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

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

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!

Beautiful and Secluded Cabin

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Right outside BV, this cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway. Gorgeous views with everything you need. Steps from the river; it was a little cold so we didn't spend too much time outside but it was awesome to wake up to it each morning. The home is well appointed and we didn't want for anything. Siting in the hot tub under the stars in complete privacy was exactly what we were looking for!

We also spent a wonderful day at the Cottonwood Inn Natural Springs which was about 20 minutes away. We then enjoyed great food and (micro) brew options at the Eddyline Brewery & Restaurant and enjoyed a night cap of Whitewater whiskey at the Deerhammer Distillery (we enjoy adult beverages). BV has some fun in store for you if/when you decide to venture out of this little mountain oasis.

This was exactly what we were looking for and the owners were very prompt and helpful throughout the process. We loved our trip and hope to come back in the very near future!

Great Riverfront Getaway

This property is updated, clean and well cared for. The best part is the private drive and location on the Arkansas River! We took advantage of walking this driveway and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. It backs to BLM land, so there's much to explore - bring your hiking boots. We also enjoyed a short jaunt into Buena Vista, Salida & Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. I'd recommend this cabin for a nice quiet weekend getaway.

Me and my new wife had an amazing time at this location. The cabin was beautiful and being so close to the river made for a spectacular view of the mountains. We visited several places nearby to wonder town and hike through a few of the many parks for some good fun. I highly recommend for a retreat or vacation getaway.

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
To begin with, my husband and I have never even been there. So we can't write a review about our stay;however, we can write to say that we have been searching and searching for "this little slice of heaven". I KNOW now that we have found it in your cabin. We have been to Montana several times and absolutely fell in love with the Beartooth Mountains. But our son lives in California and we really want to be closer to him. We live in Tennessee right now, but are considering moving to Colorado.
So we would love to come and stay in your cabin and look for a new place to call home. We love the mountains and the privacy. So we would love to find a place like yours! We are not 100 % sure of the dates we would be coming, but it would probably be in June or July. I teach school and I have that time off. So hopefully, we can make definite plans soon. I look forward to talking to you soon and getting to stay in your absolutely perfect cabin that is situated on the perfect piece of heaven!
Thank you for your time,

Peaceful respite on the Arkansas River

  • 5 of 5

I had an absolutely lovely time at this romantic cabin which sits alone on the East side of the Narrows section of the Arkansas River. The home is very clean with all the amenities you need to make you feel at home, including nice personal touches throughout the home from candles, to gourmet coffee maker. Both the owner and the manager were very responsive to questions and helping out with my (last minute) trip. Although I cooked most of my own food, I also enjoyed dinner in nearby Buena Vista. Sitting in the jacuzzi at twilight was a beautiful and relaxing end to the day. Incredibly comfortable bed - probably the best sleep I have had in a long time! Perhaps the best thing about this cabin was the serenity and quiet of the solitude. I hiked for hours on the BLM land around the cabin and found beauty everywhere I looked. Staying here was good for my soul!
