About Laurie & Chuck Garrison

My husband is a retired Army officer. We've lived and traveled all over the world, but we think Colorado tops them all. The cool, dry climate is comfortable year round, the scenic beauty is unparalleled, and the opportunity for outdoor recreation keeps us active. There's so much to see and do within an hour or two drive. We hope you will love our home, it's mountain views and Colorado as much as we do.

Laurie & Chuck Garrison purchased this house in 2009

Why Laurie & Chuck Garrison chose Monument

We bought this property for it's convenient location midway between Colorado Springs and Denver allowing us to enjoy both cities equally. We've tried to make our home comfy and cozy with different areas for different activities...the recreation room with it's pool table, bar, and big screen TV for family time, 2 outdoor decks with mountain views to eat or just relax in the porch swing, a hot tub for after activity relaxation, as well as separate living areas upstairs in case the adults need some separation from the kids.

Unbelievable home, comfort and location!

  • 5 of 5

Chuck and Laurie have a great home. It was large enough to accommodate all our out-of-state families (4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, with one of the bedrooms having 5 twin beds including bunks great for the kids). The home is well kept and couldn't feel more like home with their furnishings and amenities (pool table, hot tub, workout room, theater area in the lower level, even horseshoes and outdoors swings etc.). Great location, @10 minutes from USAFA with a high overlooking view of the Academy from their deck. Laurie was attentive as a host and kept in communication via text and the Home Away app to make sure we had everything we needed. Looking forward to hopefully renting again for out next stay :-).

Beautiful 5-bedroom home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for 4 nights. It was well-stocked, beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. It is close to hiking, and the owners leave a helpful binder full of dining and activity suggestions. I would rent this home again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Laurie and Chuck are wonderful to work with. Their property is beautiful and the home had everything we needed such as toys for our granddaughter, games for the adults, plenty of cookware, spacious rooms, and comfortable beds. The house is in a mountain area with gorgeous views! They have a fire pit which we used to make s'mores. Loved this home and the owners. We would definitely book again!

Thank you,

We loved the spectacular view of the Rockies & the Air Force Academy. If you like listening to the wind rustling through the pine trees while you bask in the sun on the deck, or just want to relax inside a well-built, tastefully decorated home, you will love this place! Our family included 3 couples plus children & we had plenty of room to feel comfortable and pampered. I loved looking at the military memorabilia, and we are ever thankful to Chuck for his service to our beautiful country! I can see why Colorado was his landing spot. We are grateful to the Garrisons for sharing their home! -the Dany's, Newton's & Palm's

Laurie and Chuck have a beautiful home and it was worth the money spent. We had a family of 12 stay here and there was plenty of room for all. The game room downstairs kept everyone entertained after spending the days enjoying Pikes Peak, rafting in Echo Canyon, hiking in the Red Rock Canyon, shopping in Manitou, etc. etc. You also can't beat the view of Pikes Peak from the backyard sitting by the fire pit. Loved it.

We have the perfect location with access to all that both Colorado Springs and Denver have to offer. Drive to the top of Pike's Peak, tour the awe inspiring Garden of the Gods, discover Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the artist village of Manitou Springs, tour the US Olympic Complex, hike & rock hound. We're only 1 1/2 hr. drive to great skiing at Loveland, Breckenridge, Vail etc. In the summer, go white water rafting, or play golf. We have world class restaurants, art galleries and live theater just a few miles away. Come and stay and explore beautiful Colorado!!
