Retreat to your Monument Vacation Home

When you want to escape from the stresses of your daily life without being too uprooted from civilization, the best idea is to head to a Monument vacation home. You could stay in a tiny hotel room that lacks amenities, or you can treat yourself to the home-like comforts of a lovely vacation home nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. A Monument vacation home may feature impressive mountain views, a full kitchen, separate bedrooms, large living areas, a fireplace and other comforts that will help you to make your stay more enjoyable and relaxing.

Outdoor Recreation

Monument is ideally situated in a great location between Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak in south central Colorado, and it is located close to Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain, the Pike National Forest and several state parks. With this in mind, you will be close to ample outdoor recreational opportunities that include everything from hiking and mountain biking to picnicking, fishing, camping and more. You will have a great time in the Rockies when you stay in beautiful Monument.


When you visit a small mountain town like Leadville or Monument, you will find that there are ample shopping opportunities for you to enjoy.

If you are up for some sightseeing while in the Monument area, you will love the wide selection of sights to see. These include the statue of General Palmer that sits prominently on a city street in Colorado Springs, the Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, Palmer Lake, the Santa Fe Regional Trail, the hot springs in Buena Vista and Salida, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and much more.
