About Patty

Living in Salida since 1985, Patty and I enjoy Salida with our two teen age children. We enjoy the small town benefits. biking walking and visiting with our neighbors. We love the outdoors and there is plenty to do here.

Patty purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Patty chose South Central

Living in Salida since 1985, Patty and I worked endlessly hard to acquire this ideally located downtown property. We knew the location with comfort makes this property the perfect get away retreat. It is walking or biking distance from everything.

What makes this cottage unique

Tucked away in a down town court yard , very cozy.

wonderful location

  • 3 of 5

This little house is beautiful...I loved her art work and it is easily accessible to town...1/4 of a need to search for parking. However, was soooo needs air-conditioning if she is going to rent it in the summer. And no TV in this day and age...why not? is really not a good place for old me. The ground floor is on several levels...steps up and steps down. One has to be careful not to fall or trip. Even my husband tripped once.

But cannot beat the location and it is decorated beautifully!!!!!

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.
