Star Mesa is a delightful log cabin on a private pond with comfy furnishings, a great kitchen with large breakfast bar, and open living/dining areas. It is perfect for a group looking to enjoy the area's activities, or a couple seeking a romantic spot for 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

In spring and summer it is surrounded by the sounds of Cherry Creek flowing down from the
mountains. Skinny dip in the pond or 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 is three miles from the Arkansas River, and a 15-mile drive from Salida and all of its charming amenities, restaurants, galleries, hot springs pool, world-class boating and fishing. Monarch Ski Area is a 40-minute drive. Bring your bikes, boots, horse, skis, or some good books and a yoga mat.


NO SMOKING. Pets may be welcome subject to prior approval and a nightly fee.
