Description of the Salida vacation cabin rental
Star Mesa is a delightful cabin/log home with comfy, tasteful furnishings, a great kitchen with large breakfast/entertainment bar, and open living/dining areas. It is great for family fun or peace and quiet. The mountain views are vast and amazing. Deer, elk, and turkeys frequent the neighborhood. You will love the large deck and the porch swing view of the peaks.

The five-acre property looks and feels like a thousand as you look from the deck across the pond at the expanse of Big Horn Sheep canyon and mountains to the north, and the Sangre De Cristo mountains to the south. In spring and summer it is green and surrounded by the sounds of Cherry Creek flowing down from the mountains. Sunbathe in privacy on the deck. Fall is a golden wonderland. In winter light a fire and burrow in or head for the hills to ski. Star Mesa offers two bedrooms,each with a queen size bed and a queen sofa bed in the sunroom for additional sleepers.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

8/8/11 Wow! Star Mesa fare exceeded our expectations and we have fallen deeply in love with "the crown jewel of Howard"! From a parents perspective it was the perfect place to return to each day after enjoying all the area has to offer. The back deck looking onto the gorgeous meadow, pond and mountains beyond was a feast for our eyes. The home itself is beautifully decorated, open and wonderful for our group of 5 and a very happy dog. Everyone was comfortable and we all agree, we love it here! Barton Family from Colorado

8/12/11 Star Mesa is a gem. Waking up to sunrise over the mountains, seeing deer in our front yard and the peaceful nights are my idea of a relaxing vacation. We loved playing in the pond and canoeing in the morning is very romantic.$0 Star Mesa's a great base for our 4-wheeling and rafting adventures. We hope to come back! Blair, NE

7/22/11 Excellent vacation in lovely Colorado! This house was the perfect location - quiet, peaceful, able to accommodate a wonderful family reunion! The back deck is amazing - absolutely gorgeous views all day long, wonderful meals out there. The table under the trees is very special as well - great place for dining and relaxing! The wind through the cedars leads to unbelieveable inner peace. You have a wonderful home - cozy, inviting, open and warm - thank you for sharing it with us! Washington State, Colorado, Minnisota

Star Mesa is very popular and has several repeat visitors. The guest book entries consistently say that Star Mesa is their favorite vacation rental ever. Guests love watching the wildlife and the peaceful pond and mountain views. You'll love it too!

    Hi, I'm Lawton and I'm happy you have discovered Star Mesa! I lived here at the cabin for 5 years before moving into the town of Salida - which is a charming and friendly "village" about 15 miles away. My husband and I both have offices in the historic downtown and ride our bikes or walk to work....
