About the owner: Hi. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs and have a true love of the mountain lifestyle and beauty. Most of my family lives here, so I grew up with tons of aunts, uncles and cousins. I met my husband while attending Colorado College and we now have one son and three grandchildren living here. It's not only a splendid place to live but is on the top of many Americans' touring list. Even as Colorado natives, we never run out of things to do. We love to hike, bike, ski, river raft, attend camps and colleges and shop at the local stores in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City. Each summer we attend the Colorado Renaissance Festival, which is a lot of fun!
Why the Owner Chose Monument, CO, USA:
We searched all over the central front range for the best location to put our vacation home and found it in Monument. What's so special about Monument? It's quiet. The views are incredible. There is easy access to restaurants, big box stores and local coffee shops. Plus the small historic town has the nicest people!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Growing up with a view of Pikes Peak made me think that every kid had a mountain in his/her backyard. After living many years in my young adulthood in other states, I began to appreciate how much beauty, spiritual calm and fun awaited me in my home town. When I moved back, I took advantage of the things I had taken for granted and fell in love with Colorado. My husband is originally from Wisconsin and he loves the milder Colorado winters. The springtime is sweet with fragrant flowers. Summers are dry (except for the occaisional July downpour that will soak you wet and be gone in 20 minutes) and cool at night. Autumn makes Colorado colorful. Our Colorado vacation home shows off all these attributes.
