Property description

NO HIDDEN FEES---CLEANING & TAXES INCLUDED (this saves a lot, be sure to compare). Contact me directly (jacoby@missouri.edu or 720-255-6707)) for special 8% discount. Sumner listings are gone, but autumn iis full of possibilities in Salida. September and October are, arguably, the best times of year here. You can still hike, road bike, mountain bike in and around Salida. Or, just RELAX and enjoy the 270 degree views from the new addition to what was already the finest deck in the valley, or lounge on the patio, where the views are just as good. If you can bring yourself to come inside, watch the huge HD-TV! No hidden costs make this place a great value for a week-long vacation or a weekend get-away. You can go mountain biking or hiking on all the new trails on S mountain. The new North Backbone Trailhead is just 1.2 miles from the house. Over 3 miles of sweet singletrack, perfect for both biking and hiking, that connects with the rest of the ARKANSAS HILLS TRAIL SYSTEM (Backbone, South Backbone, Front Side, and others). On the other side of the valley (only minutes away), the Little Rainbow Trail now links with the Double Rainbow Trail. They are also available to bikers and hikers for four-season fun. See link below for more information (thanks to Salida Mountain Trails and Absolute Bikes). Exploring our attractive town is always fun. We, the owners (college professors), stay at our lovely Salida vacation home at least two months per year. That's how we know it is ready for your comfort, recreation and relaxation. The view from the 600 square foot deck is second to none and includes broad expanses of the Sangre de Cristo and Sawatch Mountain Ranges and the Continental Divide. Chaffee County has more 14,000 foot mountains than any county in the country. The ones visible from the deck include Mount Shavano (14,229’) and Mount Antero (14,269’). Many other snow-capped peaks are visible including Mount Ouray (13,973’).

The patio, just outside one bedroom, is a smaller, more intimate outdoor space. An ancient pinon pine provides shade and privacy. A lovely rock garden is a serene foreground to the spectacular backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range and Mount Ouray. This is also the view, through two floor to ceiling windows and a glass door, from the bed in this bedroom.

The main living area has an open floor plan and is furnished with a combination of new, very comfortable seating and antique heirlooms. The living room has four floor to ceiling windows, so one can enjoy the spectacular views in complete comfort. The two main bedrooms are separated by the living area and hallway.

Each has its own full bathroom, providing quiet and privacy for two couples or a family, not to mention HUGE VIEWS through floor-to-cieling windows. The third bedroom doubles as the 'electronics room.' The WiFi router is there, as is a fifty inch flat screen HD-TV with more then 50 channels via satellite and a DVD/VCR combo. This room also has a new fold-out couch for viewing or sleeping. Needless to say, the view is magnificent through the large window.

The full kitchen has all amenities and opens on to the main living area. Immediately adjacent is the dining area, which easily seats six adults.

Location

The North Backbone Trailhead is 1.2 miles from the house, providing easy access to the best hiking and mountain biking in the Salida vicinity. Run the river in a raft or kayak (inflatable kayaks or 'duckies' are easy, fun, exciting, and available for rent), The hiking and mountain biking are world famous, Monarch Ski & Snowboard area is less that 30 minutes on beautiful roads without traffic, a far cry from the weekend road rally to Summit County on on I-70, Monarch has the best snow in Colorado (Wolf Creek may dispute this claim, but no other resort comes close) and recently opened 'extreme terrain' called Mirkwood Basin, Other activities include, Road Biking, Aspen Viewing, and Riding ATVs, Dirt Bikes and Snowmobiles

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are college professors at Mizzou (Biological Engineering, Special Education). The flexibility in our schedules and wireless access allow us to spend time in our Salida vacation home (VRBO 99827). That's why we know they are ready for your relaxation and enjoyment.

Why the Owner Chose Salida, CO, USA:
No place else has Salida's combination of hiking, mountain biking, skiing and river running. The town is charming. The downtown area has many galleries and boutiques in historic buildings, but it is removed from routes 50 and 285. This gives it a quiet, off-the-beaten path feel. It's a privelege just existing in such a beautiful setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best views in the valley from the patio, deck and through floor to ceiling windows throughout the house.
