Why Pinon Vacation Rentals chose Salida

This house is old, or it used to be... We have a picture of of Salida 1888 and it's not there, but it shows up in one dated 1892. It was lived in for 80 years by one of the local families. When we bought it we hoped a coat of paint would put it right, however, we ended up tearing the whole back half off! A long year later it was all put back together and is now a thoroughly enjoyable and cute house. With all that updating it is to all intents and purposes a newly built home. In fact it's where Mom and Dad Tanner stay when they come from England to visit us every year, and I always wonder if they will be able to go back.

The reason we bought the place was it's location. It is in the perfect spot. Close enough to walk down to F street where everything is happening, right next to Riverside park and the Arkansas river. The house is easy to find, easy to leave your car and take a walk, easy to hunker down and have some fun with friends. It's really a great place.

Sweet house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We could tell that the home had been recently remodeled and is extremely well done! Large kitchen, everything that you could need to cook up a feast. Great location, easy walking distance to everything downtown. Nice living room, dining room, 2 nice sized bedrooms, and patio in the back with a BBQ, spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed our stay in Salida!

Fantastic Location and property

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed at our fingertips both inside the house as well as being SO close to everything downtown. We could get to the park area to walk the dog in less than 1 minute! Downtown shopping was also within a couple minutes.

The house was very clean and cozy. It has recently been redone to make it current. The bedrooms were nice sized and the beds comfortable.

It really was the perfect way to spend our Thanksgiving break in the coolest town.

Clean and spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves at Dunwell Cottage over the weekend. The cottage is very well kept and supplied. It also is so much more spacious than we expected. The location to downtown and numerous restaurants, bars, art galleries and sporting activities is great. We will definately be back. Thanks.

Great remodeled house

  • 5 of 5

The Dunwell cottage was perfect. The pictures don't show how big it is, I was surprised. It was perfect for a group of 6, we didn't feel crowded at all. Kitchen is awesome, great for entertaining. We brought our mountain bikes and were able to store them in the shed in the back. Great location as well. Thanks!

Located in Salida, in the heart of the Rockies. There are gorgeous mountain views from anywhere in the city. The house is located a few hundred feet from the Arkansas river, and just across the street from Riverside Park which host lots of festivities throughout the year. Hiking or Mnt. Biking can start right at the door step. Park the car and walk to the downtown area where all the bars and restaurants and shops are located. Close to the night life, but quiet at the same time.
