**ABOUT SALIDA**

Salida is THE place to ramp up your adventure meter and blow the gauge far off the high end of the fun scale. Do you want to zip-line, snowmobile, horseback ride, ski or snowboard, soak in a hot spring or absorb an art gallery, eat at a great restaurant, drink a fabulous local wine, beer or distilled liquor, go 4 wheeling or ATVing, visit a ghost town, go whitewater rafting or kayaking, rock and gem hunt, cycle or mountain bike, camp, golf, or fish, climb a 14'er, hike or hunt, listen to music outdoors or go to a fabulous festival? Then High Country Heaven is THE place to be.

Salida, Colorado's largest Historic District, is a close-knit, friendly community that wholly embraces energetic, peaceful, laid back lifestyles. The beautiful & charming town of 5500 people is a short distance from the famed Rainbow Hiking Trail; offers world class mountain biking trails; has been featured on HGTV as the 'Town that Decorates an Entire Mountain;' and is called 'The Little Soho of the West' because of it's prolific, nationally acclaimed artists/galleries and large number of year-round art events.

Each June, the largest whitewater rafting festival in the country, FIBArk (short for First In Boating on The Arkansas), begins on the Tuesday before Father's Day. World champion kayakers compete during 6 days of various competitions, daily/nightly free live music is offered and a fun, festival atmosphere abounds. In the past, New Belgium/Fat Tire has sponsored the event but now, a terrific local brewery, The Eddyline, is the key FIBArk sponsor. Obviously, great beer selections are guaranteed. The most popular and funniest FIBArk event is the Hooligan Race (5:30 pm on the Saturday before Father's Day) where contestant teams construct theme rafts from items such as bales of hay, empty kegs, tires, floats, sofas, & bath tubs then try to navigate over rapids and under the F Street Bridge. Hollering, hooting, and hysteria richly fill the air when rafts pass through the Boat Ramp Rapids as contestants jump for money strung high across the Arkansas. Most rafts eject people, break apart, or completely flip over! The Hooligan Race is a must see event in your life.

Beautiful home nestled in the mountains!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Salida! We came up to ski at Monarch and the snow was wonderful! The location was perfect with only a five minute drive into town and about a twenty five minute drive to Monarch. We also enjoyed hiking the trail head just up the road. The house itself was beautiful on the outside and inside. There were very helpful instructions on small note cards on the walls to act as reminders on taking care of the home. They only reason I gave this home a four out of five stars was due to the beds and the floors. The beds were not the most comfortable, but we finally ended up rotating beds to see if that would help. There are beautiful wood floors through out the whole house, but with this comes very loud creaking as you walk across. Because it is an older home it is completely understandable and did not put a damper on our trip in the least bit! All in all this house suited our needs very nicely and would definitely recommend to anyone! Also, Lisa was fantastic to work with and quickly responded to my many questions all while trying to nangafe several other homes! Thank you for making our family ski trip a memorable one!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a memorable stay at High Country Heaven. As you say, the location is absolutely top notch as is the scenery. Yup, we have creaking floors on the upper level - it's part of the charm of the home. I'll take those floors over loud cars, trucks, honking horns, trains and sounds of a city any day. How funny on the beds. We have high end mattresses to include a new memory foam mattress in the master bedroom. As a matter of fact, we've had a handful of guests ask where we've purchased the mattresses. Thank you for taking such good care of our home. We really appreciate that!

This cabin is very well located and it is beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. It was so well located to everything, but you feel away from everything. The cabin was VERY clean and spacious. We spent Christmas there and they had a small Christmas tree set up for us great home away from home. Our Christmas in the Rockies was perfect. We will definitely be back. Thank you again for great family memories. Bassett family from Kansas

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your family created one of a kind Christmas memories at High Country Heaven and you found everything to your liking. Funny, you said the house was VERY clean (our cleaners are terrific!) and the cleaners said YOU were VERY clean. Thank you for taking such loving care of our special home. We'd welcome you back any time.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two parents and two adult children) just stayed here for a week and we were extremely happy with it. It's close to Salida, but views in all directions are of nature, not buildings. Everything is comfortable and very attractive in the house. This is the most well equipped rental we have ever stayed in, it felt like the owner had anticipated our every need. One tip, those who sleep downstairs may want to use earplugs, because the upstairs floors are squeaky when you walk on them! That was the only imperfection in an otherwise fantastic stay.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review. I so appreciate the detail you went into. THANK YOU!! In terms of the pine floors.....we've tried everything possible to mute the squeaks but to no avail. For us, we know which floor boards to avoid and have gotten used to that part of the charm of High Country Heaven. A few squeaky floor boards upstars is WAY, WAY, WAY better than the sustained suburbia sounds of trains, planes and automobiles. CHEERS to welcomed pine squeaks!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at High Country Heaven. The house is beautifully situated amongst the pines and was exactly as presented. Perfect accommodations for us, our five children, and the most beautiful 2-1/2 year old granddaughter in Colorado.

Nearby Salida is a great touristy town with many attractions. Hiked on the BLM trails down the lane, waded in the river at the park in town, enjoyed the art galleries in town and the concert in the park on Thursday evening.

While we totally understand the no shoes in the house policy, watch out for splinters on the outside deck!

As with many places in Colorado, civilization is encroaching on HCH. Our view across the lane included a pick-up truck with pop up camper for part of the week. And the quiet of the night was interrupted by the neighbor's dog barking and back up alarms from construction machinery (possibly from the fire camp set up across Rte. 50).

Still a wonderful week and we would definitely consider a return visit to HCH in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star rating and your heartfelt review. I'm so glad you and your lovely family thoroughly enjoyed yourselves at the majesty that is High Country Heaven. Your caution about splinters on the back deck is a good one. The high altitude (7200 ft) and the brutal sun thoroughly whack wood over time. Repeated sanding leads to more splinters because of the extreme dryness associated with a high mountain desert. It's tough to compete with Mother Nature. Cheers!

Secluded and Near Town

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this home. There were only four of us traveling but this home could easily accommodate two families comfortably. The views are magnificent and we enjoyed the sunrises from the back deck and the sunsets from the balcony. Our two children enjoyed the land and each day we hiked and hunted for rocks. The house is not only well stocked, but overstocked with sugar, coffee, creamer, hot chocolate, oatmeal and more. I was amazed at how organized this beautiful home was. The shower downstairs is a must-try and the jetted tub was heavenly. Downtown Salida offered a wonderful place named Amicas for pizza and drinks. We went to Amicas twice and ate some very good burgers at The Firefly Restaurant. Royal Gorge and Holy Cross Winery were within 90 minutes away and worth the trip.

I highly recommend this home for relaxation, views, hiking, adventure, kids, family, couples - Anyone wanting a home away from home! The size of this home plus the comfortable amenities makes it so much cheaper than any hotel.

Owner's Response: THANK YOU, I absolutely love your 5 star review. The financial part of me fully understands value and bang for the buck. I am so grateful you brought that up. It makes so much sense to rent a house rather than a hotel room. Is there an outdoor firepit, a BBQ grill, deer that walk on the deck, unobstructed views of a high mountain desert, places for everyone to spread out, linger comfortably and congregate in peace at a hotel? Heck no and not even close! The added amenities of High Country Heaven and it's unparalleled location are....priceless indeed. Thank you for pointing that out. Please return to our slice of heaven. You were wonderful guests and very easy to communicate with - a true pleasure. Thank you again.
