Pinon Vacation Rental Customer Testimonials

Here are some comments from vacationers who have been guests with Pinon Vacation Rentals:

“I’ve stayed at dozens of rental cabins, and I can say without hesitation that your vacation home is at the very top of my list. Checking the availability and emailing you to request a reservation was simple. A one-step online booking would be slightly more convenient, however, the personal follow-up by you (via email/phone) was a nice touch. For me, a big benefit of going to (your private vacation home) is being able to completely escape, so I really appreciated how we were able to complete all transactions before arrival and therefore had complete privacy while at the cabin.”

“I really hesitate to let the cat out of the bag on something I was trying to keep secret for myself, but I guess that would not be fair to the owner, Lawton Eddy. We rented through Lawton for about three nights late in the Fall and were thrilled. The ease of reservation, personal attention by Lawton, cleanliness and quality were unsurpassed. We were a short drive from Salida, hidden on about five wooded and pastured acres with mountain views from the good Lord. We could reach the Great Sand Dunes, Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, Monarch Ski Area, the Arkansas River, the Colorado Trail, Historic Salida and more with short drives. The home was wonderfully decorated and supplied. The stars at night were intense. The family gourmet dinners were a snap in the modern kitchen. Family board games were cozy with candles and the glowing wood stove nearby. Early mornings were either spent oversleeping in the comforter covered quality beds, or by sipping coffee on the porch watching the deer. We paddled a canoe on the private pond and even saw a bobcat! All this for less money than staying at the Best Western in a resort town. I suggest you book some time with Lawton soon before the area is found out by others and becomes too hard to get when you want it. Well, I guess I let the cat out of the bag at least the bobcat!”

“We loved our vacation. The house itself was very warm and inviting and the wood-burning stove was a bonus. We were able to simply relax, cook, read and enjoy the views of the Arkansas Valley as well as the majestic Twin Sisters peaks from the front of the house! We spent one afternoon just browsing and shopping in Salida – before returning to our getaway away from it all. The reservation process was very easy. We certainly appreciated that you took credit cards as payment and that communication through e-mail was always quick and responsive to our questions.
We’ll be back for sure!”

“The reservation process is good as I was able to speak to a real person and discuss details which you can’t do as well over the internet. I make on line reservation for hotels all the time, but when I rent a private vacation home I prefer to speak to a person about it. I found the property very clean according to our expectations. We had a great time, my son loved it and it was worth the 17 hour drive from Monterrey, MEXICO. We’ll be back!”

“We had a great time in (our vacation rental home). It truly was winter wonder land, as we had so much snow during our week of relaxing and snow skiing. The reservations we made were easy and the accommodations were excellent. Your attention to the guest were great as you were in contact and available as needed. (The property) is a very warm and comfortable home in a beautiful location. I wish you well in the vacation rental business. I only wish I had a few homes to list with you!”
