AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazingly beautiful, clean, neat, comfortable, peaceful, relaxing. And I just wish I could stay in this house!! If you read below at our review from last year you will understand why is say this. Our girls sure enjoy this house. Plenty of space and comforts for everyone. This house is part of the reason that we have so many kids attending this youth conference. There is an all out battle to see who gets to stay at this house so the girls group and boys group rally each other in a battle for the "mansion" (Guys lost again). This house really is amazing it is plenty big for large families, groups, and small enough for a get away with your spouse. If you are going considering other properties please stop doing that and get on the phone with carol and reserve this property. You will be more then satisfied.
Thank you Carol
The recruiting begins!!!

BIG GROUP WITH MORE THAN ENOUGH COMFORTABLE SPACE

  • 5 of 5
We decided to stay here when my extended family flew in to visit our new born kids. What a great decision! This house had it all. Amazing outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing and more than enough space for 15 people to stretch their legs, never feel cramped, and always feel comfortable. We played a ton of ping pong and basketball and utilized the beautiful outdoor spaces every minute we could. The property is in a great spot to access the USAF and other co springs hot spots and was easy to find when traveling from Denver. I would highly recommend this as an option for any family get togethers.

PRIVACY AND BEAUTIFUL VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
It was so nice to come back to this beautiful property after sightseeing. The large lot and mountaintop views were spectacular. It was great to feel like we had our own retreat. Everything was well stocked and suited our needs perfectly! The large couch in the basement was big enough for the whole family to gather for a movie... Same with the big dining room table at meal times. The location was great - close to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. It was a wonderful experience!

DELIGHTFUL VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
WOW! Not only is this a fantastic house to take a large family to, it comes with a hostess that is thoughtful and helpful far beyond her line of duty. Due to travel issues we were left stranded some distance from the house, with no way to get to our rental cars or make the meeting to get into our house. When I text Carol that we were having problems and wanted to make sure she didn't show up to meet us at the house at the planned time, she went into action trying to come up with a plan to get us there. It ended up she drove approximately 45 minutes, one way, picked us up in her Suburban and drove us to her house. She and her husband also offered to let us stay at the house a few days extra if we wanted to extend our vacation a bit to make up for the time we lost getting there. Amazingly generous!!!
The house is beautifully furnished and very tastefully decorated. It has lots of fun extras like a Keurig with lots of drink options at your fingertips to enjoy,a well stocked pantry, a jar of wonderful bath salts to choose from by the master bathtub, and much more. There's plenty of space for a large family to sit and relax, sleep comfortably, have ample bathroom space and probably our favorite was the deck out back. It was wonderful to sit out there in the early morning or late evening and enjoy the gorgeous views.
If you're considering a vacation in the Colorado Springs area, I would highly recommend this one!!! You won't be disappointed!

Notes:
We can help schedule horse back riding in Colorado Springs, whitewater rafting on the Arkansas near Cañon City, this is a must if you come to Colorado! Fishing, my husband is quite the angler and loves to teach people to fish or just take you so you can enjoy the experience!! These few things would need to be scheduled in advance of your check in. We will get the cost for you ahead of time if you choose to do these things, I usually have discounts we can use because I buy allot of adventures for clients in my Real Estate business. Cave of the Winds and The Cliff Dwellings are about 20 minutes away near historic Manitou Springs where there is more FUN shopping and sightseeing. Of course the Air Force Academy is 5 minutes away! There really I a lot to do here. More than I can list, I will have tour books, maps and coupon books at the house for your use during your stay.
