“Had a GREAT time!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

My friend and I visited Buena Vista to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We stayed at Pinon Court Cabins. Clean, Quaint, Affordable, and perfect for what we needed. We loved sitting on the front porch visiting with our neighbors on the rustic wooden chairs. Jackie, the owner could not have been more freindly and helpful when I made reservations online. Once we arrived, she greeted us with open arms. Jackie is a HOOT! Funny, a great hostess, and so friendly to all of the Pinon Court guests. She was very helpful in suggesting popular attractions and places to eat. She knows the area well and her input was greatly appreciated! We will definitely stay at Pinon Court Cabins again. Jackie and her husband are excellent hosts. They were part of what made our Buena Vista trip so enjoyable! Go visit them! You'll love the experience!

This is our second time staying at Pinon Court Cabins, and again, the experience exceeded our expectations. The cabins are clean and comfy. They are close to everything and it is great to have an outside area to sit and relax. Free WiFi.

Jackie and Phil do everything they can to ensure their guests have a relaxing and comfortable stay. They went above and beyond what they needed to do. They have really become great friends, and the hospitality they offer is beyond any hotel chain we have ever stayed at.

The price is great, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen units have everything we needed. We love the unique cabins and recognize the enormous effort that Phil and Jackie put into maintaining the property.

We would absolutely recommend this as the best place to stay in Buena Vista.

We just returned from a weekend at Pinon court cabins. Very cute and quaint......a step back in time!
Our cabin had all the amenities including kitchen, coffee maker, bar-b-que- availability, wi-fi, and covered carport. Your hosts, Jackie and Phillip were fun, accommodating, and delightful! They were extremely helpful in suggesting eateries and places to visit. If you are looking for a modern, sterile hotel, this is not the place for you. We totally enjoyed the quaintness and would definitely return. Btw, Jackie, we loved the Cottonwood canyon drive you suggested.

Best Wishes
Janie & John

Room Tip: We stayed in room #6 and would request it again. It is away from the street.

Pinon court cabins are charming small cabins. Very clean and comfortable. Jackie & Phil are awesome hosts. In an era were customer service is lacking they excel. They are knowledgable about the area and had great suggestions for places to visit, eat and things to do. Jacke and Phil make you feel like your part of a family. If you happened to go out on a hiking trip and didn't come back for some reason (i.e: you were hurt) they would've sent someone looking for you because they would have noticed you were missing. They are very personable hosts. Some people may not like that and would be better off at a hotel where they wouldn't know you by name unless you had your credit card with you or care if you came up missing.

Yes the cabins are small, but if you're more of an outdoorsy type person and need a place to hang your hat, sleep, shower and cook a meal (if you want). This is the place for you. I was personally impressed with the nice log benches they had for you to sit outside on the patio to enjoy the fresh air.

I love to grill in the summer. The accessibility to grills, both gas and charcoal was fabulous.

If you are someone who wants a flat screen tv and to be catered to I would recommend a fancy hotel. The personable experience of the Pinon court cabins is not for you. For the more adventurous I would highly recommend it.

Not what I expected after reading all the great reviews; overpriced for what is is; looks like a fixer upper that was never finished; bed was uncomfortable; a little shabby.The location is good, within walking distance of the main part of town.

We are sorry you did not find the bed comfortable. This year alone we have hosted hundreds of guests and have had only one complaint about a bed. The Goldielocks syndrome, "This bed is too soft, this bed is too hard..." is always a concern for hotel owners and nearly impossible to address when one guest out of hundreds finds a bed uncomfortable. We are in business to provide a good experience for our guests and regret that you did not have that. We urge people to read all of our reviews when deciding where to stay in Buena Vista.

Small, cramped, not so clean, old and just odd. My pictures says it all. Pluses were close to the highway and good A/C. Would suggest you view a cabin before you rent. Owners seemed nice and handled the reservations well. Discount for cash payments.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else in town!!

Well, this review proves the old adage, "You can't please everybody all the time". We are sorry the Plumbergs were disappointed with their cabin. Had they told us when they checked in, we would have happily refunded their money. The cabins were built in 1938 and when the reservation was made they were on line looking at the photos on our web site and chose that cabin. Apparently they took exception to the older model TV, but it works and at least we have TV. We work hard to keep the rust in the shower painted, but it is not always possible when the cabin is continually occupied for 4 months. The cabin sits behind our house and the view they didn't show is of Mt. Princeton. Bottom line is that the guests were looking for a Super 8 or Best Western experience where there are no patios, grilling areas or ability to meet your neighbors. This review actually is appreciated by us as it will discourage the potential guest who wants a brand name motel, but not the price they charge. It's rare, as our other reviews show, for guests to take exception to the small, rustic Colorado mountain town experience we try to provide.

We had a great time hiking and exploring the Buena Vista area, and we are glad we stayed at Pinon Court Cabins. Jackie and Phil are a very friendly couple, and they run a nice business. They treated us very well. We brought our dog and we all felt at home at Pinon Court Cabins... The cabins are small and older, but ours was clean and comfortable. I do not think cabin 11 (the one we stayed in) had a designated covered parking place, but the owners made sure we had one for my wife's car, and since we were traveling with two vehicles, they had me park my 4x4 in their own spot and Phil parked his truck in the street. Pretty nice! We stayed for a week and our neighbors were nice and friendly, and everyone seemed comfortable and happy. You can always stay at a chain hotel, but in a small town like Buena Vista, I would recommend a "mom and pop" place with character and friendly owners who treat you like family. You cannot go wrong staying at Pinon Court.
