Nice kitchen and very spacious dinning/entertaining area and outside deck. Perfect for a family gathering. We enjoyed the pool table.

Carol the owner is a delight and desires the create the best retreat experience possible! You have to check this place out!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We really enjoy having Matt and his youth group they are some of the most respectful guezts we've ever had, They have rented every summer for several years-and we will always welcome them back we love that we can use our home for the glory of our Lord Jesus!!

                                                                    Very comfortable, easy entertaining home. Fully stocked with all serving supplies needed.

                                                                    Julie L.

                                                                    Wonderful home that comfortably accommodated our large family AND dinner guest that we had on some evenings. Very conveniently located to USAFA and loved waking up each morning viewing the Academy campus. Wonderful view of Thunderbirds practicing a couple of days before graduation. Back porch was lovely for entertaining as well and the extremely comfortable rec room on bottom level was great for teenagers. Owner was very responsive to all of our needs. Would definitely stay here over and over. Fabulous week every had at this home!!!

                                                                    Wow, wow, WOW

                                                                    Joe G.Diamond Bar California

                                                                    This is the second time we have stayed at Carol's home. Actually you can call it YOUR home, because that's exactly how she and the home make you feel. If I could give 6 stars, that's what I'd give. The whole house has everything you can imagine. It is ready for you and your family to live in. I won't lie, it's not cheap, but when you are renting for a week, the week your child graduates from the AF academy, it is (was) sooooo worth it. From the front wrap around porch we could see the academy and sit back and watch the Thunderbirds practice the show they were going to fly for graduation. Ease of access to the academy made life so much easier during the hectic pace of graduation week. We had family from the midwest to the southwest show up and the house is so big, any family could fit. And the party that Carol threw for my son was spot on, A-number 1, thank you Carol just doesn't seem to be enough. THANK YOU
