This was our third visit and still 5 stars! Really appreciate the responsiveness and great maintenance. These chalets are perfectly located and are super relaxing to return to after a day of adventure. Thanks again, Jillian and Jason (and Junior).
Thank you Barnett family! We are so happy to have you come back again and enjoy the chalets. We take great pride in the property and strive to make sure everything is just right to provide a relaxing and comfortable stay. We appreciate your kind words and loyalty to the chalets. Junior appreciates all the attention! We look forward to having your family back again to create more wonderful memories together at the chalets.
Close to Monarch Mountain
Love this place for our annual Monarch ski trip!
We are so happy you had a great time skiing and staying at the chalets. The hot tub is wonderful after a day on the slopes. Thanks for being lovely guests and we look forward to having you back again.
Great experience staying in Mt. Columbia cabin. Huge cabin with room for two families. Very clean, memory foam beds with down comforters were fantastic, cabin stayed warm and huge open common areas. TV's in every room with two different dens for adults and kids. Lots of windows with great views. The grounds around the cabins were extremely well maintained. Very close to Salida and Monarch Ski area. Great price too!
We are so happy you had a great stay at the chalets and enjoyed the location and property grounds. Glad to hear the chalet was clean and comfortable. Thanks for spreading the good word!
The cabin was so clean
We had a wonderful stay. The cabin was so clean, inviting, and a wonderful memory from our vacation.
Thanks for sharing your great experience at the chalets, we are happy you had a comfortable experience and a lovely time with your friends and family.
We stayed at Mt. Columbia at Creekside Chalets after basically quarantining all year, and it could not have been the more perfect getaway! We wanted a vacation where we could staycation, and this is the perfect place whether you want to go out and explore, or just cookout and look at all the amazing views. You have mountainside to one side, aspen trees with a river to the other side and the cabins themselves are beautiful and spotless! The private hot-tub was the perfect place to relax under the beautiful stars. I want to return every season to see the different views! It was really just the most relaxing and beautiful vacation! The customer service was excellent as well! If you’re thinking of getting away, book Creekside Chalets now!
Thank you so much for this stellar review and we are so thrilled you enjoyed your much needed getaway! It has been a looooong year, so we are so happy this was the perfect mix for you to explore and enjoy the mountains and relax on the property grounds and chalet. All of the seasons have their own beauty at the chalets but do yourself a favor and enjoy a trip during the fall, the aspens are spectacular at the end of September. Thanks for being wonderful guests and we look forward to having you back again soon!
We have a wonderful stay at Mt. Columbia chalet at Creekside. We had nine people and we're comfortable. The porch and hot hub were very nice. The sound of the creek was soothing every night. It was a great location very clean and comfortable.
Thanks Aunt Tamale for sharing your pictures and your lovely review. We are so happy you had a comfortable and relaxing experience at the chalets. I love listening to the sound of the creek and with all the rain this summer is has been running swiftly and the property is so green! Thanks so much for staying at the chalets and for sharing your great experience. We appreciate you being lovely guests.
Thank you for accommodating us. We spent a wonderful weekend with the grandbaby, wander around, and son-in-law was close enough to a bike challenge to enjoy some freedom. Great cabin and the kitchen had everything I needed to feed the crowd. Creekside was the perfect solution for our family to gather.
We are so happy you enjoyed your time together at the chalets, it was really nice meeting your family. I am happy you were able to prepare delightful meals for the ones you love and got time together to relax. We hope to have you back again soon!
Plenty of room, clean, well stocked!
The perfect cabin for our annual ladies ski trip. We've stayed in many places in the area over the years and the Mt. Columbia cabin was the best! Plenty of room, clean, well stocked, comfortable beds and furniture and great location. We will be back!
We are so happy that your annual ladies' ski trip was a success! We are so glad you got to enjoy time together and relax at the chalets. Thanks for spreading the good word and we really appreciate you being such wonderful guests.
Great for skiing at Monarch
We stayed in the Mt Columbia Cabin and it was perfect for our family. There was plenty of space for 6 people (4 of which were noisy boys), the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had all the necessary pots, pans, dishes, and cutlery needed for making full meals, the hot tub was spectacular after a day of skiing, and the location was great for skiing at Monarch every day for 5 days! We will definitely be back!! Thanks!
Renee, thank you all for staying and being such pleasant guests. Glad you had a restful stay, were able to cook delicious meals and relax in the hot tub after a fantastic day on the slopes, sounds like a great vacation! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again!
Another memory maker vacation
This was our second stay here and we had our whole family with us. We stayed in Mt Columbia and it was perfect for our family. The two grandkids had a ball, our fur baby loves it there and the adults enjoyed all the aspects of the grounds especially playing corn hole. Five stars doesn't seem to be enough so I give it a 10 star rating. Thanks Jillian and Jason for another memory maker vacation. We will be back.
We are so thrilled to hear that it was a fabulous reunion at the chalets! We are so happy that you enjoyed the property grounds and new game area by the creek. Thanks for being such wonderful guests and we look forward to having you and your fur baby back for more good times together! :)
The hot tub was AWESOME!
The property was nice and roomy for 7 people. The kitchen was very well appointed with all forms of kitchenware. The hot tub was awesome. Would definitely consider returning if my family gets together again next year. Nice fenced yard for the pups, too!
We are so happy that the chalet was a good fit for your friends and family. We are happy you were comfortable and enjoyed the hot tub! Glad the fur babies enjoyed the yard and getaway. We look forward to having you back again! Thanks for being great guests.
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Mt. Columbia Chalet!
