We built this Santa Fe style home in 2010 with a design aimed at blending into the surrounding environment, and with energy efficiency in mind. It is a two-level 2200 square foot passive solar home with an open floor plan. The lower level opens into a great room, large kitchen, master suite and second bedroom. The upper level has the entertainment room, plus bed and bath in a loft-type setting. It opens onto a large deck which features a view up and down the Arkansas River Valley and the 14,000+ foot mountains of the Collegiate Peaks Range. Picture windows abound throughout the home. There is 180' of private Arkansas River frontage behind the house, neighbors are few and far between, and though only 3/4 mile from the activities of Main St. the setting in the Pinon/Juniper forest is tranquil and secluded. It is about 1/2 mile upriver of the Buena Vista Whitewater park. A hot tub set above the river in the forest makes for a splendid 'retreat within a retreat'!

We had an amazing time. This was the perfect getaway, where we were able to enjoy the beautiful views with great family and friends. We will be booking this place again. It is a great balance of getting away from it all yet, still being in close proximity of town.
Great time with family and friends
My wife and 10 month old stayed with 2 friends for a couple of nights. We had a blast. There was a winter storm and we were warm inside. The place is clean and comfortable and worked out well with our child. Highly recommend. The river access and hot tub were a huge bonus! Plus can't beat how close to town this location is and private.
Absolutely Loved It!!!
This home was absolutely beautiful! and just secluded enough but close to town for activities. Also the Colorado river was right in their backyard and the views were stunning!! The sounds of the water was so relaxing. Also loved the extra space and amenities of the house. Would definitely come back and stay longer next time as we didn’t want to leave!!
This place is a gem within Buena Vista. The house itself is clean and spacious with great views in all directions and a large deck on the second floor. The property has its own river front and there is a small play wave right there. I was able to kayak there and then also continue down the river to the play park. After kayaking, the hot tub out back was great to relax and warm up in. Overall, if you're thinking about visiting Buena Vista, I don't think you could find a nicer place.
Wonderful location on the river close to town. Excellent!
Great property great location. I would recommend having stand up fans in each of the rooms. It got quite hot and some air circulation would help a lot.
Great idea - it's been an unusually warm summer. We'll add some stand up fans for those occasions when it really does get heated up. Ordinarily, keeping the windows closed during the day keeps the house from getting too warm. Then in the evening, cooling breezes and open windows makes for a comfortable night. Not always, though - it's been remarkably calm lately, so not much breeze. Thanks for the feedback!
Great place, amazing views!
We had an amazing time during our stay. Being so close to the river and downtown Buena Vista was wonderful and very convenient. The river is so close you can hear the stream at night. I look forward to staying here again in the future.
Thanks! You guys were great guests - we appreciate the review and look forward to your next visit.
Buena Vista is an active, historical town in the heart of the highest of Colorado's peaks. Visit our Buena Vista town and Chamber of Commerce sites for details - much too much to list here!
