The home is dated, but comfortable. I stayed here with my parents (70+) and young son, and it worked very well for us. It was easy for my dad, who has reduced mobility, get around the home. Although he did trip on the front steps - they were a little tricky for him with how far the screen door swings out relative to the size of the landing. There are thermostats in every room - so you can set each space to the temp most comfortable for whoever is in it. There were games and comfortable couches. The beds were comfortable enough. And it was just over 10 minutes to Mount Princeton Hot Springs - close enough to easily make a daytime and evening trip to the hot springs. It’s also an easy 0.3 mile walk to the cute Buena Vista Main Street. There is a City Market grocery store just around the corner.It would have been nice to have a Netflix or some streaming service on the TV. The kitchen was missing measuring cups and baking sheets. But it was overall a good place to stay for a few days with family.
