About Skip

I am an Air Force Academy grad, retired Air Force JAG, and practice law in Colorado Springs. Originally from the east coast, I fell in love with Colorado and just can't leave. I am willing to share my home with you and trust you will treat it as your home.

Skip purchased this house in 2002

Why Skip chose Kissing Camels

Colorado Springs is a wonderful area year around. I believe you will find my home comfortable and fun. Kissing Camels is a gated golf course community with excellent security. Hiking and biking in the stunning Garden of Gods park less than two miles away. Many other parks and recreation facilities are available. Click on my link to the tour of my house and amenities, along with many other house photos under the 'Owner Info' tab.

What makes this house unique

Home theater, four fireplaces, pool table, large open rooms, and tremendous location make this a wonderful home for a family or multiple families to enjoy. Next to Garden of Gods park, close to Air Force Academy and all local attractions. This unique home and surrounding area has much to offer. Unbeatable!

We came to Colorado Springs for a wedding. There were 11 of us plus my dog. Ages were from 1 year old to 93 years old and the home was perfect for our family. Skip met us at the house and made sure to answer any questions we had and greet us personally. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and a more hospitable owner.

Perfect homebase for a great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we needed (location, set up, amenities) for a great family vacation. Skip was extremely accommodating to let us check-in a little early in order to put kids down for naps. The house had everything one could need, including tons of kitchen utensils and appliances and a stash of board games and puzzles which we really enjoyed. It was a great place to come back to after a day of exploring Colorado Springs.

This home was just as the owner said it would be. It accommodated our family for our summer vacation. Very close to all great things to in the Springs. Well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. We would definitely do this again! Beautiful home and views of Mountains.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest places we have stayed. Host has the house well stocked with everything you will need except food. And then, there are numerous spices and staples available for your use. The furnishings are in good shape, comfortable beds.

The only thing we missed was the ability to go swimming. The guest passes were on the expensive side.

The house is within easy driving distance to everything in Colorado Springs.
