Colorado Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 5-12)

I would love to welcome you to our stunning home with your own private 8 acres! Located in just the right spot, allowing you to explore, experience and enjoy all the wonderful wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer. Our location of Colorado Springs Co 80919 gives you mountain living while being close to all the city aspects you could need. We purchased our home in 2000 and have enjoyed it every day. It has been cherished by not only my family but from many others and historical figures as well. We have enjoyed this home for many years and would love for you enjoy it just as much. My children have now grown up, they are moving on and out to bigger and better things leaving my gorgeous home empty. I would love to have my home adored and treasured by other families so they can experience the immeasurable memories it has brought my own.

We offer 5 bedrooms, 4 and a half baths, as well a sleeper sofa in the family room. Additionally, you will have access to free Wi-Fi in all areas of our home or enjoy working in the private office. A complete kitchen, large pantry and dining room are perfect for entertaining family dinners . A 73 inch flat screen TV, surround sound, and Play Station 3 console are located in our theater room, complete with separate kitchen, back door and full bathroom. Family room includes wood fireplace while the living room is lined with large windows to enjoy the view. The master bedroom is located on the main floor while four smaller bedrooms are located in the furnished walkout basement. Additionally for billiards lovers the pool table is in the basement as well as a steam shower sauna. Almost completely wrapping the house there are three separate decks for enjoying the sunny summer weather. Back deck is equipped with a four person hot tub while the other decks are fully furnished to relax and savor the day. If you would like some outside entertainment, we have a propane grill, putting green, woods for hiking, room for Frisbee golf , horse shoe pit, and a small cabin located along the hiking trail which provides a excellent view of Pikes Peak. Our three car garage can store your vehicles, and bikes. Our long driveway is far from the road to keep our location secluded and keep away from that city living feeling.

We have a convenient location that gives us mountain living but still close to everything you need! Plenty of different shopping centers are available nearby, while there are endless restaurants and a wide variety of night life activities. Some wonderful Colorado Spring attractions included Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Pikes Peak, Air Force Academy, and so much more.

I would love for you to come and stay at my home to create life long memories in Colorado Springs. You do not need to be stuck in a hotel when I would be more than happy to have you in my home where you can spread out, be worry free, experience what Colorado Springs has to offer.

Our families had such a great time at this house!

  • 5 of 5
Wish we could have stayed longer! Kids and adults all had great time. Location was outstanding for the activities we wanted. House was large enough and much cozier than hotels/resorts. AND so much to do without leaving the house and "back yard"! Kids had a ball and want to go back already. We adults could actually relax!!
LOVED IT!

This home worked perfectly for our family and very close to AFA to visit our cadet. Great facilities indoor & outdoor, plenty of outdoor decking to enjoy the weather. The hiking area was an added treat!

Family trip

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great time at this very unique house. There was lots and lots of room to spread out. The house has wonderful outdoor space as well. It was well equipped and everyone was very comfortable. It really was secluded and yet just around the corner to the city. Barry was very easy to work with.

Magnificient House and Land

  • 5 of 5
The house was 4,300 square feet of magnificence. It had five bedrooms, three living/recreational areas, 4 and ½ bathrooms, two kitchens and a wrap around patio with a hot tub, grill and lots of outdoor furniture to lounge on as well as a three car garage. It sat on the side of a hill on 8 acres. You could see no signs of civilization unless you climbed to the top of the hill and looked out over the city. It was treed and over a quarter of a mile of freshly-concreted, curvy driveway down to the main road. It was like being in the country while still only being about a mile from the supermarket and town. The feature my wife liked most was the theater room. It featured a 73 inch TV with surround sound, as well as a saxophone, drums including a cymbal, a guitar and a organ if you were so inclined. I thought I had lost my wife to that room forever. I’ve never seen so much “Law and Order.” The kids took the room away from her a couple of times to watch the World Cup, and took it from her once again to watch the movie, “The Avengers.” The hulk was huge and green on that big screen.. Do you know how badly the Germans beat the South American team? The answer, “by a Brazillion.” Up behind the house was a putting green, horse shoe pits and a cabin so high on the hill that you could not see it from the house. The land behind the house was loaded with those big, red flat topped boulders similar to the ones you see in the Garden of the Gods. And from my point of view the price was right. My share was $80.00 a night which is about the same as a half decent motel room costs these days. There was one curious feature to the house that we had not anticipated. I learned that after I called the owner to tell him the AC was not working in part of the house. He refused to install another unit that afternoon just to accommodate some spoiled folks from Texas. Actually, I met Barry and he was a likeable, mild-mannered rich guy of some sort. The kitchen, dining room and living areas and the master bedroom (which I shared with my wife) on the upper floor of the house were air conditioned. The 4 bedrooms and the rec room on the lower level were not air conditioned, but the kids said sleeping was not too uncomfortable. It did get down in the 60s at night and their 90 during the day was not even close to our 90 here in Dallas. Less sweating I mean. We all very much enjoyed the house. We ate sumptuous meals there, played dominoes, shot rockets high in the sky,
