About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Mountain and City views! 1/4 size basketball court

Welcome to beautiful Colorado! We invite you to take in the exceptional (unobstructed) Rocky Mountain views and the cityscape of Northern Colorado Springs that our home has to offer. There are many charming and decorative rooms with an array of colors, which flow throughout. You will find the atmosphere to be warm, peaceful and relaxing.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. Start your morning with a cup of coffee, as well as reading a good book in the spectacular “view room" observing the gorgeous mountains. Next, enjoy breakfast on the large (500 sq. ft.) back deck while taking in the fresh Colorado air and breathtaking views. After breakfast you may want to visit the "Garden of the Gods" park, which is only thirteen miles away. Head back to the house for a barbecue lunch on the deck. A grill, picnic table and chairs are available to you. The deck includes a water fountain, which adds to the outdoor ambiance. Included in our backyard is a quarter size basketball court and sandbox for your convenience. Work off your lunch by taking a walk to the neighborhood pond.

Before dinner take a short drive to the mountainside. The city views get better the higher up you go. Then enjoy a nice meal at our charming and formal dining room table. Afterwards move to the deck for coffee and dessert. As dusk settles and the sun drops behind the mountains, giving way to jaw dropping sights, light the fire pit and take in dazzling city night lights. Wind up your evening with a movie and popcorn in our family room. Take advantage of the brick gas fireplace. Or relax by soaking in the master suite garden tub.

Complete your day with a restful night sleep in one of the four comfortable bedrooms. We pride ourselves in providing an exceptionally clean environment; therefore you will receive superb cleanliness. We use natural/organic hand soap in all bathrooms and the kitchen.

VRBO has now provided a great platform to showcase our home, which gives us an opportunity to share our house with many others looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation getaway.

We invite you to experience our warm and lovely house with the magnificent view. It is uniquely situated on a hill in a quiet (family oriented) neighborhood. Within a short drive are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers and movie theaters. The Air Force Academy (south gate) is only 2.5 miles from here. We believe you will be taken in by the beautiful mountain views and our lovely, decorative, house.

Thank you for viewing our home!

About Ysela Erwin

I was born and raised in Texas, and eventually made my way to California where I met my husband. We left the beaches for the beautiful Colorado Rockies. We enjoy hiking, traveling, cooking, reading, road trips, walks. We have been involved in many outreaches in San Diego and in the Springs. We love meeting people from all over the nation.

Ysela Erwin purchased this house in 2008

Why Ysela Erwin chose Briargate

We desired a home with a view. When we walked into the deck, we knew it was the house we had prayed for. We have built wonderful memories with our family and friends, and expect that those who vacation here, will have the same experience.

What makes this house unique

Our house is positioned on a hill within a peaceful, safe, quiet neighborhood. The views are spectacular! There are walking paths which connect throughout surrounding neighborhoods. You will experience beautiful sunrises and sunsets. One will have a new appreciation for the song “America the Beautiful,” which lyrics were written by Katherine Bates in 1893 after visiting this city. The lyrics, “Purple Mountain Majesty,” will have a whole new meaning to those who visit. Because of the love and pride by which we decorated our home, we hope it is at the top of your seasonal rental list.

We had a wonderful stay in Colorado Springs. Ysela was so helpful in the whole process and we certainly felt at home. We had everything there that you could ask for, well kept and so comfortable. I'd definitely go back!

The home was outstanding furnishings were elegant and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean. The owners were fantastic to work with, very accommodating. We were there for my daughters wedding and everything was so perfect. We barbecued 1/2 the time which made our stay so relaxing. The MBR was so large the Bride and her brides maids had their hair and makeup professionally done in the comfort of the home. They stocked the home with plenty of everything and we were so pleased. The neighbors were great to interact with as well. There was a booklet loaded with recommendations to eat, visit, and information for our safety. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with the lit fire pit and the city lights in the backdrop. They thought of everything, they were truly concerned about our experience in their home. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Our family will always be greatful and if we need to stay in Colorado Springs again we will be in touch. Truly caring owners. They have my gratitude and thanks. we will never forget the experience.

The house was amazing. There were 8 of us and we all agreed that we had plenty of room. Our hostess was great if we needed anything she was always easy to get ahold of and help us. I would recommend her home to anyone. The Gonzalez family

Great family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 2 nights to meet family, friends and to attend a wedding. The house is amazing. Everything we needed was available. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes .........very nice. The house was immaculate, bedrooms and bathrooms very nice with plenty of linens for all. Ysela met us to let is in and explained some things about the house to us then left however she did check on us about 24 hrs later to make sure everything was going well. The outside area is wonderful for kids and adults. There is a sand box that our grandson loved, a 1/4 basketball court and the deck is wonderful with plenty of comfortable seating. We would definitely stay at this property again
