Great house for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Violets were very friendly and helpful. The house met our needs well. It was clean and looked nice. The view of Pikes Peak was lovely. They had a binder with lots of restaurant and activity suggestions which was nice. The beds were comfortable and even the small kitchenette worked for us. The induction hot plate was great for making eggs in the morning. Would stay here again for sure!

Clean, comfortable and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in excellent condition. It was in a nice, quiet neighborhood and it was a very good place to stay. The king and queen beds were great! We had a very enjoyable trip and it was a good decision to stay there rather than a hotel.

A Great Place To Stay!

This is a wonderful place to stay. It's in a great location. It's close to the Air Force Academy and Garden of the Gods, but also in a nestled in a great neighborhood with an amazing view of Pike's Peak. This property is well maintained with many wonderful amenities! The property managers, Michael and Violetta were wonderful hosts. If we're ever in the Colorado Springs area again, we'll plan to return here!

Bella Vista - Very clean, quiet, comfortable, well appointed. Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely return to Bella Vista! Depending on your needs, it is in a very convenient location with many amenities nearby. The two bedrooms with very comfortable beds (1 king, 1 queen) were perfect for us and our teenage son; additionally, there are bunk beds in the queen room if you have more children. The place was very clean and very quiet. We had everything we needed (kitchen appliances/ dishes/glasses, washer/dryer with detergent, television). The kitchenette was perfect for breakfast, a simple dinner, or leftovers from a restaurant (we usually picnicked or ate out for lunch).

Violeta and Michael were excellent hosts. They had some good suggestions for our stay. They were available for questions, but respected our privacy. Kudos to them!

The icing on the cake, the title is accurate - a great view of Pike's Peak!

Knowing that we will be returning to the area, we definitely hope to be able to stay here again!

Our Favorite Sightseeing Itineraries:

Colorado-All-The-Way:

Grab a hearty breakfast at The Till (one mile away and voted Best Restaurant in Colorado Springs) and head on out to Pikes Peak. Bring snacks, water, and a jacket with you in the car. Drive to the top and have their famous doughnuts. Next walk around Manitou Springs and have an al fresco lunch at the Cliff House. Be sure to taste some of the natural spring water at the various fountains in Manitou. Drive over to Garden of the Gods and walk the paved trail from the large parking lot. Enjoy a snack and drink at the visitor center, being sure to sit outside on the patio which has a stunning view of the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak.

Animals, Views, and Luxury:

Visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, being sure to have a snack and drink at the small café across from the children’s playground—best views in town. Go on the sky ride after you have walked around the zoo — you will enjoy resting your legs and watching the scenery. Next take your zoo ticket and use it to drive through the zoo to Will Rogers Shrine. Think: Unbelievable views and interesting. Have lunch at the Golden Bee, an authentic old pub that was actually transported here from England. Next drive to the 5-Star Broadmoor Resort and walk around their lake, enjoying the lovely grounds. Visit the free carriage museum. On the way back to the apartment, stop at the Air Force Academy’s visitor center. Don’t miss the chapel—it’s stunning.

*************************************

Our Favorite Hikes:

Mount Cutler Trail:

We like the Mount Cutler Trail because it's a fairly easy short hike and is an actual named mountain, thus, you get to honestly claim that you have climbed a mountain. It's popular with families and is a good first hike for someone visiting. You even get a view of Seven Falls for free.

Directions: Driving south on I-25 take exit 140 Tejon street to W Cheyenne Blvd. Follow it all the way until you reach the Starsmore Discovery Center where you keep right and enter the canyon. Parking lot is on the left side after 1.5 miles.

Santa Fe Trail:

This trail runs all the way through Colorado Springs, the Air Force Academy, and Palmer Lake. It’s a great biking trail and it’s fun to bike through the Academy and watch the parachutists in the sky. Bike in Monument toward Palmer Lake and stop at restaurants and ice cream shops.