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Mt. Columbia Chalet! So spacious and all fully stocked with any and everything you would need (even a washer and dryer)! The beds were more comfortable than most hotel beds! The hot tub was so relaxing tucked in amongst Aspen trees with a fresh mountain creek running behind. Ample parking was available for our ATV’s and vehicles. We were also so happy we could bring our beloved dogs seeing they are pet friendly! We are truly looking forward to our next stay at this wonderful, peaceful getaway!
We are so happy that you all loved relaxing at the property, soaking in the hot tub and enjoying the sound of the creek. You had a beautiful fleet of ATV's, hope you had some wonderful adventures in the area. We are looking forward to being your home base again for more epic Colorado adventures.
very comfortable beds!!!
“great spot! super spacious! very comfortable beds!!! excellent hot tub! perfect location!!”
Thanks for being lovely guests. We hope you enjoyed your time skiing Monarch and relaxing together.
It was clean, well supplied and the hot tub was great.
We recently rented the Mt. Columbia Chalet for our family of 8's stay during a family reunion and loved it. It was clean, well supplied and the hot tub was great. The only negative was that it was located next to the road and there is a lot of traffic noise when we had the windows and doors open. But it wasn't a problem at night with everything closed up. We would definitely consider staying there in the future.
We are so happy that you enjoyed spending time with your family at the chalets. The hot tub is always a great vacation bonus! We would love for your family to come back again and enjoy the property!
Thanks for a great stay !!!
This is to tell you how much my family enjoyed our stay at Creekside this past week. As always, the rooms and cabin were clean. The facility is close enough for us to plan trips anywhere. We visited Denver this time and other places. Thanks for a great stay !!!
Thank you so much for letting us know how much your family enjoyed the chalets this past week. It was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for being such lovely guests. We hope you come back for more wonderful times together at Creekside!
Cabins are very roomy and clean
Beautiful area and the cabins are very roomy and clean. We will definitely be back!
We are happy that you enjoyed the property and the layout of the chalet. We look forward to being your home base for more great times and adventures.
Loved it ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Loved this place
Great! We are so happy you had a good time! Hope to see you again for more adventures and good times!
Nice location for cycling and hiking
4.5 rating.Nice location for cycling and hiking. Close to gravel roads, great climbs, and Salida. ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆Pluses: clean, well maintained, relatively secluded, but right on the highway. Hot Tub was great, nice gas fireplace, generally well-stocked kitchen with pots pans cookware, plates, etc. two showers worked well. Minuses: WiFi slow. Also, Usually in rentals, the kitchen has a few misc things like coffee creamer, sugar, cooking oil, spices, etc. not critical, but would have been nice to have some of that stuff. I realize that this needs to be balanced against inviting bugs. This place was clean with no bugs or anything else. Location was great for gravel bike riding. Great climbs (Monarch Pass), close to MTB trails in Salida, and close to St Elmo.
Thank you for sharing your experience and accurately reviewing the chalet and property. We would love to see some pictures from your rides, it looked liked you guys put in some miles around the valley! Thanks for being such great guests! Hope to be a part of more of your Colorado adventures.
Very Dog Friendly
Great place to stay in and would highly recommend. The house was clean and appealing. It’s very dog friendly which was a huge bonus. Only issue was very slow WiFi but we made it work but we also had 9 people so I’m sure that wasn’t helping.
We are happy all your friends and pup had a great time! The WiFi is a challenge in the mountains but glad it didn't slow you down too much! Glad it was a wonderful vacation!
Can't wait to stay again!
We really enjoyed our stay with you. The accommodations were great. Our party had a total of three cabins and everyone is already talking about staying with you again.
We enjoyed having your group stay at the property and thrilled you had a great time! Can't wait to have you back again and thanks for taking such wonderful care of our units. We appreciate your business and hope to see you soon!
Very nice accommodations. Fit our family perfectly. 7 adults and 2 children.
Very nice cabin. Fit our family very well. Everything was just what we needed. The hot tub was very nice combined with the night chill and a million stars overhead. Cabin accommodated 3 families. For the price of a nearby hotel room times three families, this was a bargain. You can't go wrong with Scanga Meats. The Hub Brewery was lots of fun. Oh, and Amicas Pizza was the best. We fished nearby streams and lakes and did very well, for early April. As the seasons change we'll be back.
We hope you come back and visit again in the summer or fall, the leaves are gorgeous at the property! Sounds like the chalet & scenery was a great fit for your families and you enjoyed a lot of the great restaurants and breweries in the area! We are so happy it was a lovely trip! Edit your Response
Love the place!
Great location, great space. We've stayed in a few different cabins, Mt Columbia is great for larger groups. Private hot tub at all the cabins and pet friendly. Beds are so comfy! The new owners seem great and is much easier to make reservations then before. Love this place anytime of year and it's beautiful in the fall.
We are happy you like the new beds and the ease of the new website. We loved having your group and look forward to having you back!
Mt. Columbia was Great!
The Mt. Columbia Chalet was great! We had 8 adults and all slept very comfortably. We could have easily fit two more. The house is conveniently split into two living areas, giving people space to spread out. The living areas and bedrooms were large and comfortable. The fenced in backyard was perfect for the dogs. And the front deck/table would be amazing for summer or a warm winter day. The hot tub was perfect after a long day on the slopes (Monarch is only 15 minutes away). The house is on the highway, but we weren't bothered by the noise. Jillian, our contact, was very responsive to our requests. She even let us check out late so we could ski Sunday & clean up after. (No one was checking in and we gladly paid a fee.) Overall, this was a great place and made for a great weekend!
