The quintessential Colorado experience.
In addition to being very well appointed and maintained, the property offers 360 degree unobstructed panoramic views of the mountains to the east and west. Buena Vista is less than a ten minute drive from the home and has everything a visitor could possibly need, minus the outrageous price gouging one would encounter in Vail, Aspen, etc. The host was very responsive and professional, I highly recommend this property!
We look forward to hearing from our guests that they had a great experience at one of our properties. We hear over and over that the pictures of this property don't do it justice. Thank you for staying with us and please come back!
We really enjoyed staying at the Princeton retreat. The house is beautiful, spacious, and offers gorgeous views of the Collegiate Peaks. The kitchen is equipped with everything one might need to cook, the grill is very fast, and you can enjoy your meals indoor or on the porch.
The beds were comfortable and the entire property was very clean.
Renee, the property manager, is available and answers very fast any questions one might have.
Buena Vista is perfectly located to go hiking, climbing several 14ers, boating or just strolling. Great vacation!
This home was amazing! very spacious and kitchen fully equipped with all you need.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Princeton Retreat. this was a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband and our 3 adult children joined us. Having 2 full baths was a treat and plenty of places for sleeping. there are houses near by but you wouldn't really notice as they are spaced apart giving you privacy and great views of the mountains. It is also close to Buena Vista or Salida if you want to grab groceries or a bite to eat. It wasn't far from many trail heads and rafting outfitters if you are there in the summer months..
Reene was super to work with. All I can say is the cabin is as stunning as the pictures.
We thank you for a great couple of days and I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the area to enjoy the summer months or hit the ski slopes. Gables.
Nice Interior, open floorplan, great views
Newer cabin style home in a subdivision in Buena Vista. It's on a well maintained dirt road (typical for this area) set in the praries at the base of Mt Harvard. Surrounding homes are of similar style and age. I was hoping for more excluded feel of the mountains, but the newness and anemeties of the house made up for it.
There is a front and back porch, which is very helpful since this area is a little windy and it's helpful to go to the side of the house not in the wind. We saw a deer and lots if rabbits on the property.
Kitchen was easy to use with modern oven, gas stove, and appliances. Washing machine was very loud (older model) but works. Be sure to bring your own detergent if you need to do more than 1 load.
Having internet WiFi and satellite we're nice with a big screen TV. Good for entertaining the kids when needed.
4 star since the master shower could have been cleaner and the kitchen drawers housing utensils could also have been cleaner. Otherwise, a clean and nice house.
The top bunk was a nice addition, but the top rails are not tall enough to keep a kid from rolling out. So must be used for older kids. Luckily the guest bedroom has plenty of sleeping space.
The top sockets in the bedrooms are wired to a light switch. It's a nice feature if you have lamps (this house is missing that feature). But if you don't know this (we didnt) you will have trouble charging your phones and accessories. Make sure the alarm clocks are plugged into the bottom sockets (they weren't when we arrived and had some trouble with the clocks resetting) there should be some sticker on the light switches or something to indicate this since most homes are not wired in this way in the bedrooms. Without lamps, it's harder to keep a calm lighting experience since overhead bright lighting is all that is available.
It sounds like you enjoyed your stay in Buena Vista and The Princeton Retreat. Guests often expect their vacation rental to function as their home might, but we have found that all rentals are as different as the property owner, as are each of our guests. We do try our best to generally accomodate all of those who stay with us and take any concerns under advisement. Unfortunately, I didn't receive a check out form with your comments on them. However, the property owner does monitor reviews and is happy to look into each item you have addressed. As for the crazy loud washing machine, we've had it looked at severaal times by 2 different professionals with conflicting information. We are slated to replace it soon even though it still works perfectly fine.
We are a work in progress and both the owners and myself are happy to work towards meeting the needs of all of our guests. Thank you for your feedback. Check us out the next time you return to Buena Vista!
This house is perfectly located for Buena Vista and the Twin Lakes area. Very comfortable house. Beautiful views front and back. Can't wait to return!
Thank you Russ for staying with us. We hope that you and your guests enjoyed their time in Buena Vista and plan to return soon. There is always something fun and interesting to do while here.

We were literally speechless when we drove up to this house... the views are breathtaking! The house was clean and well appointed and everything worked well. It was a quick drive into town and well located for lots of hiking and other activities. It couldn't have been more perfect for our family of four and the only negative was that we had to leave. We'll be back and we plan to stay longer next time!! :)
Christina, thank you so much for staying with us. It sounds like there were smiles all around! Please keep us in mind when you wish to return to the land of aaaahs!
Some of the best craft breweries in the state are found in this area such as Eddyline and Elevation, as well as a craft whiskey distillery, The Deerhammer. If this doesn't attact you, you can participate in geocaching as well any number of other activities and events in the area.
