General overview

The Swallow Nest is a vacation rental in the historic district of Salida, CO. It offers 1,600+ square feet of freshly updated living space, a landscaped backyard with deck, patio, and gas grill, two second-floor decks with mountain views, and off-street parking for two cars. Wireless internet is available throughout the house.

The space

First floor: Our recently remodeled kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make a great meal and enjoy it in the adjacent dining room or on the patio table in the backyard during warmer months. In the living room, listen to music or stream your favorite movies on our smart TV (Netflix account provided) while sitting in comfort on our loveseat and sofa set. (The couch pulls out into a queen-sized bed and living room doors close to make a cozy sleeping space.) A conveniently located downstairs full bath has a corner shower. Second floor: Each of the three spacious upstairs bedrooms has a queen bed with a down duvet and plenty of pillows. A large recently restored bath has the original clawfoot tub—and a view of the Collegiate Peaks from the window! Outdoor living spaces: We have three outdoor seating areas. Sit on the covered front porch upstairs and enjoy your morning coffee or watch the children play in Alpine Park, directly across the street. Enjoy that Colorado sun and take in the view of “S” Mountain from our back upstairs deck. Or enjoy a barbecue dinner around the table in the patio in our private backyard. Sorry, we do not allow pets of any sort. No exceptions.

Member description
My husband, Kyle, and I have our primary home in Seattle, WA, and a family house (built by my grandfather) in Salida, CO. Most of our traveling has been to Europe, the American Southwest, New England, and our favorite American cities: New York, Washington, DC, and Chicago. But we are very game to explore and learn about new cities, states, countries, and cultures!
