Why stop enjoying nature’s magnificence when you get “home” from your day’s excursions? Our brand-new Victorian flat is a cozy homage to BV’s surrounding natural beauty and Victorian roots. With private balcony views of Mt. Princeton, Harvard and Yale, we’re located in South Main, an acclaimed new urbanist neighborhood. Just a short stroll from the river/trails, parks, South Main Square & downtown. Book now and mountain solitude, outdoor adventure, hip eateries & shops will all be steps away!

Our Victorian Flat is one of five, private guest apartments in our newly constructed Riverpath Pensione - a European style, family run guest house inspired by favorite memories from our own travels. We thoughtfully designed each apartment from the ground up based on the overwhelming success of our nearby “River Trail Retreat” apartment and our adjacent “Tiny Treat” tiny house. Our new town logo, “Surround yourself with what matters,” feels more critical than ever these days, and we have carefully designed the Victorian Flat to do just that: not only is its location ideal for accessing all area attractions, but we have meticulously outfitted the interior with everything you need for your getaway! Whether you’re a solo traveler or a couple; whether you’re seeking a cozy respite from the daily grind, a romantic getaway, or simply an enjoyable space to return “home” to after a day of action packed outdoor adventures, we’ve created this space with you in mind. Located in the nationally acclaimed South Main neighborhood, our 210 sq ft, second story flat is well equipped with a kitchenette, full bath, private bed nook with queen bed, living room with velvet settee sofa, dining/workspace, and private balcony. The Riverpath Pensione’s exterior harkens back to a warm, welcoming Italianate Victorian estate with mediterranean inspired landscaping using plants appropriate to our high altitude mountain climate. Locals refer to our Pensione as “the Speed Bump,” since passing cars tend to slow down to admire it! The Flat’s interior is reminiscent of a cozy, richly hued, Victorian apartment. Wi-Fi is included and while furniture, linens, TV, and DVD are all brand new, we have also lovingly incorporated vintage Victorian treasures throughout the space. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable just message us - our capable Co-Host’s family lives on site and we’re only a block away and happy to help!

Before we tell you more about the amazing details of our space, please note that we are located in a growing community & there may be construction noise in the neighborhood during daytime hours.

Kitchenette -- silverware/drinkware/dishes, microwave, mini fridge/freezer, coffee maker (with complimentary coffee sample from the local roastery), and a toaster oven large enough to bake a personal pizza. We even found a corkscrew from the mid-1800s you can use to decant your favorite spirits! We have been pleasantly surprised by how well the kitchenette accommodates serving several pre-made meals (i.e., made at home and brought with us), for our family of four! The kitchenette does NOT have a sink, stove, oven or cookware and is not set up for cooking.

Living Room – Brand new 43" Roku TV/Blu-ray DVD player, classic nature films on DVD and an extensive collection of both antique Victorian and contemporary natural history books to peruse for your “armchair” nature explorations! Our library also includes our favorite local guidebooks/maps for hiking, bird watching and wildflower viewing. Decadent, tufted velvet settee sofa with plenty of comfy throw pillows so you can really snuggle in for a good read or flick. Whimsical storage ottoman to help you kick back and relax, and provide extra seating. Charming, three-tiered window treatments let in lots of natural light while providing privacy, and include blackout shades typical of the period to help you sleep in or enjoy a lazy afternoon of screentime (not so typical of the period).

Bed Nook -- Medium-firm memory foam queen platform bed with down alternative comforter and luxurious organic cotton bedding, in a cozy private nook with built-in shelving to store your belongings and a few of our antique treasures, built-in adjustable reading lights for two, a pillow-side niche with USB outlet, and luxe velvet blackout curtains to enclose the nook for privacy and so you can sleep in. ***Please note that the bed is contained in a 3 sided nook and may not be suitable for those concerned with accessibility.***

Bathroom -- Gorgeous tulip pattern marble mosaic tile floor, Victorian wash basin-inspired vessel sink on an upcycled vintage birdseye maple dresser, replica Victorian train rack, luxurious essential oil body wash/shampoo for him and her, lavishly soft textured organic cotton bath linens, organic Turkish peshtemal towels for trips to local beaches (yes we have beaches!) or the hot springs, hair dryer and plenty of storage for your personal items.

Dining -- Swivel barstools recalling the Victorian era’s industrial revolution provide comfortable seating for two at our parquet walnut wood countertop, adorned by two vintage prints
of Adolphe Millot’s superb biological illustrations ca. 1897-1904.

Balcony -- Indulge yourself in the Victorian custom of the “Change of Air” (touted as the precursor to modern tourism) by savoring sweeping pink sunrise views of Mt. Princeton, Harvard and Yale, while sipping your morning coffee (sample of local roast provided), or gorgeous evening sunsets with a glass of wine, all from a Victorian bistro set for two on your own private balcony.

Decor -- For over a year (and continuing indefinitely) we have searched high and low, locally and across the pond and beyond, and hand selected everything you see just for your use and enjoyment! Our decor is inspired by Buena Vista’s (founded in 1879) Victorian era roots. During this era the great Westward Expansion enticed prominent 19th century artists like Albert Bierstadt (whose ca. 1866 painting of Colorado’s Mt. Evans is featured prominently in our Flat) to document the magnificent natural landscapes of the west. Bierstadt himself passed through our area as evidenced by our familiar landscape in his 1857 painting “Surveyors Wagon in the Rockies.” While BV itself was a railroad and mining town, the surrounding natural beauty was a draw for Victorian “Change of Air” retreats at nearby spots like Interlaken Resort (we highly recommend the drive and easy hike to see its abandoned relics) and Mt. Princeton Hot Springs (established in 1879 and still going strong). While Victorians were out seeking fresh air for health reasons, this era also witnessed an explosive interest in the natural world (both real and imagined). We had great fun seeking out the collection of Victorian artwork and books dedicated to this fascination with nature that adorn our flat. We’re thrilled to share a timeless mutual enthusiasm for nature and the great outdoors with our guests!

