About Cindy Pierce
John is a retired school teacher who keeps busy in the real estate business these days. After years of teaching and daycare, Cindy keeps busy helping with the real estate and the grand kid business! We both grew up in Iowa, but have lived in Colorado since 1975. Neither one of us could ever imagine living any where else!
Cindy Pierce purchased this House in 1993
Why Cindy Pierce chose Black Forest
We have lived at this property for 25 years, along with our 6 children who are all grown now. We've had so many fun times and made some wonderful memories with extended family and friends over the years. In fact, it was when my brother and family visited earlier this summer that my sister in law suggested we look into sharing our "little bit of heaven" in the country on VRBO.

The house was spotless. Was everything we could hope for!
We pulled in and met Cindy, she showed us around the house, made us feel like we were at home. The kids of course loved the zip line set up, but it was the ping pong that really had them going. The one thing that made me nervous was the house does not have A/C, but to my surprize we were very comfortable. We would defiantly stay there again!
Wedding in Monument
This house was great. We had 6 adults, 2 kids and a dog and had plenty of room. The downstairs was filled with kids toys thanks to the owners previous life as a teacher.
The location is nice and relaxing and deep in the Black Forest area.
Perfect! Home away from home.
Again, perfect experience from start to finish. Cindy was there to greet us on arrival to give us a quick tour. She definitely made my family feel welcome at her home. The house provided everything we needed, open space for our large group to gather together yet room for everyone to have privacy when needed. There were family photos all over the house, which meant to me that John and Cindy truly have their priorities in order and that allowed me to be comfortable allowing my family to use their home as our own. The kids (big and small) loved the zipline and outdoor activities. After arriving home, Cindy even mailed an item to me that we had accidently left behind. I would definitely recommend this property as it was everything it said it would be plus more!
Perfect place for our Cadet and family to relax
Tons of room for activities. All the convenience and comforts of home. Thanks Cindy
The house was very comfortable and well equipped and we had plenty of room to host a large party of family and friends for a BBQ on the covered patio. The kids loved the zip line and trampoline. We loved sitting at the table drinking coffee and watching the birds on the feeders.
My only niggle is that the photos make the house look as if it is secluded whereas it borders the parking lot for a nearby church. Not a problem for our short stay (and provided extra parking for some of our visitors!) but not quite what we expected.
This was a great experience for our entire family. Great location and all the amenities needed.
Kids enjoyed the zip line a lot and were on it every day. Ping pong table and basketball hoop were nice to have. The house was perfect for us and we recommend this property to all. Would definitely stay again. Thanks to all the information and assistance from Cindy. You have a great property. Many thanks for sharing your home with us.
