About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

A quiet retreat in the Colorado Rockies set in the pinon hills north of Salida, Colorado, this recently-completed guest house is a base for year-round adventure or relaxation.

The cottage offers ample parking and a private patio. It features one large bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Additionally, the bedroom has a large closet and a sitting area. The spacious bathroom has a tiled shower. The living room has a full-sized sleeper sofa, adjacent dining area and a 32 inch LCD flat screen HDTV with basic satellite service. Wi-Fi is provided. The cottage is well suited for two couples as the bathroom is accessible from both the living room and the bedroom providing privacy for both sleeping areas. In addition, both sleeping areas exit directly to the outside. Eat in, using the new electric cook top in the kitchen which also has a double sink, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker. Dishes and cooking utensils are supplied.

The cottage is 7 minutes from historic downtown Salida with great restaurants, art galleries, shopping and plentiful free public parking. Ski Monarch and Mt. Princeton Hot Springs are 30 minute drives into the mountains. Additionally, within three miles of the cottage are fishing access to the Arkansas River and fishing at Franz and Sand Lake. Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy rafting, hiking, and mountain biking in the area (http://salidamountaintrails.org/). Sun-filled days and starry, starry nights, and spectacular mountain vistas make this a perfect Rocky Mountain getaway!

Excellent, well priced, cabin to use as 'base camp' for your holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner stayed in this cabin for the first 2 weeks of November, 2017. The owners Ron and his wife Rose are nice, happy people and excellent hosts who had many suggestions on where to visit and what to do.

The cabin itself is situated on the hills near Salida and is well situated for trips to Denver and Aspen, or a thousand different trails and tourist spots. Renting a car is essential for staying here (like most of the US) so please be mindful of this.

The view from the cabin is spectacular and will rival anything you have seen before. If you like nature, this should be on your bucket list. During our stay we saw wild deer, moose/elk, big horn rams and several interesting bird species (search for 'American Bluejay').

Inside, the cabin is well equipped with cable TV, Wifi (good speed) and essentials such as stove, coffee machine, fridge with small freezer tray and a nice large, shower. You will also find a washer and a dryer so you do not need to take different clothes for each day of your stay. The cabin is split into two zones (living room/bedroom) with a thermostat in each for dual temperature control (useful if you want the bedroom nice and warm but not the rest of the cabin).

Outside there is a designated parking area and an area with seating if you want to make use of the BBQ, so probably quite a nice thing to do in the summer time.

I will be recommending this place to my friends and family. My partner is already planning our next stay!

Overall, the place is excellent value for money.

Always enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth stay at Ron's place and it did not disappoint! It now feels like "home away from home" when I go! Nice location just outside of town. Quiet neighborhood to enjoy walks with pups (or alone!). This time I made a trip to Scanga Meats, right down the road. I shouldn't have waited so long to go! Ron and his wife are always welcoming and helpful with directions, places to check out, etc. There is everything you need for cooking meals, throwing something on the grill, sitting outside with a glass of wine! As always, I am planning the next trip back!

Owner's Response: Thanks Caressa. We look forward to having you back in Salida! As for the charger, doesn't everyone who doesn't own a HP laptop just happen to have a HP charger in their crawlspace? Another mystery!
