Overview

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!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Ron is such a pleasure to do business with. The Casita is our favorite place to stay in Salida. Unfortunately the word has gotten out about this gem and we have to book well in advance. You feel as though your getting away from the bustle and yet it's a short drive to town. This place has everything you need for your stay. Bed is comfortable. Has a washer and dryer for your own personal use. Views are awesome!

Can't wait for the next trip

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem! This was a second trip back and one of hopefully many more. Fired up the grill this time and enjoyed a glass of wine with dinner out on the little private patio. This was a solo trip with the pups but there is plenty of room for another couple/ friends. Thanks to Ron, the host, found close hiking with very little traffic considering it was the 4th of July holiday. Already planning the return trip!

Great views, private and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Enjoyed walking a choice of 3 circles with our dog in the community. Hiking trails nearby. The Casita is well equipped and maintained. We returned again this summer for another relaxing and enjoyable visit.

Peaceful refuge

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best VRBOs that I have stayed at! The casita is homey and comfortable. The neighborhood is beautiful for walks, mountain views and deer sightings! Dog friendly, which is a great plus. A quick 5 min drive into town. Very functional kitchenette: we cooked all meals. Ron is a gracious host. Already planning my next trip back!
