Clean, well-stocked cabin in a great location. The owner was very responsive and personable!!

Tucked away in a neighborhood surrounded by mountains, this cabin was very clean, well-stocked and tastefully decorated. Our group enjoyed these accommodations and the owner, Norman Shaw, was easy to work with and very responsive to our needs. Great vacation rental!!!

Good, but know what to expect

  • 4 of 5

Echoing what a previous review said, there is no way this place sleeps 12 without sleeping bags on the deck. First "Bedroom 1" with the king bed is the loft which obviously lacks some privacy. You could sleep two on the hide-a-bed in the main room and another on the couch next to it, but with the four spots in Bedroom 2, it still only adds up to 9 (and only 7 plates in the cupboard). The two people on the queen in bedroom two had better like to get cozy because the mattress is REALLY hard and sloped so you'll be sliding together all night.

Another thing to be aware of is that while the Internet connection works fine for looking up directions or a restaurant review, it absolutely cannot handle streaming music, much less video. And if the PS2 caught your eye, the only game it has is Grand Theft Auto.

With all that said, it's still a decent cabin and had everything we needed. The owner was very communicative and friendly, the location was great for us, and the butcher shop down the road (Scanga Meat Co.) was a nice little find.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Mark. I will get the bed in the downstairs bedroom fixed this weekend; it is a firm mattress. The wifi is satellite-based and is the best I can provide, as there are no broadband options in the area. I have revised the listing to say I can sleep eight in beds and there are two queen sized air mattress' available. However, I didn't mention them as your part of your five person rental. I appreciate the heads up on the games, I will supply more for future guests.

Salida Cabin - Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy cabin! Our three grown children came in from different parts of the country... everyone agreed that it felt very homey, unlike the typical hotel stays we've done prior years. Mule deer came up to graze during the evening, and views are just Breathtaking!!

The cabin was very clean and had everything you need in a home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We were really happy with the cabin, and it was the perfect distance from Monarch with also being close to downtown Salida. I didn't give it 5 stars because the beds are super uncomfortable and I don't see how you could sleep 12. We were hard pressed to sleep 6 adults and 3 kids, and that was with 3 in a bed. The owner was very easy to work with and even left us a BOGO coupon to ski at Monarch! Get some new mattresses and advertise as sleeps 6 comfortably and I would give 5+ stars happily.
