Property description

Cabin is ideal for 1-4 people. Due to the rural nature of the property, it is not recommended for young children.

Come stay at the secluded Roundhouse and experience true privacy and relaxation on over twelve acres of the best Colorado has to offer! This unique get-away is located in the middle of a beautiful meadow surrounded by the sounds of the South Arkansas River and the rustling of large cottonwoods. The stunning sunsets over the Sawatch Mountain Range are easily beheld from the large great room windows. The beetle-kill tongue and groove ceiling spirals twenty feet high to a dome skylight that welcomes natural light during the day and the twinkle of stars at night. Even the views from the multiple bedroom windows beckon a second look. Spotting the abundant wildlife is a favorite and often unavoidable pastime. Anglers enjoy fishing in over 900 feet of private South Arkansas River right out the back door!

The Roundhouse has everything you’ll need on your vacation adventure, complete with full kitchen, a wood burning stove, and a washer and dryer. There are two, private bedrooms, one with a California king bed and one with a double bed. The spacious loft is a great place to play games or watch a movie. Enjoy satellite TV in the living room with over 200 channels for your viewing entertainment.

Conveniently located in the Arkansas River Valley’s banana belt, the Roundhouse is sunny and dry most of the winter yet only approximately ten minutes from the powder at Monarch Mountain. Downtown Salida is an approximately ten minute drive in the opposite direction where you can find a variety of restaurants, art galleries, a hot springs pool, and fun shops to explore. Salida also has a thriving nightlife with an upbeat and casual atmosphere and great music.

Book early – don’t miss out on spending your next vacation at the Roundhouse! Please feel free to contact us for more details or additional photos!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Thank you for your interest in our Salida cabin. After a few visits to the area, we fell in love with the community and all the area has to offer. We decided to spend as much time in Salida as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Salida, CO, USA:
We wanted to build a cabin with a small environmental footprint to minimize our impact to this beautiful piece of paradise. Our cabin's round design consists of 27 four foot panels put together in the shape of a circle (over half of the panels are windows or full-light doors). This type of construction helps to keep the cabin toasty warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We also wanted to maximize the view given the scenery is beautiful in every direction. The wood used was formaldehyde-free and the paint and caulk are non-toxic. We tried to implement green building practices wherever possible, including the gypcrete for the in-floor radiant heat or the super efficient boiler (which also supplies endless hot water in case of back-to-back showers!).

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Not only is the cabin wonderful and the land beautiful (I know, we are biased!), the location of the property makes it ideal for fun any time of the year. The cabin is off of a year-round maintained county road. We do get snow, which we love, but it quickly melts in the unique Salida climate (we ensure the snow is plowed on the driveway during our guests' stay, if necessary). Monarch Mountain or the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs are great destinations in the winter. In the summer, whitewater rafting, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, and fishing are great activities to do on a vacation if you like the outdoors (my husband would argue fishing is great EVERY day). Of course, the town of Salida (as well as other near-by towns) are fun any day of the year. Thanks again for looking...and if you choose to stay at the Roundhouse, we hope you and your family or friends enjoy our cabin as much as we do!
