Vista Court Cabins & Lodge is your mountain getaway in the Upper Arkansas River Valley. With the San Isabel National Forest to the east and the Sawatch Mountain Range to the west, our small town lodging is a great base for the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness area, which holds 14 mountains over 14,000 feet in elevation, known as 14ers.
Nestled against the base of the Continental Divide, our historic log cabins, cozy lodge rooms, and spacious cottages invite you to kick off your shoes, settle in, and slow your rhythm to the pace of the mountains. Enjoy restful sleep in our cozy beds and breathe in the clean mountain air.
Our vacation cabins in Buena Vista, Colorado, are only a short stroll from our common areas; where you’ll find indoor and outdoor games, the lounge located in the office to relax with a cup of coffee and read a book, a fire ring with a view of Mt. Princeton, or a chaise lounge to take a nap.
It’s up to you how connected or removed you’d like to be during your stay. All accommodations have Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV with cable. If you prefer to unplug completely, the natural quiet of the area will oblige. Our facility offers a true retreat from the bustle of daily life, not to mention countless opportunities for outdoor adventure close by.
The surrounding area is abundant with rivers, lakes, vistas, and trails, including the Colorado Trail, which runs from near Denver to Durango. In the warm season, spend a day hiking, biking, paddling, swimming, or whitewater rafting. Winter activities run the gamut, from alpine or Nordic skiing to fat-tire biking, soaking in the hot springs, dog sledding, or snowmobiling. There’s something for every kind of outdoor enthusiast and nature lover.
Just 2 minutes away from cabins is the heart of the town of Buena Vista with shopping, restaurants, and a variety of attractions and seasonal festivals. The cities of Salida, Poncha Springs, and Leadville are less than an hour away.
Whether you’d like a short break or a place to hang your hat for a longer period, we’re happy to offer year-round lodging. Our self-catering cabins are an ideal option for families, individuals, or couples looking for a unique Colorado getaway.
Vista Court Cabins & Lodge is not a resort. It’s an authentic Colorado experience; the road less traveled. We invite you to take it. Come celebrate, relax, and adventure. It’s our pleasure to share our mountain home with you.
