    What a beautiful perfect home for a getaway in the mountains. We loved all the extra care they provided. Any little thing we forgot they had it, even batteries! I loved the soft blankets and decor and the kitchen was so fun to cook in. They had every pot, pan instant pot you could think of. I was also impressed with the entertainment they had to offer. I would definitely come back again. What an amazing experience.

    Relaxing creek retreat!

    Reviewed by: Lila B. on


    Being on the creek we would expect to see wildlife...our first morning paid off, I saw a large bear in the "wild" for the first time in my life. Wonderful!! So neat watching him/her trying to rummage through everyone's garbage...The house was nice enough to be comfortable when we were not attending wedding activities and it is close enough to town that we could drive back and rest between events and watch baseball on the tv. Small plumbing issue while we were there but we improvised and managed to get all get ready on time. I will definitely seek this property for rental again when I come the next time to visit family in Buena Vista.

    Love, love, loved this place! So wish I were back! The owners put a lot of thought to ensuring every need of the renter was met. Fresh fruit on the dinner table, plenty of coffee supplies ready for us, great appliances- you can tell they think about their renters. Big kudos to this company, the owners and man this is an amazing spot. I loved going to sleep each night with the sound of the river outside my window. We enjoyed breakfast at the gazebo, morning coffee on the river banks. Really incredible.

    Very nice house much larger than it appears from the outside. Kitchen with everything you could want. New washer and dryer. Very comfortable living room. Bedrooms have really comfortable beds. Owner set out a large tray of cookies , apples and bananas and plenty of Keurig pods for coffee. Loved sleeping with sounds of the creek and seeing deer in the yard every afternoon. Easy access to both the new and the old BV town which are wonderful.

    Fantastic clean updated home

    Reviewed by: Big active family on


    This house fit our needs perfectly. The house was super clean and well stocked. They had everything you would need. We have stayed in many rentals and this one was one of the best. The backyard was heavenly with the creeks running through there that you could chill by. We had many campfires and even cooked dinner over it one night. Very close to biking to adorable downtown BV. We would definitely go back again. Beds were comfy and water pressure was great for showers, which you don't always find. Thanks for a great BV experience. Side note we highly recommend taking the drive up to the cottonwood pass. Drive up cottonwood pass onto the contential divide for hands down one of the best views in Colorado. Only 45 mins drive to top on new paved road all the way up! Enjoy!

    Super time in fabulous setting!

    Perfect stay at Creekside Retreat

    Reviewed by: DeLila R. on


    This was our first time to GORGEOUS BV! Our daughter is a river raft guide this summer so wanted to visit her to experience this part of Colorado along with my parents. Tim & Connie's Creekside Retreat was perfect! They have thought of every detail from the updated & well equipped kitchen to battery operated candles near the soaking claw tub to the sitting area next to the calming creek to fresh fruit & brownies awaiting us upon our arrival! The beds are very comfortable & the location is superb, just minutes from Main Street, Brown Dog Cafe & City Market grocery. Not only do you have the rushing of the creek from the backyard & kitchen windows but beautiful views of the snow-capped mountains out the front. This is a gem & hope to be back soon!

    Cozy mountain getaway

    Reviewed by: Mickey on


    We stayed for the long weekend with another family and really enjoyed our stay. The home sits down towards the creek which is nice because you don't see too much of the neighbors through the home windows but rather good mountain views. The home was clean, beds were comfy, and proximity to all things in Chaffee county worked out well. We'll definitely consider staying here again for future trips.

    We have not stayed overnight there but have seen it and the surrounding area. Am highly looking forward to staying there for a couple of days when we get back from Texas. Although larger than the 2 of us need - It would be very great for a family or even 2 families sharing the place.
