Chad Bowman purchased this house in 2007
The Colorful Colorado home was built in the Centennial Heights neighborhood in 1959. With wide streets, mature trees, large green lawns, long driveways, and large rectangular ranch style homes. It has all the charm and simplicity of the era, but is centrally located to all of the fun!
See more! Do more! Make the most of your vacation without wasting time driving long distances to all corners of the city. We are the ONLY VRBO near Palmer Park, and central to everything else! Feel like taking it easy? Stay in and watch a 3D movie relaxing on our leather sectional. Or take a walk to the trails in Palmer Park, right behind our house! We have many guests tell us how much they enjoy the natural wildlife our VRBO has! From several deer, birds, and squirrels that visit our property daily to seeing the elusive black squirrel right in our VRBO's backyard! Serenity in the heart of the city.
Apart from convenience, a quiet neighborhood, and an open floor plan that provides easy family fun; our home is priced to be family friendly while providing all of the luxuries you would expect at nicer hotels.
Our dine-in kitchen makes it perfect for planning the next day's events over a home cooked meal, and make a perfect setting for retelling the day's excitement!
Jill and Chad,
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We enjoyed how well stocked the kitchen was, and how nicely you have decorated, plus the mattresses were so comfy! Also, all the instructions were all so clear, handy, and helpful.
P.S. We appreciated all the scriptures!
We are centrally located to everything in Colorado Springs. From visiting the world's only mountain zoo: Cheyenne Mt. Zoo, to touring the natural splendor of Garden of the Gods, to driving all the way to the top of Pikes Peak for an unforgettable view; we are several minutes from these top tourist destinations.
