"Our big family rented several properties this week in Colorado Springs. Of all those that were rented to accomodate all of us, this was the best. From the stocked toiletries to the movie theater downstairs,there was a lot of attention to detail. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. It was definitely off the beaten path but the drive to all the tourist attractions were beautiful. It is conveniently located in between Colorado springs and Denver. Our kids enjoyed our week at the "Mansion" which is what they called it. Very Kid and Adult friendly!"

"We are a group of three friends and our five daughters ages 9-13 and this is our third year leaving the guys at home and heading to Salida. We arrived at our home in early afternoon and were greeted by a family of deer across the street that remained until evening. It was a lovely sight and our five girls were thrilled (as were the moms)! Once inside the home we were delighted when we looked out the kitchen window and were welcomed by the view - it truly was the view of Angels - just heavenly! As for the house, it was perfect for our vacation. The kitchen was bright, clean, colorful, large and well supplied with all our kitchen needs which is great for a group our size. We had breakfast there each morning and prepared picnic lunches or ate at the home and there were plenty of dishes. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable, warm and three of the four had TVs, although I don't think the girls ever turned them on at night - they were too tired from all their fun. As the house was on a cul-de-sac the girls also went outside a few times just to play and we were so happy to let them. In addition, the home is very close to a trail that leads directly to town and all 8 of us walked it at least once and some of the group four or five times. We truly felt that we were home and wanted for nothing. The owner was easy to work with and very friendly. Also, very gracious. Four days after we got home my one friend realized that two of the home's towels had inadvertently been packed in her bag, by our other friend. I called the owner to let her know that they'd be sent back and she was very kind and said that was fine. (They will arrive soon - I've been assured of that)! Overall, a great visit and time. The home is clean, cozy, close to town, quiet and just has the most beautiful views - and I (we) highly recommend this lovely home!"

"This home is just lovely and very comfortable! We had a group of 22 adults and it worked just fine. The property is very wooded and feels secluded, but is close to Fairplay for any last minute needs! The owner was great to work with...communicated quickly and clearly and was willing to accommodate our large group! The deck and all the outdoor seating/picnic tables around the fire pit are great too! The big kitchen (stocked with plenty of pots and dishes) was definitely a big plus as well! Thank you for a great experience!"

"This is an excellent property. The pictures are good but reality is better. The views are wonderful as you are surrounded by 14000+ foot mountains and the river is right in front of you. There is excellent fishing in a small lake an easy 7-8 minute walk down the road. My entire family loved the house and location. There were 6 of us and plenty of room for more. The owner was professional and easy to deal with!"
