You are invited to enjoy your vacation or trip to this wonderful vacation area in this immaculate and very spacious newly remodeled Colorado house with spectacular panoramic views of the Front Range, Pikes Peak and the United States Air Force Academy. This custom large three-bedroom house provides comfortable, high-end accommodations for six people. The large deck facing the mountains is the perfect place for enjoying the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, watching the amazing hummingbirds in the summer, taking in the awesome view of Pikes Peak, barbecuing, riding the exercise bike, soaking in the hot tub under starlit skies (spring, summer, fall or winter), or just sitting on the porch swing enjoying the fresh mountain air and tall pines on the private one-acre treed lot. You might even see a few deer coming up the driveway and through the forest area surrounding the house. The kids will love the play house nestled in the trees. Since the house is less than three miles from I-25, it is stress free to be on your way to the Air Force Academy, Denver, Colorado Springs or the mountains to experience all the wonderful area attractions.
The open concept, exceptionally large rooms are perfect for enjoying time together in front of the gas fireplace, playing games, watching television, and cooking and enjoying meals together in the kitchen/dining room area (easily seats 12) or on the deck. The bedrooms are large and all have living areas for private time. The third bedroom even has a Relax-the-Back chair. If someone needs to work, there is a comfortable, large office and WIFI is free and available 24 x 7. All linens are provided as well as a newly remodeled and convenient laundry room. If you have special little ones, a Pack & Play is available and there is plenty of room for the inflatable mattress in the third bedroom if you need an extra bed for a child.
The kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless steel appliances and all the conveniences of home. The lights will be on and there will be coffee, tea and chocolates ready for you upon arrival.
When we moved here from Minneapolis in 2009, we could hardly believe we found the perfect house in a quiet, private area nestled among tall pines with such spectacular views of the Front Range, Pikes Peak and the Air Force Academy. The house had a WOW effect on us, and it continues to have the same effect on everyone who visits.
Because of the high elevation (7500 ft.), forested area, and the wonderful mountain breezes, air conditioning is seldom needed, but the house now has central air-conditioning (September 2016) for those especially warm summer days.
We feel confident that you will enjoy your time in this newly listed (March 2014) vacation home and look forward to meeting you and sharing this wonderful Colorado-style house with you. It is truly our wish that your time in this area will be a blessing and a wonderful memory.

Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs: For years we vacationed in this area, visiting our children who loved Colorado and moved here. We fell in love with this area, too, and decided to move here from Minneapolis in 2009. We searched for a Colorado-style house in the forest that would have a wonderful view of the mountains, large rooms, high ceilings, and an open concept kitchen, dining and living room area. This house met all the criteria as well as location. . . location. . . location. This house makes you feel like you are always on vacation!! We continue to be amazed at the beauty of the views from this house every single day of every season.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We could hardly believe we found the perfect house in a quiet, private area nestled among tall pines with such spectacular views of the Front Range, Pikes Peak and the Air Force Academy. The house had a WOW effect on us, and it has the same effect on everyone who visits.
