Great location. Very accommodating space!

Great location and easy to find. Lots of room for everyone and having the kitchen saved a ton on money and time on getting breakfast in BV. Close to everything!

Perfect Rental for our Family Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We brought my Pennsylvanian parents to BV for a long weekend and stayed at the Atwood's home. We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect. Our daughter loved the bunk beds and they even had a pack n play and high chair for our son. The house is so very accommodating and clean. Thank you Jim and Cheryl for your hospitality and opening this wonderful little home up to our family.

P.S. the little store next door is a diamond in the rough! DVD rentals and beautiful hand crafted jewelry.

Beyond perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have imagined a more homey, relaxing and perfect vacation rental. Jim was amazing to work with and I will most certainly be returning. Wonderful location in town and plenty of space inside. We appreciated all the TV channels after a long day of hiking, and the available Internet came in handy. The master bedroom was excellent. The couches were incredibly comfy. Highly recommended! I'll be telling all my friends and family, and definitely coming back. Thank you Atwood's for everything! You made our long weekend away from Denver PERFECT!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is very clean and comfortable, and the owners are very friendly. This was my first time ever using VRBO and I was very pleased with the experience. I would like to return again on another family trip now that I know I have a great place to come back to!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Nice place right in the heart of BV. Close proximity to everything in town as well as all the mountain activities we adore. Absolutely spit-spot clean with all the amenities you could want/need. From the outside, it looks a bit non-descript, but come inside and you will see how lovely this place is. Three nice bedrooms and two baths, a complete kitchen and a wonderful backyard. We brought our bicycles with us and were pleased with the bike rack in the back! I would absolutely recommend this place....and plan to return again myself.

Third Year in a Row

  • 5 of 5

Third year in a row. I’ve been hiking 14ers for the last 8 years and for the last 3 years we’ve been staying at the Atwood’s. It’s perfect for our needs and actually has many more features that we require. Everything is provided that 3 mature men could ever think of. Buena Vista is centrally located to many of the mountains in the Sawatch Range. There are many places to eat, from local family owned restaurants to trendy restaurants. You can also walk to the majority of places in town. The Atwoods are wonderful hosts and they will always be our primary choice when we return to Buena Vista.
