The Cliffside home sits above the Chalk Creek Valley and just under the 800 feet tall Chalk Cliffs. The home is a Frank Lloyd Wright design which makes all the spaces functional and useful. There is no internet access, but several sites in Salida have free Wi-Fi.

Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort is just down the hill, you may drive up to the famous ghost town of St. Elmo or go hiking along the Colorado Trail. Salida and Buena Vista are 15-20 minutes away.

This residency is a bit isolated. It's too far to walk into town. It usualy works out that there is at least one car at the residency, and there will be plenty of opportunities to get groceries. There is a small art supply store in Salida, but it is best to bring what you need. This residency is ideally suited for artists who work outdoors or have minimal studio needs. However, we will find studio space to match artist needs.

Residents will be able to attend the Artposium in Denver, and will have transportation and housing for that event.
