About Astrid Ashlynn Ohlberg
My husband and I fell in love with Buena VIsta 5 years ago when we visit renting a vacation rental. We bought our vacation rental quickly after that. We enjoyed fixing up this unique home built in 1899. Now, since we have the opportunity to visit Buena Vista more frequently, we love the climate and kayak, raft and bike.I came to the USA 30 years ago and I have to say I love Colorado and don't see myself moving anywhere else. Sharing our house became quickly our passion and we hope to welcome you to our little vintage home soon.
Astrid Ashlynn Ohlberg purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Astrid Ashlynn Ohlberg chose Buena Vista
This home has many unique vintage/victorian accents we restored. You still will find the old water pump in front of the house, the original iron fence is in place, some windows still have the old single pains, the cooking stove is approx 60 years old, the bathroom vanity is made from wood in unique patterns, many walls had the plaster removed to exposed the original brick walls, the front door is the original about 120 years old and the glass stain window above the front door is handcrafted. Enormous trees are still on this property. The back deck, recently added, is one of my guests' favorite. It has direct access from the kitchen through French doors. The infra-red outdoor sauna is a welcomed resting place after a day out in the nature, reviving your spirits and relaxing your muscles. Your dogs have a great fenced area in the back. The grassy areas on the north lawn are perfect for children's play with a tree swing. Many birds come daily to visit all the bird feeding places and the deer love to stop by.
What makes this Cottage unique
Many guest appreciate the close parameter to downtown shops, restaurants, lake and museum. The Arkansas river is only a short walk away from the house. Although it's located to many local eateries and shops, the area around the house stays quite for your enjoyment. Pick up you comparable to Starbucks coffee and morning snacks right in the neighborhood and relax on our deck with partial view of the mountains and watch the birds coming for a visit.

What a beautiful sanctuary in the heart of a historic BV!!!
From the welcoming cottage exterior to the beautifully modern remodeled interior, this property is a must stay for anybody exploring the Salida/Buena Vista/Leadville area. The hostess, Astrid, is friendly, responsive and has ensured a positive visiting experience by filling the home with little thoughtful touches and amenities. My wife and I travel almost exclusively through VRBO this is on of the best experiences we have enjoyed!
Beautiful, cozy home!
This home was so charming! Astrid did a phenomenal job decorating and making sure everything one could need was accessible. The location to restaurants and shops was ideal, too. I plan on booking another trip to Buena and will definitely stay at this home again!
Thank you, Trevor, for your kind review. You were an excellent guest as well. I appreciate you keeping my place in exceptional clean condition. I hope you come again.
Charming historical house very close to downtown
Our 2 year old son, my husband and I had a wonderful relaxing stay in this charming little house located just 1 block away from downtown BV. This home was very tastefully remodeled and decorated. The kitchen and dining area felt very cozy and we had all the tools we needed to enjoy our homemade meals. We loved using the beautiful vintage stove which worked great. The one level layout of the house allowed our son to run around and play freely while we could easily keep an eye on him. He loved the low level windows to watch the outside activity and 2 big deer who seemed to love hanging out around this neighborhood. The grassy front yard was great to play around. The neighborhood was pleasant and quiet. The elevated deck in the backyard is perfect to enjoy a drink and watch the birds. In our situation with a young kid, we would have appreciated a small railing around it since we had to constantly watch out for a potential fall. This is just a detail though and part of taking care of a toddler.
Astrid was a great host and kept in touch with us during our stay to make sure everything was going well for us.
We highly recommend this place.
Beautiful Victorian Cottage with all the Modern Amenities
My family was visiting for one of our closest friends wedding and we had a amazing time in this cottage. I was baking for the wedding so the double vintage oven came in real handy! We were two blocks from downtown and the babysitter that Astrid provided to us was great! If you want a relaxing stay and a house just blocks away from downtown Buena this is the place for you!
Beautiful, cozy, and clean home located walking distance to shops and restaurants.
We had a wonderful time staying at your cottage. We will definitely be back!
Elegance in downtown Buena Vista
