Area Adventures

Buena Vista Adventures

Located on the bank of the Arkansas River in beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado, we are your family’s home base to experiencing everything great in Colorado. We are ideally situated to enjoy the best that Colorado’s outdoors can offer; such as private access to Gold medal fishing just steps from our covered patio, some of the best whitewater rafting and kayaking in Colorado, the biggest mountains in the state for hiking, biking, and rock climbing or just soaking in hot springs or sightseeing. You will be stoked about how many things to do there are in Buena Vista!

Historic Buena Vista & Salida offer shopping and restaurants, while St. Elmo is the epitome of an “old-west” ghost town! After a round of golf, nothing feels better than an afternoon at the hot springs and spa. Of course, the Rocky Mountains are the home of some of the best winter activities. Just minutes away, enjoy skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.

Winter in the mountains

And don’t forget winter! Our low winter rates are the perfect excuse to get away for a long weekend. Spend a day skiing at Monarch Ski Area or Cooper Mountain and then relax in our covered hot tub. Although we are located at 8,000 feet above seal level, we have a very unique climate. We are considered a high alpine desert, and we do not get the snow and cold that much of Colorado’s High Country experiences. So while it may be snowing in other parts of Colorado, chances are it might be sunny and warm in Buena Vista!
