About the Property

Three bedroom / two bath, large kitchen, great family room - no pets, no smoking

Escape & enjoy the mountains, summer or winter. At 10,000 feet, bordered by the national forest ... but only a 25 minute drive to town for supplies. They even have a Walmart there. Sweet!

A short 4 mile drive to ski the slopes (Monarch Mountain) in winter.

We are located on Main Street. We have another deck that hangs over the stream from our empty lots next door, down those rocky stairs. A great lunch spot.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: This home has been in our family for over 30 years. A great escape from the 'rush' of life and the summer heat in August! We have enjoyed many skiing vacations here during snow season. Monarch Mountain day and 1/2 day downhill ski rates are pretty thrifty, and the runs are numerous.

Why the Owner Chose Salida, CO, USA:
Bring a book and relax. Need internet and cell phone service? Do you want 5 star accommodations? Then our mountain home is not for you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Open kitchen area and large living room welcome your family. Lots of deck outside to enjoy. There is a mountain stream on our south property line.
