About Us

We are very excited to be the new owners of this incredible property! We have been exploring the Arkansas Valley for a combined 35 years and finally made Salida our home in 2014. From the moment we walked on the property, it was love at first sight. The beautiful groves of aspen trees and the vibrant creek running through the resort seem to perfectly capture the best of the Arkansas Valley. The chalets have a unique layout that creates an ideal atmosphere for socializing, relaxing, and enjoying the dynamic mountain energy of the property.

We both said, “This is my kind of place, I don’t ever want to leave!” It’s like a postcard. Our shared vision for owning and operating a resort took root. We are committed to creating a resort that centers around the guest experience and allows people to relax, rejuvenate & enjoy this beautiful valley. We are both very passionate about the great outdoors and are skiing, mountain biking, and whitewater enthusiasts. It is a dream come true to own a property that allows us to share this remarkable place with others. We hope you come stay with us and enjoy the chalets with your family and friends!

If you love being in the mountains, having the opportunity to take a peaceful walk through the woods, and relaxing on the front porch with family or friends, we’re right for you. If you want something a little more unique, comfortable, and welcoming for your Colorado vacation than just a standard hotel room, then you’re likely to love a stay in one of our cabins.

You’re coming to the mountains – why not stay in the mountains and and truly experience them?

Many of our guests are repeat customers because no one else in the area has accommodations like we do. So give us a try and see why so many people love this little corner of Colorado.
