The best people!

What a great stay. Boy did we love getting to know our hosts and what a great spot to explore Salida. The hosts were super gracious and fun to chat with over a beer. Hope we meet again!

Wonderful Hosts

This was our first BW experience, and we couldn't be happier... Except that we didn't have the opportunity to meet our hosts, as they were out enjoying their own RV. Our communications we're all by email, but we could tell that we'd like to meet these folks some day... Maybe on our next trip through the area.

We had a great time

We really did have a great time with the host. We had plenty of time to sit on the patio and chat. And a pleasant meal downtown sitting outside.

Great views, cool nights, quiet neighborhood.

We hope the hosts come to see us on one of their winter trips.

Amazing experience

T & D are amazing hosts. The location is only 11 minutes to downtown Salida and the views are amazing. I was able to hook up to water with 75 feet of hose and electric a bit closer. They have an amazing house and are great people to hang out with. D is a master brewer and if you have an opportunity to try his creations, you will be amazed at the quality. I now have friends in Salida and I’m hoping they visit me in the winter.

Very hospitable hosts near cute town of Salida

These folks were so friendly and accommodating! We had no trouble leveling our small 25 foot camper. Great to have Wi-Fi, electricity, and water. Very kind folks, and be sure to try some of the home brewed beer!

Wonderful place to stay. Hosts are welcoming, warm and friendly. Salida is a fun town with beautiful mountain views, fun downtown and exciting adventures on the Arkansas River. The instructions from the host are perfect and we have new friends to share adventures with.

Perfect hosts, fantastic people

And - incredible mountain views.
So happy we got to visit these beautiful, generous folk. Shared an excellent dinner, had several truly exceptional home brewed beers, and got much needed help and advice regarding our van. Hope we get to pass this way again :)

Warm & Welcoming

Perfectly hospitable hosts! Thanks for the warm welcome and cold beer! We parked our VW campervan in the driveway and were thankful for a quiet, safe spot that had water and electric hookup. Convenient location for exploring Salida and Buena Vista and everything in between.

Lovely people in a beautiful location!

I had a great time here, both at work and play. It is a quite, peaceful and very meditative place with beautiful views and easy access to outdoor activities. Hosts are kind, compassionate, and really fun people to be around! They were so kind to my two kitties, who miss all the extra attention 😹

Our hosts (piutedrive) were friendly and delightful to be arround. They were generous with their time and our use of their property. We enjoyed sharing life stories.
It was a also a convenient location to Salida & Buena Vista for outdoor activities. We hope to visit them again.

A purely treasured stay!

This has definitely been a highlight of my travels as Doug and Trish are two of the warmest and nicest people you’ll ever meet. So many great conversations over Doug’s master brewed beer selections. Their home provides easy access to historical downtown Salida, a true gem in Colorado. I will treasure the memories of this host experience for years to come!

Colorado High Desert Heaven!

There’s no place like home—especially when this dynamic duo rolls out their wonderful welcome mat. We were completely blown away by the beauty of their home and warmth of their hearts. The property is surrounded by stunning mountains flocked by the homeowner’s lush colorful gardens. Their kindness, generosity, and great senses of humor—coupled with the big sky sunsets and starry night magic surrounding their home brought a much-needed, peaceful and centering “sense of place” and levity to our travels. We couldn’t recommend them more—and hope to see them again soon (and not just because their homebrew is hands-down the best beer in the States!)

Generous Hospitality!

We loved our time at Arkansas River Valley!! What gorgeous views and even more beautiful hosts :) We were welcomed like family and told to make ourselves at home. We were also given great information about our next location which we were able to use! Amazing hosts and beautiful people. Thank you so very much!!

Wonderful!

I cannot recommend staying with Trish and Doug enough! This was our first boondocking experience and I imagine it has set a pretty high bar. We felt so very welcomed and wanted- my personality always worries about imposing on others, but I never felt that way at all here. They introduced us to neighbors and friends and shared insights about the community. It was more than I could have imagined. In particular, I wasn't sure how people might feel about hosting a family with active kids, but our kids felt so welcome that my ten-year-old asked me, "Can't we just stay longer because it's so nice here." We feel like we've made new friends and hope to cross paths again. Also-- Salida is a super fun community with great biking trails, parks, lakes, etc. This location has excellent views of the peaks. We have a large rig and tow vehicle and fit well.

Lovely place, kind hosts!

These hosts accepted us at the last minute when we didn’t hear back from other hosts.
Lovely spot with view on hills. Got a chance to enjoy the sunset on their patio and enjoyed a lovely chat over coffee in the morning. The bread was delicious too!
Thank you for the warm welcome :-)

Very nice hosts in beautiful landscape

The hosts have been super welcoming hosts, even hosting us while they were gone for the night for a friend's birthday party. They showed us around their property and we had a really nice if short chat before they left. The view on the surrounding mountains is stunning! Can definitely recommend their place.

Nice couple & Nice view

We enjoyed staying with Arkansas River Valley! They were very welcoming and helped us get settled in. They are very close to the town of Salida and we enjoyed
a hike and walking thru the town. There are many shops and restaurants too.
We felt like we have known this couple for a long time! Very kind and gracious. We hope to stay in touch and stay with them again.😎

Extremely welcoming hosts!

Trish and Doug were excellent hosts! It was fun getting to know them and a few of their friends.

Their location is very close to downtown Salida, about a 7 minute drive. You could also bike there since it’s relatively flat. We had a great time and loved the area. Highly recommended!
