ROCKY MOUNTAIN RETREAT: MTN VIEW, LOCATION, PIKE NAT'L FOREST

Colorado Springs Chalet Rental Photos and Description

A beautiful mountain home with a view in a great location; sleeps 2--10

ROCKY MOUNTAIN RETREAT is a beautiful mountain property in a great location: just 10 miles to Colorado Springs, 8 miles to historic Manitou Springs and 5 miles to Woodland Park. Great community offers wonderful local restaurants less than a mile away (you can walk there for lunch), a community pool, a park with a lake and a fountain in the middle of it and a playground for kids.

There is a clearing in front of the house. You could see wildlife there almost every morning and at sunset. We saw deer, foxes, squirrels, beautiful birds, elks, etc...

Relax with a glass of wine on the patio or a cup of coffee in the morning and let natural scenery unfold its beauty...

We have 3 BEDROOMS/2 BATHROOMS available for you:

- Queen/full size futon in the basement for an additional sleeping place if needed.

2 brand new refrigerators, a front load high efficiency (please use HE detergent only!) washer and dryer and much more..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a cute, cozy place with a breathtaking view of the mountains! Seven of my friends and I stayed for 3 days and we loved it! It's not very big but it definitely did the trick with no complications at all (with 8 people). We were in driving distance from a couple towns with restaurants and shops so we got to enjoy the beautiful nature and the hot spots.

A Wonderful Retreat, Great Location and Views

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Rocky Mountain Retreat this year. The house was as described, great beds and mattresses, everyone had a good sleep every night including grandparents... Kids loved the bunkbeds and toys, books and movies available at the property. We had most of our breakfasts at the property on the deck. We had lunches on the lake less than a mile away from the house, a short walk along the Fountain Creek. Kids had a good time on the playground by the lake. There is a community heated pool nearby. It was not big, but good enough for our children. We did a lot of sighseeing and visited Santa's Workshop amusement park a few miles away. Lots of fun!
We enjoyed s'mores around the firepit on the deck and had a BBQ night a couple of times.

Our family is very greatful and will be happy to stay here again and visit this wonderful area again next year.

Great Location; Accommodations Fair

  • 2 of 5
Property as described. Lots to do in the area. Vacationed with 9 and did well.
A few comments: Limited cell service. Outdoor property un-kept and not mowed. General supplies, trash bags, dishwasher and laundry soap very limited. Renters beware: owners may and did keep $ from deposit for baths not clean (untrue). We left the property as per the contract. No recourse; at owners mercy.

Owner's Response: The property was surrendered in unacceptable condition.
A very small amount (1/10) of the deposit was withheld to compensate for cleaning services.
We cannot provide supplies for 9 guests for one week. We mow the grass once or twice a month.

Wonderful Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting the Colorado Springs area. As far as accommodations, it is exactly portrait on line as it is in person. If you are looking for a cozy home within minutes of many attractions, this is the place to stay. There also a ton of hiking trails near by. My in-laws joined us for the trip, 7 of us were very comfortable, there was room for two more.

Upon arrival our home was clean and ready for us. We only had to call to get assistance with the lock box, otherwise Julia was wonderful to work with. She was always quick with a response to our questions and we received our full safety deposit back within a week of our stay.

We saw wildlife right from the front porch many mornings and evenings, Green Mountain Falls is only a 15 min walk with a neat play area for little ones. Woodland park is a 15 min drive north with everything you need to make your stay comfortable.

I recommend this areas for a wonderful family vacation and this place for your family to stay.

Great cabin in great location!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 7 stayed here. We had plenty of room. The listing for this home is just as described plus more. The kitchen was fully stocked. My kids enjoyed the basement area with toys and vhs movies. Everything was clean. The beds were comfortable. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. I enjoyed the fact that everything was pretty close to the house. We enjoyed Pike's Peak, Manitou Spring's downtown area, Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. So much more to do there but until next time!

Fall family holiday at a great location and clean, updated mountain home

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was very good for a large, multi-generational family. We loved sitting of the deck, looking out at the mountains. The location was great--close to stores and cafés but not in town. Lots of nearby activities for kids. We walked a nearby trail daily. We loved getting up to Pikes Peak, to the Garden of the Gods and the Cliff Dwellings, all very close. Julia was very accommodating to us at the last minute.

Amazing family vacation in Colorado Springs

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our three kids (under the age of 5) had a wonderful time at this cabin in Colorado Springs! Julia is great and she is always available if you have any questions. She is great to work with and the cabin was spotless when we arrived. The kids had toys to play with and that made the trip wonderful and entertaining! We will for sure stay in this cabin again! xoxo
