8 ACRES MOUNTAIN LIVING IN THE CITY. PRIVATE CLASSIC HOME /AFA

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.

My wife, 3 kids and I stayed at this home for a week early this spring. We had a great time at this property which was in a peaceful location although it was close to some great shopping and a short hop to downtown. When we arrived, the owner mentioned the home was originally owned by the 8th man on the moon. Too cool! We ended up staying home for much of the week because there was so much to do at home. We practiced our putting on the putting green, grilled outside, soaked in the hottub, hiked the extensive property, watched movies in the theater, played billiards ... and on and on. Tons to do. Owner was very accommodating and we didn't feel like we were missing any amenities.

This was my first time utilizing a rental property for a family vacation purpose. I was beyond impressed with the convenient location and beauty of this home. We travelled with our 3 small children and our 2 dogs, the owner made this property very convenient for our usage, rental agreement and home instructions were very detailed and easy to follow. Will definetely be renting again.

We stayed at this lovely home for the week prior to a wedding. The house was spacious, beautiful, and convenient to the Springs. We loved our morning walks to the top of the hill and our time relaxing in the hot tub! The kids enjoyed the putting green, pool table, media room, and the coy pond IN THE HOUSE NEAR THE KITCHEN! We were able to host our extended family for meals at the home and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and serve a large group. Choosing to stay at this house truly enhanced our vacation! Thank you Barry!

SPEECHLESS !!

I can't put into words how to describe this place, but, "FANTASTIC" comes to mind. It had everything we needed and more. We had family fly in to celebrate an early Christmas and Barry had the place beautifully decorated with all the trimmings, lights and a real Christmas tree. He even came by to make sure we had everything we needed and to call him if we needed anything during our stay. The scenery...wow ! It was breathtaking and the grounds are just incredible. We loved taking our morning walks up the mountainside and looking at Pikes Peak. Even saw a couple of Coyotes one morning right in front of the house just walking around. The huge picture windows allowed us to view them just a few feet in front of us. Can't get any closer than that ! We are close to all the attractions, stores, restaurants but yet felt we were miles away from it all while we were at the house. Lets just say, if we ever have another get-together, this is the place for us !
