We have been here 14 years and have fallen in love with the downtown area. What is so neat about BV is that our downtown is small and relatively quiet, close to the trails and right next to our River Walk and the Arkansas River. So everything you like to do outdoors is right next to downtown. And our property is just 2 blocks off Main St. So walk or ride everywhere you want to start your adventures. No long drives to get to what you want to do on vacation. It is all right here.

You will be very close to our popular BV River Park and BV Trails systems. The downtown area is clean and relatively quiet for Buena Vista is not a very big town.
Getting around the Buena Vista area is quit easy. You can walk to a lot of places and it is also very biker and dog friendly town too. The apartment has parking for 2 cars also. You will want a car to get to other destinations like the hot springs, the Collegiate Peaks and local ski areas. There is a shuttle to and from the DIA airport.
Other Things to Note

And yes, world class hot springs, skiing, hiking, coffee, whiskey, beers, music, rivers, and a thousand other things to do right here.
This apartment is attached to the master house. It has it's own entry and a shared yard. We are fun folks but also have a daughter and work most days. Quiet hours are 10:30 pm to 6:30 am. The apartment in NON SMOKING. Pets are on a case by case basis and requires pre approval and a $45 per night additional fee. We enjoy meeting cool people from around the world. We love the company and showing people our awesome little mountain town. Enjoy.
Earl was the perfect host. He was super nice and made sure we were well-informed and ready to enjoy our weekend adventure. The apartment was spotless and the kids entertained themselves all weekend on the in-room rock wall.
The apartment was just a short walk into downtown Buena Vista and just a 15-minute ride to the hot springs.
We had a great time and would love to stay at Earl's place again next time we are in BV.
Thanks SO much Earl and Cheryl for such a great stay! We loved your place and location cannot be beat! Thanks for being so attentive and I really hope to stay again, next time I am in BV!!!
Earl and Cheryl were great hosts. I ran into them a couple of times in the courtyard, and they were available for questions when needed, but otherwise they provided total privacy. The space is wonderfully appointed and comfortable with plenty of room and lots of nooks and crannies. I will definitely be back!
The Garden Apartment, Earl, and BV are the things dreams are made of. Walk one minute to the coffee shop. Drink coffee. Then walk two minutes to the distillery. Make more insta-friends with the locals than you have back home. Enjoy the outdoors, go to the creek, climb a mountain. Then head back to the apartment, relax on the patio, take a nap and wake yourself up by traversing the climbing wall. Fantastic town, super helpful hosts, refreshing apartment and locals all 'round.
Best AirBnB I have stayed in so far. Very accommodating hosts that made us feel right at home and were very willing to offer advice. The apartment is beautiful would recommend to anyone.
Two of my friends and I stayed for the weekend, and had such a wonderful time! We were so impressed with the apartment... it is beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. There was plenty of space for us to spread out, and it was really nice having the kitchenette. Earl and Cheryl are really wonderful and friendly people. They both stopped in to make sure that we had everything we needed and gave us plenty of suggestions on where to go and what to do. However, the apartment was such a fantastic space to hang out in, that we barely left! We did manage to make it out to the distillery (where we had some amazing drinks), and the Asian Palate, which was delicious. Also, having the Roastery just steps away serving incredible coffee was awesome in the mornings. I can't say enough good things about Cheryl and Earl's place and Buena Vista, and am looking forward to returning soon.
