About Pat & Lisa DiPaola
We have been married for 37 wonderful years and God has blessed us with four amazing children an grandchild.
Pat & Lisa DiPaola purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Pat & Lisa DiPaola chose Colorado Springs
We purchased this home so we could have enough room to spread out without bumping into our neighbors. The treed 600' front yard provides complete privacy from the road below. We loved the open floor plan of a passive solar house, the proximity to Fox Run Regional Park, and the quick access to so many things. We love it here and we think you will enjoy it too!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Excellent location for participating in Air Force Academy activities such as USAFA Graduation and USAFA Parents Weekend. Less than 2 hour drive to Summit county ski and summer recreation areas; Breckenridge, Keystone, Winter Park, Copper, Vail, Beaver Creek. Aspen, and A-Basin.

Perfect for our gathering!
This lovely 3 story home was perfect for our gathering to celebrate our daughter's wedding. This large home provided plentiful areas for friends and family to gather for a wide variety of activities. The kitchen is well appointed complete with a double oven and two refrigerator/freezers. We loved the generous deck with comfortable furniture and large grill. Indoors, there was plenty of room to set up for our various activities. We enjoyed watching the wildlife around the grounds, as well as the proximity to Fox Run Regional Park (out the back door). .Very quiet and private property, and yet less than 10 minutes to groceries, shopping and restaurants. In particular, we found Lisa and Pat to be responsive and helpful
before, during and after our rental.
If you are looking for a spacious, private and beautiful retreat for your gathering, this could be it. Although it is 3 stories, the lower level would work well for those in your party who may not be able to climb the stairs.
A 5. Great all the way around.
10 of us stayed.
Beautiful grounds. All the amenities you need. Lovely deck to sit on.

Great location !
Spoke with the owner about some issues when we arrived. All was addressed and would return. Thanks for sharing your home!
The house was excellent we had a family of 19 and we all had room to spread out. We had a wonderful experience in the house they had everything we needed and would definitely recommend this home for others.
Andrea - thanks so much for your wonderful review and for your return this year. Hope to see you again next year.
Beautiful home, gorgeous area!
We enjoyed out stay. The home provided us with enough space to do many different activities and also be all together. We loved the trails around the home and sitting out on the deck.
We had everything we needed. The tv remote did not work, but we just turned it on right on the tv.
We loved how we didn't have homes right next to us and felt like we were out on our own.
Perfect vacation rental
Great location. We were able to visit all the attractions all within 1 1/2 hours. With 5 Grandchildren and 7 adults we enjoyed the privacy and size of the home. The kids loved taking the trail to the park and playing on the play ground. We even saw some deer within 100 yards of the house. I would definitely recommend this house.
