This unique modern home was designed for your vacationing pleasure. Surrounded by a year round cascading stream, towering cottonwood trees, and mammoth boulders, this house truly brings the outdoors inside. You'll never guess that you are less than 2 minutes to downtown Manitou Springs, 5 minutes to Old Colorado City, and 10 minutes to downtown Colorado Springs.
This is the ultimate vacation getaway!
The home features three story windows and gives the perception of living in a tree house with a green tree canopy in the summer, gold leaves in the fall and views of Pikes Peak in the winter.
The master bedroom offers a relaxing retreat complete with king size bed, walk-out roof top deck with chaise loungers, fireplace, Asian style pocket doors, and walk-in closet. You will never want to leave the spa style 5-piece master bath with a stand-alone European tub, rain shower, dual sinks, exposed steel beam, modern tile and custom concrete touches. The other bedrooms all include queen size beds with high-end pillow top mattresses and feature contemporary furniture and fixtures. The upstairs bathroom offers a modern vessel sink and soaking tub. The downstairs bathroom is equally as unique and has an integrated two tone concrete sink with fiber optic stars that twinkle over a mountain range when you wash your hands.
The commercial style kitchen is fully equipped to make cooking at home a pleasurable experience. You'll find stainless steel countertops and appliances, hanging pot rack, glass cook top, and modern cabinets. There are two primary dining areas - one indoors and one on an outdoor cantilevered dining deck - both of which allow you to enjoy the stream year round.
Downstairs you will find a TV / game room with lounging couch, fireplace, flat screen TV with 400+ cable and movie channels, and foosball table. This recreation room walks out into the private backyard which features a hammock and steps that spiral into the stream. In addition to the hammock, the backyard has a set of 10 Adirondack chairs so that your family can enjoy a cocktail, watch some wildlife, and chat about your vacation stream side!
Your stay in this home will be unforgettable - quiet & serene setting, space to spread out, and 2 minutes from downtown Manitou Springs - it doesn't get any better!

Stream Side Retreat is right! Deer in the yard daily!
As city slickers, we don't frequently get a chance to experience the outdoors and the clean air in Colorado. We were fortunate to come across this property and we cannot wait to return. It's an ideal location with close access to downtown Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs, but feels like a world away since deer and other wildlife are often roaming in the yard. We saw deer every single day! The house was exceptionally clean, well appointed and we loved falling asleep to the stream ever night. We can't wait to get out of the city and spend more time at this house!
Slack jawed staring at the countless deer and gorgeous stream setting!!
This house is stunning! From the time we walkednin, our family couldn't stop staring out the windows at the stream and constant flow of deer through the backyard. Absolutely amazing! The house is in an ideal location, close to the major touristy sites while being set aside in a quiet neighborhood oasis. Our reservation process went flawlessly and we had a great stay. We will be back!!!
Our family had a reunion at this beautiful house. It was the perfect size for our needs. It was close to shops and all the great restaurants in Manitou Springs. We will definitely stay here again, if fact, we've already made reservations for next April for just my husband and I! The perfect vacation spot for a couple or family. The scenery was gorgeous.
Just as described
Total of 7 of us stayed here. 2 couples in their 30's, 1 couple in their 60's, and my 10 yo son. We all had a great time! We cooked, played board games, enjoyed watching the deer, squirrels and birds, and just rested in the evenings after spending the days sight seeing. Everything you need to prepare a meal is stocked and there is a Safeway Grocery just a mile up the road into Colorado Springs. Lots of cookware, coffee maker, can openerl, corkscrew, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster, outside grill. You may want to bring your own sharp knife though as none of the knives are too sharp. The cantina just a half mile down the road is awesome for food and margaritas too! Really, we just had a fabulous time. FYI though to whomever takes the master bedroom: The fireplace wall is open to the living room so everyone will be able to hear any noises you make. Just food for thought when assigning bedrooms. Oh, and check the inside of the lowest level's ottoman for toys and games. My son had a great time playing foozball with all of us and poking around in the stream. Not sure how safe it would be for small children though---lots of stairs, plus the stream to watch out for. Anyhow, if you book this place you won't regret it. Hope your family has as much fun as ours did!
We loved our stay for our 20th wedding anniversary! Beautiful home. Great location. We already are making plans to return as a family. Lots of stairs so maybe not the getaway for very young children or elderly but perfect for us.
5 of us, 3 generations stayed here. We had a lovely time. The house is beautiful. Loved the big windows especially when it was snowing. Watching the wildlife come around in the morning was awesome. The house was very comfortable and clean. The fire place an added bonus for those wintery nights. Close to some great hikes and local restaurants. Will definitely be back.
Make a lifetime of memories during your stay at this Stream Side Vacation Retreat: TV / game room with lounging couch, foosball table, private backyard with hammock and Adirondack style chairs. Sit back, enjoy a cocktail, watch some wildlife, and chat about your vacation stream side!
