About Renee Graner, Pinon Real Estate Group BV

The Brockhaus family has been helping individuals like you create spectacular vacation memories in the Colorado Rockies since 1992 and at the Sunflower Room since 2007. We pride ourselves in providing unique accommodations and excellent customer service.

The Sunflower Room, located three miles outside of Buena Vista, Colorado, was bought in 1992 and completely renovated by Bob and Joyce Brockhaus in 2007. Since early 2007, it has been a vacation rental home that has served as a mountain retreat from hot and sticky summers and a headquarters for fall hiking trips.

Dr. Bob held the Coleman Chair in Entrepreneurship at Saint Louis University for 20 years and has been an invited speaker in over 20 countries.

Dr. Joyce has been the president of the Brockhaus Group which provides consulting to large family controlled businesses for over 20 years.

What makes this studio unique

Since 2007, Bob and Joyce have opened up their Sunflower Room 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 Sunflower Room 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 picnic table overlooking the creek 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, etc.) we reconvene for wine and cheese 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is in a beautiful location, nice view when you wake up in the morning. Apartment is well furnished and convenient. For cooking there is a BBQ and a microwave. Many nice hikes can be made in the area.

Warm, Cozy, and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The Sunshine Room was a very warm and cozy place to come back to each evening after exploring the area. The bed was comfortable and we got good rest the two nights we were there. The bathroom was big, and the place was nice and clean. There is a beautiful view of the mountains and river out the back sliding glass door. My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the Sunshine Room--thank you for sharing it with us!

Mountain views, rushing water

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, beautiful views, and convenient to the town of Buena Vista. Great place to use as a base to explore the "Real Colorado". The sound of Cottonwood Creek alone is worth the price of the rental.

The Sunflower room

  • 5 of 5

This was the best stay ever, not only was it close to all the things we wanted to do but the price was good to. And the view,wow, it was so quite that the only thing you heard was cottonwood creek running in the background, and the veiw was unbeliveable as well with snow caped mountians in all directions but the best was Snow caped Mt Yale looking out from your bed.

I will be coming back here real soon.

The Sunflower Room just felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in July 2017 and really enjoyed our stay. The Sunflower Room was perfect for a self-catering vacation. The place is very clean, the bathroom was large, and the kitchen had everything we needed including a hot plate and a large freezer. We would definitely stay here again if we're in the area.
