Beautiful treasure in Salida

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in a home through VRBO in Aspen, Co and was disappointed and I hesitated before staying at another VRBO. I am so glad I had a change of heart. This was a true treat and a wonderful stay. The bedding was crisp and clean as was the entire home. We loved every part of or stay and the home was perfect in every way. We will definitely be back. It was in perfect condition, the beds and pillows very comfortable and the Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Thank you for the great experience!!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at this house. It suited us perfectly and was a great home base to walk into town as well as skip up to Monarch for a day of skiing. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the Sunflower Cottage for walking into the famous historic district of downtown Salida and the "short jaunt" up to Monarch to ski!

Great place

My family really enjoyed our time at the sunflower cottage. Plenty of room for a family of four, and very close to downtown Salida. I highly recommend it.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in the Cottage and had a very good experience. The house was very clean and everything worked great. It is within easy walking distance of downtown. The weather was nice so we were able to have lunch outside on the deck. There is also a big fenced yard for the grandkids to play in. We look forward to returning here on future trips to Salida.

does the river count?
Car: recommended

This is outdoor and small-town enthusiasts heaven. There are 12 '14teener peaks' within an hour, gold metal fly-fishing waters and some of the finest white-water rafting in the US. Ski nearby at family-friendly Monarch and/or enjoy excellent restaurants in the heart of downtown on 'F Street'.
