The famous Arkansas River lurks just out of view but across the street!

About Vada J Ward, Owner
Our family has spent most of our lives in Colorado and we love it more every day. After a two-year search for the 'perfect' spot to share with my grown children and grandchildren - and to retire within the splendor of the Rocky Mountains, I fell instantly in love with Salida. What's not to love? - The amazing Arkansas River, the architecture, the thriving downtown with only ONE traffic light, the nearby sulpher pools, the endless outdoor activities, the safety and freedom for children to explore everywhere, and the quiet, quiet, quiet neighborhoods...................Ah, happiness is a short walk to the river, a good book, a roaring fire, fresh air, and the gorgeous surrounding mountain scenery.
Vada J Ward, Owner purchased this House in 2013
Why Vada J Ward, Owner chose Salida
This particular property was studied carefully before the purchase became reality. The home is wholly on one floor with wide passages from room to room. It's even wheelchair accessible! It's easily cared for; it's totally remodeled, all the fixtures and appliances are new (and most of the furnishings). It's sparkling clean throughout! Yet, it retains that Old West flavor which speaks eloquently for Salida itself.
What makes this House unique
The home sits on a double lot and by Spring will begin to be professionally landscaped beyond the patio and pergola to the garage. There is plenty of room to spread out: room for the unique oversized two-car garage with shaded porch and a view of the mountains; room for the largest RV; and more space for added growth. There's even room for the daily visiting deer! Walk across the street and throw your fishing line in the Arkansas River!

Love The Green Door!
This is the second time we have stayed at The Green Door. The location is easy walking to downtown Salida, very close to the river, and a great living set up for two families with kids. The kitchen is very well equipped with all that you could need and the patio is a wonderful place to relax. We'll be back again soon!
Best Ever Ski Trip
We started skiing Monarch in 2000, have been going back ever since. It's a great value, my Grandchildren learned to ski there on Grandpa's dime. We started staying at the Green Door about seven years ago, it's a great house with the best stocked kitchen I've ever rented. The town of Salida has many good to great places to eat and the people are very friendly. I will return as long as I am able.
House was very comfortable with all the amenities
House is adorable. Very updated and comfortable. There's and outdoor patio surrounded by beautiful flowers and plants. We saw deer right out our door! It was a fabulous place to stay
Property is within walking distance of downtown Salida so we rarely used our car.
We DO try hard to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. Remember: The ASPEN are turning now. They should be in their glory here around mid-October. We're waiting for you.
We loved the Green door! Perfect location,beautiful,clean, cozy home away from home!
We would highly recommend this property. We were a family of six and had plenty of room. We even cooked a gumbo one night and had friends over who were also vacationing in Salida. The location is perfect! Walking distance to downtown and right on highway that leads to Buena Vista or Hwy 50. We rode the bikes all over Salida that Mrs. Ward so generously allowed us to use. (In the garage). The house is so cozy and beautiful! We loved the patio and grilled one night. (Also had friends over that night). There were plenty of towels for everyone. She also provided us with BIG towels that we used when we went to Princeton Hotsprings. We will return to the Green Door!
What a pleasure to have read your glowing interest in our home! We constantly try to anticipate our guests' needs/wants. Aspen are already beginning to turn gold. Fall is our loveliest season. Come back!
Loved it it felt like home very comfortable very well clean and maintained
My family and I enjoyed our stay. We had a great time. The house is very clean and beautiful I fell in love with the house . We felt very comfortable. I would recommend anyone to stay there. Beautiful patio. They made us feel like we were home. Loved it.
Soon....it will be golden aspen-viewing season again! A few days in our lovely Arkansas
River Valley surrounded by sky-high mountain vistas and glowing aspen......ah, what a treat!
Still love Salida! The Greendoor is a great place to set up camp.
The Greendoor provided everything we needed in our family of 6. My two young girls loved to play on the patio, watch for frequent visiting deer, and relax on the couch to some TV! Temperatures were warm in Salida (mid 80's) so the house was very warm at night, even with fans and windows open. The bathrooms were awesome! One has a clawfoot tub and the other an updated shower. The kitchen is fully updated with great appliances for any type of cooking. The owner and manager (Paco) made the stay feel like we were very valued customers. The only negatives we're the noise and heat. The house is right on a busy main Street in Salida, so we constantly had motorcycle and semi truck noise. If you are looking for a house in town and just a walk away from shops, restaurants, and the river the Greendoor is a great find.
Many 14,000 foot peaks for hiking, climbing or mountain biking in the nearby Collegiate Peaks Mountain range. Monarch Ski & Snowboard area is less than 30 minutes on beautiful roads without traffic. The Arkansas River is a short WALK for world-class fly fishing and world class white water rafting.
