Colorado Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House with 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Beds, 2 Baths -- Sleeps up to 8

We call our home the Rainbow Vista House because of the countless double, and even triple, rainbow sightings! The house sits at a unique angle allowing for rainbow sightings after short rainstorms in the spring, summer, and autumn. We hope you are fortunate to see a rainbow during your stay!

Centrally located near all of the area’s major attractions, the Rainbow Vista House is situated in the foothills of Colorado Springs, just 2 miles from the Broadmoor Hotel and Golf Course. We are only minutes from the desirable tourist and shopping districts of Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. You can explore charming downtown Colorado Springs, which is an easy 10 minute drive from the house. Also nearby is the Colorado Springs Zoo! It has the highest elevation of any zoo in the U.S. Visit the spectacular Garden of the Gods Nature Center to experience the wonder of the outdoors. Many of the major Colorado ski resorts can be reached by car in about 2 hours. We are 25 minutes to Colorado Springs airport, and 1 hour and 20 minutes from Denver International airport.

Our home sits atop a hill with both city and mountain views. These views can be enjoyed any time of year—from the inside through spacious windows and from the large outdoor decks. During the day you can relax indoors or outdoors while marveling at the spectacular views of the mountains and plains in the distance. At nighttime enjoy the sparkle of the city lights below in the valley to the east.

We provide all-weather tables and chairs for you to gather around with your family, as well as propane BBQ on the east-facing deck, which is a great place to watch evening lightning storms! The upstairs back deck offers a western view of the mountains, pristine hot tub, redwood picnic table, and propane BBQ. The downstairs fountain attracts deer and wildlife during all seasons.

The inside of the Rainbow Vista House is bright and spacious and offers a comfortable, laid back style inviting you to relax. With 1,500 square feet of comfort, our home provides a living room, family room and spacious kitchen.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master suite includes a king size bed and private bathroom. The other two bedrooms offer a queen size bed and a double bed. We offer a sleeper sofa and 2 high-quality air mattresses for larger parties.

The living room has large picture windows with east facing city views. In addition to the living room there is a large family/TV room with sleeper sofa.

We have a Wii Sport set up for multiple users. This provides another outlet for group fun and connection.

Additional amenities include a large and open eat-in kitchen loaded with all the tools you will need to create memorable family feasts. The kitchen features ample counter and cupboard space as well as a double oven.

Other features include a washer and dryer, off-street parking, 60” HD Television and DVD, free Wi-Fi, an elliptical exercise machine, clock radios, coffee maker, iron, hairdryer, and much more!

In the winter, or on a cool summer night enjoy the warmth of the Napoleon wood stove in the upstairs living room or the beautiful brick fireplace in the downstairs area. We provide a bundle of seasoned wood to accommodate your needs.

About Catherine

This is a recent picture of us taken at Garden of the Gods Park. We love the Colorado Springs area. We are avid hikers and love to go for long bicycle rides.

Catherine purchased this house in 1995

Why Catherine chose Colorado Springs

The nature, views and natural scenery around Colorado Springs are unparalleled anywhere in the world. We moved here to be close to the mountains, in a small vibrant city with lots of sunshine and character. Our experience here was so deeply touching that we could never forget the beauty of Colorado. We wish for you the same experience.

What makes this house unique

Our home is one that large groups fall in love with! It is the perfect destinations for multiple generations to gather and connect. There are 2 outdoor seating areas where guests can relax, talk and watch sunsets, rainbows when available, city lights on one side and mountain views on the other. We have a basketball area, a Wii sports set up for multiple users, and lots of board games. We have a hot tub, 2 living rooms, one with fireplace and the other with a wood stove. We have an elliptical exercise machine and lots of nearby hiking. Families of deer frequent the property during all seasons making the bucks, does, and fawns our constant companions. The Rainbow Vista House helps us feel closer to nature and brings rest and relaxation!

The Perfect Anniversary Present

  • 4 of 5
We wanted to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with a gift to our family. We needed an abundance of activities to entertain all ages...so we chose Colorado Springs. Everyone was free to do whatever they wanted...with two stipulations.
#1 We eat breakfast and dinner together everyday.
#2 Take lots of pictures to share
Funny...but it turned out we all wanted to do most of the same tours: Cave of the Winds (some zip lined), Cliff Dwellings and shopping at Manitou Springs, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (voted the best zoo ever by all), Will Rogers Shrine and Museum, Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods. Some went to Pikes Peak, Helen Hunt Falls, White Water Rafting and Cripple Creek.
The only problem we had was the gas tank on the grill ran out of gas. We called and they delivered two tanks the following day.
The 'Rainbow House' provided everything they had promised...including the rainbows! On two different days we saw rainbows with one day having a double rainbow. We saw the full moon on Friday the 13th. Mule deer greeted us every day and posed so graciously for our pictures...and even drank from the wild-life pond on the lower level. We enjoyed the view from both decks and the porch swing was everyone's favorite place to relax. The home was spacious and perfect for our group of 12.
Tons of great memories! I can still picture the sparkle of the night lights of Colorado Springs. We saw and experienced more in one week than we ever dreamed possible. We loved it all!
To complete our vacation story...I have put all the pictures and movies into a slide show and gave copies to everyone. We can re-live our vacation whenever we choose :)
This isn't the end of our story ... the BEST is yet to be!

This place was perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5
We rented this facility to accommodate our family and the groomsmen in our son's wedding. There were plenty of beds and sleeping options. There was plenty of bedding and towels. Everything was very very clean. The kitchen was well stocked. There were even some food items there which I had not expected. It was spacious and when the guys wanted to stay up late and be noisy they could go to the basement. An extra added bonus was seeing the deer every morning.

Great House, Great Management!

  • 5 of 5
Clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced considering its size and all you get. Well stocked kitchen and laundry, all bathrooms have shower dispensers filled with shampoo, conditioner and bath gel, saw at least one blow dryer. Had small maintenance problem first day and management came right over and fixed it. No other problem after that. Questions answered quickly, things labeled throughout house with instructions for operating them. First day we were greeted by deer just beyond the deck! Great views day and night. Would love to come back one day.

Clean, comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5
I, a daughter & family, and a son & family, had a great stay in the Rainbow Vista house while attending a granddaughter's wedding at the Air Force Academy Chapel. We found it to be very comfortable, clean, and well organized for convenience, and close to stores and other activities we participated in. The children and young people enjoyed the TV/game room. We enjoyed the views, the mountains one way, and the city the other way. We were visited by five or six deer the first day.
