Unique! Peaceful! Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at The View House. It was stocked with everything imaginable. This property is close to all major attractions but, secluded enough to make the perfect getaway . The owners thought of every detail making for an enjoyable stay. Sitting on the patio next to the waterfall was so relaxing you would forget there was a town just below. The house itself was very unique and the views were incredible. The house has a very open floor plan but privacy amongst our guests was never a problem. Beware, there are three levels and plenty of stairs. The view from every level is superb.However, it is not handicap accessible. If you rent this house you will not be disappointed. The View House lives up to its name.

A beautiful, clean, and comfortable home. The views were spectacular! We'll be back again.

  • 5 of 5

The View House is aptly named; the house provides incredible views of Manitou Springs in the valley and surrounding mountains. Three delightful patios allow nature-watching, restful relaxation, and unhurried conversations. A gurgling stream off the back is a perfect background to finches and hummingbirds in the surrounding trees. The home was an excellent home-base for excursions to shopping and people-watching in Manitou Springs and trips to the Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Cliff Dwellings, and more. Although we could have filled our week with activities close to home, a fifteen minute drive further west is Woodland Park and more excellent restaurants. North into Colorado Springs is the Air Force Academy and the Cheyene Rocky Mountain Zoo. This was one of our best sibling reunions, due largely to our comfortable home away from home. Thumbs up all around!

This house is amazing. The views are spectacular, words can't even describe it. It is a must see. The mountains are your backyard. We sat on our patio for HOURS just staring at them. They are so peaceful. What a way to relax after visiting all the local attractions.

When we arrived to this house we were taken back immediately by the beauty. The inside was just as amazing. VERY CLEAN! The kitchen is fully equipped to make any meal. The bedrooms are spread out perfectly. I cab honestly speak for our entire group when I say this... this place is the best vacation spot we have ever been to. Colorado is a special place and staying at this house is a must.

Beautiful setting weird layout

  • 3 of 5

This house sits at a choice location for views everywhere. The kitchen was well supplied but the stove needs replacing. It is too hot or not hot enough depending on the burner. The patio with fountain is heavenly . The real problem lies with the the spacial layout. Big bedrooms but tiny tiny bathrooms with no room to move. The open floor plan means that two of the three bedrooms are exposed to every sound in the living area and vice-versa.
