  • Perfect Family Gathering for Christmas and New Years!

    "Spending the Christmas Holidays at Merrywood Manor in Colorado Springs was perfect. The place is very elegant yet very warm and comfortable. The owners had it decorated beautifully and tastefully for Christmas along with a Christmas tree, garland, outside lights, a small village, and wreaths. With sixteen people, none of us ever felt crowded with three living areas for conversation and two large dining areas. The well-equipped large kitchen was a dream with plenty of counter space and a butler's pantry. The bedrooms were all very comfortable. At first I had some reservations about the downstairs apartment envisioning it as merely a basement room, but it was lovely and comfortable. The stairwell leading to it was nicely carpeted and lighted with nice paintings - very well incorporated into the rest of the house. One did not have the feel they were in the basement. While there, we saw many deer and other wildlife in the area. Being hikers, we made several trips on foot to the Broadmoor Hotel and made a point of eating at the Golden Bee. Terry, the landlord, was always easy to reach and helped us with every request. He gave us directions to the perfect spot for our kids to sled down some snow covered hills, and was there to shovel the snow from the driveway. While in Colorado Springs, we visited Manitou Springs, Old Town Colorado, Garden of the Gods, Focus on the Family, and the zoo. After being away for the day, it was always a welcome sight to get back "home" to the warmth of Merrywood. If we ever have the opportunity to be in Colorado Springs, we would try to stay there again. Terry and Diane were both so very nice to us."

    "My wife and I spent several days at Eagle's Nest cabin. It was well furnished and comfortable. The scenery was amazing. We enjoyed the quiet and solitude."

  • Peaceful Perfectly Describes This Cabin

    "We shared our weekend away with another family, for a total of 4 adults and 2 children. Relaxing is the word I would use to describe our experience. There was plenty of room for lounging on the sectional sofa, plus the other couch on the other side of the room. The kids played upstairs, which was nice to have that separate space for them and for us to have some intentional conversation. The dining room table is tucked away separately from where the kids were sleeping earlier in the evening so that we could play cards, laugh and not wake the kids. The kitchen had every amenity for our meals. One advantage is that there were not any immediate distractions right outside the door such as in the larger resort area. We walked in the woods and discovered a labyrinth in the midst of interesting, old trees. The kids loved playing pirate ship on the fallen trees. We enjoyed being "unplugged" without wifi to avoid the usual distractions. We also enjoyed having the TV and movies to watch. We look forward to our next visit! We love Fairplay and Alma, and Salida is one of our favorite places in the state. The best part of this location is not having to utilize I70. I was imagining what a great place this would be for a girls get away because of how conducive it would be for hanging out, quality time and comfort. I liked how you can have a quiet, isolated time OR you can head over to Breckenridge, Salida or Buena Vista too. Summer will be our next visit, as we can explore the little historic village SouthPark and enjoy one of the local fesivals."

  • Quick Stay

    "Despite the last minute reservation, the owner was extremely accomodating. The condo was clean, kitchen was fully stocked, and the addition of the air bed was exactly what we needed for the night. The views from this area are amazing as well. It is a short walk away from the local brewery and other downtown options. We snowshoed Mt. Elbert the next morning and it was less than 30 minutes from the trailhead. I will be back more than likely this summer for a longer stay in this area."
