Our Part of Colorado

If you've never been to our little part of Colorado, you're definitely missing out. Located well south of Denver, Howard, Colorado is a relaxing, peaceful community (pop. around 700), with easy access to the Arkansas River, the Monarch Mountain Ski area, and the San Isabel National Forest. Here, you can kick back and enjoy our beautiful surrounds, well away from big-city crowds and traffic.

Just up the road is Salida, Colorado (pop. around 6,000). Salida is an outdoor adventurer's paradise. Nestled in the Sawatch Range, it is also close to and right on the Arkansas River and near Monarch Mountain. You can try your hand at whitewater rafting in Brown's Canyon, which provides a lot of excitement and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Salida is also a mecca for mountain bikers of all ages and skill levels. One trail to try out is the Monarch Crest, an 11-mile long bike trail that reaches an elevation of almost 12,000 feet.

Like you might expect, hiking is also popular around our area. You can choose from numerous trails, from the relatively easy Double Rainbow Trail, to the extremely demanding hike to Mount Yale.

My family and I had so much fun on our visit to Colorado! Our visit at Black Bear exceeded our expectations by far. Firstly Pam is an amazing owner and made sure our entire stay was comfortable and gave us ideas of places to take our kids to have fun. The rooms are so cute and had everything we needed. It is minutes from town and there are little general stores and restaurants close by. We absolutely love the sitting areas to enjoy the peaceful environment found myself just staring at the beautiful mountains and tranquility. We will absolutely be back again and only stay here. Our kids didn't want to leave!
