Recent South Central reviews
"We spent the month of June in this cottage and really enjoyed the location and the large yard. We are full time travelers and have stayed in many vacation rentals. This was one of the best equipped as far as kitchen dishes, pots, pans, paper products, towels, etc. The kitchen is beautiful and a pleasure to use. Everything worked well and we had no issues while we were there. Our small dog loved the big, fenced yard and we ate many meals on the large patio. The owner was easy to communicate with and usually answered questions fairly quickly. The house has two window air conditioners located in each of the bedrooms which were quite necessary during this rather warm month. It would be helpful to have another air conditioner in the living room or the kitchen as those two rooms became very warm as the day progressed. Also, Unitah is a very busy street so it is not the quietest of locations. However the house did shut out most of the noise. Road noise was not uncommon to hear in the bedroom late at night."Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 12, 2014View listing

"We rented the home for one week in July 2015. Dave met us on time and provided a detailed breakdown of the runnings of the house. A really nice touch was the bottle of wine and gift basket full of treats. We were two families of 3 and we had plenty of room. Everything worked well and the garden of the gods club facilities were excellent. We had the pleasure of deer in the backyard on most days and one day a male with 8 points had dinner about 25 feet away. The community is nice and safe and well located to Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. We would definitely stay here again."Guest: Limestone Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 18, 2014View listing
"We loved our stay at Meadowpine! Easy to get to, absolutely peaceful while there. There was plenty of room for our 10 family members as we spent a wonderful time with my USAF Academy daughter. The home was clean and ready for us and any questions I had were answered promptly. Thank you for letting us rent your home!

South Central Travel Tips
Southern Colorado Vacation Rentals Offer Beauty in the Mountains
Southern Colorado is an area that’s full of rugged high desert plains and a collection of up to 14,000-foot peaks, rivers that gush with whitewater rapids during the spring, beautiful red-rock outcroppings, and towering sand dunes that are dwarfed by the mountain range set behind them. South Central Colorado was first explored in 1806, some three years after the U.S. made the Louisiana Purchase. A man named Zebulon Pike led the first scouting expedition to what is now known as Pikes Peak but he never actually climbed the mountain that was eventually named after him.
Southern Colorado is well worth a few days of exploration on your vacation due to the vast wonderland of activities and adventures that you and the entire family can embark upon. Southern Colorado vacation rentals and Southern Colorado vacation homes will place you in the heart of the back country. Here, you can set off on a whitewater rafting journey, shop in the historical towns and cities, bike, hike, mountain climb and much more. Imagine spending your vacation in a Lake George cabin deep in the woods near a fishing stream. This can make for a perfectly relaxing vacation, especially since you are never too far from civilization when you need it.
Southern Colorado vacation rentals are complete with all of the amenities needed for your trip. You can enjoy a luxury cabin complete with as many bedrooms as you choose. There are also full baths, living quarters, spacious kitchens, modern electronics such as big screen televisions, DVD players, radios and more. Many of the rentals also have large patios or wraparound decks that are perfect for barbecuing or simple lounging. No need to bring towels, cookware, extra blankets or any other items from home, as these rentals are fully loaded with everything to accommodate you and the family.

Summer Fun and Winter Bliss at Southern Colorado Vacation Homes
Summer is always a great time to plan a vacation to Colorado. With over 300 days of annual sunshine, the summer months are some of the best in the west. It’s never too hot here as the highs are usually in the mid to low 80s. This makes for a very comfortable summer vacation, as many travelers try to avoid extremely high temperatures in the summertime.
Winter can be great fun for a vacation in the Rockies as well. You can hit the slopes and enjoy almost any snow-related activities that you can think of. Nearly 300 inches of snow fall here every year bring skiers, snowboarders and winter sports fanatics from all over the globe. You can expect to see the first snowfall around September, although it usually snows somewhere in the state every month, except for August (usually). Rainfall for the state brings 16.5 inches each year.
Getting to Southern Colorado Lodging
Most of the time when you fly to Colorado, you will land at Denver International Airport (also known as DIA), and from here, you can rent a car to continue the rest of your journey to Southern Colorado.
There are several highways in the Southern Colorado region that will take you into any of the surrounding cities in the area. However, one of the major highways used in the southernmost part of Colorado is I-25. This highway runs through Las Animas County which is the largest county in the state. I-25 runs straight through almost all of the other cities along the I-25 Corridor and other highways branch out from it. You can find your way to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from here as well as other popular destinations like Trinidad, Lathrop State Park and Cuchara Ski Resort.
