Cardinals Nest is an amazing mountain getaway! On beautiful treed acreage, near national forest land with miles of trails. Located between Salida and Buena Vista, the house is a short drive to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs.  The views from both house and deck are unbelievable. This house is comfortable for one large family, or several smaller ones.

On the main level of this spacious home, there is an open concept living, dining and kitchen with a wall of windows out to the huge deck with a large sculptural outdoor fireplace. There are also two bedrooms (one with a king, the other with a queen) and a full bath.  A special bonus is a huge family bedroom with two king beds, a TV area with a pull out couch - and it has its own bathroom!  The upper level has a large private master suite with a king bed and master bath with a jetted tub.  Outside the door to the master is a lofted area that has a reading nook with another queen sofabed.  The lowest level has a large family room with bar, TV area and another queen sofabed - plus another bathroom.

Pets allowed on approval only.
