Surf Hotel in Buena Vista, CO

A few weekends ago, the husband and I took a little trip – sans the Tombros – to Buena Vista, CO. I’ve long been a fan of Beuna Vista – it has mountains and water. Is there a better combo? But I will say that BV is the best in the summer! WE went late September and the town was already shutting down for the winter. We still, however, had a great time.

Having been to Buena Vista a few times, but never spending the night, we both jumped at the chance to stay at the Surf Hotel. Since we were taking Roxann with us, we booked a room in one of their chalets. Guys, it is so beautiful! I always think a trip is a bit more fun when you love the hotel so much, you don’t want to leave.

I will say I was surprised to see that our bed was up some legit stairs. I wasn’t the one who booked the room, but in my prime, I was a bit nervous going up and down the ladder – as cool as it was. Still, there was something neat about waking up in a loft…


One of my favorite ways to books hotels is through This isn’t sponsored, it’s just something I always check whenever we’re looking to book a hotel. I usually also look at the hotel website too to see if there are any incentives to book directly through them; but generally I’ve found better deals going through, plus they have a loyalty incentive.

And while we didn’t stay in the main part of the hotel, it’s just as beautiful!
