The cozy fifth bedroom also has a queen size bed. A queen size air mattress is available upon request. Both full bathrooms are newly renovated, including a large Roman walk-in shower with dual shower heads in the basement bath. The home sleeps 10-12.

About Lauri and Jimmy Armstrong

As a 4th generation Colorado Springs native, our roots are deep in the Pikes Peak region. This home has been in my family for over 50 years, and we take great pride in making it as special for you as it is for us. The home became ours in 2012 and we began the process of completely renovated it, which was finished in 2013. We use vacation rentals when we travel, with our small children, and large extended family, so we provide the same experience we expect when we travel. We will go above and beyond your expectations! Join us for your next vacation.

Large Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience in Colorado Springs staying at Laurie's home! Everything you could possible want was available at her beautiful home. We had 8 adults and 4 children stay in the home and found it to be very roomy with 5 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths! We loved the hot tub and the backyard deck was wonderful to spend evenings hanging out in. Great location and was only 12-15 minutes away from Garden of the Gods, Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. Convenient to grocery shopping and several local restaurants. Laurie went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and was very responsive to any questions we had. We highly recommend staying at this home.

Fantastic property perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of 12 people and we fit just great in this property. We were very centrally located to all the activities that we wanted to do. Cave of the winds, shopping, pikes peak, and just a hour drive down to do white water rafting! The outdoor patio and hot tub were by far the biggest hits! It was a great shaded area with plenty of seating. The only thing I can say is we WAY over packed with all the amenities provided in the home, we were way over prepared and didn't even need most of what we packed! Having 2.5 bathrooms is also super helpful with a large group! The owner was so pleasant and great to work with and even checked in to make sure we didn't need anything! We were 1st time users of and I can say we are sold. I hope all our future vacation rentals go this well! Thanks again Lauri and Family for the use of your beautiful home, we didn't want to leave!!
