Beautiful 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home With An Amazing View Of Pikes Peak
If you're looking for a quiet, roomy home with the most amazing view of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, look no further. Breathtaking views of Pikes Peak, the Garden of the Gods and the front range of Colorado... it is spectacular. The hot tub on the deck is probably one of the most wonderful hot tub experiences you'll have in your life. Old Colorado City and the Garden of the Gods are within walking distance. Some of the many attractions within just a few miles are Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, historical downtown Colorado Springs, the Cog Railway, Barr Trail, the Air Force Academy, the Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds, the Broadmoor Hotel, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and the New Santa Fe hiking/biking trail. If you stay for three days or more, I'll be glad to personally guide you into the Crags of Pikes Peak hiking area (very easy hike) or show you the way to a back trail to climb Pikes Peak which is very difficult requiring excellent fitness. I also have two bicycles that you can use and will be glad to direct you to some amazing bike paths. I have a canoe, but require that you've had some kind of certifiable course training for safety reasons. We can discuss in person.

About Tim Hobson
Hello! My name is Tim Hobson and I'm a Colorado native born and raised in Colorado. I've been in Colorado Springs since 1988 working as an IT Project Manager for 30 years. I've finally decided to break away from the life in a cubical and go back to my love of working with customers. I was a llama / fishing outfitter/guide back in the early 90's. I have backpacked and camped all over Colorado. My main goal is to insure you have a wonderful time when you come to stay in my home. I will go out of my way to make sure you're comfortable, cozy, entertained and happy during your stay. Therefore, this is not just your standard rental. My plan is to add services which will improve your stay. I'll be glad to discuss the activities you're planning in the Colorado Springs area and make sure your vacation is a wonderful experience! I'm looking forward to meeting you.
Tim Hobson purchased this House in 1999
Why Tim Hobson chose West Colorado Springs
You just can't beat the view from my back deck. I've had many people visit my home and are 'jaw dropped' when they walk out onto my back deck. It really is spectacular. The sunrises and sunsets are soothing to the soul. The hot tub experience is magical. You just won't believe how beautiful it is. Watching the sun go down over Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods and then star gazing into the night is an experience of a lifetime. Of course, location is everything when you come to Colorado Springs. My home is in the heart of so many wonderful attractions.
What makes this House unique
1) Free hiking/biking/fishing guide (me!) 2) Centrally located in the middle of many of the tourist attractions in the area that make the city of Colorado Springs famous. 2) Game room in the garage including ping pong and pool 3) Wildlife come right into the yard. 4) An old, lovely grand piano that sounds wonderful in the sun room. 5) Over 40 board games in the collections (so far). If you have a game you like to play and I don't have it, I'll get it! It's just another addition to my collection of games in the house. 6) One of the most amazing views in Colorado Springs. I've had many friends of mine who are Colorado Springs natives that are stunned to see that I have such an amazing view. The first thing people say when they walk onto the deck is, "Wow... this is amazing." Come see for yourself.

Great location and house.
We love this house. Very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Great view of Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. Nice hot tub and deck sitting area. We used the pool table every night and the sound system works great.
I would definitely recommend this home for your stay in Colorado Springs.
Tim the owner is gem. You couldn’t ask for nicer guy to work with. I would go back just to hang with Tim. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home, Tim.
Tim is an Amazing Host
Before we even arrived for our trip, Tim had already reached out to make us feel at home. He inquired about some of our food/coffee preferences and graciously provided us with lots of goodies. Tim was at the house when we arrived later in the evening. He walked us throughout the house showing us where everything was and how to operate the lights, tv, fireplace, hot tub, etc. He checked in with us via phone to make sure we were comfortable throughout our stay.
The house was immaculate and provided everything you needed (even fuzzy bath robes; which I loved). Lots of entertainment, pool table, ping pong, fooz ball, books to read, lots of board games, etc. The kitchen was stocked with essential pantry items. The view was amazing on the patio and the house was very centrally located to everything.
Thanks for everything Tim! We had a great time!
I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Colorado.
Awe inspiring view with great location
Wow! The home was very comfortable. There was a wide variety of mattress choices. My wife and I and our friends tried out all the beds and chose the ones most comfortable to us. I think you'll find one that's right for you. The set up was great for two families because one could use the master bedroom upstairs and another larger family can use the downstairs. The house is well maintained with lots of details including pancake mixes and other items stocked for your use.
The view was magnificent! We could see Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods. And I loved the binoculars sitting next to the two chairs that face out to the mountains. Nice touch, Tim.
We played pool, ping pong, and played darts. I usually don't care for those types of things when I travel, but it was right there and it was a lot of fun for a few minutes diversion.
The TV in the living room was large and we were able to get Netflix and Hulu so we had a Huge selection of entertainment to relax to.
Speaking of relaxing, we absolutely loved the hot tub. It was a bit cold and windy while we were there, and we found the hot tub relaxing. Of course it has a great view of the mountains. While we were in a neighborhood, it was quiet and we felt it was pretty private.
While the house was great, the location was good because we could get to everything fairly easily. It did take roughly 10 minutes to get to most restaurants and stores of interest to us, so I can't say it was just around the corner. But, for our purposes, more than sufficient. Plus, we were so close to many, many attractions.
As great as all that was, Tim just pushed this over the top as one of the best places we've stayed with HomeAway. He was extremely interested in making sure we enjoyed our stay. While I have always been treated well by all the HomeAway owners (I can't complain about a single one) Tim is on a level all his own. He wanted to talk to me directly before our trip to verify the details, give advice, and ask about our preferences. He kept in contact before we arrived and was completely flexible on our arrival time. He met us at the house and gave us a quick tour. He was just a friendly guy, who loves his house and genuinely wants his guests to have the best trip ever. Mission accomplished. Thanks Tim!
Great Stay, loved the house, host was the best.
The host Tim was very friendly and helpful, went the extra mile on everything. Bought us some breakfast items for when we arrived. Loved the location, amenities, close to a lot of shops and restaurants. Very quiet area. The house had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. Played pool and ping pong also. The hot tub was an added extra. The view was fantastic. Thanks Tim for a great experience!!
The property was gorgeous and Tim took great steps to personalize our experience. This was the best outcome for a vacation and we definitely plan on returning. These are the absolutely best hosts we've ever come across and appreciate everything they did to make our visit more personalized and memorable. We loved every minute of our stay and made many amazing memories.
Excellent Views and Accommodations
This was our second time staying at this property! Excellent views and accommodations! Tim is a wonderful and very thoughtful host!! We will return here anytime we come to Colorado Springs!
The Air Force Academy is 14 miles away. The football games are great! Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and the Broadmoor Hotel are located near each other and are about 7 miles. The Broadmoor Hotel is a historical site open to the public. There is a wonderful lake and views including restaurants and bars. You can sit and have a drink and soak in the atmosphere of a 5 star hotel (but then come back and hang out at the most amazing spot Colorado Springs... the back deck). The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is fantastic. It's one of the best zoos in the country. The entrance to the Pikes Peak Highway is about 11 miles. It's another 19 to drive to the top. All of these attractions can be found via the web on a variety of websites. Last, but not least, my house is at the gateway to the Rocky Mountains. I'll be glad to help steer you in the right direction for site seeing, hiking, biking, fishing and many other recreational activities. Bottom line: My home is centrally located to many wonderful attractions and I'll make sure you have a wonderful time during your visit. Note: If you stay for three days or more, I'll be glad to take you on a guided walk into the Crags area on the north-west slope of Pikes Peak. It's a very beautiful area and the hike is easy. We can discuss all of your needs and interests over the phone when you call.
