The Antler Creek House five bedroom, 3-1/2 bath private home is a Pikes Peak Region lodging and vacation rental with accommodations for fifteen people. It is located 6 miles east of Colorado Springs in a quiet recreational community, sits on a public golf course and offers mountain views.
Julie and I have lived in the Colorado Springs area for over 40 years. Shortly after we were married, we moved to the Bay Area of California as a young professional couple. But, having both grown up in Colorado, we wanted our kids to know their grandparents, enjoy the mountains, and have the advantage of growing up in a wholesome community. So, although as a couple of twenty-somethings we loved the opportunities the California lifestyle had provided for ourselves, we decided to move back to Colorado for the sake of our kids and have been here ever since. We have never regretted that decision.
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
The Antler Creek house was built as a model home by a well known local builder. We were impressed by the upgraded finishes and furnishings throughout the house, as well as the floor plan. We also loved that it was located on a great public golf course and in a recreational community within walking distance of the rec center. So we made the investment!
We had the house professionally decorated and supplied it as if we and our extended family were to vacation there ourselves. As a result, the positive feedback we have gotten from our guests has been most satisfying. Many of them have returned--thank you all!
We live in Colorado Springs ourselves, so we don't vacation in this house. So we had the house decorated with good quality furniture, furnishings, and conveniences as if we, ourselves, were staying there. For example, we wanted everyone to be able to eat at the same time as a family rather than in shifts, so there are place settings and seating at a table or counter throughout the house for everyone to eat simultaneously. And we invested in the same quality mattresses and towels/linens as we have in our own residence. We have the house professionally cleaned after each guest.
The house is great for family-oriented conversation and activities. Besides the open floor plan which enhances the feeling of togetherness, the home theater, pool table, wet bar, private putting green, library with over a hundred books (many of them inspirational), WiFi, and home audio the house it self offers, the convenient Golfing at one of the most challengining public courses West of the Mississippi, the private recreation center with basketball, workout areas, ping-pong, foosball, air hockey and swimming pool, all combine together to offer a great family vacation experience. The house itself has a picturesque setting, with a pond and the 6th green of the Antler Creek golf course in the foreground and majestic Pikes Peak as a backdrop. You can even see some snow-caps in the Sangre de Cristo range 100 miles away on a clear day!

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us this past week. It worked out perfectly for our family and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Everything went even better than we could have hoped for. We aren't able to gather often as a family so it was a very special time for us.
Thank you for being easy to work with. We will never forget our experiences with our family in Colorado.
What a great experience! Everything was very well explained prior to our arrival. The house was nicely laid out and wonderful accommodations for everyone!! One suggestion I would have is to put drapes on the doors at the top of the stairs. The adults who stay in the room might want some privacy.
Thanks for helping us make our family vacation a success!!
This was our first time renting a house for vacation. We were apprehensive about the process.
The house was fantastic, better than I even imagined. Don was accommodating and super easy to work with. Everything was just as (or better ) than described. The whole experience was flawless and made for a wonderful vacation for our whole family. The rec center was excellent and the staff accommodating. I definitely will book again thru VRBO and hope to visit Colorado Springs again soon.
This worked out great as a home base for our son's lacrosse tournament over in Colorado Springs. I only wish we had time to play the beautiful golf course right behind the house!
My husband and I recently visited the Springs for a friend's wedding, and we were looking for a place where we could stay with a group of friends. Mr. Wilkin was a pleasure to work with, and the home is absolutely beautiful. It was spacious and perfect for fitting all of us in. We really enjoyed our stay, and are looking for any excuse to come out and visit again!
We very much enjoyed our stay at your home. The home and location were ideal for our family. We found things clean, comfortable and very "live-able". We found plenty of kitchenware for our crew and nice to have "start up" supplies as far as paper goods. It was especially nice having access to the club house and pool. Our only concerns were 1)the pullout sofa bed in the downstairs bedroom...we found it no where near comfortable for anyone to sleep on and 2)the back deck...very concerned about splinters for the kids feet and more important we felt the railing on the porch would NOT pass a safety inspection. That would be our top priority for repair.
