My husband and I live on the Tomcat Ranch with our three children, 3 dogs, and more cats than we can count! We agree that it's been a beautiful place to raise a family and love the connection we feel to the mountains and the wildlife. We love watching the hummingbirds swarm the feeder in the summer. The kids have grown up fishing in the lakes. We've hiked all over the property and into the mountains. We've watched herds of elk roam the ranch in the winter, with their calves. We've admired the beauty of the mountains -- from the snow-covered peaks of winter to the wildflower-filled valleys of summer. This is a beautiful spot!
Owner purchased this House in 1996
Why Owner chose Buena Vista
In 1995, we visited this part of Colorado on a vacation and fell in love with the beauty of the area and the friendly people who live here. We bought a home and moved here the following year.
What makes this House unique
We love to go out for a hike around the ranch in the evening. The kids have used this as an opportunity to look for wildlife. In the summer, we'll pick wild raspberries or maybe the kids will spend some time fishing in the lakes. We've also done many, many hikes into the National Forest and up Mt. Harvard and Mt. Columbia. It's wonderful to be able to head out our back gate and be right in the National Forest.

View from the top
Mike met us as we arrived. Flash flooding had occurred the night before, so he had worked all day to smooth the road. The view from the home was wonderful. We saw chipmunks, Stellar Jays ...toured the property. Very interesting history! You wont be disappointed!
Terrific property and hospitality
Great house, great property, centrally located in the heart of the Rockies. Can’t wait to come back.
High country vacation
This is a great property for a mountain getaway. Mike and Holly are wonderful and welcoming hosts, helpful in all ways. They open up thier ranch to their guests to explore and enjoy. The 5 lakes are full of beautiful brook trout that aren’t too difficult to fool with foam hoppers or Chubby Chernobyl flies. Given the rivers were running too high from the snowpack runoff during our stay, I was able to salvage some quality fly fishing in the lakes.
A great escape from the city
Absolutely loved the house and the property and Mike and Holly and Charger were the lovely hosts....So many paths and trails to wander around on, you never need to leave!
Great location, great communications with property owner. Owners stopped by to make sure we had everything. We were doing Ride the Rockies so we did not have an outdoor fire but we did enjoy the views!
Fantastic guest house on private ranch! The view is great, the sense of space and isolation is really nice. You can run around on a wonderful big ranch.
