Our downtown Salida bungalow is currently available nightly, weekly & monthly. Completed in October 2015, it sleeps 2 to 5 people, and is only a few blocks from the river and the heart of downtown Salida. It features a custom kitchen, wood burning stove, hammocks, and a great front porch with incredible mountain views. There is a new, king size ,memory foam bed in one room, a new queen memory form log bed in the 2nd bedroom and a single day bed in the upstairs den. The bungalow is available with the use of 1 or 2 bedrooms. It is amazingly quiet for being downtown as it is situated on a peaceful side street. Email or call us for availability and more info and pictures of our spacious, new, comfy, downtown F. Street Bungalow.

We specialize in creating beautiful healing sunny dwellings. You will find refreshing simple elegance, a peaceful atmosphere, and lots of fresh air to breath. Try soaking in one of the near by hot springs, skiing fresh powder at Monarch ski area, hiking, hanging out by the river, enjoying the sun on the porch, or just lounge in one of the hammocks enjoying the view. We have incredible mountain biking trails and a fun bike bath through town. And of course, no shortage of shopping, antiquing, and dining downtown. We hope you will enjoy Salida and come check out our latest home designs!

About Sharon Borch

I have been in Colorado since 1973 and in Salida for over 20 years. My partner is a native of Colorado. We enjoy the casual life style, the small town atmosphere, great bike riding, friendly people, great entertainment, great weather, recreational opportunities, the river! The mountains! The powder at Monarch!

Sharon Borch purchased this house in 2005

Why Sharon Borch chose Salida

Our Downtown Bungalow was completed in the fall of 2015. It is a true Salida Gem. I have been building custom bungalows in the downtown Salida area since 2003. My passion is for creating comfortable, simple, elegant, sunny and healing spaces. We both have a deep love and appreciation for beauty, and are happy to be able to share this with our guests. Our downtown bungalow offers great views in a new home while being super convenient. It is cozy and fun with hammocks and new beds in both bedrooms.A full new kitchen offers a great spot to cook a good meal, or you can walk a few blocks to enjoy all the great downtown dining choices.

What makes this house unique

We love being downtown because it's fun and convenient! All of my Salida Gem houses are custom built and have a very special feeling about them, from the fun, easy to use kitchens, the fireplaces, to the spacious bedrooms with views. We love being able to walk downtown for dinner and a great concert. The people here are the best!

Excellent and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's F Street bungalow was an excellent place to stay for our vacation. Sharon met us when we arrived and made us feel very welcomed. The bungalow is nearly new, very clean and comfortable. We would stay again if in the area.

Loved the house!

Hammocks in the rooms were a plus and loved relaxing in the hammock by the fire after a long day of skiing. Perfect amount of space for the 5 of us. Thanks!

A perfect property with everything we could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's bungalow offered us every convenience while still retaining the perfect charm of the local culture. It is located in a residential area just west of historical downtown. We loved all the residential architecture in this area and the mule deer that were walking around everywhere. We plan to come back and hope to stay here again when we do!!!!

Excellent house / hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

If you can get this guest house, grab it. The house is great, well maintained, and clean. Sharon was incredibly helpful, and the fires laid in the fireplace while we were skiing were a really nice touch. The view out the windows looks over a field with mountains in the background, and while we were there we watched a red fox hunting and pouncing in the snow - very cool bonus. FYI - I've never given 5 stars before for anything.
