Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Tucked away in the aspens and overlooking the Little Cochetopa Creek and national forest, our modern vacation home with 1000 square feet is located 10 miles west of Salida, Colorado and 20 minutes/17 miles from Monarch Ski Resort. Spruce Ridge Guest Home is private, secluded and scenic. It is ideal for 1 couple or for a young family of up to 5 using the sofa beds. However, it is not suitable for 5 adults.

Your home away from home is completely furnished. There is a large bedroom with a queen sized bed with soft, luxurious sheets for the ultimate in sleeping comfort, a sleeper sofa, private bath and an outside deck. The living room has a sleeper sofa and/or single bed, an adjacent second bath and two outside decks. The kitchen has all the appliances of home. You'll also find a utility room with washer/dryer, and a pantry and mudroom for your hiking boots, day packs, ski boots, and jackets.

The vacation home is available for short-term and monthly rentals year-round. You'll be staying on our 35 acre llama ranch at 8,450 feet and surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. We are on a county maintained road three miles off of US Hwy 50 and 20 minutes from either Salida or Monarch Ski Resort. Our county road is plowed regularly in the winter as is our driveway. Nevertheless, AWD or 4WD vehicles are advised for any winter vacation in Colorado.

With national forest bordering our ranch on 3 sides, you have unlimited recreation including hiking, world-class whitewater rafting and kayaking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, birdwatching, and fly fishing in the Little Cochetopa Creek that flows right by the cabin. Salida, 10 miles away, boasts the largest downtown historical district and the largest indoor hot springs pool in Colorado. Within a 30 minute drive there are several other hot springs resorts. Salida is also renown for its diverse arts community, galleries and weekend bands.

During the summer, with reservations, you can experience one of our day or overnight llama treks with experienced staff and all equipment provided. Fall provides spectacular colors as the changing aspens contrast with dark green pines. In the winter there’s snowshoeing and cross-country skiing from the cabin, and Monarch Ski and Snowboarding Resort with classic champagne powder is only 20 minutes away. Premier snowmobiling and cross-country ski trails are close by.

We offer a non-smoking environment inside and outside. Because of our llamas and desire to have an allergy-free cabin, pets, including companion pets, are not allowed. Adults and well-behaved children are always welcome.

Our guest cabin is shoe-free inside so bring your slippers of thick socks.

About Dan Jones

My wife and I, Dan and Lillie Jones, have lived on our 35 acre llama ranch since 1991 with 7 llamas that are used for our llama outfitting business. We built the vacation home in 2007 to provide guests like yourself a place to stay in our corner of paradise. As previous guests have said, 'your vacation home is tucked away and secluded, yet easily accessible to summer and winter recreation and is the best kept secret in Colorado.'

Dan Jones purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Dan Jones chose Salida

Our vacation home is beautifully situated on a year-round creek with mountain views and access to millions of acres of year-round recreation. We have treasured our privilege to live here and to share it with others with our year-round modern guest cabin and our outfitting business.

What makes this cabin unique

Many folks enjoy the seclusion, our year-round creek with fishing for brook trout, seeing llamas grazing from three decks and windows, the myriad of on-site and nearby recreation, the 27 plus species of birds around our vacation home, and of course, the stunning Rocky Mountains with the greatest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks (15) in the United States.

Beautiful and clean

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful area and very clean cabin. Would have given a 5 star review but was told the internet was to slow to stream but in reality it was not even usable on the laptop. Email and facebook most of our stay was not usable and sense there was no phone service I had no way to communicate with my daughter 20 miles away who was getting married. In most cases not having internet or Facebook would have been no problem. But I had just got a new phone and the directions to the wedding were in my old phone. Lucky for me I knew what direction to head and got phone service and got in touch with my daughter on facebook. Anyway it is a very nice cabin but the slow internet is much closer to no internet. If you need to stay in touch with some one you probably won't want to stay here but if this is not important it is a beautiful place to stay..

The property was great! Clean, modern and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Dan was a great wealth of knowledge to the area we were staying. The only issue I had was when I was booking the property, nowhere on the site is it state that I needed a 4x4 vehicle. Luckily, there was no snow and things worked out great. So maybe for future tenants, specify a little better on the type of weather conditions for the time of year and whether or not an all wheel drive vehicle will be needed.
