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.

Lauri and Jimmy Armstrong purchased this house in 1965

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 vrbo.com 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!!

USAFA Graduation - Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here for Parent's Weekend, Easter, and now Graduation from USAFA! This house was our home away from home. It had everything we needed for our family, extended family, and friends that visited. Lauri is great to work with. We will definitely stay here again if we make it out for a Falcon football game!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay and not our last! The house is perfect! Lots of amenities, lots of space, and very clean and comfortable. We stay here when visiting our son at the Air Force Academy and really enjoy being able to host his friends for dinner. Looking forward to the next time!

Very clean, nice home and friendly easy to work with owner.

  • 5 of 5

We used this property for a work meeting where 6 people stayed over night and we had up to 14 people during the day for meetings in the basement. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. The home was very nice with all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was very clean and they made sure we had plenty of propane to cook out. Excellent experience! We will use them again!

  • 5 of 5

Lauri is an outstanding host. She was constantly checking to see if we needed anything. The home is everything the listing says it is-spacious, quiet, comfortable and convenient. A great experience.
