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.
Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Salida, CO, USA:
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.
