About Paul Ramsey
We are a family of five from Denver who love the outdoors and the historic town of Salida. We are looking forward to sharing our beautiful home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Paul Ramsey purchased this House in 2015
Why Paul Ramsey chose Salida
The solitude here is unmatched. The house is perched on a ridge just minutes from downtown Salida, and every room and window offers beautiful views. Perhaps the most relaxing part of the house is being able to wake in the morning and see views from any room. As you drink your morning coffee, keep a lookout for deer making their way across the property.

The owners were easy to communicate with and gave great suggestions on where to go. The house was clean and comfortable with lots of extra blankets and things you might need! We enjoyed the remoteness and great views. It was perfect for our relaxing girls weekend :-)
One of the best vacation rentals I’ve stayed at!
We had a perfect home to compliment an awesome weekend in Salida! It fit our group of 8 adults & 3 infants perfectly. The house & kitchen are well stocked with everything you need & in great condition. The house & property are beautiful & fostered a great get together with good friends.
Communication with the owner was easy as well. I have nothing bad to say & look forward to staying here again in the future!
Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood with breathtaking views. We enjoyed hikes, skiing at Monarch Mountain, swimming in the hot springs at the Aquatic Center, as well as a train ride through the Royal Gorge Railway. Such a relaxing vacation. The house was perfect for our 2 families. The kids had plenty to keep them from getting bored this week.
Everything and More!
The house was everything and more! Plenty of space for two families, 6 adults and 2 children to spread out and be comfortable. The home had everything we needed to cook meals, play games and just to relax. Breath taking views from every window! We absolutely loved our time here. Thank you so much!
Great place well set up and equipped for families of all ages
Beautiful views and amenities, just feels comfortable
Great location. Plenty of room. Great views. Close to Monarch Mountain.
Great experience. 25 minute drive to Monarch Mountain. Plenty of room to spread out. Detailed instructions for the house and amenities allowed for a seemless check in and out. Great views. Appreciate the stars at night, pretty neat. Would book again. Thank you for sharing your house.
Salida and the Arkansas River Valley are an outdoor enthusiasts' heaven in any season. According to The Boston Globe, "Salida Colorado, near Monarch Mountain, is the real deal for ski towns. Surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest, Salida has old-fashioned store fronts filled with ski and rafting gear, and earthy restaurants to fuel the outdoorsy set that lives and plays here. There’s a reason you have never heard of Salida -- or Monarch for that matter - it's because the locals want to keep their cool stash a secret." Monarch is a quick 25 minute drive from Salida and offers great skiing and snowboarding for beginners to experts. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing is also a favorite activity with limitless options within a quick drive. In the summer, the Arkansas offers some of the the best fishing, rafting, and kayaking to be found anywhere. Extensive hiking and mountain biking trails in and around Salida could occupy enthusiasts for weeks without seeing the same trail twice.
For those seeking a more cultural experience, Salida does not disappoint. Throughout the summer, there are music and art festivals nearly every weekend. Numerous art galleries dot downtown as well.
Finally, there is no shortage of great restaurnts in downtown Salida; The Fritz, Laughing Ladies, Poco, and Amica's are some of our favorites.
