We have a 3,900 square foot home in the upscale neighborhood of Flying Horse in North Colorado Springs. Built in 2006, our tri-level, 5-bedroom home has 4 bathrooms, and a 3 car garage.

We are mainly renting our home on a very limited bases each year. We are only 3 miles from the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) and tend to rent during Graduation Week late in each May, and again for the USAFA Parent's Weekend each late August or early September.

If you need a large home that can sleep up to 12 people in beds, and are attending an Air Force Academy function or the US Olympic/World Trials, we would love to have you stay at our home. If you are in need of a place during other times of the year, such as a wedding during the summer months, please contact us FIRST, and we can see if we can make ourselves scarce. Monthly rentals would best be done during the summer months.

The layout of the house includes 4 bedrooms on the top floor. The master has a king bed. Bedroom 2 has a full bed. Bedroom 3 has a twin over full bunk bed, and bedroom 4 has a full bed with a twin trundle. There are two bathrooms on the top floor.

The middle level has the study, living room, family room, kitchen, and access to the patio, and 3 car garage. The kitchen has 2 ovens and an oven/microwave combo. There is seating for 5 in the eat-in kitchen, and 8 in the dining room just off the kitchen. If you need additional seating for an outdoor occasion inside or in the back yard, we have 20 folding chairs available and two folding tables. There is a 50 inch LCD TV, and the washer and dryer is here as well.

The lower level has another guest room with a king bed, there is a 60 inch plasma TV with surround, piano, wet bar, pub table seating, and another bathroom. A treadmill is available for your use.

The house has wireless Internet access, a desk top computer and printer with ePrint, a huge selection of DVDs, Satellite TV, NetFlix, BBQ grill, patio table and chairs. We also have central air conditioning, and a gas fire place.

If the sleeping configuration does not suit your multiple family's party, an additional queen electric blowup mattress is available, which can be set up in any open space. We still ask that the house have no more than 12 guests stay over night, although exceptions could be made for additional small children.

Sorry, no pets.

About Michael Willard

I first moved to Colorado in 1977 as the son of a military pilot, who was based in Colorado Springs. Growing up in this beautiful state, I gained a love and appreciation of the great outdoors, and magestic Rocky Mountains. I left Colorado in 1990 to attend college, and started my career as an airline pilot in 1996. After being based in all corners of the United States, it was always my goal to return home to this great state, which I did in 2006. My wife and I, our and three children now live in one of the best cities in the country...Colorado Springs.

Michael Willard purchased this house in 2006

Large 5 Bedroom 4 Bath House in North Colorado Springs, Ideal For USAFA Events
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

We found our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful home! The layout was perfect for our family and provided enough room for everyone to have their own bedroom and has a large finished basement that is great for hanging out together. The kitchen is well equipped, as well. The owners provided a packet of detailed instructions for operating everything.

We rented the home for parents weekend at the USAFA. The location is ideal when attending events there. It is a quick easy drive to the many other Colorado Springs spots that we wanted to see, as well. The neighborhood is lovely! We look forward to staying here again.

The owners were great to work with during the entire process. They are friendly and helpful and were so quick to respond when we had questions.

Michael and Krista, thank you for opening your fabulous home to our family. We had a blast!

First VRBO experience - home run!!!

  • 5 of 5

With no prior experience, I had no idea what to expect - fortunately, we had an excellent experience! The family was incredibly responsive to our initial request, asked us details about the nature of our stay, and then made sure we had EVERYTHING we could have possibly needed for our stay - and then some, just in case! I never expected the family to go to the lengths they did to accommodate our requests and the activities we had planned while at their home. They literally thought of everything and paid attention to the smallest of details. The booklet of information provided at the home was priceless - very clear instructions on how to operate everything in the home from entertainment systems to wi-fi. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful with great sidewalks and recreation areas. If I were moving to the area, this is a neighborhood I could call home. This home was perfect for our family and our guests and there was plenty of room for everyone. We look forward to our next visit!!!
