About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

This spacious and beautiful home, built in 2004, sits on 1 acre in the majestic pine trees of the Black Forest of northern Colorado Springs. It boasts a balcony looking out into the woods and has enough seating for 12. Only a half-mile up the road, is the Fox Run Regional Park which has two ponds, a gazebo, large meadows for playing sports, two playground areas, two trails through the woods for hiking, and a picturesque view of Pikes Peak.

You are sure to be comfortable in one of the five bedrooms, the well-lit living room or the basement family room. Your competitive spirit will come alive in the game room where you can enjoy a friendly game of ping pong or basketball shoot-out. If you would rather, take your game outside and play a game of hoops on the 24' x 30' court in the cool, mountain air.

Your vacation home is situated in the peaceful woods, yet is only 2 miles off of I-25 and gives you the amenities of a large grocery store, Wal-Mart and the new Bass Pro Shop five minutes away. This up-scale home is ideal for attending Academy events or for exploring other area attractions including Garden of the gods, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Focus on the Family Visitor Center, or the Colorado Springs and Denver areas.

We would love for you to be our guest.

About Eddy and Misty Boyles

We have been married for twenty-one years and God has blessed us with four amazing teenage children.

Eddy and Misty Boyles purchased this house in 2004

Why Eddy and Misty Boyles chose Colorado Springs

We purchased this home when it was in the initial ground-breaking phase from the custom builder who was building it as a spec home. We loved the open floor plan, the proximity to Fox Run Regional Park, the beautiful treed setting, and the quick access to so many things. We love it here and we think you will enjoy it too!

We really enjoyed our stay at Misty and Eddy's beautiful house-wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculately maintained and very warm and welcoming and comfortable! We had a large group (10 total) that included a few teens and a 3 year old. There was so much room for us to be together and also apart if needed (e.g. nap time for the 3 year old). The game room was a huge hit for all of us! The BBQ was spectacular and large enough for us to grill dinner for the entire group at one time. And the volleyball net led to some fantastic games of volleyball. We enjoyed the upstairs deck in the morning for coffee and breakfast and in the evening for dinner. The house had everything we needed including an ice machine which was greatly appreciated with the hot weather! We were able to do a lot of the activities in the area due to the location of the house. The house seems like it's secluded with the large lot and all the trees but activities are not too far away. Thank you Misty and Eddy for the use of your lovely home! We made some great memories that we will cherish for a long time!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for our group! It was within walking distance of a fantastic park and the home itself was quite roomy and provided lots of entertainment for our kids who range during in age from 8-21 years. It's a bit of a drive to the touristy attractions (30 or so minutes to Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, etc) but they are all a straight shot down I-25 to get to and none of us minded the drive. The owners were fantastic and the home is immaculate. We highly recommend!

Even more than we expected - LOVED by the whole family - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I chose to rent this house because it sounded like the best option for my family. My husband and kids were a little unsure about renting someone's house vs hotel rooms. for less per night than the hotel rooms would have been, we had our own rooms and our own space. There was so much for everyone to do inside and out. They each came to me at a different point in time and thanked me and said how perfect it was. everyone had things about the house, from the floor plan to the comfortable furniture that they wanted to have back at home. For me, the kitchen was the best. More than the basics are provided. There was plenty of room for me to cook and everyone come in and out and we weren't on top of each other. Everything I thought of that I might want was there - griddle, waffle maker, blender, etc. The ice maker was a huge hit!

In addition to the house and all it provided, the location was convenient to the things we wanted to do.

thank you so much to the Boyles family for your beautiful home that shows your Godly spirit to those you welcome in.

Great 2015 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Colorado Springs was the destination for our 2015 family vacation and we were delighted to have stayed in this beautiful home. It was perfect for my parents, my family, and my sister’s family. There was plenty of room for eleven of us. We really enjoyed spending time together in the kitchen/family room and on the large deck. We had so much fun watching the squirrels and the hummingbirds. The backyard with all the trees is so peaceful and tranquil, you feel like you are out in the wilderness. Our big breakfasts and many pots of coffee prepared us for the adventures of the day. The location is perfect for all the sight-seeing excursions. We toured the Air Force Academy, went to Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak, and white water rafting, etc. The most adventurous and exciting thing we did was to go ziplining (Adventures Out West) on family night! It was so nice to return in the evening to this comfortable house where we really did feel at home. We played games at night upstairs and enjoyed late night snacks. The kids had a great time playing video games in the basement. They were able to easily hook up the game system they brought from home. We also had fun with the ping pong table and the basketball game in the basement along with all the books and children’s toys. The house was perfect in every way. It was stocked with everything we needed and more. Misty and Eddy were wonderful to work with before and during our stay. We highly recommend this beautiful home that helped make our 2015 vacation special and memorable.

Truly Memorable

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, peaceful home was just perfect for our family's Christmas get together. There was plenty or room for the eight adults and three children to sleep, play, and enjoy each others' company. We enjoy cooking together, and the kitchen had all the amenities you could hope for. The owners were amazing to work with, and even generous enough to leave their Christmas tree up for us to enjoy. :) From the comfort and beautifully furnished inside accommodations to the beauty of nature outdoors, our stay in this home was truly memorable!
