Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I am a professional photographer and artist. Debbie is an accomplished interior designer partially retired. We have studios in three different states and vacation rentals in four states. My works are displayed and sold at several Galleries in California, Idaho and Colorado. You may see my work at several Galleries in Aspen. Disney Resorts commissioned me to produce several large Giclee works for their Paradise Pier Resort next to the original Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA. The new Sheraton Resort in Carlsbad, CA commissioned a work for their beautiful new ocean view lobby next door to LegoLand USA. I love shooting landscapes and BV has beautiful mountains, river, and the changing of the leaves!!! Nature at it's most majestic and beautiful............. My wife is a very talented and successful interior designer in Ca and has owned a brick and mortar design firm for years. She saw the potential in this property immediately due to her eye for seeing possibilities. We took on this project as a labor of love. It was a challenge that we were up for. Due to personal responsibilities we eventually made fewer trips to our safe little haven nestled on the river. Debbie persuaded me to open our doors to VRBO guests. We did so in 2008 and it has been so rewarding to meet new guests, hear their stories of great memories they made while staying at this special place..... We are solely the stewards of this beautiful piece of land.... We are pretty darn blessed!!!!
Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
My wife, Debbie and I were on a motor home vacation when we happened upon Buena Vista. We asked a local realtor if there was ever anything for sale on the river and was told, 'hardly ever'. She did say, however there was an odd property on the river that she did not recommend. We asked to see it anyway and fell deeply in love with it. IT WAS A GEM AND WE KNEW IT!!!! Private and right on the river with no neighbors on top of us!!! It had all kinds of old dilapidated small buildings on the 7 acres and a rough trail over government land along the river to get to it. We were lucky to have our offer accepted over two others that day! We obtained a Right-Of-Way from the government, built a 1/2 mile road and eventually replaced the cabin on the waters edge with a new cabin. We've removed the old buildings and have cut a large pad to build our dream house someday. Every local who grew up in the area that has visited our property admits they never knew it existed and that it is one of the most impressive and special finds in Central Colorado. It's truly my most favorite place on earth! And our past guests agree. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO READ OUR GUEST COMMENTS AND VIEW OUR OTHER PROPERTIES
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Peace and quiet, except for the churning sounds of rushing river water and the occasional raft or kayak passing by. The fishing is the best for rainbow and brown trout. We are completely surrounded by almost limitless BLM lands that are yours to explore. There is hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, swimming, off road vehicle trails and more 14,000 foot mountains to climb than in any other location in North America! You will not find a better or closer location to the Arkansas River anywhere along its length!
