About Jeff lewis

I am a professional photographer and artist. I have studios in three different states and vacation rentals at those locations. My works are displayed and sold at several Galleries in California, Idaho and Colorado. You may see my work at several Galleries in Aspen. Disney Resorts commissioned me to produce several large Giclee works for their Paradise Pier Resort next to the original Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA. The new Sheraton Resort in Carlsbad, CA commissioned a work for their beautiful new ocean view lobby next door to LegoLand USA. I love shooting landscapes and BV has beautiful mountains, river, and the changing of the leaves!!! Nature at it's most majestic and beautiful............. My wife is a very talented and successful interior designer in Ca and has owned a brick and mortar design firm for years. She saw the potential in this property immediately due to her eye for seeing possibilities. We took on this project as a labor of love. It was a challenge that we were up for. Due to personal responsibilities we eventually made fewer trips to our safe little haven nestled on the river. Debbie persuaded me to open our doors to VRBO guests. We did so in 2008 and it has been so rewarding to meet new guests, hear their stories of great memories they made while staying at this special place..... We are solely the stewards of this beautiful piece of land.... We are pretty darn blessed!!!!

Jeff lewis purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jeff lewis chose Buena Vista

My wife, Debbie and I were on a motor home vacation when we happened upon Buena Vista. We asked a local realtor if there was ever anything for sale on the river and was told, 'hardly ever'. She did say, however there was an odd property on the river that she did not recommend. We asked to see it anyway and fell deeply in love with it. IT WAS A GEM AND WE KNEW IT!!!! Private and right on the river with no neighbors on top of us!!! It had all kinds of old dilapidated small buildings on the 7 acres and a rough trail over government land along the river to get to it. We were lucky to have our offer accepted over two others that day! We obtained a Right-Of-Way from the government, improved the road and eventually replaced the cabin on the waters edge with a new cabin. We've removed the old buildings and have cut a large pad to build our dream house someday. Every local who grew up in the area that has visited our property admits they never knew it existed and that it is one of the most impressive and special finds in Central Colorado. It's truly my most favorite place on earth! And our past guests agree. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO READ OUR GUEST COMMENTS AND VIEW OUR OTHER PROPERTIES

What makes this cabin unique

Peace and quiet, except for the churning sounds of rushing river water and the occasional raft or kayak passing by. The fishing is the best for rainbow and brown trout. We are completely surrounded by almost limitless BLM lands that are yours to explore. There is hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, swimming, off road vehicle trails and more 14,000 foot mountains to climb than in any other location in North America! You will not find a better or closer location to the Arkansas River anywhere along its length!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much to the Lewis' for the use of their cabin last week! We had an amazing time. The cabin is beautiful, comfortable, and clean. We enjoyed having dinner on the deck, cool nights in the hot tub, and sleeping to the sound of the river. Our children loved exploring the area and playing by the river. The cabin was perfect size for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. We loved how secluded and quiet it was with no neighbors nearby, yet only a couple minute drive to get to town. It's a beautiful place to stay and beautiful area of colorado.

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing find! We loved every part of our stay. The river being literally at your feet was wonderful. We slept with the windows open, sat on the balcony, enjoyed the hot tub, fished and just enjoyed being away from it all. The house is clean and very well stocked. You can tell the owners take much pride in their home. We will definitely be repeat customers!

It was wonderful be so close to the river and sleep with the sound of it below.
The cabin was well stocked and decorated, quiet and very clean. Its just a few miles to town for shopping, hot springs or sight seeing.

Perfect retreat for a small family

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this lovely cabin and can't wait to come back. Our 2-year old stayed in the second bedroom on a floor mattress and loved it, she thought she was camping. She demanded daily trips to the hot-tub and loved watching the rafters float by. The cabin was clean and in great shape when we arrived. It is rare to find a cabin with a great location and with all modern amenities. The sound of the river is what we miss most since leaving, it is so relaxing. This is the perfect location very close to town, but you still feel secluded. Our only wish was for WiFi since we had to check in on some work issues - but hey your on vacation so good to check out too! You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Owner's Response: We are always so pleased to hear our guests wonderful comments. The WiFi is provided by a cell phone amplifier for 3G data service. It pumps up the signal from .5 watts to a full 3 watts. It is not the fastest data through your cell provider, however it works fine for most of our guests.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this property and I would very highly recommend it to anyone seeking some "wind down" time. It is secluded and private yet just moments away from BV and more wine. The river was high and swift and not fishable (early June). It would be tough to fly fish at most times I think, however there are creeks in the area that are accessible to fisherman. The hiking is great. Lot's to explore including an abandoned railroad grade. We had a great time just loafing/reading on the deck in fantastic surroundings. Thanks.

Beautiful Cabin

My husband, toddler and I had a great weekend getaway at this cabin. It was very comfortable, and so relaxing with the hum or the river heard from every room. I would definitely recommend this property for a mountain getaway in Buena Vista!
