Property description

This dwelling was originally a log house kit, bought from Montgomery Ward, in 1940. It has since been refaced twice. Because of its age, you’ll find some quaint adaptations to accommodate its log house exterior frame. The latest remodel is in a southwestern fashion; that's why we affectionately refer to it as the Little Hacienda in Silt.

This little house, located 17 west of the Glenwood Springs area, is a one-bedroom house, with a sleeper-sofa. The one bathroom has a walk-in shower, a deep soaker tub, one toilet and Jack and Jill sinks. There is also an air conditioner and a gas fireplace. A special amenity is an in-house washer and dryer. All linens and towels are provided.

The bedroom has a queen-size bed, a desk, an end table and a chest of drawers. Connected to the bedroom is a walk-in closet.

The living room houses the sleeper-sofa (queen-size), a rocking chair, coffee table, and entertainment center.
For entertainment there is satellite television, Wi-Fi within the house, a book library and various games.

The kitchen has a stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee machine, dishwasher and refrigerator. The fully-furnished kitchen also includes a dining table for four, a charming old-fashioned ice box and all needed cooking and dining utensils. Although guests provide their own meals, there is a variety of seasonings, coffee and basic cooking staples to get started. A gas grill is available on the front porch with all necessary grilling tools.

The large front porch has a couple of double swings, chairs, side tables and a gas grill. The side entrance to the house allows for secure storage of various outdoor gear.

With our off-road parking we can easily accommodate travelers who may have trailers, from small tow-behinds to large horse trailers and four-place snowmobile trailers.

This little house is perfect for a temporary place to stay due to a job transfer or a visit with a local resident. Our Little Hacienda in Silt is a great solution to many needs. We welcome both short and long term visits.

Owners, Rich and Laura live on site, which makes checking in and out convenient. Any suggestions, questions, issues or concerns can be addressed immediately.

Slightly off the beaten path, this charming little southwestern hacienda is the perfect home away from home for a couple, a small family or group.

Centrally located, it is a short trip to Rifle and about 17 miles west of the Glenwood Springs area, where there is the world-famous Glenwood Hot Springs and Spa, the Fairy Caves Amusement Park, an entertaining Vaudeville production and plenty of dining choices.

In an hour heading west, you can reach Grand Junction, the wine country in Palisade or heading southeast you can visit the Aspen/Snowmass areas by means of an easy access to I-70 where you can enjoy a day of skiing or sightseeing. A little closer to Glenwood Springs at the Sunlight Mountain Ski area provides a full day of fun as well.

Heading north, for outdoor enthusiasts, there is access to the White River National Forest offering opportunities to view wildlife, hunt, fish, hike, snowmobile, cross-country ski, snowshoe, four–wheel drive, or take a leisurely drive to enjoy the views.

In just minutes you may enjoy water recreations at Harvey and Rifle Gap State Parks. And access to the Colorado River is just minutes away where you can fly-fish and raft. Within 10 miles is a moderate hiking trail to view the Rifle Arch.

This quaint house is surrounded by mountainous ridges and foothills, as well as rolling farm areas. From the front porch to the south you can view the different seasons on the North and South Mamm Peak mountain range, located in the White River National Forest. Looking to the west, the Bookcliffs of Rifle are visible.

This one bedroom, full bath home provides you ample space for relaxing after a long day of fun. There is a sleeper sofa (queen size) in the living room to accommodate two additional guests. The bathroom is accessible from the bedroom and living room area so guests staying in the living room need not disturb those in the bedroom.

A fully-equipped kitchen allows you the freedom to eat on your own schedule. Relax in the living room and enjoy satellite TV, wireless internet, or a book, while enjoying the warmth of a gas fireplace. The large front porch allows you to relax outdoors as you grill your meal or stargaze.

With our off-road parking we can easily accommodate travelers who may have trailers, from small tow-behinds to large horse trailers and four place snowmobile trailers.

If you are looking for a temporary place to stay because of a job transfer or you are visiting a local resident, our little house is a great solution to your needs. We welcome both short and long term stays.

Owners, Rich and Laura live on site which makes checking in and out convenient and any suggestions, questions, issues or concerns can be addressed immediately.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Rich and Laura are long-term residents of the Western Slope of Colorado, having been in this area for over 30 years. Being outdoor enthusiasts, our interests range from hiking, hunting, fishing, boating, backpacking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing as well as gardening. We are more than happy to share our knowledge of this area with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Silt, CO, USA:
Working with the Colorado Division of Wildlife at the Glenwood Springs State Fish Hatchery for over 20 years, helped us fall in love with the area. We purchased the house in 2002 to be our retirement home. The sense of relaxation occurs when sitting on the porch viewing the mountain ranges. Since our initial purchase and our actual retirement we decided to build a larger home on the property and now would like to share this little hacienda with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is a quaint, southwestern style home with an adobe-type fireplace and cute tile work throughout the kitchen and bathroom. The covered front porch, with log pillars, entices you to sit down, relax, enjoy the view and life.
