Overview

About the property

A comfortable, enjoyable mountain home with unbelievable views near 2 ski areas.

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.

Yes, there are fish in our creek; check out the last photo. Wow! Catch and release only.

We have two favorite hikes: Lost Lake and Interlachen at Twin Lakes with detailed travel directions. You will be glad you came.

In the evening you can relax before a roaring fire (indoors or out...firewood provided) while you ponder the days activities, and make plans for a great tomorrow.

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.

About Neil Atkinson

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?)

Neil Atkinson purchased this house in 2007

Why Neil Atkinson chose South Central

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.

What makes this house unique

Winter wonderland.

Inspiring scenery.

Enjoyable, comfortable, non - pretentious mountain home with log beams inside and out

Golf course across the street.

We were treated like family/old friends

  • 5 of 5

The host and owner made us feel like family/old friends. The home is beautifully decorated and quite large. Signage inside the home welcomed us to use any of the food items, small appliances, dog accessories, and sweatshirts, etc. It was a unique vacation rental experience, giving us the feeling that we were truly welcome. BV has so much to offer. We'd love to come back soon and stay for a week at this amazing property. .

Amazing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We just had the best experience at this wonderful home! We felt so welcomed! The house was perfect for the six of us. The house was stocked with extras, the beds were so comfortable, the location was perfect! The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We would highly recommend this property again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "A River Runs through it".

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 would certainly come back. Beautiful home, gorgeous setting, beautifully furnished, and well equipped. Our only complaint is that our stay was too short!

A River Runs Through It was Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We rented a "River Runs Through It", with another couple and a good friend. We had the two babies with us as well. We found the river to be charming, the house to be extremely comfortable and the surrounding area to be very scenic.

Thanks Neil for your hospitality!

Great Details!

  • 5 of 5

We felt like guests in a home. We've stayed at many VRBO's, but this was top notch! It had many nice touches from the hosts, including beautiful furnishings, firewood stacked, well stocked kitchen, (even an open pantry with incidentals), all with a wonderful view and location. Very nice!
