Buena Vista cabin description

The beautifully restored PINE LOG CABIN is perfectly located in the heart of the Collegiate and Sawatch Mountain Ranges on the banks of the legendary trout filled Cottonwood Creek in a private creek-side setting. Warm, cozy and inviting, the cabin has a fully equipped kitchenette and a spacious updated comfortable living room with cable 32' LED flat screen TV, queen bedroom has TV/DVD player and free WiFi internet access. There is a queen bed, a memory foam-topped full size bed, cabin-style quilted bedding, linens, pillows and blankets in each of the two bedrooms, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room, the cabin can accommodate up to 8 guests comfortably.
Buena Vista, 'pleasant view' is quaintly nestled at the base of the Majestic Collegiate and Sawatch Mountains in a protected valley called the 'Banana Belt'. We have the largest concentration of mountain peaks that exceed 14,000ft elevation in Colorado and the lower 48 states. ***BUNEA VISTA WAS VOTED #1 OUTDOOR DESTINATION WITH EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD***. With the Arkansas River passing through the valley, we are known as the WHITEWATER RAFTING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.

Local activities include whitewater rafting, kayaking, hiking, cycling, ATV rentals and tours, 4-wheeling and rock-crawling, rock climbing, bouldering, fly and spin fishing and ice fishing, two hot springs nearby, jeep rentals and tours, horseback riding, sleigh rides, local ghost towns, sightseeing, hunting, geocaching, rockhounding, ziplining, hot-air balloon rides, snowboarding, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, telemark skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, tubing, snow-cat tours, ski biking, llama trekking, bike rentals, and snowshoeing trails and rentals.

The log cabin is less than 5 minutes from rafting, kayaking, ATV's, Jeeps and the majestic and exotic **NATURAL HOT SPRINGS** that bubble right out of the creek at the base of the mountains.

Come spend adventure filled days and amazing nights under the blanket of stars as the sun fades behind majestic snow capped mountains.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: We stayed here on a Art Tour, fell in love with the property, the mountains and the small Mayberry-look-alike town. We have been coming to Colorado since we were both kids. We both love the outdoors, nature and all the activities associated with the mountains. We are from Texas and want everyone to make Thunder Lodge their family's vacation destination for many generations to come.

          Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
          We traveled all over Colorado looking for the 'perfect location'. We stayed at here at Thunder lodge and wrote a contract for it the next day. All the seasons of the year are magical, the location is central to all activities, and you have to come experience it yourself to truly understand. Buena Vista is the OUTDOOR MECCA OF COLORADO.
