Buena Vista cabin description

The Bear Back Inn provides everything needed for the perfect vacation. Nestled in over 2 acres of heavily treed land bordering San Isabel National Forest and surrounded by the 14teener's (Collegiate Peaks) makes this vacation home unforgettable. The newly added air conditioning, a unique option in BV, is a true luxury after a long hot day river rafting.
Colorado Springs Airport is approximately 93 miles from Buena Vista and is very convenient to get in and out of. Enjoy a relaxing 2 hour scenic drive through the mountain passes and National Forest. Watch moose, antelope, deer and other wildlife go about their day.
Summer guests will enjoy world class river rafting and fly fishing on the Arkansas river. Enjoy a 45 min. scenic drive to St. Elmo ghost town, where ATV's are available for rent. There are endless hiking, biking, Atv'ing, snowmobiling and horseback trails in the area. After a long day of hard play, stop by Mt. Princeton Hot Springs for a massage or a soak in the hot mineral pools,(there's even a water slide for the kids)
Winter guests will enjoy down hill skiing at Monarch, Cooper or Copper Ski areas, all less than an hour away. There is so much to do and see, come any season to rest, relax, and renew.

                  The Bear Back Inn is nestled in San Isabel National Forest in a private community just 5 miles outside of Buena Vista, Colorado. There are many things to see and do, a short drive (20 mins or so) to Mt Princeton Hot Springs, or continue on to St. Elmo (famous ghost town) and rent ATV's/Snowmobiles for endless trails.

                  During winter months, Monarch, Cooper and Copper downhill ski areas, are all under an hours drive, or continue on to Vail or Breckenridge, an additional 30 min drive.
