Very Relaxing and Welcoming
Recently our family started using VRBO instead of hotels. We are a family of five; so, renting a house gives us the biggest bang for the buck. The purpose of this visit was to spend with our oldest daughter during Parents Weekend for the United States Air Force Academy. To sum it all up, our stay was PERFECT!!!
The pictures of this property do not do it any justice. We were pleasantly surprised at how well maintained the house and property were. My wife and I are clean freaks....this place is spotless!
The owners/management really pay attention to their renters needs, for example, I am a retired Police Sergeant from the NYPD and when we pulled into the driveway, there was a brand new Police Lives Matter Flag mounted on the porch. Thank you very much, our whole family was touched by this little detail.
The first couple of days we had to make a few trips back and forth to the USAFA and were originally concerned it would be too far. In actuality, it wasn't bad at all. On average it took about 45 minutes, which wasn't bad at all, especially considering we live in the NY metropolitan area and most people have a long commute. Besides, we truly enjoyed being a little distance away, not too far, yet not to close.
The house itself was very cozy and we cherished the time we spent there. We were also fortunate enough to have a few visitors, plenty of deer (young and old alike) and a little red fox who visited everyday.
I highly recommend this property to everyone searching on VRBO. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We like to do the extra when we can to make our Guest Vacations - Perfect. Thank-you for the kind review.
Great house for us!
This house worked perfectly for our family. There was a master for suite us, the grandparents, upstairs, on the main floor two bedrooms and bath for our son’s family and a 3rd bedroom and bath on the bottom floor for our other son and wife. We all had our personal space at night.
The house was well stocked with the necessities you need to jump start your vacation. We would definitely recommend this house. The owner really goes the extra mile to make you feel at home.
Thank you. The owners and the management company appreciate the review to help others know what to expect. Glad you had a good visit.
Wonderful, comfy home!
Very nice, well maintained, comfortable, well stocked, pretty area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Thank-you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Please consider a return visit when next in our area.
Wonderful Home & Wilderness Setting!
We stayed here for Thanksgiving and it worked out perfectly! One great thing was that noise did not travel too much throughout the house as we were staying with 4 different families/couples. The beds were comfortable and the rooms and closets were spacious. Having a bathroom on each level was awesome! There were lots of toys for the kids to play with and two separate living spaces which was nice to get away if needed. The absolute best part of this home was the location! We were so close to the Pike National Forest and there was a ton of hiking! Since it was a residential area there was not much traffic. It is also close to amenities and anything you'd need, but you still feel like you are out in the woods! There are a few nuances with the house concerning water usage that had us worried about showering etc, but it all worked out fine! It would be helpful to have an actual recycling receptacle in the pantry with the trash can since recycling is required. Anyway, had a wonderful stay! Thank you!
Thank-you for your review. We have forwarded your comments to the owner for their information and appreciate your suggestions. We hope you consider a repeat visit when next gathering in the Woodland Park area again.
Peaceful, convenient, comfortable.
Wished the outdoor stairway were better lit.
Lovely house, enjoyed our stay.
