We arrived in Buena Vista in the evening, and made our through a town lit up by holiday lights to the South Main neighborhood, a beautiful and thoughtfully planned extension of Main Street. The Clocktower, a bright focal point of the neighborhood, is just a block from the Arkansas River and near-by trails; many restaurants and shops are also close by.
The apartment perches on the second floor, under the clock, with views to the west of the open land climbing into the mountain ranges (amazing sunsets!). The owners, John and Allison, have created a warm and welcoming home, with many hand-crafted and unique, thoughtful touches (e.g., the concrete counters are "homemade," and Allison designed the patterns for the black & white tile floors). An open floor plan (full kitchen, dining area and living room) creates a perfect space for hanging out, and the bedrooms, in the rear of the apartment and building, are quiet. Extremely comfortable beds, we slept quite well; and in the mornings took a short walk to the near-by Buena Vista Roastery for coffee.
We've visited BV previously, but this was our first stay at The Clocktower Flat. We felt totally spoiled staying here! Would've stayed longer if we could, and look forward to returning.
other features/comments: all new appliances; t.v., sound system; selection of movies, books, games; the property is extremely well cared for; enthusiastically recommended!
