  • Very Nice Rental

    "This was a very nice rental in a very nice area. House was clean and well stocked. It was close to town and close to so many adventures - Pike's Peak, Cave of the Winds and Garden of the Gods. It was a great vacation - thank you!"

  • GREAT!

    "Me and a few friends stayed here for a vacation. It was nice that we each had our own room, and own bathroom. The place was nicely put together and very clean. The Roku was nice so we could relax and watch netflix. Had a great week staying at this house. The neighbors are also very friendly!"

  • Perfection at its best

    "Our family has rented the Antler Creek House every year during my son's 4 years at the Air Force Academy. Every year we felt like we were coming home. The house is as described in the ad, clean, very roomy, nicely decorated and functional. The area is ideal for long walks, the fitness center offers state of the art equipment and the Antler Creek Grille is perfect for a casual meal. As a family, we voted to celebrate my son's graduation there for its food, atmosphere and value. There are supermarkets and other necessities nearby and the academy is only 30 minutes away. Every year we were eager to be able to enjoy our coffee or afternoon cocktail on the deck looking out at Pikes Peak. We all felt like we leaving a friend on our last morning there. Don has always been flexible with our schedule. Thank you for providing our home away from home. Theresa"

  • Saved our retreat!

    "An unfortunate last-minute change with another property owner resulted in the very fortunate occurrence of me finding this wonderful property right in Manitou Springs where we wanted to stay! It was more than perfect for my women's retreat with 8 women! Plenty of room, huge kitchen table, cozy seating areas & comfy beds. The bedrooms were all decorated nicely with good linens. The 2nd floor bathrooms both have double sinks and a shower or bath so it was very adequate for our group. We decided not to put anyone on the 3rd floor since as the owner mentions, it is not that suitable for taller (or older) adults with the steep stairs and peaked, low ceilings. We did check it out and the beds are built into the sides of the walls which I imagine all kids would love! Plus there is a 3/4 (?) bath up there too! The backyard is spacious with a wonderful patio but we only got to have lunch outside once since the Oct weather didn’t cooperate. Many of us checked out the great views on both of the two 2nd floor balconies. We loved being able to walk down the hill to shop and hang out in Manitou all day Saturday and not have to drive, search and pay for parking. Sunday we enjoyed lounging at the residence in the “salon” after a leisurely breakfast. I would give this property 5 stars but there were some electrical outlets and lighting over the bathroom sinks that weren’t working plus a few other quirks which are probably just a result of the challenges of maintaining “this old house”. Nothing so bad we wouldn’t consider returning or highly recommend this property! We had an issue with the disposal side of the kitchen sink not draining and the owner had someone out first thing Sat morning to fix it. Fortunately it didn’t affect both sides of the sink so we weren’t hampered for our meal preparation/clean-up. After thinking I was going to have to cancel my women’s retreat and return everyone’s money at the last minute things worked out better than I could have imagined! We were all thrilled!"

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.

Tons to do and see Near Southern Colorado Vacation Homes

Besides the beautiful mountains in the southern Colorado region, there is a ring of smaller cities that offer many alluring attractions. For instance, at the foot of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs vacation rentals offer visitors a chance to step back in time to when the Gold Rush was booming after the discovery of gold in the local spring water. The Gold Rush of the 19th century helped to shape the city’s history and modernity, and today, this has given visitors that opportunity to access the numerous trails and embrace the history of this part of the Rockies.

To the west of the Rockies lies the Royal Gorge and the Florissant Fossil Beds. These two magnificent places are worth a day trip on any vacation. The Royal Gorge offers a chanced to take a literal walk through the ages as this canyon is 1,250 feet deep and 50 feet wide. It’s one of the deepest canyons, while the Florissant Fossil Beds are home to the most amazing fossils you’ll ever see in your lifetime. Thousands of visitors come to see these amazing petrified remains of redwoods, ancient animals and trace fossils

Travel a bit farther from your Southern Colorado lodging and you will discover nearby Cripple Creek vacations, where you can try your luck at low-stakes gambling and other activities. Pueblo and Canon City offer rafting trips, historical museums, camping grounds, mountain biking and superior hiking trails, especially in the San Isabel and Pike national forests. Mountain climbers can brave the Collegiate Peaks near Buena Vista and Salida.

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.
