About Julie Jackson

My name is Julie, I have owned the building since 1989. We just remodeled the upstairs to attract short term renters like yourself. I operate my business J2 Softwear downstairs. I make custom polar fleece clothing. Stop in and say hi if you like. If you have any questions about getting around or what to do, where to eat I can help out.

Why Julie Jackson chose Downtown Salida

Our property is located in the largest Historic District in Colorado right downtown in out little town of Salida. The property was built in 1899 and has had many businesses throughout the years, including billiard hall, casino, restaurant and we believe a speakeasy. Come stay and feel the vibe from 117 years of history at your doorstep.

What makes this condo unique

The property is 1 block from the river and the river park. Live music can be heard from the park and from our neighboring tavern, Bensons. There are many restaurants and bars within walking ditance so park your car and enjoy checkiing out town on foot. The back deck offers views of the surrounding mountains while "S" Mountain and its mountain biking trail system is right out the window. Staying downtown you will get a good feel for the flavor of a Historic Mountain Town. The Speakeasy is a licensed short term rental with the city of Salida, License #0404.

A lovely place for a special time in our family.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I delivered a baby girl at the Salida hospital. I have two adult step-children who wanted to meet their sister when she arrived. We reserved the Speakeasy and the "big kids" and their partners were able to enjoy Salida while waiting to meet the baby. The condo is beautiful and right downtown so they were able to really enjoy the local scene.

The owner was SO nice! Once she knew our plan, she reached out to me a number of times to wish me luck with the new baby and make sure everyone at the Speakeasy was happy. Of course, everyone was very comfortable and LOVED the beautiful condo. They had a ton of fun!

We live about 45 minutes away from Salida, but were so impressed with the Speakeasy that we think we might book a night in the future to hang out in Salida with our new little one.

You won't be disappointed with your stay at the Speakeasy!

Wonderful and welcoming weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited about booking this home, we decided to stay 4 nights! Well worth it. Centrally located to all the restaurants and bars. Prime spot for festivals and events! Live music steps away. The owners were very welcoming and courteous.....made sure our whole family was being taken care of!! Can’t wait to come back in the winter for skiing!!

The Speakeasy has great decor and everything you need. Julie was our hostess and was very gracious and communicative. Unfortunately the bar next door has live music and that music sounds like it’s live in the living room. With 1900’s construction and single pane windows the fun folks at the bar could be heard until 1 am! The lack of A/C was a challenge as well. Probably wonderful in winter!

Owner's Response: We couldn’t be more up front in our description of the location of the condo. “If you want to be in the heart of downtown Salida then this is your place. If you are a light sleeper then maybe not. “ Really glad that you liked everything else Barb but maybe a house in the country for you next time! People who book our place enjoy the live music from the deck.and the night life.... not a good fit.

Great Location and Great Accommodations in Downtown

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a few days during spring break to ski at Monarch, and we could not have picked a better spot. The condo is larger than it looks in the pictures, and is decorated/furnished really nice. The sleeping arrangement was perfect for us, as we have two high school aged kids, so they were able to split the sleeping between the second bedroom and the fold-out couch.

The location is only one block from the river and hiking access to the "S" mountain behind town, and all the restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. There are some reviews that mention street noise at night due to the central location, but we did not experience any noise, and we were there Saturday night on St. Patrick's day.

We had two other groups that met in Salida that week for skiing, and they were all jealous of the Speak Easy condo.

The owners were very helpful and communicated immediately when we had any questions, and the whole process was very simple. We are planning a return trip this summer, and once we get our dates finalized we will hopefully be able to reserve this one again. If you are planning a trip to Salida, I would highly recommend the Speak Easy!!

Nicely-outfitted, centrally located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying in this 2br apartment, centrally located in Salida. The place was beautifully decorated with everything we needed for cooking. The place is downtown near several bars with people chatting outside, so earplugs are a necessity (and the apartment came nicely supplied with a few extra, which was key). Salida was terrific and I would definitely consider visiting again.
