About the neighbourhood
The Wet Mountain Valley is a hidden gem of Colorado. Recently identified as an International Dark Sky Community, the near town of Westcliffe/Silver Cliff has worked to preserve the incredible star-gazing qualities of the valley. The north end of the valley starts at the Arkansas River & Hwy 50, the south end is right at Walsenburg, Colorado.

The Wet Mountain Valley is a popular destination for those who know about it, and activities are diverse and appealing to all age ranges. Activities include, but are not limited to, photography, bird watching, hiking - including multiple 14ers, biking (road biking & mountain biking), fishing, hunting, snowmobiling & ATVing.

Our property provides close access to San Isabel National Forest, Arkansas River, Westcliffe / Silver cliff, Texas...

How to get there
From Canon City, head west on Hwy 50 until you come to the junction of Hwy 69 (approx. 25 miles). Turn right (south) onto Hwy 69 and travel 12 miles until you see a large HILLSIDE sign on your left. Turn into the property, and you will see the white post office building on your left. The grey stucco cottages are located further back on the property. A small gravel access ring road will allow you to drive up to each unit. There is one parking space beside the front door of each unit, and each unit is identified with the name of the cottage.
