Carriage House Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The king bed was comfortable and have two bathrooms was a plus.

The location was so convenient to down town and the grocery store.

Loved the walks along the river and on the trail west of town. We recommend this vacation rental for anyone planning a trip to Salida.

Quaint location!

  • 5 of 5

This little carriage house is very cozy. My family of 4 stayed here over Christmas and loved it. It is very quaint and has a lot of character. The upstairs bedrooms are just lovely. I love having the extra space and the location is the best so close to downtown shopping & eating. We are hoping to make this a tradition! Patty was great to work with as well.

Great little apartment.

  • 5 of 5

I give the Carriage House a 5 star rating not because it's a 5 star accommodation but because it is exactly as the Owner describes it. It has a funky upstairs layout where you have to go through the master bedroom to get to the second bedroom and through that to get to the 2nd bathroom. No big deal - we just let our boys have the second bathroom and we used the one downstairs. And yes, the stairs are steep, nothing major, you just have to be careful. If your family has privacy issues this may not be the location for you. The boys later told me they were cold in the back bedroom (a big snow storm went through while we were there and the temp dropped to single digits). Patty had texted to ask if everything is ok and if the back room was warm enough - so that was the boys fault for not speaking up earlier. The beds are also regular singles so they were a bit short for my teenage boys who are both close to 6', but they were happy to each have their own bed and bedroom.

The best part of this place is the location. We've stayed in 4 VRBO's in salida and this was definitely the best location. You are quite literally in the middle of downtown. We go to Salida most winters and next time we have just our family we will definitely look into rebooking this place.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 6 weeks at the Carriage House with my dog last fall while working at the hospital. It was perfect! The house has a lot of charm and is within walking or biking distance of everything you need. Patty made sure that I was comfortable during my stay, and the house is stocked with all of the comforts of home. It's a great little getaway spot in beautiful Salida.
