About Geo and Heidi Roberts


Geo and Heidi moved to the north end of Colorado Springs late 2014, having lived in England 38 years where our sons, wives and five grandkids ( 13- 21) remain. We wanted to be nearer our aging parents (California and Kansas) as well as other family and friends in America, so Colorado seemed a sensible strategic 'mid-way' compromise. Geo grew up in Nebraska, Heidi, California.

Geo and Heidi Roberts purchased this house in 2014

Why Geo and Heidi Roberts chose Briargate

In addition to 'loving the big blue-sky' climate, we were attracted to this 'north end of town' by the pleasant , friendly neighborhood, the awesome Pikes Peak and Rampart Range majesty, the proximity of USAF Academy and the Eisenhower Golf Course (Geo is a Class of 1968 Graduate and we are both keen golfers!), New Life Church (our 'church home') and easy access to I-25. It is great to have a 'country-side' location as well as access to major roads and amenities, whatever the weather.

What makes this house unique

We searched for months through many hundreds of properties on-line and 'in person' via our incredible local realtor, Nancy Rusinak, who led us to our Ranch-style home, which for us was 'delight at first sight,' and it remains even more so now that we have happily settled in the Creekside 'South' neighborhood.

Our personal house guests often remark how peaceful, spacious and comfortable our home is and we firmly believe our HomeAway / VRBO 'house guests' will also enjoy their stay here as much as we will enjoy having them share in the cozy comfort.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

2520 Lumberjack Dr. has spoiled us! The Roberts provided everything we could possibly need in a rental. We used to think that Hampton Inn was the best place to stay. Then, we began renting cabins in the Smokey Mountains and thought they were great. But, this property out did all of that. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. We were very comfortable and had a relaxing time. If we are back in this area again we will try to rent this property.

P.S. The view of Pike's Peak from the front and the view of the AF Academy Chapel in the distance from the back balcony were breath taking!
