Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our cottage is perfectly located in the small mountain town of Buena Vista. It’s a short distance to downtown, South Main, and the gold medal fishing and world class whitewater on the Arkansas River. However, it has a quiet secluded feel and easy access to the hot springs that are just outside of town. You’ll love our cottage because of the well kept stylish interior, the park-like outdoor space, and great views. The cottage is cozy, so it's an ideal base camp for couples and solo adventurers.

The space
Our cottage is a stylish and cozy cabin that has had many updates and renovations over the years. We recently painted, put in new hard flooring, front door, and installed a toasty gas wood stove among other updates. The interior is comparible in size to the typical hotel suite. So it’s not large but sized just right for individuals or couples, and families with a baby in a travel crib also work well.

There is one main room with a separate bathroom and kitchenette with a small fridge, two electric burners, toaster oven, coffee maker, enamelware, etc. It’s not a large kitchen but has all the items you would need to cook. There is also a gas grill and simple patio furniture on the deck. The bathroom is stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash from Alpine Provisions as well as soft Company Store linens. The bed is hand built with a super comfy deep queen mattress and Pendleton bedding. There are pieces from local Rock Run Gallery and black and white photography by the owner throughout the space. We also have WiFi and a smart Roku TV so you can watch your apps like Netflix, Amazon, etc. All the toiletries and cleaning supplies in our cottage are packaged without any single-use plastic.

BV has a fairly mild climate. Summertime temps average in the 70s. During heatwaves, typically in mid-June, temps can rise for short periods throughout the day, but due to the dryness and nighttime temps back down in the 40’s it always feels comfortable. In July and August, there is a cool rain nearly every afternoon as well. Therefore, it is extremely rare to find a home here with an air conditioner, including ours. No guest has ever requested A/C, but they have used the heat in the summer from time to time. We do provide a fan and humidifier and the cottage is in the shade of an absolutely giant willow tree.

Winter Tree Cottage is a small house with a big welcome!

Where you’ll be

Buena Vista, Colorado, United States

Our property is on the town limits just off of West Main Street. So you have great views, a secluded feel, but you are still close to downtown, South Main, the river, and the hot springs that are just outside of town.

I am an artist and local fly fishing guide. You can book a trip with me through Ark Anglers by contacting them directly or simply let me know and I can get you on my schedule. With trips geared for the seasoned angler to the complete beginner, I float or wade the Arkansas River as well as fish alpine lakes and backcountry streams. I have been guiding the Arkansas since 2001 and have guided fly fishing exclusively since 2016. I also have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design and am alumni of L'Ecole des Arts in Lacoste, France. I hope to live as a thoughtful artist and a patient guide.

During your stay

In most cases, we will be available if any pressing need arises. A quick message through the AirBNB app is the preferred way to get a hold of us. You may call us in case of emergency.

We live on the property but we often don’t see our guests. We don’t mind interacting with guests, but we really try to give you your complete privacy whenever possible. There is a private parking space and separate access to the property just for guests. The entire cottage, deck and yard in front of the cottage is dedicated just for you.

We have two dogs you will see in our yard but they are separated from the guest area. Please do not pet them and stay within the boundaries described in the house manual and you should not have contact with them. They wear bark limiters when guests are present.
