About Gary

Hi, I'm Gary and this is my dream home. I built the separate apartment to be my own space when I can't do stairs anymore. Meanwhile it has been used for family or rentals.

Janet and I occupy the upper floor and are available 24/7.

We will be delighted to suggest sites to visit and answer any questions about our beautiful city. And we offer free shuttle to and from airport for our guests as a measure of our gratitude that you chose us for your stay.

Gary purchased this apartment in 7

Why Gary chose Colorado Springs

THE MOST AMAZING VIEW!!! Mountains by day and city lights at night. Photos and video don't do it justice, but everyone who has been a guest here calls it paradise. You will also appreciate the peace and serenity of this mountain paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

Great alternate to the Broadmoor only 5 minutes away, Also very close to Ft. Carson

Gary and Janet's Cliff House was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was warm and welcoming and so were our hosts! Our extended family of 7 all loved this place. The beds were comfortable, kitchen was fully stocked and it felt very private. It was close to all immenities-grocery store, coffee shop, etc. and all Colorado Springs highlights. The real stunner, though, was the incredible views! The mountains were spectacular and city lights at night were gorgeous. Our hosts were very helpful - offering suggestions on the city and surrounding areas. This was the perfect getaway place for us!

Outstanding property and owner

  • 5 of 5

A colleague and I stayed for several days for a convention/trade show being held at the nearby Broadmoor. Gary's home was very comfortable, had all the amenities one needed, and Gary was a very welcoming and a gracious host.

This property was conveniently located to our meeting place and offered a quiet retreat to continue working in the evening, all with a tremendous view of Colorado Springs below. The house is near local shopping and restaurants. Even though the house is in the middle of anything you'd need, its position on a hill overlooking the area gives you a feeling of being secluded and is very peaceful.

We had a great visit and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Most amazing views I have ever seen.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived, we were blown away by the magnificent view of mountains and the entire city. Gary, our host was so nice and made us feel right at home. The apartment was super clean and stocked with everything we could possibly need. But the view is so amazing from every window, we can't imagine finding anything better at any price. Most attractions are 10-20 minutes away and there are 2 supermarkets within a mile.

Don't miss this place or you will be sorry.

We would definitely book again.

Owner's Response: Todd and I hit it off right away. And since we are both docs we could talk a little shop. I hope he comes back in 3 years and I highly recommend him to all hosts. Nice folks!!

Just as beautiful and clean as the pictures show!

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome and quick tour to be sure we knew where everything was and what was available to us made us feel right at home.

Roomy and cozy at the same time. We were a party of four: a couple, a single and a child... We had plenty of space and privacy to get ready and a beautiful, comfortable area to gather near the fireplace.

Beautiful views from the living area and two bedrooms; both with access to step out and enjoy the sunrise. Very clean, and well kept with new furnishings, linens and towels and a well stocked kitchen that has everything you need To prepare a meal. Large closets also keep bedroom free of clutter. And clean bathrooms with lots of counter space.

The transition from the master side to the extended suite is a shared area, but was not an issue in any way.

We would definitely stay here again. The Sherp's were wonderful and we appreciate them opening their home to us. Thank you for your hiking recommendations and gracious hospitality!

Owner's Response: Arlene and her family are among the nicest guests we ever had. And their son IS the most polite child we have had here. They even brought us a chocolate cake! Hope they come back and soon!!!

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. The views were beautiful and the fully furnished kitchen was great. We loved that when we wanted to stay in to make a nice dinner we could relax and have a glass of wine while enjoying the views as well as the warmth of the cozy fireplace. Gary was extremely welcoming and made sure to follow up on second day to make sure we were comfortable and if we needed anything. We would definitely stay here again when we go back to Colorado Springs.

When Kathy Bates wrote "America the Beautiful" she was inspired by the exact scenery that we see in our view. The majestic purple mountains and fruited plains are exactly what you will see from the property. Also of note, the famous entrance to NORAD is visible about a mile from here. Also, 10 minutes from here is Cheyenne Canyon where there are multiple water falls and a drive through high alpine country that is a must see. You can also see the zoo, rated 5th best in the U.S. which is 5 minutes away
