About Patty

I moved to Chaffee County, Colorado in 1985 to work and play in the mountains. I worked at Monarch Ski Area as the Director of Snowcat Tours. I also started and owned a rafting photography business, Sunshine Studio, on the Arkansas River. The area has endless opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Patty purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty chose Buena Vista

My wife and I always wanted a property near Mt. Princeton with geothermal hot water. We were blessed with this house which was located on Chalk Creek and had a geothermal spring that produces geothermal water at six gallons per minute. That's over 300 gallons an hour and over 4000 gallons a day of mineral enriched hot therapeutic soaking water.

What makes this house unique

Soaking in hot water wataching the cosmos. Other activities are endless, such as hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, rafting, rock hounding, horse back riding, mountaineering, and on and on and on. All those who wander are not always lost.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at the beautiful mountain cabin. Amazing views, wildlife and activities kept us busy. There are no words to explain the pool at night under the stars. We hope to visit again, and make this our getaway for many years to come.

Creek Side is the Best of the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We have lived in this part of the country for 20 years and discovered this valley as a favorite getaway destination. Because we've been coming here for to this area for so long, we've had a chance to stay at several vacation rentals the canyon. Creekside is our favorite by far, for so many reasons.

1. Private Hot Springs. This is completely natural soak with NO Chemicals.

2. Hidden away location. Many of the vacation rentals in the area are located on the main road but Creek Side is on a backroad. While we were there, the ONLY noise we heard was birds chirping in the daytime and a resident owl hooting at night.

3. Protected from the wind. The house itself is nestled in a little gulch overlooking the creek, and the hot pool is several yards further down at creekside. This was great for us since our stay was during Christmas when the temps were down in the single digits, snow was on the ground and the winds were sometimes high. Even so, we were able to comfortably soak day and night. A hot soak under the stars in the dead of winter is VERY romantic!

4. Gorgeous house. Creek Side is a cut above the average vacation rental. It has the feel of an old-fashioned ski lodge with the traditional Swiss style A frame. The photos do not do it justice because the house is larger than it seems from the pictures and there are countless little touches that give the place a cozy atmosphere that made me feel right at home. We especially loved the down bedding and hot water heat that made the house so comfy.

5. Arkansas River Valley activities. GREAT TOURIST DESTINATION with things to do for every season - from skiing in the winter to white water rafting in the summer to antiquing and dining out.

6. Pets Welcome. We don't enjoy a stay in a place that disallows pets. Even so, this place is CLEAN! I have stayed at pet friendly accommodations that look and feel like animals have been there. Not so at Creekside. The cabin, grounds, and pool are scrupulously clean and sanitary.

7. Owner Managed. This is a labor of love and you don't know the value of an owner managed rental until something goes wrong. One of our dogs got loose on Christmas Day and we were heartbroken. He bolted into the forest and we didn't know where to start looking. The property owner, left his family and spent Christmas evening and night helping us search. If not for that help, we might never have found our little dog who was lost in a national forest.

Highly recommended!

better than i had hoped for

  • of 5

John and Patty are both very friendly but very slow to respond. It took months of back and forth emails and phone calls to get my reservation, and even then I was overcharged and it took another month to fix that. I have never put nearly so much effort into making a reservation before but it was worth the effort in the end. The cabin was very comfortable, clean, and spacious and the hot spring was heavenly. I will be back for sure, and recommending to friends and family. I do hesitate to write this favorable review only out of fear that if people knew how great this place was it will be booked solid when I want to come back.

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place for my family of 5 including 3 teens. I was worried about lack of WiFI and TV but kids adjusted well and played games and watch movies as a family at night great family time. The location was central for all activities- hiking, rafting ATVs( go to St Elmos for this) and fishing, while also being off the main road to feel like off in the woods. Loved being by and listening to the creek and soaking the thermal hot tub after a busy day. The house had plenty of room and was very clean and the beds very soft and comfortable-the only problem was the oven- burns things easily had to lower temp and check often- but the grill was a nice extra. Watching birds from the deck and playing horseshoes was nice and my youngest liked the tree fort and swing.Would definitely stay here if went back to the area and recommend to others.

Very relax

The cabin is very private, we soaked in the hot spring all day. We couldn't ask for more. The cabin was like our house-it had everything we needed. We will come back again! Thank you Patty and John, for sharing your cabin.
