Local Info

Oh, Colorado, how we LOVE you! It is our favorite place to spend the summers and our favorite place to enjoy the winters.

Salida, Colorado

Black Bear Retreat is only 12 miles east of the charming town of Salida, Colorado. Our cozy town of Howard offers us the best mountain views and the best river proximity.

River Road Scenery

While our property does not border the Arkansas River, we are only a stone’s throw from its world-class rapids! So, come spend your nights with us, among the stars, and the days enjoying the thrills of the river.

And who can resist the serenity of a beautiful morning of fly fishing?
