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 house for large family and kids

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of room in this house for 5 adults and 2 children. My girls loved the back yard. Unfortunately we were in town for a wedding and didn't get to relax in the yard as much as we would have liked. It is close to shopping and food and only maybe 10 minutes to the AFA. When we arrived we got a tour of the house. It is very cute and homey and we felt very comfortable. Everyone seemed happy with their bed. I gave four stars instead of five because it appears there was only one roll of paper towels and no napkins. Otherwise it was great and very accommodating.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

The kids (ranging from 2 to 12) loved playing on the trampoline and tree house. There were plenty of board games to keep the kids and adults entertained. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioner kept the entire house cool.

Wonder house. Perfect for USAFA Graduation.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for any gathering, large or small. The location is ideally located near the USAFA, and restaurants are very close by. We enjoyed the view of Pike's Peak from the dining room, and found ourselves stopping as we walked by, just to take in the gorgeous view. Views can be seen from the kitchen as well. This home is multi level, which gave our group of 11 plenty of room to spread out. Everyone commented on how comfortable all the beds were! The homeowners were extremely nice and helpful, and house had everything we could ever need. The welcome basket was a wonderful gesture, and thoroughly enjoyed. I would definitely book this house again, and highly recommend it. Perfect for all USAFA events.

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.
