About Us

BDS_0290-copy-scaled About Us

My name is Renee Graner and I am the Broker- Owner/Property Manager of Escape to the Mountains Property Management, LLC dba Buena Vista Rentals.

I am a Kansas native but have called Colorado my home for over half my life.  Buena Vista has been home to my family and me since 2000 when we moved here to own and operate Mt. Princeton RV Park.  Within a year, we had added a couple of long-term rentals as well as 3 vacation cabins. My husband and I also own and operate Antero Septic Co. and Baby Does Studios.  My photography business has morphed into photographing homes as well as

a house photographer for the National Western Stock Show in Denver.  My kids have all graduated from Buena Vista High School and still live and work in Colorado.

Prior to moving to the mountains, we lived in Colorado Springs for many years and when we had free time, Buena Vista was our Escape to the Mountains which is how we ended up in this great little mountain town.  We’ve not regretted relocating here for a minute!

Our lives are pretty full with our businesses, our grown children and now three grandchildren, our horses and other four-legged critters.   Living in the Arkansas Valley allows for hiking, biking, mountain-climbing, kayaking and rafting, and a dozen of other activities whenever we have a chance.
