The home was so comfortable and a perfect location for the four wheel trails we wanted to go on. The owners were so nice and the house was incredibably clean. Has everything you need, couldn't find anything it didn't have. Awesome place to stay.
We enjoyed our stay at Jeri's home. Our group had traveled in for the Leadville MTB Race. We were met at the home, Jeri gave us a brief tour of all the amenities, this house is equipped for any meal you want to prepare. All rooms are spacious and clean. The washer and dryer are a great addition if you are doing anything outside and want to keep your clothes clean. I highly recommend looking into this rental. Downtown BV is wonderful, it was sad to leave.
We stayed at this wonderful and unique home at the base of Mt Princeton over the Memorial Day holiday. Ed and Jeri were warm and welcoming hosts. We've stayed in several VRBO rentals and found this home to be better equipped than most. The owners have obviously spent time anticipating guests' every need. We enjoyed the quiet away from town, but had easy access to lots of the Buena Vista attractions.
This nice home is tucked away from the city and offers a spacious stay. The owner of this property is very professional and great to talk with. Communication on the property details and follow up after the rental dates was great! I would recommend this rental to family.
Our vacation was to ride ATV's in the mountains and go white water rafting. This place was a great location for both of these. House was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked.
