About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to the ultimate home base for mountain adventure and relaxation! This luxurious guesthouse features a gorgeous interior with a balcony overlooking a narrow cobblestone street and the Boulder Garden Park. Step out your door, and you're walking by the river, riding a cruiser bike around downtown Buena Vista, fishing, rock climbing, whitewater kayaking or enjoying an IPA at Eddyline Restaurant and Brewery. Book a raft trip and you can launch just upstream from your rental. All without a moment in the car. That's hard to beat, and that's why we call South Main home!

You're centrally located for skiing, 50 minutes from Monarch, an hour or so from Ski Cooper and 1.5 hours or less from resorts like Copper Mountain, Vail and Breckrenridge. Plus there's great cross-country skiing in the mountains just west of town or up in Leadville!

After you're back from your adventure of choice, kick back and enjoy this exceptional guesthouse! The efficiently designed main living area includes a full kitchen and an entertainment system with Netflix, Pandora radio and cable TV. From the zinc countertops and stair runner to the reclaimed mixed hardwood floor, this is a unique and innovative space in which to enjoy your vacation. And of course stay connected with free wireless access.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is a design dream - reclaimed, thick wooden floors, a sleek, streamlined kitchen, gorgeous farmhouse-style windows, beautiful, modern bathroom goes on. I had some special requests for the staff (late check-in, prepayment) and they were incredibly accommodating, giving me their personal cell phone numbers and responding to all needs in a prompt and friendly manner. We spent the mornings of our three-night stay walking to Bv's best (the River Park, Roastery) and the kitchen was so furnished, we even got to cook one evening and enjoy a dinner on the patio. The neighbors are delightful. I would consider returning to BV just to stay in this dream rental again. Thanks, Andre!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect space for my wife and I to have a little weekend away. Well appointed with the essentials and really cool details. Walking distance to Main St and really nice balcony for morning coffee or an early evening glass of wine. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Beautiful well-stocked guesthouse in close proximity to many fun things to do and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Check In was extremely easy and we were able to communicate by text (love this and very convenient!). The guesthouse was stocked with everything we needed to make our own breakfasts which was quite convenient or reheat leftover pizza from our favorite restaurant. Walking distance to our favorite brewery and the river. 360 views of mountains and a cute porch over-looking a cobblestone street with the collegiate peaks in the background. Everything was immaculately clean and the heated floors were absolutely fantastic! We actually made time to be able to spend enjoying this guesthouse. This trip we skied and Monarch and the proximity was perfect. Although Salida is closer to Monarch, it doesn't have anything like this quaint village-like feel. Had a wonderful time!

Beautiful modern apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The South Main area of Buena Vista is such a unique and interesting area of town, and the Swift Street Guesthouse is a beautifully appointed property. You can really see all the attention paid to detail in every aspect of the apartment. It is a very cozy space, perfect for a romantic getaway. Would highly recommend it!

Cute condo by river

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Walking to the river and trails near river. Very clean and quiet. Perfect for someone trying to get away for a long weekend. Make sure you eat at the Brewery around the corner. Delicious!

South Main Rules

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful modern property with great attention to detail in the construction. In floor heating and a 20'+ ceiling round out some of the unique features of this place. The South Main area of Buena Vista is very neat, and is also within a short walk to downtown. You are also very near to the Arkansas River if you feel like going for a quick walk. Would highly recommend this property.

Swift Street Guest House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Swift Street Guest House for a weekend and the South Main neighborhood in general. The location is fantastic, we could hear the river through our open bedroom window and enjoyed walking the trail. It would be a great place for a couple of kayakers. We loved being able to walk to Eddyline Brewery! The guest house is lovely, comfortable, and perfect for 2 people. We will definitely stay here again when returning to Buena Vista.
