Great Property for Entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group visiting us, and we found this property perfect for the task.

We had so many things to do inside and around the house, we found it very hard to leave.

More than enough space! Multiple beds in each bedroom made it easy for each family to stay together.

The house was just as beautiful as described! Very spacious! The timber room was my favorite- a living room with large windows all around to enjoy the view.

Beautiful property. Friendly & thoughtful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Colorado every summer with a large group of students to attend a youth conference in Colorado Springs. Every year we look for a large, comfortable place to stay to help our students feel like they are not just surviving but are comfortable and on a 'getaway' from our small town in Alaska.

This house was more than we could have asked for! It was BEAUTIFUL. Like really. It was a Pinterest palace (for all you ladies out there, haha!) No but really. This place was gorgeous, comfortable, spacious, and did I say gorgeous? The location was especially good for use since our conference was less than a 10 min drive away.

We would DEFINITELY recommend this property for large families or groups and would DEFINITELY stay here again.

Great Home and Location for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Held a little family reunion in Colorado Springs and the home was wonderful and had plenty of room for our 12 people.

Also conveniently located with quick access to the many sights around the area, (Pikes Peak, Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and the timing of being able to visit the Olympic Training Center right before the Olympics!). Plenty of restaurants and shopping close by also. 1 other feature were the 3 large Bucks that were roaming the neighborhood, in they walked through the backyard one afternoon!! Recommend this home to anyone visiting the Colorado Springs area!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear our home was a great location for your family reunion. It makes us so happy when families are able to come together and enjoy some quality time and make some wonderful memories here. Thrilled you got to see the bucks that come around for a visit from time to time. Our kids are glued to the windows when they show up. We would love to host you and your family again if ever back in Colorado.
