About the Property

3 bedroom, 1 bathroom with Mountain Views, backs up to river

Imagine yourself staying in a 1200 sq. ft, 3 bedroom, 1 bath log home, on a quiet lane. You wake up, drinking coffee on the deck, nestled among tall aspen and spruce trees, backing up to a mountain stream, with views of The Continental Divide Alpine Range from the large, front windows. Shut your eyes, and roll back to the 50's - knotty pine, original rounded refrigerator and stove, retro chairs and table, BUT wireless internet, flat screen TV's, down comforters, gas fireplace. Forget your busy outside life, and relax in the cool, mountain air.
The house is located approximately 8 miles from a super Walmart in Salida, and 8 miles up to Monarch Ski area, a 10 minute drive. Picture yourself- skiing fresh powder in the morning, lunch at the house, then back for 3 more hours of skiing. Or, cross country skiing. Or, snowmobiling with the family, dogsledding thru the meadows, snowshoeing on mountain trails. You'd think this was high season, but, oh the summers! You would love mountain biking the Monarch Crest Trai; it is right outside the front door. Then, you could hike and ski the 13ers and 14ers, as seen from the living room windows. Next day? Take your friends and family on a world class white water rafting or kayaking on the Arkansas River. And fishing - it's a Gold Medal River! Fly fishing is some of the best in the world. Next day, drive up to the many ghost towns, 4 wheel adventure riding, cross country horseback riding, hiking the Continental Trail or Colorado Trail. 30 minutes to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Grab a good book, chair, and head back behind the house to the Little Arkansas River for quiet time.

Creature comforts? 53in. flat panel TV in living room, 24 in. TV in large bedroom, DVD, VHS, assortment of DVD's, books, games. Satellite internet, gas fireplace, large deck with porch, outdoor gas grill, small porch in front. King sized bed, queen beds in other two bedrooms. Beds all have 400+ Egyptian Cotton Sheets, down mattress covers, down comforters, 100% Egyptian cotton towels. Front loading washer and dryer with iron.
Six people in 3 bedrooms is perfect, but if needed, there's a full pull out sofa bed in the living room.
The town of Salida is 8 miles east on hwy 50, and offers many amenities: wonderful restaurants, art galleries, live music, hot springs pool, white water rafting, pubs, horseback riding, mountain and road biking, fly fishing in the Gold Medal Arkansas river, bowling, hiking and biking trails all within walking distance of downtown. This is a all year round paradise!

Book 6 nights, and the 7th night is free!
