SECLUDED. LUXE. PEACEFUL. BORDERED BY NATIONAL FOREST ON 3 SIDES

Buena Vista Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms; 2 Bathrooms; Sleeps 6

The towering trees that stand sentinel over the grassy meadow can tell the story of the Chalk Creek stagecoach stopping to water the weary horses in the Wilsey ditch while the tenacious riders are talking of how nice it would be to have a comfortable cabin just on the edge of this meadow where you could watch the bighorn sheep traverse down the mountain to graze.

Fast forward to 2014. That same stagecoach road is now a driveway. The same ditch runs through the property. The same grassy meadow is still the salad bowl for bighorn sheep and other wildlife. But now there is the rider's dreams cabin, BigHorn On The Wilsey. A 1300 SF custom-built immaculate 3 BR, 2 BA home. Designer colors on the walls bring the outside in. Go to any window and it becomes a frame for the beauty of nature ~ tall pine trees, quaking aspen, willows, and outstanding 14er mountain views. The shady front porch is the place to relax on a hot summer day. A leisurely walk down the drive yields a view of the Wilsey ditch and grassy meadows. A variety of wildlife drink from the ditch. The bighorn sheep viewing meadow is adjacent to the property. While the rest of us park our vehicles and hope to see the bighorn sheep in the few moments we are there, you have a front row seat to the mountain they climb in order to reach the meadow. The cabin and its 2 acres are surround on 3 sides by USFS/State land. No neighbors in sight. No roads in sight. No noise. Clear starry skies. 100% nature. This is Colorado perfect.

Occupancy: Six (6); One King bed, One Queen bed, One Twin bed with Twin Trundle in open loft; 2 Full Bathrooms with Bathtub/Shower Combo (One upper, One main); luxurious designer bedding and linens; designer wares fully stocked in kitchen; Free WiFi; Land-line telephone with Free Local and calls; HDTV flat screen TV with Sony DVD/CD player and Bose speakers; Designer propane stove in Great Room; Washer and Dryer; Ample closets/storage; outdoor grill; in-ground fire pit; horseshoe pit.

BigHorn On The Wilsey is your private (and convenient) base for mass exploration; world-renowned white-water rafting or fishing on the Arkansas River, soaking in Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, wildlife viewing on the property, star-gazing the night sky, walking trails (CDOT and Colorado Trail), hiking 14ers, touring ghost towns (St. Elmo, Hancock, Tincup) and other historic sites, taking your Jeep up the 4x4 trails (complete maps inside cabin), gem and mineral collecting on Mt. Antero and Ruby Mountain, fishing nearby lakes, snowshoeing, downhill skiing at Monarch, Nordic skiing, sledding, composing your memoir, reconnecting with loved ones, quiet reflection, and absolute relaxation.

About Manager

Originally from the Midwest, my husband and I moved to Colorado because of our love of the mountains. We have a young son now and especially would like to instill in him the importance of nature; ultimately, we try to spend as much time in the outdoors as possible.

Manager purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Manager chose Buena Vista

We enjoy white-water rafting, jeep and ATV trails, soaking in natural hot springs, hiking 14ers, exploring historical areas, gem collecting, wildlife viewing, and the absolute peace of nature. BigHorn On The Wilsey is the perfect home base to appreciate all of the aforementioned activities.

What makes this cabin unique

BigHorn On The Wilsey is unlike any other property in the area. The cabin is surrounded by USFS/State Land on three sides, no roads or other structures/homes in sight, has direct access to walking and hiking trails, and views of unobstructed mountains and wildlife from any window. The waterfalls can be heard from the cabin, and at night, all the stars shine with zero light noise and a feeling of being out in the middle of the wilderness although the cabin is only a few miles from the closest convenience.

Good

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic place. The owner was quick to respond to all questions before and after our stay. It is located in a beautiful valley. Lots of windows and every one has a great view of the forest or the chalk cliffs. We watched Mtn Goats, Bighorn Sheep, Deer, and rabbits from the back deck. No neighbor noise, no road noise, a perfect quiet setting. Make sure to take the short drive to the little town of St Elmo and feed the chipmunks! The beds were very comfortable, towels and linens were of good quality. Kitchen was well stocked. Cuisinart coffee pot with coffee from a local roaster provided. TV with good selection of family movies.
We went zip-lining in Salida one day, awesome! Next day we drove to Taylor res and rented a boat. This property is located in a great spot for doing a variety of outdoor activities.
Super place and we will be back!

Private, peaceful and perfect

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with this quaint little cabin the minute we turned the corner up the private drive, passed through the aspen grove and crossed the peaceful brook welcoming you to Bighorn on the Wilsey. The views are absolutely stunning from any window you choose. The cabin in well apportioned and accommodated our extended stay quite well. Just a short drive up the road are stunning cascade rapids, terrific hiking paths, and the quaint little abandoned mining town of St. Elmo. Buena Vista and Salida are just a short drive away to enjoy dining and shopping. But it was hard to leave the peaceful surroundings of the cabin, with constant companions of deer, rabbit, humming birds and chipmunks. The owners are great to work with and for the value, you can't beat the price. Having stayed in similar properties in the area on past vacations, this was definitely one our family's favorite places to stay and we plan to make a habit of coming back!

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5
I can not recommend this rental highly enough. I was looking for a place to get out and enjoy the mountains and some solitude. This cabin was perfect for that. The cabin was in great shape and had just about everything we needed (kitchen/kitchen utensils/grill/laundry, etc). The scenery around the cabin is incredible and they are a lot of great hikes within a couple minutes of the cabin. The owner was also extremely helpful and prompt in answering questions/concerns. I definitely hope to stay at the cabin at some point in the future.

Words cannot accurately describe this property, and so I will not try to. All I can say is we were looking for a place to get away and unwind. Well, if that is your intention, then this is the place. The views are spectacular and ever changing. In the few short days we were there we had snow, clouds, and beautiful sunny blue skies as our backdrop. And all the comforts of home could be found with in the homestead. We cannot thank you enough for sharing this little slice of heaven.

Family holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5
I hesitate to even leave a review for fear that so many people will race to rent this property it won't be available when we want to return! I don't even know where to begin! It is so cozy, isolated, quiet, comfortable, warm, home away from home, perfect location for Chaffee County, IN THE WOODS! Our family arrived with a 13 year old daughter, 11 and 7 year old sons and they didn't want to leave!!! We hiked in the snow, enjoyed the hot springs, skied Monarch two days, played all the games, assembled a 500 + puzzle (we brought), watched movies, cooked in, went out, enjoyed Salida and Buena Vista. We have VERY well behaved children which is good because the cabin is VERY high end. The furniture, blankets, linens, towels, pillows are all first class. The kitchen is all perfectly appointed. It had EVERYTHING we needed. We threw a pot roast in the crock pot one morning before skiing and came home to dinner! We LOVED that there wasn't any TV channels! Just a DVD player for night time movies. The wifi was perfect for searching weather, restaurants and activities in the surrounding towns, and travel information. The owner is serious about the propane stove/fireplace - it cranks the heat! We didn't need to adjust any of the baseboard heaters. The owner was amazing to work with. This cabin was just what our family was looking for and more! Thank you so much!!!
