Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Starry, Starry Nights Casita offers all you need for your stay. My husband and I stay in Salida every year for our anniversary and this was by far our favorite. The size of the living room and bedroom was adequate for all of our luggage and ski gear. The bathroom was beautiful and the kitchen area had all we needed for meals. The name Starry, Starry Nights does not mislead. We stood outside, looked up at the sky and marveled at how many stars we could see. It was incredible. We are very impressed and will be returning next year.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in Salida and was very happy with the Starry Nights Casita. We were allowed to check in early which was great and Ron was an amazing host and resource. We will definitely be returning. Stayed here with a family of four and our dog.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Starry, starry nights is a beautiful place to relax and indulge in the beautiful scenery. The views are amazing! The casita has everything you need. The sleeper sofa as well as the bed are very comfortable. The bathroom is super nice and has a huge shower. The property was clean and had enough space for our family of 4 plus our chocolate lab. Monarch Ski area is about 25 minutes away. The owner is a very charming guy and even offered us to check in way early, if we wanted to. We'd love to come back in the summer and enjoy the peace and quiet on the patio. Please do yourself a favor and book this amazing little casita. The price is unbeatable. Thank you for letting us stay with you!

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.
