Why Joshua Fuson chose Black Forest

The views of Pikes Peak are gorgeous. The house is centrally located. to Colorado Springs and Denver. The days are sunny and warm and the nights are cool. Sitting on the front lawn taking in the view, you get the feeling of peacefulness and quiet. This is the perfect get-away location.

What makes this house unique

We LOVE the whole-house water filter system (drink filtered water from any facet) and the FLOOR HEAT in this house andThere is nothing like waking up in the morning and having a warm floor to walk on.

We also love the peaceful, quietness here with beautiful views of the mountain and big blue sky. At night, you can see all the stars because we are shielded from the city lights.

It was a great place for family and friends to before our son’s wedding at Younger Ranch.

  • 5 of 5

This house is comfortable, clean and well equipped for a large group. The views are expansive. We appreciated the large patio with grill and easy to use kitchen. My other nieces found lots of wild flowers and grasses on the property which is fun to explore. Tetherball and the two hammocks were a big hit too. It is a kid and family friendly place with the triple bunk beds and a crib room a bit separated from the other rooms. The kind owner family is easy work with and I was glad to get our needs met through emails. We recommend planning grocery trips ahead of time - it took a while to get to the shops but then again that’s why you choose a country location. Thanks for the hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay.

Our family had a great time and enjoyed the house.

  • 5 of 5

Our three daughters and their families all came to Colorado to spend a week. The house is nice and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved the location as well. The younger children had fun playing outside. Our oldest granddaughter retreated to one of the two hammocks hanging between the trees. The kitchen was well equipped and everyday seasonings were available.

Amazing Views, Peaceful Hide-a-way & Easy Access to The Front Range

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very accommodating. The house was very comfortable and clean. There was plenty of room for privacy from each other as we had 3 different families and cozy enough to allow us to have great gatherings. The house has convenient access to Highway 83, I-25 and roads leading into Monument and surrounding areas. We will use this home again.

A great home for USAFA events

  • 5 of 5

We came for 2017 Parents Weekend with all of our family - aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins. The house accommodated us all and is tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. The house is well stocked with all the amenities that you could use in the kitchen. Plenty of towels, sheets, and comfy beds. Although we didn't use them, there are many children's books, games and DVDs. If I could give you one suggestion it would be to consider replacing the futons. Unfortunately, they are a tad on the firm side and not very comfortable to sleep on. We all loved our stay. Thanks for making our last Parents Weekend a wonderful stress free experience.

Great home for families

  • 4 of 5

This home had lots of room with multiple levels for privacy. Our little boys loved the kid friendly environment with trampoline, toys and bikes. The home is on a large lot in the country about 30 minutes north from downtown Colorado Springs. But we enjoyed being out of the heavy traffic. Great amenities in the house. We loved it. Owners were great to deal with.
