About the Property

3 Bed 2 Ba & 1,500 Square Feet Of Newly Renovated Living Space

We welcome you to our beautiful log-faced vacation home settled on a quiet double lot just blocks from downtown Salida. Three bedrooms and two full baths can easily accommodate six. The open, easy flow of the living room, dining room and kitchen provide comfortable entertainment space. There is ample room for a family dinner, a game of cards or a quiet movie in front of the fireplace. Mountain views surround! All this while the home maintains its Old West, small-town appeal. The famous Arkansas River lurks just out of view but across the street!

THE GREEN DOOR is completely furnished, with all the modern conveniences: flat screen televisions (2) with satellite, wireless internet, a fully appointed kitchen, all new appliances: refrigerator/freezer with filtered water/ice, microwave, dishwasher, gas range and oven, toaster oven and wine cooler. Pots, pans, dishes, washer/dryer (bring your own laundry soap) are included. All bathroom/bedroom linens are provided. A spacious outdoor patio with shaded pergola and bbq grill are waiting for your relaxation needs. Our visitors will welcome the over-sized two-car garage, off-street RV parking, and the mountain view from the garage porch.


THE GREEN DOOR is a very comfortable six-block walk to downtown historic Salida where you will find amazing Western movement architecture, art galleries, antique shops, gift shops, and great restaurants. Outdoor activities are abundant in and around Salida year round: hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, hunting, fishing and skiing. The list just goes on and on.

THE GREEN DOOR is happy to welcome children with supervising adults, but we strictly enforce a NO smoking/NO pets policy.

Year Purchased: 2013

About: 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.

Why Salida, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
