ELEGANT CLOCKTOWER FLAT, STEPS FROM RIVER PARK IN HIP DOWNTOWN

Buena Vista Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-5)

Located right downtown in the acclaimed South Main neighborhood, the Clocktower Flat is a charming and well- appointed accommodation with immediate walking access to parks, river trails and downtown amenities like Eddyline Brewpub, 2 blocks away. This second story flat has been thoughtfully prepared, featuring an open floorplan which incorporates living, dining and kitchen areas into one space, perfect for family meals and socializing. A balcony opening from the great room overlooks South Main and the distinctive cobblestone Swift Street. Sleeps up to 5 on two queen beds and a twin futon. One bedroom contains a queen and the twin, the other bedroom has just the queen.

Everything's at your fingertips from a stroll by the river to singletrack mountain biking, watching kayakers in the whitewater park or booking your own rafting trip, cycling a mountain pass or tossing a frisbee in one of the grassy parks down the street... all without driving.

About the Owners: We are entrepreneurs who have lived in Buena Vista for over 12 years. We have had a connection with Buena Vista and the Upper Arkansas River Valley our entire lives. We enjoy the beauty and unspoiled character of the natural surroundings and love the slow-paced lifestyle and close community. We enjoy the horseback riding, kayaking, trail running, hiking, camping, and skiing that is readily available from Buena Vista.

The ClockTower Flat is located in the heart of the South Main neighborhood in Buena Vista. We bought into the idea of South Main from its inception. Based on the principles of New Urbanism, we appreciated the thoughtful design and layout of the community, and the fact that it broke most of the boundaries of what typical code deems 'normal' in this day and age. The streets are designed to be outdoor rooms, framing in amazing views, considering ratios of building heights to street widths, and the homes are designed so that you get to know your neighbors.

Basically, it just feels good to be here. It feels right walking down the street to the brew pub. It feels right looking out across the valley to the 14,000 foot Collegiate Peaks. Midland Mountain's trails right outside the back door beckon you to take a hike, run or quick mountain bike outing. The river calls from 100 yards away, inviting you to bring your kayak or raft down to the banks. We love the new bouldering parks that feel like a modern day Stonehenge, with rock climbers working on their routes to the tops. We love the fact that we can park our car for weeks on end and either walk or ride our bikes to town. We're glad that there is only one stoplight in town and that heavy traffic means waiting for a minute to exit the grocery store parking lot.

2 minute walk to the Arkansas River where you can fly fish, kayak, and whitewater raft.

30 second walk to the bouldering park and art gallery.

1 minute walk to the Buena Vista River Park trails.

2 minute walk to the nearby brew pub.

5 minute walk to the Barbara Whipple Trial and Fourmile - 100,000 acres of public open space.

7 minute walk to the historic Buena Vista Main Street.

Amazing! Relaxing and enjoyable stay in South Main neighborhood of BV

  • 5 of 5
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!

winter refuge

  • 5 of 5
My first visit to Clocktower flat was on a cold snowy night in December and I was grateful for the warmth and beauty of this flat. Things I enjoyed: Stretching out in living room with a hot cup of tea. Sinking into the comfy bed and comforter for a very restful night. Waking to a sun-filled kitchen/living room and a cup of Buena Vista roasters coffee. Brilliant views of town and the Collegiate peaks from the balcony and main living space. After coffee, tumbling down to Main Street for food, art and a walk to the river through the friendly atmosphere of South Main.

I really liked the design for Clocktower Flat: colors, concrete counters, high ceilings, comfortable beds, clean and artful bathrooms, privacy and views, interesting art on the walls. Especially liked being right in South Main.

Alison and John did everything they could to make my stay wonderful.

Would I recommend this property to friends and relatives...YES! I am looking forward to returning with family and friends to cook a delicious meal in the cool kitchen!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed the clocktower Flat. This unit is VERY well-appointed, with everything you would ever think to need and more, especially in the kitchen. It was absolutely captivating to relax between the 5-foot tall windows with a lovely breeze blowing the sheers around. My family loved all the outdoor options available just feet from our front door. This is the first time I can remember that we were all active together, and loving every minute of it! Hiking, biking, rafting, yummy restaurants and friendly neighbors. The atmosphere was so relaxing, the scenery utterly beautiful, and the weather spectacular!

We definitely plan on returning, perhaps to enjoy the huge book and video collection during a winter stay!

Wonderful place to stay in Buena Vista

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a visit to Buena Vista and staying at the Clocktower Flat was one of the highlights of our long weekend. The apartment is very up-to-date, clean, and with the wonderful details, it really does feel like home away from home! The owners have thought of everything. One of the biggest bonuses is a well equipped kitchen -- while there are some great dining spots in town, it was nice to know that we had the option of having a home cooked meal. We look forward to visiting again and highly recommend it to others coming to the area.

We stayed a weekend in Feb, then turned around and booked the Clocktower again for March. Beautiful flat with everything you need to relax and unwind. Which is just what we're about to go do again -- can't wait!
