Where you’ll be

Salida, Colorado, United States

WE ARE NOT LOCATED IN SALIDA, CO AS STATED ABOVE. Our vacation home is in Garfield, about 16 miles west. We have just rebuilt our rear outside deck (Oct 2017). The lower deck over the stream is also available, and the front porch swing awaits for you and your morning coffee. We are adding a boot room / mud room on the side porch, which is our main entry. As of Jan 2019 it is under construction and 50% complete. Feel free to use it for snowy items. Our projected completion is late 2019. It's a fun project, after all!
