Our Tuscan Style home is nestled under majestic Cheyenne Mountain. We are located less than a mile to the Historic Broadmoor Hotel. Our cozy retreat is located in a quiet Southwest Colorado Springs neighborhood under the cool canopy of massive old Oak trees. You will enjoy all the trappings of a large 2400 sq. ft three level duplex. Starting on the Upper level, you will find a very large beautifully decorated Master Bedroom with queen bed. There is a large armoire, three dressers and air conditioning. Off the Master bedroom is a spacious Redwood deck providing beautiful views of Cheyenne Mountain. The Master Bedroom includes a vanity/mirror and sitting area with chic vintage style couch and chair. The second upper level bedroom is furnished with an antique highboy and lowboy chest of drawers with elegant queen sized bed and air conditioning. Main Level finds the Tuscan style dining room, extendable antique table w/leaf and turn of the century Oak sideboard. Fully furnished kitchen with extensive spice collection provides for all your cooking and food prep needs. From the kitchen you see your family and friends lounging on the cozy brown leather couch and love seat taking in the warmth of a real wood fireplace. A 55 inch Flatscreen TV with cable and DVD player satisfies your entertainment needs. The lower level guest bedroom is a true gem decorated in Parisien flair. Beautiful colors and eclectic charm bring the queen size bed and comforter together for a romantic stay. The Lower Level full bath boasts beautiful color and decor. Also, the lower level sports a rec room appointed with Ping Pong table and Rock and Roll memorabilia. A small open office with Executive style desk and futon for two is also located on the lower level.

You are a stone's throw (less than a mile) from the awesome Five Star Broadmoor Hotel and its great restaurants and bars. On the Broadmoor Hotel grounds, we recommend the historic Golden Bee Piano Bar for live music, sandwiches and great pub atmosphere. The Summit , across from the hotel, is a fine place to relax and sip from their extensive wine list. The Tavern Bar inside the Broadmoor proper has a great local live band playing weekends and is a fabulous place for dancing to the oldies.

Within walking distance you'll find Panino's Italian, Joseph's Fine Dining, Coal Mine Dragon Chinese Restaurant, Little Nepal with Cuisine from India, The Borrowing Owl with vegan and beer and Omelettes Etc. for breakfast. AND we have the Smiling Toad Brewing Company with awesome craft beer in the neighborhood within easy walking distance!

In Less than 3 miles, you are in Downtown Colorado Springs with great restaurants and some of the finest views of Pikes Peak. Our home is minutes away from all Colorado Springs has to offer yet you are tucked away in the quietude of our old Southwest neighborhood.

About Amy Yuill

My husband and I have lived in Beautiful Colorado Springs for 24 years. We love experiencing all four seasons of Colorful Colorado Springs. If we aren't on our Harley touring all the amazing cites in Colorado, then we are at home enjoying the sheer beauty of Colorado Springs outdoor activities. Mountain Skiing is our favorite activity together, especially since skiing was our first date! We can't get enough of riding our bicycles with so many awesome bike paths at our disposal, as well as hiking trails where ever you go. Now that we are retired, traveling is our number one passion. Meeting new people, making life long friends, trying new foods, and exploring new places puts a smile on our faces. Life is Good!!!!!!

Enjoyed our Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a great space. I rarely give 5 stars. They really tried to make sure we had everything we needed. All the beds were comfortable, maybe a little soft with the memory foam toppers. The decorating was lovely, felt like we moved into a Shabby Chic page of a Pottery Barn catalog but perhaps just a few too many candles all around. It was monsoon season and while their backyard was well maintained, we stayed inside due to the fear of mosquitos, not much they could do about that. The place is a duplex and they manage both sides, never heard the neighbors at all except for pleasant conversation on shared driveway. While Master bedroom is on-suite with bathroom, it is shared with the other upstairs queen room, and the water temp valves are reversed, which caused a little confusion, but the owners did tell us the issue ahead of time. The 3rd queen is in the basement and then the futon is in an alcove. This basement bath is also shared with the entire basement. They had a ping-pong table and several board games, not that we had any time to play around. The neighborhood is a little quirky but no concerns and easy access to main feeders. There is not a particularly close grocery/convenience store, just had to make sure we hit one on our comings and goings. NBD. Would stay there again, except we would prefer a King bed instead. Owners were very nice and helpful.

Gorgeous home in the perfect location with amazing amenities

  • 5 of 5

A group of three moms and three teenage daughters stayed at Cheyenne Canyon retreat from July 22-27. Amy and Todd were amazing hosts. Amy met us at the home and let us drop off our luggage earlier than check in time so we could go to lunch and site see around town until the house was cleaned and ready for us to check in. There was a welcome sign on the porch with a custom welcome message when we walked up to the front door. I knew right then then the house would be awesome! The house is gorgeously furnished with more amenities than any rental house we have ever rented. The kitchen had everything you would ever need. Fully stocked kitchen, there were all kinds of spices , sugar, flour, tea, coffee , ketchup, mustard , zip locks, etc. The house had many things stocked that in most rental houses you have to go buy. The first floor has a beautiful dining room, kitchen, guest bathroom, and large den comfortable couches with a big screen TV. There is a beautiful back yard with dining table outside and grlll. Up stairs is the master bedroom which is huge with a sitting area, make up area and big screen TV and airconditioning . There is a second bedroom, with airconditioning , that has a queen bed that shares the bathroom with the master bedroom. Downstairs , that is basement level, there is a bedroom with a queen, bathroom and playroom with a futon. Everything is very nice quality with comfortable beds and beautiful bedding. Amy gave us great recommendations for restaurants and we ate at everyone. We would highly recommend Cheyenne Canyon retreat to anyone looking for a gorgeous home to rent.

Very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay!! The condo was conveniently located and Amy was great! We loved spending time on the patio and enjoyed the ping ping table!! Condo was very neat and clean! We wished there was a ceiling light in the dining room, instead of just lamps. It was too dark in there for 6 of us to play cards. But luckily the weather was nice so we played on the patio! Very nice!!

Perfect! Highly recommend!

Thank you so much Amy and Todd!! Your home is beautiful and we felt so at home while we were there. Everything was exceptionally clean and we had everything we needed! We loved the personal touches you provided and it was so nice to meet you. The location was perfect, close to all the hot spots and a super-Walmart was nearby to get groceries and other incidentals.

Watch for our Christmas card in December! Thanks again for a great stay!!

Beyond Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many vacations home, but this one takes the cake. It is amazingly decorated, the amenities were outstanding, everything you would ever need is provided and the back patio is heavenly. Our biggest pet peeve while vacationing, is the beds. While we slept in the Master Bedroom where we found the bed to be extremely comfortable, the bedding to be divine, our friends took the bedroom down stairs are they over slept both days, a true testament to how comfy the beds are.

Amy greeted us on our arrival day, gave us the grand tour of her lovely home, she was very helpful with recommendations, directions and was more than accommodating all weekend. She and her husband were delightful and we look forward to coming back and spending time with them.

A definite " YES WE LOVED IT" from us!
