                      If you are looking for a relaxing, enjoyable, fun filled vacation, then look no further. You have found the perfect vacation. We had everything we needed at this gorgeous property in beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado. We had such a good time, we didn’t want to leave. We felt so welcome in the house - as soon as we stepped through the doors, we already felt at home. It was so nice going on vacation but having so many comforts of home.

                      The mountain décor was beautiful and made it truly feel like a cabin in the mountains. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook each meal, and we enjoyed eating at the big table in the dining room. It was so nice watching TV on the big screen. Our favorite activity was being outside and enjoying the incredible views from the large deck while listening to the stream below. The bear cubs especially enjoyed going down to the pond and watching the fish jump. To bad we didn’t bring our fishing poles!

                      If you don’t feel like staying indoors, there is so much to do in Buena Vista. There’s snowmobiling in the winter, whitewater rafting, fishing, horseback riding, hunting, and swimming at the hot springs, just to mention a few. There are also some great restaurants to eat at if you don’t feel like cooking. It was so nice to read everyone’s nice comments about their previous stays. One guest had this to say, “The sound of water running over rocks and stones, horses grazing in the green pastures, aspen tree leaves rustling in the breeze… Memories are made of this.” And I agree.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: The Brockhaus family has been helping individuals like you create spectacular vacation memories in the Colorado Rockies since 1992. We pride ourselves in providing unique accommodations and excellent customer service. The Log Home, located three miles outside of Buena Vista, Colorado, was bought by Bob and Joyce Brockhaus in 1992 as an investment property available only for long-term rentals. In 2006, the Log Home was completely renovated and converted into a vacation rental home that has served as a mountain retreat from hot and sticky summers and a headquarters for many winter ski trips. Dr. Bob taught entrepreneurship at Saint Louis University where he held the Coleman Chair in Entrepreneurship for 20 years and has been an invited speaker in over 20 countries. Dr. Joyce has been president of the Brockhaus Group which has provided consulting services to large family controlled businesses for 20 years.

                      Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
                      This is a beautiful home which offers all the comforts of your home including washer & dryer and dishwasher. It also has a beautiful rock fireplace. Waterfront property is a premium in Colorado and this house sits right on Cottonwood Creek. It couldn't be any more spectacular with Buffalo Peaks to the east, and the Collegiate Peaks Range to the west.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Since 1992, Bob and Joyce have opened up their log home to friends, family and many guests who share their love for beautiful mountain views, great fishing and relaxation that can only be found in the mountains. When you arrive at the Log Home and hear the gentle roar of Cottonwood Creek, see the trout jumping in the private fishing pond and stand in awe of the 14,000+ foot mountains that surround you, you can not help but feel the worries of the day-to-day life melt away. One of our favorite “rituals” is to have breakfast/coffee out on the deck overlooking the creek and fishing pond in the morning to talk about what everyone wants to do that day. After a fun filled day of activity (fishing, shopping, rafting, skiing, reading, etc) or non-activity (naps and/or sunbathing on the deck) we reconvene for wine and cheese on the balcony to discuss who is cooking dinner or what great local restaurant we are heading off to. Yep…that is our basic routine. You should try it…it is an easy lifestyle to get used to.