Recreation Access - Hiking, biking, bouldering, trail running, fishing, wildlife viewing, kayaking, rafting and SUPing are mere steps away. The apartment is about a block from the Buena Vista Boulder Garden, which provides rock climbing features for all levels from children to advanced. Adjacent to the Boulder Garden are several access points to the stunning Arkansas River trail. To access the Midland Mountain trail system and thousands of acres of BLM land, take a pleasant, short jaunt north along the river trail. Within a five-minute walk you can also enjoy Buena Vista's municipal tennis courts, disc golf course, pump track, new skate park and a brand new playground. Cottonwood and Mt Princeton hot spring resorts are each a twenty minute drive and Monarch and Ski Cooper ski resorts are both less than an hour away.

Dining and Shopping Access - Within a five-minute walk you can enjoy a riverside mouth-watering gourmet meal featuring local farm to table fare at Wesley and Rose (inside the new Surf Hotel), pizza and an IPA from the Eddyline Brewpub, an espresso and to-die-for cup of homemade gelato at the Midland Stop, or the weekly farmers market (June through early October) and free summertime concerts at the South Main square. You will also find Rock Run Gallery, Sundance, and Black Burro Bikes: retailers collectively offering gifts, clothing, handmade leather goods and shoes, bicycle rentals, and fine art. Main Street, with its myriad shops and restaurants is a short 10 min walk away.

This cozy space is not just another second home overseen by a property management company. When you stay with us, you are in your own private residence lovingly designed and built by us. You are supporting our small family business, our co-host’s family and our housekeeper’s family. Together our families care for and maintain the property ourselves, which means close attention to detail and a very clean and tidy home away from home atmosphere. We use eco and people friendly cleaning products wherever possible. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, our capable Co-Host’s family lives on site and we live about a block away and are happy to help.

Inquiries for this special new property began rolling in as soon as construction began, so contact us now to reserve your own Victorian “Change of Air” getaway! If the Victorian Flat is already booked on your travel dates, please check out our other equally enticing properties. We look forward to your visit!

Kde se ubytování nachází

Buena Vista, Colorado, Spojené státy

South Main is an acclaimed New Urbanist neighborhood adjacent to the Arkansas River at the edge of downtown Buena Vista. What does that mean? Strict architectural standards and quaint landscaping throughout the neighborhood provide an inviting atmosphere for tourists and residents alike. Each home is painstakingly custom, developed through close partnership between the homeowner and architect. Large front porches and balconies throughout the neighborhood facilitate natural interaction between residents and passersby. Mixed-use architecture includes single family residences, row houses, “live-work” buildings, apartments, businesses, a hotel, and rental properties (this listing, for example). Public spaces are thoughtfully designed for people, not cars. Narrow streets slow traffic and are pedestrian and bike friendly. All this translates to a vibrant neighborhood where people live, work, visit, shop, eat and play. Our unique little corner of the neighborhood generates a lot of intrigue between the grand delight of the Riverpath Pensione, and curiosity about our adjacent “Tiny Treat” with its colorful hues and custom tile stairs depicting its poppy garden, and the nearby mountains and river.

Beyond the architectural beauty of South Main, the people here are great too. Residents are about 50/50 full-time vs. part-time, and demographics range from retirees to young families with small children, and everything in between. The vibe is surreally pleasant, almost Rockwellian. We often hear comments questioning the authenticity of this special spot. No, we’re not filming another “Truman Show,” or “Pleasantville.” Summer visitors often ask what it’s like to live in a neighborhood with so many tourists and vacation renters. My wife tells them, “Are you kidding? Everyone here is enjoying themselves. They’re on vacation, they’re getting married, going to a wedding or family reunion.” You know the expression, “Find a happy place?” You’ve found it!

Greetings! I’m JJ and my wife is Sarah. I grew up in Boulder, CO and Sarah grew up in Grandview Heights, OH. We met in college at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After Sarah finished graduate school at the University of Washington, we moved to Santa Barbara, CA, where we lived for several years until I got a great job offer to help build South Main, an acclaimed new urbanist community here in Buena Vista. We moved to Buena Vista in 2007 and built our dream home here in 2009. Sarah worked from home as a contractor for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on projects in Santa Barbara, Washington, D.C., the Florida Keys and American Samoa, until we had our second child. We have seen a lot of positive changes in our town in the last ten years and we know a lot of the folks who have played a significant role in its revitalization, including restaurateurs and shop owners. That gives us useful insights on guest recommendations for everything from fishing guides, to rafting outfitters, to shopping and dining. We love to travel and have ventured all over the world. We enjoy rock climbing, camping, hiking, SUP’ing, gardening, and cooking. My wife likes to joke that we’re in Colorado a few million years too late, as we both love the ocean too, but with family in California, Mexico and Hawaii we get some good ocean time in with activities like sailing, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving. Our latest adventure is homeschooling our children, and the vacation rental plays a small role in that too with the kids eager to help out with specific tasks like making sure the local maps are laid out for new guests. We’ve really enjoyed being hosts and have met some great guests. We love meeting people from all over the country and the world and we look forward to connecting with you as a host or traveler. We will do our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible, or will strive to be great guests, as appropriate.
