Property description

Our home is located on Cottonwood Creek with unimpeded mountain views (including several 14teeners) across the water.

On a quiet cul de sac, in a golf course community, you will enjoy sitting by a fire while the water rushes by less than 10 feet from you. A beverage tastes so much better when your surroundings are among the best in the state.

You will see wildlife (deer, mink, bobcat, fox and the occasional bear). This comfortable mountain home will give you and your family a respite from the frantic pace of normal life

Beautiful fall colors are available as you hike thru phenomenal scenery. We have two favorites, Lost Lake and Interlachen at Twin Lakes with detailed travel directions. You will be glad you came.

Ski Cooper and Monarch are wonderful, unknown ski resorts 45 minutes from the house. Copper Mountain is 75 minutes away. Warning: Ski Cooper and Monarch are addictive...and inexpensive.

In the evening you can relax before a roaring fire (indoors or out...firewood provided) while you ponder the days activities, and anticipate the evenings sports entertainment in our media room.

The home has been completely renovated to reflect mountain living for 4-6 guests. Sleeping arrangements are one king, one queen and 2 twin beds in 3 bedrooms as well as two and a half baths.

Pets are welcome but they must not exceed 30 lbs and must have recently had their toenails clipped (new flooring).

The well equipped kitchen (2 ovens) comes with a stocked pantry of condiments and spices.

The View Room is a comfortable way to relax with a book, a magazine, a game or by simply watching the river meander in front of Mt. Columbia.

Pure Colorado. It is not going to get any better than this!
Come join the fun.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We have been visiting the Arkansas River Valley for a really long time. The area is beautiful and largely unspoiled. (Can you say one stop light town?)

Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista, CO, USA:
We bought the creek and the house came with it. After extensive renovation, we have our masterpiece. We love the lifestyle of activity and relaxation that summer brings to the mountains. After fishing, tennis, exploring, camping or golf, we enjoy the serenity of the flowing water of Cottonwood Creek and the beauty of the mountain range as we sit by a fire with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Winter wonderland. Inspiring scenery. Enjoyable, comfortable, non - pretentious mountain home with log beams inside and out Golf course across the street.
