View from front deck towards Collegiate Peaks! Our house is located in the beautiful Northern San Luis Valley. There is so much to explore here! We are only 3.7 miles straight West of Valley View Hot Springs, 3 miles from Joyful Journey Hot Springs, 35 min from beautiful town of Salida, 45 min from Princeton Hot Springs, 45 min from Monarch Ski resort, 90 min from Wolf Creek ski resort. We are at the base of the Sangre De Christo mountains with many 14,000 ft peaks of the San Juan range.
Families w/kids will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We have a large shed which contains all outdoor furniture and other accessories. 4-wheelers and Hot Tub are not to be used!! Feel free to use the patio furniture, but return to shed prior to departure. There is a large "Heavy" marble table on our back deck, please do not move as it is very heavy! Master bedroom is a Queen plus, other two bedrooms are also queen size beds.
This house is our 2nd home and our future retirement home. We have had friends and family stay and they all absolutely love it so we decided to open it up to others to share the beauty of the Northern San Luis Valley and all it has to offer! We are down there 3-4 times per year and always dread leaving it. If you choose to stay while exploring the Valley, you will not regret it! You will have full use of the house except the "locked" Master bedroom closet.

Our neighbor (1/4 mile down the road) Kim will greet/welcome you upon your arrival day, We are always available via text message and/or phone.
There may also be times we will open it up to guests (other 2 bedrooms) while we are there, again it will be a case-by-case basis depending if we have friends/family staying with us, and would be at a reduced rate.
Please note - we have limited towels. More can be arranged with a request ahead of time. We've found if we leave 20 towels, 20 towels either get used or some disappear. If you will be going to the Hot Springs, river rafting or any other activities requiring towels, highly recommend you bring your own beach towels with you. With that said, there is SO much to experience within an hour of our place. River rafting, Gold stream trout fishing, many hot springs, train excursions (summer concerts ask us about this!!), hiking trails, bat cave (witness this!!), National sand dunes, Royal Gorge, Horse back riding in the mountains with Granite Mountain Outfitters, Skiing, snowboarding, rent jeeps and snowmobiles... we even have the famous Alligator farm which has the alligator from the movie "Happy Gilmore" just down the road. There are only a few restaurants close by (Villa Grove and Saguache), best options are Salida (our favorite town!!) which has many restaurants, craft brews and lot's of shopping... and much more! Ask us for recommendations and definitely check out the space on Airbnb where we have listed many of our favorite places to go!
- Gate must be shut & locked each time you leave the property.
- As of 1 Jun '17, the cleaning charge will be $75.00. This is a pass-through cost from having to pay a house cleaner each time a visitor stays at our house. This ensures when you arrive, the house is cleaned thoroughly throughout.
We are a couple who loves to travel having been to Jamaica, Mexico, the Bahama's, Hawaii as well as about every State in the USA. We also have been on a few cruises. I'm a 30-year AF Veteran but we both still have full time jobs. I'm fortunate to travel with my company and like to add on a few days with work travel, many times Karen is able to join me. We are non-smokers, casual drinkers and love to meet and get to know others... many of which are now long-time friends! This house is our pre-retirement/vacation home and now you too can enjoy a 1,600SF house within driving distance to just about anything you'd like to do in CO!
