About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Colorado Springs

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 one mile away. Many other parks and recreation facilities are available.

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!

Perfect for USAFA graduation week!

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful setting to the spacious, lovely and clean home, we could not have asked for more.

The owner, Skip was very helpful and available to assist with questions and suggestions.

He provided paper and soap products.

Just a perfect week!

This large home fits in with the safe, high quality, gated community.

  • 5 of 5

Great experience with adult children and three grandchildren ages 3 and under. My husband and I reserved a room at the hotel a few nights so we could have access to the tennis facilities, otherwise the club makes it a chore for guests. Loved the amazing large theater in the basement, fully stocked kitchen and home. Bath towels, sheets all great. Kitchen is well stocked.

This house was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and really enjoyed staying at this home near Garden of the Gods. We only wish the weather had been better so that we could have enjoyed sitting out on the deck and looking at the mountains.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second winter staying for 7 weeks at Skip's place and it is awesome! All you need to bring is your clothes and everything else is move in ready! The house is so clean and has so much room and privacy if you have visitors. The neighborhood is great and very friendly. Skip is so accommodating in whatever you may need. Thanks Skip for such a wonderful stay. We hope to see you next year😀? Dru and Colleen

Fun place

  • 4 of 5

This house was fun to stay in. We enjoyed the movie-style screen with Netflix and Amazon Prime, etc., as well as the pool table. Multiple fireplaces make the house very cozy. The neighborhood is very nice. Be aware that the curb at the end of the driveway has a steep drop-off and can cause a problem with cars that have a low bumper as our minivan does. Also, we had to purchase some basic supplies such as toilet paper and dish soap.
