About Jared & Loretta Slawter

We have been married 25 years and have 2 college age children. We grew up in PA and lived in Colorado for many years. We fell in love with Colorado early on and enjoyed our life there until careers took us back to the East Coast. We are excited to share the beauty of Colorado with all who rent this home!

Jared & Loretta Slawter purchased this house in 2006

Why Jared & Loretta Slawter chose Florissant

We bought the property for the breathtaking views of the mountains and the quiet setting. We currently reside on the East Coast and enjoy coming back to Colorado for the fresh air and the beauty that is Colorado. The hiking and outdoor activities in the area are boundless.

What makes this house unique

We like the location of our property in regard to being in the mountains yet close to Woodland Park and all the surrounding amenities from the ski resorts to the west and Colorado Springs to the east. We have always felt that you can have the best of both worlds in the Florissant/Divide area. And staying here is a wonderful way to relax and recharge your batteries!

Beautiful home with beautiful views!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is even better than the pictures show!! Plenty of room for all five of us with a ton of storage. The master suite is huge!! The kitchen had everything needed for our big family breakfasts. There are a few board games provided as well as decks of cards so plenty of entertainment for us. The deck is amazing! We would sit out there and wait for the deer to arrive, as they did every night. This house has a very private, secluded feel while still being close to town. We chose this place because it was in the center of everything we wanted to do and we couldn’t be happier!! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!! We didn’t want to leave!

Beautiful views! Clean, comforatble cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We originally planned to stay in another BnB, but the place fell through leaving us without a place for our girls weekend. We found this place and quickly booked it. The owners were very responsive thankfully. The place is clean and looks newly remodeled. Beds are comfortable and the master bath is great. I can’t say enough about the views, the place is worth it for just that reason. The only reason I gave it four stars is because I would have loved a fireplace, which it does not have, and the house is not “fully” equipped. Although it does have all the basics, We had to run into town to grab a few things.

Great Home! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. The mountain view is just spectacular from the spacious deck and we saw deer most every day outside in the yard. The inside is just as pictured and is so clean, comfortable and welcoming. After a day of sightseeing and hiking it was so nice to come back and relax in this wonderful home.

Cozy Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout of the house, deck and property. The views off the deck were stunning and all the wildlife was a bonus.The owners were super helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. An added bonus was the well maintained subdivision roads.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed your place! Everything was as advertised and then some. What a view! There was plenty of things to do around the area. We chose the Royal Gorge Route Railroad and the Wolf and wildlife center on separate days to see. But mostly enjoyed staying at the house with my family and enjoying the view on the deck.

Thanks again, Bret Holloway
