Property description

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, less than five miles to Buena Vista and less than one mile to the 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! Restaurants, post office, playgrounds, grocery store, gas, and convenience stores all within five miles of your Retreat!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

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

Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
We enjoy rafting, soaking in hot springs, jeeping, ATVing, hiking 14ers, exploring new places, and secluded relaxation so having a property near Buena Vista allows us to fully enjoy all of these activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
