Hi, I'm Mark!
My wife, Diana, and myself are both 47 years old and we have lived in Buena Vista for about 11 years. We have two boys who grew up here and our youngest just graduated from high school, so we have decided to rent out our house since we have more flexibility in our schedule and living situation. We know the area pretty well and can provide our guests with information if that's desired or on the other hand we can provide complete privacy. Mark and the boys built our own timber frame home a few years ago and it turned out beautiful and we think you will find it quite cozy.
The main section of our home including the living room, kitchen, dining area, bedrooms and loft are all within the timber frame. It is a true timber framed home made out of eastern white pine and all of the construction is done with mortise and tendon joinery, where everything is oak pegged together using no nails, just like an Amish barn raising you may have seen. Other features that are worth highlighting are the granite counter tops in the kitchen, laundry room and master bathroom, dual ovens for cooking, all stainless steel appliances, wood stove, and a cinema room for your viewing pleasure.
We have a unique setting that feels like the country, but is located right in town where everything is easily accessible on foot or bicycle and we encourage exploring our town in this fashion. Our place is close to family-friendly activities and downtown Buena Vista is within walking/biking distance where you will find restaurants, shopping, galleries, the river trails, and some nightlife. For those with an adventurous spirit, there are many options close by including; the Colorado Trail, the Collegiate Peaks 14ers, the Arkansas River for rafting/kayaking/standup paddle boarding/fishing, a vast network of hiking/running/biking trails, many skiing options (Monarch 36 miles, Ski Cooper & Tennessee Pass Nordic Center 43 miles, Copper Mountain 58 miles, Breckenridge 60 miles) or just relax at our home on the patio or in the hot tub.
Thank you so much for checking out our place and we hope you will consider spending some time in Buena Vista, Colorado!+ More
