Centrally located near all of our planned adventures!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean, views are incredible! This is not a fancy schmancy type of rental, and it's not completely secluded, but if you are looking for a nice cabin near Salida, not in town with access to the Little Arkansas river and plenty of acreage to wander than this is it!

SO much better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this place justice. It is absolutely beautiful in person. There are views in every direction. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. There were 5 adults & 6 kids in our party and everyone had enough space to stretch out & relax. If you are in the area for rafting or the hot springs, this place is perfect.

Beautiful cabins

  • 5 of 5

I rented both Post Office Ranch Log Cabins for a family reunion (16 people in all). 7 adults and 1 child slept in this cabin and there was room for 2 more people. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated.

The cabin is 10 minutes outside of Salida, but is secluded from the highway so it feels very private. Dean quickly answered all of my questions by email and was very friendly in person. We all loved the craftsmanship of the cabins, the gorgeous views of the mountains, and the close proximity to so many activities. My brother and uncle enjoyed (catch and release) fishing in the pond. It was also nice to have a fully stocked linen cabinet, kitchen, and access to a washer and dryer.

We stayed in July; the temperature in the cabins was perfectly comfortable and it was even cool outside at night. There were a lot of biting flies and mosquitoes in the pastures, but DEET kept them off. I highly recommend both of these cabins!!

Very pretty cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. We came with 4 couples over spring break to ski monarch. It's perfectly located: 20 minutes to the mountain, 20 minutes to buena vista and 10 minutes to salida where there's lots to do. The cabin had a beautiful backdrop of the mountains and we left our windows open each night so we could hear the sounds of the nearby creek echoing off the mountains. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. I would highly recommend.
