get out of Denver for a bit. This place was fantastic! Perfect location, beautifully decorated, and generally perfect! We would love to return!
