Can a place be too nice? Really! What a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was better than expected - and it comes with a great view from the deck. Saw deer the first morning and a bear on the second. Communication/coordination was easy. I would love to stay there again!

Beautiful, relaxing home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. The house is beautiful inside and out, definitely had everything we needed. Jennifer is extremely accommodating to her guests and easy to work with. The views from the back deck of this home are lovely and the neighborhood is quite peaceful. We hope to return!

Amazing stay, yet again!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Peter's home two years ago for our oldest daughter's graduation from USAFA, 2015. It was such a wonderful experience, we decide to book it again for two years later when our second daughter graduated from USAFA, 2017. Just when we thought something could not be perfected, we stood corrected. The Peters did an even more amazing job getting their home ready for us to rent this second time around. Mornings were such a treat for our family as we all gathered in the kitchen/round room area and enjoyed each other's company while having a breathtaking view of Pike's Peak. There was nothing this home did not offer. Proximity to everything was also a plus as we had to go back and forth not only to USAFA, but various grocery stores etc., around the area. Since snow had just fallen days before we arrived, the Peters had potted their flowers, but had not put them out yet. They came super early one morning (they did inform us prior) and put out all the flower pots around the entry of the home. It indeed was beautiful. There were a couple of time I had to get a quick answer to a question we had regarding the home and Jennifer was a simple text away. The reply was very fast and much appreciated. Overall, our family had an amazing experience (two different times) renting this fabulous home. If we ever find ourselves returning to Colorado Springs and need a place to rent, the Peters will definitely be our first call. THANK YOU, Jennifer and Bob. From our family to yours! God Bless you all.

Fabulous USAFA Parents weekend home!

  • 5 of 5

What a privilege it was to be able to stay in such beautiful accommodations for USAFA parents weekend. This home is welcoming, clean and very well appointed. We LOVE this home! This was our second time to stay at this home. We enjoyed playing games in the full basement, having coffee or wine on the upper deck while taking in the view of Pikes Peak. This home is spacious, and very accommodating for a large family or group of people. Thank you again Jennifer for providing a home away from home for us to enjoy with our cadet. My only regret is that we didn't get it reserved for our cadets 2018 graduation. It will be hard to find another home that is as lovely as this one. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Amazing Home for a Family Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Peter's home for our daughter's graduation from Colorado College. It was a short, beautiful drive from Monument to Colorado Springs in which our family was engaged in conversation about the upcoming event for graduation. (My son even took a Urber home one night and it didn't cost too much.)

The home was beautifully furnished and stocked with everything we needed to have a sit down dinner at the big dining room table to sharing pizza on the comfy couches in the basement and watch the hockey and basketball playoffs. We love playing games and the home is well stocked with games. Yahtzee became our "old" time favorite. The upstairs living room was big enough to sit us all and watch my daughter open presents and afterwards we played an intergenerational game! We loved sitting at the high top table in the kitchen drinking coffee in the morning and eating breakfast. The appliances were all in great shape as well as having excellent dishes to serve everything from appetizers to dessert. The bedrooms were comfortable and very roomy. It was great having all the bathrooms for everyone to get ready. The weekend turned out to be very cold and so we were not able to enjoy sitting outside on the deck but we were able to view the mountains from the living room each day. The home was extremely clean and well maintained.If we ever retuned to Colorado Springs we would defiantly stay here again. Thank you Julie and Bob for making this a most memorable weekend by sharing your home with us. We appreciated all the extras you provided for us.

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I stayed here over Thanksgiving week this year. We arrived in the evening, and the lights were on, the Christmas wreath was on the door, a homey holiday scent filled the air, and the whole scene said, "Welcome Home!" There was no detail left untouched, and the owners were friendly and helpful from start to finish. Everyone in my family kept complimenting me on the choice of this place, but I've got to hand it the owners for offering such a great home, with all its amenities, as the backdrop for a wonderful family gathering. We enjoyed our morning coffee looking out at stunning mountain views. I'm not sure who shoveled our walk and driveway after the overnight snowfall, but it was done for us! One can't go wrong with the open floor plan, plenty of seating, a fun game room, comfortable beds, and an all-over gorgeously decorated home.
