LUXURIOUS TRANQUIL WOODLAND HOME ON 1 AC FOR FAMILIES/ROMANCE

Larkspur Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY.

Large custom home on 1 wooded acre with spectacular views of (and close access to) the red rocks and wildlife located conveniently between Denver and Colorado Springs. Our home is 45 min from DIA and 40 min from Colorado Springs Airport.

This unique home is great for those who want a quiet location for their family to enjoy or to have a romantic getaway, yet have easy access to the entire Front Range.

You will enjoy the seclusion of the property, the spacious room in the house, large comfortable beds (5 queens), 2 peaceful patios with comfortable furniture, and fun in and outside. You will see abundant wildlife (daily you will see mule deer/black squirrels/chipmunks/hummingbirds, often you will see foxes, and occasionally you will see bears/mountain lions/moose). You will enjoy the ease of preparing meals in the stunning kitchen. The horseshoe pit is popular and many guests enjoy the large screen tvs in either family room and the extensive movie collection. You and your partner will enjoy the double headed shower or the jetted tub in the master bathroom. The basement has recently been finished, adding a bedroom, bathroom, family room area with another tv and pool table, and wet bar.

We rent frequently to families of the Air Force Academy cadets for graduation and parents' weekend. Our summer (and sometimes winter) rentals often are to wedding guests of Spruce Mountain Ranch.

This is a very popular area for road bikers as there are great roads that have low traffic and fabulous scenery. The neighborhood backs up to Pike National Forest, with access to day hiking.

Local attractions include: To the North: Castle Rock Outlet Malls, Denver Elitch Gardens Amusement Park, Colorado History Museum, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Zoo, Denver Natural History Museum, Pepsi Center, Coors Field, Sports Authority at Mile High, Water World (Nation's biggest water park), Wildlife Experience, etc.

Minutes from World Class Golf Course Bear Dance and annual summertime Renaissance Festival.

To the South: Air Force Academy, Garden of Gods, Pikes Peak, Cog Railroad, Cave of the Winds, Cliff Dwellings, Manitou Springs, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Seven Falls, North Pole Amusement Park, Cripple Creek Gambling, Florissant Fossil Beds, Woodland Park, Fort Carson, Colorado Christian University, etc.

This is a totally non-smoking home (both indoors and outdoors). Please do not rent this home if you or anyone in your party is a smoker. There are no situations in which smoking is permitted.

Cats and dogs have been on the property and in the home. This is not an appropriate rental for you if you have allergies.

Our rates are based on a group of 8 or less. Every additional person over 8 is an additional $40 per person per night, regardless of age of person.

We do not allow anyone on the property that is not a registered guest. We do not permit weddings, rehearsal dinners, graduation parties, etc as we do not have parking to support this and our home is in a neighborhood. Our property is under surveillance in common areas.

We purchased this home to have a relaxing, but close, getaway from our work lives in the Denver area. We have really enjoyed the peace and beauty of this property and decided we should share it with others.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Wonderful location nestled in the woods next to Pike National Forest. The house has easy access to both Denver and Colorado Springs, yet is private and quiet.

This is a home where you are relieved of stress. We love our Gourmet kitchen. It is comfortable in the house even during the heat of summer - we usually sleep with our windows open to smell the pine. We do a lot of hiking as we can access Pike National Park from the neighborhood. There is a pond at the front of the neighborhood which we enjoy walking to - there are the largest bullfrogs we have ever seen in the pond. We love walking up to the red rocks behind our property, which is open space, and taking pictures on the rocks and in the woods. It is always exciting to see the bears and foxes wandering around. The road biking is smooth and the traffic is low.

Perfect for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5
This home exceeded our expectations (and we rent through Homeaway on a regular basis). It was extremely clean and well appointed. Lots of little pleasant surprises (like surplus TP which we rarely see). The owner was very helpful and cooperative.

We were here for a wedding at Perry Park Country Club (just 1-1/2 mi away) and were joined by kids, grandkids and my father. Shuttling folks back and forth between the venue and our house was a breeze. Note that, while the home is advertised as 4 BR, it really functions as 5 BR with a queen in the office.

The neighborhood is extremely quiet and peaceful with red rocks right behind the house for the grandkids to explore. We saw deer in the yard every day. The pool table and games got plenty of use. There is a nice library of kids movies as well. Nobody got bored!

Be advised that there is no internet service in the house. The owner makes this clear but you might just assume they have it. It wasn't a problem for us as we were too busy to surf the net and we got good phone/data service thru our Verizon iPhones.

We have already recommended this house to our family in Colorado (even my Dad who is super picky)!

Great base for reunion!

  • 5 of 5
Rented with two other families to base for a family reunion in the mountains. House was excellent, spacious, and well appointed. Kids had the lower level to themselves, and we had plenty of space to spread out and relax. Beautiful home!!! Red Rocks in the back yard were an easy walk to climb and explore and offered a great sunrise viewpoint. Joined by the deer in the woods, made for a great trip!

Happy family of the groom

  • 4 of 5
The home is beautiful and everyone in our group was pleased. The location was perfect for us; close to the wedding venue and right between other events in Denver and in Colorado Springs.

We finally saw the deer on our last morning!

We hope to return when we have more time to explore.

Great house. We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The home was between Denver and Colorado Springs which made it convenient to travel to either city to see the sights. Stayed with other relatives who were also attending a wedding and we all had plenty of room. We saw deer about every morning right outside the front door. The red rocks beside the house were also beautiful and provided an excellent view of the mountains. Would definitely consider staying here again if we travel to this area in the future.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5
A lovely home, large open spaces inside and out. Great owners to work with. Would recommend for all types of stays, including Air Force Academy parent's week and graduation (less than 30 minutes to North Gate) and anyone wishing to get away from the city. We had a very nice stay at the home and hope to be able to do it again. Gary and Dana C. Southern California residents.

Former Colorado Residents Home for Christmas

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about how perfect this home is for vacationing. As former Colorado residents, this was a fabulous Christmas vacation spot! There was more than enough room for the entire family to be together or retreat for some private space. It is a very well equiped home with all the comforts. The deer were amazing to watch. It actually snowed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It could not have been any better for a faamily Christmas!!!
