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.
Update - 2017 - - we are receiving a LOT of inquiries. While I will respond to the home's availability by email (we maintain an in-house calendar .... not vrbo's), your reservation is NOT confirmed until we receive your deposit and you receive a written confirmation from our reservation manager. Call me directly if needed. Nelson Amen 210-834-1991
UPDATE APRIL 2017 - - we are installing an arctic entry on the side porch. The exterior storage closet is removed, and wall sections are stored on the front porch. Please pardon our "under construction" condition.
UPDATE MARCH 2017 - - while are large deck over the stream remains usable (and very nice), the large amounts of heavy snow this winter have collapsed (as in ... destroyed) the rear exterior deck shown in the 3rd photo. Please keep clear of the broken lumber. Another summer project for your gracious host!

4 miles from the Monarch Mountain downhill skiing. Located in the very small mining town of Monarch, CO (formerly Garfield, CO). Elevation approx. 10,000 ft. A 25 minute drive down to Salida, CO. Lots to do there as well.
WE ARE NOT USING THE CALENDAR FUNCTION AS SHOWN AT THIS TIME. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
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. There is a separate secluded deck down at the stream, overhanging the water. Access is through our empty lots next door. A great lunch spot and fun place to cool off.
