Nice Property & Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here at this property. It is close to Salida and there are a lot of hiking opportunities in the area. The visitor's office in Salida was able to give us some suggestions for things to do. The house is clean and has everything you need to stay there. The pantry has quite a number of food items, spices, and oils so you don't need to buy a lot of extras. They also have maps and brochures of the area, plus board games and books. It is a great location to see the stars at night. The only disappointment was we had hoped to use the hot tub since that was one of the reasons we chose this property; however, it still was not working. Otherwise, this property is a great choice!

Owner's Response: We always attempt to keep our VRBO property at the highest quality level that includes correcting any mechanical deficiency that happen as quickly as possible. Our policy is to quickly contact the correct a repair company to address the issue. Because we have a list of contacts we generally can resolve the problem in a reasonable amount of time. This particular hot tub problem was addressed and a replacement part was ordered only to have the first delivered part be the wrong one even though original order had the correct information. We know that when on vacation guests expect all things to be perfect after all that is what you have paid for and we assure you that is what we strive to achieve.

Spacious home with views!

  • 5 of 5

Wood's Ridge is a wonderful place! My 3 friends and I stayed there for a ski weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better place for the price. We used the grill one night for dinner, soaked in the hot tub after skiing and enjoyed the views constantly. Although the tv isn't huge, it was big enough to watch the Broncos win the Super Bowl! I would definitely stay there again with friends or my family.

Great location & views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Wood's Ridge, the house is very nicely decorated and has fantastic views. I would highly recommend this property for someone needing rest and relaxation. We had a wonderful time with our family and will return when we can. Did I mention the views of the Rocky Mountains?

Great Place in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

This property was very clean and has spectacular views from the deck. We spent every evening watching the sun set over the 14,000 foot mountains. The house was very spacious, functional, and close to many activities for our family such as the fish hatchery, alpaca farms, the river, and hiking. The "North Backbone" trail is a short walk from the house, and we hiked into Salida for lunch (about 4 miles one way on nice marked trails).

The owners checked in to be sure we had everything we needed. Overall a great stayand a great house!

Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful home! Every time we come to Colorado we stay in Salida at Woods Ridge. The house fits everyone perfectly and they had everything we needed right there at the home and the decor is amazing! Especially loved the hot tube on chilly nights after long days of skiing. We love the town and all the historic aspects. Very close to the mountain and the town. The owners are amazing people who really care about the house and people who are saying there. Diffidently recommend this home for both adults and families. Can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! The views in the photos do not do it justice! We pulled up, walked on to the deck and my adult/teenage children were in awe. While we have numerous activities planned for the week, we almost hate to leave this spectacular place. The home is beautifully decorated and such a comfortable place to relax and enjoy. We feel right at home here! There is plenty of space to enjoy family time together as well as to have quiet time to escape! The owners have not skimped on one single thing! Our first night, we had wildlife visitors. While this is a fabulous remote location, we are close to amenities and the town of Salida itself is adorable. I would highly recommend this property for an adult or family vacation. We had the pleasure of meeting the Woods (owners) while on a brief walk. They are super people who truly care about their home and the visitors they entertain here! It is evident that they love to share their home and their beautiful state! We could not be more thrilled with our choice. And, it did not break the bank! Well worth the cost, especially when compared to others! If you are on the fence.....GO FOR IT!!!
