  • Great place


    The house was a great place to enjoy family. Beds were comfortable, bedding clean, and a lot of towels. The kitchen was well stocked. They might give thought to adding a n electric griddle for pancakes or French toast.Great lay out. We also enjoyed the back yard. Wonderful stay!!!

  • Weekend in Buena Vista


    The property was great! Loved the access to the river. The house is roomy and cozy, close to town if you need anything. It was exactly what we hoped it would be!

  • River Retreat :)


    Loved the house and property... perfect if you are into fly fishing or just being by the river. There is a steep set of stairs down to the bank but super easy for all of us but our old-man dog and toddler to navigate. There are easy spots to take a dip in the river or just sit a chair on the bank. Amazing outdoor patio as well... we did a lot of coffee and reading on the porch overlooking the river and used the fire pit to roast hotdogs and make smores one night. Very close to main street w the cute shops and restaurants and also the River Bridge Park in town that has some good hikes. The lack of AC was not a big deal at all and the house felt cool between the house fan and open windows. Great kitchen and dining area as well that was perfect for our family dinner and eating breakfast together. We would stay here again!

  • Great family gathering spot


    This was a wonderful home for gathering my sons and families together for a niece's wedding. There are ideal spaces for time together and time apart, with room for other extended family members to stop by, visit and enjoy the river. The home is well-supplied for cooking and other needs. We especially appreciated plenty of movable, comfortable outdoor chairs that allowed us to follow the shade. The views are spectacular, and it was enjoyable to see the ways the home captures them. There are few windows in the master BR for ventilation, which is a real downside on the hotter days, but leaving the bedroom door propped open seemed to work well enough. We'll return again when we have a big crew.
