About Jeanette Van Wicklen
We're from Spicewood, Tx. (just outside of Austin) I'm an Interior Designer and my husband is a Family Dentist. We're parents and grandparents! Our family loves the great outdoors and we wanted a place to experience the many amenities here all year round. We also love to share our cabin with our renters so that they can also experience the amazing beauty of this area!
Jeanette Van Wicklen purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Jeanette Van Wicklen chose Buena Vista
We chose BV because of it's amazing central CO locale and because the climate here beckons us to be outdoors all year round. My husband is also an avid Enduro dirt bike rider and loves the many public trails in this area of Colorado. The people are friendly and the town is quaint, charming and full of mining history. The town has a "boho vibe" and is very unpretentious and we like that laid back spirit. We fell in love with this house when we first saw it because of it's unique details, the pretty summer garden and the amazing views all around the property. BV is located in what they call the 'banana belt' and therefore has many sunny days, yet we experience all 4 seasons here in all it's beauty! We also love in the summer, to day trip over to Aspen via the Independence Pass! (in my opinion, one of the most gorgeous drives I've ever been on)
What makes this Cabin unique
The location of this house is awesome, whether you want to drive, bicycle or go for a scenic walk. The Arkansas River is conveniently close by for white water rafting, fly fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking. The charming & friendly City Market grocery is very close too. The town has many beautiful hiking trails and biking trails and has wonderful streets for cruiser bikes. The central CO locale is great for day trips to Salida, Aspen, Twin Lakes, Leadville, Minturn, Vail, Breckenridge, Gunnison, Crested Butte, Monarch Mountain, St. Elmo's, etc. (too many possibilities!) Because of our great climate here, you can enjoy amenities here year round. Did you know they film the Prospector's show here too? (and be sure to check out the outdoors Mineral and Gem show here each August, it's awesome!) And the summertime drive-in movie theater & the numerous outdoor concerts at South Main!

Wonderful weekend getaway!
This property was perfect for our family getaway. Beautiful, tastefully decorated, clean, very safe yard for kids, completely equipped kitchen for cooking and great spaces for hanging out indoors and in the backyard. Within walking distance to the park, natural grocery store and restaurants. Plenty of parking, if needed, as well. So many extra, thought out details like provided soaps and lotion, extra towels and the best selection of kitchen accessories I’ve ever seen at a vrbo. We are already planning to return again!
Thanks so much Jacquilyn for your kind review!
We appreciate your business so much and also the time you took, to write a review.
We do hope you'll return again soon.
Annual Girls Trip
The pictures don't do this house justice. The property is so great. Comfortable, safe and decorated wonderfully. Bedding was great and beds very comfortable. Love the fire pit! We cooked a lot of our meals and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We loved the location just off Main St and going to "South Main" is a must. We were very close to great hiking and restaurants. The Surf Hotel restaurant on the river is a must! We did have to communicate with the owner at check in due to a mix up. The owner was very apologetic & gracious and quick to fix the issue. We would defiantly stay again. Book it, you will love it too!
HI Shana! Thanks so much for the kind review......you're a doll for understanding the mix up. Lordy! Anyways, we're so happy your stay turned out to be wonderful. LOVE the Surf Hotel restaurant...the ambience there is so beautiful and chic yet casual. We hope you'll come back again soon.....happy Fall to you and yours. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review....
Comfortable, Clean, our new favorite rental property in BV, CO!
House was just as it was described in the listing. Clean and comfortable accommodations for our two families (8 people). Excellent parking for two vehicles and two small trailers. Quiet neighborhood.
Thanks Brianne for taking the time to leave us a nice review.
We hope you'll visit again soon!
Wishing you the best and thank you again so much,
What a great place for 4 adults and 4 children to relax in and hang out and have some amazing family
Great place to go and relax and enjoy some great family time and hang out in the backyard. The place was done up awesome. Thanks for the great time and great family memories that were made.
We loved the house. It was well equipped and conveniently located for all our activity. We would definitely stay there again.
Great time for July 4th
We were able to walk to the July 4th parade. We had two families of 4 with all kids under 6 yrs old. I would consider bringing a baby gate to put at the bottom of the stairs (we did). The yard has a gate and is well contained to let children play and run around out of site. No complaints and recommended.
We are ideally located in town , close to shopping and great restaurants....also very close to the trendy South Main area. Salida is a convenient 20 min drive to find more shopping and a movie theatre as well as great restaurants. Monarch Mountain ski lodge is an ez 40 mile scenic drive drive.
