4 BR/2 BA -- Sleeps 8-10

Nestled within the San Isabel National Forest between Mt. Princeton and Mt. Yale at the base of Cottonwood Pass, at the end of a secluded driveway is your Retreat on Cottonwood Creek: a 2,500 square foot, 4 BR/2BA creekside refuge for the entire family, weary traveler, wandering explorer, or romantics-at-heart.

Your Retreat is comprised of one King bed in the upstairs over-sized Master Suite with sitting area, one Queen bed in the Tree House, two Twin beds on the upper floor and two Twin beds on the main floor, and two Roll-away beds; designer furnishings throughout, organic bedding and linens, three satellite HD flat-screen TVs with DVD/CD players (one in LR, one in FR, and one in Master Suite), free high-speed wireless internet service, an ultra-private separate Tree House, outdoor hot tub, outdoor stainless steel grill, creek side picnic table, 500' of private creek frontage, private fishing, large patio with outdoor furniture, balcony and lanai, outdoor fire pit; not in a subdivision, no views of any roads, unobstructed views of creek and mountains, four miles to Buena Vista and one-half mile to a hot springs/spa.

There are a multitude of activities to enjoy in the area: fish privately right out the front door, hike the Continental Divide Trail or Colorado Trail, summit a 14er, explore old mining towns or uncover gemstones via ATV and Jeep trails in the Jeep Capitol of the World, white-water raft or kayak the world-renowned Arkansas River, take a horseback ride through the woods, or soak in the nearby hot springs, and more!

About Manager

Originally from the Midwest, my husband and I moved to Colorado because of our love of the mountains.

Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Manager chose South Central Colorado

We enjoy rafting, soaking in hot springs, jeeping, ATVing, hiking 14ers, exploring new places, and secluded relaxation so having a property near Buena Vista in this private, creek side location allows us to fully enjoy all of these activities.

What makes this house unique

As soon as we drove down the private, secluded driveway, we knew this was the place: creek side, quiet, acreage, awesome views of the surrounding mountains, no views of any roads, not in a subdivision, cozy but roomy interior, and the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere even though we were less than 10 minutes from BV. Especially nice is watching the deer and herons move through the property and the soothing sounds of the creek as you are dozing off to sleep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for your hospitality. The house was perfect and so beautiful in every way. We enjoyed our stay and the VRBO property was the icing on the cake. We will highly recommend your place to anyone we meet. Thanks again.

Very nice having the creek that close. The house is well stocked and the couches are enourmous! A great stay.

Great girls' get away home

  • 4 of 5

This is a well kept, good sized, pet & baby friendly, private home in a beautiful location. Located in the woods with a rushing stream nearby, also close to Buena Vista and hot springs. Owner was very responsive to a couple issues we had operating things in the home and fair with adjusting rate when fewer people were able to be there.

Lovely surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the secluded house on Cottonwood Creek with my husband, 2 daughters, mother and mother-in-law. Getting to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the creek was amazing. The house was stocked well with pretty dishes and enough cooking utensils for hearty dinners. Situated close enough to Buena Vista to access the happenings there but secluded also to enjoy nature. Especially loved the hot tub and neat fire pit.

The Cottonwood Retreat was excellent

  • 5 of 5

The stay was wonderful. The cabin is very secluded, quiet except for the sounds of Cottonwood Creek flow, close to nice restaurants, lakes and the Arkansas River. The cabin was very comfortable and had all the conveniences of home - great family experience.

Great family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 family members, from Colorado, California, and Maine, gather together in Buena Vista for a great time together. This house on Cottonwood Creek was one of the few that would house all of us. We all fit well and were able to sleep, eat, enjoy the shady patio on hot days, and even take naps when needed. The location was so close to Cottonwood Lake and other hiking trails, plus to town and white water rafting. This house allowed me (from Colorado) to show off the best of Colorado to the out-of-town family members. The owners responded immediately to our needs and were very gracious. Thanks for a great time!
