About Manager

Originally from the Midwest, my husband and I moved to Colorado because of our love of the mountains.

Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Manager chose Buena Vista

We enjoy rafting, soaking in hot springs, jeeping, ATVing, hiking 14ers, exploring new places, and secluded relaxation so having a property near Buena Vista allows us to fully enjoy all of these activities.

What makes this house unique

As soon as we drove down the private, secluded driveway, we knew this was the place: creek side, quiet, acreage, awesome views of the surrounding mountains, no views of any roads, not in a subdivision, cozy but roomy interior, and the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere even though we were less than 10 minutes from BV. Especially nice is watching the deer and herons move through the property and the soothing sounds of the creek as you are dozing off to sleep.

Wonderful place at the foot of the Collegiate Peaks.

  • 5 of 5

"The Cabin" was perfect for us - roomy, very well equipped and appointed, inviting, and comfortable. The cost was very reasonable considering all the amenities. The management was responsive. Weather delayed our arrival and they worked with us regarding arrival time and checkout time. Our security deposit was refunded very quickly.

Given the opportunity we will stay there again.

Wonderful for our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Colorado for a week in October and loved our stay at the cabin. Very clean and homey. Secluded yet close enough to town. Enjoyed the hot tub and tree house bedroom as well as the sound of the creek from our bedroom window. We will definitely be returning!

A great venue for our small wedding ceremon.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this to host our small outdoor wedding ceremony. The surrounding area is beautiful, and the aspen trees and creek just a few steps away were gorgeous. The cabin itself is a fantastic place to stay, nicely furnished and enjoyable.

Retreat on the Creek is a Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is really outstanding. It has a ton of room and if very comfortable. The master is SUPER!! It's huge and very, very comfortable. The views from the cabin are very good and the creek running by the cabin was really nice. The cabin is a little older than I thought from the pictures, but, a very, very nice place. I would highly recommend it.

Wonderful venue for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect week at the Retreat on Cottonwood Creek. My husband and I and our four adult sons and two daughters-in-law gathered from all over the US to spend a week at this lovely home. We knew we loved the area--when our boys were small we had camped at Chalk Lake and explored the region.

The home itself is everything it claims to be....quiet, peaceful, secluded, comfortable. I have never rented a house with such comfortable furniture and luxurious linens--thank you! We used the house as headquarters for many adventures: hiking, bagging a 14er, fishing, and rafting. The beautiful surprise is that you truly can fish the creek that borders the property. My fly fishermen caught plenty of brookies and browns in Cottonwood Creek; the cutthroat and rainbow hang out above Cottonwood Lake and below Chalk Lake.

We will most certainly return to this home unless we decide we need to purchase one of our own.
