About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

You might be thinking, 'For that price, there must be something wrong with it!' But look at our consistent 5 Star Reviews and you'll see that it is simply a wonderful value and a comfortable, fun place to stay.

This home has personality! It is very unique, charming and private. This mountain home on the golf course 9n spectacular Buena Vista) is completely yours - no one else lives on the property and no close neighbors. It's comfortable and sunny, clean and nicely furnished. There are plenty of places for people to spread out or come together. It is always a hit with our guests!

"Buena Vista Home" has all the amenities for a relaxing and fun vacation. There are gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and golf course, 3 large and private decks for lounging, barbecuing or star-gazing. 55' TV and High Speed WiFi. Down comforters are on all beds in the winter and festive quilts for the summer. We provide many essentials that other vacation properties don't, such as coffee and tea, spices, foil, plastic wrap, garbage bags, dish and laundry soap, shampoo and conditioner, paper towels, napkins and toilet paper, and propane for the grill. You're on vacation, you shouldn't have to shop so much!

The Living and Dining areas are under a Vaulted Ceiling separated from the well-equipped kitchen by a 4 seat bar. Gas range. The dining table seats 6; sofa and chairs by the gas fireplace. At 8000' even summer mornings are chilly, so a fire can be sweet!

The main floor Master Bedroom has a king-size bed, its own full bath, TV/DVD and sliding glass doors to the West Deck.

The family room is a big, passive solar area with sofa sleeper, big comfy chairs, 55' flat screen TV, game table and wonderful views through the 3 walls of windows.

The second floor bedroom has two twin beds (which can be pushed together to make a king) and a bunk bed, as well as its own Large Balcony (10' x 20') for beautiful mountain views. A full bath is down the hall. The third bedroom is a private attic loft with a 'secret' stairway. (Please be aware this is an angled ladder.) It has a full bed, two big skylights and two windows.

Collegiate Peaks Golf Course is privately owned, but open to the public. The greens fees are very reasonable. Pedestrians are allowed to walk the course off-golf hours (before 7:00 am and after 8:00 pm. NO DOGS ANYTIME.)

As you enter Chaffee County from Trout Creek Pass and see 14,000'+ Mt. Princeton, Mt. Yale, and Mt. Antero there is a road sign that states, "Now THIS is Colorado!" And so it is. Enjoy!

About Maura Youle

We were living our dream when we bought this cool mountain house in '93. We enjoyed BV until we received an opportunity to move overseas (Egypt). We weren't sure where we would land when we came back to the USA, so we didn't sell the house and we are really glad we didn't. VRBO has worked out perfectly! We love this house and so does everyone who stays there! There's just something about it. You'll see....

Awesome little cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in BV! We came to celebrate a friend of mine that is getting married. This cabin was perfect for us and a great location close to town. We went when it was great weather also. The days were warm and the evenings were cool. So it kinda took the house to get cooled off. One friend was expecting so she was a little miserable when it was hotter and the house still needed to be cooled off. Other than that it was peaceful and aweome!!

Even better than 5 stars!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great Rental! Our family needed a little R&R and chose to stay here with our 3 kids and 1 family dog. Great location, great accommodations, beautiful views. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. This house worked perfectly for us. All the beds were very comfortable. Plenty of clean fresh linens. Kitchen had everything we needed. Lots of room to seat everyone at meal time and chill time on couches. This rental had quite a few extra little touches that we just loved. A solar room. An upstairs hideout with futon that can only be accessed by the ladder. 3 decks, 1 in front, 1 in back, 1 off one of the bedrooms, and at least 2 of the decks have patio furniture. Pretty rope lights set on timer to come on in the kitchen. A little wooden pullout step under kitchen sink, ha ha, my kids got to help do dishes (happy mama) Gas fireplace, games for the kids, dog mat/bowls, windows throughout the house to let the warm sun in. All furniture was comfy. We loved the layout and unique architecture of this house. Quiet neighborhood. I never get tired of watching the wildlife. Would love to stay again. Highly recommend. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful home with everything we could have wanted!!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home with plenty of room for our family. Kitchen was well equipped and the property manager was very hospitable. Just enough privacy on the edge of town, but still close to things. We enjoyed seeing the deer every day!

Incredible and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters went for a reunion together. It's so peaceful and quiet there. Great for relaxation. The house is gorgeous inside and furnished so that you don't bring much but clothes. We were amazed at how the deer were tame enough to be so close in your yard. We made a game of counting deer just on the road that led to town! City market (grocery store) was close enough to make a quick run. If you want to feed the chipmunks at the crossing in St. Elmo, bring your own sunflower seeds if you go during off season. The mercantile store is closed. Salida is such a fun town-so artsy and old fashioned. The views are incredible in whatever direction you go! The house, the town, the peace, there is nothing more to say. If you want to get away and live in comfort and peace, get up in the morning with a hot cup of coffee, step out on the deck, say hello to the deer, take a deep breath of mountain air and stare at the beauty around you, then this is it! Thank you Maura! From the Boone girls.

Beautiful and serene location with a great owner

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to celebrate my hubs birthday. The house was perfect for accommodating the 6 adults, 1 infant and dogs. Beautiful home, quiet location and conveniently located to any stores that you may need. Also only 10 minutes or so from Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Maura, the owner, was responsive and worked with us on all requests. We'll definitely be back!
