The Colorado mountain town of Salida sits in the middle of the state, literally in the “Heart of the Rockies,” about 25 minutes from our cabins. Our town is a welcoming retreat for everyone, from the solo outdoors adventure seeker to couples yearning for a romantic escape or families who wish to ‘Play and Stay’ in the glorious Rocky Mountains. Here one can be inspired by the endless mountain activities, ample opportunities to shop, and just plain old fun times for families.
In case you are unfamiliar, Buena Vista means ‘beautiful view’ in Spanish. And the name truly says it all. Resting at roughly 8,000 feet elevation, the town of Buena Vista Colorado is nestled between the majestic Continental Divide to the West and the Fourmile Recreation Area foothills to the East, with the impressive Arkansas River running through town. This understated central Colorado town is a well-kept secret for Colorado outdoor enthusiasts. Check out the unique riverside trail systems at the end of Main Street on the Arkansas River. These trails not only cross the river and access other seemingly endless trail systems, but also link the river park to the newly developed part of Buena Vista downtown called South Main.The true beauty of Buena Vista is its laid-back atmosphere and unobstructed mountain views. Grab a drink and relax on a sunbaked deck, watching clouds come over the legendary Collegiate Peaks.
