Property was exceptionally clean

  • 5 of 5

We all agreed this is the cleanest home we have ever stayed in and it was very well equipped with everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again. Buena Vista was a wonderful town, everything so close and lots of hiking and fishing opportunities.

Excellent stay at the Atwood's in Buena Vista

  • 5 of 5

We initially chose Atwood's Vacation home in Buena Vista for a week long hiking holiday, based upon walking distance to town amenities and excellent reviews. I have stayed in a number of vacation rentals over the years, but Atwood's was the cleanest and most meticulously appointed vacation home that I have been in. It was just like living at home with all the necessities. Jim and Sheryl have thought of everything you might need in the kitchen, bedrooms, living room, and patio area. All the beds were comfortable, as well as sofas in the living room area.The description of the property was spot on, and the reservation, check-in, check out, process was a breeze.

Jim was very knowledgable of the area and provided excellent information for local amenities and hiking in the Buena Vista area. Atwood's will be my first choice on any return visit to Buena Vista and I would highly recommend to friends and family.

Convenient, comfy & cozy!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Super-convenient location, walking distance to restaurants, local park, shopping, groceries. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was well-stocked, including shampoo and lotion. The kitchen had everything we needed for a week's stay, including coffee from the BV Roastery (best place in town for coffee, treats or meals). Everything was meticulous!

The owners are very responsive, helpful, and have anticipated every need, right down to candy and chocolates! We definitely recommend this for couples or families. Lots of nearby activities, including fishing, Cottonwood Hot Springs, rafting, hiking.

Truly home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property several times while visiting family in Buena Vista. It is very convenient to town and has a great park for kids out the back as well as a small pond for fishing.The home is well equipped with everything a family could need, from little kids to adults. Kitchen has all the utensils and cooking equipment that you would have at home. There is a nice outdoor table with umbrella and bar-b-q grill. Even coffee is provided. A washer/dryer is a huge plus while on the road. The Atwoods are very gracious hosts.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time renting from Jim Atwood. As usual, the house was spotlessly clean, very well supplied, and everything worked. We were especially pleased to find a fresh bag of good coffee from the Buena Vista Roastery. The location is just off W. Main, about two blocks from E. Main and all its restaurants, shops, outdoor outfitters, and less than one mile from the Arkansas river. We walked and bicycled to all these places. Great mountain bike trails start just across the river bridge.

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here a few times. The outside is deceiving, when you get inside, it's beautiful, and big. Everything you need or forgot is here. It is 10 minutes from hot springs, st elmos ghost town is close. Lots of great hiking, fishing, rafting, snowshoeing all within minutes really. I have walked to the park, over to brewery for beer and pizza. I really enjoy using this home. Great location and great place. I highly recommend it!
