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 South Central

Our mesa house was completed in the summer of 2012 and our Downtown Bungalow was completed in the fall of 2015. They are both true Salida Gems. 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. The mesa house is special for its incredible spacious views while being right in town. The quietness and open skies offer a wonderful respite from the rest of the world. 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 our mesa house for the views, the peace and seclusion, the beautiful summer gardens, and the horses grazing in the meadow down below the courtyard. 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!

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.

Best of Salida

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for a month beginning July 10, 2014. We have been coming to Salida for years. The property was perfect. Remodeled. Clean. Convenient to downtown. Loved seeing the deer on the mesa early in the morning. We will be returning. Best deal in town. Sharon, the owner, was very nice. We have stayed in many places in Salida. This is the best.

Peace and tranquility yet minutes from historic downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We are in the midlife a fantastic stay here in Salida. The house exceeded our expectations. The location is ideal. It is SO peaceful and we have seen deer, woodpeckers and humming birds from our deck, yet we are 2 minutes from Safeway and 5 minutes from downtown by bike. The house is extremely well equipped and immaculate. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming all the way from England & staying with us here on the mesa! We are happy that you have been able to take advantage of the bikes for use here & have been cruising around town. It is very peaceful here on the mesa, lots of fresh air to breathe and yet so close to all the amenities! We hope to see you again!

Lovely property not far from downtown Salida

  • 5 of 5

This guest house was a pleasant surprise for our family after staying at a vacation rental that we were not very pleased with on our road trip. The owner was very responsive in advance of our trip, and she was very pleasant and helpful when we met her. The house was perfect for myself, my husband and our 4 year old daughter. It was impeccably done with everything we needed. And downtown was a short walk from the house. We would definitely stay again when going through this area.
