We live on Highway 50 near Monarch Pass and Salida, CO., elevation 8,300 feet. We have a large parking area with electricity, if you like. In nice weather, I have a lovely courtyard with porch for visiting and a nearby creek with trickling or rushing water, depending on the time of year. We just finished a lovely creekside patio for morning or afternoon visiting.

Suggested Local Attractions

We are a few miles from Salida, a small artist town, with many galleries, great resale shops, and many restaurants; some on the Arkansas River.

Hiking in the nearby national forests, bicycling world-class mountain trails and rafting and fishing on the Arkansas River are all available. And don't forget sitting by the creek in the shade at the creekside patio, or on the porch in the courtyard, or walking the shaded trail beside the creek.

Fantastic Hosts!

We enjoyed our time with our hosts and we are very grateful for their hospitality. We appreciated their local knowledge of the area and our future travel destinations. There was a great little hiking trail by the river that my daughter and dog loved! A++ Thanks again!

Great first stay

This was the first boondocking experience on our inaugural full time RV trip. Mike and Pat were very welcoming, invited us on the patio for a drink while we got to know each other. They respected our space/privacy when we wanted it. Highly recommend staying here.

A slice of paradise!

Staying at the Cabin on the Creek was truly a great experience. This was our first Boondocker stay. The location was ideal & we loved hearing the creek while there. What a beautiful and relaxing location. Mike & Pat were amazing hosts! We loved the conversation and hearing about their travel experiences. What a special weekend we had staying on their property.

Lovely Spot, Lovely Hosts

The Cabin on the Creek is a beautiful spot to stop for a little serenity. I fell asleep to the quiet sounds of the creek each night. Mike and Pat were the consummate hosts, with delightful generosity.

Excellent location, Fabulous hosts

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Cabin on the Creek" Our hosts were gracious and informative. Mike gave us lots of wonderful traveling tips. Salida, just down the road, was a charming little city and well worth exploring for a couple of hours. The highlight of the evening was enjoying Mike and Pat's seating area right next to the creek. Nothing like the sound of water flowing over rocks for a relaxing evening!

Lovable hosts near the river

We requested one night stay and were welcomed to arrive earlier, per our request, and to extend our stay from 1 to 3 nights.

Location is so nice, in the nature near a river just off the main road.

Pat and Mike are such a nice and welcoming couple. We enjoyed speaking with them at length about many subjects.

They were helpfull with good advice about Whitewater Rafting, RV maintanance and even about Alaska.

Pat's homemade cookies are ausom.

Hope to meet them again at our home land or visit them again.
Highly recommended!

Amazing and gracious Hosts -- With a roaring brook

We too, were a little anxious when we saw the dirt road and bridge, but don't be alarmed, there is plenty of room on the other side to turn around and park.

Pat and Mike are WONDERFUL hosts. They welcomed us even though they had a dinner party that night and workers coming to finish their patio in the morning. With all that going on, they still made us feel welcome.

There is a RUSHING RIVER right next to their property and it made for a great sound barrier to Hwy 50, just a 100' away. The traffic never bothered us with the sounds of the brook.

We will be back to see Pat and Mike and to hear more about their adventures and share their grounds with us.

These Hosts are more than we expected

On first glance down their driveway we weren't sure this was a place that we wanted to take our 40 foot motorhome with a toad. Dawn said "Go for it" so we did. Down to the bridge, unhooked the toad and we pulled in and parked where they recommended. There was plenty of room. What a beautiful place to boondock. Pat and Mike were so friendly and we loved talking to them about their travels over morning coffee and happy hour. Thanks Pat and Mike for a wonderful two days.

Friendly and Helpful

We loved our time staying with Mike and Pat. They are wonderful to talk to and their land is beautiful. Mike is a really handy guy and went way out of his way to help us with a problem we were having on our RV. We hope to see them again one day down the road.

Great stop.

We echo what the Breshears wrote. Perfect hosts, beautiful property, fun to talk travel with these guys, what's not to like. This was our first use of BDs Welcome and now we are big fans. We stayed overnight and had a long drive the next day and so couldn't stay as long as we would have liked. Other than that we couldn't have been happier.

Wonderful Hosts and Beautiful Location.

Mike and Pat are wonderful hosts. Their property is very beautiful and private.
Pat shared travel experiences and gave us great tips on the location.
We especially enjoyed the trail up the canyon and the stream and beaver ponds.
We were offered electric and water. Morning coffee on the porch was an extra special touch.
This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay, and what a great way to meet new friends.
Our place is available to Mike and Pat to stay any time.
Mike and Pat receive our highest recommendation.
Thanks again.
