Guestbook comments from the owner

Great set-up for our group, including three sets of couples, a single and six grandchildren. Choice location, accessible to all the front range has to offer. Accommodating hosts, even had a welcoming snack and wine offering! Backyard, deck and multiple levels offering places to play and converse. Highly recommended.

Great place for family time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Flannery home during our stay in Colorado Springs for my son's wedding. We were able to have extended family stay together and all were very comfortable. The house was clean and inviting. We were close to the Academy, shops, restaurants, and attractions. We felt so welcome and at home.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this house. It was in a great location. Easy to get to and close to all the tourist attractions. Most within 30 minutes or less. The house was roomy for our 4 families. Had a great play area for the kids while the adults visited on the multi-tier deck. Had all the amenities we needed and felt llike home. Also had a view of Pike'S peak from kitchen/dining room windows. We would definitely stay here again. Owners were extremely nice too.

Colorado Springs Summer 2016

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we hoped for and the owner was more than helpful walking us through the house and its operation. With 9 people, we had enough room for everyone and the lower level was great for two parents and their 3 kids. The 2 decks and backyard served us well for a casual wedding rehearsal dinner location of about 30. It is centrally located and easy access to AF Academy (location of the wedding) and one of the best Zoo's we have visited (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo). Great hiking trails available within 20-30 minutes.

Spacious, flexible, accommodating house, great location, and bonus backyard for kids of all ages.

  • 5 of 5

The host was attentive and thoughtful. Large space helped our large group [more young kids than adults!] feel "at home" when we weren't scouting out the many trails, sights and excursions available in this great location. five stars.

Awesome USAFA Graduation Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for one week. We used every room, had an open house one night, close to all events, comfortable for entertaining, relaxing and the BEST view of Pikes Peak each morning. We saw a hawk in the back yard one morning, breakfast and dinner on the deck. Loved the 3 level layout. The home was clean, owners were very accommodating with needs! I highly recommend this home for your stay! Thank you!!

Had a wonderful stay at this house. It was close to our daughters place. We had 12 in our group and plenty of space for us to be. We really enjoyed the deck and the kids loved the play ground. We even got to see 3 buck deer one morning. Very clean and felt like home.
