7/22/11 Excellent vacation in lovely Colorado!  This house was the perfect location - quiet, peaceful, able to accommodate a wonderful family reunion!  The back deck is amazing - absolutely gorgeous views all day long, wonderful meals out there.  The table under the trees is very special as well - great place for dining and relaxing!  The wind through the cedars leads to unbelieveable inner peace.  You have a wonderful home - cozy, inviting, open and warm - thank you for sharing it with us! Washington State, Colorado, Minnisota 

8/8/11 Wow!  Star Mesa fare exceeded our expectations and we have falledn deeply in love with "the crown jewel of Howard"!  From a parents perspective it was the perfect place to return to each day after enjoying all the area has to offer.  The back deck looking onto the gorgeous meadow, pond and mountains beyond was a feast for our eyes.  The home itself is beautifully decorated, open and wonderful for our group of 5 and a very happy dog.  Everyone was comfortable and we all agree, we love it here!  Barton Family from Colorado

7/17/11 We had the best time here.  We went canoeing and kayaking on the pond - it was great.  All of us hope we come back here.   Thanks for sharing the beautiful house! Garden City, KS

Loved our stay at Star Mesa! Waking up to the mountain views was such a thrill! Enjoyed walking the grounds and the peaceful sounds of nature. The stars at night were incredible! It was the perfect end to our Colorado vacation! Parkville, MO

"Listen to the quiet!"  That was what we said when we first arrived at Star Mesa. It was the perfect escape from our everyday world and all the stress it brings. Thank you for offering this place for such a relaxing vacation. We plan on returning. Hicksville, OH

8/12/12 Star Mesa is a gem.  Waking up to sunrise over the mountains, seeing deer in our front yard and the peaceful nights are my idea of a relaxing vacation. We loved playing in the pond and canoeing in the morning is very romantic. Star Mesa's a great base for our 4-wheeling and rafting adventures.  We hope to come back! Blair, NE

Star Mesa exceeded our expectations! This romantic cabin was perfect for our anniversary trip, from the secluded and quiet mornings on the deck to the adventures in Salida and points of interest beyond. We enjoyed the mountain scenery and comfortable temperatures for inspired painting sessions off the deck... Would tell ANYONE that this cabin is just ideal. Ada, OK

We arrived late Friday evening and woke to a magnificent view of the valley and mountains... our golden doodle may have had the best time of all. She could barely keep herself inside, and with the fenced yard this place was heaven to her! We can't wait to return, hopefully to experience a different season. This is such a magical place.

Serene, beautiful, comfortable describes Star Mesa
Reviewed by Rich and Mary Stephens on 5/24/2012
We found the cabin to be exactly as promoted. It was quite easy to find, everything was clean and comfortable. A good supply of firewood was cut and stacked for our use. We spent a good share of our time at the cabin just enjoying the view, the quiet and the deer and turkeys. The wildlife is what I liked best. Not seeing a bear is what I liked least.
Peaceful, quiet secluded location. Awesome.
Reviewed by dakotah smith on 3/7/2012
This getaway was just what I needed. Didn't see another soul, perfect. Quiet and off the beaten path. Great. Our dog loved the fenced yard. I am not sure who loved this vacation spot more? Cozy and warm when the wood stove really got going. Everything worked great. Would recommend for summer or winter get away. Roads were fine even in January.

Reviewed by Marrin and Bill Sampson on 3/7/2012
My husband and I have finally found the perfect cabin get-away for us and our two dogs. After a grueling three and a half months of doing non-stop taxes my husband needs much needed r&r; to get away from the phones, computer and people in general. He sleeps a lot!!! But when he is not sleeping he can enjoy watching old movies that we bring, reading, and walking the 5 acre meadows, playing with the dogs in the pond and just generally doing nothing in particular. I sit out on the covered deck and dabble in my watercolors and take photos of passing wildlife. This property is private and secluded yet near enough to Salida and its amenities. There is a small general store in Howard if we need a quick trip to the store. Privacy is our number one priority in a rental cabin. This has both the privacy and the comfort for the perfect home away from home. This June will be our third stay at Star Mesa! Marrin and Bill Sampson
