Peak Vista is perfect for family and multi-family vacations, corporate retreats, small weddings, family reunions, and other special occasions. Lounge on the lovely wraparound covered porch in which to enjoy the peace and serenity of the area. As you enter Peak Vista, you are welcomed by a magnificent hard wood stairway with an upright piano. Quiet, High Quality, Peaceful, are yours to Enjoy


About Peak Vista: On the lower level a walk out basement has a very large living and recreation area including a new billiards table, foosball, wet bar, entertainment center with board games, extra bedroom, and a large full bathroom. This very large comfy room is great for projects, games, or watching your favorite movie.

The upper level of Peak Vista hosts four bedrooms and two bathrooms, each equipped with high thread count bedding and Egyptian cotton towels. You will enjoy the most comfortable memory foam beds in all of Colorado Springs! These include a king in the master, queen beds in two rooms, and two twins in the forth bedroom. The house sleeps 11 easily that is just counting beds! We can provide more sleeping arrangements for your guests, just ask us! Because of the private cul-de-sac, there is a lot of space for parking.

More Details: Jetted tub in the master bathroom with views of the mountains, hiking trails out the back door to a pond for fishing (1mi), and more all level hiking nearby. You will love to relax in the air conditioning! We have tetherball, basketball, and a playground with plenty of room to play.
