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.

Highly recommend!

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.

Cozy gem close to downtown Salida

  • 5 of 5

We needed a one night stay on our way down to Creede and Patty was accommodating. We arrived to a rain storm and a rainbow over the adobe brick style shared home and it was just a perfect location and stay for us. We loved the exposed brick and her attention to detail as well as the proximity to downtown. I would highly recommend!

Perfect Location, everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is wonderful. It really had everything we needed and is very close to the downtown shops and restaurants. It is more spacious than I expected - especially the living room, which has more space than the photos show. The second bedroom with the twin beds was perfect for our young children, and the main bedroom is very large. It's great for families who don't mind getting to the second bedroom through the main bedroom. The kitchen is cozy, but we only had breakfast and lunch there, so we didn't mind the small amount of counter space. There are so many close restaurants (PERFECT location!) I was happy to eat dinner out. We enjoyed spending time in the patio/garden area out front - nice to have the table and chairs there. I will say that the stairs are extremely steep - use the railing so you don't fall. Everyone in our party slipped at least once, but no one fell (whew!). Patty was very helpful and friendly, checking in via text several times, leaving us a badminton game, etc. Would definitely stay there again.

Weird layout but it did the trick.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was a 1 bed, 1 bath but was under construction to add a bedroom and 1/2 bath. Very weird layout with full bath downstairs off kitchen while bedroom is upstairs but the addition of the second bedroom and half bath upstairs may help that a bit.

The bed was extremely comfortable (and I'm picky)! The location is awesome. You can walk to everything in Historic downtown Salida. The owners are very nice but sometimes take a bit to return calls. The lack of A/C was a problem for us even with the fans.

The garden is lovely. And the owners supply stuff that isn't always included like nice smelling soap at each sink, shampoo, conditioner, coffee, sugar, creamer, laundry detergent, sandwich bags, tinfoil, and even a chocolate bar.

You can tell the owners put love into this place and care about their customers.
