About The Owner

We have lived in Colorado Springs most of our lives and enjoy all that the Colorado mountains have to offer - biking, hiking, camping, snowboarding/skiing, etc. The city itself has a lot to offer as well from the fun Downtown/Colorado College area, to funky Old Colorado City, to even more funky Manitou Springs. The new University Village area near UCCS, only 5 mins from the house, also has a lot - shopping, huge variety of restaurants (both local and chain), Trader Joe's, Costco, etc.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Colorado Springs

It's a nice house with lots of space both inside and out, lots of natural light, and in a quiet suburban neighborhood with mature landscaping, close to I-25 so easy to get almost anywhere in the city and beyond. The neighborhood has many large, open spaces with trails, lots of trees and lots of wildlife.

What makes this house unique

Offered by 20-yr homeowner, who keeps the house up as a home and stays there several times per year. No sterile rental offered by large management company! So much to see close to the house ... hiking and mountain biking in Ute Valley Park or Garden of the Gods, exploring the Air Force Academy ... conveniently located near major highways to get to the mountains and their slopes, Denver attractions and sporting events, shopping, U.S. Olympic Training Center, and much more! We also love the mature landscaping, the front fountain and the fact that the house is very private even though it's in a neighborhood, with no neighbors on the back and one side of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

[Excerpt from guestbook] Our stay lasted from 13 Sep - 16 Sep while we were attending the International Association of Fire Fighters' Fallen Firefighters Memorial Annual Service. Our stay was amazing and we hope to stay here in the future. On behalf of the United Emergency Medical Professionals of Arizona Local I-60, we would like to say thank you and God bless.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at your beautiful home when we were in the Springs for a family reunion. We had married couples with several children - all had a very comfortable room to stay. The little ones loved the bunk room, even building a fort in their room before the rest of us woke up. We didn't use the kitchen a lot, because we had a lot of activities planned while we were there, but it was very well stocked for any need. Several of our family walked the trail, right behind the house, and needed to wait for deer! What a thrill! We even had a deer at our front yard. Our only inconvenience were bees. We had quite a few right outside the door. But, that's what you have to contend with when you are in nature! Thank you for a wonderful place to stay and great memories!

Great location for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. It was conveniently located to Garden of the Gods and Pike’s Peak area. The multi-level floor plan of the house was great for our family of 8 adults and 7 children. It was very comfortable and roomy. We were able to spread out and not be on top of each other. The house was well stocked with lots of amenities; books, games and toys for the kids. We all enjoyed the pool table, ping pong table and darts. The little ones enjoyed the Duplos and dress up in the bunk room. The backyard was very quiet and peaceful. We even had a visit from one of the local deer. The only thing we had a problem with was the yellowjackets/wasps that hung out in the greenery in the front. A few of the kids got stung. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay. We would recommend this house to others.

Love the recent updates!

  • 5 of 5

Owners staying in home for first time this year. Just got new carpet in the whole house and are so happy with it! Added a few other new touches and updated all the travel brochures on CO. Rode the Cog Railway, with family and friends, to top of Pikes Peak - hadn't done it in decades and was reminded of how beautiful it is and such a great option to have to visit the nearby Rocky Mountains. After all these years, still so happy to be "home"!

I stayed here for just over a month and loved every bit of it. The backyard has its own little forest. The HUGE deck overlooking it allows you to watch the deer that come in to forage and also watch the many squirrels running around playing. No deer in the back...well check the front. Beautifully landscaped front yard with a small waterfall and bench. Inside is spacious and easy to gather everyone while still being able to find your own space. Pool table, TVs, and darts are just bonus items to an already great place to stay.

Colorado is Awsome!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this HOMEY home away from home. It accommodated our family well. I would definately stay here again. I would definately use VRBO again. Colorado Springs has so much to offer. This home is in a quiet neighborhood and so close to what ever you want to do. We didn't get to do all we would have liked, but we skiied at Ski Cooper, rode the train at the Royal Gorge, toured the cliff dwellings and the museum, and hiked at Garden of the Gods. It was all wonderful. We would love to come back in the summer time sometime. We did not have any issues dealing with the owners of this house. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! The Adams

Family wedding trip

  • 5 of 5

The floor plan of the house was extremely well suited to our singles/couples/kids situation, and we were able to have local and visiting family over to eat, thanks to the large kitchen, excellent traffic flow pattern, and the wonderful back porch off of the breakfast area. The bathrooms were adequate and well situated, and the downstairs recreation area was much enjoyed. The neighborhood was nice, with a nature trail right on the side of the yard. Close to good grocery stores and shopping. Overall, it was well worth it, and very enjoyable!
