Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We moved to Colorado Springs 11 years ago and have fallen in love with all the area has to offer. We also love to travel and have a large family who enjoys vacationing together. We've experienced the dilemma of trying to book multiple hotel rooms and being spread out on different floors. So, we figured there are other families who would appreciate the no hassles of staying together in large home. Since our work takes us away from home, we decided to offer it for use to other families in our absent months. We know you would enjoy your time spent in our home as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! It's like a private, quiet retreat but near to everything! And the VIEWS can't be beat!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are hiking trails and abundant wildlife in the neighborhood on top of all the local attractions you can enjoy nearby. There's nothing quite so awe inspiring as that morning cup of coffee on your private deck! A school with park setting, basketball and tennis all within walking distance.
