                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Hello! Emily here, to tell you about my home in Colorado Springs. I am a Colorado native. I grew up in Denver and went to the Unversity of Northern Colorado. My husband grew up in Colorado Springs and is a physician here in town. My father's family settled in southern Colorado in the 1760's--so our roots run deep in this part of the country. Colorado Springs has so much to offer the traveler. The history of the area is like no other. From the gold mining towns to the railroads, to the Native Americans and to Pikes Peak--this town tells the story of the Old West. There is so much to do and see here! The city has great museums, shops, galleries, restaurants, brew pubs and night clubs. Five minutes from our door are some unbelievably amazing mountain trails for any level of hiker. We take pride in our collection of trail maps and guides that will help you plan your day. Garden of the Gods is a short drive to some of the most magnificent rock formations one can ever see. We love living here and take advantage of year round outdoor activities. Breckenridge ski area is a beautiful two hour drive away. My husband even cross country skis around our neighborhood! We bike and hike year round. We have deer, foxes and an occasional bear that visit our property. I am looking forward to talking to you about your stay at the Blue Gate.

                  Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                  We are perfectly situated near the downtown area but you feel like you are in the mountains. If you are attending a conference at the Broadmoor you are literally around the corner from the resort and conference center. We are at the gateway to two beautiful canyons--North and South Cheyenne Canyon. The view from our deck constantly amazes us with it's beauty. The weather is quite mild and we get more sunny days that San Diego!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  We have been told we have the best view in the area. It amazes us every day. This is a place where you can put your feet up and read a book while gazing at the mountain range. This is a place where you can enjoy the many outdoor activities that the Colorado front range has to offer. You can experience the luxurious feel of the Broadmoor Resort and take advantage of it's fine restaurants and lovely grounds but not break the bank.
